Two Months. It has been TWO MONTHS since I wrote a blog post. My apologies to those who follow my blog. I really kicked this blog to the curb but I’M BACK and will TRY to write as much as I can. I have repeatedly stated this in my blog posts: A Storm of Words is a space for me to write and express myself freely. Maybe you can get something out of these posts.
Therefore, WHY have I not written anything in two months? Let’s talk about stress. I usually know how to deal with stress because I feel that so far in my life, I’ve only had to deal with healthy doses of stress that keep me productive. Yeah, my stress has been a bit out of control lately which has led me to anxiety. However, I am managing both of them. I have a thesis which at first stressed me out like hell since I couldn’t find the right topic (thank God I have found the perfect topic for me). I have my student organization, Insite, which keeps me busy. All. The. Time. But I love it and I love what we do. And of course, being an English student is busy because we have so much reading to do… it’s too much. And I’m behind.
I knew from the start that this year was going to crush me. I knew that I was going to have a lot on my plate. And for a moment, I was not capable of managing my time. However, I’m working on myself and trying not to be too hard on myself. The anxiety I feel when it comes to me pressuring myself gets out of hand sometimes which is why I know I need to give myself a breather. And this helps me deal with my stress. I take it easy.
At the end of the day, I tell myself: I’ve made it this far. Goddamnit I can take whatever gets thrown at me. And I know I can.
This blog is not meant to be about me. I don’t want it to be. However, I feel the need to write about certain personal stuff. You can read this and judge me if you want. I won’t know and quite frankly, I don’t care. Whatever I write here, on the Internet, is public. Writing about these things might make you relate to what I’m going through though. I felt like whatever I was feeling was just me. But we all go through this. Stress. Anxiety. Falling behind. Over thinking. Time management. And everyone is capable of over coming these things. It’s just the challenges we face as students. We will make it to the finish line.
Therefore, HANG IN THERE and speak up about your problems. Find an ear that’s willing to listen. And keep an eye out for my posts. Weekly.
