Advent of Summer
Entry posted by Samsara ·
My junior year of high school has been the toughest year of my life so far. Due to overstretching myself between extracurriculars, leadership positions, and tough academic classes, as well as a severe development and diagnosis with Major Depressive Disorder, it's been not so happy sunshine all the time. The two feed into each other and cause a third issue: a terrible sleeping pattern. This triumvirate of terrible things has plagued me.
I've been going to therapy since last February. It's helped a lot, particularly in self-perception regarding my depression. And I've been doing my best with schoolwork and mental/physical health, but the 24/7 schedule I've fallen into has made it tough for me to take a break, get a hold of everything, catch up, and then be able to dive back in and give it my 100%. This has led to me looking more and more forward to the summer, as some sort of final release from the drudges of this school year.
I'm looking forward to the orgiastic catharsis, if there will be one. I've learned a lot this year, and I'm thankful for it. I've grown drastically as a person. But right now, I just want to get regular sleep. :P
I'm excited for this summer. One week left until I'm a high school senior! :D
