Hey, that rhymes.
In other news, I’m happy. I’m also in a good relationship, and more or less doing well in my classes.
So why, dear reader, have I been having stress issues lately?
Nothing major, don’t get all worried-like…just trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, as well as clenching my jaw.
Potential sources: school, lack of focus, lack of sleep. Changing seasons/weather.
I haven’t really been having PROBLEMS with school per se, but it is stressful — there is always something I should be doing or learning, especially with at least 1.5 tests/quizzes per week.
Lack of Focus
Closely related to the above. I don’t actually have a ton of work, but my attention has been even more divided than usual lately. In the middle of my biology test, I continually spaced out into the design on the floor and almost freaked myself into a panic attack or something like it (i’m not entirely sure why…). I can’t concentrate. It’s just kind of a reality i’ve been putting up with for a while.
Lack of Sleep
Positive feedback loops annoy the shit out of me sometimes, especially when they involve my own well-being. I slept badly the night before I got here, as I had to get up way early for my flight, and this could all be a result of that one night.
It’s always kinda fucked with my body. Nuff said.
Reasons to be slightly perplexed (paraphrased from an IM convo):
1. It usually EITHER takes me a little while to get to sleep every night, OR one night every so often when i’m up till the wee hours, not both.
2. It’s pretty damn rare that i wake up in the middle of the night, or before i’ve had enough sleep, for a reason other than an alarm or having to pee.
3. It’s probably nothing to worry about healthwise, as i’ve always had kinda low blood pressure, but dammit i don’t LIKE getting a bit woozy and disoriented nearly every time when i stand up.
In conclusion, if this keeps going, i’m going to really start on a quest to get to the bottom of my random symptoms. All of them. I mean it.
