School Struggles & Bell Let’s Talk Day

I really hate to come on here and just whinge, but that is where life is for me right now. It's reality and I'm doing my best not to sugar coats things, when in reality things are covered in a huge dose of cheap, white, vinegar. Well it seems as though the weekends, at least one day, are not going to be a time to rest, recuperate and relax. I don't know how that's going to turn out in the long run. Class time is not enough time for me to absorb the knowledge. If I'm going to be able to spit it back out, without flipping through a text book, or checking the help menu, I need to practice. Which so far means, class time, evenings, early mornings, most of Saturday and Sunday.

I pray that things come to me a little quicker. If not, I don't know what is going to happen. The projects are just going to keep getting more and more complicated. I'm waiting to get it and enjoy what I'm learning, as told by many, including my teachers, but again I don't know. I'm trying to stay positive and remember that I'm not a dummy, but the positive self-talk isn't kicking in, quite yet. Some classes make sense, but by the time the next one rolls along or when I have an assignment, the new knowledge seems to seep out of my head. I'll be raising my hand so often, eyes will start to roll, but I have to do everything on my end, to make this successful.

You may be happy to hear that Monday was a bit better, although very fast paced, but I made it through. I've also started my morning yoga again, which I hope will help get the blood flowing and my mind right. I don't know why I always stop. Wish me luck, send prayers, anything, that I have the strength to make it through, successfully.

    Chin up Nadia. You're right - nothing stupid or dumb about a woman who goes back to school to improve herself. My experience with going back to school is the first weeks are designed to weed people out. Whether this is true or fair is a separate conversation, but its definitely what I saw. So find a study partner if you can and plow through it. We both know you can do it.
    I also want to thank you for drawing attention to the Bell "Let's talk" campaign. As someone who has recently been diagnosed with a mental illness, I'm grateful to see the number of people who actually are talking about it.

      Thank you for your words of encouragement Alison. They were needed, as I'm right in the middle (and taking a break from) a difficult assignment. As for the Let's talk campaign any awareness that I can bring, I'm glad to do.
