I have absolutely no concept of “middle ground.” Case in point: realizing that I will most likely not get a 4.0 this semester, I’ve spent most of today not working on the 4 papers I have due this week.

Instead, I made cards with Evan and June (lots of stickers were involved), saw a counselor for the overwhelming anxiety that results from my all-or-nothing mindset, went to the grocery store with both kids and Jarom, skipped class, read the internet, started blogging, and waited for Doctor Who to load. (Season 6 isn’t available from any legitimate sites, so we have to watch from somewhat shady sites with names like megavidz.) Also, ate cinnamon graham crackers.

How do you find balance? How do you accept that you might be neither exceptional nor a failure? Seriously, I could use some help.

In other news, Evan and I made a countdown chair. We’ll be in California in two weeks!
