How my previous week went, Why leaving school might be more of a dilemma than nostalgia and some pictures.

Heya everyone!

I’m finally feeling the pressure of a high schooler. This was the busiest week I’ve had yet! Honestly, that’s the most subtle way I can possibly put it into.

My assignments have bombarded my entire to do list.

I’m physically strained due to dance practises back at school.

I haven’t had a peaceful moment.

I’m horribly exhausted.

I haven’t been able to read any book(!!!).

And for the first time in my life, I’m not exaggerating.

I don’t know how I even managed everything.

I’ve begun journaling though. It’s nice to reflect upon a day that went by.

It all went by so quickly. Also considering the fact that I was ACTUALLY at school for 4 days(for a program we’re having for the 15th of August). It’s been a really long time since I stepped onto the school ground and see some ACTUAL people who weren’t my family. It’s all so surreal, makes it difficult to digest the fact that I’d be at this wonderful place for only another 1 year (maybe more, if I chose to do my grade 11 and 12 there).

If we count our time at school as a kid, we’ve spent majority of our years there. And then growing up, we make it a part of our life journey. It’s funny how we don’t want to go to school as a little child, and when you’re a little older, you don’t want to leave it.

The reason why I think leaving school is a little more of a dilemma than nostalgia is because of the confusion you encounter. Confusion to move forward and leave a safe place. I mean safe place, because school kept us safe from the grief of growing up.

Growing up isn’t sad, but then not realizing where all that time went is. It’s all very confusing. I cannot even think about it.

But on the brighter side, there is some excitement about the future too. After all, the world is our playground! Thinking of playground, here’s our school playground. Our gorgeous playground.

…and this beautiful tree.

I also seem to have a thing for purple flowers. This little thing was creeping through the window grill.

And that’s a shoe, I guess?

And what’s even better is that I took these pictures during the golden hour. This little sapling is coming through the cracks of the bricks.

And this is my friend who is tired after a long day.

And this picture to end this post.

After that optimistic, philosophical chit-chat, I think I’d rather get back to my reality. There are still assignments that await me, ahem-

I know this post was short, but you at least got them pictures!

And, I almost forgot, the question-of-the-post:

How did your week go? Was it busy or were you at peace?

Type down your answers in the comments!

Not-so-daintily loving you,

Divi <3

P.S. ‘Tis the 25th Post!

  1. “Growing up isn’t sad, but then not realizing where all that time went is.” Wow! Why is this so painful and hard-hitting? It’s a powerful line, full of bitter truth.
    I missed my last year of school due to covid 😢 So this is pretty relatable.
    All the very best for your exams! 💖

  5. Divi, this post spoke to my soul… The thought about leaving school is very terrifying and the future is just so abstract.
    I haven’t gone to my school in quite some time, and I miss it so very much. I wish schools reopen soon :)
    My! What an outstanding photographer you are! I love how you capture those little things that we seem to overlook😊
    Don’t worry, hopefully, the upcoming week will be more relaxing!!
    Keep up the good work! <3

    1. It is, very abstract, yes. It seems like a countdown, as and when I’m finishing a grade. But we all have better things to hope for.
      Thank you so much, I just make some attempts to capture little things and I’m happy that it is being loved!
      I hope so too, maith, a better week! I really need it.
      I hope you have a wonderful week ahead maith <3

  6. Divi!!! Yes, that’s sooo true. I’m so upset about leaving school in 2 years that I prefer not to think about it. Schools are opening here soon. Hopefully Mr Covid let’s us enjoy these years.

    And my oh my, what a great photographer you are!

    1. Oh, tenth grade huh? Sad :c
      Oh that’s a relief, I see some news here and there of our schools opening too, but I think that’s far from reality. All we can do is hope for the best.
      OMG, you legit(I’m using that word too often) liked them? Thank you, sep!
      I hope you have a wonderful week!

  7. This has to be one of the most relatable posts I’ve read in a long time, Divi! I completely empathize with the fact that school IS rather hectic & your pictures are so pretty – they look very professional! I really miss going to school every day, too. Well, here’s hoping you have a great week ahead – probably one with less stress :))
