Everything just got stressful

02.23.2011

I need to vent. There are a ton of things going on right now that are pretty much out of my control, but that I need to deal with. First off, there’s normal school. Obviously I have homework and projects. In addition to this, I have midterms coming up- 2 of them this coming up Tuesday. I have a major painting project due Monday, as well as several drawing assignments. Though this may not sound terrible, I’m going to be on retreat this weekend, thus my Friday and Saturday are basically gone.

I’ve been making an honest attempt to study ahead of time, while still trying to do a good job on my assignments. That’s difficult in and of itself. But now, there’s another situation that’s stressing many people out: housing. As I mentioned in a previous blog, I applied to live on a substance free floor in Campus South next year with 5 other girls, since the rooms house 6 people. A bunch of my other friends applied as groups of 6 as well. But it turns out that virtually none of my other friends made it onto the floor. (It’s pretty complicated, and I don’t have time to get into the whole situation.) But now, we may end up having to rearrange rooms and live elsewhere if we want to all live together.

So, everyone’s meeting tonight to try and figure it out. Because we need to let the housing officers know what we want to do as soon as possible. The plan is to get it all figured out tonight, which I’m sure will take a very very long time. But I’m prepared to stay as long as I have to in order to get everything under control. Hopefully by tomorrow morning, everything will be resolved. And that way, I can enjoy my retreat so much more.

Crossing my fingers on this one.
