Insecure Writer's Support Group!

I've been quite behind on doing these posts, which leads directly into my topic this month.

Sometimes I feel like I'm wearing too many hats.

This semester has been pretty tough - I've actually been challenged a bit in classes, leading to an excess in papers that need to be written, pretend departments that had to be created, etc.  I haven't really had time to at all...this semester.  Any free time I've had has gone to writing, since it seems to be the only thing that has kept me sane these past few months.

I know I'm not wearing nearly as many hats as some of you (who are, perhaps, employed full-time, have children and/or a significant other, and wear other hats that I can't think of at the moment), but I'm struggling with the three hats that I have right now, and I'm not really sure how to fix it.

I can't give up any of my three.

I'm here to get my Masters, so I can't really give up grad school (not that I would want to).
My awesome assistantship covers my tuition and gives me a decent stipend to live off of every month (and I would never give that up).
And then there's writing.  Well, if you want to know how much I love writing and will never stop, just read some of my random posts!

So my question, IWSG friends, is how to you manage with all the hats?  Is there some secret trick that I have not yet mastered?


  1. Life is a balancing act, isn't it? I don't know... I never have enough time for everything I want to do. I try to prioritize, and if I don't specifically make time for something, it usually doesn't happen!

    1. haha yeah, I'm still learning how to properly balance things...this semester just got a little away from me, but next semester I am quite optimistic about managing all of my hats :P
