Shut-Down

My brain is on overload.  It just took me three times to correctly type brain.
I can focus on anything that I don't need to focus on.  Ask me anything that is not about Shakespeare, Grammar, Charles Dickens, or Robert Lowell (who is wonderful, by the way), and I can answer.  Ask me how I'm doing on studying and my final projects, and I don't want to talk to you.  Go away, please, and come back when you are ready for me to ignore all things school.
I am currently working on something called "Invention Heuristics" which is not fun.  I am a little overwhelmed.

I need to take a deep breath, go to Starbucks, and work like a madwoman to conquer my mental list.
Mentally, this is me:

Dear Brain:
Let's just get through today together.  Please don't blow up on me.
Sincerely, me.

PS- check out my tab "bon blog design" - I'm just starting out.  Feedback, please.

    When my brain is on over-load, I have a girls weekend to relax. I'm leaving for Houston today for just that - I need a break! Have a great day!

    Great job on Chelsie's blog redesign! It looks fabulous! I'm thinking about a redesign soon too but I have to wait until me and the DH's his and hers photo shoot to have some new pics! Maybe we should talk!

  16. I'm working on the redesign of a room in my appartment...it's all I can think about and an overwhelming task which is going nowhere.

    One step at a time. With big deep breaths in between...and lots of prayers. He won't give you anything you can't handle.

    Thank you for sharing your human! ~ Michelle

  25. Glad to hear you're starting blog design. When I am a little more financially sound, there is a VERY good chance I'll be coming to you for a design.

    Also, good luck on your finals... I know how much studying can be a pain.
