this is how stressed i am

Blurryface

No matter how Stressed Out I am I always love talking to you. I have a Heavydirtysoul and it often makes me feel that I don’t matter but you are always there for me and I can never thank you enough. We are Fairly Local so we know where to Ride and how to help each other. I know Lane Boy often gets pushed aside and I think he deserves more of the spotlight. I believe that The Judge and the Message Man are the same person but they needed to Polarize so they now appear differently. Sometimes I Doubt myself but never you, you are the Tear In My Heart and I love you a lot. Though we live in different places, I think we have the same Hometown because of the people we’ve met and the places we have lovingly decided to call home, one band did that for all of us. We are all here together as a very spread out family but the clique is our home. I know things around you might be saying to be a Goner and that you don’t matter. But listen, you have to say Not Today because you matter, you are so important and loved. We Don’t Believe What’s On TV because it’s telling us that we aren’t worth it but we know that we are. Stay alive

Ok, real talk.

How do you motivate yourself to make art and write when you feel like poop and your depression is not allowing you to get out of bed?

I feel so anxious and stressed about not being able to create. I’m months behind on like 20 projects I started (and the clock is ticking) and have no energy to get back to them.

So far, I made a list of things I need to accomplish in order from easiest to most difficult and time consuming.

Any more tips?

I am having an emotional breakdown over a mediocrely nice apartment and two sweet people who live there, and it’s an hour before I have to leave for work, here we go. So that’s how we’re gonna play this game, huh? Nice.

anonymous asked:

Do you ever feel pressured to get your workouts in because you're so plugged into your data? Do you think you could turn everything off for one run and just be in the moment or would that make you anxious?

I don’t think I have this problem - though I have read a lot about this in running magazines and blog posts, so I know it is pretty common. 

In my case - I am very much still learning what my body is capable of. Having real-time data helps me challenge myself in ways I never have in the past. 

So while I don’t think running without my watch would make me nervous - I do think I might not push myself as hard. 

But you do make me wonder - perhaps I should try it, just to see how it goes :)

Is this something you are struggling with anon? If you are finding tech to cause stress, I would at least try working out without it and seing how it goes.  

Good luck anon.

Official Semi-Hiatus 

   Over the last few weeks life has really taken a fist and punched me right in the gut. I, myself, am getting sick as always this time of year with my bad immune system. My husband is still recovering from his injuries and has two more surgeries to get through which is so hectic and terrifying for me. My good friend is sick as well which does not aid in my stress levels, which are through the roof, actually, there is no roof anymore like holy cow. Also, I am working 90-95 hours a week due to medical bills, and, u g h.

  On top of that, I have lost a lot of muse due to my stress levels being super high. My Thranduil has been lacking severely for the last month and I just don’t want to and I cannot keep forcing him to work when he’d rather not.

  So, unfortunately I must put this blog on a semi-hiatus. I am not sure how long this will last, but until I return it is as of this moment, indefinite. My IM’s however will be open as always, and I will check them every few days when I get the chance.

  Many hugs, much love!

college study tips that actually help
  • put your phone on silent and put it across the room
  • listen to classical/soundtrack music without lyrics
  • make index cards for important vocab
  • wear pajamas
  • make diagrams and pictures. they don’t have to look pretty, as long as you understand it
  • make timelines for historical events
  • have a light snack
  • drink coffee or tea to keep you going
  • take a break every hour or so
  • have one pencil/black pen and one colored pen or highlighter. anything more will just distract you. the aesthetics aren’t important, your knowledge is
  • don’t be afraid to email/message your teacher or a classmate if you don’t understand something. the last thing you want to do is learn the incorrect information
  • know that sleep and health is more important than your grade. you cannot perform as well on a test if you are tired or sick. take care of yourself
  • it’s not a race. it’s not about who can learn something in the quickest time, it’s about learning
  • take a deep breath 
  • prioritize your homework by how long it will take you and when it’s due
  • plan some you time in between studying and school
  • if you’re mentally exhausted, set a timer for 30 minutes and take a nap. any longer and you’ll wake up even more tired
  • don’t understand something? that’s perfectly fine, don’t stress over it. ask for help rather than complaining
  • have a goal in mind and write them down. say things like “i am getting an education so i can get the job of my dreams. the life that i want. the happiness that i deserve”
  • be thankful. it is a privilege that you get to go to school and get an education. 
  • you got this.

Self-Care for Students

I am making this post because I have been demonstrating atrocious self-care. Well, I haven’t really been doing any self-care at all. So, for that reason, I am making this post to not only help myself but help other students as well—because I know I’m not the only one out there working non-stop and not taking time for myself!


Time Management

You may be wondering–how does time management fit into self-care? Time management has everything to do with self-care. If you don’t have good time management, then you are probably:

a) losing sleep to complete assignments

b) skipping meals to study

c) not taking time to just relax and de-stress

Make sure you are keeping track of your syllabuses and make sure you have enough time to complete each assignment.

Make appointments to relax whether that be alone, with friends, your s/o(s), or family.


School/College/University Counselor

If you are dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression, make sure you are taking care of your mental health!!! I can’t stress this enough!! Your mental and physical health comes first. If you are struggling with either, how can you be successful in your studies? Your well-being matters and you deserve to have some peace of mind during your school year.

Reach to out and take advantage of the resources that your school offers. Most schools should have a therapist/counselor on campus. If you don’t know how to see a counselor, ask around. This can be a good option for those who cannot afford therapy and/or do not have the time to go to a therapist outside of school!


Exercise and eat healthy

This is something that easier said than done. This is something that I am working on as well. My university has a gym, and I always try my best to get there, but the past few weeks of school have just been so busy and I haven’t had the chance to go.

This may be hard, but try your best to get exercise, even if it is only ten minutes. Even if it’s going for a short jog or running on the treadmill for a bit at the gym. Exercising has been proven to help with depression and stress. It’s also an important part of your overall health.

Many college students are familiar with the struggle to find affordable and healthy food. My university’s cafeteria in my school is ridiculously expensive and I bring a lunch every day. I commute so I am not familiar with things you could do if you are living on campus. If you have any times for dorm students, please feel free to add them!

I can make a post in the future about affordable food for college students.


Treat yo’ self!

That’s right! You heard me! Last week I went up to Chinatown and bought myself and lychee crepe—because I’m worth it (I’m working on building my poor self-esteem—I’ll make a post about that later). Celebrate your success by doing little things for yourself. It doesn’t need to be big. It could be taking a nice bath, go to a movie, hang out with a friend, etc. Going to school can be stressful and it’s important to take some time to do fun things for yourself. You work so hard! You deserve it!


This is by no means an exhaustive list. Please add anything that you feel is important for self-care for students!
