I estimate my derivative study time to about a solid 8 hours. With a meal breaks, an afternoon walk, and a power nap, I’ve reached the end of my day feeling like a zombie student.

This particular course is based on video lectures that are well made, and educational. I adore my teachers methods, but there’s a lot to watch. My eyes are tired, my fingers soar, and my head numb.

I’m enjoying down time with St before a good night sleep. I have an early morning tutoring session at 8 am tomorrow, it was the only time available for my school paid tutor. I’ll be napping after it before concluding my homework. Another long day is ahead.

It was hard. I mean, one question was hard. I flew through three questions out of four without problems, but the that one question contained my two weaknesses. I took the same time I spent on the three other question on that single one not even being able to finish it. I was drained, and I slept for two hours after my four hour none stop exam session. That was my day. I took a walk, cooked yummy food, and about to cuddle with St while watching our favourite show. Tomorrow, the math marathon starts. Thirty hours of videos, and an equivalent amount of time in exercises need to be done before I can even start reviewing befor the exam. Intense. My weekend will be spent my nose in my books.

I’m grateful for St’s patience, and kindness.

I’m allowed my notes, and my book during my physics exam tomorrow morning, aandI’m maximizing this advantage. From identified page tabs, to hand written notes, I made sure to know where I could find the explanation or an exemple to help me resolve any problem. As long as my strategy, and my logic is sound, even if I make mathematical mistakes, I will pass my exam.

I’m off to bed so I can be ready early tomorrow. All will be well. If my energy levels are uneven, I have a system in pkace to help me succeed.

I’m grateful for organization.

Crunching some studies before my physics exam on Thursday. So far, so good, but I’m exhausted. I can only really function about 6 hours in a day, and I’m still sleeping 10 to 12 hours a day. I’m really tired. I wish I had more time to rest between study sessions. Tomorrow, all my focus, and energy is going to my books. For now, it’s time to sleep.

Gratitude Journal:

I’m grateful for the cool nights of the approaching Fall.

Good sleep, healthy food, and a little over the counter pharmaceutical helped me regain some strength. I managed to finish my reading, and exercise, and even did my last homework. Only a short nap was needed for me to complete all my tasks. I’m gald to feel better.

Not much is happening, and I’m tired. Let’s see if I have more to say tomorrow. Night night.

I’m grateful for having a wonderful caring boyfriend.

I forgot to blog last night because I chatted on the phone with my best friend in the evening, then got a surprise call from an other friend. Plus this morning I got a call from my Singapore friend. Lots of chit-chat.

I’m almdone my physics exercises before completing my last homework, and starting to study for my exam. I’m exhausted though. My health hasn’t been the greatest, and my weekends way to busy. I’m trying to cope as best as I can, but I’m not half as energetic as normal. Well a new normal for me with my chronic fatigue.

Hopefully tonight’s good food, and St’s good care will help. To be continued.
