So much stress! And I know heaps of people are thinking that ‘a university student can’t have that […]
The last couple of weeks I’ve been insanely busy. Okay, that’s a lie. The last week and a half, I’ve been insanely busy. It was the end of the semester this week, which means exams (one normal and one resit. (Which turned out to be only Dutch and not English. Long story. I ended up allowed to do the resit.), essays (one for this semester, one resit and one brand file, which are basically 5 mini essays) and the final products for the project we had.
Since I’m genetically inadequate of planning properly or starting thing on time, it was a week and a half full of stress. Actually, I kind of started early this time. Instead of starting the day before, I took the whole week. Still, it was way too late and I stressed out so much. The thing is, when I start stressing, I stop doing productive and useful stuff. Instead of writing essays, I went out and got filters for my camera lens (I love those filters! I got a UV one, a circular polarization filter and a fluorescent one. Especially the polarization filter is so nice. My cat hates me now though, since I wasusing her as a model and she wanted to sleep.)
Instead of studying for my exams, I started snapchat. Well, I started before, but now I developed a new hobby on snapchat. Since my cat is the most awesome person in my life (which sounds so sad, I know), she is my muse. The end result is this:
I am developing a whole series with my cat, ooky, as superheroes. It started with the mermaid one, since it was raining for three days straight and I was talking about becoming a mermaid. And now it is my new hobby. (Yes, I know. I need a social life. Or a job.) (And No, I did not make all three last week. Those are just the best ones I made, so far :))
Somehow, I did manage to finish all the essays on time, to show up to my exams and to finish my projectwork somehow (an hour late) on time. So I guess, last week was somehow not that bad-ish? ALthough I am pretty surprised that I didn’t end up with stress related health problems. Or maybe I already have them and I’m just used to it by now. I’m not sure.
So that was basically my last week and a half. Procrastinating, stressing over the huge amount of work, more procrastinating, snachat, stress, work. And a bit chatting with my Australian friend, who is back in Australia now…Talking to him was a nice pauze between stressing and working though. I still suck at flirting though, but now it feels more natural to talk to him. But still, there are some weird things I say. (mostly when I’m drunk though…)
Anyway, I hope to give you an update about that soon! (Did I mention I wanted to go to Australia for Christmas? I literally looked into every possible way to do this as cheap as possible, but I still can’t afford it. Sad me)
