I wish I had more time. I swear leap year should be a holiday; a holiday to just catch up on unfinished business. I cannot wait until the summer; maybe I'll relax by then. I just wish I had more time to cook, clean, and garden. I miss my garden.
Work: 34 hours per week
School: 10 hours of doctoral classes per week
Homework: 40 hours per week (technically)
Commute Time: 5-7.5 hours per week (depends on traffic)
Total: 89-91.5 hours per week
We have 168 hours per week, and I spend 89 hours between work and school; that leaves 79 hours for sleeping, eating, showering, working out, church, and anything fun. So if I get six hours of sleep per night, that leaves 19 hours for the remainder of items. No wonder why I'm stressed out. No wonder why friends have dropped me. I do have to say, though, I know who my friends are during this stressful time. I know who I can rely on for this really crazy year in which I decided to do 10 credit hours each semester so I'm not in school forever and my life can start moving forward. Five more weeks...just five more weeks and all I have to do is pass. Okay, maybe I should say six more weeks if you include my qualifying exam. I'm so glad I'm starting yoga next week; I hear it does wonders in reducing stress.
