I have felt particularly stressed

I have felt particularly stressed out since Sunday. I don’t really know why, but it just feels like stress. I have been sick, and I feel like it’s as a result. This is especially strange considering the fact that I took monday off from work (and again today… yesterday sucked), so you’d think I’d feel if not better, at least non-stressed out about stuff… but no, it seems to just get worse!

I feel like there are tons of things looming over me right now, and I don’t know why.

  1. This is per your comment on Irish-girls’ blog:

    My comment to her:
    “I have a very strong belief that everything happens for a reason. Wherever you end up/go, that is where you are meant to be. Just let things happen :)”

    Your response to my comment:
    “BAH!!! Everything happens for a reason!?! I hope you can ignore this BS and go out and do whatever it is you want to do. Things happen because you make them happen! You can’t live your life expecting that the right things will just happen to you! That’s a defeatist attitude if I’ve ever heard one. ”

    I posted a response to this on her blog but I wanted to post it here too, hope you don’t mind.

    Basically I guess I didn’t do a very good job explaining my theory. Of COURSE things happen because we MAKE them happen. If we just sit there and *let* things happen, nothing would ever ever ever get done. And, as a side note, I’m practically an athiest so I was by *no* means suggesting that we are led by god or some-such. My theory is (not-so)-simply that the choices we make, the things we make happen are made/happen for a reason. For example: By doing a hell of a lot of research, I chose to apply to the University of Maryland. I got in. I have been attending the University of Maryland. *Because* I made those choices and because I *did* that research on the school, I have had a lot of amazing opportunities involving what I want to study that I most definitely would not have had elsewhere. Coincidence? Maybe. But I don’t believe in coicidences. I believe that our actions have consequences. These consequences we are somehow “supposed to” have.

    Maybe that clears it up, maybe that muddles it a bit more.

    I just don’t like being called a defeatist. I am the opposite of a defeatist. I am always proactively monitoring my life, reflecting, changing, doing.

    That’s all.
    I’ll shutup now.
