Dang dude, how have you gotten this far? I'd have an ulcer by now for sure. Physical activity does wonders for stress and/or depression.
The only thing that helped me with stress was:
1. running down the clock. procrastinating, sleeping, otherwise wasting time, or even study until the last moment. Then shrug your shoulders and say well, i did all I could..
2. Reason myself into a fake sense of superiority over my fellow classmates. But then again, I was an engineering student and all of our tests were objective and curved..
This might help:
In college it is hard to realize: that 99.9% of what you do on a day to day basis in school will NEVER affect your future life in the real world.
My only regrets regarding college have to do with not partying more, not getting better grades. Oh, and it would have been nice to actually learn more rather than just to cram neccessary exam fodder in my head. But perspective is a bitch aint it?
