When peace replaced stress
With vacation just a week away, relaxing, getting more sleep, and seeing my family were almost within my grasp. I couldn’t wait to go home from boarding school and not have to worry about tests and homework. But I also knew that the upcoming week would be challenging because of all the assignments I needed to hand in, as well as all the tests and quizzes that stood between me and the upcoming break.
I was so stressed about everything.
As the week began, the stress started building. Monday and Tuesday I felt like I was just trying to get through as much work as I could, as quickly as I could, and I was finding it very difficult. On Wednesday it really hit me that I was feeling trapped. I was so stressed about everything that I felt like I didn’t even want to put forth the effort on my schoolwork anymore.
