Stressed Out Student, Who?


This Stressed Out Student (SOS) is a college student in the ever illustrious and sexy field of computer science, where she toils away her sleep and sanity in the hopes of becoming an assimilated, well-rounded individual in our lovely Matrix.

This blog is for those, who, like me, are stressed – I mean, enthralled – about college. I express the fears and joys and worries and screaming pathos of your average college kid who doesn’t have a clue what she wants out of life. Make yourself comfortable.

Cheers,
Stressed Out Student

And if I don’t update, I’m either a zombie, climbing Mt. Everest, or on vacation. Or a zombie who’s climbing Mt. Everest while on vacation.

Follow me on the Twatter @SOStudent, watch me stress out on YouTube, and swap book suggestions on Goodreads.

Check out my second blog, The Big Blog of All the S#!t I Know, where I swear a lot about society, human relations, shifting paradigms, and other pseudo-intellectual topics.

  1. I follow your blog and your picture/icon is featured on the far right hand side of my blog showing people who read my blogs what I read, perhaps you would like to tell some of my readers something about yourself and your blog. I will go with the odd/even method of interviewing (which I just made up), one question will call for a serious answer the other a less serious answer.

    1. French fries: Shoestring, steak, curly, crinkle cut? What condiment(s) on them?

    2. How long have you been blogging and why?

    3. What odor/smell/fragrance to you is the most pleasant?

    4. Favorite things to read? What genre? (you may expand on this if you so desire)

    5. A boat you are riding in is about to capsize what did you do to contribute to this?

    6. What is the best thing about blogging?

    7. How much ground can a ground hog, hog, if a ground hog could hog ground?

    8. What is the worst thing about blogging?

    9. If you could force one famous person to read your blog who would you force, and how much would you force them to read?

    10. Where do you hope blogging will lead you too?

    Will be posting your interview on a Saturday if you respond. aaforringer@gmail.com

  2. Been there, and done that stressing-out thing. Six years of it in university so far. Now, I’m taking some time off to write novels and figure out exactly what I want to do with my life.
    Cheers! 😀
    And yes, I’m following BOTH of your blogs. You’re welcome.

    • Can I skip this section of stress and go straight to where you’re at? ‘Cause these essays and petty assignments are making me hate the world.

      And allow me to bow down to your graciousness (…if that wasn’t a word before – it is now!). Thanks for double following 😉

      • Get to where I’m at right now?
        It’s called ‘dropping out’…. but that’s only because university hasn’t been working out for me. I’m trying something new, hopefully better.
        Skip all those petty essays and assignments? Yeah… I wish I could’ve found that ‘easy button’ when I was trudging through my physics degree. No such luck, however. 😦
        And thanks for ‘double following’ me back!

    That just made my day. 🙂 I love your blog!

  6. I learn computer science too.I can understand how it must be in the college. I think colleges try and make sure that there is nothing that you can enjoy in your life, but this blog must be a welcome exception for you.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my Organized Chaos! Suggestion: time travel to the past for some rest and relaxation. We won’t even know you were ever gone and you will be all refreshed to update us on your next escapades 😉

  8. Ya know, you kinda remind me of myself. In a lot of ways actually. But like a more rational, focused, stable–heck–an all around better Viola. 😀 😀

  9. Absolutely hilarious! I am a student of Computer Science and I am confused about what to do in my life so there are at least two things that are common between us. By the way, nice photo.

  10. I’m so goddamn tired and stressed out from studying,that I don’t remember anymore if I visited you to say thanks for visiting my space ship. My eyes are pained and popping out of my face, my head is splitting from ache . can hardly see my screen, and you look in worse shape than I am, but I wanted to visit and say thanks. I’ll be back soon after the pain is gone. Hope you’re still alive, or awake when I return. Cheers.

      • Actually, c.s. was my first major in college in the early 1980s. But, I didn’t enjoy it at all. I went through 2 ½ years without knowing what the hell I was doing! Then, I switched to filmmaking and dropped out, when the bills got too much. I always thought I’d return some day. That some day didn’t come until 2006, when I finally decided to complete my college education. This time, however, I majored in English with my goal as a technical writer. I’ve always enjoyed writing anyway.

  11. Its great you have a sense of humour about life. Thanks for dropping by my site. Come by chill out. Good luck in your studies.

  12. thanks for stopping by my blog! and thank you more for your wonderful Liebster award post, I have also been nominated and never knew what it was all about! I get lost in life and don’t spend enough time on my blog, but thankfully people are appreciating. I can’t wait to read more of your posts, nice job!

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    I’ll be a stressing out high school student in about half a year, so… perhaps I’ll need to develop a ranting hobby too 🙂

  14. Stressed out is the one thing I do no miss from my college days. Life DOES get better. I wish you all the success in the world. Thank you for the visit and like to Fair To Middling. I hope my sarcasm and snark make your day less stressful (and I hope you enjoy the serious stuff too). Take care, Bryan

    • Don’t worry, I have plenty of hair left (I just have to cover up the bald patch 😉 ). Us stressed out students have to stick together to keep from going insane!

      Thanks for reading! Glad you like the background 😀

  15. Hey! Fellow college freshman here, looks like I’ll be doing a lot of relating. 😛 I love your writing by the way, funny stuff!
