A quick hello!

Thanks for all your support as I head back to school! It's greatly appreciated. I'm struggling a bit with the time management aspect of things, and have to keep reminding myself that the big 3-hour block between some of my classes isn't "free" time, it's time I need to read, do assignments, etc. This first full week hasn't been so bad, but starting next week it's going to be full on and I need to get my head around the fact that I can't just turn it off at the end of the day, there's going to be LOTS of homework and I need to be organized so I can get it all done.

EEEEK!

I am NOT complaining. I am so happy to be learning - even if some of it, at this point, is stuff I already know. I have little chats with myself to remind me to just breathe...focus and listen...I've worked so hard to be here - am SO EXCITED (!!!) to be here - I can't mess up the experience by getting impatient and losing interest in the first few days. I just have to switch my brain from work mode to school mode. Once routines are established it will become easier. It's a bit clunky right now as I figure out the best place to leave all my textbooks, notebooks, tea mug, what I need for class, etc.

I promise I will write a much longer and more detailed post this weekend, but I just wanted to post to say "THANK YOU!"

You're right. It will take some time to get into the zone.

I think I walked into my first day of class one semester without paper, just a pen! Then the next day, I walked in with paper... but no pen!

Hang in there!

You're welcome!! I completely understand! I've gone from putting my feet up all day long to BEING on my feet all day long. Last week was an 80 hour week and by 9pm I'm sawing logs! But once I get into the rhythm of things it'll get better...I hope!
