Good for you for accepting your instructors offer! It sounds like you need a break, a mind refresher. Go out, use some of your money and go to the movies or dinner with your boyfriend or a good friend of yours and just don't worry! Or, you could bring your boyfriend or some good (non horsey maybe!) friends to your barn and introduce them to the horses there and give them a tour. If you just keep pushing yourself to work more, study harder, etc., with no break you won't be helping yourself, even the strongest people crack. So give yourself something to do with friends or horses, then take a deep breath, carry on with life, but be sure not to pressure yourself to much and give yourself little breaks! If its not to distracting, you could study at your barn with the horses to be around them.
