I was just telling some co-werkers about how Jake is almost finished with school and we're beginning to look into our future and wonder what life will be like this May. Jake will be graduating, we'll be adding a baby to our family, and we'll be on the job hunt for a nursing position for Jake during my maternity leave. It's hard to believe all of the stuff that will be happening at once some times, but so exciting!
My co-werker said it sounds like Jake and I have 'senioritis', a terms that describes the decreased motivation toward studies displayed by students who are nearing the end of their school careers. This is definitely starting to become more true in some ways for me at werk. I am at a point with a lot of my projects where I need to be mapping out a plan for February/March/April, so that I can feel as though I'm going on maternity leave without too much hanging in the balance.
Just when I feel the motivation decreasing is when I need to put a plan in place to get me through the next few months without losing focus. What's that cheesy quote? "...if you fail to plan, you plan to fail!"
