As I drew circles, cut, ironed, pinned and sewed I felt better than I have in a long time. This made me question the recent University study I have taken on. I have thought about and talked about starting doctoral study for the last few years and finally this year committed to it. It is interesting and I enjoy the reading, but it takes up all my non-school time and given my school days are 10 - 14 hours I have done a 50 - 60 hour week by Friday night, so it's taking up my weekends and holidays. I now always feel like I should be doing University work. Sewing and yoga have gone out the window and they are the things that I find joy in and so are probably psychologically good for me. I came to the conclusion yesterday that I might quit my University study. I have never quit anything in my life, but I don't want to live like this for the five plus years it will take me to complete the qualification. I want to spend my Christmas holidays hanging out with my niece and nephew and not working on the next draft of my lit review. I will sit on that decision for a week or two, but I am pretty sure my mind is made up.
