Introductions here we go – my name is Chloe and I’m a teenager from Australia. I lack self confidence, I love food too much and school stresses me out. That sentence pretty much sums me up.
This blog is going to be a lot of things but mostly it’s going to be about my journey to becoming healthy, happy, less stressed and confident. I want to post things about school, eating healthy, exercising and anything that is going to make me happy. I’m not fit or healthy – yet – but that’s what I want to work on over time.
I start school again in two days after being on break for two weeks and I really don’t want to go back. I always feel like I have no time in the day when I have school and by the time weekend comes around I have to work on Saturday, then it gets to Sunday and I’m frantically trying to do all my homework and then it’s Monday again. That cycle repeats for like 10 weeks and by the end I’m exhausted and annoyed at a lot of people.
The hard balancing act is trying to juggle homework and assignments while finding time to exercise, enjoy hobbies, have a social life and include alone time. You also have to remember that you have to be motivated to do these things as well. If you’re not motivated enough to do exercise you’re not going to find time to do it. Also, if you’re like me and sometimes too lazy to make plans with people, you’re not going to have a good social life either.
When I put it like, being a teenager is hard isn’t it? I know it shouldn’t be but I have so many people telling me to enjoy my teen years while it lasts and that’s what makes me really determined to enjoy the next few years of school before I go to university. Which comes to my main point of this whole blog is for me to be happy and enjoy life as a teenager.
I hope at least one person out there can relate to at least a part of this. This post was a bit of a mess to be honest but I just wanted to get a lot down.
Also today is such a pretty day outside. It’s like the middle of autumn in Australia and it should be getting cooler but it’s so warm and sunny like summer. I literally wrote this post in my backyard.
I don’t live in a forest, my house is just surrounded by a bunch of trees.
Anyway, I think that’s all I have to say for this first post. I’m not sure what I’m going to write about next but I’ll probably end up doing it while I’m procrastinating my homework this week.
