As School Winds Down…

Live life free. Fly high.

School’s out, scream and shout!

This semester I luckily only had 2 exams, both of which I’m done now. One was English and the other was music theory. I’m now officially done with high school. Who would’ve thought?! I still remember the first day of grade 9, thinking about this day.

So how that I have 6 more hours of my day to myself, what am I doing?

Well, there’s SO MANY things I actually want to do in the very near future:

Yup, I struggle hard with binge eating, but let’s save that for another post, shall we?

On top of that, I also work at Chipotle. As School Winds Down, I have a lot more time to spare to workout. And sleep. And eat. And chill out with a gratitude(be bored). Here are some things that’s been on my mind lately about how I should spend my newfound time…

As school winds down… I have more time to exercise. I’d no longer feel rushed in the mornings to prep food, sweat, then rush out the door to make sure I’m not late for my first period class. I can leisurely workout for over an hour if I so chose to either running, walking or doing yoga. :) whoop whoop! I love having more time to do the things I love. The question is if this will actually happen.

 

As school winds down… I have time to sleep more! Will I? My family doesn’t sleep until 10pm and always wakes up at 8am regardless, so I doubt I’d get any more sleep than I already am, being that they’ll wake me up. But it does give me the freedom to sleep in because there isn’t any obligation for me to be anywhere.

As school winds down… I am going to China. I haven’t mentioned this on my blog before, but for the month of July, I’ll be in China for 3 weeks. I have to go with my mother to pick up some sort of education fund(and apparently I have to be present to pick it up–but why? To prove I’m alive?) And I don’t know how much but I know it’ll help pay for university, and that’s important to me! I’m studying theatre and my parents aren’t very supportive of my dreams to be a performer on film and stage. Unfortunately, going back to China also means I will be visiting unpleasant family members and also dealing with my mom 24/7. We have a toxic relationship and my relatives in China are no better. I will also be forced to break my keto-paleo diet and instead eat all the develish carbs(guh!) And I’d miss exercise. No running, HIIT, nothing exciting like that, and not to mention the pollution and heat is terrible in China. I hate to bash my home country like this, but nothing about it is appealing to me. At all.

As school winds down… I have more free time. I’m not sure if this is a blessing or a curse, because I realize I do enjoy having a work schedule that I can plan my other activities around and that was school. When I have too much time on my hands, I often turn to food to get out of bordem. It’s a work in progress; a habit that I’ll one day break along with my binge eating.

I get a little snacky-snacky…

 

As school winds down… I realize I still prefer to wake up early. Maybe not as early as i did for school like around 6am, but I still prefer to get my errands done before most of the world wakes up. Once that happens I feel like I can finally settle down(but at the same time I need to find a way to entertain myself without getting bored). When the world wakes up, everything feels too busy, too loud, and I fear being left behind. I feel i have to compete. When I’m done before everyone else, I feel at ease. Is anyone else like this?

As school winds down… the summer heat goes up. And we all know what that means. BEACH PARTY!!! STAYING AT HOME AND LIVING IN THE FREEZER HAHA. I’m actually contemplating ordering this:

I’m not kidding! I’ll wear this like I wear my skin. This IS my skin.

And I’m going to end this all by saying that,

As school winds down… I’ll be using my new Erin Condren Life Planner. I want my summer to be successful, especially with the things I’ve been going through lately. I’ve set up goals and I’m going to attain them, and it’s perfect for the fall when my university courses start.

They are really beautiful life planners that you write in and plan out your day/month/LIFE. I have a $10 off coupon, just CLICK HERE and register! They are pretty expensive, so I hope that it’d be motivation enough for me to uphold the plans I write in them! I spent over $160 in total for shipping and accessories and they’re on their way. :)

What do you do as school winds down? What are the pros and cons of a super flexible and leisure schedule?

I Ran. A Half Marathon.

I RAN A HALF MARATHON. OH MY GOD I AM FREAKING OUT. I went out today with the intention of just running 14k, which was 2k less than what I did last week. Little did I know my body was capable of pushing so far, of doing so well. The longer I spent on my feet the faster I felt myself become, and when I saw 18k approach on my Fitbit, I said, why not push 3k more for a half marathon?

My PromPosal Story

It all started at lunch. Suddenly, "Chariots of Fire" started playing over the PA system and I saw from around the corner of the hall a guy who was running in slow motion with a group of people behind him cheering in silence. I didn't recognize Daniel at first, but as he got closer I wondered what on earth he was doing. I figured it was some sort of flash mob advertisement for The 30 Hour Famine movement going on soon at our school a movement both myself, him, and a group of friends were participating in(it's a movement to raise awareness for hungry children) and for just a split second I thought it was odd for Daniel to have volunteered to make such a scene in public; he was the shy type of guy. Halfway through he grabbed fake pink flowers from a guy and everyone in the hall(who was in on the prank) took out their phones and I thought it was because they wanted to capture the weirdness happening while it was still happening. Streamers were thrown around in the hall and one of them landed on me. As The song came close to an end, Daniel awkwardly ripped open his shirt to reveal a white t-shirt with pink text:
