It’s August 13th and, I must admit, I am more than ready for school to begin. I’ve been off from school for nearly two months. I had a nice break. I’ve read a great deal, watched a good TV show (Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street), and helped my mom prepare for school. I didn’t think I’d be able to do it, but I’ve let myself relax and really enjoy these last few weeks.
Yet, even though I loved the break, I love school even more. I can’t wait to dig into this new school year. I have a great feeling about this year. I hope it lives up to my expectations. I want it to be absolutely perfect, but I know that’s impossible. 🙂
Even if perfection isn’t attainable, growing is. I love learning and as long as I do that it’s a good year. Last year, even if it wasn’t the best organized or the most productive, I learned more than I ever have before. Still, I’d like to learn from my mistakes last year, by making a few changes:
- Don’t press myself too hard to finish every subject every day
- Don’t burn out by October
- Leave time for fun
Yes, I’m trying to easier on myself this year. I’m always so hard on myself. I push myself too far and every time I just explode from the pressure of everything. I can’t do that again. I want to make this year fun. 🙂
