Here we go again.
Another semester of school started this morning and for this first time in three years, I wasn’t terribly excited about going back. Despite the fact that all of the “hard” classes are behind me; I managed to pass the multitude of required math and science classes that just about sent me over the edge. Plus, I only have three semesters to go until I have my Bachelors degree. This should be easy peasy.
Yet, I am a stressed out chick today.
This is the first semester that I am attempting to complete 15 hours and still maintain a 4.0 GPA. My thought process on this when I registered for classes was that I am unemployed right now. This is the first time that I will only be going to school without the added stress of a 40 hour work week.
So. I can do this.
My five classes are: Grant Writing (this is the class causing me the most anxiety), Writing for Work (should be easy since I finished Intro to Tech Writing last semester with an A), Employment Law (another class that shouldn’t kill me since I worked in Human Resources for a number of years), Organizational Management (on the fence with this one) and Constitutional Law: Civil Liberties (tiny bit worried about this one as it is my first real law class outside of American Government).
Really. I can do this.
The Grant Writing course is the class that has my sanity in question. I discovered today that is a Senior and Grad level course and so far, I appear to be the only one with no grant writing experience. Also, we have to work with a non-profit, then write and submit an actual grant. I already feel sorry for the non-profit that works with me and the money they are going to lose out on.
No, seriously. I can do this.
