School Mojo

Whew. Not sure why, but I’ve been stressing about school this quarter. I think it might be just getting used to three new professors and being unsure about their expectations. I was feeling like I’d maybe bitten off more than I could handle, but I feel better now. I turned in my first three-essay paper to my literature class, and I got it back with a 4.0. *huuuuge sigh of relief*

It may sound silly to some of you that I’m stressing about this -but for me school is still the great unknown, and I have my dark thoughts and my demons that like to poke me in the middle of the night and keep me awake. “What if summer was a fluke, and I can’t cut it?” was on repeat in my mind, no matter how much I told it to shove off. I won’t give voice to the rest of the committee that lives in my head, but you know what I’m talking about.

So. Onward now. Two more papers to write this week, and one test.

  1. Your head committee is friends with mine! A little stressing is okay, but don’t overdo it. You’ll be able to compete with those college kids, trust me. Your professors/adjuncts/TAs may just cry secret tears of joy when they read your correctly spelled and punctuated, coherent papers. Even if you don’t have a 4.0 GPA, you’re going to pass all of them. Don’t overindulge the stressing.

  2. I’m still expecting that it’ll be easier (in many ways) this semester than Summer was. Hopefully your confidence will show up soon and you’ll plow right through it all. You’re certainly capable.

  3. p.s. I just send you a friend request on FB. (Since I don’t have a blog, I figured you could get to know one of you biggest “fans” through FB.)
