My Memory

sucks when I'm stressed. Over the past 3 months, I have forgotten my office keys at home 4 times and had to have the college police unlock my office door for me. Twice I forgot and left my cell phone somewhere on campus and the college police had to bring it to me. They now know me.

On my last post on my blog, I put that my boss gave me only 7 days to write the book and at the end of 7 days, I turned everything over to her unfinished. I totally forgot that because I didn't finish the book in 7 days, she gave me a 2 week extension. However, she also increased the number of pages that she wanted me to write from about 100 pages to 300 pages. So it was at the end of 3 weeks, that I turned everything over to her unfinished. I guess I should be grateful for the extra 2 weeks. It allowed me time to write about 80 pages.

So, what have I been doing to deal with my stress? I have started doing yoga. I am doing it everyday for about 30 minutes. I have also started listening to music more often. I am also spending less time on facebook. It was too painful to read about the jobs that my friends are getting and the houses that they are buying and the trips that they take. It's amazing how much these three simple things have helped me. That's all for now.
