Tranquility







tran•quil•i•ty (traNGˈkwilədē/)
noun: the quality or state of being tranquil; calm.

January and February are always the months where I feel at peace. During this time I feel as if I am swaddled in a blanket that is fresh out of the dryer. The days are fast and happy but every minute seems to be stretched out for the long run; it often reminds me of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Lately, my life doesn’t feel like it has been going much anywhere. The days are mundane and have the same schedule as follows: wake up, school, study and finish homework, blog, read, sleep, repeat. 

The only things I do in my spare time are read, watch movies, and bake. There were many opportunities that were available to me over the course of two months, but because of some mishaps I sit at home, lying in bed, and feeling like an absolute dummy.

I think it may be because I often so used to doing something rather than sitting at home. I am much happier doing something productive outside of my house than playing Pottermore on my laptop. I want to get up and see the world. I want to break this bleakness from my life, which is the reason why, despite my shortness and all, I have signed myself up for track and field. 

I know that I am probably going to come home with an hour’s work of Biology coloring homework and my legs shot of soreness after I come home from practice, but it will be a good change.

But for now, let me go and spend much of my time reading. Let me go and spend the rareity of my time take photos of the melting snow. Let me go out and hum songs from Broadway musicals while I rewrite notes. Let me enjoy the last several days of tranquility.

(P.S. Also, I'm freaking out. Read this to find out why.)

    1. Thank you! At first, I had no idea who Sarah was, and I realized it was you, S.W.... which one do you prefer me to call you?

    3. Cool beans! It's okay. ^.^ People sometimes don't associate that Pikachu and my actual real name relate to the same person.

    1. Finding Nemo was one of my favorite movies growing up. Honestly, there was nothing else on TV when my brother and I were browsing through TV channels while staying over at a hotel, so we thought, "Why not?" Watching kids movies when your older gives you a new perspective. ^.^

    2. I think these awesome animated movies seems even better when we watch them after growing up :)
      I watch more cartoon movies than kids do now-a-days (True story) :P

    3. Haha, same (mainly because most of the stuff that appears on TV are either live action comedy and drama, or animated. It's really only three choices). No shame in watching cartoon movies at all. XD

  4. Oh I know! Winter is just so.......I guess tranquil. Sometimes I feel really board. :) I have always loved doing things outside of the house to keep me busy.

    1. Winter is very tranquil. ^.^ But adventure is hidden... we just have to find it.

  5. Oh wow, I don't even know where to start. First though, those cookies (?) look absolutely amazing. Baking is one of my favorite pastimes. And I kind of relate to the whole "tranquil" thing. January and February, I dunno, I don't really consider them tranquil, but I guess they kind of are. To me, the summer months are more tranquil, yet those are the months when I'm always on the go. Not that I don't enjoy staying at home, but being outside, exploring, and experiencing life is kind of more down my alley. :)

    1. Thank you! I think I didn't do the recipe right... don't be deceived by looks! Usually, I consider January and February only because during summer break, I do not see much of my friends or anyone outside of my family, and I am always told to clean. That's how my summer days are usually submitted to unless I sign myself up like crazy for activities. Adventuring is down my alley, too!

  6. January and February are my favorite months. I love winter!
    Also, I wouldn't worry about people you know in real life finding your blog... I was really nervous about that at first, but when the people found out they looked it up, scanned a post or two, and said, "Oh. That's cool!" and never mentioned it again, to my relief. It all works out. To quote Dory, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming." :)

    1. I love winter, too! Yeah, I wish that my showing of my blog could be like that. But often times, I am looked up to by many and they have high expectations for me, and when they see this, well, the bar is going higher and I don't know if I can reach much higher.

  7. I understand so well, Morning.
    Though, I'm home-schooled, so really I don't get out of the house much at all. Lovely post, dear <3
    I enjoyed reading!

    1. Homeschooling sounds interesting, though, and there are so many different ways to homeschool... but then the grass is always greener on the other side, I suppose.

  9. Quiet times are a strange mix of enjoying not having a lot of things to do and wishing that more was happening in life, aren't they? The best thing about quiet times though, is having time to read a lot. Or in my case, time to work on novels without interruption. Good luck with track and field! The sore legs will totally be worth it.

    1. They are, they are! And I do get to read a lot. I've been whipping through the Lunar Chronicles fast. I'm now on Fairest! I'm not looking forward to the sore legs, it will take some time to get used to.

  10. The cookies and soup look good! And unlike you, I *love* it when people I know in real life tell me they read their blog ;)

  11. I love those photos, just have to say! After working hard, a break is strange, isn't it? I hope the track and field goes well:)

    1. I'm always so used to being a bit busy, it kind of makes me uneasy that I have this long break. :) Thank you so much, Kat! The track schedule is demanding, but oh well. ^.^

  12. Beautifully written post. It made me feel so cozy! No need to stress over feeling as if your life may not be going anywhere. I love your schedule! And if it really starts to bother you, you can always start new things. :)

    1. I thought of the same thing, sort of! I'm talking about my quiet schedule, but then writing about this is making me comfortable. Writing helps me disappear a lot. I am trying new things; track starts in two weeks!

  14. I feel the was as you do.. but most of the time I'm so caught up with homework that I don't have space to think about anything out. I think that it's great that you signed up for an extra activity!

    1. Homework and studying takes up so much of my time, but they don't make me tired mentally, which is how it should be, right? XD

  15. What a honest post! I am sure a lot of students can relate. But you are doing a great job immersing in extracurricular activities and developing your hobbies of reading, blogging and things. Keep it up!
