    Things keep getting worse.

    But hey. They have to get worse before they get better, right? Yeah, I don't believe that bullshit lie either.

    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.

    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?

    Exam week is next week,

    and although I started studying ahead of time I still feel the stress building right now. Last year exam week was awful and I imagine this one will be worse. I won't be getting much sleep these next few days.

    I am so, so stressed out.

    I want to burst my brains and crush it up. I have literally been crying everyday for months and I want to scream and stab and torture people. I want to scratch my eyes out and I just. want. everything. to. stop. :-(

    Do you ever wake up in the morning,

    make your partner their coffee and a good breakfast, for them to sit down and start to argue with you... About pointless things. Then twist things around, and cause unnecessary stress. All the while you're thinking, "why did I just spend my time making your morning as good as I...

    I'm trying to create a vent-like-net

    for industrial chimneys made of moss. I'm hoping it will trap the CO2 before it fumes out of the chimney. This will prevent excess CO2 from escaping into the air, which greatly damages the Earth by doing so. However, I need to measure how much CO2 is trapped in the moss. Does...

    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...

    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!
