Ay yi yi...

All the optimism from yesterday has gone down the tubes. Everything was fine until about 8:30 last night when I was bombarded with 50 things to do at once, all due very, very soon, and realizing that my classes are screwed up and if I don't take certain ones right now, I won't graduate on time.

AHHHHH!!!!

So after a major meltdown where I bawled on the phone to my mom and made panicked calls to my reporting teacher to no avail, I knew I had to make a decision and I had to make it right then.

I scrambled to find the classes I need and luckily got in. Barely. Then I called my professor one more time and left a very depressed message as well as sent her an equally depressed e-mail.

I had to drop the advanced reporting class. Yeah. The one I was super excited for and would give me all kinds of experience and look great on my resume. Yeah. That one.

The problem is, I can't do it all. And I resolved to make more time for me and stop stressing all the time. I need to take these other classes in order to graduate, whereas I don't need the reporting one. So my choice was made, however heartbreaking it was. The worst part is that I let my teacher (who is also a big role model to me) and the rest of my peers down and I hate to disappoint people.

So I'm trying to cope with all of these changes at once, and most of you know that I don't handle too much change at once very well. Luckily, I have amazing people in my life that are doing everything they can to cheer me up, so thank you.

This too shall pass.

Ali,
I know you are dissapointed. If you will seek the Lord, many times when one door closes another opens. Sometimes a door simply closes and we have to trust God is in control. You are right though, you cannot do it all. If you can understand that now it will save you and your future family one day alot of frustration!!

Love Mrs. Tracy
