My After School Routine | SSHS

Hello everyone!! Here’s another post because I feel like I have SO much free time but the truth is, I need to study for three upcoming exams. Haha, wish me luck! Anyway, school can really be tiring and here’s my after school routine. However, my routine changes because you guys know me, my mind changes a lot from time to time. 

My After School Routine | SSHS

Okay first of all, it’s weird to say that I’m actually studying because I’ve never done that in my entire life. But here’s my routine after I get home from school: 

  • Sleep or take a rest.

Okay so the first thing I do is take a rest, and if I’m lucky enough, I’d sleep for an hour or so. And there was one time where I really need to study for a test but my nap continued and I woke up the day after. I was really panicking and I didn’t know what to do. It was already set in my mind to wake up after an hour but because I’m just SO lucky, I slept through the whole night and didn’t study at all. BUT the good thing is, I still passed the test. I got 40/46 in our Science test and my only mistake was I didn’t follow the instruction– if I did, then my score might be even higher. That was a lesson for me– indeed a lesson. Hah. 

  • Feed my cats & eat dinner with fam.

I can’t just ignore my pets so I still feed them. Here’s another story: You guys know that Muning has only three kittens, right? Sharpie, Veena and Tiny– but one time when I got home from school, I looked at their haul and I was so confused. Why was there four kittens inside the cage? And the other kitten was white, and looks exactly like Sharpie! I was really confused and I asked my mum about the kittens. I remember there were only three kittens. I start to wonder what if I’m just dreaming? Haha. But I saw my dad laughing, I asked him where did he get the other kitten and dad said that the kitten was lost so he kept it. And I already gave him a name as well. He is called Perry– he looks like Elline’s cat so I named him Perry as well.

Okay, story aside, after feeding my cats, I go now and feed myself– studies is life but being healthy is lifer. Haha. 

  • Take a shower.

But there are times that I can’t really do this because I’m so tired and at the same time, I have SO much to do. If I can’t take a shower, I just change my clothes and I get ready to study for the night.

  • Study.

I don’t think I can call “this” as studying already. But yeah, I do read notes but only when there are exams and assignments. I’m not really the studious type aha. Anyway, I think there’s a name for this but my study habit is I write then I read. I write, I really repeat all my notes and then I read for a few times, and then I feel like I can remember what I wrote. We all have different study habits so cheers if you have the same study habit as mine!

  • Wash face and brush teeth. 

I can’t avoid this one! So after I finish studying, I refreshen myself again and I use Cetaphil for my face. It’s just so soft and I feel so fresh after applying it to my face– even if it’s so late at night. Haha.

  • Sleep again.

To be totally honest, I need sleep. I really do. It’s really hard and sometimes I don’t really notice the time and realise that it’s already 1am or so. And then my classmates would ask me if I even slept because of my eye bags. I just don’t mind them. 

What is your after school routine? 

Have a lovely day, fellas!

    Acceptance | SSHS 

    Change is inevitable and you need to accept every change that comes in your way. 

    I know, it’s hard to adjust with the change. It’s been a month already since we started school, but I don’t think I can say that I’m already used to my new routines and to the new people around me. 

    It’s hard. New people are in your way, new ideas, conflicts and so much more. It’s also hard to cope up with the environment and trust me, there are people who will always stare at you, and if you’re paranoid, you’ll get scared. The people who stares at you may be a group of guys or a group of girls, but think deeper. Think outside the box. Ask yourself, why do they look at me? 

    • Do I look ugly?
    • Did I do something wrong?
    • What’s wrong with me? Is there a dirt on my face? Why are they staring?

    And then you’ll think of that, you’ll start to ignore yourself and the positivity around you. But let’s make it the other way around. They look at you because:

    • You are beautiful.
    • They see something good in you.
    • They want to be your friend. 
    • There may be some conflict around you and them, but that would be solved with a proper communication.

    If you don’t really know each other and they continue to look at you, then just accept it. Accept the fact that they can’t get their eyes off you. Think positive. You are beautiful and your inside self knows that.

    Another problem with adjusting with change is the lessons and the teachers. You might come from a public school before and you’re so used to the openness during discussions; and your former teachers in your private school before are so close to you but now, what happened? You rarely talk with the teachers. It’s hard to adjust, but what I can say again is accept. 

    Accept whatever’s happening in your life right now, because pure acceptance results to pure actions and good works. And always remember that Jesus is always there for you, so accept His plans and glorify Him always. Do not interfere with what the Lord is doing with your life; He knows what’s best for you, and for everyone of us. So just accept whatever life throws at you. I know and I believe, that you’re going to pass through it all with the help of our Lord Jesus Christ. ❤ 

    I wrote this for everyone who’s adjusting to the change, because I myself is also adjusting too. It’s hard, I swear, it’s hard. But as with God, I can do all things and pass through this. 

    And hey, you. Yes, you, who are currently reading. I want you to smile right now and tell yourself that you can do it. You can surpass life’s problems… just trust the Lord. 🙂
