Grow Up, Already!

I’ve noticed a theme in my last few sporadic posts, and it makes me sound like a broken record. “Okay, Jenna, we get it, you’ve had a lot on your plate lately!” Honestly, I haven’t posted in a while because I know it’s going to contain a sentence or six about me being stressed and overwhelmed, and I haaaate writing about that. So this is the last one, I swear.
I want to extend a question to whoever is reading this: How do you find the time and energy to accomplish everything? It was beyond easy when all I was doing was going to school and doing the occasional photo shoot. I had time to browse Craftgawker in the morning, fulfill crochet orders at lightning speed, and still have time left over to worry about what trouble I’d be getting myself into on the weekend. I’d be able to do everything I needed with minimal stress.
Now I’ve taken on a part time job at the library, a huge workload for school, a giant crochet order (which I’m almost finished with! Applaud me, please), all while trying to balance time with my amazing friends, boyfriend and family. I’m finding the little things that kept me amused before are taking a back seat for now. I used to take for granted the days when I had no obligations to force me away from the house; now I’m craving a half day when I can lounge around with some hot tea in my mug adorning my coffee mug cozy and a book. Today is one of those days which I’m very excited about! Until I have to go to class this evening. I know I only have a little bit of school left and once that’s over have more time to focus on a career and myself. But for now it’s my time to be angsty and complain about the stresses of growing up.
Anyway, I extend the question one more time: How do you find/make time for all of your obligations? It can’t be any big secret!
