Hello, hello! I haven't posted since the 13th, and to say my head is clogged with words that need to get out is an understatement.
Why did I think taking SIX graduate courses was a good idea? True, my classes are not MBA level difficult, but they are still pretty time consuming, and six was probably pushing it.
I will make it though. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I only have ... 6 assignments, 1 2500 word paper, 1 final test, 1 portfolio, 2 lesson plans, 1 final meeting where I verbally defend my knowledge of the course standards, and a professional development to write and then I'M DONE!
Yeah, typing that out was a little overwhelming.
Other than that, things are okay. I'm hanging in there. I need to get better at reaching out to the people around me when I get stressed or down about something. Sometimes instead of handling the stress, I just ignore it, and as Celia said once... "If you don't take care of the stress, your body will."
Besides classes - work is going great. I haven't worked as much at the Agency this month because I just haven't had time. Subbing has kept me pretty busy, and I'm really excited to finish up next weeks classes so I can sub everyday.
Running is not going so great. I'm struggling to fit everything in. If I was morning person this problem would be solved, but I am a total bear in the mornings and each time I have tried to run in the AM it was a complete failure.
I'm planning on doing 2-3 runs this weekend (one today) and hopefully Zumba Saturday morning. This week I ran one 6 mile run on Monday and then I did the Grand Blue Mile on Tuesday. After that, classes took over my life.
I'm tired. I'm ready for summer. I'm frustrated with so many things. I'm trying to ignore the things out of my control. I'm trying to keep the smile on my face. I'm being very vague right now.
So, yeah. This was my random update.
How have YOU been??
