I’ve been having trouble writing this week due to the extra stressors and I noticed something that helped me get through it.
Once I told my teachers that I wasn’t sure if I could get things done on time because of the other things I was dealing with, I was able to finish the projects I needed to finish and hand them in.
I suppose I was using my teachers to keep myself accountable in a way, but it also helped me to purged the heavy stuff from my system, so I could focus on the things I needed to get done.
I’ve been mostly doing well with school work. I’m ahead in most classes and I’m hoping none of my classmates are comparing their progress to mine. I’ve been writing since I was 9 and seriously for 7 years now. I’ve written a novel and have two others half done, I used to manage projects for a living, and I’ve taken a lot of post secondary courses. I’ve especially taken online ones with a large participation component that I totally sucked at, so I’m trying very hard to keep my marks up while doing other things.
Things like attempting Ni Dan grading again this weekend. I’ve lengthened the cords on my fancy pants, rolled the lint roller over everything, ironed it, and packed it. I need to pack a few things like underwear, socks, tops, makeup, and toiletries (especially earplugs), then chill for a bit before bed. I should have a little time tomorrow to do some small things before my friend picks me up and we set off to collect our third friend and head to the GTA.
I’ll try to cue up a post for tomorrow. I might not get anything up Saturday between grading and drinking.
Maybe I’ll do that quiz thing before the alcohol thing…
Guid cheerio the nou,
