29 Aug

I was feeling pretty good last week, and now I feel like I’m losing my resolve.

The semester started today and all the stress came flooding back in. And with it, came the loneliness of no longer being in a relationship and not having another person around during stressful times. I have to decide on a research topic by the end of this week. It’s overwhelming. I don’t know what to pick. It has to be something that I can feasibly do a study on. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I feel like I’m not getting much guidance.

I hate school right now.

Only 256 days until graduation.

    Try reaching out for help from friends, mentors. If you don’t have a mentor, try to arrange to get one. When we’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s not optimal to be alone.

    Take care… your’re not so far from the finish line.

      I’m very touched by the thoughtfulness. I can’t seem to find your email address though. When I click on your name it sends me to facebook.
