Sometimes, I have temporary lapses in sanity, and in those moments, I decide that it would be a good idea to volunteer myself for additional responsibilities at work, church, or around the neighborhood. During my bouts of insanity, I forget that I am the world's biggest perfectionist, especially when it comes to my job, and I convince myself that I will be able to handle it all with ease.
A few months ago, when my school asked me to teach the English portion of an evening SAT Prep class for five weeks in the spring, it honestly seemed like a good idea. Well, I could use the money! Well, it'll be winding down to the end of the year, so I'm sure I won't have as much going on...
So, I agreed.
Tuesday, I spent 15 hours at the school: 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Thursday, I spent 14 hours at the school: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
I was working the entire time. I didn't even stop for lunch--or dinner.
I don't think this was a good idea.
Oh well!! Only four more weeks!
