Wake me when the semester's over
I knew I was taking on too much this semester... I work full time at a CPA office, in the Litigation Department and I'm taking two courses for my MA in History. To put this in perspective, my first semester of grad school, I took two classes and that was it!! I didn't work.
This is insane! Why, you may ask would I put myself through this?! I've been in grad school for two years. However, last year I only took one class per semester, since I was planning my wedding and starting a new job. So, it's time to finish up this degree so I can get on with the rest of my life.
In the weeks preceeding Thanksgiving, I was in charge of leading one of the seminars, so that took up a solid week. I knew I had three papers to write, but (see first line of this blog...) I didn't get started on them. So, here I am three weeks before the semester ends and tons of work to do!
Meanwhile, my husband was feeling under the weather over Thanksgiving and I feel like my body is trying to fight off a bug, because again.. my blood sugars are running high. I'm combatting it with lots of insulin and trying to find time to work out. I just KNOW I'm going to come down with something as soon as the semester ends and the holidays begin. That always happens to me! My body (and mind) build up a defense while I'm busy and just cannot afford to be sick. So then it hits me as soon as I relax and let my guard down. Anyone else have that experience?!
So, Cuban Revolution paper first... then the biggie on race and class issues in the workplace and finally a short review of a Central American history book that I haven't even cracked open yet! Wish me luck!
