Rambling: Time Zones, Exams, K-POP

Good morning, good afternoon, good night.

I find time zones fascinating and annoying at the same time. One of my best friends lives in the USA and I am in Australia, so when I am available to talk, he is heading to bed. It is quite frustrating.

I actually have no idea where this post is headed. I had my first of 6 Year 11 ATAR exams today and my brain is fried. It was English so I literally just had to write for 3 hours straight. I think (well, my accurately, hope) that I did okay. We will find out in a couple of weeks. I have Don’t Wanna Cry by SEVENTEEN on in the background so I am not really thinking about my exam that I have tomorrow.

For me the first exam is always the worst. I panic and freak out because I don’t really know what to expect. I think I will be a bit more composed tomorrow morning than I was today. The good think about these exams is that I get a lot of time off school. I had all of yesterday, this afternoon, the rest of the day after the morning exam, and two days next week. So really, I will only have one proper day of school in two weeks. It is reasonable compensation for having to sit through 6 3-hour long exams.

On to other news, BTS’s MV for “Not Today” has surpassed 100 Million views! Congrats! Next job is “Spring Day”. As I enjoy both songs, this is welcome news to my ears. And has anyone listened/watched ASTRO’s new song “Baby”? I love it! I am also anticipating Pentagon’s comeback in a few days. So much new music to listen to.

So, I think I am going to stop now while I can. This post had no real theme. I guess that is what happens when you just click ‘write’.

I will see you soon.

Struggling Through Procrastination

School has finished and I am patiently waiting for my friend to finish her audition for the upcoming school production so we can walk home. I am sort of dreading going home because I have an English essay to finish for tomorrow. I will let you in on a secret… I have barely started. I know, I know. ‘Why are you doing this instead?’, ‘Get to work, lazy butt!’ I swear I have tried to work on it but it is just so boring. I have this amazing ability to find a way around everything. It takes a certain skill set but it is easy to achieve with practice.

Procrastination has become easier over the years with the creation of the internet, making special mention to YouTube and Spotify. As I am writing this, I have Lotto by EXO playing in my ears, and I am trying to resist the urge to dance. As I can’t dance and am still at school with the teachers walking around me, it would be quite embarrassing. And on comes MAMA the EXO-K version. Love this song… ANYWAY, as I was saying it is easier to become distracted nowadays.

…………………

So it is now a few hours later and while I have made progress on my English essay, I still can’t be bothered to do it. I mean, it apparently has to be 1000 words and I am going to struggle to get to 700. Has anyone read The Boat by Nam Le? I preferred Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden from last year. Oh well, it will be over soon. My essay on the other hand…. even Ailee can’t encourage me today. Tomorrow morning will be quite stressful, I reckon. I don’t recommend to anyone to leave an essay to the last minute, even if it is dead boring and you would rather light yourself on fire than think about it. It is a bad habit that I wish to change, but English just isn’t helping.

I have put up the link to a lovely little video that will help in your procrastination process.
