With the time change come other changes. My last semester at LSU was rough – fortunately my friends and family in Iowa and Austria gave me a soft place to land. I thought my month off in snowy climes was just what I needed to wipe the slate clean. Little did I know how demanding two full-time jobs would be. I arrived back in the States on January 10 and started at H&R Block on January 11. I did not have a day off for two weeks, during which I also started teaching at BRCC (two classes turned into three). I’ve been on the go, go, go ever since!
My to-do list has increased exponentially. I have three midterms to write and administer this week. There are two conferences I must prepare papers for (beginning of April and end of May). And I should find a job to pay the rent after the end of tax season/the semester. In order to accomplish everything, I have given up Facebook for Lent and am resolved to start living like a responsible adult.
