Time to Take a Break

Okay, remember how I told you guys that things are crazy for me right now with school, work, activities, etc.? Yeah, the crazy train has hit it's peak. Here's what I have going on from now until the end of April:

Lady Gaga Concert
One exam for my Criminal Law class
Two tennis lessons
Five page research essay for my English class (the topic, you ask? Oh, something sexual abuse among women in Native American society.)
A project for my Criminal Law class (again, a light, breezy topic....write a three page paper analyzing the case against cop killer Jaime Hood and write up a five count indictment against him)
Two final exams: one for Criminal Law and another for my Technology in a Law Office class
4 day trip to Savannah, GA
4 day trip to Charleston, SC
And a partridge in a pear tree....

Oh, and the promotion I got at work (with no extra pay, btw) is taking up a lot of my time. I'm loving my new responsibilities, but, holy shit, can a sister get a break around here?!?

I have an obsession with grades. I have to get As. I must have a 4.0 GPA. Since my miscarriage I have developed an obsession with being perfect and a complete aversion to even the slightest failure.

It's bad.

Earlier in the semester I received an 85 on an essay for my English class. It was almost the end of the world:

"It's half way between doing good and failing!" I moaned.

"But my husband said it was an A paper!" I cried.

Yes, I recognize how annoying that is.

But I followed that essay up with a 97 on the next and a 99 on the one after it.

In YOUR FACE Professor! Give me an 85?!? HA! I'll show you!

And if it wasn't for one wayward semi-colon that 99 would have been a 100.




This post isn't about that.

It's about this, I need a break. I have to make it through this month somehow, some way, and as much as I hate it I'm not gonna be able to keep up with blogging along with everything else.

My reader has a gazillion unread posts and my Tweet Deck maxed out at a trillion.

I adore the social media world but right now it's over-whelming me.

I love blogging and tweeting so much that it's important to me it stays fun and doesn't become an obligation.

So, I'm taking a deep breath and stepping away for a few weeks.

I'll be back the beginning of May and I'll be blogging, commenting, and tweeting up a storm, I promise.

Please stick with me.

When I return I'm gonna dive back into moving and changing up my blog, so soon everyone will have a cool new place to visit and watch me spew the "F" bomb.

I promise.

Now, I gotta go make those As.
