Your life is very stressful. I know. I remember what it was like, but there is one thing you must remember:

High school ends.

High school ends sooner than you will realize. Even though it doesn't seem like it will now, that time will pass sooner than you will ever realize.

Keep your eye on the ball. The ball is graduation, which you will do very soon.

High school is nothing in comparison to having 7 assignments due in one week, along with midterms coming up and responsibilities.

Dear God... How am I going to handle adult life?

I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

You're not in adult life, yet. Also, you'll get the assignments done. Probably with time to spare.

I know. I meant- If this is bad, I can't imagine what adult life is like.

Also, you'll get the assignments done. Probably with time to spare.

I've finished 3. Going to finish 2 tonight hopefully.

wait until you graduate!!! you'll be very very sad, think working 40 hours a week (if your lucky) paying for everything yourself, shopping, washing clothes, dishes etc , no summers off, sometimes no holidays and weekends either, friends scatter to various states, college can be an extension of high school, class hours not the same as high school, cost. yup wish I was in school again.

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's only me, and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk alone

The workload in high school is less than college, but the main problem is the depressing social environment.

More likely the result of an unhealthy lack of alcohol rather than the actual high school life itself.
