Just feel a bit frustrated and ugh I do not know, guess afraid to admit that it is okay to just say "no" and whatnot. I keep telling myself to be grateful that this lady is understanding since there are MANY people who act like "suck it up," etc. when I DO have a lot on my plate. I always say this: but when I am not in school or busy doing school assignments, I am WRITING-especially with contests that I am HOPING to submit to (even though these contests are a long shot, especially for someone my age)
Maybe this semester, I should just focus again on school and writing so when summer comes, I will just intern. I am a bit bummed and just feel super tired. I will admit that I RARELY give myself credit ever and I know a lot has to do with because of some people I have been associated with over the years and I NEVER want to come off as cocky and conceited.
I am going to sleep on this decision and respond HOPEFULLY tomorrow. I am planning to talk to my mom later (since I have "told" her things that have been on my mind for a while) I truly do think that my worries/stress/and-knock on wood-anxiety [but minor] have been pushed up from overwhelming myself and not letting myself just rest and relax.
