I'm Burnt Out

For those of you who know me, you know I love school and I love learning.  I have always said I would be a forever student if someone would pay for it.  But right now?  I WANT OUT! I have been going nonstop since August and I just want to be done!

I am literally counting down the days until I have a break (last two weeks of August) and until I get to go see my best friend (10 days!) and until I graduate (approx 280 days).  None of these dates can come soon enough.  I hate school right now and I just want to quit!

Every week I have 4-5 papers due ranging in length of 2 pages to 10 pages.  I have more reading than I have ever seen before to do.  I am working on classes I HATE with a passion.  And I do not want to do any of it ever.  It is like pulling teeth over here to get me to do my assignments.

One of my goals this year was to work on my procrastination and I have say I have failed majorly at this recently.  I put everything off till the last minute and then stress because I have so much to do.  This is not a good cycle I am in right now.

Oh and lets add onto that the 15 hours or so I am doing as an intern.  And the nanny job I have (which I love and I am SO ready to quit school and just become a nanny).  And I have been working at the gym at least once a week in the kids club.  So yeah I have a lot on my plate right now.

I am burnt out.  I knew this could happen but I prayed it wouldn't.  I didn't want to be that student who pushed too hard and then fell apart.  And I am not there....yet.  So prayers that I can keep it up till the end of the month will be greatly appreciated.  I am loving what I am doing and I know I can do this.

Oh, I'm so sorry you're feeling this way. I can't imagine dealing with all of that, not sure I could make it! Like you said, 1 year left, you totally got this. It'll be worth it. I'll pray for some extra strength for you too!

My husband could be a lifetime student! He loves it but he does go through those burnout times too! Those aren't fun because them he starts these little projects that seem to number in the thousands and are NEVER done! Lol!

It happens to us all. Just take a weekend or a few days and just disconnect from everything.
