The theme for this next school year is…BALANCE!
In case you have been wondering where I have been, school has taken up my entire life! I can honestly say that I have never endured a harder academic quarter than spring quarter IN MY LIFE. On top of five classes, two of which with weekly quizzes, I had my internship, in addition to another internship for about a month.
RJ and I calculated it out, and just work and school alone, I was putting in 40 hours/week. Throw in another 20 hours for homework and that makes it a grand total of 60 hours. No time for Navs, no time for people, no time for myself, very little time for the husby…and even worse, less naps!!
But what could I have done in order to have made my life more balanced last quarter? I mean, seriously…I couldn’t back out of internship, I can’t skip (too much) school, I can’t stop doing homework…I had to keep reminding myself that it just comes with the season. This season of my life includes major sacrifice, studying, school work, and little time for myself. Which is hard, because I came from a job where I had so much freedom and was encouraged to seek balance.
But it appears that spring quarter was the hardest quarter with the most number of classes, thank God! And thank God I am not in med school, I have no idea how they do it! From here on out, the amount of schoolwork will hopefully lessen and life will become more balanced.
So if you were wondering were I have been…there you have it. Now I’m a second year.
