So I screwed up royally

Not only did I arrange to meet Becca when I also was supposed to be tutoring, but I managed to accidentally miss showing up for both of them. School just ended and I was tired and thought how nice it'd be to go home and take a nap before dinner. So I went to my two tutor kids and then went home. Only problem? I had three tutor kids today.

Then when I went home and took that precious nap that was so more important than my two dueling commitments, the alarm I set? Blew right through it. As if that wasn't enough, that salmon I put in the oven? Dried it out because I didn't take it out on time. What was I doing? Well based on the burnt brown rice, I wasn't minding the rice.

At this point, I may as well go kill a baby duck, drop out of school, cheat on my boyfriend, and sell a sister into prostitution.

Its called burn out - so be careful to schedule some time out for yourself to - sleep/read for fun/or anything else that only needs you to organise!! Burn out can be avoided!! Good luck!

Oh girl, when you're trying to juggle so many balls at once, it's not surprising that you'll drop one or two at some point in time. Be forgiving to yourself. You're only human. Don't feel bad about the one or two things you screw up. Be proud of the 98 other things that you don't. :)

So there is an old saying, "Death is your body's way of telling you to slow down." What happened today is sort of the equivalent. You have got to find some time for yourself to just relax or the toll of all of this on your body is not going to be pretty. Please be kind to yourself even if it means being a little selfish every once in a while.

Everyone has a goof-up day once in a while. I'm sure you apologized profusely to your third tutoree & his/her parents, and to Becca, and no one hates you because dinner wasn't terrific. Forgive yourself and take it easy...tomorrow's a new day!
