8 Things I Need Less Of

It's *8Things Thursday again! This week it is 8 things I need less of. It ties in with the Do Less Revolution going on.
Here are my 8 things...

1. Stress
2. Commitments
3. Homework
4. Headaches
5. Self Doubt
6. Cold Weather & Rain
7. Worry
8. Sickness

Can you tell that all of these are connected? I am stressed because I have too many commitments and too much homework. The stress causes the headaches. I'm still sick from when I woke up with that cold on Sunday, and it won't go away because of the cold & rain! The self doubt... well that's normal, and so is the worry. I mean, I am graduating in 3 weeks!

I'm just not having a very good day. I don't mean to sound like a pessimist, but the next few days don't look like they'll be any better either.


  1. Tori,

    My husband and I were just talking about how demanding school is (High School and College), and how the institutions send really bad messages re: busyness. The main message in college often seems to be "you're important and doing well if you are overbooked. If it's easy, you aren't doing it right." I'm proud of you for joining the DO LESS Revolution and finding another way. Blowing the "bullshit bullhorn" on over committment now will serve you so well as you move thru life. Way to go!

  2. Honey. I am with you on the other side of the coin... Think of it this way. You might have 4 essays to write but I have 90 to read :)And I don't even assign as much work as other teachers do. LOL.

    I agree with Rachelle re: pointless busy-ness! :)
