Same Strategy, Different Scenario: Stressful Week

Emily Robertson, Staff Writer

Last week was one of the most stressful weeks I have had so far. I had to work long hours, get my work turned in for my classes, study for an upcoming psychology exam, start my English paper, get ready to apply to colleges, and trying to catch up on sleep. 

As far as school work is concerned, I took my time and didn’t procrastinate. I completed almost everything and did what I had to do. When I went to work on Friday, I was asked to stay till 11 because of an issue that had occurred. After I had left work that night, my car got a flat tire. I called my parents and my dad and step mom came to help me, but as my dad was trying to take off the deflated tire, the nut wasn’t coming loose. My dad tried and tried and I started to get overwhelmed so I prayed. Eventually my dad broke off the nut and the screw, so now I only have 3 nuts on that tire. I had to pay for a 58 dollar tire and I had to learn how to put it back on. 

Though that whole entire situation I had to keep my head up and remember that it was all going to work out. I knew I was going to have to spend money but I was thinking positive about it. I thought how spending some money on one tire is better than not having a car at all. 

At the end of each day I just had to be thankful and smile about the things that happened and know that they could’ve been a lot worse.
