TGIF

I’ve been a bit quiet the last couple of weeks. One of my classes is absolutely killing me. Last night I turned in a fourteen page economic report and in two weeks I have another ten page industry analysis due. Two weeks after that, a twenty page equity valuation report. And this is just for one class. *crying* 

Aside from being chin-deep in income statements and balance sheets, I have just not been in a very good mood. I’ve been really irritable, little things setting me off and then I’m just grumpy the whole rest of the night. When I’m in a foul mood, it’s hard for me to be productive. I think I’m just really stressed out. I’m still learning to manage all the different roles that I’ve taken on, and it’s not easy. On top of my classes, cooking/cleaning/laundry/maintaining home life, work, and looking for a job (which is a whole blog post in itself), (I have also excluded a social life from this list because it is currently nonexistent), I’ve just started planning graduation weekend in May.

While most people cannot wait until graduation, I just am praying I live through it. Andrew and I are both graduating the same weekend, but we are also moving four hours back to St. Louis. Both Andrew and I’s families are coming up for the weekend, so I’ve been trying to coordinate with everyone when who is getting in, and what we’re going to eat and do, and then renting the trailer, and then who is going to tow the trailer. People are backing out and then oh wait! Grandpa’s coming. I want to pull my hair out.

Sometimes I think that I’m doing too much, but I don’t really have an option at the moment. Andrew is just as busy as I am (though he’s doing a lot better job than I am at not being grumpy). I’ve actually been staying late at work because I don’t want to go home and face all of the things that I have to do.

I’m really looking forward to our spring break vacation at the end of the month to Colorado. It will be so nice to be with Andrew and not have every word that is out of our mouth be about work or school. We tried to have a date night last night to take a moment for ourselves but everything just went wrong. I thought Andrew knew how to get to the restaurant and Andrew thought I knew how to get to the restaurant and I was already hangry. Then when we finally got there, there was a group of about 100 students outside of the restaurant, waiting for their tables. At that point I was just done with the evening, so we went home and by that time it was too late to do anything else. So we just went to bed 

I like to keep my blog pretty positive, so I knew if I were to write anything I would just be complaining, and I’m a firm believer that if you have nothing nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all. At the same time, I want to be very real. I want to be very transparent that my life is not always rainbows and unicorns.

I would like to end this post by taking some wise words from Rebecca Black, “It’s Friday.” TGIF.

  1. Wow, that one class is crazy!! The longest paper I’ve ever written in college was 8 pages. You only have about two months left so hang in there! I know you can do it, you’re really smart. :)

    i’m looking for jobs too. The jobs I’m applying for need people to start now though and I can’t start until June. But it helps that I’m taking easy and fun classes this semester; it’s been an awesome semester for me!

    Good luck with everything!
    You know Rebecca Black is a popular you tuber now. LOL

    1. It is absolutely insane! I’m used to homework and assignments, but these long papers and reports just take so much time! It’s not necessarily hard, just a lot of work.

      I’m glad your semester is going well! I’m having a really hard time finding jobs that I am even qualified for. Most places want 5 years of experience in the field… So I’m having a hard time finding some entry level jobs. Just trying not to freak out about it!

      HAHA is she really? The last I had heard from her was when she released “Saturday” lol.

      1. I’m subscribed to her. LOL https://www.youtube.com/user/rebecca

        I’m having a hard time too! Have you not been getting any responses? The national economy isn’t doing well right now and usually the economy goes down before a nationwide election.
        So I think we have to stick it out and be patient. :/

        1. Okay, now I have to check out her videos lol.

          I haven’t actually submitted any applications yet because I won’t be available to interview for a couple more months. I’ve just been trying to get a feel for what’s out there. I probably won’t start applying until I actually get home just because I have too much else going on. And honestly, if I’m unemployed for a couple months, I’m okay with that. I need a break, haha. Just not too long of one ;)

          1. Thats a good idea actually. I’ve been submitting applications but I think I haven’t been getting anything because I’m saying I can’t start until June. Yeah I don’t mind if I start working in August. My parents are helping me out, fortunately!

            Yeah, Rebecca Black works with youtube studios in LA with jennxpenn and other people. It’s like my guilty pleasure watching all of them. hahahaha

  2. *hug* Man no wonder your stressed! You have so much going on! Try to relax a little, kay?

    But I know how you feel. I can get all cranky like that too. XD At least you’ll have some time with Andrew eventually. =3

  3. Whoa, that is a lot of work to do and just for one class. I am sure that you will get through this. You can do it! :D

    Argh. That would be really difficult to organise two graduations at the same time on top of everything else! I can understand why you would not be in a good mood with so much stress. I hope that you can have a moment to catch a breath.

    Does Friday come after Thursday? xD

  4. I get you about not wanting to turn your blog into a venting space, but I think sometimes doing it every once in a while really helps. And from what I’ve read, I think you deserve a post to vent about all that’s going on because it sounds like it’s full of crazies with all those assignments and the graduation plans with moving on top of it! Ack! I can’t really offer you much advice, but what I can tell you is to just take things little by little. Doing a task each day for your big project really helps. I’ve learned that the hard way LOL.

    Anyway, I do hope you’ll survive the next few weeks. At the least, I wish you and Andrew a wonderful time at your spring vacation! It’s a well-deserved trip ^^

  5. I think it’s great that you talk about when life isn’t perfect, and it’s obvious from your post that you’re still being positive despite everything :) Do you have a board or post-its or something to count off the days? When I was close to graduating I found it pretty therapeutic to be able to tick a day off!

  6. Hugs. I know what you mean by having so much to do! It is killing me, plus I’ve been sleepy recently to the point that it’s interfering with my life. Argh. Gotta go to my psychiatrist and find out why it is happening so much. Also, I have other concerns, that need worrying about. I hope we both find the strength to make it through so much!
