Travel Log 8-9: Wow Is My Plate Full

   You know when you go to a buffet and you keep putting a little of this and a little of that and by the time you're done you've got a heaping plate full? Well that's me for the next few months.
   I've been trying to get my butt motivated to write (since mom passed I have had a hard time picking up anything creative) and decided to do the NANOWRIMO summer camp dealio that they have been doing. Yay me for getting on the finish a full novel band wagon.
    Then I decided that I wasn't going to let my funk keep me from starting college next fall so I went and talked to an admissions councilor for the school I want to go to and found  out that I should have no problems applying and getting accepted as long as I take 2 more general ed classes at my community college. Great, 2 classes no sweat. Except one of them is a math class that I need to have another math class prerequ'ed that I haven't completed yet. And the semester has already started and there is no way for me to get the pre requisite class this late. So now I have to find a way to test into a higher math class than I have ever taken before and math hates me. No seriously, it hates me. So now I have to set up testing and cram 2 years worth of evil Algebra into a couple weeks or it sets me back a whole year on admission.
    Oh and did I mention that I still have 4 kids, 2 of which just started a their school year at a new school, 2 blogs, and a periodical submission to do.
    Yeah I would have to say that my eyes were much bigger than my stomach here, lol. But I can't see what I would choose not to do so it looks like I'll be running around like a madwoman for a few months.


  1. "Periodical submission", what periodical submission? What have you been keeping from me Witch? Well, I hope the gods that feed your energy have a little bit left to feed mine too; I'm trying to finish another novel (the first is um, not great and I know it), I'm also working on an Etsy shop (fingers crossed) and if the gods are good, and they can be when they feel like it, I should have two short stories published before the end of the year. Let the busy come baby!

  2. Math is my own evil nemesis, so I feel your pain! Good luck getting that conquered! Sometimes busy is just what we need to keep going. Just remember to breathe once in a while, okay?? Hugs.

  3. LOL, and I thought I was busy! My goodness! Plus anything math related always counts triple on any list. :) Remember to find ways to rejuvenate yourself every now and then. Busy is good sometimes, burnt out is bad. :) *Hugs*

  4. Big hugs! Somehow, I think you'll find a way to make it all work. Math and I stopped being friends awhile ago.. it took time, but we're working on the relationship again ;)
