words sometimes fail

How can you explain to the people around you what finals feel like?

I don’t have the words to explain my fragility and apathy and fear and craziness that’s happening inside of me right now.

It hurts. Emotionally, physically, spiritually. And there’s basically nothing I or anyone else can do to make it better. I can only study so much. I can only take so many breaks for sleep/food/yoga/love. I can’t fast forward. I can’t skip. I just have to keep breathing.

In eight days, I will be done with my first year. For better or worse… Done.

Until then, I think this thought sums up my feelings about finals pretty well…

“I feel like I’ve been shot at and missed and shit on and hit.” – Dr. Hamilton (via Dr. Dyer)
