Thankful

So I sat down a couple times this week to blog and I was having ads on the screen that ended up being a virus preventing me from blogging but virus has been deleted and problem fixed so here I am!

I have been thinking about everything that I am thankful for!  There is so many things!  From the little things....
House over my head
Food in my belly
Water to drink

To the meaningful things...
Family
Friends..New & Old

To other things...
The education I am getting
Car to take me to and from college
A job..even if I don't work as much as I would like :)
An amazing daycare family I had for a year..who I love and all those precious kids!
Money
My life!! :)

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!
Did you do any Black Friday shopping?!  None for me!  

Leave in the comments what you are thankful for and if you went shopping on Black Friday!! :)

Lung Cancer Awareness Month

November is Lung Cancer Awareness month.
The following things I am talking about it not for the sympathy or anything else other then to record it for me to look back on.  What has become the point of this blog is to record what is happening now in my life for me to look back on in the years coming.  

My grandpa was diagnosed with Lung Cancer on September 30, 2013.  Now this isn't something that was out of the blue, I knew that we had tests for it a year ago and was negative and was getting the test done again.  But still, that is a lot to take in and it isn't easy.  I already have one Grandpa watching over me in heaven who died of Melanoma.  So it's hard to think that I could lose my last living grandpa of cancer also.  I definitely have hope that because we found this cancer so early on that it can be defeated.  But with his Dementia and just aging in general, this is even harder on him.

So today, I wear white/pearl/clear for lung cancer awareness.  
My colleges relay for life has put posters up about wearing white on this day, I'm not sure if it's just something we are doing because of the month or not.

Happy November & Lung Cancer Awareness month!

This Time In The Semester

We are in the time of the semester where I am starting to lose my motivation to get things done!!  SO close to the end of the semester.  
Crazy to think I've almost already finished my first semester of college!

There is so much going on right now.
Exams, quizzes, papers due, ect.

But I know I can do this

So here is some Pinterest inspiration for me and anyone else that needs it!







Happy Wednesday! :)

Unwritten

"Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten"

Do you know that song?  Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield.

I heard this song for the first time back in 8th grade and it has always kinda stuck to me.  And today it is on my mind.  This song relates to a lot of different things and really has got me thinking.

My life is still unwritten..It has 18 years worth of pages filled.
But there are so many years worth of pages to be filled still...

"I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find"

There is so much more that is going to happen in my life that I have no clue about.  Like who I am going to marry, how many kids I will have, where I will work after college, ect.  

It is really crazy to think about.  So much of my life is unwritten.  My ending if unplanned and I have a whole blank page waiting for me.  To fill with memories, ect.!  Just shows me to fill these pages with good memories and enjoy life!! :)

Now go listen to that song and fill your life pages with fun memories!

What College Has Taught Me in 11 weeks

I've been in college for 11 weeks (Yes, I counted it).  I've learned a lot so far and college has taught me many things!  Today I'm going to share what I've been taught!!
  • Your going to meet LOTS of people in college.  Some people you will be friends with for awhile, some longer, some people you will only see once or twice, some people you will see all the time, some people you will like, some you won't.
  • This ain't high school anymore!  Homework will overtake your live!  Get homework done early, it will save you stress!!
  • Make time for yourself!!  Everyone needs a little ME time everyday!
  • Don't go into college thinking you will be good buddies or best friends with your roommate.  Sure it might happen, but more then likely not!!  
  • Let your roommate do what they wish and could worry about it.  You don't need any more worries and unless it is affecting you, you shouldn't worry.
  • Agendas and To-Do list are the best!  USE them! :)
  • Wear supportive shoes if you are walking a lot!  Otherwise you will have to deal with foot pain!!
  • Give yourself time to procrastinate..you know you will do it!!
  • Go to the nurse if it's free, free things will help you!  Poor college student!!
  • Also, if there is free tutoring use it!!  It has helped me SO much :)
  • Don't have 8am classes every day of the week...yeah you can survive, but sleep is important!
  • Most of all, Enjoy yourself!!  Make friends, put yourself out there and have fun!

New Type Of Busy

I think the title pretty much summarizes why I haven't been blogging!  Been Busy!!!

But this type of busyness is a whole new level of busyness compared to high school and ever before!  Really seems like all I do is go to classes, tutoring twice a week and HOMEWORK HOMEWORK HOMEWORK!!  Homework really is my life!!  Add in a little friend time, working and me time!  And then there is actually forcing myself to be in bed by 10pm, because I have learned how fast 7am comes!!

There really isn't much to update on myself!  Since fall break (3 weeks ago) I have been back home for both weekend.  But now I won't be going home again til Thanksgiving break (AKA end of the month).  

For those of you actually reading this, thank you & hopefully I will blog again soon:)
