As most of you know, I am a very determined individual. When I put my mind to completing a task or hitting a goal, I will move Heaven and Earth to make that happen. I will sacrifice sleep, ignore other things around me, and usually be a difficult person to get along with when the finish line is within sight. My temper is short and patience slim. I tend to snap at the people around me and often have a difficult time sleeping which makes things not so pleasant.
I’m there now. I take my GMAT on Saturday and have submitted all of my 10 billion applications and other pieces of paperwork to PSU to gain admission into their MBA program. Work has been stressful as many of my coworkers have been on vacation and I’ve covered some of their work too. I’m trying to finish up one part of a side project, train for the marathon and other races, maintain a shoe-string budget, keep up on other household duties, etc. And to top it all off, my eye doctor has spotted an abnormality in my right eye and is sending me to a specialist for more tests. So as I sit here typing this post out, I am tired, irritable and need more than a nap to recover.
I apologize for my short temper and irritability. I apologize mostly to Andy who bears the brunt of my charm. I’m taking a few days off from work after the GMAT. I plan to sleep.
So in the meantime, I’m not ignoring you. I just can’t put anything more on my plate to deal with. Love you all.
