    This is kind of stupid, but I just back to school for one day and I feel really terrible. Like, my entire year moved up a school so everything’s new (At least I have tonnes of my friends in my class 😀 ) and it just feels so weird. Literally not a single person was social distancing, and in my class of 30 there was 4 of us wearing masks including me 🙁 Later on, more people started to wear them so that was great though.
    I quite liked it today, but I’m so stressed and exhausted. I just don’t think I’ll be able to do 7 hours of that tomorrow 🙁 And we have to get up at around 6AM to be there by quarter to nine which is really early for me – over quarantine I’ve been used to getting up at 11 (just before midday) because I don’t sleep at night AT ALL. To be honest, the time wasn’t really a problem for me though, it just gets me extra tired.
    Does anyone have any tips for stuff they did to stay sane in school? 😛 Akdkslcjskdkskcjsk sorry for ranting –

    I have had so much homework lately and I just started school 4 days ago! Does anyone have any advice to get homework done fast?

      Um…try not to get distracted and don’t get on blogclan when you’re doing homework 😛. Maybe divide different classes homework up and take a break in between.

      I’m going into freshmen year, and all our teachers tell us to pay attention and to take notes. Now, I know this is really cliche and your probably hear it a lot, but it really does help! And if you have extra time in any classes, take the opportunity to do your homework then. It gives you more free time at home to do what you really want, instead of boring old homework. Anyways, hope this helps!

      Something that helps me get things done is making a list of all your tasks.
      Being able to look at it and visualize how much you have left will help you manage your time.

    Something feels… off… about my mom. She says she is stressed, tired, and having allergies, which is legit. But I sense something else, something she doesn’t want me to know, heck, she may not know. My brain says it’s probably nothing, but my heart and gut feelings say it’s clearly something else wrong. What do I do?

    • August 13, 2020 at 4:21 am

      Maybe talk to her?? I don’t have much advice, but hopefully your mom will get better. Remember you are never alone! <3

      Hmm.. maybe try asking her in a way that wouldn’t cause her to get upset? I don’t know how to really say it though maybe “Hey mom, I feel like something about you seems a bit off. Is everything okay?” Maybe that would work? I don’t know much about your mom, or her personality. But that is what normally works for me. That’s all I have to say *hugsss!*

    • August 13, 2020 at 5:28 am

      I understand how you feel, but I don’t have much advice.

      Give her space and try not to bring it up too much, but still be there for her and show that you support her.

      I don’t know :((( Maybe hang around with her to watch her behavior, or talk to her like Rainy said? What’s happened recently?
      I’m sorry I don’t have better advice. *hugs*

    Hey. So. This is Lapisdapple. I really feel bad, dumping my garbage on you, but, um, well, here goes. I feel like a mistake. Whenever I say anything in my family, everything quickly rolls downhill, and it’s like whenever I speak, I make things infinitely worse. I can never get anything right, and I mess everything up. I just feel like I shouldn’t be here and I’m doing everything wrong. I just… I don’t know what to do. Maybe these feelings are normal, and I’m the weird one, but I’m usually really positive and alright, so having these feelings recently is really scary. My friends seem to feel awkward around me and I don’t want to mess up and I just feel so… So useless. So. yeah. My rant for the day. Sorry for dumping all of this on you guys…


    • August 13, 2020 at 4:19 am

      Hey Lappy. I don’t have much advice, but you are not useless. You are not a mistake and try to stay strong. Think positive and remember you are awesome!! <3 <3

      You aren’t useless Lapis! You are awesome! You aren’t a mistake, and i feel like that sometimes too. So I think it’s normal (although I don’t know what it’s like for others). You deserve to be here!

    • August 13, 2020 at 5:24 am

      You are not useless.

      I’ve had similar feelings. Just keep reminding yourself that you’re amazing, talented, and important, because it’s true! <333

      omg lappy you are literally the best! you are so kind and you are not a mistake or useless at all!

