I woke up this morning believing it was yet another day.
The sun was shining through the cracks in my window, attacking my eyes, screaming ‘wake up’, wake up’, wake up!’. So begrudgingly I rolled out of bed. I wasn’t in the best of moods I admit, I’m never the type that wakes up like a Disney princess, ready to take on the world, I’m more the type that wakes up like a bowl of slime. I feel icky and slow and disgusting. I don’t really come to my senses until the water from a cold shower is tumbling onto my head and I can finally breathe.
I did the usual, made myself smell and look fabulous. Since I’m mostly planning on revising today for my last ever A2 English exam I have tomorrow (Wish me luck please), I didn’t put on makeup since I’m not planning on leaving the house. So after all that morning prepping I put on my comfy clothes took out my revision books, notepads, and pens. Then after that I picked up my phone and decided to procrastinate for 10 minutes.
It was at that point as I was scrolling down my Instagram feed did I realise that it was National writing day, as it was trending on the hashtags with #tellyourstory and #Nationalwritingday. Surprised I looked at the calendar on my laptop and realised it really was National Writing day.
‘Perhaps I should write something’ I thought. I usually always write something on National Writing Day, although these pieces of work and stories generally end up inside my treasured little notebook of dreams and rarely ever see the light of day. However since I had started this blog recently I decided that today I would publish something on my blog.
What should I publish? What should I write, I mused. Should it be an inspiring piece of motivation that would drive youths to run to the stars and grab their goals by the coattails. Or should I write a piece of poetry that could become phenomenally popular and perhaps change the hearts of those that read it and make a kinder world for tomorrow. Or should I write something about myself, write something about how I felt when I woke up this morning. A type of boring daily blog entry.
So out of all those intriguing and fun choices I decided to obviously do the most boring one. To gather readers here to look at a teenagers thought processes. This entry is just a product of my whimsy. However I hope it has been fun to read and I hope you aren’t pulling your hair out by the end of this post, feeling exasperated, like ‘Is that it? I thought there would be more to this?’
Well sorry to disappoint, this is a piece on my thoughts and feelings on the morning of National Writing Day. I hope some of you have found this entertaining.
Thank you so much for reading!
P.S, If you’re in the mood, comment and tell me what you did on the morning of National Writing Day.
