Writing vs Schoolwork

I am excited for writing, but also, I have had so much time to write over the past few days, because of snow days.  And that too, I have been neglecting so many duties. I have so much studying to do.

But writing is important to me. It’s my only hobby. I don’t even get social contact with actual people, as much as I would like, and writing doesn’t really replace social contact, but it’s something that I should be allowed to spend my time on, nonetheless.

Now that I have an awesome new laptop that is super light, I should be able to take it to school with me and write during any downtime that I have. I know that this year of my schooling is the busiest year, and I have to be 100% or more productive. That sounds unrealistic since nothing can be 100% efficient, yet, I am going to try and defy chemistry and physics to make my dreams come true. I want to be a writer, and I want to get published, and most of all, I want to have fun. Studying isn’t fun all the time. The most fun studying gets is when I get to study with a friend. Yet, writing is amazing because I can entertain myself with it.

And I feel good about it. It’s exercising my brain. It’s being productive which is something that a lot of people (not just me) are obsessed with in this day and age. In any given moment that I am writing, what I am writing at the time could become something in the future. It might not. It might just sit on my hard drive for eternity. But guess what? If I see a piece doing that, I’m going to put it up on Figment or AO3 (I haven’t posted anything on there yet so I don’t have an author page) or my other writing website or here, even, since I made this blog to be legit, as opposed to that one where I used a nickname. Actually, I may just copy the posts from that old website to this one. There’s really no need for that one, even though it has an awesome url.

In conclusion, writing is my life. It’s a part of my life. I am going to make time for it. I am going to figure out a way to study and get the scores that I want, since I school is also important to me, as are grades, and whatnot, but I just have to figure out a balance.

Which is really hard, I know, but I’m going to try. And while I figure it out, I’m going to keep writing. even if I write a little too much. There’s really no such thing. I’m going to be happy that I have documented my life through writing when I am older. My life won’t change dramatically, depending on if I get a 36 or a 34 on the ACT. But if I keep writing, and I get that much better that much faster, I could be a published author some day soon. And that’s one of my dreams. It’s not really my dream to get a 36 on the ACT. It would be really cool, but seriously, that’s not a worthy dream. I want my dream to help others. If I become a published author, what if my stories help someone? That would be cool.

In conclusion … again!…. I want to help people. I want to write. I want to be dedicated to writing, and I want to use my determination to write.
