School is becoming difficult to balance with the rest of my life. I have four classes and although one of them is laid back (until the end when I have to write essays for it), the other three are hard. And of the hard three, two are time-consuming, and the other is time-consuming and difficult.
To be honest I can handle hard exams and detailed material. I really enjoy learning. What gets me is the time. It’s difficult to have class two days a week, work the other five, go to my therapist weekly, have my one leisure activity (DnD about every Friday), deal with a constant stream of studying and homework, and do all my own meals and cleaning. Like I am totally fine with the act of doing all those things and I actually have fun doing them for the most part, it’s just that there are never enough hours in the day and I’m frequently rushing.
I do cut into my sleep hours at times, but I can’t do that often because my mental and physical health take a huge hit from just two nights a week with less than 6 or 7 hours of sleep.
Meals can also sometimes be annoying because I’m lactose-intolerant and I can’t eat a ton of meat and bread without getting digestive issues. Like I need plenty of fruit, veggies, and water or else my body just freaks out at me and I could spend a day or two with abdominal pain among other fun things. Also too much sugar can give me headaches and a racing heart. Good thing I live in the US where all the food doesn’t have these things I gotta avoid in order to not be in pain ~sarcasm~
Ehhh sooo I wanted to vent. I’ve been doing okay so far this school semester despite some obstacles, and it has not gotten so bad that I have zero free time. Time can just be difficult to deal with since I can’t skimp on decent sleep and specific food or else my body breaks down really fast, and ignoring what I need mentally and physically is simply not sustainable.
