I am physically and mentally exhausted. I am getting about six hours of sleep a night and still not getting as much studying done as I need to. Between the gym, errands, laundry, and writing our group marketing plan on top of going to school, keeping up with my friends and working full time, I need a few more hours in the day. I don't know if it is the lack of sleep, homesickness or my hormones gone haywire, but my eyes got a little watery this morning as I put together a tour package.
It does, however, seem to be in the water around here. Shaum is completely overwhelmed with MBA applications (I would be too if I were applying to four of the top ten schools in the nation) and AJ is apartment hunting with his girlfriend. None of us know where we'll be in a year and that's daunting in and of itself. Add to that some everyday stressors and an existential crisis and we've got a winning combination.
The good news is that I can get things done when I sit down and concentrate. I got really far on our marketing plan when I put on my iPod, tuned out the world, and wrote. Hopefully I will be able to do the same thing for finance this weekend. I need to be able to price bonds and learn the difference between NPV and IRR. I also have birthday parties to go to and launrty to do, but I guess that's all secondary at this very moment in time. School is most definitely the priority.
But again, it's a bit bittersweet. I met some amazing people this time around (one in particular, whom I won't have classes with next semester) and I hate to see another chapter in life end. I need to continue to remember that things not only happen for a reason, but they happen when they're meant to. This summer held a lot of deadlines for me and they're getting too close for comfort. I promised myself that I would enjoy what may very well be my last LA summer. That I would start really looking for jobs next semester (super scary!) and that I would get it all together in order to make my next transition in life that much more smooth.
