When I find myself in times of trouble, Ferris Bueller comes to me, speaking words of wisdom:

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”’

The life of a student is stressful. Obligations pile up and homework and studying seem unending.

It’s week six and life is draining from me.

My friends are now checking in with me to ensure I eat three meals a day and get enough sleep.

We take life too seriously and base our happiness on the success of our college career. 

We think, “Once I achieve this I will be happy,” but what’s wrong with being happy now?

If you feel like you’re drowning, challenge yourself to find the time to take a break this week.

Go for a quick walk. Look at a few memes or get food with friends. Put on a face mask. Watch a good movie. My recommendation would be “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

Just give yourself a break. Live a little.
