What I did during the break; Or what happens when I have to much free time

Monday

This was a fun day, I had two goals and failed at both, but I succeeded in other ways. The first thing I did that day was grocery shopping with my father. I mostly joined in other to buy makeup remover and dry shampoo. The store had neither*. I got sad and bought apples instead, with the intent to bake an apple pie at a later.

 My other project of the day was to organize the three disorganized drawers/shelves in my closet. The drawers went fine, but then came the shelve from hell. Instead of taking it on I cleaned out and organized the hallway clothes hanger and the first wardrobe. No one had done that in ages, and I managed to fill a bag worth of clothes to get rid of. My favorite part was the mittens that fit a infant and the scarf my father had no idée he owned. Also the fact that I now have my very own drawer and don’t have to share with my brother. 

You would not believe how this place looked before I got my hands on it

Tuesday

Me, my father and my brother went to a museum. Our original plan was to go to the museum of the sea, Sjöfartsmuseet, but it turned out that they were renovating and it was closed. Then we thought,” let’s go to the city museum, Stadsmuseet. But it’s hell to park there so we ended up close to Maritiman and went there instead. In the end it was probably a good choice, I don’t think that my brother would have enjoyed Stadsmuseet. Also Maritiman is the best museum in the city, you get to climb around in an old warship and a submarine, they have other boats to but they aren’t as big or as much fun.

In the afternoon I was planning to continue with the wardrobe clean-out but mom wouldn’t let me. I think that she was afraid to get more than one bag of clear out clothes to take care of. Instead I finally tackled my shelf from hell. The shelf turned out pretty well, but I now have a dress in my pants drawer because it doesn’t fit anywhere else, so I’m going to have to fix that.  

In the evening we went to the local galleria wear I finally could by dry shampoo and makeup remover. Also bought hair-ties and hair rollers. Then went home and tried to roll my hair, it did not go well so no pictures.                     

Wednesday 

I started watching Interior Design Masters on netflix while doing some studying. Then I realised that I was spending all of the daylight indoors and that was bad. So my plan was to take some outfit pictures with the family camera, only it was out of battery. So I texte dad to ask him wear the chargers was and he said that we apparently had some spare batteries upstairs. Afters some searching I finally found them and put them in, only for it to turn out that they too was out of energy. My dad no longer has responsibility over the batteries. In the end the pictures was taken and I got all the camera equipment in my room.

In the afternoon I watched the rest of Interior Design Masters, sadly my favorit did not win. I also finished the english homework that wasn’t actually necessary to finish and I still hadn’t started on school work that would have been good to do.

Thursday 

 Wrote some, and felt sorry for my shelf. Also played video games.

Friday 

Woke up late again. Then had an honest conversation with my mum about how vacation makes me a mess, apparently she had the same problem growing up. Felt quite nice to know that I wasn’t the only one. Also it solidify my plan to study during the summer, college courses hear I come. The we finally baked the apple pie, and it was delicious. Also wrote some.

Look at this beauty 

Saturday 

Made myself wake up early, no one else did. When the clock tournd 10.30 I started getting worried, but I had a cat in my lap and I want that worried. The family finally got up shortly after. Also, finished cleaning my room. Changed the sheets and it is now finally vacuumed. Normally it happens more often, but I thought that my father was going to do it way before I got sick and he just changed his mind and didn’t tell me. Who does that?? How was I supposed to now that? I didn’t realized it until it was too late and I was already sick.   

Sunday 

Drove our mini tractor in our paddock in  order to evening out, it took a long time but I got to listen to music at the same time so I was fine. Finally started studying, even though it wasn’t until the afternoon. Still, got a lot of studying done that day. Then, in the evening, I went to my grandmother and spent the night there. That meant that I could go up 45 minutes later and still be on time on Monday  

*In order to be fair to Citygross I feel like I ought to mention that they do in fact have makeup removing wipes but I was looking for the liquid kind.      

Back to school, but in a good way

The beautiful Hvitfeldtska gymnasium

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.
