"My mom died in August."
"What was your favorite thing about her?"
"Her sense of humor."
"What was the time you most appreciated her sense of humor?"
"Probably when I was in high school and she walked in on my girlfriend and I going at it. I was too embarrassed to go back home, so she called my girlfriend, and asked to speak to me. When I got on the phone, she said: ‘Bet you went soft pretty quick there, huh?’"
I cracked this week. I broke in half from the weight of all the things I had to do and the images of the people around me who have more going on than me but seem to be dancing gracefully through life.
After major problems with my advising, too much silly paperwork and bureaucratic nonsense, and so much homework and expectations pressing down on me for the last few months, I finally broke down and ended up in bed Thursday afternoon unable to handle even the littlest thing.
I was so worn down and I didn’t even know it. I thought I was taking care of myself by seeing my friends every so often and taking time for myself and my SO.
Instead, I was doing what I thought I should be doing, based on what everyone else was doing. And I didn’t even care for my own personal needs. I forgot that everyone is different and I need to do things for me.
So I can’t forget that anymore. Because being like that absolutely sucks. So remember, do what’s best for you. Live up to your own standards, not everyone else’s. It will break you.

Definitely make that face.
I do this lol
1. Seeing the habs win
2. Seeing the bruins lose
It’s the middle of the semester and I feel like I am drowning. It’s like for every assignment I get done three more pop up.
And the crappy part about it is that other people seem to take on more and balance it ~perfectly~ and I am only taking 13 hours and I feel like I am on the verge of stress sobs any freaking minute.
Seriously though, I’m really frustrated that I seem to only have enough time to see my friends once every two weeks. The only free time I have to myself to enjoy is doing my makeup every morning.
