Relay for a Cure!

Relay for a Cure!

Today was Relay for Life in my community and it is one of the days I look forward to all year! This year, it was beautiful out and I walked five miles of laps around the track.
Peace. Love. Hope. Relay 2014.

Return of the Rose

It’s that time again, Bachelorette season is back and because Juan Pablo’s personality was so unbearably un-watchable, I’m reluctant to continue watching but I’ve decided to give it another chance. I am mostly watching it for three reasons: There is nothing else I watch on Mondays anymore, I like Andi, and I like dudes ❤ hehe

It was really sad though that Eric had passed away and its going to be weird seeing his chemistry with Andi progress…. AND I totally felt for the one contestant Josh B. who didn’t get a rose boutinere, Not only because he was cute but because it sucks going to all this trouble and then getting eliminating before getting the chance to even talk to the girl… :/ #bummer

And now for the moment you all have been waiting for!!! My friends and I did another draft because really what else serves as incentive to watch this drama… And my picks consist of what I consider to be some pretty good odds:

  • Marquel
  • Brian
  • J.J.
  • Andrew

Fingers Crossed!

I recently found this on the internet and it made me think because while I am experiencing this right now, I don’t know how I feel about it. It sucks to lose friends and I agree that it is a natural part of going forward with your life but it always doesn’t have to be that way. Don’t rid yourself of the people in your past who love you just because you think its time to “growing up”. I think that growing up means that you are becoming who you want to be, figuring out what is important and real. Someone with dreams and goals, someone who makes mistakes and learns from them. Shedding friends is not the only part of growing up. Realizing that you must cherish the ones who really matter, new or old; this is the true mark of “growing up”.

Keep Calm… Only 2 more days :)

Keep Calm... Only 2 more days :)

Its not the last day of my semester BUT it is the last day of my pre-student teaching in my 5th grade placement! And although it is bittersweet to be saying goodbye, it was one of the most rewarding and enjoyable placements I’ve experienced thus far! I am so glad for the teachers and students I got to know and grow with 🙂
