Hello, watchers! The reason I stopped doing weekly journals is because I felt like I was repeating a lot of stuff and including unnecessary details, so from now on, I'll just post one every month.
Before I went back to school, which includes the majority of August excluding the last week, I was relatively happy/content. I was mostly listening to Klaypex and Hurts during that time period. Plus, I was watching a lot of episodes of my favorite shows and was actually looking forward to school, like every year. My things were ready to go in my new backpack and I got some new clothes, too.
However, when school started (on the last week of August), my spirits slowly diminished. Half of the time, I was alone, as I don't have a ton of friends, and the ones that are my friends aren't always in my class. Also, I already had homework. The beginning of that first week was just not very good. One morning, I even woke up with just a pit in my stomach and felt sick of school. Usually, I don't cry, but sometimes, I'll be sad and my eyes will grow watery, on the verge of tears. That happened due to school.
By the end of the week, though, things were slightly better. Taking a step back from all the work I had to do, I saw that it wasn't that bad. It was possible, all of it, just challenging. This year is and will be so different from all previous years. I'm gonna have to step out of my comfort zone a lot more. This is my Confirmation year, religiously speaking, and possibly my last year in high school. The only reason I'm glad summer is over is weather-wise. I can't wait for cooler temperatures (and fall/winter break).
Now, things like watching television or listening to music is relaxing, esp. after having done a bunch of work. I try to finish all my homework in time everyday to be able to watch my favorite shows, but sometimes I don't, and have to put it off to watch it on demand another day. It doesn't really help that all the fall shows are about to premiere and I have a lot I want to watch.
On another note, I am really excited about the new Doctor Who series. Although I don't have cable and I can't watch it, that doesn't stop me from being hyped for it and Peter Capaldi. I won't watch it illegally, though, so I have to avoid the spoilers until I can watch it legally. In my government class, the teacher saw a TARDIS art piece that I did (I will submit this as a deviation sometime in the future, after I've posted the ones I like a bit less) and asked what my favorite Doctor is. I answered Eleven, and he agreed, too. He then asked me about the premiere, to which I said I hadn't seen it yet. Nevertheless, that small moment made my day. The day before, he was lecturing and referenced how our government is a democracy, meaning we're not Cybermen. As for other Doctor Who related stuff, I saw this girl with a TARDIS dress and overheard some people talking about the show.
Another thing is that I have braces now (along with my brother, so we share the experience), which are so annoying, but I'm getting used to it. That's something else besides school that I know dislike - eating, brushing my teeth, flossing, and pretty much anything to do with my teeth/mouth.
Today is Labor Day, which means I have school off. I really need this to recollect myself, finish some homework, and get ready for school tomorrow. Here's hoping everything goes well!
