Some school quarters (it will be semesters now) are more stressful than others. During the more stressful quarters I am preoccupied with homework and whatever little free time I have is highly treasured. Whether I use those precious opportunities to watch TV or play video games, I feel it is keeping me sane. Without those times, I feel like I would go over the edge. Blogging will be added to that list of sanity preservers as I will try and take at least five minutes out of my busy academic schedule to answer a Daily Prompt.
However, during break I’m not at risk of losing it at all. When school is out I’m not at risk of losing it, I just don’t have any jarring responsibilities other than eductation.
