Dealing with it

I'm tired and I have no one to blame for it but myself. My schedule was ideal when I moved jobs from a law firm to my present employment. I worked from 9am to 6pm, rarely had to take work home with me, and kept weekends sacred. But since deciding, knowingly and voluntarily, to go back to school, my days have become more complicated.

I somehow still manage. I show up early so I can read and work on my assignments before clocking in on weekdays. Lately, I've also been studying on half of my weekends. So that's half-off my time originally spent with the boys. I don't know yet if I'm doing well in school. We've had one midterm exam so far and that turned out okay.

There's just no denying that further adjustments have to be made now. While Pao and Malik are watching TV, I have to be scrunched up in a corner of our room reading and solving exercises. Last weekend, I decided to just embrace the situation and make the most out of it. Studying in UP is, after all, a privilege. I owe it to taxpaying citizens to take this opportunity seriously. Naks. So anyway, 6 years since I last used a study table, I now have my very own "workspace" at home -

Waha. I basically just cleared out 1/4 of our desk and took out some of Malik's puzzle mats so I can use a folding chair. Talk about modest. It kinda looks pathethic no? Haha But it will do.

By the way, we got a couple of these folding chairs from a local department store, originally for when we have get-togethers at home. I didn't know they were from Ikea until I got around to setting up my study corner.

But wait, does Ikea have their furniture manufactured in China?
