Coming out on the other side...

I haven't written in my journal for ages, which I absolutely hate, but I have just been MORE BURIED THAN I HAVE EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE. Which is really saying something. But now, finally, I am just days away from having completed all my obligations in this the most INTENSE PERIOD I'VE EVER HAD.

I just finished all my grading and submitted my grades for my two classes. Mrs. Hawking and Vivat Regina's latest performances have wrapped, leaving only the cleaning and putting away. My tutoring job will go on a two-week hiatus after this Thursday. The show I am costuming at Dana Hall goes up this weekend. So once I hit this Sunday, I am FINALLY DONE WITH MY RIDICULOUS LEVEL OF COMMITMENT.

THANK GOD. I am burnt out like I've never been in my life. I am looking forward to my very light summer, which will consist of just tutoring, no classes or anything, and very little else. It means I won't be making much money, but my schedule and my responsibilities will be light enough to give me a much needed break. I am going to do my very best to rest and recharge and not load myself up with projects and commitments as is my usual wont.

In devoting all my energy to just getting things done, I haven't been taking very good care of myself. I've been off my diet for like three weeks now and I feel lousy. My skin is more of an acne horrorscape than it's been in ages. The only exercise I've gotten is running from place to place and hauling set pieces. So I'd really like to take the time to put myself back together and start focusing on my own wellbeing. God, I can't wait until this weekend.