    • August 13, 2020 at 1:19 pm

      You aren’t useless!! and remember we all love you! *huggys* ❤

      Plz click my name!

    • August 13, 2020 at 2:19 pm

      You’re not useless. At all.
      It’s normal to feel this way—everyone feels this way at some point. You should be here, Lapisdapple. I feel awkward when I talk, even in my family (but only in front of my step-dad. I’m still getting used to this. 😛 ) So relatable <3
      Would you be comfortable in talking to your mom or dad (or sibling, if you have a sibling that close) ? *hugs*

      P.S. (this place is totally for dumping garbage. ;)) <3 )


    • August 13, 2020 at 6:34 pm

      Lapis. You are not useless!

      i’m so sorry lapis. everyone feels like that sometime, it’s just part of living i guess :\
      just remember, 1. everyone on the blog is always here if you need to rant, and we think you’re awesome!! and 2. that feeling always goes away over time, so just remember that everything will turn out fine in the end, even if things seem hard right now <333

      thats not very plus ultra of u

    Schools almost here, and I’m already stressed, but my mom has literally just made it w o r s e.
    We were talking in the car, and the subject of games came up. My mom told my little brother that he had to keep up good grades to be able to play the electronics and stuff. Then I say something about my grades, and my mom goes, “No, you need to keep all A’s.”
    and I nearly flipped. I’ve never had a panic attack before, but I think I had one then, because I almost started crying right then and there after she said it. And honestly, I don’t know what to do now. ALL A’S???? 8th grade was fine, because it was 8th grade. The classes wernt very hard for me. But now that it’s 9th grade… My teachers won’t make exceptions, and classes will be WAY harder. I tried explaining this to her, and basically what she was was that I was capable enough.
    And now, I just can’t. School starts Tuesday for me, and the first 2 weeks will be okay, the teachers are lenient then, but after, no, just no.
    Anyways, sorry for dumping this rant on you, but I find its easy to talk to people on here.

      It’s understandable how that upset you. It’s not right of her to expect so much of you- what matters is that you try your best, not that you do it perfectly every single time! Making mistakes is a part of learning. <333

      I know that must be hard for you. All that matters is that you work hard and try, and if you put in the effort, who knows, you might just get all A’s!

      Everyone is there for you <333

    • August 14, 2020 at 12:50 am

      Your panic attack seems understandable, all a’s seems really frightening. I think your mom needs to just accept whatever grades you get is your best and she shouldn’t expect more than you are capable. Just study and even if you get a bad grade, you know you tried your best and your mom shouldn’t ask for more than that. I think you should take school one day at a time and not freak out about exams already. If you get really stressed, you can always talk to a teacher!

    Oh fox dung, there is a huge thunderstorm! It wasn’t bad until I was lightning light up my room! Now I’m really scared, does that mean the lightning is close? It’s 12:30 am and I’m definitely not falling asleep with the huge racket the thunderstorm and heavy rain is making so I’m stuck in the middle of night feeling petrified. I’ve turned to not looking at the lightning flashing up my room and looking at my screen instead. I feel kind of silly for being scared since I haven’t before.

    So a while back I said I was stressed and I was going to take a break from the blog until I felt better, but I feel even worse right now. I can’t really go into detail because that would take time, and time is something I never seem to have.

    I just feel so unproductive and I feel like I’m failing at life. I have a sort of mental breakdown if someone mentions something that I need to do because I have so much to do and everything piles up and ugh

    And y’all are probably going to tell me to quit a few things but I can’t. If I do I feel like a) I’m letting down my teacher and my family, b) I’m letting down myself, and c) because I quit something I’m going to fail in life.

    I’m also becoming super paranoid and I think that everyone is out to get me which is stupid (trust me I know) but I can’t help it. Usually I’m the one saying “Trust your friends! They’d never insult you on purpose!” but now I’m just being a hypocrite.

    Thank you all for listening to me rant have a nice day
