Mourning Routine of a School Girl

Well

I’m a student.

I know, I know what you’re thinking.

You’re shocked, you’re confused, and you’re horrified. Don’t worry, so am I.

And yet, I still have another seven years I get to undergo.

I digress, as a High School student, a school girl-a lernin’ child, I have a weird morning routine.

AS IN

I don’t have one at all; but I do have a mourning routine before I start school-and I do kind of have solutions to my mourning routine-and for you if you have one similar, too.

MOURNING SCHEDULE OF A SCHOOL LERNIN’ GIRL

STAGE ONE

So like any normal lernin’ child, I start the mourning off with subtle dread, before the process starts. It looks a little like a dying cat, but with the flourish of a ballerina.

You know that feeling, that feeling you get where you’re trying to get yourself to do something but you can’t do something, because, well, you can’t.

Now, this stage is a pretty big stage, and it can be hard to hit. It may be level one of a boss battle, but then, when it comes to the Mourning Stages of  Learnin’ Child-everything is ten times worse.

As stated before, if I catch it in enough time, I do have a solution to this problem of mine.

It starts with a little reward and a little bit of time management.

I highly suggest starting off with an alarm. Set the alarm for a certain period of time (perhaps one hour), and reward yourself with something small, like maybe a chapter in the book your reading (but not video games, those can pull you so far in).

STAGE TWO

So, you’ve manage to completely skip the dying cat stage. Somehow, you’ve managed to completely procrastinate your way through it-maybe you used my tips. That’s okay, I oftentimes manage to rationalize that, if I allow myself just a little bit more time, I’ll work longer next time. Hex, I’ll go as far as completely rebooting my system just to avoid having something block my search results.

I don’t know why, I’m just desperate to do something-anything different from school.

So you’ve hit stage two, and really, this is where things get tricky, considering there are only three notable stages of a mourning schedule.

So, stage two, the stage that seems impossible, you’ve done the above, or else you’ve managed nap right through the amount of time you should be awake-and welcome to the crunch time.

But of course, you could really use a nap to…so here’s my advice for you.

Pack up your books, because it’s time to leave what you know behind.

It’s best to find a new spot to study-a place you don’t know like the back of your hand-but know well enough. Drop yourself there, plug in a playlist, and get started. You might find yourself distracted at first, but using the same advice from above, and possibly making it a bit more of an enjoyable experience by treating yourself to a special drink and/or snack.

And for the Final Stage

Well, welcome to the end game of all stages. This stage-this final boss battle, it’s the most painful. This is where you’ve managed to do the above, all the while being half-asleep at the same time. And so here you are, minutes away from class. I know what you’re thinking.

There’s no hope here.

You’ve been defeated.

You’re in the final mourning stage, their’s no help, and you’re not awake.

Well grab your coffee and dark chocolate, and have a seat.

Writing things down helps to kick things into your brain, even while on autopilot. Put on Sims music or another game of your choice, and get started. Write every important piece you find on ONE notecard, and at the end of it all, read it. In your autopilot mode, read the notecard. Now, take a quick five minutes to walk, review the notecard, write down the information again, and, above all.

Different Stages of Studying

Hey guys, HaziWords here bringing you your-no, I keep trying to go back to my old introduction.

Heaven help us all I’m a bit uncreative in those terms *bangs head on desk*.

Anywho (yes, indeed, to stray away from anyway, I’m going to anywho-the change, right?!), studying has always been a bit difficult for me, and honestly, I really struggle at being motivated for it, and when I am, it’s watching a video on someone studying or talking about studying problems-when I’m not at home and my schoolwork is. (Online home school problems).

So, anyhow, I give you the different stages of studying.

1. Getting started.

The motivation I got, it’s on a whole different level, I treat these lines like court dates, I don’t want to settle.-NF/Motivated

For like, twenty minutes, I’m so determined that determined doesn’t describe me.

For twenty minutes, I got my music, my gum, my ten different colored pens. For twenty minutes, I’m Rory Gilmore reading a book.

2. Maybe I should just check my emails.

Even though I checked them before I got started.

Come to think about it, I should probably check my hangouts.

And the news. For all we know, the world could he coming to an end, and I didn’t know.

Huh, I should see- hey a new wattpad story!

Maybe I should write my own story.

I mean, thirty minutes won’t kill me. Infact, they say it will help improve my writing skills.

Oh crud! Two hours have passed?!

Right, back to studying.

But now I’m out of water, and I’m hungry.

Should I make ramen for lunch, or just grab some Cheezits…

3. Auto-Pilot.

Right, so let’s see…what the hex?! Why do I have questions about beach sand and desert sand?!

This is what I have to learn in school?!

Man, I could learn more watching The Princess Bride.

Sheesh.

OKAY, FOCUS.

I wonder what different Egypt myths they have.

Maybe I could write a story based off of it.

*Somehow answers all ten questions whilst plotting a whole story.*

4. OH SUGAR COOKIES

No.

Don’t keep that answer.

I was wrong.

Delete that.

Forget about it.

No.

Oh sugar cookies.

I failed.

I’m a failure.

My world is coming to an end.

This is it.

How will I make it into college?!

I’ll fail.

I’ll never make it.

5. Whatever

You know what

Sugar cookie this.

Sugar cookie all of you.

Who wrote this?!

Are they even qualified to write courses.

You know what

Whatever

Forget this.

I don’t need school anyway.

*Takes test again, studies, somehow, but the miracle of God, passess.*

What?!

Well I knew I could do this.

I’m brilliant.

I’ll take the world by storm.

I’ve got the power.

I’ve got-oh sugar cookies.

The laundry.

The ever-going girl,
