As I have mentioned only about 600 times by now , HIGH SCHOOL IS OVER AND BEHIND ME( that is until January 6th when my results are released). Here in the Southern Hemisphere we have normal school years that run from January to December ( we are sadly not privileged enough to have 3 months of summer holiday , be grateful) . Now however due to our extra time and need to just be free and come to terms with being unemployed (yes I used this joke , despite it being in poor taste and out of context) , we seek out ways to spend our days . Here are some of the possible scenarios occurring at this very moment .My data was obtained through twitter polls (which I think were invented purely for advertisers but helps make trusty life decisions) and drawing on my personal knowledge)
PARTYING IT UP AT RAGE
So first up , rage is a sort of party festival type thing that takes place in my home city and was created purely for matrics to let loose among the myriads of alcohol while “dancing” against each other to some form of electro-music . Definitely not my scene and if I did attend my mother would call every hour to check if I was alive , but it seems to appease the masses and I hope it meets their expectations. This also about the closest South African teenagers get to American High school red cup parties (not that I would know)
BINGE WATCHING TV SERIES AND MOVIES
Perhaps others ,but not me have the restraint to not watch series and movies during the exam period and have now built up this massive pile of things to watch. So the ultimate marathon begins , the real test of speed , strength , agility and endurance. My advice is not to burn out too quickly ,pace yourself and stay hydrated because there’s a long journey ahead.
SLEEPING AND EATING
Pretty self explanatory I’d say . The ultimate hibernation for the summer holidays , oh the irony.
GOING OFF ON VACATION
If you’re lucky enough you get to be whisked off to foreign lands and experience different cultures and you know probably never have a summer romance like in books and movies.
GET A JOB
I truly respect people who work hard to earn their own money and have purpose to their days. Unfortunately , I am unable to join the working folk as no one will employ a 17 year old with no matric certificate.
HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS
This is basically what I have been attempting to do in between all the YouTube spirals . Recently I was a hypocrite as after telling people not to burn their notes but rather recycle , we had a mini bonfire where we burnt a few notes (little I promise) and I cannot describe the feeling of pure bliss I experienced while watching trigonometry notes become engulfed by flames. Seeing as there will be a splitting of my little pangea of friends , I want to maximize my time with them.
That’s about all my little mind can muster , I just hope everyone is just letting loose any way they know how and enjoying a semi-stress free environment.
