Going CRAZY Here!!!

I've been spending so much time in front of this computer my ass hurts!!! I know it's not funny, but it is, in a way.
I am so sick of sitting here, I feel like I am not getting anything accomplished. I keep on doing the same thing over and over, if the professors had clearly stated what they wanted in the beginning, like any good instructor would. I don't think I would be on the verge of tears, and screaming at everyone who asks me a question.
It's that bad. I feel like I can't answer anything. Like I can't have another thought interrupt my train of thought when it comes to writing out these lesson plans. I know that some of you may be wondering why I am finding it so difficult, well it's a long story.
As you know I am a junior, and one of the classes I am in is an integrated curriculum course, which means I have 3 professors for the course, and I only receive one grade. I get 3x's the work for no perks, so to speak.
I take my education seriously, I have been on the Dean's List since my first semester. I just received my Associate's Degree and I only have 2 semesters to go after this. However, the professor's I have this semester are making things unbearable. I am not the only one that feels this way, but like always I do have the biggest mouth so I am the onlyone they hear.
They want us to write 6 lesson plans and hand them in by Thursday. In previous semesters they have given workshops, to teach the class how to write the lesson plan according to their criteria. For some assinine reason they decided to cancel the three workshops so we could do our observation hours, now for the most part none of us know how to write a lesson plan accrding to their standards, and all we have to base our knowledge on is samples from last year. BUT WAIT!!! they've changed some of the elements!
So I am basically shooting balls in a basket in the dark, hoping I get them in.

I ask questions, and I'm told to go ask someone else. No one wants to do their job, they just want to keep cancelling classes and getting paid for it.

AHHHH! I just needed to vent.

On a brighter note I went to the gym today, I'm telling you I feel great, but the scale is not budging. How annoying is that? Well actually it moved 3 ounces since last week, lol. I 'll get it together somehow, at least now I know what I have to do in order to maintain my weight, and eat the way I want on the weekends. LOL.

I'll give you my sister in law's email address. She has her doctorate in education and teaches at local college. Maybe that will help!

I'm so sorry that you are so frustrated. I know how well you want to do, and in the end....I know you will. But still, the stress in getting there when you don't know what they want is so hard. I'll be sending you good thoughts.
Good for you that you made it to the gym..that will help with your stress as well as your weight. Don't worry about the scale Eva, you are doing what is good and it feels right.....just keep on keeping on!

Love to you...
