    Constantly. School is just crazy.

    I can't handle it all. I always manage to get it all done, but the feeling of failure overwhelms me.

    I've made decisions in my life

    that some family members have taken exception to. I'm so overwhelmed by rejection and arguments ..... Why is one generation so accepting of those who identify with LBGTQI and yet others will slam the door in your face?

    I'm in my early twenties.

    Stress has been my companion for years. When I was a young kid I moved abroad with my parents and when finally going to school with all of the kids who were locals - that's pretty much the moment when I became a loner. Or started to feel like one. So my social life has never...

    Finally finished my essay,

    climbing into bed at 1:45am. Probably should've finished my homework for other classes but I figured I better try to get a couple of hours of sleep before I have to wake up for school at 5:00am. Graduation needs to hurry up before I lose my mind!

    I am under so much stress

    and it's killing me. stress from lack of a place to live, "family", lack of money, everyone around me, ect. I can't take too much more of this. I bust my back so that I can make a better future for myself, but it doesn't seem to get me anywhere. here come the migraines.

    Everything is piling on top of everything else

    and the pointless tasks that need done are shouting in my ear. I have so much more important things to take care of than all of this. But of course, I suppose I'm the only one that considers them important.

    Tonight I'm going to eat

    and drink with my friends. I'm going to enjoy tonight and ignore all the stress I've been feeling. I'm going to ignore my money problems, my self esteem issues, my work stresses all for one night. I hope I can actually do it.
