New BOOKISH School Year Resolutions

It is that time of year again...going back to school! New teachers, harder classes, and more responsibilities; all great things to look forward to. Right now, this is me:

Because going back to school will mean I will be doing this:

Instead of reading, Internet browsing, blogging and all the fun stuff.

But I am gong to write up a couple of things I want to stick to doing this school year so I can get in some more reading and blogging time. Also, I am going to write up some things that I gotta stick to during the year so I won't  be so distracted with reading and blogging.

  1. Try to read one book a week, and review that book at the end of each week. (One book a week is an accomplishment for me during the school year, that is how much homework I get.)
  2. Do NOT read before gong to sleep. I always end up telling myself "One more chapter", two hours later I am going to sleep at 3 AM , and wake up tired.
  3. Homework first; reading/blogging later. I did NOT stick to that last year, and ended up doing homework at the last minute.
  4. Limit Twitter time. I am addicted to twitter, so I will limit my time to 30 minutes a day. I will try to stick to that.
  5. Take a book everyday to school. You never know when you will have random free time.
  6. Sleep early wake up early. If I don't have to wake up earlier that usual to study, I will wake up earlier to read. 
  7. Study as far as away from books that I read for fun as possible. When I was in studying hell last year, I used to grab a book from my bookshelf and start reading it (short attention span), no studying got done after that.
  8. Have fun this school year! I cannot tell you all the stress I went through last year, I took everything so seriously  I don't want to do that anymore, I will take my school work seriously but not kill myself over it!
How about any of you guys? Do you have any back to school resolutions? Any advice? 

High School students, have a great year!


  1. First of all, you're awesome. This post was adorable. Secondly, wishing you luck and a happy back to school. Shhh...I'm super excited. All my boys will be in school full-time for the very first time. :o)

  3. @Kim OMG thanks! You just made my day! <3 Thanks lol, I hope I can do as well as I did last year. Haha I can see why you are excited. Good luck to your boys too!
