The above is an exerpt from Dictionary.com's definition of stress. While the dictionary company here is correct in its example of stress, I could also volunteer some from my own personal experiences of the last week.
"The application for the residency was incomplete due to holds put on his account and he could therefore not get a copy of his transcripts. This placed undue stress on him."
"Not knowing where he'd be in less than two months due to a bumbling SPEP coordinator placed him under great stress."
"Twenty five group meetings and as many deadlines all within short notice made his hair start to fall out due to stress."

My only stress will be worrying how to get the sand out of the crevices it got itself into, or maybe how to get another drink without getting up. Ahhh, vacation.
