What the hell is this?

Panic Attack

My midterms are approaching pretty quickly, and I've had a lot of due dates dropped on my head, I'm struggling to learn certain things and I feel like I'm falling behind on some stuff. This semester has been pretty demanding, but today was the first time I had gotten as overwhelmed as I did. While in the middle of studying for the Japanese midterms, I guess all my stress kicked into over drive and sent me into a small panic attack in the middle of class. Nothing outwardly serious, I'm good at keeping that shit contained, but I was feeling quite a bit of discomfort in my chest, I was panicking and getting lightheaded, ect. While I'm sure the stress was the big contributing factor, I'm pretty sure the over abundance of caffeine I've been drinking over the week is to blame for some of that too. I'm thinking I need to cut out most of the energy drinks from my diet. I've been getting them for really cheap at the local grocery store, so I've just been stocking them whenever I'm out, and I think that, in combination with how overly stressful the semester has been, contributed to my anxiety going all over the place.

I should just try to go back to Earl Grey in the morning or coffee.


Week 6 of the Semester

I suppose this stupid blog thing is a good place for me to dump and ramble about shit where no one will give a shit lol. Probably only gonna bother updating this thing once a week unless something serious happens because my life isn't interesting enough to update on daily.

I think I've mentioned a few times that I'm a design major at a UC out here in California, currently working on my senior project. Basically I work directly with a local organization, give them a new logo, advertising material, and a new website over the course of the year. I've always been fairly decent with my design work, but goddamn do I suck at web coding. My HTML/CSS knowledge is alright, but I need to learn at least some JavaScript for this project or I'm just wasting my time, but it's such a bitch of a language to learn, even for the basic syntax. I'm trying but the minute it starts confusing me, I blank out in the middle of the class. I'm starting to grasp some of it, but I still feel like I'm completely not getting most of it.

Also, learning a language is hard as hell. I've never been good with learning new languages, I learned that when I took 2 years of German in high school and didn't retain any of it. I'm taking Japanese to meet my school's language requirement of 3 semesters of a language. It's been really hard, but I seem to be doing well so far.

I dunno, that's all I really have right now.
