What is stress?

Stress is a big factor in everyone’s life, even my own just the amount of it differs from person to person. This topic is a big impact on me this quarter; working, school and my volunteer work that I have committed to. Going to school with 19 credit hours, working 25 hours a week and helping coach a eighth grade softball team has kept my stress levels high. It seems like I have no time for anything, and that I am constantly running from one place to another. When ever someone calls me to go out, I have to make time and actually schedule them in with my schedule. Who does that at eighteen?
To deal with my stress I tend to listen to music, preferably music like AC/DC older rock songs. Sometimes when I do not want to deal with anyone I go to my room and just go to sleep. People deal with stress in numerous ways, from eating to working out.
I need to not stretch myself to thin with so many events. School is my top priority, I should cut back my job hours and limit my time coaching and focus all my extra time to school. I need to work on things ahead of the time and not wait until the last minute when I do not really have the time to spend my complete concentration on my school work.
Do you have a lot of stress in your life? What do you do to release stress? These are many questions that people ask to help keep their stress levels down.

Okay, Tabby, but I've never heard of AD/CD . . . that sounds like a band for people who are too hyperactive to stay focussed. ;)

Don't be too stressed to proofread your posts! 4/5
