It’s 7:14 PM Wednesday and for the first time since school started I feel happy and content. 🙂
Sure, I still have homework to do, but I finally realized that taking a break is just as important as getting (most) of your work done.
The last 5 weeks have been just plain torture!!!! There was work, there were tests, vocab revisions, more work, dance classes, presentations,…. It started to get so bad that I felt like I didn’t have anything to look forward to anymore and I would wake up in the morning unmotivated and just plain depressed. It effected my school performance, and I was having real trouble sleeping too. I would go to bed at 11 PM and wake up at 5 AM, tossing and turning in between.
That was when someone who knows me really, really well, more or less, forced me to take a break and just relax!!!!! At first I couldn’t really do it. My mind kept going over today’s work, making to-do lists and thinking about the upcoming lessons and Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah OVERLOAD!!!
So then I started writing down my free-time in my calendar, e.g. Monday 5 PM FREE TIME and the moment the clock strikes 5 I HAVE TO stop what I’m doing, drop the freakin’ pen and chiiiill.
I do this on a few different days as well and I’m prohibited (nice word, eh?) to study after dinner. Honestly I haven’t felt better in a looooooooooooooooooooooooooong time………………. I finally start sleeping better and I actually
almost enjoyed myself in school today!!! (I know O.o)
Seriously, if you feel like your head is about to implode at any moment now, here is my advice: Stop. Drop. Roll into bed and don’t forget to smell the flowers on the way!!!
Ok so this might be the most cheesiest ending ever 😛
Have a wonderful relaxing day!!!!! 😉
