    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...

    Life has handed me a lot of lemons this year.

    While I am trying my best to make lemonade, I feel lately all I have done is walk around holding this heavy bag of lemons. Between unwanted health complications, excessive legal issues, family/relationship problems and trying my best to keep my scholarship at school... When do...

    I wish I could run away to a tropical island

    and never look back at my old life. No school, homework, drama. I'd take my best friend with me and we would have a blast. Being lazy in the sun all day, singing by a campfire every night. Yet here I am, stressing over homework. Close to a breakdown even though I just had...

    It's Life Everybody experiences times

    when nothing seems to go right. It's life. The way it is. Usually you take it in stride. Knowing time will move on; things will get better. Nothing is destined to stay as it is. No matter how long things are bleak or crumbling down everywhere. As the song says, you know...

    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 have been letting things

    that are beyond my control take over my life and I need to just let go of some of this stress so that's what I'm going to attempt to do now. It's not healthy and my body is unhappy about the stress so I just have to find a way to make it less consuming.

    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.
