Thanks. I'm sure things will settle down once yearbook is finished in a month, and finals are over. Until then I'll just have to reap what I sowed, sort of speak. I took on too much and now I have to deal with the consquences.

I did tell my youth pastor that I need to step down from my leadership position for a little while which might help, and next year I'm determined not to take on too much. Thankfully since I've taken so many classes Junior year, my senior year should only include my core classes. I don't need any more electives or gov/econ or anything, so I should be able to focus on preparing for college. Or at least...that was the goal of me taking on this much this year! XD we'll see if it works...

I took your guy's advice about finding a person to talk to, and met with her (she's an adult, but not so much older than me that she can't...understand, if that makes sense xD) and it really did help, I think.

I feel SO bad though! With all of the things that have been happening with Kenzie, school, and family drama, I completely forgot the fact that Sour's birthday was yesterday. Not that she's going to care one way or another, but I felt aweful about it xD I was hoping to give her a bath and try those diamond braids for some pictures. Ofcourse, that probably wouldn't have worked out too well considering that its a mud pit here. But anyways...

HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY SOUR!

All I can say, Endiku, is WOW!! I just found this journal, but have been following Kenzi's trials and tribulations. My initial reaction is wishing I could reach out and give you the biggest, longest hug!!! You are simply amazing.

You are so incredibly generous trying to do so many good things for other people. But as you have found, it is so easy to become overburdened with obligations. At some point, no matter how good your intentions, you just can't do it all. There are only so many hours in the day.

The stress is definitely taking its toll on your young, now fragile body and doing a number on your mental health as well. I am so glad you have found someone who you can vent with. We all need that on a regular basis! I'm also relieved to see that you have found a way to decrease a little bit of your obligations. I am sure that once people realize how much you have taken on, they will be nothing short of 100% amazed and understanding your need to cut back.

That chemistry assignment boggles my mind! Looks very much like college level to be sure. I commend you for taking on such a difficult subject, especially taking into consideration the added challenges you face in trying to learn it. I hope there is some way you can access some free tutoring services, especially for the math. Between math and chemistry, I would be freaking out!

As for the Occupational Therapy, it's a wonderful profession! Are there any technical schools close to you? Sometimes they have great OT programs. I hope you get that full-ride scholarship in KY. That would be awesome.

Please continue to do only what you can handle. Many of us have that "Can't Say No" disease so don't feel guilty one bit when you have to say NO to someone no matter how good a cause it might be. Hang in there, girl. You're doing AWESOME!!! Try not to get too discouraged and by all means, do NOT come down on yourself. It certainly is not warranted and it will only make you feel worse.

Just say to yourself - or better yet, out loud, "I AM WOMAN! HEAR ME ROAR!!!!! As a woman, you need to be your own best friend and advocate.

Hold your Head UP HIGH and exude confidence even if you don't feel it inside. If you THINK it, it will happen. Truly, it will.

Have a GREAT DAY today and keep up the good work. I'm sending all positive thoughts your way! Also, please feel free to PM me any time you want to vent. My shoulder is always "open".

Aww, you're amazing Cpr Saves, and I'm glad to hear that you've been following Kenzie's journey! My biggest stress right now is her, especially considering the added complications that we've been facing with trying to rehome her and being delayed, but I'm hoping and praying that we'll have a good answer soon. Once I know she's going to be safe, I think I'll feel much more relieved.

There actually are quite a few options for me when it comes time for me to go to college, for my graduates degree. Texas Tech is one good option, as well as Baylor (too expensive for me xD), UT, and you of H, so I'm hoping between all of those and applying for Berea, I can find a good solution.

Other than that, finals are coming up so I'm studying my brains out...I did very poorly (D+...I felt aweful!) on my last test in Discreet mathematics so I'm pretty worried...thats the worst test grade I've gotten this year, and so close to finals! I'm hoping that my studying will pay off though.

Also, I'm participating in a church talent show tonight, playing the guitar and sincing 'The River' by Garth Brooks, so I've been pretty nervous about that. Its for a great cause though, so i'm glad to be in it. We're paying for a korean youth group to go to camp for the first time with what we earn from the talent show/dinner. This will be my first time singing in front of an audience though. Yikes!

I have an idea for your performance tonight. Pretend you are singing to Kenzie out in the pasture on a beautiful day with a light breeze. Just you, her and the great outdoors.

Don't forget to breathe! Wish I could watch. I know you'll be Great!

Just have fun!

I had a blast! I stayed busy until the moment before so I wouldn't be too nervous, and it was really fun. I did mess up once or twice but nothing too drastic.

Bleh. I don't know how I'm going to pass that final. We only had 70 minutes and it was 60 problems long with tons of graphing and number crunching, and I take longer than most people, so I didn't even get to finish the problems, much less check my answers >.>
