General frustration

I am completely swamped with homework, and most of it is my fault; apparently when you don't keep track of due dates, you miss them. Who knew? My time management skills have been not so good this semester, and I keep needing to remind myself that I'm actually good at and excited about speech therapy. I got a test back today and I had forgotten to answer an essay question. I turned it in blank and lost 5 points. What is WRONG with me?
I am impatient with all my classes and just want to get some clients and get started. There is so much to do, so many children to reach, and I just wanna hit the ground running, even though I know that I do not have the knowledge and experience to do so yet. I'm worried that my lack of patience with classes and my rambunctious puppy means that I will not have patience with my clients. I'm worried that I won't get back on top of life. I'm tired of learning by failing. I'm a student taking a buttload of hard classes and it's the end of the semester. Such is life.

It's that time again

It is that time again, the time that every student dreads: the pile-up. There are always 2-3 weeks every semester when it seems like everyone is giving tests, projects, and papers, and you never quite seem to manage your time well enough to get it all done without panicking. Well, maybe some people do, but I don't. ;) I've been slack the past 2 weekends or so, just visiting with Chester instead of doing my homework like I usually do, and this week I'm paying for it. The domino effect of procrastination has begun! For example, I have a test in roughly an hour or so. However, I am typing a blog entry instead of studying or eating lunch.
