So just to give ya'll a heads up!
I'm... a tiiiny bit drowning in stress, to say the least. Not saying that because I'm trying to baw for sympathy, just that it's a fact. Up until now I've been trying to get work experience while working on my master's degree, so I could get a job with which I could feasibly support myself (my current position wasn't really hacking it). My parents have been helping to support me while I do that. Unfortunately, that's not going be able to fly anymore. My two sisters are both moving out of the house so they can go to college, and my parents are going to be helping to pay their expenses. My parents are also moving for my dad's new job. Suffice it to say they can't support three households at once and pay to move, so I'm getting cut off. Which is completely fair, I'm twenty-four years old and by all rights I should be supporting myself by this point but... the fact that this was happening got sprung on me very suddenly, so I'm suddenly being faced with a very, very critical time crunch.
Basically what has to happen is this- the museum where I work has to give me more hours and a raise, so I can move out of the house I've been living in and support myself in an apartment. If that works out, great so long as I can sell my house in a timely fashion (always the kicker). If I can't wiggle the raise out of them, though, I'm going to have to move in with my two sisters in a completely different city. So that's fun! Oh, and while I'm trying to get my house ready to sell, I still have to juggle my job and four master classes at once. But hey, who needs sleep, am I right?
Joys of being a grown up. You work late on your birthday, you have to pay your own bills, and no matter how many times you insist to your brain that you can only do as much at one time as you are capable of, it will insist on screaming at you with a laundry list of all the things you still need to do but haven't yet.
So what are ya'll up to?
