I'm faced with a lot to do in front of me. A lot because I'm choosing it. Choosing to get a Master's Degree, choosing to run a business, and choosing to consider getting a job (putting the business on hold will give me more free time, but that also means making applications and resumes and more work in the beginning).
The Master's degree is a job in an of itself. Taking the GRE, getting letters of referral, writing a letter of intent, etc. Deadline to apply is Dec. 15th. But that's for next year's program. Which means I have to do a lot starting now. I must prepare for the GRE really fast. Not exactly how I wanted to be spending the next 4 weeks, but in the long run it will pay off.
I'm going to cancel my road trip to Arizona this week as well. I don't want to do that, but I know that AZ will be there when the next road trip comes along.
The next 30 days are going to be busy. I'm going to have to balance my time better, do more in less time, and deal with the stress of it all. I lost sleep last night just thinking about it. But it can be done. I'm pretty laid back most of the time, so learning to work fast and efficient should be a healthy challenge.
