I’ve been a bit quiet the last couple of weeks. One of my classes is absolutely killing me. Last night I turned in a fourteen page economic report and in two weeks I have another ten page industry analysis due. Two weeks after that, a twenty page equity valuation report. And this is just for one class. *crying*
Aside from being chin-deep in income statements and balance sheets, I have just not been in a very good mood. I’ve been really irritable, little things setting me off and then I’m just grumpy the whole rest of the night. When I’m in a foul mood, it’s hard for me to be productive. I think I’m just really stressed out. I’m still learning to manage all the different roles that I’ve taken on, and it’s not easy. On top of my classes, cooking/cleaning/laundry/maintaining home life, work, and looking for a job (which is a whole blog post in itself), (I have also excluded a social life from this list because it is currently nonexistent), I’ve just started planning graduation weekend in May.
While most people cannot wait until graduation, I just am praying I live through it. Andrew and I are both graduating the same weekend, but we are also moving four hours back to St. Louis. Both Andrew and I’s families are coming up for the weekend, so I’ve been trying to coordinate with everyone when who is getting in, and what we’re going to eat and do, and then renting the trailer, and then who is going to tow the trailer. People are backing out and then oh wait! Grandpa’s coming. I want to pull my hair out.
Sometimes I think that I’m doing too much, but I don’t really have an option at the moment. Andrew is just as busy as I am (though he’s doing a lot better job than I am at not being grumpy). I’ve actually been staying late at work because I don’t want to go home and face all of the things that I have to do.
I’m really looking forward to our spring break vacation at the end of the month to Colorado. It will be so nice to be with Andrew and not have every word that is out of our mouth be about work or school. We tried to have a date night last night to take a moment for ourselves but everything just went wrong. I thought Andrew knew how to get to the restaurant and Andrew thought I knew how to get to the restaurant and I was already hangry. Then when we finally got there, there was a group of about 100 students outside of the restaurant, waiting for their tables. At that point I was just done with the evening, so we went home and by that time it was too late to do anything else. So we just went to bed
I like to keep my blog pretty positive, so I knew if I were to write anything I would just be complaining, and I’m a firm believer that if you have nothing nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all. At the same time, I want to be very real. I want to be very transparent that my life is not always rainbows and unicorns.
I would like to end this post by taking some wise words from Rebecca Black, “It’s Friday.” TGIF.
