i forgot how to work.

tomorrow is my first day. i'm a little nervous & i don't really know what to expect or where to go or who to ask for. i tried to set the coffee up for tomorrow morning and accidentally brewed it instead so i had to dump it out and make it all over again.

i still haven't figured out my school schedule for this semester. i've emailed a few professors and haven't heard anything back yet. i'm also worried about what i'm going to do with the dogs when i'm gone for 12 hours a day and charlie's out of town.

i'm also worried about finding time to study and sleep. i know this job is going to require more than 40 hours a week and when you add two classes to that it doesn't leave time for much else. like grocery shopping, or walking the dogs, or doing the laundry, or cleaning the house. i have a feeling charlie is going to be doing a lot of skiing on the weekends without me.

i'm hoping that i can remember physics. and math. and how to write a lesson plan.

Have faith. Somehow, SOMEHOW, it all happens. I have no idea how but it does. And it even leaves you a little time to unwind now and again. It'll be a change, but hang in there. Focus on the necessities: sleep, eating well, and taking care of yourself, Charlie and the zoo and the rest will fall into place. Congrats on your first day!
