COM 155

I need help to identify the purpose of the writing below.

We’ve all read a lot about stress, but Hockenbury and Hockenbury
have something new and interesting to say about it: It’s not the big life
crises but the million petty hassles we face every day that get to us. They
mention a number of different studies on hassles and their effects on us.
Two of these studies explore gender differences, and they conclude that
men and women report different kinds of daily hassles and respond to
them differently.
These studies seem to involve only married men and women, however,
which raises areas for further exploration. Do all men and women
really experience and respond to hassles differently? For example, would
unmarried male and female students be affected in the same ways that
married men and women are? In a future paper, I would like to examine
the kinds of daily hassles my college friends — both male and female —
react to and what symptoms those hassles produce. The subject of hassles
and how we react to them seems particularly relevant to students,
whose lives are full of stress.
