All was well...until I got home...then reality hit.
I have a HUGE project due on Monday for my Social Studies Education methods class. This project requires multiple hours of work and will most likely take up a great deal of my free weekend. I have to work from 5:30 p.m. to midnight tonight, get back up Saturday and train a whole bunch of people at my work from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., then work from noon till about 8 p.m. or so. I will most likely have to come home and work on said project for a considerable amount of time, then hopefully go out for whatever short amount of fun I can allow myself this weekend. I then work at 11 a.m. on Sunday until about 4 p.m., with the remainder of the day being used to complete the project. Sometime during this weekend, I also have to finish a History report, finish my observation/teaching journal, and finalize hotel plans.
Do you see the dilemma? I have all of these great things surrounding me, yet no time to enjoy them. Between work and school, 90% of my time has been accounted for and taken away. I feel that my life has the opportunity to be so much more fulfilling and fun, but my hands are tied. When I am around my friends and out enjoying myself, I really feel like the luckiest and happiest person in the world. When I go to work and school, all of this happiness slowly fades away until I am back to regular old Jason *eek :P*, just trying to get through things. How do I balance this? How do I stop the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs (if you consider my downs a REAL down...you all know that even when I'm down, I'm still optimistic) in my life? I know, I know... "WORK LESS HOURS CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!" Well thank you :). I don't know the point of this post. I guess it's just good to let people know how I'm feeling sometimes, what is going through my head. Anyway...
Have a great weekend everybody! Hopefully I will update again before Spring Break hits, but if not, ENJOY YOURSELVES, BE SAFE (BUT NOT TOO SAFE.. :D), and most importantly, make sure to get all of the sand out of your crack. Laterz :)
