I’ve been back to school for three weeks and I can’t believe how much better I’m feeling. My biggest envy of neurotypical people is always going to be their ability to fully enjoy summer break. It’s not that I don’t like vacation it’s just that I get so incredibly bored after like two weeks so I can’t do anything.
Normal me thinks reading is relaxing, vacation me thinks that it’s too boring and can’t focus on the words. For the first week of the break, while my brain was still on normal, I read five books, for the rest nine weeks I only read fanfiction on my phone. And while I think that fanfiction is one of the best things invented I just really didn’t want to only read that during the break. Now that school is back I have already finished two books. I love being back to normal me.
Beside finally getting the ability to read back I have also gotten stability in my life, something that I have sorely missed. I love school and the structure that it provides. I also really love being able to not be around my family at all for an extended period of time. Don’t get me wrong, my family is great, to much time around them just get on my nerves.
For the next summer break I plan to study at university just to not get that feeling of non functioning human being. At one point this summer it got so bad that I was basically lying on the floor crying which I haven’t done in a year and back then it was for completely different reasons.
Anyway schools great, stay in school kids. Hope you had a better (dare I say good) summer break.
