Things may be looking up for me on the school front. My grades have been improving, I have mostly A's and B's now, with the exception of the D in bio, which I hope to change soon. It's funny what a little bit of actual effort can do to your grades. Sure, my social life isn't as glamorous as it was a few months ago, but my parents are pleased, and I have a shot at a better future.
I'm feeling a bit...pressured...at the moment. Seems like I've been trying to balance too many things at once, and I now realize I have bitten off more than I can chew. What with school, chores, homework, martial arts, the band, money...I simply don't have time to take a breather anymore, and I think it may be negatively affecting me. The band is my biggest concern at the moment. I find myself running out of time when it comes to practicing and preparing, and it seems that the less practice time I have, the more abundant and challenging my material becomes. This all becomes too overwhelming, especially at my current skill level. I realize I have expectations to hold, but I cannot meet them, no matter how hard I try. There is a limit, and I have reached it. And to be honest, the band is not the most important thing in my life, and in my humble opinion, it shouldn't be. Since elementary school, this is the first time I have ever done this well in an academic setting, and at this point I cannot afford to lose it. Sorry if you guys feel offended, short-changed, or that I am not trying hard enough. I am not blessed with abundant free time at the moment.
