Learning To Say No

Good. Gawd. I so need to learn how to do that. (g)

I have three books I need to have read by next Tuesday, and I've only finished one so far. These were VOLUNTARY books, btw. LOL. I seriously need to learn when enough is enough. On top of that, I still have at least 10 first pages to comment on over at the forum. I'm going slightly nuts right now.

On top of all that, I have to finish my professor's book for class, and read CRIME AND PUNISHMENT for the thirty page paper I need to write for that same prof. *bangs head on wall*

Oh yeah, and yanno...write. HEH.

Please send all chocolate, sugar, and virtual caffeine my way. (g)

The last sentence of this post pretty much serves as (close to) a six-word memoir. LOL!

Hang in there and don't hurt yourself! :)

Here is some NOcolate and some NOffee. *smiles*

And please go easy on yourself. I think it's enough that you're hosting the 'Firsts' exercise. I don't think anyone should expect you to comment on each entry.

You're doing a great job, btw!

Thank you.

Precie,

Right now, stringing a 6 word memoir together seems like an insurmountable task. (g) I may just shorten that and call it good. It does sum up my life right now. :)

Helene,

Thanks! I doubt I'll be shooting for every post in the next phase...but I'm a finish what I start kinda gal. (g)

Thanks for the goodies!

Is there anything in that list you can let slide? I remember feeling exactly like that, and then deciding that it truly wouldn't kill anyone if my lit review for my thesis wasn't done by the deadline. The relief from letting go just that one thing was tremendous, and made all other tasks possible.

Susan,

Definitely something to think about. :) The books I'm reviewing, I'm sort of obligated to do. I signed up, they sent me a free book...yeah, I have to do them. But you can bet I won't be signing up for anymore. (g)

Hopefully I'll get over the hump of this week and then things will calm down a little. Come on spring break! (g)
