1. When I am at work, I am required to make rounds of my building every few hours. That's all well and good, but I haven't figured out a way to do it efficiently (without much backtracking) and it's driving me nuts. Maybe there isn't really a way to do it, but maybe you guys have suggestions.
Under the cut is an awesome picture of the layout of my building. The sections with the red X's are stairs, and I have to start and end at the lounge/office.( Collapse )
The way I do it right now is office, all first floor rooms, up the stairs at the end of the hall, all 2nd floor, up the stairs at the high end, all 3rd floor, up the stairs at the low end, all 4th floor, back down 4th high, up the middle staircase, all of 5th floor, then back down the stairs at the low end, up the first floor rooms to the office again.
I feel like there should really be a better way to do this!
2. Is there anybody here who is just not cut out for academia? I don't mean that you can't afford college or haven't had an opportunity to go, but that you have tried and simply can't DO it. How/why did you decide to quit? What is the highest level you've completed? What kind of job have you had?
I'm plenty smart enough, but I have severe anxiety and I am honestly wondering if I am ever going to graduate because I am struggling with this so much. Being in school makes me miserable, but when I'm not in school I am much more comfortable.
3. Do you think it is unrealistic for me to hope to open my own business a few years down the road even if I am unable to complete my bachelor's degree?
