Why do I take on so much? I decided to return to school for my 3rd degree in my 50’s and rather than take 3 classes per semester, I am taking 5. On top of that, I work full-time in education and I own a freelance design business which I have current clients and deadlines to meet. I sleep 2 -4 hours most nights due to excessive homework), I am always tired and social life? Non-existent. Why do I do this to myself?
