A return to where the ends aren't capped

Yes, I'm coming back to the place where the ends aren't capped. More than ever, I think I need a place to get this stuff out - an outlet for the things that fill up my brain. I always have so much brain chatter. It's something that has to do with my anxiety. Today is one of those days, however, when I really don't have the time to waste and a 5 minute or 10 minute ramble sounds like it could be effective. I have two huge tests tomorrow on completely different things. I'm not sure how they're going to go. I've been working toward this profession for a while, but this could put a real bend in the path: good or bad. I'm not sure. It'll really depend on how I do. I'm going to try to remember that I tend to be a good test taker and that knowing the method of taking these tests can do more than half the work for you. I just don't feel prepared on the material as much as I could. Especially the Social Studies Content. The prompt of this test is basically "know everything ever". It's kinda insane. I'm working on improving in some of the areas where I already have some vague knowledge so that I can associate knowledge I already have with that I need to know for the test. So far, I think it's going okay, but a practice test today will probably give me a clearer picture of what's going to happen tomorrow. In other news, as soon as I have studying that I must really buckle down on and my job is starting to get really work-filled (something it hasn't been in a while), I find some of the most interesting and inspiring things in the world that Id like to spend some time doing. Reading fairy tales, taking an MOOC, watching a series or two. But, of course, I shouldn't be spending this time that way. Arg - time's up.

Initial thought: Stress and needing an outlet
