STAYER HALL — Having spent the past three weeks in a relatively calm state of mind, junior Matthew Angstrom (MCAS ‘18) reported that he was happy to finally reunite with his constant anxiety this week. While admitting that he enjoyed having some time apart from his existential dread during the holidays, the economics major confirmed that he had missed the persistent anxiety from the internship search, balancing academics with co-curriculars, finding parties to go to, eating correctly, becoming increasingly distant with friends from back home, and student loans.

“I certainly enjoyed Christmas break, don’t get me wrong,” said Angstrom while rapidly filling out a to-do list with a twisted smile on his face, “but once New Year’s came and went I was pretty much ready to head back to school so my anxiety could follow me around all the time. Sweaty palms in social situations, intense self-doubt in the Career Center, and insomnia in the evenings—it’s good to be back!” Angstrom, on his way to his third class of the day, noted that it probably won’t be long before he starts to miss his constant companion from home, boredom.
