Lauren With a Side of Lewy
by Lauren U,
PAC Core Team Member
I'm having a rough time. Everything is too much, too difficult, too frustrating, and too bothersome. I went to Las Vegas with two high school friends. I mentally gave up after day two. The noise, the lights, the smoke, and the people were all annoying. It became too stressful. I was overwhelmed. I can't be more descriptive than that. I'd been planning on writing this article to share interesting or funny moments of my visit. In the end, I'm unable to. I'm not going to write any article other than this. I can't. I won't. I don't want to. I'm quite unhappy. So, this is it. This is my article. It's all I've got.
