There’s been so much weight loss talk around these parts that I’m not sure I’ve even told you that my first final exam is tonight. It’s my Finance exam. It’s going to be pretty darn hard. I was up pretty late last night and have quite a bit more work to do today to try to prepare.
Exam time is always very stressful. (Midterms are the worst but finals are still quite intense.) As a mature student, it’s hard to keep all of the regular life responsibilities going while getting the study hours in. Luckily for me Brad has been helping a tonne in the last week. All I’ve had to worry about is training and studying.
Something he’s told me recently is to start asking for exactly HOW he can help. See, when I help him, or other people, I just kind of plough through and start offering help in a billion different ways. I don’t ever think to ask of what I need or how I need it, I just run around screaming “I need HELP!!!!!!!!!!!”
But this time around I’ve been making specific requests:
- Can you go grocery shopping?
- Can you make me dinner?
- Can you water the plants?
… pretty please with a cherry on top
He’s going to kill me for getting mushy on here (apparently he has a “rep” to protect) but I love and appreciate him so much. I can’t even tell you how supportive he is. We’ve been through a lot in the last two years since I went back to school and he deals with all of it, just for me.
Okay okay that’s enough, I’m a dead woman
I’m fuelling up on two peaches + greek yogurt + coffee before I hit the books again.
Do you ask for help when you need it? HOW do you ask for help?
