It Feels like I have So Much to Do

Hi guys! Short post, because I’m half-stressed.

Today, I’ve kind of roped myself into doing a lot of stuff – most of which could be done at another time, but because I’m me, I’ve decided I need to do them all NOW. What a sensible decision, Elm!

First, I need to re-do my about page. As much as I love the page, it’s just not ‘me’ any more – it partly is, but I just want to write it again to put a fresh spin on things. I want to put more of an emphasis on how I’m always here to talk to anyone who needs it, and to REALLY explain who I am. Is that a good idea?

I also REALLY need to update my page about who’s who. It’s horrendously out of date; there are people I mention on my blog that aren’t on that page, and also, situations – especially with Ash – have changed. I mean, Rapunzel isn’t even on there! That just shows you how much I need to do to get it up to scratch. As well as this, would it be better to have the names in headings rather than in bold? I can’t do visuals – sorry!

Because my school is evil and the jump from GCSE to A Level is huge, I have a ton of holiday homework to do. I’m going to hold off on the English until I see Wren, because I honestly don’t understand it. However, I have a 60 page (though the pages are small) French grammar booklet that I need to start today. Yes, I have the whole holiday, but if I don’t start now, I’ll NEVER start. Stress is mounting, so I need to de-stress myself.

In addition to that, I’ve scheduled a call with an internet friend (I mean I said we should call in about 10 minutes after he asked) so I’m mildly freaking out about that. I don’t know him that well, but hopefully, through this, we’ll understand each other better. Later on, I need to call a few other people because I did promise. GOD it feels like I’m popular, but I’m really not; trust me!

Okay, Elm, breathe! All I have to do is think logically and calmly, and it’ll all be fine. Wooo I think I’ve put too much pressure on myself.

Alright, I’m going to call this friend now and after that, do my french grammar booklet. If things get too awkward, I’ll plead that I have to do my homework because of stress (not a lie). It’ll be okay.

Today, I’ve already spoken to Tara about books and life, which was so so amazing. This afternoon, I also opened up to L about what’s been going on recently. It was such a relief to finally talk to him about it – I may have nearly cried, but it made me feel better.

What are you guys up to today? I think I need to just relax.

From Elm πŸ™‚

  1. Awh don’t worry and just chill for a while. You’ll get everything done πŸ™‚
    (says she who is overly stressed about her formative tmrw) I’m a hypocrite, bye.

    • Oh well, let’s try and achieve things together! I already did my about page πŸ™‚ I think I like it! The internet friend hasn’t called yet though 😦 Ugh well!

      • Ooo I’m done revising for my formative assessment and its only 9:30 pm! I feel very confident about it actually. Hopefully I’ll do well!
        Your friend will call, don’t you worry πŸ™‚

  2. Hey it’s ok to have lots to do and be stressed about things. My advice is make a list of everything you have to do and after doing the things you need to do, then indulge in the satisfaction of crossing something off which should motivate you more and more. Don’t be afraid to just chill and do nothing. Maybe practice meditation i don’t know if you’re into that or not

    • I don’t often do meditation, but I think the kefor me is to relax. The ticking things off is a great idea – I already did my about page which is great. I just need to do my Who’s Who Exactly page again which is going to take so long, because I need to rewrite all the descriptions for everyone.

  3. heyyy!!lol, have fun doing your work thannn!!you prob may have time on tuesday if ur in london (i think the whole of london, maybe bigger region) cos like theres gonna be a teachers strike and school’s gonna be shut!!xx

  4. Breathe Elm! Tackle things one at a time and remember to keep a calm and productive mindset. Oh, and don’t forget to take regular breaks or you’re most likely to become more stressed.

  5. Omg your school are horrible! My school haven’t given us any homework and when we were just coming in for exams they practically told us to bugger off if we didn’t! Thank you so so much for the advice, if there is every anything you want to talk to me about, I’m always here as a pair of ears and just listen, like you did with me πŸ™‚

  6. holiday homework is a pain, since you’re stressed, start doing your work from hardest to easiest, and do it for at least 5 mins (so you won’t procrastinate! stress is actually the cause of procrastination.) and start noticing the progress :’D
    i hope i helped!

