Let me just start off by saying this: There is nothing more that I would want to do right now than sleep. The whole half yearly stretch involved me waking up at 5:15 in the morning and quickly going through all of my syllabi. And it then involved me going to bed at 10 in the night. If you know me or even if you don’t, here’s one thing that has never change about me in my life- I love sleeping. A bit too much.
Back to reality, I am faced with the challenge of keeping myself awake while also standing by my promise of blogging every day for the next two weeks or so. I’m not really sure what exactly I’m going to be blogging about, but I am absolutely sure that I’m going to be collaborating with a lot of (actually, just three) people. Keep looking for guest posts, guys.
I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to write until then, so let me just talk about my day at school.
My exams finished today. Yay!
Believe me when I say that I have never been so worried about exams in my entire 10-year life as a student. Ever. There’s something about writing an exam in 9th grade that makes me want to curl into a ball and sleep away. And sleep is something that I did not have much of, this exam season.
Anyway, so I was worried about my exams, and then I was worried that I was worried, and obviously, my thoughts spiraled from there. One word that I use to describe my life a lot is hopeful despair, (that’s 2 words), and that is exactly how I felt for the last two weeks.
It’s not that I am bad at studies, I am one of the toppers of my class, but something made me feel very anxious about the whole situation.
I dunno. Has this ever happened to you? And what did you do to change? Lemme know in the comments below.
Books that I’m currently reading:

What books are you engrossed in right now? I’d love to hear some suggestions from you 🙂
This is going to be an amazing experience for me, and I hope to see your love and support through this journey! Thanks a lot.
