going mental (5) awesome shit
I was an RA in college, and we had to around while all of our students moved out. You would be blown away at the awesome that rich college students throw away just because they are too lazy to pack it all up and bring it home for the summer.
I'm a . Professionally, I'm very confident. But personally I spend a lot of time wondering what could've happened in my life but didn't. I like to think it makes me more prepared. I like to be on top of , which is why I don't ever want to be blindsided like that ever again. You got that?

I'm miserable all the time now. I can't seem to catch a . I'm sure I'll be fired at some point because I just can't focus, I'm the world in a daze. I hate my job anyway, so they'd be doing me a favor.
