Stressed- “My body is literally 95% stress right now”

Tired- “I just slept for 12 hours straight but I’m still tired”

F&$K it- “F&$K it I’m going home”

Proud- “I actually wrote this paragraph that sounds legitimate!”

When this mood occurs– Not as much as you’d like.

 

Caffeine withdrawal- “It has been three hours since my last coffee, I need more”

FriYAY– “Its Friday, so I’m going to do a happy dance, even though I know damn well I will be working on my PhD this weekend”
