I haven’t been in school for a year thanks to personal issues that kept me from getting by. This first (and hopefully last) semester back is kicking my ass. But as I sit here studying until my brain swells, I made a realization. The fact that I’m working so god damn fucking hard every hour of the day that im not sleeping or at work means im back to my normal studious self. Its a side of me I haven’t seen since before my mental health started to plummet. And suddenly this pain in the ass midterm coming up in less than three hours for this pain in the ass class is a little more exciting.
