Finals were yesterday.
Well…for at least the next 14 days its over. I start my new program on December 16th.
Work is very stressful. My family life isn’t much better. But today I feel oddly….peaceful.
The last few days I realized just how much this education meant to me, as I think I am approaching burn-out.
I jump every time I hear a cellphone, if I hear something that vaguely sounds like a vibration (my ringer is on vibrate and ring) I immediately begin grasping wildly for my phone.
Yesterday I accidentally forgot my cellphones at home while we went to Fantastic Caverns with my In-Laws and my daughter. Once I realized that I had forgotten my phone I all but had a anxiety attack. It was not only embarrassing, but disturbing. I have buried myself in my job to the point that it’s all I think about. At night, in the day, in my sleep.
This degree is my path to a better job. I just hope I can find one before this kills me.
Today none of that matters though. Today the phone calls cause me to jump, but I can deal with it.
I accomplished a goal, and something I busted ass for and have spent countless hours between my job and family to accomplish.
Today I am on top of the world.
You may resume the oft-scheduled repeated kicks to the head tomorrow
