I knew there would come a day when my headphones would break. That day came awhile back, but they were still usable. One side was a little loose, but the other side was still fine. But then that one loose side broke completely.
At first, I dreaded the coming days. My boyfriend reassured me I’d be ok, and that he’d bring his toolbox next time he comes over to see if he can fix them. So, I’m holding off on buying new ones. If he can fix them, great. Until then, I’ll be using a pair of headphones I got awhile back during my first year in high school. They’re get the job done, but, I can’t wait to see if my good headphones can be fixed so I can wear them again. If not, it’ll be time to go shopping once again.
I hope to have good headphones by the time school starts for me. If not, it might get difficult coping in the classroom for three hours on end, three days a week. This year, I’m going to be a senior. I’m probably going to have a busy schedule, and therefore won’t be able to blog here as much.
My schedule won’t just be busy because of school, but also because I will officially be sworn in as a court appointed special advocate volunteer very soon. I was going to training for that, and it just ended, and I’ve been silent on here because of it. That, coupled with school, is going to take up a lot of my time. I’m not sure how often I’ll be here. But I will do my very best to update the people who still follow me.
Because school will be starting soon, I’m hopefully going to come up with a new and improved coping mechanism list. I read an old article of mine on Misophonia International where I was talking about how I coped in school, but I want to try something new. Or at least improve on the things I already do.
I’ve been coping well enough in other areas of my life. I’ve picked up exercising again (I stopped for a little while) and am more committed to exercise not only to improve my mood, but to relieve certain aches and pains in my body, relieve muscle tension, and build up muscle to get stronger. I have high hopes that that’ll help me cope with my misophonia, because it helped last time.
I hope to talk to you all soon. Until next time!
