I’ve always been a busy person, but this semester just seems killer. Four days a week I have class, then work, then class again. My days range from 8.5 hours (on Fridays, the one weekday I don’t have class) to 13–and that’s not including the hour and a half of travel time! Tuesdays and Thursdays I leave my apartment at 6:30am and don’t get back until 9:30 pm. Those days I don’t even turn on my computer when I get home. I eat and go straight to bed. Mondays and Wednesdays are a bit better–later start and earlier finish–but by the time Friday comes around, I am exhausted. I spend the weekend studying, doing homework, doing random chores, and just resting up so I can do it all again the following week. Needless to say, I don’t have much of a social life at the moment….I barely even have time to blog! Any posts during the week are usually composed during a particularly boring or repetitive lecture that I should be paying attention to.
I don’t mind being busy–I like having things to do–but everyone has a point where “comfortably busy” becomes “oh my god, is it ever going to end????” What I do isn’t hard. Classes are all intro business with minimal studying required, and work is repetitive, but that doesn’t stop it from being draining. Winter break can’t get here soon enough. A vacation away from all of this is just what the doctor ordered. Now, I just have to make it through three more months first….
