Yep, it’s cold and flu season. Yayyy… Don’t you just love going to school and being surrounded by thousands of people coughing and sneezing all over the place? Oh, and then the dreaded morning you wake up with a sore throat and stuffy nose. Soooo much fun. Anyway, in case you haven’t noticed by now I’m am sick, but unlike anyone else who’s sick I can’t miss school because my high school does exemptions, but I already have two absences, so I cannot stay home and take any sick days. Also other than the fact that I can’t take any more sick days, it’s also the week before semester exams, so I kinda need to be at school to take all my final tests and quizzes of the semester. With it being cold and flu season I am sure that I’m not the only one who is sick, so here’s are my tips on how to survive school while being sick.
Sunday, one of the few days a week we get to relax and unwind… sorta. Over the years I’ve grown to almost dread Sundays. Getting up early for church, cramming to finish any weekend homework, dreading going back to school, yeah it’s not exactly my favorite day of the week. However, I’ve learned that if you plan out your day properly and do some certain things, Sunday can actually be decent and can help you feel relaxed and prepared for the upcoming week. So, here are my suggestions for things to do to relax and prepare for the new week.
It’s the most wonderful time of year… or is it? Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved Christmas time. The lights, the music, the food, hot cocoa, family, friends, gifts, volunteering, everything that is the magic of Christmas time. As I get older it becomes easier to forget about the fun and joy of Christmas time because I get so caught up in the stress that also comes with the season and with being a high school student. So, to get back in the Christmas spirit and to make the most of these 25 days until Christmas, I decided to make a bucket list full of fun Christmas activities.
Thanksgiving break has just ended and now we’re jolted back to the harsh reality of high school. To make things even worse there are only 3 weeks left of this semester and only two weeks left before finals. So basically in my first week back I have to deal with band auditions, region band auditions (for those not in band, yes they are different things), a band concert and an FFA rabbit raising clinic in the same night, a chemistry quiz, and I’m pretty sure an English project… eek. So, as you can imagine I’m just a teeny tiny bit stressed, and I have a tendency to not be the most pleasant person to be around when I’m stressed, so I have some methods of helping to manage my stress. I figured these could possibly be useful methods for everyone with the craziness of the end of the semester and exams coming up.
