Stress.
This feeling is imminent, its strong. It swallows one's soul into the dark and wretched hole of fear. You can't see where it's coming from, nor can you anticipate it. All it does, is creep on you when you least expect it and start piling all expectations on you. It can make you, and at the same time, break you. You don't know where to stop or worse, even start. It makes you feel like you're the most bitter thing on earth, wallowing in your own self pity and yet you see the world moving on at increasing speed, throwing you off with each step. Every single word of advice or concern sparks off tears, emerging like an uncontrollable surge of confusion, leaving you in pieces as you try to figure out where you have fallen and risen, with each step steeper than the other.

Still, at times like this, all you need is just a little self-assurance (or maybe a lot on my part) and just a hint of confidence to push your way through. The end might be near, but it's still the start until you sit for the paper. Every hour is a start, every minute, every moment. If we choose to give up now, then why did we even hold on in the first place? If everything was so easy to begin with, what are we going to learn? What are the life lessons that we'll be relating to others in the end when there were no experiences to begin with?

We're afraid. We're lost. We're all alone but yet, together.
