"If you have never experienced the “done early” high, you shouldn’t knock it. It’s a fabulous feeling to look at a beastly deadline and know that you were finished long before the midnight hour, especially when you see your colleagues slaving away at 2 a.m. in a state of panic while you head out for a Playstation tournament instead."

Thank you for the support!

I appreciate it. I figure that if I don’t have school, what else would I be doing? At this point in life, I’m not ready to face the world outside of school. There were many times (even in junior and secondary school) where I just wanted to quit and become a writer. Because of my lack of discipline and diligence, attempting to become a writer is near impossible. I need school first to train me into disciplining myself, to meet deadlines, and gain other work ethics.

The struggle is real, as my mental illnesses are. I wanted to give up many times and just have my heart stop beating. I’m still struggling with this thought. I just hope I get through this pain and move forward - not one by one, but simultaneously.

I cannot just stop everything, because the world still spins whether I stop or keep going. I cannot perfect everything I do - I’m going to have these depressing days or weeks. I cannot be afraid to get a bad mark and think of it as a reflection of my intelligence. I must keep trudging forward, bleeding, bruising, or otherwise.

I have to keep going.

In a slump, and it’s hard to get back up

You know that feeling when you just get distracted by everything in life and then you end up falling way behind in school? Well that’s me right now. It’s hard to get back up when the ground seems comfier, especially when I know I’ll be kicked down again. I’m at a point where there is just too much to handle and to catch up on.

The first week of school was great: Did my work ahead of schedule, socialized a lot, and ate very healthy. I knew I neglected sleeping but continued on, and there’s where it went downhill. I had to recover from my bad health and I wound up behind in every class. I still am, and it’s hard.

It’s just hard.
