Am I Insane? (Ok, be gentle, please)
Sorry...my newest college term just started. I'm taking four classes this time -- two senior level history class and two junior level political science classes. Oy! Just keeping up with the discussion boards in each class is like have a four-way conference call. And all because I want to graduate by March. I'll have little time for knitting...

Oh, and my sweet little Molly (new puppy, remember?) needs CONSTANT attention...she's a doll but so totally mischievous and lets loose with the pee when she gets excited.

Just feeling overwhelmed, as usual at the beginning of each term.

Thanks for letting me vent. :violin:


I you guys!

You're not insane! You can do it! I've been there.

And, quite honestly, better to be taking history and poli sci (I majored in poli sci) than math and science, or astronomy, heaven forbid.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Yes, you're quite insane. Realize it, accept it, and rejoice in it. It's only the troubled who refuse to accept their insanity.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

Thanks for the laugh, Mason. What is normal, anyhow?

Here's what I feel like right now...




I think I can, I think I can...

No, wait a minute...

By God's grace, I KNOW I can!

Oh yes...forgot to add that on top of all of this, I got hired on permanently (at least until I graduate and get a teaching position) at my summer job. I had been hired with the understanding that I would return to my IT job at my school. The firm offered me a permanent job, with the same part-time hours as my other job. PLUS, the school never called asking when I was starting back...something they've done the last three years. I think my position at the school was cut.

God provided...

But this job is very stressful (computer support positions are always that way).

Anyhoo...one day at a time...

It'll get better. After we got John Boy I was so overwhelmed. Plus I got him a week before starting a new full time job. But slowly it's getting better and it will for you too. Hang in there. Through all the pee and ripped up items it's worth it.

I had the same thoughts as Mason when I saw your post. We are all insane so accept and embrace it. I do.

Just pace yourself, and you'll be OK. Give yourself plenty of time to work on papers, and make sure you schedule yourself a night (or two) off of work and go knit, see a movie, go bowling, or whatever it is which energizes you. (It could be worse. You could be in grad school . )
