So Much Stuff
I get incredibly stressed over the smallest things and, over time, it really does start effecting my performance, not only in school, but at work and my personal life. It is not that I have a whole lot on my plate, but apparently even the smallest morsel is enough to give me a tummy ache. Take this week for example. On my calendar inside my planner I had, what seemed to be, a relatively open week. However, it is the assignments ahead that are giving me trouble. I have a research assignment in Psych that I must complete at the end of next month. I also have to contact my advisor and figure out my schedule for next semester. It is really the slightest things that mess with my head and, in the end, my mental and physical health pay for it. I just want to scream at the top of my lungs. I find that venting is a really good way to get rid of stress. According to today's history lesson, Freud gave us psychoanalysis, which is awesome because I find that talking my problems out really helps me relax. Especially on these days that I just do not feel my greatest. When I saw that we would be presenting our blogs later on, I had a small explosion go off in my head. I am not afraid of standing up in front of people and talking (I used to be in a choir and had solos quite a few times), but these blog entries are somewhat personal to me. They are my babies. They come from my mind and they are mine. Maybe I need to psychoanalyze myself one of these days...
