Mid-Term Stress


This time of the year is filled with stress, the smell of coffee, and graphite gliding across paper. It’s midterm week. Tensions are high, and stress levels are up. It’s crunch time. Time to take everything you learned from the first half of the year and pull it back from the far reaches of the forgotten world of your brain. Sleep becomes vital during this week, allowing your mind to recharge after a long day of thinking. Waiting all day for the minute your head touches your pillow, falling into a deep sleep. Food becomes the engine to your brain and the thoughts it processes. Time management becomes more important than ever, your life turning into a juggling act. People rush from place to place, always on to the next thing. This is midterm week.
