I am now writing this post for a second time. I just read a chapter from the book, “Girl, Wash Your Face” and it really inspired me to work on the blog, even though it may be almost midnight. When I first started writing this update a few days ago I started off with the words I’m struggling. I then went on to talk about the good and the bad of my first two weeks of school but I felt that the overall beginning portion of the post gave off a negative vibe; and let me tell you I am in a positive, take on the world, girl boss kinda mood.
Although I am giving out positive vibes I will admit this week has been a roller coaster, but my biggest success of the week? I AM PROUD OF MYSELF. I am proud of overcoming a really bad quiz grade by following up with a 90 on the exam. I am proud that I continued to eat mostly healthy and balanced (no where near my only fast food and soda lifestyle of last semester) even though my junk food cravings were strong. I am proud that in the last 10 days, 8 of them I have woken up at 7 am or earlier… the other 2 being no later than 9:30 am. Most days I wake up before 7 because of obligations such as babysitting or internship (#adulting) but on the days I have nowhere to be I am still up at 7 tackling life. I am proud that I worked out 8 of the last 10 days as well. It didn’t hit me until just an hour ago that even though I felt down, stressed or like I was struggling this whole week that there is so much for me to be proud of. Life really is about the positive thoughts and vibes.
Now that I have talked about all the good in the first half of the month, I will talk about the bad and provide some fire safety tips. Balance people, I am not perfect.
- Make sure your fire alarms work… its all fun and games until you accidently set your basement on fire by starting the washer (in my defense… I didn’t know it was broken)
- Realize that workout clothes and your laptop are not the most important things in life (those were the first things I screamed for when my basement was on fire and then a week later when my apartment building at school had a fire)
- Realize that after having fire trucks come to your place of residence (home and apartment) you will be traumatized of fire alarms (I screamed and freaked out when our apartment one kept blaring yesterday every time we opened the oven)
- Realize that no one should let me cook or do laundry… I obviously can’t.
I know this isn’t a very informational post and is just a simple update, but I hope that if you’ve had a good week or a bad… it gives you the motivation or strength to keep staying positive!
Ps. I am going to call life updates The Diaries this way if you prefer to not read it then you know to check back the later for a different post (:
