stress during finals

If you’ve been following my tweets, you know that my eye has been on a roll in the world of twitching like a mad man. 😦 It was twitching all day tuesday and continuing on today. Its strange, I searched up the causes of said condition as apparently its from fatigue, stress, staring at the computer screen, and caffeine (or says google?). My dear Fieran mentioned that it could be that I’m too tense or in overdrive. I didn’t realize that I was being tense (stress is usual during exams, no big deal) but being in overdrive? At the moment, I don’t think I’m doing enough 😐 I could be doing so many things right now. But I guess I shouldn’t be? So this could be the origin of my stress-overdrive induced eye twitching, which by the way takes turns! It starts on the right, goes to the left for a bit then comes back 😦 One would assume that with three years under my belt here at UofT, I’d be better than controlling and managing my stress. The last time I crashed was back in first year, first semester, roman history 7-10pm exam in Kruger Hall in December. Oh the terrible memories. >< The only time I ever had a meltdown for an exam. Otherwise I’m pretty chill before an exam, joking about dancing monkeys and how hungry I am. I seriously think of food during exams, ’cause they’re usually around the time I eat lol whether it be the 9-12 exam, 1-4 exam or the 7-10 exam. Many a memory of dreaming of burritos, cake, pasta, something! So bad indeed. I’m pretty sure its from the fact that I have everything important coming up in the next 3 weeks and for some reason my brain won’t accept my logical conclusion that I’ll be fine. I can do this. I’ve done it many times before and this is nothing new. If I can survive pulling an all nighter at Robarts, I can survive this. I guess my brain feels like being illogical now.

  1. I spent most of my years in university struggling, stressing, not sleeping enough, not eating healthy and just generally negative. Now, 4 years after graduation, I have to say that that was the wrong thing to do. I’ve come to believe that I can achieve similar results with a less aggressive, more “zen” or “love myself” style of dealing with goals and pressure. There has to be a more calm, less torturing method, no? 🙂

    Good luck either way 🙂 Wishing you all the best and may you pass with flying colours.

    1. yeah, i prefer it the zen way too. the same amount of energy goes in, might as well do it without a frown on the face right?
