Break Time

I’m finally on break from school. After this week I definitely need it. I plan on making the most of my time off, editing, writing, drawing etc. I’m glad I can finally take a breather. Only two months to go until school is over. Woo!

Hopefully I can get ahead on some of my readings for school as well, while I’m off…and fix my sleep schedule. No more staying up till 3 am. It can’t be good for anyone to be staying up past midnight and then get up early in the morning.

Until next time,

Welcome to November!

I’m grateful for the week I had off from classes, because without it I feel as though I’d be a complete mess right now. I just kept saying to myself, “It’s almost reading break. It’s coming. The end is near. Just three essays, two exams and you’re free!” and somehow I managed to survive.

I kept getting sick during that time. I think I was so stressed and overwhelmed that my body began to react. I had constant headaches, and nausea. Never happened to me before…but after all of the stuff I’ve been through since last April…boy. I’m lucky I didn’t just snap and tear my hair out.

I managed to do a lot of writing and artwork over the break. I even got to work on my music, which was a lot of fun. I enjoy goofing around with my piano and guitar when I think no one is home…my sister screamed, “Shut up!” after about fifteen minutes. I was jokingly singing Chandelier…but it turned into a screamo edition and I sang “I want to screeeeeeam!” instead of “I want to swing.”

Anyway, you probably didn’t need to know that but basically I’m doing a lot better. I don’t feel like I’m a zombie anymore, I haven’t had any nausea or headaches, and things have been a lot less stressful back home. Plus, now school is settling down a bit…it’ll be busy again in a week or two but at least right now I can pace myself and get my head in the right place.

I guess I’d never been so stressed out in my life. I let it all build up from April. I refused to let myself crack…and then finally I just broke down. Which sucks because here and there I was finding myself slowly crumbling after trying to build myself back up. That’s why I’m glad that I had a week where I didn’t have to worry so much about school, or friends or anything and I could just catch up on sleep, draw and write and relax. I needed that break. I know if I had kept trying to push myself I’d have completely shut down. I usually try to be a very optimistic person but that side of me just vanished. I feel a lot more like myself these days. I’m goofing around with my friends again, I’m reading in my spare time (even though all I do is read for class), and I’ve set some goals for myself that I’d like to meet by my last exam date in December.

So, November I welcome you with open arms. I’m in good spirits despite the cold weather and the rain. Although I tend to write a lot of very depressing poetry in the winter (according to my creative writing professor), I will try to write something…warm and fuzzy. Not corny. Warm and fuzzy. Like…a nice blanket or a fluffy animal or some sort.

This was longer than usual.

Till next time,

Schools out…and it’s snowing?

Wow everybody seems to be leaving residence today. No wonder it’s so noisy…

I really hope that I’m not the last kid moving off this floor because this place will be so lonely tomorrow. I’ve already moved out a bunch of stuff anyways. I was smart and decided to break it up so that we wouldn’t have to move out 9 am on a Friday.

This year went by so fast… I’m currently cram studying for my English exam because I spent more time studying for history which was on Monday. I love seeing how much information I actually remembered throughout the year. I’ve got a pretty great memory. I’m proud of my brain. It is a great brain. I’d like to kiss it for being awesome.

I bought myself a club sandwich, chips and a kitkat…because I’m on my break right now (Haha…I’m probably the only one laughing at that pun).

I’m so glad schools over. Can someone please get back to me about the 30 plus jobs I’ve applied for. I’m an active volunteer in my community, a good student and I work well both independently and with others. I’m a quick learner and I’m respectful of others. I have experience working with people of all ages and I enjoy being productive.

UGH! This is why living in a small town sucks. Maybe I’ll apply in the city after all…

Why is it snowing? Yesterday hail…today snow. Why Canada? Why…?
