Hello. I'm back.
Just a little update for you guysss :) I honestly had no idea what I should post here so I havent been active sorryyyy
It’s been a year since I’ve adopted the chillax lifestyle (basically having sundays off and just generally not putting study as the first priority) and honestly, it worked reallllly well. I had my as results back last week and they are a lot better than what the teachers and I myself predicted to be. This year I’ve also felt a lot more alive, picked up an interest or two (which has now developed into an online business) and have grown into a happier and braver person.
What I’m doing right now is off the traditional path, and I’m constantly reminded to ‘study hard’ 'don’t spend too much time doing other stuff’ because I’ll be in my last yr of high school soon, but it’s my life, and I’m so glad that I’ve made the right choice. Taking days off and chillin may not be a big deal for you guys, but in hong kong and a lot of asian countries, it’s definitely not normal. I have a lot of friends who studied hard everyday, go to tutorial classes even in holidays and have tons of extra lessons. I just want to say that it’s okay to chill, and chilling doesnt mean you’ll get crappy grades (if grades mattered that much). Sometimes you’ll even perform better under less pressure.
