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:
Type down your answers in the comments!
Not-so-daintily loving you,
P.S. ‘Tis the 25th Post!
