I am half way through my class now. It has been super easy. Let’s hope the rest of them are this easy. I definitely could have take two classes. It’s better to start slow, though, rather than start and end up overwhelmed. I am going to be half way through the program by the end of the summer. I am not leaving my current job to be in a classroom somewhere else. The only way I am leaving where I am is to step up. I will watch the web site for all admin and pseudo-admin jobs this summer and apply for all of them. I really will have to hit it hard next year. I can seriously up my retirement by doing that job for 3 years. If I like it, I will do it forever. I would like to get my doctorate instead of just this stupid Ed.S, but I don’t think I can without starting again with another program.
Just Keep Swimming
I am a 47 year old adult child of an alcoholic. My childhood could have been a Lifetime movie. I am dealing with PTSD, anxiety, and severe depression as a result. I am working on gaining an understanding as to what this means and learning how to be okay with myself. Some days, just killing myself and being done with it seems like the most sensible option. On those days, I keep telling myself, "just keep breathing in and out, that's enough for today."
