It has been over two weeks since school started. I like this new experience but I found out that I need to learn to plan out my time to study so I can keep up with the demands of online classes while taking care of my family and household chores and still have time to myself to just sit down and think. The first week stressed me out mostly because I am not used to having a schedule to follow. I did not have to worry about not meeting deadlines or due dates for a very long time so the new schedule freaked me out a bit. I think I am starting to get over that and I am starting to like school again. The reading is what is killing me, I found out I dislike reading textbooks but I have to do it or fail. To be honest, I can spend all night reading paperbacks but let me read a textbook and I can hardly open my eyes on the third page. That bad! I have to remind myself that this is only temporary so I have to make it and be done with it. I am hoping that things will get better every day. The kids are getting used to mommy studying so they do not bother me much when they see me reading or taking tests on the computer. I am glad that I decided to do this because this is a step up for me. I just hope that I will finish in time so I can use this degree to find a good job in the future.
