She is Jamaican. I was wondering how easy it would be easy for others to parse.

Everyone's complaining about all of the school work they have lined up but I wish I had that to work on. If I'm lucky I won't get to school until next year September. At 27. And I would have to start from scratch instead of graduating had I stayed in The Bahamas.

Yeah, reading your post Soliel, I should be glad of the opportunity to study, but I just cannot wait for it to be over. I'm struggling to concentrate on anything (no longer reading and I even fall asleep watching TV which I never used to). I'm just so tired of it all. But why would I quit after the years of struggle and heartache? What the heck would I be doing with myself if I wasn't here? Not concentrating on nothing instead of not concentrating on my studies?

My head is all over the place and I have no chances left. I was lucky to be cleared to continue on the course by occupational therapists, but it has kinda made me scared to tell anyone I'm struggling again. *sigh*

For pete sake..if one more celebrity poses naked while they are pregnant... IDK..it just seem so darn lame anymore. Jessica Simpson is the latest..on the cover of Elle magazine super airbrushed..butt naked and holding her breasts... FAIL.

All of this is how I feel now. I was 2 years into my 4 year degree but I wasn't happy doing it even though I was almost done. I can here to do what makes me happy but I'm still struggling with French and with only 4 more months left I have no clue as to what I want to do after July. I could try to be an au pair again but I can't live on pocket change and I'm not sure that at 27 I should be doing that even though I want to stay in France. Now I'm feeling like quitting was a mistake and even though I wasn't happy teaching it would have at least given me a degree. I would have been finished June next year or the end of 2013 had I stayed at home, but to be honest I'm happier here than I ever was in the Bahamas. I only hate "not concentrating on nothing" like you said and I wish I was working on some kind of credited courses.

My professor said today that she would never go back to college, as a student. I wouldn't either. I should of stuck with being a german major when I was a freshman. Science is for the birds.

speaking of the suckiness of school, I've had to skip my class because my trifling printer won't print my project but now it prints. Jesus be a spring break. I have too much work this week. Why do teachers insist on giving you a buttload of crap all at the same time?

Last night a ceiling light crashed to the floor for no apparent reason. At first I was like eh, but then I started thinking about the what ifs and one was the fact that it is right near my bathroom, and I walk in its path. I stayed up hours, totally creeped out about how close I was to a freak accident. This morning I woke up with a pounding headache.

Just when the headache started to subside, I dropped my spanking brand new iphone on the ground. Now I feel like my head is going to explode I am such a mess today.

I know a lot of folks feel that way but I love research. I love school. Maybe thats why I've been doing this for so long..

Yet another missed opportunity to check some fools.

So I'm at work right now and the most racist thing (TODAY) just happened and I'm so heated right now.

I work in a department at my school that handles a lot of cash. Sometimes people come in to retrieve a lot of cash and today was one of those days. A white guy comes in and needs to get $8000 cash for his department. I go and get it, count it to him, and then I hand it to him. As I'm handing it to him, he says "You're not gonna call your friends to come jump me are you?". Then he laughs. Initially, for a split second, I chuckled because it's common for customers to try to chat it up with me and I don't really be listening. But the moment I realized what he said I felt overcome with emotion. I was shocked. Why did he say that to me? Would he have said that to my white co-workers? And why'd he think that was okay to say that to me?

So now, at the job that I hate, as I sit here I feel like a fool and I feel so disrespected. I'm just stewing in fury. Once again. But I can't show anything. I have to keep it inside. Because if I go off and say what I feel, a lot repressed stuff will come out. Who will listen to me anyway? I feel like a fool because I didn't check his punk a$$ like I should have. In that moment, and many other moments, I feel an intense inner struggle. Should I be "that" black person who takes offense to everything and "plays the race card"? I mean, maybe I'm overreacting. But then again, I know how I feel.

You're right. I know in the long run I would HATE the fact that I quit, especially as this is what I want to do. Just struggling with my mental health alongside studying isn't ideal for me, and with my friends long graduated I feel very alone. The universal advice is just do your best, but I know I'm not doing anywhere near my best because I can barely concentrate and have no motivation because I can't think positively about the future. Anyway, I've had a good cry which I haven't been able to do for weeks (sounds great, but is actually awful) and I'm at my desk instead of my bed (I live in my bed and I know that's not good). I WILL get these essays and posters done, then I will get back to my dissertation and once that's done, it'll be a massive weight off my shoulders. All I have to do is work really hard for the next 6 months, especially the next 4 weeks - it's really not difficult. I have to do this. I have to.

Anyone who sees me posting a lot in here over the next few weeks, feel free to shame me by asking how much work I've done that day and tell me off if the answer is 'nothing'. *sigh*

I like researching and learning for learning sake. I hate being assessed on what I've researched and learnt, because the pressure or recalling the information makes me lose interest in what I'm reading and makes it less likely to stick in my head.

One of my old professors went to a therapist for help during his dissertation and he said it really helped him out a lot with coping with the stress and inferiority he felt every time he delivered a chapter to his adviser and it wasn't good enough. Maybe that would help you, if you're willing. He got his doctorate at 30 but like you all of my peers have graduated years ago, and the ones who are my age who went back to school later are graduating now or in another year or 2. I wish I was able to work on an MA now, but most of all I wish I was happy.

And I can't judge you for staying in bed because when I'm not with the kids I'm in my bed either eating myself fat or lying in the fetal position.
