Since September I have been going constantly. Monday thru Thursday I have 12 to 14 hour days and that’s not counting the time spent on doing homework and searching for jobs for the New Year.
I’m going to be honest, I’ve come close to breaking down and losing it a few times. My internship is 15 hours a week. I work my job 20 hours a week. I go to class 10 hours a week. While running club meetings at Berklee, I am currently getting things together for the submission process for the show that we put on. If you’re doing the math, that’s a lot of hours and not a whole lot of free time. Oh free time, I miss you.
Anyway, I know that so many people are in the exact same boat as me. We’re humans and we aim to please. Mostly we are all trying to please ourselves, and we are all our worst critics. This semester has forced me to come to a conclusion. I realized that if I don’t take a few moments every day for me, I will go crazy. I won’t put my fullest effort into my work because I’ll be so tired and frustrated that I won’t know what to do with myself.
