Oh I'm Stressed

I might just pull out all my hair, put my thumb in my mouth and curl up under the coffee table (like Lily does). I'm so flippin' stressed out right now that I could scream. Instead of making it better and dealing with the stress I'm just crying about it, which is really effective (note the sarcasm)

I'm heading off to bed now but here's the cliff notes.

1. I have a 35 page paper (strategic plan) and a 22 slide Power Point due on the 16th. I have not started. I have total writer's block on this, though I've done the research.

2. My new job...it's tough. Under the heading Foreign Military Sales Fire Scout Logistics is my name, with the words "Team Lead" next to it and no "team" to speak of. It's a great honor that they trust me, but they are highly misguided and I am not prepared for this job. If I do well (20% chance) I will really make a name for myself in the Navy. If I suck it up, well, I'll have other chances, but I'd really like to do well.

Ok, I'm going to bed. Pass out while crying is more like it.

I wish that I had some wonderful, clever advice for you, but I really don't. So here is my lame advice - As far as the new job goes - just take it one day at a time and stay positive. I always like to think that things can only get better... (which really isn't true, because I am sure that it could be much, much worse...)

I ditto Missy with the positive attitude thing. Congrats on the new job, though. If they didn't think you could do it, I'm sure they wouldn't have given you the job in the first place. So relax and do your best to prove them right. As for the paper, good lord. That will be a bitch to do. Do some deep breathing exercises. Drink a cup of tea. Take a nice walk. Once you feel relaxed enough, look over your research and get crackin. Hope that helps.:)

Sorry you're having such a bad case of writer's block! Just hack through it...it'll get easier around page 33. :)
