Recently I have been in a huge slump. I haven’t been productive, my grades have kind of slipped but I am already redeeming myself, I have been SUPER stressed over everything, and I have been sick recently. This slump has happened to me before, but not this bad. At the beginning of this semester I promised myself that I would not let senioritis control me and that I would be productive till the very end. Well that was a fat lie to myself. Throughout my life I have always a hard time admitting that I’m not actually ok. Whenever I’m sick during an important part of the school year then I try to convince myself that I can just push through and it’ll turn out alright, but what ends up happening is I end up sicker and longer than I originally would have been. It’s a vicious and unhealthy cycle that I can’t seem to stop.
So how do I get out of this slump? I actually don’t really know. Life is full of the phrase “Fake it till you make it!”, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m gonna fake being ok until I am actually ok. I don’t mean this is a negative way. I’m not gonna become a hermit and I’m not gonna build a wall, but I’m gonna smile even when I don’t feel like smiling. I’m gonna plan what I’m gonna do cause that’s the only way I get things done.
A couple of YouTube channels that I’ve been watching for help on productivity and getting out of slumps are Lavendaire and Rowena Tsai. They are my two favorite YouTube channels and I love them SO MUCH!!! I literally just binge their videos when I need inspiration and motivation. I highly recommend them!
That’s it for this week guys. Have a great day and week! Goodbye!!!
Hello people!! Today is a pretty hefty topic that everyone has to deal with. Senioritis is a VERY real thing, and I am currently living it. I have a little more than a month left till graduation, and I AM SO DONE WITH SCHOOL! I’m ready to leave and never return, but I can’t. I have to push through and toughen up. I would like to think that I have my life together, but I actually don’t. My room is messy, my health is not that great, and my relationship with myself and friends is not the best. I have become a hermit in my mind, which is not the best. I’ve found it hard to function without Dunkin on the daily (yes I am serious, it’s a problem).
I told myself today, as I was sitting on the choir room floor playing PUBG, that I was gonna get out of this funk and that I WILL BE PRODUCTIVE! So this is where I’m starting by blogging. Look forward to my journey of coming out of senioritis funk cause it’ll be a long one. I believe that there is a light at the end of this tunnel and that it's coming up soon. See yall later!!
I will call them my people, who were not my people; and her beloved, who was not beloved. -Romans 9:25
