7 days of stress...

So, Thursday I realized some things:
  1. It was already the first late day to take my stats test and not only had I not studied, but I had missed a lot of class (which explains why the test was such a surprise)
  2. I have a research paper due in a week for D&C
  3. I have Film History midterm in a week that consists of one-page essay questions
  4. My second-block class started that night
  5. I forgot to do my accounting lesson/quiz
  6. I was called in to work for lighting this weekend
  7. I am teaching/co-teaching 5 or 6 multimedia classes next week for work
  8. I think I'm starting to get a cold
These realizations caused me to get very stressed out in a really short time. It was like I was floating along with plenty of time to manage everything and I was whacked with a stick and all the sudden there is no time to sleep.

I stayed up until the early hours of the morning to study for my test. I got a 96, which I am certainly happy with considering how much class I missed and I learned all the material in a late-night cram session.

So, now I am dead tired. I like sunglasses mostly because they can hide the fact that I really look like a zombie. But tonight I am going to this thing (I don't know what else to call it) where there will be a gathering of directors/produces/actors/etc from California and I can't wear sunglasses. I'll just have to be "tall zombie-boy" for the night i guess.

That stinks. Let me know if I can do anything for you.

Considering the stress relief kit is on the computer, please don't bang your head on the computer. Not only will this possibly break your computer, but this may give you a massive headache to throw on top of all the other things going on.
Just remember to take it one day at a time, and if you don't get some things done it's okay. There's always tomorrow and it's better to get them done late than never.
If you suspect you may have many "tall zombie boy" days to come, they sell creams that reduce the puffiness and undereye circles, and then there's the "if you have red eyes, get clear eyes" crap.
