Hey everyone! Welcome back to the blog! Today I'm going to be taking through a typical school day.
I usually wake up between 5:45 and 6:00 am. First thing , I will get up and and make my bed. By not hitting snooze and making my bed first thing, I won't go back to sleep. Then 'll go over to my ask, meditate for a minute or two, say my affirmations, visualize, and journal. My miracle morning routine is one of my favorite parts of my day. Afterwards I'll head into the bathroom, change, and get ready for the day. Once that's done I'll get some breakfast, finish getting ready, and head out to the dor. Then t's time to catch the bus and head to ugh, school. Fast forward 7 hours of misery and I'm on the bus. I'll usually get home right around 4:30. I'll take off my shoes, chill and have a snack for about 15 or so minutes, and then head up to chickens. Sometimes I unfortunately don't have time and I will lock up a little later, but If do have time I'll let them out for a few minutes and do the evening chores. (this includes feeding the neighbors goats). Once I'm back inside it's time for the best part of the day, homework. Since I get to start at school, I'm usually done by dinner at around 6:30-6:45 ish. After I've eaten I'll workout unless it's a rest day. When I'm done I'll hop in the shower and start unwinding for the night. Do my skincare, moisturize and change into comfy clothes. Then I'll prepare for the next day, pick out my outfit and relax until around 9:00 ish when I try to get to bed, so I can get up the next day and do it all again.
Honestly, the school week is just plain exhausting. I could sleep in and not do my morning routine, I could skip the workout because I'm tired and I could not let out the girls. But I choose to despite how hard it is sometimes. School is an important part of my life. But it isn't my life, so I make decision every day to do things that make me feel good and are something that either way, I want to do. It's hard to get up every day and go somewhere where you didn't want to go. It's hard to learn things that feel pointless. It's hard to be stuck in this cycle of learning seemly just to recite information. I know that when it comes to certain jobs or school, sometimes it feels like you're not working towards anything important. But what gets me up is that I know that the important thing that I'm working towards is simply just something more important. I know someday I'll be going to school so I can get a job that I love, or working so I can support my family. I know I'll get my fair share of important reasons to go to class But for now, I'm going because I don't have choice if I want graduate. And that's ok. It can be sad, it can be frustrating, but dong little things like still practicing healthy habits on the school days just make it a little better.
