So, Spring Break is over and I really needed a few more weeks to get organized and just relax. The dread of going back to class made me realize that I need to get this school thing behind me quickly. I like going to class and meeting new people and learning new things, but I hate homework with a passion--I always have. I'm a good student and I make good grades but the thought of writing papers and reading chapter after chapter of mind-numbing textbooks makes my head hurt.
I hate the time of night when I finally get my kids tucked into bed and the house is totally quiet and I know that I have several hours of homework waiting for me. Sometimes I just put it off and go to bed with the plan to wake up super early the next day. And I do that a lot. I guess it's my "process" as a student.
You may think that after all the money I pay for school that I would be excited to comb through the books and find new ways to express my theories on paper. But the truth is I liked being a stay-at-home mom who didn't have to worry about beginning a new career. I don't like missing out on my kids' field trips at school and lunch dates with my friends so that I can sit for 2 hours on a hard plastic seat and expand my mind.
And did I mention that I hate homework?
