There is a certain level of anxiousness that comes with schoolwork.  I have the worst kind right now, the "after submitting an assignment" anxiety.  After spending a week writing, editing, re-writing, editing, proof-reading, re-writing, sacrificing a chicken for good luck, and finally submitting an essay, I am now on the anxious high of awaiting my marks.  Which I should have sometime next week.  So until then, I must press on, reading the assigned novel and writing another essay for a different course.  It was pleasant to wake up to receiving my marks from a previous assignment, which was higher than I had expected, so I can only hope that the one I had just toiled over will receive a similar, or preferably higher, mark.
     There has been little time for anything else in my days.  If I'm not obsessing over schoolwork, then I'm working on my house chores, which I try to not let pile up and overwhelm me.  Much to my dog's dismay, I haven't been able to give them as much attention as they would've liked, but it allows them to sleep the hot days away, lounging in the sun for hours at a time.  Luckily, my husband, while encouraging my hard work, provides much needed relief when I start to go overboard.  However, considering my courses only started 3 weeks ago, I am planning on finishing both in August and beginning my next 2 courses....poetry and psychology.  I couldn't have arranged a stranger combination had I tried.
    Well time to put this energy to use, I have a lawn to cut and a house to vacuum.  Have a great weekend, everyone.
