Fishbowl

Do you ever have a day that just thoroughly sucks?

Do you ever intermittently cry all day? When you know why, and it's not even that important--but it feels like the biggest thing in the world?

Do you ever try all day to finish a paper, just to keep yourself out of a doghouse that you know isn't as big as you fear it might be--and at the end of the day, you've come up with practically nothing?

Do you ever wonder when the very thought of "evaluation" won't send you reeling?

Do you ever wish you could be as much of a grown-up as your friends seem to be?

Do you ever feel completely worthless--and you only half-believe people when they tell you that you're not?

Are you ever both grateful that people care about you, and wishing they'd let you figure your own self out?

Do you ever know you need their help, or at least their listening, and wish you didn't?

If you do, you're not alone.

Yes. Sigh. I'm sorry.
