To Whom It May Concern

If you're not here to make me smile go away

To Whom It May Concern

I am so stressed out I would rather just curl up in a ball under my blanket and sleep until I am 90 and dying. I don't want to have to write two essays, a presentation, and now an article for people to read on a late-night binge on the internet. I'm not feeling funny or happy or creative--I feel like literal poop.

I also don't get why people aren't allowed to just sit around and grieve for a little. What kind of dysfunctional society says "Sorry for your loss," and then forces you to get over it so they can grade a couple of papers that say nothing about you as a person or your capabilities as a student? Actually, nevermind as a student--I'm a human and I'm going through extremely weak human emotions and being forced to forge through them. If I keep it up anymore, I'm definitely going to a psych ward.

I am tired. I am immensely sad. I'm angry at how life works. AND I'm SO frustrated that no one seems to understand that I need a break. I want to keep my stress at bay and feel happy. I want to smile and mean it. I want to see happy things and feel happy they exist. I can't do that because I can't stop being sad but I can't feel that sadness and get through it because I have things to do. Does that seem normal to anyone, really?

I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemies to have an animal fall in love with them for 11 years and then have to hold them while they die. Like literally have them snuggling into you for dear life and then losing that life in half a second. It's awful and I'm messed up right now.

I need a break.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
