I just don’t feel it. I know I am. I just don’t express it. Even if I do express it, I don’t feel it. I feel horrible. I feel like my life is crashing around me, even though I know it’s not. And I can’t make it feel better.
It’s a difficult thing, having feelings and thoughts not match. I often wonder how other people think and feel. I know I’m not the only one to experience this, but what about those people whose thoughts and feelings match? How do they function? Much better than me, I suppose. Not having to constantly remind themselves that the world is not, in fact, coming to an end. That everyone doesn’t hate them. To just wake up not even having to think about whether you’ll be able to make it through the day without wanting to cry for no reason. To just wake up and not have to think about things you don’t want to think about. It must be nice.
I had two papers due for two classes taught by the same professor yesterday. I have a poorly written paragraph done for one. That’s all. I was able to write my teacher an email explaining the circumstances, and she’s agreed to accept the papers late. Not everyone who doesn’t finish their papers get to turn them in late. I’m lucky. I suppose I’m happy that I have another chance, but I still feel bad. I don’t feel relieved.
I have so much to do before the end of the semester in two weeks. I have papers and projects and lots of stuff, plus my house is a mess and I really should clean up my stuff. I would feel better if I did. Maybe. And I’d be able to work better. Maybe. But it’s just so hard.
I think I’m going to go to my volunteer position now. I’ll be early, but I guess that’s better than sitting here complaining. I don’t know what art project we’ll do today. I have lots of ideas, so I guess I’ll see if they got any new supplies and then decide.
After volunteering, I’ll Skype with my cousins for their art lesson. That will be good. I like them. Then, I’ll have to do homework, because there’s so much of it to do. It will never be done, it seems. I should probably just give up. But apparently I’m not allowed to do that, according to my mother. Giving up is not an option. Fine. Be that way. See if I care. I do care. I care too much. It hurts.
I guess I’ll go now. Hopefully, I feel better later. But probably not. That’s just how it is.
