Balancing Act

2 cats. 2 horses. 2 jobs. 12 credit hours this semester. Apartment still needing unpacked from moving.

Well life just got a bit more interesting. Yesterday I started a second part time job. Part time at a grocery store. It's as exciting as it sounds. However my options were a second job or sell a horse and that wasn't an option I wanted to face. Then Today marks the start of a new college semester for me. 

So how am I going to manage my life? Well I figure this is a great chance to improve my time management 'skills' which have barely exist.

My job at Equibase is on a set schedule so that helps. I have Sunday and Mondays off from there. Ill most likely be working these days at the new job. Ill still manage to get to the farm daily, I just may have to become a morning regular instead of evenings. There will be a few days a week that when i get off from Equibase I'll have to work the second job that night. Days I work only one job are days I'll be dedicating studying to and also using these days to do more serious things with the horses.

It's going to be a major challenge for me. If I'm still semi upright and not locked up in a padded cell by mid December, there will be a night of serious margarita or cosmopolitan consumption to be had.

  2. This doesn't sound like a fun semester. But always remember to find 5 minutes a day to do something relaxing.
