Going Down: Too Tired To Function Edition

Things that are going down in August:
  1. Insects coming into your damn room.
    Wasps. Are. Everywhere. I open my bedroom window for no more than thirty seconds (because I'm overheating) and suddenly I hear it. Bzzzzt. BzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZzzzt. It flies on the walls. It flies to the ceiling. It gets tired and lands somewhere. And then it sees light from outside and finally gets out to be FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE-thunk. Thunk bzzzzt thunk thunk. This is what it thinks. I mean, I appreciate that your taking the time out everyday to visit me, wasp, even in school, but I'm afraid that it's never going to work out between us. I'm sorry. It's not you, it's me.
  2. School related anxiety
    I've only been in school for two days and yet I'm already feeling so much stress. A lot of pressure is put this year for students to work and it's working for me, but it might be working too well. I don't know, maybe this is just me still getting a shock going from Transition Year to the Senior Cycle, but I'm still getting used to the rhythm of fifth year. I have been investing so much effort listening in class because I don't want to miss anything, and doing that really does suck the energy out of you, that by the last three classes I'm feeling exhaustion and sleepiness creeping in, and I'm also fighting really hard not to take a nap when I reach home. Also I've noticed that I've been hungry all the time ever since school started. It seems worth it though, because I'm keeping up really well with the work being given on me so far. By Christmas I'll probably see what the rest of the year is going to be like in terms of school work.
  3. More school related anxiety
    You probably notice it judging by how many times I've been saying it in the last three days or so, but school is so exhausting and tiring and all the other adjectives that are bad and ends with -ing. I just. Ugh. I barely have time to do BALA, and although I did enjoy doing it this month, I'm really, really happy that it's ending in like two days. I promise I won't leave you hanging though, I will try and put something up every Saturdays and Sundays for the rest of the year, and then we'll see what we're going to do after that. 
In conclusion, school is exhausting and wasps are annoying.
