Today, Amy and I studied at one of my favorite coffee places from 7:30am until 12:00pm. I’ve managed to get plenty of studying done, regardless of what people might assume of me (lazy, incompetent, doesn’t give a shit about school). It’s kind of obvious when I’m studying because I do my best to stay away from any form of social media.
I think the moment I begin to have a little fun, or have something along the lines of a ‘social’ life, people would frown upon me. ‘Shouldn’t she be studying? Shouldn’t she be suffering like everyone else?’ Yes. I’m suffering, but I don’t find it necessary any longer to share it with the world. I find it awful, always posting up things that would stress me out. Complaining about my situation won’t lighten the situation!
Therefore, I go out and live a little. Spend a little more time with friends, some more time with family, and just try different things that are out of my comfort zone because there’s more to life than just this. And by this, I mean sitting for hours upon hours in front of a computer screen writing about how boring your life can be.
The thing is, your life is far from boring. If you’d just take the time to make the effort to step out of your door and breathe in some of that fresh air, you’d feel better already. I find it sad that people look down on you for that, that the moment they find you enjoying a little bit of your life, they want to rain on your parade.
