I met with the head teacher and am ok. I realized he has much more experience than I do. I was grateful for his advice. So far, they have not given me any new students. I am ok for now. I have time to sleep and relax. I realize the head teacher has his schedule full. I think this is great for him. On the other hand, I need to maintain my sanity. I hope they realize that giving me more than I can handle is not a good idea. I will keep my fingers crossed that they slow down or don't give me students for awhile. I need to try out his ideas on my students and this takes time. I am happy for now!!

They are giving me more students!! argh!! I am going to have a major conniption!! ARRGH!! I need to punch myself out and calm down. I just had the meeting with the head teacher!! Once I reach 20 hours, I feel like rejecting more students!! But, I'm not there yet. So, I will just remain calm.

I remember when I taught, anything more than 20 hours was too difficult for me (I was also in graduate school at the time). It's because 20 teaching hours is really like a 40-hour week in terms of preparation and stuff...

Now I don't teach as many hours...

I was so tired that I slept during my break. So far, they only gave me two more students one lesson each week. It is not too bad. I am still below 20 hours so am hoping that my delayed response to accepting students will give me some time. I feel fine now that I slept. I am always tired though. I should drink coffee. Sometimes, I forget to drink coffee. I drink about 1 to 2 cups a day when I remember.


I am doing well now. So far nobody is complaining about me! This is nice!! If I can keep it this way, it would be great. But, sometimes I get lazy and don't prepare as well. I learned that first impressions are important so I need to focus on the first lesson. I learned some things from the head coach. I want to implement them and am slowly starting to do so. At least, the company is giving me support which is nice.


I'm thinking of getting orthokeratology lenses and stop wearing glasses. They are expensive though so I have to think about it carefully. I want to improve my appearance so I feel good about myself. I am waiting to hear from the eye doctor's office for an appointment.

Overall, I am happy!

I'm doing ok today. I took my medication as usual. I feel great!! I received an appointment from the eye doctor. I will see how it goes. I am doing well. I slept well and walked up the stairs just now. I am eating healthy too. I try not to eat junk food but am still overweight though. I am feeling better. I have a good schedule now so life is not bad. I could exercise more. I will try to do this. I am beginning to like the students I have. They are nice to me. I do have two new students though and will focus on doing a great initial lesson. I feel grateful for all that I have. Life could not be better!

I am feeling good today. I felt okay all week. I need to work on a few things, though. I need to work on being more self-compassionate. It's hard, but it pays off.
