Big News♡

So as you have probably noticed, i haven't been posting much lately. I have finally decided that i am going to start a new blog. This is because i feel like a need a fresh start because all my posts seem to be a bit repetitive and i don't like the name of my blog anymore. But the main reason is that i think i have grown out of this blog (and i want a new blog design, woo). I hope you guys are ok with this. I am going away for 3 weeks and when i get back it will be my little holiday project to start up my new blog.

It is going to be called Evie Dylan which is my first and second name. It will be quite similar to this blog but a bit better (hopefully). The post will be better planned and won't all be lists and collages. Hopefully you will all follow my new blog and maybe i will get more followers on Evie Dylan.

Thanks for a great year of blogging. Evie

When School Gets in the Way♡

There is no other excuse to my one month absence except school. I have been exceedingly busy revising for tests, writing essays, making projects and doing every other type of homework there is. I thought for a long time about what to write about and it finally came to me; write about how to get homework done on time but still fit all the other things in. I have done a post on homework and organisation before. This post is more about fitting the other things in. On my walk home from school i mentally prepare what i have to do when i get home and plan out my time and the order of importantcy.

I don't want to write too much because i have already done a post on this, but my best advice is to do your homework as soon as you get home and remember when it is due. Plan what days you will do which homework and don't over estimate how much you can do in one night. If i have a long essay to do i write two pages and check them over on one night then the same the next day then check it all over and print it out on the day after that. Always leave time for printing and sticking.

This is the easiest of all the things you need to organise. The days when i do sport activities i wash my hair and the days i don't i just wash my body or don't have a shower. On school nights i only have time for a shower but on saturday morning i have a long, relaxing bath. I normally leave myself 20 to 30 minutes to have a shower because it takes me about 10 minutes to dry my hair and a bit longer to get changed and do anything else.

Music Practice
Depending on how many instruments you play and how strict your parents are, the amount you have to practise each day varies between different people. All my friends and myself practise everyday for half an hour. I struggle with fitting it in and making up for the days when i can't do it. I recommend getting it over with as soon as you can. Half an hour is not a lot of time so fitting it in after homework is easy. I think the main reason why i don't have time for it is because i am on my phone so much that it takes up all my time. When i have to make up for time i don't do it in one day because an hour of practice is too much, i get bored and distracted. I spread it out over two or three days so i do an extra 10 or 15 minutes.

Extra Things
One thing i always forget to do is leave time for things that only take me a few minutes each like packing my school bag, having a snack, brushing my teeth. Each evening i leave 15 minutes to do this.

How do you guys stay organised?
