Holidays start tomorrow, and I’m really gonna need them. They said the stress buildup is exponential, and that is 100% true. I can feel it building each day, and my parents are NOT bloody helping. Incessant nagging, is among one of the biggest problems. I mean, do I really have to be reminded I have an assessment due next week? Yeah – like I’m really gonna forget all about it. And I really hate it when they remind me to do some piece of work, and I’ve been thinking about it for the last week – and then telling me I don’t seem concerned about school work, when that’s all that has been on my mind for the last oh… 10 bloody months? And of course, there’s the line that they’re more stressed than me. Bullshit. I mean, if I off loaded all my stress on them, they’d hear no end of it.
Laughter is a great stress reliever – it’s really great, but the downside is, when you appear so happy, everyone thinks you’re not stressed. When this happens, it can only take a small comment like, “you’re not stressed, you don’t look stressed,” to set you off. Stuff them for the next 4 months I say.
Now that I’ve had my little stress relieving harangue :)… on to other things. Might be getting Mandate of Heaven this Saturday (finally!). Notice that my entries are getting shorter and are becoming a weekly event.
Wow… three upsets. Brazil beaten by Norway. Nigeria beaten by Paraguay (or was it Bulgaria? Doesn’t matter – it was a 3-1 loss to Nigeria), and England lost to Romania.
