Right now I should be out on a run but for the past couple days my ankles in particular have been in a lot of pain. It’s unfortunate because I didn’t go running last week because of certain things happening either which sets me behind on my physiotherapy. For the past week or so badminton really has put a strain on my leg and arms but it won’t stop me this week. I’ll definitely go during the week, Wednesday and Sunday if possible.
Taking up what my friends said I’ve tried to get away from this leniency I have with myself, especially with my timing on things. So I’ve scrapped the dozen number of alarms and snoozes I give myself and now I’ve got only one alarm and with the cool alarm app I bought I can have it not allow a snooze and I can’t try set another alarm in the same day if I want it to. That way if I try sleep through my alarm then that’s my fault and I’ll be in school late. Hey, it’s a couple minutes past 8 and I’ve already began this. That’s the first step to change, right?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad friends give me advice or ask for change and all. I do the same myself, I’m just a bit stubborn and tend to ignore it at first glance but I understand the importance of it, I just don’t show it in front of their faces. I tend to not want to see that glint of satisfaction in their eyes. In all honesty I really dislike that which is why you probably won’t see me pleased to listen to your advice, but I am, honestly. I just won’t let you feel satisfied. lol.
I managed to wake up on time today though so that was a joy. The majority of lessons today were unbelievably boring though. Too bad History was so early in the morning, our introduction to our unit of coursework on the recent history of China and Japan and their relations with foreign countries does seem interesting, it does. It’s unfortunate that the lights in the room were off for the most part and that our teacher was just as unconcerned for the lesson as we were. That’s a Monday morning lesson for you.
Today at school we had an induction day. An induction day is when the next year of students that’ll be attending the sixth form from the next school year onwards visit, a sort of introduction to their possible sixth form next year. god our common room was so packed, it’d been ages since we’d last been this packed. Plus the new influx of kids make us older ones seem tiny, some of them are a good feet or so taller than even myself. Some seem swell, others seem obnoxious and I happened to overhear a conversation with a girl in my current year and one of the new girls and from what I saw the new girl was pretty rude. Almost a bitch towards her even. It was their first day, I’ll give them that. Let’s just hope they know their place. Only pleasing thing to see was that a boy from my secondary school managed to apply and secure himself a position at the sixth form. I’ve told him that it’s overrated many times and he still decided to come. Familiar faces are always a joy.
I guess I’ve been bored today. Feels like whenever I’m not out nowadays I’m bored out of my head. Sure I can watch some TV shows and spend hours talking to friends but it doesn’t fill the void now does it. Maybe that’s why I’m gradually attaching myself to this whole badminton thing and jogging. Later on in the week I should also be going to a gym with my brother. I’m supposed to go tomorrow but I’ll be at badminton with Sadian and the lot so yeah.
The sky was pretty dull today and there were a couple small showers. I hate spitting rain. While it is cold, the breeze coming through the open window is as always alluring.
Night turns to day and a day turns to night, and after that, a new day.
