    I am so stressed out.

    Literally everything is stressing me out in my life. Mostly schooling. They are making me move out of my dorm into another person's dorm because of "consolidating". There are only 11 people that don't have roommates. No wonder no one ever wants to stay here. The food sucks...

    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.
