....And We're Off!
A day of anxiety. What does that mean? With me it could be a variety of things. But today is my first day of spring semester. Do you hearing me biting my nails in the background? I had hoped they'd post my classes yesterday so I could get a jumpstart. Of course they didn't so I was on guard today. One by one they were finally up on the website (for those who don't know, I'm earning my degree to become a registered veterinary technician through online classes). As I've stated in previous posts, this semester could get interesting considering I'm taking my heaviest class load (4 classes) and entering my final level of classes (yes!) I also work about 50 hours a week as a vet tech. Add those things together, along with all the other things I need and want to do in my personal life, and it can become overwhelming. Every few moments I've been having minor mental freakouts today. But I just keep telling myself, "breathe" After the first week or two I get settled in and the freakouts become less frequent. Just get me through the next two weeks. Heck...get me through the next 12 weeks, then another 12 weeks and I'll be D-O-N-E!
