I am still alive, though it didn't feel like it the last few days. I just wanted to post an update since it's been a couple of weeks since my last post. I haven't had time or energy to work much on blog stuff. It's finals time, and that means stress to the max. I had this crazy long paper due and of course, I waited until the last minute to do the majority of it. That's just how I roll. When I don't want to do something, I work best under pressure when I know I have to get it done. So last Friday night, I slept less than 2 hours.
This week I caught a stomach bug that lasted from Monday to last night. I still went to work since I'm new and can't afford to miss days, especially when I don't have sick time yet. I've been so tired and lethargic that I've barely even wanted to open up my laptop. I'm the type of person who checks their computer first thing in the morning, first thing after work, and then before bed. I have definitely not been doing that and have been focusing on getting rest. I'm still adjusting to having to get up at 6 in the morning some days for my new job, which is a struggle for someone who doesn't get to sleep until 1 or 2 in the morning. I have been taking naps and going to bed earlier than usual from being so exhausted. My body really needed it. After a nap last night and then a good 8-9 hours of sleep last night, I woke up this morning finally not feeling nauseous and able to eat things.
As much as I want this blog to be a priority, sometimes life happens and it gets to be lower on the list. I wish I could do nothing but blog, but that's not realistic for me. The light at the end of the tunnel is that after this week, I won't have to worry about school or homework anymore. I can't tell you how amazing it's going to feel when I can get home from work and not have to feel this pressing weight of knowing there's so much I have to do that I really don't want to do. It's going to feel amazing when I know that all of my free time is MY free time, that nothing will have to go to anything I don't want it to. Yay freedom! I can finally devote more time to my blog and hopefully to other things that I haven't been able to like playing music and reading. The end is near, and it cannot come any sooner!
I have a lot of photos backlogged that I need to edit and write posts for (including ones from Florida still...oops), so expect some new posts very VERY soon. My last assignment is due Saturday! Just a couple more dayyyys. :D
