The Countdown Begins, My Fear of Failure
It’s really not a countdown, because there are more than 30 days until the research papers are due. Let’s face it, that’s what I’m worried about–the research papers. I will keep up with the weekly assignments and get them in on time and do well on them, but I’m terrified of these papers and I know it’s unreasonable.
I have good outlines. I’m beginning to do the research. I’m getting there. I hate last minute stuff, but I think it may be coming down to that. I did ask for help, though–and I got it and it’s the main reason I’m as far along as I am. I know I will be fine and the papers will be good, but I have a healthy (maybe, unhealthy) fear of failure.
Today, I’ll be working on the stuff due Monday, prep for the rest of the week and the future work. I don’t have class on Wednesday night, so that will be a chunk of time I can use to get a foothold on this work.
I’m going to get a little exercise today and sunshine, too. It’s all about balance.
