Personal Reflection

School, Stress, And Stories

I’m a little stressed about school and life in general. Make that a lot. But when I look back on February, I’m proud of myself. Somehow, I survived. I even read and wrote every day during a short but insane month.

Recently, I’ve felt at peace while reading stories. Thank goodness books exist.

Because some days didn’t work out exactly the way I envisioned, I haven’t been as productive as I planned to be. Which explains why there’s a lot I need to do in March.

I bite off more than I can chew. Even though I don’t have to, I load my plate full.

Yes, I realize I have high expectations and a crazy imagination. Sometimes they work in tandem. Other times, I feel like my world is falling apart.

I’m doing my best. I know I say that all the time. I’m still a broken record. No surprise there.

Unfortunately, I feel like my best isn’t good enough, like I’ll never be enough.

But if I can get through this, I can get through anything.

Even though telling my story isn’t easy, I intend to stay strong. More than anything, I’d like to live on my own terms going forward.

  1. Usually February drags for me. I can never figure out why the month that has the fewest days takes the longest to get done…maybe it has something to do with dreary weather? This February has been terrible weather: lots and lots of rain, but is has also been chock full of events, visits, and good things. I hated to see it end! March roared in like a lion, and I am hoping for a little warmer weather to start Spring Break officially this weekend. My students have a paper to write over Spring Break–I know, I know, but they VOTED to turn it in when they got back on March 21st rather than before leaving on March 7th–their choice! I would have loved to grade those papers over the break while My Better Half was tied up with taxes. Sigh ……


    1. I know what you mean. The winter weather is the worst. Haha. I’m looking forward to spring as well. Oh no. Hopefully, you have some great papers to grade then. Ugh taxes. Wishing you all the best in March!

  2. You can do it! I know what you mean. I fill my plate up pretty full as well. Just prioritize and take it one step at a time. As long as you get something done during the day, that’s an accomplishment.
