    I experience a range of emotions, depending on the particular circumstances I endure during that period of time. As of now, during the school year, as workload rapidly increases, I often feel drained of emotions, which is a consequence of physical exhaustion. Moreover, I have noticed in myself an apparent shortness of temper, resulting in frequent anger over insubstantial stimuli, such as my parents making a facetious comment regarding my words or actions. However, happiness is still felt, especially in conversing with friends.

    Honestly, my primary emotions really depend on where I am. At home, I mostly feel jubilant and content at life because I can relax and not think about school but when I am at school or I have to think about school, I tend to feel perpetually exhausted and kind of depressed. This is due to how I can wind down and relax by doing my favorite hobbies like watching TV, reading, and listening to music while at school, I constantly feel stressed about grades and exams which drains me really fast.

    What first comes to mind is happiness, but more realistically my most common emotion has to be contentment, because at times, being super happy all the time, can be just as mentally draining as being sad. Being content is significantly easier, because you’re neither happy nor sad, just calm and collected. And for me personally that seems just fine.
