2 Weeks Into January

We are about 2 weeks into 2024, and wow it has already been a crazy 2 weeks for me. My New Years was somewhat boring. Just sitting at home in my bed, although I did go upstairs and watch the ball drop. My sleep schedule also got messed up, I would stay up until 4am and then sleep until 2pm, wasted half my days but it’s okay, I got my sleep! I stayed with my dad for most of the break which was nice because I got to spend time with my younger brother, even though we fight everyday over the stupidest thing. We’re siblings; what do you expect??


Christmas was really good, I got to see some of my family I haven’t seen in a long time. My older brother moved up to Wyoming over this summer so I don’t get to see him as much as I did before. This Christmas I felt really good about myself because I worked hard and I was able to pay for most of the gifts I got for my friends and family. It was awesome to see how happy everyone was with their gifts, and the food, oh my goodness, it was quite delicious. I got some new clothes and everyone on my dad’s side got their own individual Alexa. I found that nice, only because my brother and I are always fighting over the song that is playing.  Me and my brother both got an Xbox, but we always fight over it, like always. (when do we not fight).

The rest of my break was pretty boring, I just had volleyball practice and then a tournament. We definitely could’ve done better but there is always room for improvement. I’m proud of how well we held ourselves together, we had some amazing plays. But wow, I was tired. It’s like we’re constantly playing throughout the whole day, then we have a break. It honestly just makes things worse because your body is calming down and getting tired, so you don’t want to keep playing. And this coming weekend we have the RMR Classic which hopefully we will do well in. 


Then the night of January 8th came. I was quite literally dreading having to wake up early again after my sleep schedule was absolutely demolished. I went to bed at 11pm which wasn’t going to make waking up any easier but I had no choice. Now, I’m back in school until mid-winter break. Wish me luck!
