Okay, what now?

WOW! Tomorrow is Friday the 13th--not that I'm superstitious about that--I just can't believe this new year is already two weeks old!

Professional life:
Winter quarter is in full swing--first quiz that counted was today, fist major assignment is due on Wednesday, and the ball just keeps rolling and picking up speed from there. And oh, lest I forget, I have to have a lesson plan written for every lesson I teach. I've taught two so far: one an unqualified success; the other, a successful disaster! (It didn't quite go the way I had planned, but I was able to make the necessary adjustments and get the point across, and the kids eventually did get it. The ability to adapt the lesson is what turned from a plain old disaster to a successful one!)

Family life:
I'm still on everyone's black list, which actually wouldn't be so bad if they'd just let me be. But no, they insist I be a part of the family, and then shun me when I try to do just that. Does anyone else find something very odd about that?

Love life:
What's that? I don't want to grow cynical and say I'm giving up on it, because I did that once before. Let me just say the results were well....... less than satisfactory. I want a special person in my life, but with school and family issues, maybe this just isn't the season for that. Just the thought is enough to depress me, and I don't want to go down that road.

Future outlook:
Finishing the program in May--if I don't work myself to death in the process. I'll be free to look for work anywhere I want. And I'll answer only to myself--that's sounding REALLY good! So I think my future's so bright I gotta wear shades! Hope yours is too!

Obviously working toward your professional goals is the primary focus of your life at this point in time. Perhaps when you relax or achieve those goals, then the other desires of your life will be able to bear fruit?
