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!!!
