God I’m tired.
I love my job. I love working for the university. I love working in the math department. I love my bosses. I love everything about it.
It is exhausting. I mean the work itself isn’t. I’m just having to spend more energy in general than I have in a long while, so I’m tired by the time I get home. Half the time I come home and nap, before waking up and working on homework.
Homework. Ugh. It isn’t like the number of assignments lessens based on the amount of job work I do. I will say this though, having the university library right across the street from my office is useful. I have not done it yet, but once I find my rhythm and I’m no longer in as great of need of an after work nap, I fully intend to stay at the library a couple of days a week to get coursework done.
Once I’m in face to face classes I’ll be staying behind at the school anyway to go to class after work. I work Monday-Thursday 9-3, for the most part. Balancing the schedule of 2 adults, and 3 kids will bring some variance to that, but that is the general schedule.
I took pity on myself and dropped one of my classes this term. I had it so I was taking to courses at once for the last 6 weeks of the term. But until I find my rhythm and balance of work/family/school, I need to not take more than one at a time. Usually it isn’t really an issue anyway. The only reason I was going to be doubling up was because I took an extra 6 weeks off at the beginning of this term. Needed it. Don’t regret it. I just won’t be going to school full-time this term. And that’s fine.
My psychiatrist isn’t leery about me working to begin with. I’m sort of healthy enough for it, but I tend to jump into the deep end thinking I can float no problem, and then end up starting to sink. I think only taking 1 class at a time will get her to stop worrying some.
Alrighty. Time to stop procrastinating this econ paper that refuses to write itself. I’ll check in next Tuesday, maybe.
