First semester = check!

So I did it. I completed my first semester of college. Woot woot! Go me! lol jk. But really it is quite the accomplishment. I never thought I'd get this far. It's been one hell of a ride. It's so strange. I never thought I'd graduate from high school. I did. I never thought I'd make it to 18. Now, here I am finished with my first semester of college. It's just crazy. I am proud of myself. I know this is huge considering where I've come from. It feels good.
But here comes the bad. I'll be out for a month, a full month. That's a lot of down-time. I'm not really sure how I'm going to handle it. I don't do well without structure. So I have my freedom. The only question is, what do I do with it? My mom and therapist want me to keep busy. They want me to set up activities that are at the same time as my second semester classes. That's cool and all, but I want to sleep in. Part of why I sleep in is so I don't have to eat breakfast. I want to just chill and relax. I don't want to wake up at 8 every morning. I want to sleep in til 10 in the morning and just do nothing til lunch. i still do things throughout the day. I talk with my grandma. I play homework. I watch the news. <--Not a big fan of that. I journal. I exercise (sometimes). I go out anytime my grandma leaves the house. It's not like I sit around like a bump on a log. Still, I see their point. I don't know. So I guess now I need structured activities. Any suggestions?

Congratulations on finishing your first semester that's a seriously awesome thing! Structured activities...I don't know, are there any fun morning gym classes you could sign up for? Or do you do anything like knit or sew? I mean, honestly whatever you decide to do you'll have to really like a lot, because your plan to just hang out and not do anything until lunch sounds totally awesome. :)

Congratulations sweetie! That´s amazing!!
Mmmm do you like gym classes or dance classes? Find something you really really like and do that, if not you´ll get bored and quit it.
