Another day in quarantine.
I can officially say I’m going crazy. I cannot stand to be in this house anymore. It’s weird for me to say but I miss school a lot. I miss my friends, my teachers, and of course socialization. But what I miss the most is having a routine. When I was in school, I had a routine. I would wake up at the same time (6 AM), go to school for 8 hours, come home, eat a snack, take a nap, do my homework, go to the gym, do more homework, and sleep. OMG, did i forget to mention how MUCH I MISS THE GYM. I haven’t worked out in about 3 weeks and I feel sluggish and unproductive.
Part of the fact is that I’ve been pretty sick stomach wise (My dad is taking me to the hospital soon to see if there’s a bacteria in my stomach.) But now since quarantine started, I don’t have a routine and I’ve been incredibly unproductive in all the ways possible. I’ve noticed I have become very unmotivated for school and been slacking on my workload and leaving everything at the last minute. It’s unlike me because I consider myself a very attentive and bright student, but it’s been hard. It sucks because I have big dreams to enter big schools with the highest grades possibles, but how can I do that if I’m slacking off and becoming a total wuss.
It’s hard because when you’re not in a pressured environment, it's easy to leave things for the last minute. I don’t want teachers to think I’m a slack when I’m not in school and I’m trying my best to get out of this unproductive and unmotivated void. I have no excuses other than my sickness but I need to get my butt up and really figure out my life. I really need to get my life back together because if I’m constantly slacking off, then my dreams will be no more. I cannot disappoint myself, my parents, and everyone that is rooting for me. I hope that this virus dies off soon because I cannot spend another day in this house. I have stuff to do and I cannot do it in the same room. That’s enough for today!
