Day three of training went by quickly and pretty smoothly for me. Again, I don't know how much I actually absorbed but I think I'm doing okay so far. There is a lot of information, which I was warned about, and there's just no way that anyone's going to remember it all right away. It's a matter of just knowing what exists and then building from there. A lot of it is pretty straightforward too, so it's really just the amount of it that's a bit overwhelming at times. Overall though, I'm liking it so far.
The one problem with the training is that I'm not getting much homework done. Tonight I've gotten a bit of reading done but with the migraine I had yesterday, the night was a write off as far as doing any school work went. I know that I'll have more of a chance to get homework done once I've adjusted to the new routine and finished training but until then, I think it might be a bit hectic. I still have a lot of catching up to do but only in one class. I finally finished Freud and get to move on to Epstein who I think might be a little bit more interesting for me. I still had some photocopies to run off too that I got done tonight. I also got a little bit of reading done for my Buddhist class, so I'm not doing too badly at all.
When I got home from work tonight, I checked my messages and was pleasantly surprised to hear a message from J, who I went out with for Tea last week. It was totally unexpected and totally made my evening that much better! I haven't called him back yet because I wanted to get my school work done first but I think I'll give him a ring tomorrow when I get a free minute or two. I kind of wanted to call him back tonight but I'm still feeling a bit too brain dead to maintain much of a conversation with someone.
I have to say that I'm glad things have been falling into place so well. There has been the underlying stress of money but even that has been working out really well. I'm not the greatest with my money and I'll be the first to admit it but I'm also not completely terrible. I managed to pay a good chunk of my tuition, two and a half months of rent, buy my new furniture, feed and clothe myself and only really be running out now when more will soon be coming in. Of course there were a few treats for myself in there and a few unexpected expenses but overall I'm actually pretty proud of myself for controlling myself as well as I did. There's always room for improvement but that will come with time too. For now, I will pat myself on the back for making it this far. I am proud of myself.
