Last week was rough, you guys.
Dissociation, keeping the peace, and desperate for winter break.
Struggling to stay motivated, and feeling jealous of our former selves.
Finals are turning my brain into a black hole.
Look at yourself and say, “I’m ready to slay this monster.”
Speaking to our past, present, and future selves.
Just a tiny bit STRESSED.
Steps I take to get out of my head and experience the world.
Exam pressure, relationship pressure, so much pressure.
It might not be so bad after all.
