Ok guys, I'm currently experiencing more stress than ever before. I'm truly a type-b personality, so this is somewhat alien to me. Usually I just don't think about things too much and I plod along, getting them done one at a time. This term, I have been asked to multi-task as never before. Five classes; three of them art (yes, I know, art! Which just means more WORK). I've also finally decided to apply for my masters in teaching (MAT), which at my university is reputed to be a fairly competitive program. The deadline for application is February 15; before then I have to take two standardized tests (CBEST and Praxis II) and put in 30 hours of volunteering with youth. At this point I may or may not need to take either the GRE or the Miller Analogies Test, either way it would probably be a good idea (my GPA isn't wonderful - just a little over a 3.0, and that's IF we're talking overall, including my transfer credits). I'm starting to think the whole attempt is insane, but I've succeeded fairly well in poorly-thought-out missions of insanity before. I really want to be a teacher, more than anything.
So, besides simply venting to people I know will understand, I do actually have a question. How do you guys deal with stress? I've done everything I know - made my plans (in writing), eat right, exercise, meditate and pray. What helps you?
