Overcommitment at school.
Sounds like such a petty, trite, and relatively small thing to complain about compared to the family and relationship problems other people are having. But I have to concede to myself that no matter how much I want to minimise my stress from school, it is having an emotional toll on me.
Yet, I do all this by choice. A choice to commit to what I do, and a choice to quit when I want - although not without consequences. But what I'm getting at is this stress is a responsibility and almost a 'privilege' by being able to have so many opportunities.
I like listing out the things I do. I like to stare in awe at what I'm accomplishing. I suppose it's a sense of validation and pride in the work I do.
But I won't.
I just think I need to find a balance somewhere. I'm making the most of my school year, and although I'm able to find time to socialise... everything is so cramped and so intense. No wonder I have no time for a relationship.
Got to do some serious prioritisation. Gosh, I'm procrastinating again.
