Body Shaming: Too Skinny, too Fat…too DAMN Judgmental?


Play, Repeat, Repeat

It’s been almost 3 hours. I’ve had this song on repeat that entire time, and I still can’t get enough of it. The music seems to hypnotise me in a magical, inexplicable way, and I love it.
Until next time, organise your playlist, enjoy your music, make sure you don’t damage your hearing whilst doing so, and keep blogging.

Actual Fun

So I actually had some fun today. We had a school trip and it was nice. I hurt my hands on the monkey bars and swings (yeah, the 5-year-old in me went wild), so I can’t type much. It was a great hair day for me as well. As I said, I can’t type properly, so I’ll keep it brief; I’m sorry about that.
My arms are bruised, and I can’t move my legs, but it’s worth it.
Today was fun. I needed that. So until next time, don’t take your hands for granted, go out and have some fun, push that swing as high as you can (without falling off), and keep blogging!

Abrupt Update

Okay, maybe I should cut down my coffee consumption. It’s almost bed time for me and I feel like monkey on crack. I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep tonight, shit, and I’m one of those people whose entire day gets fucked over if their sleep schedule is disrupted. It’s not as easy as it seems – not drinking coffee – BECAUSE LIKE HAVE YOU TASTED COFFEE? SMELLED COFFEE? SEEN THE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE AROMATIC GRANULES FALL GRACEFULLY INTO THAT MUG OF YOURS ONLY TO GET DISSOLVED BY STEAMY WATER AND MAKE UP THE MOST SATISFYING THING YOUR TASTE BUDS WILL EXPERIENCE?

That was the coffee speaking. Ugh, self-advertising on my blog. Who does it think it is, that attractive little seducer? NO. STOP. CUT IT OFF. DAMN.
It’s confirmed. No sleep tonight…
Lads and ladettes of WordPress, I bid you farewell.

For The First Time In A Long While

Only after I’d finished lunch did it occur to me that today was a special day. For the first time in literally two damned weeks, I have nothing to study for, nothing to prepare, nothing to stress about for tomorrow. Days like these I sit back and think to myself what kind of things I can do during this study-free afternoon. You’re going to laught at this, or possibly think I’m whacko, but the first thing that came to my mind was “hey, why don’t you start studying for that Biology exam you have on Friday?”
I mean, I was just talking about how relieved I am that I have nothing to study, yet here I am, thinking about studying.

I gave myself a relaxing bath with chocolate-scented handmade soap from Beesline, pampering almond hair conditioner, and aromatic cammomile shampoo. It was nice. Totally needed that.
I will try to cover some concepts concering my Biology test, but I really do miss reading, and I haven’t listened to music for more than 10 minutes ina a while, so I guess I’ll fetch my headphones, turn up the volume on my AC/DC playlist, and just chill. Before I go to sleep I’ll manage a few chapters of the book I left aside two weeks ago and experience that adrenaline rush it gives me.
I don’t know where to go with this. I had some ideas to write about during class today when my mind wandered off a bit and came to WordPress, so I’ll prepare a few posts when I have the time.
This is it for now. I’m…happy. So until next time, enjoy the moments of free time you get, stay in touch with what you love, pamper yourself, work/study hard, and keep blogging!

Pretty Much Sums It Up

Ah, blogging; the food of the soul. I’ve been off for a week, damn.
This is literally the first day this week that I don’t have shit to do. Actually, I do have to study, but I’ll manage that tomorrow. I need a fucking break.
I’ve made some changes this week, first of which is resuming my workout plan. It’s been around 2 months since I stopped following that plan, and I feel like a slug. I was so satisfied with my body at that time that it felt like it’ll never change again, yet here I am 2 months later looking at myself in the mirror and weeping in regret.
Ah, anyway, I also cut my hair yesterday. My hair’s grown so much longer over the past year, but everything has its price. With great length comes great agony in the form of tangled, dry ends which had to be trimmed off.
Stuffed sinuses, dry throat, nocturnal asthma attacks, loads of nasal mucus, and many many tissue boxes to consume; what a time to be alive.
I’m still breathing. From my mouth. Because my nose is fucking congested.
So I’ll cut the drama here and say the usual: have a beautiful, mucus free weekend, take care of your body, pamper yourself, and keep blogging.

Testing Trauma

Today was the first time I took the Official SAT, and I’m worn out. I’d taken a model SAT at school under the same conditions and everything, but that was just to familiarize myself with the actual test, and needless to say, I wasn’t half as worried then as I was today.

Besides the quite-normal pre-test nerves and jumpiness, the weather at the test center was rather cold. I did not expect such a cold breeze there, so I wore a light shirt and jeans. Consequently, I froze my ass off during the test and shivered uncontrollably.

The English section had everything I’d been practicing and expected to encounter, and the Math section was relatively easier than what I’d practiced at home, but I got nervous during the test, and my mind sort of shut down at the cold weather, so I couldn’t think straight and took more time than usual on some questions, which meant I did not have enough time to complete some others.

I can take the test again as many times as I want as long as it’s before 2016 because the format will have changed by then, and I’m not prepared for the new version, but I can’t say I’m not pissed I didn’t do a great job. I have college goals in mind, so I need high scores, and I can’t get those of my brain shuts down every fucking time.

I have a headache, and I’m hungry. I’ll leave it at this.

Until next time, practice keeping your brain alert, prepare emotionally for upcoming tests, work hard for your goals whatever they are, and keep blogging.
