Show and Tell // A Life of a Student-Blogger

Hello there!

Slide3

If you’re going to meet one of my classmates and ask him or her the question “What do you remember about Jerrod?”, I’m 100 percent sure that they’re going to answer “he’s a blogger”. My whole class knows that I’m a blogger and it was (emphasize on the ‘was’ because it’s not anymore) a major buzz around my circle of friends.

One thing they don’t know is that it’s so freaking hard to manage your blog and school. It’s definitely a challenge that I’m still trying to figure out especially for me since I also join extracurricular activities in school and I run an online magazine so in total, I manage 4 things: school, blog extracurricular, and online magazine (it would be 5 if you’ll add my personal life).

For this Show and Tell post, I’ll let you have a peek into my life as a student/blogger!

slide1

As said before, it’s hard to manage both schools works and blog works and add some extracurricular activities from school and an online magazine. Basically, the formula for a very stressful life is blog plus school.

One very hard task to do is organizing and managing. It’s really hard to be so freaking organized so I’ll praise you right now if you can organize everything then add managing the tasks you just organized. It takes discipline for you to manage a lot of tasks in one day because there’s a lot of distractions. Your phone, your annoying little sister or brother or your cravings. Everything can be a distraction so it takes a lot of discipline for you to avoid these distractions.

Now, whining aside. I know I’ve said it’s a very stressful life but IT’S FUN! I seriously think that there’s still fun in this student/blogger lifestyle. I love to learn new things and discover and just let my curiosity out and do that in school, and I love to write and just get my thoughts out there and blogging is a great medium for that.

Also, with this kind of lifestyle, I’m also stepping out of my comfort zone which I seriously think is a scary thing to do but I believe in the saying that great things never came from comfort zones. Also, with this, I’m also learning to be adventurous and to take risks.

slide3

I know this is so cliché but it’s so true! If you’re not organized at all, everything would be such a huge mess!

I always keep a notebook where I always write all the assignments and projects I need to do or exams I need to study for. I also write some blog posts ideas. I also write some tasks I need to do about the online magazine. I write to-do lists each day and do at least the 3 most important things to do in the lists. Just to make sure, I also write the to-do lists on sticky notes (thank you to the person who invented sticky notes) or in my phone. This kind of stuffs really helps me to get organized and get through the day nicely!

So grab a notebook or a journal or a planner and write all the things you need to do and sort them out. Always write a To-Do list and make sure to them, prioritize and focus on what’s important, and you’re good to go!

slide4

It takes tons and I mean TONS (!!!) of patience.As I said before, the student/blogger lifestyle is very stressful so a bucket of patience and another extra bucket would be needed.

As for me, I don’t have the enough patience and I tend to be always frustrated at things and stuff so what I always do sleep, eat and drink. I don’t really know why but sleeping, eating and drinking just helps me to calm my nerves down.

I hope you enjoy this post! I’ll see you soon! Bye!

 

Show and Tell // A Day in A Life

Hey there. Sorry for not posting even though I said that I’m surely back but yes, I am. I’m just preoccupied with a LOT of schoolworks since our finals are coming and this computer I’m using is lagging but it’s okay now, I guess. Enough with this, I hope you enjoy this post!

Hello!

slide5

I love organization! If something isn’t organized, I’m going to freak out (this is both hyperbole and not hyperbole) and I can say I live an organized life (sometimes messed up) and to maintain this organization, I need a routine.

Routine for me is very interesting and I don’t even know why (I’m such a weirdo) and I thought maybe sharing this routine of mine but I had a problem how. And then I thought of making a Day in a Life just like what every Youtuber do but instead of a video/vlog, I’m doing it in a post! Let’s go, shall we?

slide1

Of course, your day won’t start if you don’t wake up. Because of school, I always wake up in 5:45 AM. In the weekends, I usually wake up in between 7:00 AM to 9:00 because my body clock is adjusted but when I slept early, I wake up 3:00 AM to 4:00 AM.

What do I do after I wake up? In weekdays, I prepare my bag (if I didn’t prepare it) and my school uniform, and then take a bath. After I take a bath and wear my uniform, I eat breakfast (if not in rush) and check my phone. We leave the house at 7:00 AM because I am always with my Dad so it really takes a long time to leave the house. In weekends, I usually check my phone, eat, read, write a To-Do list.

slide2

`My first class starts at 7:30 and of course, to avoid being late, I need to get in the school before that time. Also, in a day, we have a specific schedule so my schedule depends on the day. If it’s Monday, my first class is English and if it’s Friday, my first class is Social Studies.

slide3

My dismissal time is 3:30 PM and after dismissal, I usually stay in school and do activities like group works, extra curricular or just seat works that needed to be passed at the end of the day.

slide4

Since the campus where we go is close to the hospital where my mom is working, I usually go there to get extra allowance (YAY FOR ALLOWANCE!) and any food like food for dinner or snacks to eat. Also, when my sister needs something from my mom, my mom will give it to me so I can give it to my sister.

slide5

I usually get home around 5 PM and what I do when I get home is just relax because some days can be really tough. I always do this so I can’t freak out when doing works on both school and blog. That way I can do the task quickly.

slide6

After one hour of resting and relaxation, I do my homeworks. If there’s no homework, I either go back to resting, do something random, binge watch or do some blog works.

slide7

One hour after, I eat but sometimes, I don’t eat because I’m doing a hard homework or a group project that I need to do immediately but when I don’t have those, I eat dinner usually around 7 PM

slide8

Around 7:30, I do anything I want or need to do. I usually continue doing my homeworks and project but if I’m finish with them, I’m on my social media (ugh, I’m such a typical teenager!), doing blog works, reading, binge watching series or having a movie marathon.

slide9

After doing a really long homework or a project, or writing a long blog post, or just after a movie marathon, I sleep around 11:00 PM or worse (The worst time I go to sleep is 2:00 AM)
