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?

  • Those salmon chips look wowza! I’m so excited for the new series and videos!

  • I wish i was in school too sometimes 🙁 i hope the trip will be better than you anticipate.

  • I think it is fantastic you are going to be writing about your struggles with binge eating. While I cannot relate to that specifically, I know how mentally debilitating to have disordered thoughts toward food, and I am encouraged to hear you are working on it! I know you can heal through this. 🙂

    I’m sorry to hear your upcoming trip is not one you are looking forward to. I do hope it goes over smoothly, and keep your focus on the wonderful result of it. Tuition is expensive and sometimes funds are difficult to come by. In addition, maybe this could be the perfect opportunity to work on those broken relationships! It might not fix everything, but it can pave the way. Will be keeping you in my thoughts! <3

  • I have a tendency to eat everything on sight when I’m stressed out (and the time is now, m’friends! haha). 😡

    Yay for being done with high school! 😀 I have high hopes for you! I get what you mean about China–but stay strong! There are some parts of rural China that are absolutely beautiful. Are you going to be doing any sightseeing at all? Or just visiting relatives? (Sneaking in several hikes = better than nothin’, and you’d get to see pretty places/I could live vicariously through you! 😉

  • Oh gosh girl enjoy CHINA! That’s so cool! I’ve been traveling and living abroad for the past year and it’s been pretty fun to say that least.
