was researching massage therapy and schools today.
and ran across amta. they have a short test to see how much stress you have.
I shouldn't be amused at my score.

"Your Value is: 328
Your stress level is HIGH, if it continues you may want to seek help from a professional"

Okay. Show of hands. Who hasn't figured this out yet?



Also.
Perhaps you all remember moving at some point or another.
But I'm having trouble figuring out if this is normal or not.
700 mile move. (3 round trips). Packing/unpacking on my own. New job. Jaw pain.
Is it completely normal for me to be sleeping 4 hours when i get home, waking up for 3 and going back to sleep for another 6? I'm just insanely tired. I can barely stay awake and I'm wondering if I'm ill or of it's normal to be drained as hell. *L*

I loves me some sleep. Yerp.

I'd hesitate to spend the money to go to massage therapy school. As much as it costs to do, there are a lot of other kinds of education that are much more likely to land you a job that pays. The market is so flooded with massage therapists these days who barely scratch out a living that it's not even funny.

As for the sleep thing, if you were deprived for a while in the months past, this is your body struggling to catch back up. I went through a period like that when I went to college the first time.

Also, get a damn mouthguard for that grinding/clenching. 150 bucks to prevent constant headaches is worth it.

Hell, I'm not surprised you're tired and your sleep schedule is wonky. Think how much of a major life change you've made recently...no wonder you're tryin to catch up on rest. I know how fried I'd get just moving down to school and back, and it's not even in the same league as your doings. Plus, I bet the heat isn't helping...hotness seems to make sleepiness...

the heat....is annoying. and it definitely contributes to the sleepy.
it goes all oven-mode during the day so when everyone gets home...the cincinnati style air conditioning isn't keeping up. what is it with northerners? i understand that it's normally cold and you don't need your central air and heating but...c'mon! if everyone runs their a/c during the summer...and opens the doors all at once we could all contribute! :D
