Finals Week Stress Has Got Me Like Whoa

Posted December 11, 2017 By kmarrs

I have my final paper due Thursday at midnight.  And my presentation due Tuesday evening.  And I’m super stressed out.

But I’m taking Tuesday off of work so that I can work on it all night tonight.  Which is the plan.  Right after I fix a couple of broken things on my site.  Which I know, I need to stop dicking around.  But this is how I destress and get my brain ready to focus.  So after this test post I’ll buckle down and get to work.

After this, so like in 3 days, I’ll be out of school for something like 8 weeks.  And I’m planning to spend those 8 weeks reading all the things!

I also have exciting news for all of you!  So expect me back after finals week with an update.  I do hope to post more.  I need to get back to writing.  And if I can get in the habit while out of school, well, I’ll already be in the habit when in school.  They don’t all have to be massively long.

But yes, exciting news coming to you soon!

In the meantime I just need to deal with this stress.

Also, hopefully, I fixed the thing.  *crosses fingers*

Like I went to bed last “night” at 5 AM and was up by 1 PM fully rested.

On work nights I no longer have to be asleep by 10PM in order to be up by 9AM, and dragging.  If I’m still awake at 11 or even midnight, I’m mostly ok.

I’m still very much a spoonie, and always will be.  I still have fibro to contend with.  Even if I’m in complete remission from my mental health issues, the full long list, fibro is an energy sap.  But like I’m doing better.

This is a huge sign I’m doing better.

Also, I’m reading for fun again.  Even though I’m still in classes.  See if I spend less time hiding from my depression on tumblr, I can find the time to read.

But like for so long, as much as I love books, I couldn’t find the interest in reading.  That’s how I knew it was time to change my anti-depressant, btw.  That was many many many months ago.  But it took awhile to climb out of the hole I was in.  Stress from school doesn’t help.

So in my down time, my main hobby was depression scrolling Tumblr.

I still spend a lot of time on this site.  But now it’s mostly to talk to my many friends.  That’s not depression.  That’s living.
