    Life is so irratating. Can there please be more hours per day and more days per week?

    I feel like I am be crushed by my life. I love my life and everything I do, but I feel like I have no time to relax and there is always something hanging over my head.

    I am a full time HS student, a part-time community college student and I have two jobs. Here is my week at a glance.

    Monday/Wednesdays -
    - 1:20 - 4:20 community college class
    - 4:30ish - 6:30 ride/spend time with my horsie (Lady)
    - 7:00 - 8:00 Band Practice

    Tuesdays/thursdays/fridays -
    - 11:00 - 4:30 assist the college riding classes (Job 1)
    - spending time with Lady 4:30 - 6:30

    Saturdays -
    - 7:00am - 9:30am Feed/hay and turn out around 20 some horses(Job 2)
    - 9:30 - 3:30 Help with saturday lessons (Job 1)
    - 3:30 - 5:30 Feed/hay and turn in horses from that morning (job 2)

    Sundays -
    - 7:00 - 9:30 feed/hay turn out horses (job 2)
    - 11:00 - 12:30 church
    - 3:30 - 5:30 feed/hay turn in horses (job 2)
    - 5:00 - 6:00 Choir Practice
    - 6:00 - 8:00 Youth Goup

    I am working about 30 hours a week and any time inbetween is either spent sleeping or doing schoolwork (I'm homeschooled).

    I haven't had time to go hang out with friends in weeks (months?) and I never have time to cook any thing that takes more than 30 minutes.

    I can't give up anything though, I need the jobs to pay for Lady's board, I enjoy the college class and need it for my credits and I love church and my band.

    I just feel so overwhelmed and claustrophobic some days. I can't wait for the summer!

    thanks for listening/reading to my rant. I feel a little better now getting it all out.

    I know it's tough, but hang in there! The end result is the payoff! You're doing great trying to find a balance with everything! [​IMG] Summer is coming and will be here sooner than you think. [​IMG]

    Life is full of choices Corey, sometimes we have to do things we don't want to and sometimes we have to put off things we want to do.
    If you don't want to drop something, just SUCK IT UP and keep going!

    Wow, you're a busy person! Sounds like me in HS. [​IMG]

    Summer is around the corner, though, so just hang in there.
