Writing has always been my getaway from life, but I have been kind of putting it off and my heart just hasn’t been in it. That and I seem to be too busy with homework to even think about it. Exams. Exams. Exams. Each following the last by a few days between. Each day is filled with homework and more homework. I am ready for the summer and a much-needed mental break from course work. However recently, I have been reading a series by Kiera Cass called The Selection. And it seems I cannot put the book down.
Oreos. I feel like I have been living off Oreos and Ramen Noodles for days. I have been so entranced by homework that I can feel the burnout lingering in the back of my mind. Sometimes I feel like there is no escaping this trance, but then there are times I see a small light at the end of my tunnel. A light that gives me hope that this will all be over soon and life as we know it will go back to normal.
Have you ever felt like sometimes you are invisible to everything around you and you are like a ghost watching other people’s lives play out in front of you? I feel this often, and sometimes I want to scream from frustration, but that would just be weird. And how much help would it really be to scream and have everyone look at you like you are just some nutcase. Well, most people look at me like I am a nutcase anyway so what does it matter.
