Sounds like an awesome title for the first day of school. I mean it IS the first time I am able to go back to school full-time since I was in high school!
Before today I was taking one or two classes at a time and barely making it. I always had other emergencies that seemed to take over my whole life at the same moment of a test, huge paper or right at the end of my classes. Here's to slowing down a bit, and learning how to handle both life and school.
I am currently signed up for 5 classes. I obviously didn't think ahead and wonder if I SHOULD be doing 5 classes. I think it's a little overboard since I have only been taking 2 for a long time, but I thought "I can do anything", "I can be the best", and “I am awesome!" If anyone knows me or if I actually pay attention to myself, you and I both know I look at things half full and think I can do it all.
Then here comes the failure part. I start out great, but realize I committed too much, didn't start small enough or just feel ill-prepared and fail. I don't like failing EVER, so I am unsure as to why I set myself up to fail so much. Maybe the excitement and adrenaline drowns out the thought of failure. Maybe my competitive side roars and ignores all the signs of failure until they happen. I am not sure, but I better figure it out before I waste my money on five classes and somewhere down the line I withdraw and end up heartbroken and minus tuition.
Anyone else set themselves up for failure? Anyone who succeeds at everything and wants to give tips? Anyone in between and know how to handle both?