    • You really did! πŸ™‚ Hmm, maybe I’ll start on my English today, though my French IS pretty difficult! We’ll see πŸ˜€ But seriously thank you, you talking it out really helped me to stay calm πŸ™‚

  7. Just relax, you have a lot of things to do. Omg I wouldn’t imagine having homework in summer, guess I’m too lazy. And speaking of updating your about me page, I think I should update mine too, guess it’s too obsolete now…oops! So yup, everything will turn out well! Good luck tho I’m sure you’re not gonna need it!! πŸ™‚

  8. Don’t worry too much about it. You’ll get everything done. Just start taking little steps – 30 minutes up to an hour every day is more than enough for your homework. And the rest of the day you should spend chilling and relaxing. You’re on holiday after all. πŸ™‚

  9. Take things one thing at a time πŸ˜‰ I also get so stressed with my blog because I want everything to be updated and organized, ahh the struggles. Hope you complete everything you want to get done!

    • I hope I do too! πŸ™‚ I haven’t posted today and it’s stressing me out! But it shouldn’t, and I should just sleep haha!

    • Hey! πŸ™‚ I’m just about to check out your blog.
      Okay first of all, this might seem weird to say, but you’re already doing the right thing. Commenting on people’s blogs, liking and following is a BRILLIANT way to get your blog out there. Especially commenting, because it gives people the opportunity to see who you are. Reach out, and don’t be afraid of it; no one’s going to judge you.
      Next, have you thought about creating a blog twitter? You can follow loads of other bloggers too, and it’s a good way to spread the word!
      As for writing, write what YOU want to write about. Be honest, and be yourself; don’t try and change just so you can get more views. That’s not what a blog’s about.
      Thanks for asking me; it means a lot!

  10. Bless you, Elm. I’ve caught up on reading – to be frank I was trying to before and actually I’m pretty up to date so get me! – and I’ll roll everything into one. Exams are over! I can join you on that one now – my last was the 28th of June. Your prom night! You’ve had prom! I don’t get prom until Year 13 but it was interesting to read your account. Plus, the heels! I’m proud and happy. Just take it easy for the next couple of months. I, too, along with pretty much the rest of us ex-Year 11s have plenty to be getting on with over the summer but that can all be taken in one’s stride. I’m confident that you’ll do brilliantly come sixth form and as ever, I love reading about your life. As ever, apologies for the deafening silence; pray the crickets weren’t too disruptive.

    • Helloo I’ve missed ya but whenever the Z returns, my life is complete πŸ˜› No seriously, thanks for commenting!
      YES, examssss are over! So so happy; we can have a mini celebration! And ahh Prom… I’m so proud of myself for wearing heels it’s INSANE! My feet killed by the end of the night.
      Ooh, I hope I can manage it. French is giving me issues and so’s English. What A-Levels are you taking again?

      • *wipes away tear of content* Naw, STAHP it!
        Lol “tear of content” what even am I?
        Maths, Further Maths, Physics and French. Going to do an EPQ too. I dropped Chemistry last week. I have a post in my drafts regarding mes sujets mais it needs tweaking. (Need to tweak Chemistry out!)

  11. Today, I just went to a BBQ party thing, which took up a very big chunk of my day. I also did some reading, but that’s it.
    But wow~ You really do a lot of things! I really admire your diligence and your sense of responsibility. If it were me, I would probably end up starting my holiday homework the day before. Or, if I were in a particularly studious mood, I would maybe start it the week before or something. But it’s good to not procrastinate…so this year, I might try to change, since you have motivated me to also try to start my holiday homework~ πŸ™‚
    Good luck & try not to stress! Try to also enjoy your holidays haha; have a nice day! πŸ˜€

    • Back at you! Ooh, a barbeque sounds lovely! πŸ™‚ SO jealous. Round here it was half-raining and half-sunny yesterday and I just thought, “The weather can’t make up it’s mind UGH!”
      Hehe I’m so glad to have motivated you! Honestly, I procrastinate SO much that it’s terrible! I need to sort that out honestly, and I have no idea why I feel so… Inspired to do my homework! Eek! How much summer homework do you have?

      • I have a couple of books I need to read, and I have to finish a small packet of physics problems. I think that I also have to write 2 essays, but that’s it haha πŸ™‚
