Almost done with spring semester

Gosh, I'm so close to finishing this semester, but I'm not sure if I'm excited or anxious. I've been taking 15 units while working two part time jobs, so I'm just constantly busy and feel like I barely have time to rest. I think I'm started to get burnt out. I've been feeling distracted lately, I keep thinking about all the things I want to do after finals. I kind of just want to skip ahead three weeks and start summer vacation. But I'm also really stressed about my grades. I'm right on the edge of a C- in Real Analysis, and I really need to pass this class for my major. My other grades are B's, which I'm a bit relieved about given how busy I've been, but I'm also disappointed in myself for having so many missing assignments.

I've also got to start thinking about graduation and applying to grad school. I still have about a year and a half to go, but I feel like I should already have plans and stuff. A lot of my professors have asked me what schools I'm looking at and what sort of topics or sub-fields I'm interested in, and I just don't know. I need to schedule an appointment with my advisor because next year I need to pick courses to develop my subplan.

I'm pretty optimistic about summer break, I'm really excited to work on some creative projects I've come up with over the last few months. I've been jotting down some notes in my brain dump notebook, I just need some free time to develop them a little. I'm really looking forward to a relaxing break to work on some fun things. For now though, I'm just tired. I feel like there's so many things going on that I need to keep track of, like there's so many thoughts always running in my head that I can't think straight. I just realized this morning that it's been about five weeks since the last time I wrote a journal entry, so I think I'm going to try to make some time in the evenings to start doing that again to clear my head.

That's a lot of work, but you're almost there! Focus on trying to pull that one grade up if you can. And you DO have a plan- talking to your advisor is a great first step. Maybe you feel that it's a little late, but you've been feeling a bit burnt out so that's understandable. Better late than not at all. Welcome back btw 😊
