    I'm so tired.. I'm tired of being alone.

    Tired of being backstabbed. Tired of being thrown. Tired of being a nobody. Tired of living! I'm physically, emotionally and mentally tired about everything!

    Every single day this week has been horrible.

    I get up at 6:30, drive to university with two hours of traffic. When I finally get there, I have so much work and lectures that I forget to eat or drink. I have to practically babysit my group for this task we are set because they aren't doing their work. I'm stressing over...

    I'm going through a stretch of no sleep,

    partly because I stopped a medication, and partly because a friend brought bed bugs to my car/house. Sorry I'm not writing more friends I just can barely drag myself along. I'll be back to full strength soon however as I always seem to come back strong. Thanks for understanding...
