Warning: disorganized post– I was writing the way my brain works. Also, a lot of (only half-kidding) complaining on the verge of whining is about to ensue…sometimes I wish I were into YouTube so that I could show people how I feel; when I’m being sarcastic or trying to make a joke, because I’m pretty sure I sound like a 2-year-old spoiled brat in this post 😂 oh well. WAIT…that gives me an idea
I’m going to Disneyland, and I don’t want to go.
That probably sounds really bratty of me (because it is) but I simply can’t go- I have so much schoolwork to do. Spring break is notorious for not being a break at all, but rather a week of frenetic studying and stressing and maybe breakdowns.
I would like to complain a little, so I will.
AP tests, for one thing, are almost immediately after this break. Right now I’m taking AP Spanish and AP European history, and I haven’t studied for them at all. [AP tests are test that you take after taking an AP (Advanced Placement; “college level” course). Scores are from a scale of 1-5, with 3 as a passing score. If you pass, colleges may give you credit so that you don’t need to take the same class again in college] I’m sure that I’ll pass both of them, but my goal is to get at least a 4 on each, which will require some more studying. AHHHH 😂
And then my lovely AP Euro teacher decided to give us quizzes during our break. QUIZZES. Not even homework, but quizzes that we need to take on the exact day she posts them. I’ll be in a hotel room with my laptop answering questions about World War II.
There is also major research project due after break- I need to write up 20 pages and incorporate pictures, screenshots, and interviews. This break is also used to study for finals, which I won’t be able to do.
I’ll just have to try to cram everything in, I guess. Everything will be fineeee (*two weeks later, at 2 AM* I’M NOT FINE)
I really am looking forward to going to Disneyland though- who doesn’t love Disneyland?! I haven’t been there in four years. Since then, I’ve acquired a love of roller coasters- I love that rush of adrenaline that you get while dropping weightlessly down the tracks; it makes me feel fearless. It’s really surprising given that I become horribly motion sick on airplanes and some buses or trains.
I’ll be dropping by Universal Studios and the San Diego Zoo as well. Universal studios=HARRY POTTER!! I am ecstatic to be going there- I want butterbeer! And exploding bonbons, and chocolate frogs…as you can see, it’s all about the food;) I won’t be able to leave without buying merchandise- as you may or may not know, I love Harry Potter.
At the zoo, I hope to go zip lining- so much fun!!
I don’t think anyone at school would expect me to be into thrill rides and things like this; I am a quiet, shy wallflower who blends in with the carpet. I probably wouldn’t have ever tried to go on a roller coaster if not for my best friend going with me on my first one.
Riding on thrill rides makes me feel like I’m someone I’m not, but in a good way. I know that this courage and fearlessness and strength revealed on these rides are always residing inside of me, and that makes me feel amazing.
So I’m going to pack up my stuff, as we’re leaving tomorrow in the morning. Exciting, but at the same time so stressful. I’ll need to pack my laptop for the quizzes, dammit.
I may post some drafts while I’m gone, but no guarantees;)
Well, that’s that! I know that this was a disorganized, all-over-the-place post, but that’s how my brain works after doing trigonometry problems;)
In total, I will be dragging my stressed and depressed little soul over to Disneyland, where I will have social anxiety as costumed actors call me “Princess” and try to be friendly.
Wow, I am definitely loads of fun. 😂
Bye! I’ll see you after vacation:) If you’re on break, I hope that you have a fantastic one, and if not, I hope that you have a great week!
Xoxo, C 😊
P.s. If anyone has any tips or anything to say about Disneyland, I would love to hear them:)
