My final year at UCLA was pretty hectic. I had four classes, a part time job that had me working roughly 20 hours a week, and Saturdays that were dedicated to volunteering for Habitat for Humanity. In addition to that, I had meetings to attend in the evening for Habitat.
I thought my life was pretty hectic my last year, yet I some how managed.
This year, I have 15 semester units, and I am somehow averaging 20 hours of work a week. I think I have taken more than I can handle. My GIS class is fantastic, but at the same time the workload is killing me. The studio class I am enrolled in has me making and drawing up maps, in addition to gathering information.
I need some time off in between work and school, or I will burn out soon. Despite all this, I feel like I will be fine. I always complain, but I know I will be fine. I think I thrive on a chaotic schedule.
