Why am I doing this to myself?

I am having one of those mornings when I am questioning my decision to go to uni. I have no idea what is going on with the stats unit yet I completely love the water earth science one (so far, hydrology yet to come).
My feelings about the stats are making everything else fade as the stupid pressure, anger, despair, frustration that I feel are overwhelming my clarity so I don't want to read any of my other subject.
This one subject puts at risk all the other parts that make up a degree, it's a core unit, so there's no skipping it.
Maybe I have developed my procrastination skills to a new level..here I am..moaning and dribbling on my blog. Woe is me, 'n' all, but, hey, I am trying to learn this stuff so I can hopefully make a difference in keeping this planet of ours habitable.
I get frustrated because its so important to me that I can understand and not have to repeat a semester doing the same boring thing again.
I have to learn to love the numbers.

I feel for you Vicki, as another mature ager I'm not formally studying now, but determined to continue my life as a challenge. So as far as I'm concerned you are welcome to have a moan and dribble on your blog any time you feel like it.

I hope that things went well for you in your stats course. There are always a few classes, on your way to getting a degree, that you have to push through. Sometimes, the other classes, and the idea of what you can do with your finished degree, are some compensation.
