Yep, it's been a while.  I've been meeting myself coming and going and I don't feel like I'm getting anything accomplished.  Last week was a test on Machiavelli; next week I have a paper due for which I have not written a single word and I am extremely stressed about it.  I'm not doing as well this semester as I would like.  I am also not as focused as I usually am.  School always comes first with me and I have been unable to make that happen this time around.  Babysitting duties and other peoples drama are increasingly interfering with school work and I'm realizing that I am not good at setting boundaries.  On the other hand, should I always be placing school ahead of everything else? 

Just three more week, two papers, and three tests and it will all be over until August.  Not that I'm counting the days, or anything...

Great to see you back! It must be a Libran thing because I feel exactly the same way about school and really feel I'm not doing as well. It is definitely time for a holiday! Good luck with it all and summer will soon be with you! X

Glad to see you back!!!! Hang in there! I am finishing up my BA this month after 5 full-time years. I can tell you that I didn't always put school first. Do whatever you have to do to not quit and keep plugging! Just remember....what do you call a guy or girl who barely passes med school? "Doctor." I remind myself of that every single day that I worry about my grades!

If it helps at all, I also am sending good wishes to you. School work can be so exhausting. I hope it goes by soon, and that you can stay motivated to finish. We are all behind you and wish you the very best. Keep us posted!
