i have found that i can internalize, compartmentalize and even sometimes utilize stress but eventually it finds a way out of my brain and, if i'm lucky, the stress leaks out in insignificant ways that don't actually affect my mental well-being.
what i'm saying is... i've discovered, like, ten 4-month sized grey hairs in the past week.
don't worry, i feel fine.
my hair's jumping on the stress grenade for me.
i'm going to go make an appointment at the hair salon now.
well, not "now" now.
because it's 12:30 in the morning.
but you get the point.
... leave me alone.
