What crushes two days like the stressful amount of homework piled on. It starts with a small portion of Stats homework. Not too bad I think to myself--sleep is definitely looking like it's on the agenda tonight. But wait. Not so fast. Econ, English, Anatomy, COLLEGE APPLICATIONS! You forgot? Or was it just wishful thinking? I do a lot of that. You have an English essay due next week? Better start now because procrastination leads to tears--those very tears you find stained on your paper right as you are handing it in. Anatomy projects stack on top of each other and before you know it, it's Wednesday. Two days gone. Like that. As if the wind had passed by and taken time along with it. I don't even remember sleeping; days have become a blur. Two days, filled with stress. Two days, that I can never get back. And so the story continues day after day, hour after hour, assignment after assignment. Two days isn't just two days anymore, it's a lifetime.
