i'm going to fail on saturday

turtles-with-hats15  asked:

Mama, I have my SATs on Saturday, and I also have my prom (I'm going alone because I have no friends) but I'm nervous about SATs because I have anxiety and people make me anxious and I'm gonna fail because anxiety. Any advice?

Keep in mind that all you can do is do your best and learn the best you can. Remember to drink lots and eat before the exam and try everything that helps you to stay kinda calm. I’m not really good with anxiety tips for exams, but maybe someone else can help?

Five rounds through the wash, two hours with a pair of tweezers, an hour of sewing, and another three hours of stitching. That described the youngest halfa’s Saturday night. She didn’t go by Danielle- or Dani- anymore. That was the name Vlad gave her, another reminder that he saw her as just another failed clone.

So, five times the suit went through the washer and drier, two hours of picking at the decal after it had been weakened, an hour of sewing it to be longer, and another three hours of stitching on a new design.

“You sure about this?” Valerie asked. “I mean, you’ve already done it so it’s probably too late now, but…”

“I’m sure,” the halfa replied with a nod. She pulled on the suit top, making sure it still fit like it was supposed to. She looked herself up and down in the mirror, a smile gradually forming on her face. “Goodbye Danielle, hello Liberty.”

“And your other name? ‘Dani’ is common enough for you to get away with, but Liberty’s more unique.”

Liberty straightened her back and held her head high. “Nike.”

Quick little update:

My phone (also known as my very way of life) has begun to flicker that flicker of impending doom, and it’s taking the functionality of my touch screen with it, so I may be restricted to using the Tumbles the old-fashioned way (on my failing laptop lol).

I’m hoping to obtain a shiny new phone this weekend, but in the meantime, my replies (and Life Lessons, which are done on a mobile app) may be later than usual.

I actually love my customers but we recently got a new manager and she is just so toxic. She sets us up to fail and barely hides that she wants the veteran employees to quit. Character limit won't let me go into detail, but every time I have worked lately I've had to cry. I'm handing in my resignation without another job lined up on Saturday- it's gotten so bad I can't focus on school because of work dread. I used to be so proud of my job and I actually did love it when I felt respected.
