Back to School and Back to My Usual Reality

As an effort to keep my "writing hand" flowing I am attempting to keep posting more frequently, despite the fact that as of today I am a full time student and a full time employee for the first time in my life. To attempt to obtain senior status, I am taking several courses this term. One of them is not fully online, which all of mine have been for a few years now. I will need to attend campus for one week for this class and the rest is done online. Took a look at the syllabuses for my classes and nearly screamed. I hope I can handle the added work and pressure. I figured out that I will need to spend a lot of time studying which is normal, but more so than usual.

Moments like today's are the times that I wish I was still single; I wonder how on earth I am going to have any time for my husband. I also wonder how I am going to celebrate my birthday, go to a bachelorette party, be in a wedding as a bridesmaid, attend another wedding, and many other things that are coming up in my life. I feel overwhelmed by my life now and hope I can push through these courses without wrecking my GPA, well being, or finances. Ironically one of my courses is on finance. I have drawn up an intense schedule so that I can still get some sleep, study enough for classes, and take care of my house and myself.

Stay tuned, I will do my best to keep posting every few days. I also aim to not let my perfectionism give me writer's block. Often I write pieces and can't get them to my high standards, so I delete them. I would have at least twice as many posts by now if I had never done that. I hope all is well with my readers and if there are any topics of modern life that you are interested in, then please comment or send me your topic ideas for future posts.

I can be reached here as well as via email at, on the Facebook page, or on twitter as punkedpoetess. Thank you all for reading and for following this blog.

I can definitely sympathize with a lot of this. I've also been trying to force myself to write something...anything to post and hopefully the quality will improve.

I hope things are managable for you and that at the end of it all you're left with a massive sense of satisfaction.
