My GIF’s aren’t working and that makes me sad.


We’re nearing the end of the semester, so you know what that means! Student burnout and mental breakdown season baby. Personally, my favourite season of the year. If you didn’t clue in to the fact that I’m being sarcastic, you must be new here. Hi, I’m Brianna.

Ever since starting university, I have no idea why but every spring semester is significantly harder for me mentally. It could be that summer is nearing and I want to forget everything and have the time of my life – maybe. Seasonal depression? Good chance, actually. But no matter what I do, I can never seem to break myself out of that funk each spring and constantly find myself behind on assignments and having absolutely no motivation to do them.

Another PEACHY feature of this apparent seasonal spring depression is that whenever something goes wrong, I literally have to force myself to gain the effort to fix it. Take the GIF’s from my last blog post for example. Since this post was mixed in as a mini assignment for my current publishing course, I wanted to create more than what was required in the post. Show that I’m willing to go above and beyond.

Tough to show that when your “above and beyond” doesn’t even work.

The first GIF I created worked, yes. But did the other two? NO. Why didn’t they work? I DON’T KNOW. I honestly cannot tell you where I went wrong. Same format, same file size, same upload. It’s like my battle with the lower case setting for my site all over again. Just another feature of my burnout that will make things significantly more hard for myself.

How will I fix them? Easy, I will do nothing and hope it magically works itself out. If that doesn’t work, bye-bye GIF’s.

Moral of the story; I’m tired, I’m angry, I might sue WordPress just for fun at this point.

Happy end of the semester!
