current mood: stressed
Don't push me cause i'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose my head
Sometime I sit alone
And look deep into my soul
And I’m starin’ down at something
That's very out of control
~ “The Stress Factor” by Andre Nickatina
I am a person who generally thrives on stress. I enjoy being pushed to the limit. It serves as encouragement and motivation. Unfortunately, the line between “the edge” and “falling into oblivion” is growing thinner by the day. I am by no means a martyr and I certainly have an easier life than many people I know. Still, I do work 2 jobs, volunteer, and am applying to law School. If anyone had truly wanted to know what I wanted for my birthday – it would have been “someone to clean my room and organize my stuff” or “someone to help me move all my belongings from one storage unit to my new storage unit”. My work week is filled with “WORK” and my weekends are spent trying to catch up on sleep that I didn’t get during the week. I even had to hire maids to come in and clean the “common” rooms in the house because I just didn’t have time to do it.
On my birthday, I spent time with NBF, which was nice. I dragged him to The Loft (Ann Taylor) so that I could look at clearance items. I bought a cute short-sleeve cardigan for 10 bucks. I have worn it three times this week. Today, I finally noticed the “M” sticker that was stuck to it, indicating ‘medium’. Nice! Who doesn’t love walking around with tags still stuck to my clothes??
I have actually accomplished some things this week, however, besides work. I have formally requested all of my transcripts for my law School applications, as well as my LORs. I still need to write my Personal Letter and begin studying to re-take the LSAT in December. There is no way I have the ‘bandwidth’ to attempt the September LSAT. Thankfully, NBF is going to help me study – which is a huge plus!
This weekend I intend on mailing ‘new baby’ presents to the Merlos and the Dalys, as well as wrap the baby present I bought for the Duartes. I also am moving all of my belongings from one storage unit to another – which includes towing a UHAUL trailer. I have no idea how to tow a trailer – so this should be an interesting event. Anyone want to help me? I just sent a text request to 8 people. I hope one of you say ‘YES’.
On a separate topic, my tummy aches. I hate it when my stomach hurts. Yuckers!
