I just wrapped up 3 out of 4 of my classes for the semester. I received As in two of them, and on C. The C is actually a good thing! I was trying to be more laid back, because the class was ultimately not any new concepts for me and involved a lot of busy work. I have to complete one project for my sculpture class by May 15th, but honestly that is fun and relaxing work.
I now have just this summer term and Fall and then I will have my B.A. They are going to be FULL semesters, but I just have to keep reminding myself if I put in good work at the beginning of the semester, I can kind of fall apart a little at the end and still get passing grades.
I’m doing this with my husband. We’ve both been to some states that the other hasn’t, so I’m only counting the ones we have done with one another. And we decided not to count airports, which would have upped our number quite a bit.
So far, since 2010, we have been to:
Minnesota (we live there)
We are going to Pennsylvania this summer. My husband travels frequently to South Dakota, North Dakota, Indiana and Michigan for work, so I should have lots of opportunities this upcoming year to do at least one or two of those. Also he will have one trip to Washington and I plan on making sure to go with.
I am at the end of this semester. It feels like everything is crashing down on me. I took on way too many other responsibilities besides just school, with volunteer work and a work project. I feel like everything due is a big rock on my back right now, and there are so many they are crushing the life out of me. I’m so overwhelmed I’m actually blowing time by panicking and feeling overwhelmed.
But, the good news is—I looked at my interactive degree report, and assuming I at the very least PASS everything this semester (Unless I literally stopped turning things in I should be okay), I will be down to just 27 credits away from getting my bachelor’s degree. Maybe even less, I think up to 6 credits haven’t transferred over from other schools.
So, I just need to find a way going forward to drop everything that isn’t related to finishing my degree. I will have to do all sorts of things after this goal is completed.
I’m trying to remind myself to, my grades really don’t matter towards this goal. I’ve spent a lot of time being an A student, and this semester because I’ve juggled to much, I’m just scraping by in some classes.
It’s okay to scrape by, so long as I pass the finish line.
