Wednesday Stress Relief

I need a break. Like desperately. I want to cry when I look at my schedule. I have something due every week from now until finals week. (With the exception of Spring Break...thank the Lord!) I don't even know how to deal with this much stress...I'm not usually this bogged down. I mean typically I get busy but I can still see the light at the end of the tunnel, this semester is one big endless tunnel.

I don't mean to complain so much. I'm still enjoying myself. I deal with the stress in a few ways:

1. carmel macchiato with hazelnut
2. A bit of bible reading.
3. pandora - temper trap station or adele station (although yesterday is was a rod stewart station haha)
4. netflix on the iPad in bed with Roxy keeping my feet warm. That is the best part of the day I think :-)

Today, I took two tests, finished a rough cut for a friend's film, am waiting to pick up the rough cut of Team Danger's film, and have an essay to write by Friday. So since I have a lull because I'm at the halfway point I'm going to do some major unwinding tonight. I might even venture over to CYC for a trip through their magical froyo buffet!

How do you handle your everyday stress?

Okay, so here's my advice on all that school work: DO IT.

I mean, don't watch TV, don't go on the internet unless you have to, and just straight up be miserable for a few weeks. It'll be worth it for real.

I never followed this advice when my schedule got insane during my final year at university and I ended up a straight C+ to B- student. And I do regret it a little. TV is always the same crap and the internet isn't going anywhere.

Also, allow yourself breaks and lots of sleep and exercise, but make sure it's scheduled. Like, tell yourself you'll work hard until 7pm and then take the night off. But you have to keep the promise to yourself.

Good luck!
