Sings "cause im back in the saddle again..woooo" anyways...(that is a real song in case you just think I am being awkward lol) I am stressing a little...so this is kinda vent and kinda take advise. I started taking my remaining prereqs this term after almost 2 years of being out of school due to my situation. I work fulltime right now at a sometimes high stress job (the patient advocate at an inpatient behavioral health facility). I thought it would be smart to ease myself back in and take one class w/lab this term then next term push up to 2 classes. I have to get my mojo going again and keep my GPA high. (currently a 3.8). I have the chem and physics courses to take, bio is done. Well, apparently I am VERY rusty with school. Back in my old college days I did work, I ran an in home daycare, but it was at my home....and when I wasn't doing that I was a stay at home mom. I was able to focus a lot on my studies and that generated a good GPA for me. Now I am the breadwinner working fulltime, I take care of my house, I do have a husband/possible ex one day (as many of you know that situation) but all he does is work part time then sleep all day. (sighs) I wake up at 530 (well, more like 6 after I stop hitting snooze) and I am going all day. I am only taking one freaking class lol, but I am not doing as well as I had hoped or as I normally do. I am currently averaging a B. Non premeds might say ohhh that is good, but all of you know that we have to push for A's like it is our oxygen. Its the math that is getting me, ideas in math that I have not visited in years and I am making stupid mistakes. I am stressing.....been getting headaches, I have a pimple hehehe, sleep isn't wonderful. It is really bothering me that I am averaging a B and I only have one flipping class. It isn't even organic chem yet! This is not how I perform :-( I will admit this is not my only stress so everything is just building right now on me. I have this plus my situation with husband (may divorce one day although now he says no to that but I don't know what Im going to do, I may very well still divorce him), my job just got a little more loaded with work as I was added to two committees (patient safety council and service excellence committee) and my boss has decided to add on a few more duties to my normal daily rounds on the units. My house is stressing me because it is currently cluttered as can be lol, I am trying to keep up with it and do everything, but I make family time a priority such as tonight we are doing an outdoor movie when I would normally study or clean up. So my priorities rank "kid time" above clean time, but the house stresses me when it is like this. Don't say the husband should help more, I am very aware of his lack of pulling weight. I started thinking okay....how can I fix this? I am NOT a morning person, but my idea is to wake up at 0500 and only hit the snooze button once so 0510 lol. Get myself and my child ready, then set her up with cartoons and take a hour before I leave for work to just study. That may mean doing math concepts until I remember every detail of them or going over notes etc. I am also thinking of devoting 30-60 minutes of my work day to school. Any other ideas?
