I know that this is going to be one of the hardest years of my life. My wife just had a baby and I am working on my dissertation. It will be hard for me to devote as much time to my family as they deserve and it will be hard for me to spend as much time in my studies as I should.
I always thought that I would be finished with my thesis before we started having children, but sometimes things happen that are beyond your control. I would not trade in my baby son for anything, but I am just saying that the timing could have been better. I wish I could devote more time to him than I have been able to.
On top of all that, I have been spending a small mount of time writing custom term papers, in hopes of earning a little bit of extra income to help with the added expense of adding a child to the family. We have been doing alright and I know that we will get through this, but I feel as though I have no time for me and if I did, I would just spend it sleeping.
