Last week I told a co-worker that life is exhausting and it’s a lot of work to even just exist. Today I feel especially tired after a long day of being around people and having to talk to people at my school campus for a few hours. It left me so drained. My social bandwidth for the week seems just about done even though the week itself only started. And tomorrow I have to do it all over again. I was so out of it that I forgot to attend class this afternoon (it was a virtual course, and my last one for this semester before I graduate).
I wish I could just cancel everything and hide under my blankets for the rest of the week. The weather also took a drastic plunge from being super humid to drearily cold. My spring allergies are acting up, I just started my period, and I still feel considerably uneasy about my technically unpaid work hours situation that may or may not go in my favor. I also got a bad reaction on my skin from some sunscreen I used a few days ago because I seem to be allergic to ingredients in it.
I don’t know what else to do except to shut down for the night (sleep!) and try not to think too hard about anything. I saw a classmate I hadn’t seen for a few weeks and was super honest when she asked me how I was (“I’m stressed about everything”).
