F.I.N.O

 Only two weeks ago I was wishing for school to start again because the three months off seemed like an eternity. However, be careful what you wish for. It is not the seven different classes I am taking, the weekly quizzes or the time constraints of it all. It is getting my mind and a daily routine established to the new chaos of this journey. It is freaking me out that books and papers are already in piles on the table, shelf and floor, I need to take a deep breath, get organized and remember.

Remember that this is doable and that hundreds have done it before me, feeling the same stressful feeling of what the hell did I get myself into.

One instructor said to take the philosophy of Failure Is Not an Option. I like that mentality and will fight through until I find my new routine.

I'm there with you in spirit. It is difficult to get a routine down so one can just focus on getting the work done - almost more difficult is the first step:

organizing...

I'm finally there. My schedule is pretty down pat - finally - and I'm starting to feel the groove.

You'll get there :)

FINO!!!!!

AD2B, I know I will get there, I see light at the end of the tunnel or a train coming.

The start of any new semester is scary - I hate the first week because I am a nerd that likes to be uber prepared and have read the chapter before the lecture that covers it, and when I haven't, I feel like I'm way behind. You can do it! You can also pretend that FINA stands for I'll feel fina than Carolina when I kick ass on this quiz :)

oh jeez I just realized it's fino. Oh well. Failure Is Not An is an excellent motto as well. Right.

Pollyanna, I understand.

Had a prof who used that motto. It worked for the most part... we had a 100% pass rate for that semester.
