School is becoming a pain

I have nothing to write about today. I’m so mentally drained and tired that I feel i’m in a lonely simulation, just some one quietly going through the daily motions and wishing for the same thing every week, the end of it. Obviously, this is super depression, but school just isn’t as interesting anymore. It’s annoying! I miss elementary school, we’d have field day with popsicles and fun, even middle school was exciting since everyone was rowdy. Now studying and stress have engulfed us. So what is our saving grace?

Spring Break.

I am so excited for spring break. Relaxation, cleaning, reading, painting, sight seeing, all in one week. Maybe i’m insane, but i actually like cleaning. It can be a pain, but the end result is so satisfying and cleansing. I’ve always loved reading about new subjects, I can even watch a documentary if I really want to multitask. Drawing and painting has always been a passion, so now that it’s a little nicer outside, I can go out and paint the trees and the flowers. This weekend, i’m going to New York and will be able to stop by Times Square to look around.

Not only that, but i’m gonna try and work ahead. I have to order my supplies for a science project I have due in June, I have to take my drivers permit test, work on JLabs (such a pain but it’s worth it), and plan my sweet 16 (it’s supposed to be a quince, but life happened y’know?). My hopes are up for this spring break. It will be filled with things to do, but I think it will really lift my spirits and break me out of the slow, dull, school life.

Thrifting, Personal Goals, and The End of the Quarter; Ideas for April

Thrifting is not anything new. It’s basically these big donation centers where you can give anything you don’t want anymore, but don’t want to throw it away. They have things from videos, clothes, shoes, furniture, books, and so much more. I don’t know about anyone else, but I grew up thrifting. Me and my grandparents would wake up early on Saturdays and go to the yard sales around my neighborhood. They were usually hit or miss. You’d either find a bunch of brand new things or things you really want, or some old screws and an expired pop tart. Well anywho, I personally love the idea of thrifting. I usually give away my old clothes to my sister, my cousins in Guatemala, or to donation. I think it’s very eco-friendly too. This coming season, I want to shop more at thrift shops and stores like Uniqlo. Uniqlo is very ethical and sells cheap, high quality clothing. Not only that, but their clothes are very minimalistic and is loose fitting in the right places, something i very much enjoy. As for thrifting, I want to go shop at the local thrift shops more. I feel like you can find some very nice stuff there for very cheap. Need jeans? Buy some thrifted ones! Heck, if you want to spice them up you can always use fabric paint and paint something on the back pockets.

 

As for personal goals, I really want to remodel my room. When I say remodel, I mean I want everything to move. My house is a small home, but spacious for the 6 people that live there. I luckily have my own room, one downside is that it used to be a storage room and I was so desperate for my own room that I didn’t want it painted. Big mistake. It’s one of the ugliest shades of mint green ive ever seen, there random white patches, and my carpet is an ugly green too. Thankfully, my dad is really good when it comes to painting and flooring. I want to get hardwood instead of carpet, move my desk, remodel my closet, and buy a new book case. I also want to wipe out the disaster of shoes. Lucky for me, spring break is coming up! During that week im going to clean everything out and over the weekend, put in the wood and paint my walls. Hopefully my dad agrees and I can finally get a room remodelling.

 

Lastly for my April goals, I want to study more and be more on top of everything. I have my first AP test coming up in May. I’m not too scared since i’m very good at history and know a lot about it, but I want to prepare more so I can do as best as I possibly can. I also really want to get my math and science grades up. I know Bs are pretty decent grades, but I know I can do better. Another thing I struggle is being on top of things. I’d like to think i’m a pretty decent student, but I always zone off. I always doodle on everything and end up having to catch up. It’s not anything bad since i’m never that far off of the task at hand, but I hope to work on it more. Volunteering and finding a summer job is also a big priority for me since I need to get my hours up.

Hopefully, I reach my goals and i’m able improve my daily life.

December Favs!

Being that Christmas/ my birthday is right around the corner, I decided that it would be fun to talk about 5 of my favourite items this month! This is in no particular order and has no category whatsoever.

  1. ¬†Long Sleeve shirts! Long sleeves are usually always in season, but i’m confident to say that this time of year is when they’re really prevalent. I love the ones with a design on the front pocket and a huge one on the back. I usually buy them oversized so I can wear a heating long sleeve on the bottom. They’re very thin but keep you very warm, perfect to go out in without having to wear a thick jacket and you don’t have to worry about being to hot.
  2. Fuzzy socks! Ah yes, the staple to every basic girl. I love these socks since they’re basically versatile for everything.¬† You can wear them with sneakers, boots, running shoes, booties, moccasins, slides, they’re perfect to everything. Plus, they’re very nice to pair with a bland ish outfit you wish had an extra touch to spice it up.
  3. Eucerin Cream of dry skin! The colder it gets, the more cracked your skin gets. This leads to skin flaking and irritation, something that no one wants. I used this cream all the time, especially after washing my hands. The school soap isn’t very soothing and the water is so cold that my hands feel deads. After using it for a week now, I can say that I feel and see a different.
  4. Magic Mane 10 in 1 Primer! Something I also notice is that my hair looks and feels a lot duller than it usually does. Sometimes I want the summer shine that I used to have. This is possible with this hair primer that is not only a nourishing oil, but a heat protectant that cuts the hair drying time significantly. It’s perfect for someone who doesn’t want to blow 50 dollars on a small bottle of oil and someone looking for a cheap alternative.
  5. Lofi music! It’s no surprise that i’m a fan of the lowkey beats. I love listening to the long playlists when I do homework or just need to chill out. No one song is the same and it’s great to hear the distinct beats and noises certain musicians use. Not only that, but it’s so satisfying to drown out the world and just focus on the beats. It’s my favourite genre of music by far and I recommended it for people who can’t sit still when it’s dead quiet.

An Explanation

High school is the worst. You have no time for anything, have to do everything, and then blamed for doing nothing. Not only that, but having friends is hard. You either have no classes with them or you’re too busy to talk to them. Personally, I fall under this category. All my friends are so busy we rarely talk, which leave me with a lot of things to talk about. From pop culture, drama, movies, and dance, this blog is gonna become a place where I can spit out all my thoughts on current things happening. Even though it would have been a better idea to pick one topic, I realised I would have a lot more freedom having just a commentary blog.
