I have been through a lot these past few months. Today, I achieved most of the goals I set out for myself. I am proud of how I have improved on my time management and self care. Little wins.

Feeling a little overwhelmed about all the work ahead of me in the next few weeks. Apprehensive and unsure of how I will manage workload. Finding it difficult to layout a schedule/routine.

It can be super overwhelming if you look at it as a whole. Break things down, maybe with a to do list. Sometimes that's the only way I manage!

Thanks Jeff! I guess I kind of did that. Stuck to my guns today. Stayed after school and got some work done, went for a walk when I went home.I am really focusing on my time management and self care at the minute:)
