The other day I took a stress test for fun. According to the results I passed with flying colors, that is if a very high stress level is passing. It seemed as if I was checking off about half the questions they asked. The good news is I see an end to a portion of the stress in just a couple days. Finals week is almost here, and will soon be over with.
Some things I've learned about myself when being super stressed over the past couple years.
-It can be almost paralyzing and results in barely function at all sometimes.
-It can give a heightened sense of what is going on around me at all times.
-It tends to make me take everything far too seriously for far too long.
-I tend to become extremely introverted and self-aware for stints until the stress level goes down.
-Often when others are freaking out, I am the most calm and able to function with very orderly fashion.
-It seems that I have very high stamina in just getting stuff done that needs to, even after I've been burnt out for quite a while.
During my break between semesters I am planning to work on a music project I've had on the back-burner for a while, this will also help relieve some stress and be rewarding by finally finishing a segment of something that has been in the works for a couple years. The creative cycles of my brain will once again be called upon, and it will feel good to work on something that I actually want to for a change, rather than things I need to work on out of necessity for the sake of completing bigger goals.
