Last year, my English teacher said something about how your body knows to hold off being sick or faulty when you’re under a lot of pressure. If you have a huge project that you’ve been doing for two weeks and during that time you’ve been exposed to a cold, your body will be like, “I’m way too busy to deal with this right now,” and it’ll just chill. BUT, once that project is over and you have a three-day weekend or something, that cold will pop up. She was saying that your body doesn’t want to overwhelm you, or that it knows when to fit things in so that you can keep going without too much trouble.

I don’t think that’s exactly what’s happening to me but now that fall break is here, I’ve slept so so much. All the sleep I’ve been missing over the week just caught up to me and it’s nice to think back to what my teacher said when things like this happen.

It being fall break makes me really excited, because it means winter break is coming really soon, and that will take us into the new year, which actually makes me kinda nervous! The January to June part of the school year passes really quickly, and a lot of my friends are seniors who are graduating soon. Which also means that I’m going to be a senior soon. My mom has been bugging me a lot about college things, and that freaks me out because I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life! I don’t even know how college really works. I just wish time would slow down and let me catch up. ♦
