All right guys,
It is WINTER!!!! I love winter with all the snow, ice, ice-skating, frost, snowmen and obviously skiing. Not that I get or get to do most of the stuff above. We barely even get snow here in England. I mean come on 😦 What is a winter without snow? Well, I know this sounds as if I am contradicting myself but I am actually nowhere near cold weather. Yep, even though I love winter I am spending my holidays in India!! YES in India, where they call winter 25 degrees Celsius. I mean seriously!!! That is nearly our summer weather in England. Anyhow, I brought a Christmas calendar, you know one of those things where you open one flap (it has a date on it) everyday and eat a small chocolate that was inside. Well what the hell was I thinking because most of my chocolate has melted so what is the point in opening those tiny doors but not being able to eat the chocolate inside them. Okay I am moving slightly off topic, but I really for once don’t know what to write except yeah!!! IT IS WINTER!! Anyway, this is a pretty much boring post, I just wanted to share my joy with you guys. Anyhow, so instead of being selfish and just writing about where I am stuff I might as well ask you?? Comment if you want to tell me what you are doing!! Hope you have a happy holiday!! 😉
It is the time you have to start getting up early again and some cases you have to wear your stupid, way-too-small uniform. It is the time of year when your free time gets reduced by which feels like a decades. You start getting homework and have to face teachers again. Already in the very first week teachers make you dive head-first into exams, essays and assignments. For me this awful time started about a term ago, because now it is already Christmas holidays!!! 🙂 Anyway, more on that in the next few posts. Back to topic, where was I again…. Oh yeah the time of hell. Can you guess when it is??
Yes you are right, it is the start of school after 8 weeks of summer holidays (in my case anyway) But for you guys it is still okay but I got it a bazillion times worse?!?! Wondering why? Well I’ll tell you… my school starts on my…wait for it…MY BIRTHDAY. How unfair is that! Well anyway, I am writing how to overcome this horrible, awful, dreadful time of year. Well I have 4 simple strategies to share with you:
- MAPAFI: I know you don’t understand it, so maybe I should decode it for you. It means: MAKE A PLAN AND FOLLOW IT!!! What I mean is restrict yourself for example say you try to finish a homework in 30 minutes (unless in some cases e.g. posters, essays, etc.) or what I found quite useful was to finish your homework the day you get them.
- TYWDO: TREAT YOURSELF WHEN DONE ONLY!!! In this case I mean treats like hanging out with friends, watching TV, playing games, etc. So what you do is simple: set yourself a goal (e.g. finish 3 homework today) and only if and when you have achieved it treat yourself.
- HOWFIS: HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS IN SCHOOL!!! I know school is an awful place for some of us but hanging out with friends catching up on the gossip and their holidays makes it a much better place. Don’t you agree?
- DFTNOS: DON’T FORGET TO NIBBLE ON SWEETIES!!! For some of us nibbling on something makes us concentrate more and also makes us more happy (in the case of chocolate). It helped and still helps me a lot.
I know this probably a lot to take in and quite a long post anyway but I hope you like it and it helps you!!! And don’t forget school gives you an education for your good and future. When you think about it this way it is honestly not that bad, right?
