Eep

I has been a very bad blogger as of lately.

I am admittedly insanely frustrated myself for the recent hiatus on blogging that was worsened by the following severe lack of explanation. Rude, very rude.
I guess the explanation I can give is that I got caught up in IB and getting through everything else. The creative outlet was ignored because creativity was becoming a rare occurrence and one I haven’t particularly had time for either.

A lot has happened for me in the past three months though that I can’t wait to talk to you guys about. Current followers and any recent new I really want to thank you for stinking around and hope you will continue as I get back into the blogging spirit. Even just writing this post is making me feel better and more excited. Hopefully a lot of posts will be getting written and sent out in the next while.

So a big thanks to my followers, I can’t wait to check other blogs as well to see what you’ve been up to. Anything super big that you want to talk about? Comment below!

Happy blogging!

Back To School: Life In The IB Program

School is painful enough. So what do I do? Add something really difficult to it. Just for shits and giggles.

In short, IB/International Baccalaureate is a school based program meant to challenge students and better prepare them for university. Even allowing them to skip first year courses altogether. And when making the decision to leave my elementary school and go to Nicholson in grade nine, this one the deciding factor.

What Do We Really Learn In School

What is it that is really taught in school now?

Let’s push aside the classes, the tests, the exams. There’s so much more to it. The first twelve or so years of kids’ lives. I’m going into grade twelve. I’m in the International Baccalaureate program and there is so much more to the life school should be preparing us for.  Continue reading “What Do We Really Learn In School”

August Summary

I seem to be at least a few days late posting this monthly wrap ups every time. Bad habit Shayla. But I probably won’t fix it.

Anyways. My summer is over! I have 4 days left before handing myself over to school for my last year of high school. So what’s happened this month?  Continue reading “August Summary”

Three Realistic Goals I Would Like To Achieve In My Lifetime

Prompts are fun and this one is pretty good. So three goals? Let’s see what I’ve got.

The first beyond any doubt and without much necessary thought is having a book published.
So this one is pretty straightforward. I mean this is originally a book blog after all, books, stories, writing; it’s my life. I simply wouldn’t be the same Continue reading “Three Realistic Goals I Would Like To Achieve In My Lifetime”

The Medication Life

Without a doubt I have been in a major dry spell for posts for the past few weeks. My apologies for that because I miss it and I miss talking with other bloggers out there in the community. With that in mind I thought I’d take the chance to talk about the topic I spoke about in a post awhile back, The Struggle To Talk.

Because as it goes, once you get diagnosed, in comes the medication. It’s not going to take long and it’s a simple fact apparently.

As I believe I said in my last post about mental health and my life, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, that was done over a year ago now, during March 2015 as my mother found out for the second time that I was suicidal and I hit a new all time low in my short life. Before long I was going to the hospital an hour away from home to see the doctors they had there dedicated for teen mental health. The psychiatrist appointments began along with counselling for the umpteenth time in my life. The new part? Medication. Or, my meds.  Continue reading “The Medication Life”
