Guess Who’s Back!

Hello everyone! It’s been a while hasn’t it? I’m back and finished with all of my exams! Thanks to all of you for your patience and encouragement! It’s meant a lot to me. :)

In case you didn’t know why I was gone for so long, I had exams and needed to take a break from blogging to focus on studying, studying, and more studying. I’ve already gotten back some of my final grades and I’m very happy with them. I’m not sure I would have done as well if I hadn’t taken a break from blogging. As much as I’ve missed you all, I’m glad I took the break.

There’s lot of excitement today! Summer is officially here and I’m back to blogging again. YAY! I’ve got lots of fun things planned for the very near future so keep an eye out for some more blog posts and Youtube videos!

I’m super excited to be blogging again! Thanks again for all of the encouragement!

My Typical Monday

homeschoolerday

Hey, guys! Sorry I haven’t written these past weeks. I have literally been doing school this entire time. Anyways, today I’ve decided to post about a day in the life of a homeschooler, my typical Monday. This was suggested by two of my followers, Lisa H. and Grace J.

Typical-Monday

8:00 – My morning begins as I get dressed and ready for school. I try to open my blinds and make my bed as soon as I wake up so that I can start my day looking at the beautiful (and sometimes cloudy) sky.

8:15 – I eat my breakfast with my parents. We usually talk about the plans for the day and what we have for the week. I also check the news for highlights and conversation starters. If needed, I will also finish up some last minute homework before my class starts.

9:30 – My first class begins. I am taking a Logic course that lasts for 85 minutes.

11:00 – My hour and a half break starts. I normally check my email and, if I don’t need to finish homework, I will bake something. I love baking cookie cakes but my sisters love the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins that I make more frequently, now that it’s fall.

12:30 – My Pre. Calculus class starts and around this time, my mom brings me lunch.

2:00 – My final class for the day, French, begins. I feel that this class ends far too quickly. :)

3:30 – I’ve finally finished all of my classes, so to reward myself, I have a snack break. Sometimes, if I have time, I’ll also have a piano break. This is also the time that I tell my mom about my day. She loves hearing my stories and knowing what the teachers are teaching me.

4:00 – Around 4, I start doing my homework for the next day. My homework partner is the Christian Genre Radio or the Indie Worship playlist on Spotify.

6:00 – My sisters come home from their play practice and I greet them happy and ready to hear their stories. We sit around the kitchen island and take turn asking and answering questions before they start on their homework.

6:30 – My dad gets home from work and my family sits down to dinner. I love being able to have a meal together as a family and hear about each other’s day. Plus, my mom is a great cook and that makes dinner time a lot better. :)

7:10 – I check the news again and maybe play piano.

7:30 – I continue to work on the homework that never ends. I will take a break every now and then just to keep myself focused on the task at hand.

9:45 – Exhausted, I head upstairs to get ready for bed. I like to pick out my outfit the night before to save time in the mornings. I also take a shower at night so that I can just get up and go in the mornings.

10:30 – Unless I am absolutely too tired to read, I will read a chapter in my Bible. I am going through a reading plan on the YouVersion app called “The One Year ® Bible”. It gives you a chapter from a couple of books to go through. You can follow me by searching the username: “AbiLeah” on the YouVersion app.

11:00 – My day finally ends, as I turn off the light. I try not to go to bed any later than 11.

Thank you so much for reading! This was a great idea and I like being able to actually see my schedule out on paper (or on a blog post). I hope you have a great day and a great week!
