Because I took an extended leave of absence to take care of my mum, I hit the ground running and launched back into studying and work at full speed again once I arrived back in Adelaide. For the first time since resuming though, I'm starting to think I've bitten off more than I can chew.
Fortunately I have things like Twitter and my blog here. Most of said blog's posts you read here I've typed on my iTelephone while commuting on the train and consider them a pleasant distraction and break from my responsibilities; I suppose I just wish the ratio was a bit more favourable!
My father back in Singapore who works his brains out 24/7 has assured me such studying and work is giving me experience for what to expect when I'll [hopefully] hold down a full time job when I graduate! If you're a student, or a worker who's probably doing more for less now in a difficult economic climate, or an unemployed person who's desperately searching for work, or a parent taking care of a crazy infant, or some combination of all of the above, what are you strategies for remaining sane?
