For me, it's schoolwork that keeps me up all night. Sometimes it's because I've been loaded with homework and at-home-projects that I need to finish, and sometimes it's because I'm stressing out about school.

This is so true, some people literally live for the amount of likes they get on social media.

Unfortunately fresh produce in the USA is more pricey for those people on a budget than the cheap processed can of soup.

I used to draw and create some nice pictures, but my life now is my job (in finance) and I feel exactly like this, with a small difference - the colourful creative part of my brain is probably a tenth of the grey one. Yes, it pays the bills, but there is no joy and definitely not happiness :(

There is no compromise, these days. So sad how our world is crumbling right before our eyes because people don't stop and think about the harm we are doing to the place we live in.
