I cannot swim. I took swimming lessons for many years during my childhood but I never made a real effort and, thus, can only keep myself afloat through doggie-paddling.
I have been putting in a lot of time and energy into school and I'm barely managing to keep my head above water. I cannot, for the life of me, get caught up or even ahead with my work. I'm beyond exhausted and feeling completely overwhelmed. I do not know how I'm going to survive the rest of the school year. All my hard work is not paying off - I'm still unable to swim. I'm still just flapping my arms and legs around, hoping I don't sink.
Doggie-paddling sucks. I cannot wait for the long weekend.
