Sigh of Relief

I woke up this morning and felt like a new person.  I feel like it's some BIG accomplishment that I've made it to Friday.  Why?  I guess because things feel so overwhelming right now.  However, today I feel like I haven't a care in the world.  Although, if we're being honest here, I know that tomorrow will be a different story! ha!  I have to work tomorrow - we have a Saturday rotation once every quarter.  Somehow, I lucked out and had a rotation twice this quarter.  But, that's neither here nor there...

My paper has been turned in.  My presentation has been completed and presented.  My homework for one class completed.  What's next on the agenda?  Homework in Econ and 2 finals next week.  Then, it's Christmas break!

On a side note, it's been pointed out to me a few times that I stress out over school related things so easily.  Well, in my defense...  I have a 2.68 GPA for undergrad.  Seriously, I just wanted out and I didn't care so much about my GPA.  Heck, I was just glad that I was getting a degree after 5 years!  So, when I made the decision to go after my MBA, I decided that I was actually going to try in grad school.  That way, I could proudly display my GPA on my resume.  I know, most employers don't really care about that stuff, but it matters to me.  Anyhow.  So, yes, I freak out now over school.  I want to maintain a 4.0 and let me just say that it is hard work to maintain high grades and work a full time job.  Almost every single day I am working on some type of homework during my lunch break.  Seriously.  I've learned to use every single bit of spare time that I have to do homework so that I wont have to do it at home.  Instead, I can spend most of my home time with my husband.  (I say "most" because I've been doing a lot of homework at home here lately...)

So, anyways, all of that to say, today feels awesome.  I know that tomorrow will be a different story, but I'm taking advantage of today AND now ya'll know why I freak out so much :)

I'm a stresser, too. I get it! :) I am glad you are feeling better today and hope that this next week flies by so you can have a break and rest up!

Yay for today! Great job on your GPA. I'm sure it's stressful now, but you'll be able to relax in the long run. Have a stress-free day! Maybe you should make one day a week an official "stress-free" day. One day you can slack off homework a little or even just make it a mindset: "I'm not allowed to stress about this today, I'll just have to stress tomorrow." I dunno. Just an idea from one stress-ball to another. ;)

I'm the same way. I had a 2.5 up until my last semester and decided I actually wanted to try. I had a 3.5 my final semester, and my first job out of college, the HR manager asked me what my GPA was.. I said, "I graduated with a 3.5." TECHNICALLY... it wasn't a lie. But don't you wish someone had kicked you in the butt earlier to make you try harder to begin with? I sure do!

Glad there is an end in sight to all of the school work and paper writing and finals. Hoping you fully enjoy the break that is ahead for you!
