My Mantra: When I'm done with School

I know that I've been fairly sporadic about posting, but when I'm done with school I'm going to resume my former schedule of posting 3-4 times a week. Actually, it's been kinda funny, but every time something fun comes up I immediately say, "I'm going to do that when I'm done with school". Class three nights a week after working 9-10 hour days plus all the study that I do over the weekend has sucked the life out of my life!

When I'm done with school I'm going to apply all the time that I've spent on my classes per week and put it towards my book. When I'm done with school I am going to start hosting weekly dinner parties every Tuesday. I will cook with food from the CSA program that I will join. When I'm done with school I'll take the dog on more walks and will teach her more tricks. When I am done with school I'll start exercising again. When I'm done with school I will go visit friends that I haven't spend time seeing over the past several months. When I am done with school I will finally make it to those membership committee meetings at yacht club and to my Junior League events and to the prospective member meetings for the Lincoln Park Zoo. I'll go to all the fundraisers for them, many of which I will help put on.

When I'm done paying for school, that whole extra bill that's bigger than my mortgage will be gone and I can start doing normal things like get cable or a second car so the hubby and I don't have to share.

These are just a few things. I hope I have enough time to do all the things that I want to do before I start to shift my focus towards grad school, which was the whole reason I went back to complete the undergrad to begin with :) But before that I will have my novel completed, revised and going through the submission process.

Tune in later this week for a fantasy world building related post about different types of calendars in different types of cultures.

In that vein, what's your favorite world building special detail that others overlook, but you make sure not to?

I've never been done with school. I ended up teaching it. the horror, the horror.!

I know how it feels. I had someone ask me earlier what I do in my time outside university, and I realised that I could hardly think of anything.

It's hard to do anything else when you've got school! There are so many things that I want to do with my time but i always have to put school first. I still have two semesters of college! But the thought of being done with school completely also creeps me out. Good luck with managing your time, it really is hard work to manage time!

I had the same mantra when I was in school. I ended up doing a lot of things when I actually finished. One of them is writing books. Charge ahead! You can do it!
