Day one found us having panic attacks.
By the end of the week we were better...mostly.
Ten years ago when we attended university for the first time it felt much less...overwhelming...from what I can recall.
In any case, having compiled all of our homework for this semester into a handy little document, we realize...we're fucked.
There's so much of it. With work, and a relationship, housework, and time to decompress (which we need, to stay relatively sane), and the commute...
It's tempting to play with the idea of being on medication again, just to take the edge off.
Last time we attempted this (University) we
a) were not working, other than work-study (which mostly involved studying)
b) were on prescription meds
c) tended towards marijuana, which helped us focus (yes, focus. We were an A student) - and didn't ever touch alcohol.
In any case...we're saving most of the opinions on our experience of our first week for a future blog post...tonight...tonight we're tempting fate.
We have a lot of writing to do for University, some we want to share with people who read this blog...however, the risk is that an instructor does a content search of something we write after it's already been handed in and graded, and lands here...
Needless to say we have had no luck with employers finding this blog and continuing to employ us; so hopefully all will go well.
This week, when asked to write about what optimistic predictions of the internet I think proves inaccurate, and what optimistic predictions may be realized...this was the response:
It's not the best writing, but hey, it's been awhile since we've posted anything good to this blog...
Our first week of classes...under the belt. Only fifteen more to go...
