Only you fellow students would understand the predicament I have somehow managed to place myself in.
Jeesh. I can't believe I let this happen.
I just finished up my first semester of clinicals and was treated to the most stressful, demanding semester I have ever experienced in my life.
Near the end of the semester my darling boyfriend FINALLY proposed to me (picked out a winner of a ring too!). So, in my bliss, I agreed to go looking at new housing developments with him. He really wanted to see this new "planned community" being built near our house. Does anyone see where this is headed?...
My totally questioning, fact processing, never-rush-into-a-decision fiance went GA-GA over the place and wants to buy---now! My entire vacation was consumed with this neighborhood and houses and lots and such. I woke up this morning realizing my break is over in a few days and suddenly realized that "The Stress" will be making a repeat appearance in my life at that time. My delusional love-cloud just dissipated.
I found out that he talked to the finance guy, the builder's agent and a real-estate agent to sell our home---today! Now, I take blame. I agreed to it, but didn't factor in the school stress. Now I, who cleaned the house a total of 3 times last semester, will be building a house, going through med-surg, pharm, nutrition and history and will be needing to keep the place in "queen elizabeth" condition in order to sell. I can't tell him I've changed my mind --- we talked A LOT and he doesn't respect people who beg off of decisions. I don't want to start our marriage with him feeling that way.
So I pose 2 questions to y'all: 1) Do I have a right to be freaking out? and 2) Any tips on time/stress management out there?
Sorry the post is so long.
Hugs to y'all:kiss
