Midterm Stress is basically the Worst Kind of Stress Ever. Except maybe Planning for Disney World Stress.
It doesn’t help that I’ve got 4 events for my fraternity this week and an extremely busy weekend ahead.
I’m dealing with it One Thing At A Time–which, includes, dropping one of my classes.
I used to think dropping a class was shameful, or a sign of weakness. But mostly now I see it as Prioritizing Properly.
When I take only 12 hours per semester, my grades are significantly better than when I take 15. If that means I have to supplement with summer classes, then so be it. I would rather have shorter breaks, graduate in four years, and never worry about failing a class again–because with only 12 hours in my pocket, failing a class is basically out of the question.
In other News this week, I got my Littles last night! Matching was long and stressful, but I now have Twins. It’s exciting, but also a little bit stressful; I have to get them their first bout of gifts for Thursday.
If there’s anything I’m learning from this week, it’s that Meal Prep is basically impossible in the face of Midterms.
I’ve got four recipes I want to try, none of which are in the works to be made. I pulled out all the spices to season chicken, but then I realized I was behind on my Bullet Journaling and blogging.
I’m not sure if I’m struggling because of midterms or because I’m trying to track too much, but I haven’t been prioritizing BuJo’ing the way I normally would.
Think it’s time to take a step back and focus on maintaining my Habits. My Goals this Week are simple:
-Go to All my Classes (Successful so far!)
-Do Yoga M – F (Not successful so far)
Short list, small accomplishment, slowly steering myself back in the direction I need to be.
Progress and success are not linear.
Neither are Midterms, it seems.
