Last week was a testament to the phrase “I’m chasing my tail.” I was forever just ten steps behind my shadow and could NOT get caught up. All direct results of the choices I made with my time, so let me get that out here from the beginning. I take full responsibility and am not blaming anything other than the fact that I am not independently wealthy, so as could have a house of employees to cook, clean, do laundry, pay bills, pack for trips, shop for things to take on trips, while I do homework, become brilliant at time management and live happily ever after in Lake Como.
Yeah, it’s all on me.
This week I was desperate in my online class. It’s one that can get away in the blink of an eye. I knew the weekend was coming up, and I had tentative plans to go to Arkansas with Lynn, and see my family. That did not happen. By the time Thursday night got here, it was perfectly clear that once I got off work on Saturday I wouldn’t be leaving the house again until today. Which sucks because I am really really missing my family. I was talking to a brand new client on Saturday, and we “know” each other because of our hometown and of FB but we really don’t KNOW each other and I started talking about my sister and just started crying.
great first impression.
*my stylist needs a mood stabilizer.
But I did everything. did you hear me?
I DID ALL OF THE THINGS!
book finished, homework posted=check
short essay written, uploaded=check
group project managed, edits made, revisions polished=check
group project uploaded=check
short essay written and uploaded=check
registered and paid for the GRE test=check. I’ll be testing out on October 9th. It’s a Tuesday. The Tuesday before we leave for Harvest Fest for Fall Break. Oh the stress relief I will feel THEN.
So, all of that to say this: I’m not getting behind this week. I’m staying ON TRACK and focused. I’m researching ideas, going to begin pre-writing papers, I’ve got some notes to discuss with another professor today about submitting a paper into our literary conference and presenting.
Oh yeah, I’m flying to San Diego on Thursday morning.
So I’ve also got to gather some essentials for that, get the house spiffed up and stocked up for Laura to live here. (*my remote control to the tv that controls power and volume is brokedown. I need that to be fixed in an easy manner and really just want someone to tell me what to do. any thoughts?) I’ve got to get laundry clean. I have a fear of showing up and looking like the fat ole hillbilly cousin. Hair done tomorrow so that will help with the body spiffing.
It’s kind of amazing isn’t it?
If anyone needs me, I’ll be over here.
Chasing my tail.
