Can a girl get some balance in her life?

This is the OT (school) cycle:

*Stress yourself out to the limit. Contemplate dropping out of school. Study until you go to bed. Consider joining Cirque du Solei (the circus for classy people).

*Take gigantic test(s). Complete assignments. Do some more assigments. Mail in scholarship applications.

*Turn in assignments. ... Contemplate starting new assignments, but realize you don't have enough information to do them yet. ... Twiddle thumbs ... WAIT FOR VACATION!

Unfortunately, these "lulls" always seem to happen right before vacations, so instead of days whizzing by with stuff left to do at the end of the day... I sit. And wait.

I know I shouldn't complain; and I'm not really... Someone has to keep in business. Last night I even painted my nails red. I haven't done that in a LONG time.

I just wish they could space everything out a little better! It would significantly help my sanity!

Until I'm drowning in school work again,

Sigh (of relief)

Anatomy tests are over! And I'm quite happy with the results!

There's a good chance I'll be doing things besides homework this weekend! Coffeehouse and ice cream tomorrow, hanging out with an out-of-town friend on Saturday, "Steel Magnolias" on Sunday, and perhaps I'll have my own private little Oscar party ... with myself... on Sunday evening!

I have my first camper registered for my summer program!

Tomorrow is pay day... money into the bank is always a good thing.

Don't tell my mom, but I think I might have a (very part time) PCA job!

Spring Break is two weeks away.... this, alone is HUGE motivation. I simply cannot wait!!!!!

Despite sky-high heating bills (ugh!) and a COLD couple of days (Back to wind chills and below zero), I think... maybe... possibly.... PERHAPS... Spring will someday come.
