I posted a couple of weeks ago about cutting back on my blogging time, as I have a course I'm trying to finish before May 31st. Well, I'm having a really, really hard time getting through it. The amount of work that has to be done between now and then is almost impossible - but I promised myself I would push through and get it done. However, I'm really struggling with the motivation factor. Since I no longer plan on doing my Masters (at least not any time soon), my motivation to get this course done is almost non-existant. To add to the lack of motivation, I re-read the university's policy on course-retakes, and discovered that I can, in fact, withdrawl at this point and simply re-register if and when I decide to pursue my Masters. The trouble is, this is my 2nd time registering for the course (the first time I foolishly thought that 4 weeks after having a baby, while also having a 2-year-old, and being in the midst of renovating our home was a really, really good time register for a course). So I have now paid for the course TWICE (at over $600.00 each time). I know it's a huge waste of money and time to not finish. But at the same time, all I want to do is sew and knit and bake and play with my kids - all the stuff that gives me the warm and fuzzies.
I need some advice! What would you do if you were in my shoes? Would you put all of your non-necessary homemaking activities on hold and spend every available minute getting this done? It would only be a 3-week sacrifice, of getting up early every morning, and spending every naptime and every evening working on it. I know I can do just about anything for 3 weeks! Or would you say forget it, and let it go? I must say, that's the most appealing option to me right now. Although it would feel really, really good to get it done.
