    Life has been very interesting. There has been lots of ups and downs. Im in highschool right now. As the school year is coming to an end, we have lots of final projects and tests. We have to take art this year and my teacher will give you a bad grade on everything. You have to be Picasso to even get a B. Sports are going well right now. School is just stressful. I enjoy doing math, and language *spanish* class. Right now I am really bored and my weekends fly by, but my school days go super slow.

    Going back to the sneaker selling topic, I used to sell sneakers last year and I made a really good amount of money. I sold a shoe for $1000 and it only costed me about $175.

    thanks for the kind words! I don't think I've struggled much with giving myself breaks, but the onslaught of my classes + the work outside of it has been so draining for me since I began last August. Thankfully, this semester has been a lil better but I'm still very much looking forward to this first month I have off. As I said, my plan is to just take the first few weeks here to de-stress and relax a lil before eventually getting more days at work. If it's anything like I expect it to be, then hypothetically I'd be working 3-4 days a week, 6-8 hrs a day. While I don't enjoy the concept of working all that much, being able to get some extra money saved up while not having much else to do is always an ideal plan. Plus, I haven't rlly met up with any friends in the past few months, rlly, even going back to the beginning of school. For 99% of the time it's been just me, my dad, my brother and my grandmother (though not since december, which was when she sadly passed away). I'm someone who likes having this time to be alone and do my own thing, but I can't lie and say it's enjoyable to be spending practically every day by myself with the only company being that of my brother and father, who are busy with their own things. So that's part of why I'm actually open to working more. Its a pain but atleast I'm doing something and staying occupied while being around the presence of others. I'm not all that big on the prospect of going back to in person classes tho but I know my mental health is going to eventually be grateful for it, even if it's in a totally new environment with people I've never before met. I'm hoping I'm able to form some new relationships, because while I still stay in contact with a few of my friends from HS over social media and such, I feel that they're all moving on with things, and so should I. Being left behind and missing out on making new friends while letting my old ones just slowly distance themselves is legit a terrifying concept to me. I'm praying that it doesn't one day become my reality

    congratulations! I hope everything's been well. IK I've done a shit job at staying in contact but it really does make me happy to hear that things are going well :)

    Glad to hear that you're doing well. Not going to lie, when I heard you say you've been releasing stress and negative energy, I imagined you just rolling joints and eating munchies, lol. It's good that you've decided to take care of yourself. I hope you get to achieve your dreams on becoming a songwriter, it sounds like an interesting profession. Never been one for music but I think it's a great way to express your creativity.

    Good luck with asking your crush out, it's a great feeling. It's something I'll never forget. Hope you continue to stay happy, wishing you the best.

    Moving's a hassle. I've only moved once in my life but I remember the process taking months. I was reluctant to move at first considering that the condominium I was staying at was where I practically grew up. I had lots of memories there, made friends with my neighbors (although they left prior to me), and much more. While the current condominium where I live is bigger and nicer, the vibes I get from it just isn't the same. Good luck with moving though, hope you and Ezz get some rest soon when everything is done.
    That's quite the drastic shift in courses. Do you plan on shifting again? Or are you fine with your current course? While it's good that you've shifted because you realized that you aren't too fond of your current course, considering that you're in your 3rd year of college, unless you plan on taking college for more than 4 years, I think it's best if you stick with computer science. I've heard stories of people who constantly shifted courses while they were in college and their outcome wasn't too great.

    Congrats on getting engaged though, that's a dub.


    Enjoy high school, if you got great friends your experience will be dope af no matter what. Promise.

    Sounds like reselling is something you're really into. Will you consider opening up a consignment and retail store later on in life? It's a legitimate business in my opinion and is underrated.

    Not from 'merica so I have no clue what it is but if I am to guess, it's something similar to college entrance tests, or is a pre-requisite for college applications. Study smart, take it easy and you'll do fine.

    I definitely plan on sticking with CS. I’m going into my 3rd year and I practically have a year and a half left to finish. All that’s left is mostly just CS classes, I was primarily doing things that were for gen ed and for my now minor in math anyway.

    And thanks my guy!

    Thank you man, this means a lot to me. Also yeah, it's cool to write songs and rap it to a beat, trying to improve my skills everyday :D
    Thank you again man, hopefully life will keep on being like this!

    Kind of, yeah... ap classes are pseudo college classes. They're weighted differently than other classes and scoring well on some of them mean they can count towards not having to take a class in college.

    So far so good. Honestly at this point, just trying to flow through life. *thumbs up*


    My place is still under a “stay-at-home” order with COVID-19 and all. However, I do what I can to stay physically active everyday and just grasp onto hope that things will get brighter. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for others, but I too wish everybody the best in life and that we all stay strong in unity, peace and all love with one another.

    @Netherr The plus side to this is we're only moving a few blocks from where we are now. We learned a big lesson when we moved cross country and only spent 3 days packing. I've been preparing for about a month now. It still feels like there is so much to do but Ezz said that I've done a lot more than I realize. We're counting down to move in, it's about 4.5 days now. Keep telling myself that it's almost time to decorate.

    I get what you're trying to say now. One of the colleges I applied for had certain conditions in their entrance exam. If you score a certain number of points in that section, you don't have to take up that class in college anymore. Although I'm not entirely sure if that condition applied for me because even though I passed, it wasn't the college I wanted.

    I feel you man. Despite the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the virus over a year ago, some countries such as ours still face the issue as if we're new to pandemic. It's honestly infuriating knowing that a negligent government combined with irresponsible countryfolk can ultimately shape your reality. Considering that I strictly abide to the rules such as going out as little as possible and wearing a mask at all times when in public, it's frustrating to see that your efforts are in vain because other people don't follow so that leads to the extension of the quarantine. If only everyone could follow rules and regulations, oh well.

    Hope you're coping well though, I'm not sure what the living conditions are like right now in Canada but I don't think it can't get any worse than where I'm from. So if you feel like you're the only one in this, I'm with you. Same as you, I'm just trying to flow through life.

    I hope you find a dog and a cat to adopt.
    Out of curiosity, how do you feel about moving? Do you feel nostalgic and sad that you're leaving the place where you spent a good years of your life in? Or am I the only one who easily gets sentimental.

    Life for me has been going pretty fine.

    I'm almost to the end of another school year and it's been a huge pain. I've been preparing for another Summer job this year. I've been working out and it feels awesome to not be stuck in my house all the time. I've also been planning to find a college to go to which has been going good.

    Honestly, I'm sad to be moving. A lot has happened here. Some bad but a lot of awesome things. I had to give up my chickens, my gardens, my plants. Those were my way of dealing with my anxiety and depression. I'm trying to convince myself that the new place will have a lot of good things too. Just a new chapter.

    You're already looking for a college? I could've sworn I met you when you were like 12 and eventually got caught for lying about your age when you were first promoted, lol. Damn time really does fly. Good luck with your summer job, and glad you can enjoy going out and not being stuck at home.

    Damn, it must suck having to give up a lot of things, especially those that have sentimental value for you. How come you couldn't bring your chickens and plants with you?
    Yeah

    We have no place to keep them. The only plants I can have are my houseplants.

    Life is pretty chill lately. I would go out with friends way more often then other years, play more games and try to complete them and be on a Discord server that I own that has recently been booming with people in Voice Channels playing games together at different times.

    Education is still online however and will be online for the rest of this year. Next year, hopefully I will be able to go back on campus.

    The games I am currently playing right now is Yakuza Kiwami and Fire Emblem: Birthright. I really do enjoy these two games immensely. Anyone heard of these games before?
