Why I ignore noises

I remember during the past years, I used to be a follower of other people’s attitude and opinions towards their bad situations.

Are CBS students locking themselves out of the conflict?

Being a CBS student puts pressure on me!

Entering this new semester, I am feeling the pressure more than ever! Imagine doing such a great job to a point where you feel that you have set new standards to keep up and in addition to that, the people around you have set the same standards for you too. This is my current situation.

Stress has taken over my life!
