The miserable English weather and the three essays I have to do are getting me down; I can't quit crying and I don't enjoy doing anything anymore and I'm not eating properly because it's too expensive; my boyfriend and I keep teetering on the edge of breaking up and I hate that he has to deal with my being sad just because I can't get it under control; and I miss my family and my friends. I could very much use a hug because everything sucks and it feels like it always will.

I'm going through a bit of a confusing time. I can't elaborate, but I've been stressing out a lot. Getting more gray hairs than someone my age has any right to have.

The last fish in one of our aquariums is dying; it likely won't make it through tomorrow. I'm not specifically attached to this or any other fish, and this fish has had an absurdly long life for a tropical fish. We've had it for close to six years. But it upsets me to see it struggling to swim. I'm so fixated/obsessed with death that I see it as a reminder of my own mortality. The idea of realizing that the end is near is devastating to me.

Of course it probably doesn't help that I'm running on too little sleep and too much stress (grades are due January 2) and that it's New Year's.

I had a similar revelation when my betta died this summer. You don't have to be specifically attached to a fish in order to be moved or upset by watching it die. I'm sorry. [Frown]

(((((blacwolve))))) Ok... I've been trying to keep really busy, which has kind of been working, but whenever I have a minute to myself, it's not so good. :/ It'll pass, I know, but right now it sucks.
(((((Ic))))) [Smile]

As well as other issues that have been plaguing me recently, I also just found out that my music scholarship for next semester is at stake... I haven't completed my voice jury yet, because I had lost my voice by the end of last semester, and was physically UNABLE to perform it, so I currently have an incomplete grade in voice. I'm making it up sometime in the next two weeks, which is perfectly within the school code guidelines, but I just got a letter that said that I haven't met the requirements and that they are suspending my scholarship for the spring semester.

I can't afford to go to school here without a scholarship... and it seems very unfair to me, considering this is beyond my control... I'm going to talk to my teacher about it tomorrow, and see if she's worried. Hopefully, once I perform my jury and fill in the grade, they'll re-issue my scholarship, but I can't help being really paranoid that I might not be around anymore in a couple of weeks. [Frown]

I know I've been more of a lurker than poster lately, but I could use some Hatrack hugs.

My job is sucking. I am under a lot of stress from time constraints and scheduling and equipment that doesn't work. My mother's health has really gone downhill in the last year. She's had to walk with a cane or walker (until a recent fall that left her in a wheelchair, hopefully only temporarilly). She's losing her hair and is buying a wig this week. It's really frightening watching your mom fall apart, especially when she's too young (54) for this kind of thing. My husband and I made some bad choices a couple weeks ago, that while somewhat damaging to our relationship, has actually made us more dedicated to each other. We are also grappling with the decision to start a family. We've been talking about it for a while now, and we've been thinking for the last month or so that the time is actually right. I'm terribly excited but also terrified about the idea of becoming a mother. I've started going off my meds in anticipation of going off my birth control and the whole experience is really overwhelming to think about. I know all these things will all be ok, but it's all a little scary and overwhelming right now.

Can I get a hug too? Not so serious of a problem, but I did slip and fall on the ice in my parking lot today. (I figured a hug would be better than a kiss where it really does hurt... O_o)

I like this thread. I've been down the last few days. It wasn't something I needed hugs for, just an intense apathy, and giving hugs helped me break out of it. So thanks everyone I got to hug!

Ok, I could use one again... (this just isn't my week)...

One of my roommates is mad at me. Granted, this doesn't seem like such a big deal, but I didn't do anything wrong, but, since she holds grudges like NO OTHER, I know this is going to last a really long time. I still haven't forgotten the two month period last year when she thought I was involved with her boyfriend, and didn't talk to me at all (though she would yell at him quite a bit for it...)

I really love her to death, and for the greater part of last year we were great friends. But now she's mad at me again, and I know I have another crazylong time of open hostility to look forward to... and on top of the rest of my life falling to pieces around me (all in the past week and a half... imagine that), I'm not altogether thrilled.

Basically, I'm in a horrible bitchy mood and I just need some love. [Frown]
