I love this photo. It’s so true. With my schedule, and overscheduling, my brain is always on the go. This week, the random music was the Gumby theme song. Last week, it was Yellow Rose of Texas. I swear I am going crazy, judging by the music.
I have had some strange dreams lately. I think my mind is on overload with all the changes that are going on. One of my dreams this week was about going to the laundromat. I got there, had all of my clothes and soap and such. I got everything loaded into the washer and found out that the machines no longer take quarters. They take slices of white bread only. Thankfully, 711 is next door, so I was able to go over and buy some bread, but wow, Brain. Where’d that come from?
I have anxiety issues over time. Schedules that get changed or not given to me make me anxious. I have full blown panic attacks sometimes.
Last week, only one of my online classes was opened on time. They were supposed to be released at 12:01am on the 19th. One wasn’t released until the afternoon of the 19th, but it was still within the time line that I couldn’t complain much.
One instructor emailed at 10am to tell us that we had a zoom meeting at 4 pm the same day. He didn’t release his class until almost 11:50pm on the 20th. Not only did I have to rearrange my schedule to accommodate the last minute announcement of the zoom meeting, but I couldn’t plan ahead by putting assignments on the calendar.
I am still not sure what made me think I can take three classes this semester. I will do it and I will excel, but I hope they stop messing with my schedule.
Because no one is leaving the house, no one seems to know what day it is anymore. I have been working my regular hours, but I don’t have my usual after work activities going on, so I have a hard time knowing from day to day. I thought it was weird, but it seems that almost everyone is going through the same thing.
With the holiday coming up this week, I think it’s going to be worse. I will have my Monday on Tuesday, and Friday will come after only 4 days of work. It’s going to be insane. As long as I go to work on the right day and stay home on the right day, I should be ok. What about everyone else?
Part of my New Year’s resolution was to post daily here. Because I finally figured out how to schedule posts, I have managed to do it for the entire month of January. I get the post written and scheduled and it’ll pop up, fully written, a few days later. I have posts scheduled for the next few weeks. Some days, I have two or three posting a day. At least I can keep part of my resolution, and the app makes it easy to do. I can ramble in advance.
