The first week of classes is always chaotic for us here at the college, but something about this semester feels more cumbersome than the last. Nothing is going right, everyone is completely over-extended and students keep coming into my office and asking me the most annoying questions. Seriously, what about the sign on the door reading "Human Resources" translates into "We cater to the student population"?
Ugh, I know it's the first week of classes and students are lost and/or confused, and that's not their fault. I should really cut the kiddos some slack. I'm just crabby because Looper was a terrible movie, and I squandered almost two hours of my life trying to watch it yesterday (when I have a grudge, I just can't let it go).
Is it really only Wednesday? (Funny, I asked myself the same thing yesterday—"Is it really only Tuesday?")
I am so looking forward to a stress-reducing workout tonight. Then the hubs and I will be using the last of our Christmas gift certificates for dinner at one of our favorite local spots—Sweet Grass. Nothing can make a hectic work week fade away faster than a plate of fried green tomatoes.
How about some mid-week motivation?
|I want this girl's core ... and tan.|
|Can I get an "Amen"? This is SO the week I'm having.|
|This looks delicious! Makes me want to march right home and cook a hearty, healthy meal! |
Good food ALWAYS perks me right up!
I hope everyone is having a good week. Happy Hump Day and if you're struggling today, it will get better!
Curious, what do you do to calm yourself down after a crazy day? How do you punch stress in the face?
