Classes have become overwhelming as midterms are quickly approaching. While I do not have any “tests”, I do have a couple of assignments I have to do for it. By a couple, I mean a lot. I’m constantly exhausted with the way my schedule is. On Mondays, I have class from 8 am until 6 pm. With the 40 minute commute both ways and getting ready to go to school in the mornings, i end up waking up at 5:50 and not getting home until 7 pm. It’s a long day, especially for me. I make the most of my breaks between classes but it’s still tough. I’m constantly playing catch up on Monday’s and Tuesday’s. On Wednesdays I have to wake up at 5:30 just to make it to my cooperating school at 7:30. It takes me nearly an hour to get there in the mornings with traffic. I burn out so early in the week.
My head is acting up again. I am getting headaches in the week. From not eating enough, not early enough, or not drinking enough water – I guess. One of my text books is ridiculously heavy and I know the days I have to carry it, I always get a headache from the stress on my neck. I need a rolling bag of some sort.
Despite all that, I’m doing incredibly well in all my classes. The lowest grade I’ve gotten so far is a 94. Good start to the semester. If I can keep the grades up, the end of the semester will be a breeze. Midterms really determine what you get at the end of the year. In three of my classes, we’re allowed to revise at least one of our papers and resubmit them. I know I didn’t do too well on one of my papers and am waiting to get it back to revise it.
Mondays are the worst day for headaches. I’m tired all day. I have two three hour long classes. By the time 3 o’clock rolls around, I’m gone. My head aches and aches. I’m nearly completely out of it. And I have an forty minute drive home ahead of it. It’s the longest 40 minutes of my life. It’s nearly dark by the time I get out. People drive with their high beams on. No one ever shuts them off. I can’t close my eyes, and no matter what direction I look I’m still blinded. It’s rough. LED lights should be outlawed. I can never see after someone with them drives by.
I did run into one of my professors. She’s been having migraines again with the hormone replacement from her hysterectomy. She says she’s been thinking about me, and my head. I’ve been busy but I’ve been staying on top of everything.
Also, I think I’m going to try posting once a week instead of three times a week. So,I’m not worrying about it too much. I have a couple posts in mind but I haven’t had time to sit down and write them out. I’ll post on Wednesdays and once on the weekend.
