Oh dear lord. It's the eve of an examination and I've never felt so uninspired. I  have also had three people telling me various unflattering things about myself. I'd have laughed in normal circumstances, but I'm going through a rather bad phase generally, so I've taken the three comments about me to heart. The worst part is, I'm usually quick to retort, but on all three counts I've remained silent out of shock and also because I'm already upset about certain things and a little phased out.

Time to move into a shell therefore and focus on work and studies and just a few people. Yes I know I'm being oversensitive and all of that, but that's all I can handle at the moment and I really don't need naysayers at this juncture of my life.
