I’ve been away for a bit, but today I’ve decided to change that. Here’s what’s been going on…
Remember the crown falling out? I was all set to get it fixed, then I had to pay for an emergency car repair. Oops. Still not fixed, but the pain has become minimal. Nice…
On the 26th of August I started an upper level Calculus class. Now, this is after a 7 (Monday) or 9 (Wednesday) hour workday. Yeah. That’s not working out. I was assigned over 110 homework problems last Wednesday. Guess how many of those got done? For those with inquiring minds – I haven’t even finished twenty.
And it’s played hell with my sleep and my creativity. I haven’t been able to write a thing. Even my dreams are about equations that I’m trying to figure out how to solve.
This is in addition to picking up a major project for a new accounting client, who wants 9 months work of work, plus setting up a brand-new QuickBooks manufacturing company, with customized reports and detailed personalized manual. Basically, he wants anyone who sits in front of his computer to be able to carry the work forward with step by step instructions. Can you imagine someone who owns a company never balancing the checkbook? Wow…
And he wants all of this done in 8 hours, because that’s all he can afford to pay for.
I’m not complaining, really I’m not. I’m just detailing what’s been going on, and looking over this post, I can see that something’s gotta give. I haven’t even been able to pay attention to trying to eat healthier. I’ve been having to get crap on the run, and everyone knows how THAT affects your functionality.
I guess Calculus is going to have to go. I’m not sacrificing my writing. If I was on my deathbed today, what would I regret not doing most – Calculus or writing. Hands down, without question, writing.
Bye-bye Calculus. By Sunday, I should have something creative to mention.
See you on Sunday! Guaranteed.
