I am so done with the summer weather and I want fall to be here already. Where I live it is in the triple digits and humid . I love fall because of the weather, clothes, and all the different foods.  Fall is my favorite season.

Hiatus

I have not published anything for 6 months because of school. I am a microbiology major and there is a lot of work involved. I finish my last class for the summer tomorrow and then I will be on regularly. Life has been so hectic and this is on the back burner for now.

Happy New Year!

For my last day of 2015 I went to my favorite Asian restaurant and to the art muesum. Later more of my family is going to come over and eat pizza. Then we are going to play games and ring in the new year. Despite the festivities I am already planning out the next few months for college , this blog, and my book blog. Here’s to a great new year.

 

 

Helpful life tips

I started college a month ago and I have been thinking about some helpful tips I have learned. Some of them took me a while to put into words. All of these come from my experiences. Life is a mess and very stressful at times. Stress reducing is key.

  • Lay out your clothes the night before. This will save you the hassle the next morning
  • When stressed read a book or watch your favorite tv show
  • Prioritize all the things you need to do during the week. This helps me get the most important tasks done and not to stress so much.
  •  Treat yourself. This is one of the most important things I have ever learned. Self love  makes you more confident about yourself.
  • Listening to music helps me to de stress and relax
  • Travel more. Seeing the world or discovering a new place where you live is amazing. It makes life so much more interesting and less mundane.
  • Clean where you live every week or two. A clean house mean less stress and sickness.
  • Enjoy the little things in life. The good book, the sports game, and the cup of tea.
  • Do not let what other people think of you affect you. You are you. You are an amazing and unique human being.
  • Spend time with friends and family.

Self Esteem

I have been struggling with having good self esteem. Every time I try to find something positive about myself I always find something else that I do not like. I talked to a lot of other people and I found most of them had the same thoughts. I think the problem is we see what other people look like and how they dress. Then we compare ourselves to them. We see what we are not. I have to remember to not compare myself to others because I am a unique and special person. Saying this helps me to have good self esteem. Having a good opinion of oneself is hard but it makes us feel so much better about ourselves.
