I have been SO stressed these past couple of weeks! Ok, maybe not stressed.. just really really busy.
A normal week for me usually consists of school, work, essays, exams, small group, dinner at the in-laws, weight watchers (yes, and its working lol), gym time, and maybe a little study time in between. And let's not begin to talk about weekends! All the time I couldn't fit into the week, I try to make up for on the weekend. This is just not possible.
I'm always going somewhere, I'm always busy, and I think my grades are going to suffer because of it. Granted, being busy is a good thing. But the most important thing to me right now is my grades and my school. I HAVE to get at least a 3.0 this semester to be admitted to the School of Journalism. Most of my grades are good; I got an A- on my first exam for Media & Society, a double A+ on my first paper for American History (totally pulled that one out of my butt), and I have a pretty good feeling that I did good on the second paper as well. I've been getting mediocre grades in my Fundamentals in Management for Hospitality class, but I have a few extra credit points that I think I will benefit from. The worst class for me this semester is Social Choice Math.. It's not necessarily a hard math, like stats or calculus, but it's just very meticulous. The professor speaks at a rate of one word a minute (don't believe me? sit in my class!) and, to be honest, I didn't really study for the first two exams. So, pretty much, I have to get an 80 or above on every one of my next exams (including the final!) to get at least a C+. :(
So I have to start focusing more on my school work and less on my social life. My mom always tells me that I can't be everywhere at once, and that is very true. I have to start learning to say no, as much as I may want to join along. Hopefully, by cutting some things out of my week, I'll be able to focus better in the important things and get to where I want to be.
I have the whole summer to hang out. ;)
