Stress is said to be responsible for more than half of the 550,000,000 workdays lost annually because of absenteeism
In general, girls report far more school-related stress than do boys. They believe that to be successful, they have to be extraordinary in every area of their lives- academic, social, extracurricular, and appearance
so stressed about college, driving, and my future. Where do i start?? D: Oh yeah, hella gov homework to do in 3 days too. Then I get to finish 39239123 drawings for Art on Sunday NIGHT. funnn
the end has no end
started out pretty rocky … family feud + stress, etc
I did quite a bit of cooking and almost everything turned out marvelously, except for the one ‘fail’. I made some garlic stuffed mushrooms (winner by far, there isn’t a single one left( I declared them to be an orgasm on a plate(I intend to make more). I also made a roasted egglant and red bell pepper salad, it was sort of greek/mediterranean (wet not leafy salad) it was quite tasty, but mother and I think it is more of a summer salad. I also made mashed sweet potatos with banana and honey with a pecan and brown sugar glaze. My ‘fail’ was the pumpkin pecan cheesecake, which tasted okay except it got too moist so it was kind of sloppy and on top of that the glaze wasn’t thick enough. Hopefully, if I try it again i can alter a few things and it may turn out better.
Aside from those few things that I personally cooked, we had candied yams, stuffing, cranberry sauce, buns, pumpkin pie, regular turkey & grazy ( which I don’t eat), and tofurky with roasted potatoes, onions, stuffing and gravy.
I feel like I may be forgetting something obvious …. but the food was delicious despite the stress, and my brother’s, albeit usual, poor behavior.
I hope everyone had a good thanksgiving without too much fighting.
I need to figure out a way to get lots of money… and fast.
Did you know if you are hurt and unable to work there is no compensation until you are healed and a civil suit is filed and resolved, which will take years.
I’m simply supposed to “borrow money from family,” which is all well and good, but we don’t all come from money.
So I got hurt and now I’m in default of my student loans because I couldn’t go to school this semester because I was literally in surgery the first day of classes, my credit cards aren’t getting paid, I moved back in with my mom— I am being destroyed and bill collectors are calling me 20+ times a day.
I get anxiety attacks just thinking about it and there is literally nothing I can do.
It doesn’t seem like a fair system.
I am curious if this is State of Illinois law? or federal? Maybe I am crazy but I swear the law is slightly different in California. Are you eligible for some sort of FMLA? My mother is a director of human resources, so she is pretty familiar with employment laws and such … for California definitely. I think she may know worker’s comp stuff throughout all 50 but that doesn’t really help you does it? I can always ask her of she has any advice. Are there any sort of scholarships or programs you are eligible for? I can definitely do some research on looking in to see if there are any organizations or something that could aid you/in your situation. Is there anyway to adjust the payment plan on your loans? Or is this like a if you don’t pay now we will collect with interest asap?
I hope tumblr, if not music, books, & movies are keeping your stress levels in check. I know that there are several ways that one can make money over/through the internet. I don’t have those hard facts but that certainly can be looked into as well.
Goodluck! let me know if there is anything that I can do to help
October is brought to you by the emotion “stress”
october brings with it too many things to think about, worry about, forget about, remember - and just as many people to connect with for various reasons and at various costs.
october means PRESSUREPRESSUREPRESSUREPRESSURE so much weighing me dowwwwnnnnnn
it means complaining on your blog to all the people who probably have the right to say “you dont know the meaning of stress!”
stress about work - everyday sales goals, dont get paid enough, no one to cover my shifts, getting scheduled on days when i’m not available, finding a new job closer to home, that interview next week, need to buy more work clothes
stress about school - never enough time to study, tests are mostly online, one of my teachers doesnt know how to teach, getting good grades, applying to schools properly and on time, making counselor appointments, parking permits, no water fountain at NOC (dont ask)
stress about homelife- pressure to help out around the house more, helping lori with her wedding and everything that goes with it, setting up for the party, need a car but we cant afford one, fear of mom’s cat shitting in my bed room
stress about you - mh that’s more of a self imposed pressure. but some of this stress is really stupid, more just anxiousness, impatience
stress about me - need to fix that
stress about friends - am i making enough time for them? do i even have enough time to devote to them? not the time that they deserve, and doing a half assed job is just as bad as not trying at all.
stress about health - feel guilty when i eat junk food, want to exercise more, obviously irregular sleep pattern is obviously irregular
stress about wasting my life - should i really be wasting my “youth”? i could be out exploring! i’m unanchored, i’m free! what better time to take advantage of this opportunity than now you crazy girl!?!?! but no no no i never do anything exciting or spontaneous. stress isn’t the right word i guess, just dissatisfaction or disappointment.
stress about stress - being stressed out makes me worried about being stressed out. WHY WHAT??!?!
stress about you -oh no not this again
i know anxiety is common and natural, but it seems like my nerves are being seriously over-pressed lately and usually it doesn’t bother me because my method of dealing with stress is not giving a damn so that if things don’t go my way i can say it didn’t matter anyway and it wasn’t my fault. but if i don’t want to fuck myself over for years to come that type of coping will not fly anymore.
why does having a brain suck so hard
october is overwhelming this year.
november will seem like a blessing when it comes around
please get here soon.
i will probably delete this when i’m feeling better. ;\
wow lace, I feel a lot less alone now. I have some serious issues with stress
