d-4 till my NEXT exam ~ Victoria

how on earth has my 8 days become 4 so quickly so following from that mess of a post, i ended up getting 3 hours of sleep, which in retrospect was none at all because i kept waking up cuz of panic. slept at 3 woke up at 6, spent three hours revising quotes that…

inferno, work and stress ~ Victoria

It’s been a while since either Val or I have posted so here’s a life update from me. It’s about week 4 into Epiphany term now and it genuinely feels like the term should be ending soon simply because I have been under so, so much stress since the start of the term. Alas there’s like…

breakup reflections ~ Valerie

We broke up on Nov 4, our 1-year anniversary. Kind of a sad funny joke because it also happened right after the military ball, the same event we’d gone to on Nov 4 a year before, during which we’d decided we were going to make things official. It didn’t seem funny at ALL at the…

overwhelmed, but i’m content ~ Victoria

so much has happened the past few weeks and throughout this term. i hit the ground running when this year started – i’ve been so happy, then so upset, conflicted, then happy but conflicted, and stressed and just an overwhelming pot of emotions. i’ve already explained the stress and where that’s coming from but the…
