I Gave Up

... but hopefully, not give in. Rather, i'd just blaze through another path.

Respond to Change

"It is not the strongest of species that survives, not the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change" (Charles Darwin)

I am close to giving up and just dropping out of school because of poor time management. My son is really leaving me exhausted and preoccupied during the day that I cannot study at night anymore, and I am feeling sh!tty about my output. It's not that am being grade-conscious, but it sucks knowing you're not putting your best foot forward in your submissions.

And I have yet to make some headway with my book reports.

But maybe i'll still survive. It might mean settling for the lowest passing grade because all my requirements will be passed late and I won't exactly ace my exams... but surely that's still better than just quitting?

School: Urgent and Important

I's September already and I have yet to make some headway in my book reports and term paper, due on September 20.

What's more, I have seriously missed a lot of assignments and discussions. I am still struggling with time management. And I get confused if i'm just using my son as an excuse, or it's really important that I attend to him, play with him, get involved in whatever he does during the day.

Schoolwork is both urgent (because I left it late) and important right now. I have to meet my deadlines, not just for the sake of meeting them, but because it's important that I maximize my resources. I dipped into the one-income family fund for this semester's tuition. I cannot afford to waste the money!

And I am starting this masterals at 30, a little late by some people's standards. So I shouldn't be wasting time either.
