I have to admit, I am completely and totally burnt out of school right now. Since the start of freshman year, I have not had a break (besides Christmas and Spring Break). This year, I did not even get a legitimate Spring Break because the 2 community colleges I am taking classes at had different breaks. As I am saying (well, typing) this, I am just shaking my head in frustration. I may not have technically had a Spring Break, but my mind was on some form of break. I have been so frustrated, angry, exhausted, anxious, hopeless, and lacking any form of motivation. I was cooking dinner tonight when I realized that I completely missed a midterm for an online class. How does one even do that?? Luckily, I emailed my professor and he knows about the medical conditions I have and is letting me take it tomorrow, but still. I have always been on top of my work, going to the library, studying as needed, and this semester, I feel as if I'm never really in the moment. I am always worrying about something, whether it be my back, my weight, if I'm going to eat, trying to stay awake, work, etc. Plus, the fact that I am still fighting with bronchitis is not helping. All I want to do is be back at a university where I can do my own thing. Maybe leaving Radford wasn't the best decision, but with my health, I did not have any other options.
But... enough about me whining. I've been catching up on work for 2 hours already, not to mention the fact that I was up until 2 am last night reading and catching up on assignments. All I know is that tonight and tomorrow are going to be really long and I can't wait until Thursday (a day off from work and only my history class). If I stick to the schedule I made, I should be all caught up by Wednesday night and then Thursday, I can relax and catch up on sleep! I swear, the day when I can lace up my running shoes and hit the trails again, I will be the happiest gal around!
I hope y'all had a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day/weekend! On a happy note, I did experience my first green beer ever (well, more accurately, a sip of the boy's because I did not want to get sick from gluten). I have to admit, I do not think I will ever get used to seeing people drink colored beer!

Now, let's start the week with a good motivational quote:
Take the first step in faith.
You don’t have to see the whole staircase,
just take the first step.”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
