Literally my first thought when I heard this: PREAAAACHH. What kind of person wouldn’t love this quote? Ok, maybe some people, but I feel like it’s a proverb that anyone can relate to. For me, I have finals and AP testing coming up, so I’ve been so stressed out the past few weeks. All I can think about is getting good grades and not failing my junior year before college applications. But in reality, all this built-up tension has to be unhealthy for a young teenage body and mind. All my friends are in the same boat as well, and it’s just that time in our lives where we all are in serious study mode. But I think that we all believe it’s normal to be super stressed out and it’s a natural thing, but to perform well in daily life we need to relax. There’s no if or but to it; it’s just the plain truth. So I’m going to try and relax more as my tests come up, that way I won’t feel so stressed out the day of the test. I want you to promise me that when you feel stressed or when you’re full of tension, that you’ll take some time to relax and some time to heal yourself, just like I will.
