Okay, this post should have been titled “Shit Got Real.”
School begins a week from today. Nevertheless, both of my professors opened their classrooms today. This came as a surprise since it is a holiday, but I can’t complain. I tend to procrastinate. Knowing what lays ahead might keep me in line this time around. Also, my sister-in-law is coming from Chicago to meet K2 and reconnect with Paczki. The best time to travel for her is next week. The trip has been in the works for a while. It will be great for the K Kids to be around their Midwest side of the family.
What I did not anticipate was school starting the same week.
To say I am scared about the two events happening at the same time underestimates what is going through my head. My body is tense. Did I mention we are taking a trip to San Francisco and then one to Hollywood? No…okay, now you know!
Oh yeah, I take my driver’s test (again) a week from today too. To top it all off, Packzi’s new school is having a mandatory meeting the day my sister-in-law comes to town.
A trip to Alcatraz, whale watching, a baseball game, and Disney are on the agenda.
Everything piled up.
I am not complaining. This will be great because I get to tackle a lot of my fears head on: the driving on the freeway, sea sickness, school, getting to know FullEclipse’s family, and not gaining weight that week.
I want to succeed at everything, but I am afraid that I will end up in a corner with a panic attack.
I guess the thing to do will be to tackle one thing at a time. First, school.
Reading the syllabus made it real. No more dreaming. Two classes in ten weeks!
One step at a time.
