The past few days, I've been working my tail off at school, trying to get ahead on work. The class I'm currently taking (only one for now) has all the assignments available for the rest of the semester. I love this because I can create so much margin for myself, for sick days, for travel days, for visiting with the fam days. But I think I may have been working myself a bit too hard.
I could feel the fatigue creeping up on me today, the day I really wanted to take my first unit exam. However, as the time to sit down in front of the computer and test approached (I can take my exam whenever I like), I realized that I needed to rest. So I did for most of the afternoon.
When I did go to take my exam though, I discovered it wasn't posted and I was denied access to it. It was like God firmly saying to me, "You need to take a break, you need to slow down, and I'm going to force you to."
*chuckles* I really need to learn to pace myself. Sprinting is not going to work for me. I still want to keep a fast pace, but I can't push myself.
Today's lesson: I need a break every few days, not just on Saturdays.
