Countdown: Seven Days.

(These shoes have absolutely nothing to do with school. I just felt like entertaining you all by taking a picture of my some of my heels highest to lowest haha.)

Well, I have seven more days left of freedom. No everyone, I am not going to jail but something close to it: school. Okay, well maybe I exaggerate a bit. It's really not that bad. Or is it? Think back to your days of high school. High school is where beauty gets you everything and grades get you no where. It's where the school lunches are almost as scary as AP Chemistry. It's where I will be spending most of my time for the next nine months.

Sigh. It's not that I hate school. I really don't. It's just that it is so time consuming and thoroughly exhausting. I get worn out just thinking about it. I go to school for eight hours and come home, get a snack and do homework for another six hours.I give myself Friday evening and Saturday to relax, and then it's homework and studying all day Sunday. Monday it's the same thing starting over again. Summer is so fantastic because I have all the time in the world to relax and do what I want.

I guess I'm especially upset to go back this year because I've gotten so into blogging lately. When I start school, I won't be able to go to all sorts of inspiring places to take outfit shots anymore. Outfit pictures will start to resume to be taken in my uninspiring front yard. Also, for probably about an hour or so each day I try and take time to read and comment on all sorts of blogs and reply back to all of your comments. With so much homework every night I fear that I won't have time to take pictures, do a post, reply to comments, post comments, read blogs, AND get an outfit ready for the next day.

I'm just really scared and sad I guess. My passion is going to be taken away from me and I don't have a choice. Also, this summer I've gone on so many wonderful thirfting adventures to garage sales, rummage sales, estate sales, and thrift stores that I won't be able to when school starts.

For now I HAVE to just enjoy the summer I have left and live for the moment. I picked up my school schedule today and here's the classes I'm taking:

1.Pre Calculus.
2. Studio Jewelery: Half Year Course.
2. Economics: Half Year Course.
3. Spanish III.
4. Advanced English 11.
5. Symphonic Band.
6. Physics.
7. AP Government and U.S. Politics.

Whew, it's gonna be a tough year! I have a feeling that Physics and Pre Calc are going to give me the most trouble. I am SUPER duper excited to be taking Studio Jewelery though, which is a jewelery making class :) Oh, and my school makes us take Economics and Government, so I really didn't have a choice :( And perhaps you didn't know I was in band? Haha I play the trumpet!

Hope everyone is doing well! I really, really appreciate all of your comments on the last post! It was one of my favorites up to date!

P.S. HOMECOMING DRESS UPDATE. It came today in the mail. Yes, this would be the point where I add a bunch of exclamation marks after that sentence along with about a dozen smiley faces. However, a dress from Modcloth came today, but it was not the one I ordered. They sent me the wrong dress!! :( I was very disappointed, but we are sending the wrong dress back and Modcloth is using the express shipping to ship me MY dress. It should be here Wednesday!

love the picture of your shoes. I love high heels! It sucks that they sent your the wrong dress, but at least you know it's on its way.

Also, thank you so much for your support on my last post. Being married is hard work, and I guess I had stopped putting in the effort. That and also, I was 16 when I met my husband and we've both changed a lot over the last 10 years, but we're both committed to making it work, and hopefully it will.

Ugh I had a HORRIBLE experience with AP Gov because of my teacher and Spanish III too. I hope these classes are going to be fabulos for you though!

I know its going to be hard juggling between blogging and school but you can do it :)! AND HURRAY FOR HOMECOMING DRESS (even though its the wrong one...but hurray for the soon to come homecoming dress)!

I understand how you feel.. I like school and stuff, it's just taking up so much time! I really admire you for your "relax fri and sat" thing, I wish I had the same self control!!

Mary said...

I completely know what you mean-- especially in the past few days, I've had absolutely zip time to myself to do anything besides get ready to move back to school and pack. But you'll eventually get into a new swing of things and it won't seem to terrible-- you may even have more time than you originally thought you would! Plus, the important thing about high school is to experience and enjoy it, and it sounds like you've got a great year ahead! That jewelry making class sounds awesome!

Sara said...

Awww I feel you on school. I start in two weeks, and it's work and school full time. I spend most Friday nights inside, on the computer or reading. So lame.

I can't wait to see your homecoming dress, hooray for ModCloth! :)
