I think I had an anxiety attack

I think I had an anxiety attack last week. I had just been given a task I had requested when I suddenly developed this feeling of intense panic. I felt unworthy. My chest began to constrict.

Senior Year Chronicles: A Chapter Ends

I had my final year project defense on Wednesday. The thought hasn’t sunk in yet. I know I have done it. But I am yet to deal with the ramifications of the whole process.

THAT BLACK KID WITH LONG EARS AND A FUNNY NAME

“WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?” MY 2016 JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY

  If I could summarize my 2016 in one sentence, it’d be the question, “What do you have to lose?” Early in January 2016, I received a call from threesixtyGh asking if I would be interested in joining their writing team. I had only been writing for a year or so and had been blogging… Continue reading “WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?” MY 2016 JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY
