(something that hasn’t changed since…oh probably since I was 10, I’d always been involved in tonnes of extra-curriculars) I don’t really stress anymore. Maybe because I’m not working at all right now? But now that I think about it, in Grade 12 I was working 21 hours a week and by the end I think I was doing okay.
Right now I feel pretty balanced probably because I’m not working, but I could probably take on 10 hours a week (I think I might around November). I live with my boyfriend so I don’t have to work time in to see him, and I have a standing date with my mom which works really well because I join her and her craft group on Thursdays and bring homework to sit with them after lunch. I’m getting all my work done because I’m really planning out my time and what to do, but not stressing if I don’t get it done because I’ve started way ahead of time.
It’s just a really nice feeling to finally not freak out about my life anymore. I freak out about stupid things at home, like how much I hate how the bed creaks everytime I turn over, and how the sink is always full of dishes but not about how much I have to do and how I have no time for myself. :)
