The opening night of the school musical is just hours away and my family is driving three hours to come see it. My friends have purchased their tickets and the school day is nearly over. I should be excited, thrilled, and beyond happy. But, I’m not. Why? Because this week my teachers decided to bury me, six feet deep, with homework. I can’t be excited about anything, when I know how many hours it’s going to take to get through all of this work. Hours, mind you, that I do not have. I’m already going to be spending 14 hours of my weekend at the school for the musical! All of these projects have me overwhelmed and I don’t know how I am ever going to get it all done. It’s going to take a miracle. My strategy is to work as much as I can, every possible second. I’m prepared for the exhaustion that will ensue. Wish me luck, I’m going to need it.
