Here is a quick update on my last post.

Here is why I am a basket case.
In 6 days my first assessment for second year is due. It is a book review, and while I am finished the book I will be reviewing I feel like I could read books from now until the end of time and still not totally understand the issue involved.
But 6 days is plenty of time to write 2000 words, right?? Except that on Saturday I have a wedding to go to – actually to be a part of, While I am delighted to be involved in the wedding it does mean that suddenly my 6 days is down to 5 (not including tonight because we have the rehearsal).
Sunday I am at church most of the day so now 5 days goes down to 4. Also I realize that in the next 2 days I need to prepare for Sunday school as well as my first ever kids talk in church.
Suddenly I am feeling panicked.
So what am I doing now?? Well after sitting in traffic for 2 hours to get to Penrith for the rehearsal I am filling in the ½ hour until we start but having a well earned coffee and realizing that sitting in a café with your macbook is not so common here as it is in Newtown.
Now that I think about it, this is not the only reason that I am a basket case but it is certainly the most predominate at the minute.
Good stress relief
My favourite things to do to relieve exam/study stress –
1. Go for a walk with a good friend to UB’s for coffee – surprisingly this is less about the coffee and more about the walk and company
2. Watching something good on tv – at the moment the viewing of choice is The West Wing
3. Have a nice hot bubble bath – due to the lack of a bath this is yet to happen but I’m looking forward to enjoying the bath at my folks place on the weekend
Any other suggestions???
