5 Thoughts Going Into A Stressful Week

These weeks are just the absolute worst

5 Thoughts Going Into A Stressful Week
Victoria Heath

As we have now entered into a new semester of a new school year, we have settled into our classes and our new routines. Going into my last year of college, I know all too well about some of the very stressful weeks that I have had. It sometimes seems as though all the teachers get together and plan how to make a particular week as stressful and busy with work as possible! Every semester, I seem to have a week or two (besides finals and midterms) where I have multiple tests and projects due.

For me, that week starts tomorrow and continues on into the next week. So, I really have two very stressful weeks back to back. They are both loaded with tests, presentations, quizzes, and of course my medical school interview which adds a whole level of stress to my already stressed out mind. I am writing this today in hopes of relieving some stress before I deep dive into this week, and I know that many other people can relate to this as well!

1. Just a quick mental freak out moment ensues

A mental breakdown for a moment when you realize how much you have to do in a short amount of time.

2. How am I going to get it all done?

The next stage is wondering how you are going to do it all.

3. I don't have time!

Where am I going to get the time to do all of this!

4. I should have started earlier...

Regretting not starting earlier on everything.

5. Why do I do all of this?

In the beginning, I usually do wonder why I do all of this. But in the end, I know what my goal is and even though things are tough right now I know they will all pay off in the end!

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
