TGIF

Thank you to everyone who commented about my pity party. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one to be a neurotic mess from time to time.
I feel better, but still a little overwhelmed. I took today off from working out which I think was really smart because I needed the time to catch up on some duties around the house. I get really crazy when my house is so out of sorts.
On the school front - shit is going to hit the fan tomorow. Remember that awesome accouting test that I scored a whopping 46% on? Well, the instructor is in some hot water for being such a shitty professor. There are way too many issues for me to adress here but long story short - she is being put in the hot seat tomorow. I guess someone is coming in to our class to listen to our concerns. It's pretty bad. I'll keep you updated. Someday (long after I graduate and am not consumed with school 24/7) I'll dish the dirt. Actually, probably not - it's not that interesting unless your in the class. So I spend some time typing out my concerns with possible solutions. It will probably be a bitch session for most of these guys, but I actually want to spend the last two months of the semseter learning not suffering so hopefully they will implement some changes.
Also, I am going through a bought of insomnia which has considerably contributed to my anger. It happens every couple of months. i usually have about two weeks of really really poor sleep. This is a typical night: Go to bed about 9pm. I am tired yet can't fall asleep. Watch tv or read magazine until I feel more sleepy. Finally get to sleep around 11 or 12am. Wake up at about 1:30. Fall back asleep around 4:30. Alarm goes off at either 4:48 or 5:30ish (depending on the day). Hit snooze a few times and skip any workout I had planned for that morning. I am scared to get meds because I'll probably get addicted. I usually just ride it out and act extra bitchy. Not really good for anybody, but it is what it is.
Tomorow I'm doing some serious workouts...hopefully I can get some sleep and get out of bed in the morning.
5am Swim, 6am Spin, 25 min Run, Raquetball
Hope all is well in the blogosphere tonight. Peace.

When I was in grad school we had to have an "intervention" regarding one of our professors. Not much changed while I was in his class, but I don't think he teaches any more. Hopefully your "intervention" goes better.

Also, you're smart to take a day off from working out. I'm still trying to decide when it's okay and when it's not.

That shiz can NOT be real...she's worried about noise and vibration but not the tar in the babies lungs!?!?! Holy crap!

That looks like a killer day of working out to me!

Alisa said...

What's up with the white trash pic? Doesn't she realize she is smoking? Um...

Glad you took a day off!

Oh and this summer you should totally come down to P-town and hang out. I understand wanting to be with the hubs when he is in town.

Wow, sounds like your teacher is bad news! I can't believe people are coming in to listen to you guys, she must be terrible! I hope everything gets worked out.

Nice workouts planned for today. I hope they went well!

Oh, and the same thing happens to me from time to time w/ insomnia. I hate it!

PS- you have a picture on your side bar that says "Vashon Island Xterra" - when is that one? I visited Vashon Island two years ago and LOVED it. I'd love to go back and do a race!

Kind of loving the picture! ha ha. Sorry about the prof! I hope it works out. . .

Chloe said...

That picture is KILLING me! Ha! Love it!

Ugh - I HATE professors that think they can crap gold. Just be fair and teach me what I need to know! Good luck with that :)

Happy Friday!!

Sorry about class drama...glad that you guys are getting an opportunity to express your concerns. Never fun if you feel completely helpless!

That picture is freaking hilarious. I live in Roanoke and sadly, the preggers girl with a cig doesn't surprise me a bit.
