Thanksgiving was wonderful with my daughters, nephew and husband. We had a good time being together, shopping at a craft store, playing games, watching tv. Nothing spectacular or extravagant went on but we had a good time just being together.
However, this week has been hell for me. It is no one’s fault, work hasn’t been bad, classes haven’t been bad. I just want to be DONE! Officially I have four class periods left, one chapter to read, two assignments for that chapter and a final exam for that class, and for my other class I have one project to finish with a reflective paper. If I thought I could still maintain my grades I would say – to hell with it all and just let it all go by the wayside.
I can’t do that because my grades would suffer. Tonight I’ve spent an hour and half working on my final project. Tomorrow night I will read the chapter and work on the two assignments. I know there isn’t a lot left to do and I just need to dig in and do what’s left. I’m just out of energy.
In two weeks I will be done with not only the semester but with the degree. I’ll be able to go back to writing on a regular basis (need to have several alarms available so I can set them and get to bed at a good time). I was hoping for a federal grant to assist with the costs of writing but I didn’t get one. It won’t stop me – I’m just going to move forward at a slower pace and budget out what I can afford to do.
First though, I have to get through these two weeks and all the assignments. I know I will but in this moment I feel worn out and ready for it all to be done and go away!!!!
