Six more weeks max

Looking at my life right now, I've been trying to make a plan to manage my enormous level of commitment, and, by consequence, stress, that I've got going on right now. The only real solution seems to be I just need to stick it out until May. I was not thrilled to realize this, as I really am struggling with the amount of work and responsibility I've got right now, but there just isn't anything I can step back from. Not without enormous negative consequences, anyway. So I don't think there's anything left but to steel myself with the end in mind.

Because it does turn out that by the first or second week of May, all the stuff I'm currently doing should reach completion. My teaching semesters will end and I'll get a short break. My shows will have gone up. I will not be responsible for so much. And that's only a month to six weeks away. I hope I don't break down in that time, but I think I can handle that knowing that a respite is coming.

I think I'm going to take it easy this summer. I've got my work more or less nailed down for the fall, so I don't need to worry about getting classes this time around. So, even though it will mean less money, maybe I'll just tutor and do like one class to keep my resume solid. I could use a few light months, after the constant demand I've been living. And I won't take on a lot of big projects. I'll focus on taking care of myself-- something that's fallen by the wayside very much recently --and having a little fun, seeing friends and doing non-work stuff. Go back to writing! I know I tend to always load myself up when I have free time, but I really want to commit to being uncommitted during that time. My mental and physical health might need it.
