This October is going to be the busiest month of my life so far. With testing, school, family, and work, I have a lot going on and it's been difficult to stay on top of everything. I constantly have to think about the week ahead and work ahead on my school work so that I don't fall behind. I also have a lot of events (mostly for black belt testing), which are all very exciting and very stressful. I'm doing much better so far this year at managing my stress and still getting everything I need to do done. It's really helpful to have a supportive team. For example, I have to take the PSAT test on the same morning as grading day, so to accommodate this, KJN Jeremy set up a make-up testing for me the weekend before and the advanced degree team decided to join me so I wouldn't have to test alone. It's very special to have an awesome team of people who are willing to rearrange their schedules for me like that.
