UPDATE POST.. Remeber Me?








Hey! yeah I know it has been a good minute.

I feel like sometimes I will have a writing high for a good week or two and then I will have dry seasons where you won't hear from me again. I have been doing guest posting where I am allowing other bloggers to write their mental health stories on my blog, but when it comes to me actually having a post with my own words, well I haven't posted such a thing since January!
So what has been going on with me?

School. School has been mediocre I suppose. I mean that in terms of my grades. I am not failing my classes like I did last semester which is good but I'm not getting B's and A's either. Community college and university are two different ball games when it comes to grading and exams. In community college I was doing really well and flying through my classes now in university I am proud when I get a C+ on a exam because of how difficult the professor grades. If I was cruising through my classes and going at the pace I am suppose to be at, I should be graduating by the end of this coming May. That is not happening, I will be graduating next year in May, which is fine by me. I have actually came to terms with that and I am glad that is the case. If I was graduating this May I would be freaking out. I cannot tell you what I want to do next; social work, or law school or both?!  still trying to figure that out and what better way to continue figuring that out than to just stay that extra year in college, pull up my Gpa and give God my hopes and dreams.

My Job. I have tweeted about this a few times before. I am a CNA and I work with mentally disabled adults. I basically do everything for them, I feed them dinner, give them showers, change their clothes and diapers as well as put them to bed. I am not kidding when I say the first 1-2 weeks I would leave work emotional because I did not know how to effectively transfer a patient or how to deal with a patient's mood swings and tantrums. Now that I have been working at the faculty for a little over a month I feel a lot more comfortable.

My Faith. Let's just say God has been gracious. I got this opportunity over my Spring Break to go to a week long conference in North San Diego at Polamor Mountain where my school's Christian club/ organization did bible studies and worshipping. It was definitely a fun and emotional week, where I made really close friends and was able to redefine my relationship with God.




There is a lot I have to say about this conference, but we will leave this to another post! :)

That was pretty much an update of my life. How have all of you been, I have missed writing and actually posting, but I am BACK :).

  1. It's great to have you back! I've been wondering when you'd update your blog. Wow, your life seems so busy. I've seen you tweet about your job but I didn't know what you do exactly. You're such an amazing person. I wish I could pass the tiniest bit of your kindness to my fellow countrymen. It would do us so much good.

  3. Keep going! I agree with you about the extra time. School will be over and then it's working towards another chapter. Sometimes you need to breathe.

"Don't Let Fear Stop You From Living" 

Someone retweeted this quote on twitter and I immediately opened my computer to start writing. I typed it out like three times because it really stood out to me. I have been thinking a lot about the concept of fear lately, especially with all the chaos going on in our world today. After the unfortunate event at Manchester I knew that I wanted to write a post revolving around fear because lets be honest I and I am pretty sure everyone reading this is or has been carrying a inner feeling of fear in their spirit.



What thing/s are you scared of at the moment? Maybe school, losing friends, the future, death, violence, making sacrifices, new job, losing a job, the list can go on. I think so many times we are focused on putting on this face as if we are invincible and have tough skin that we totally forget that hey, you are human and it i…

Galatians 4: 1-71 I’m saying that as long as the heirs are minors, they are no different from slaves, though they really are the owners of everything. 2 However, they are placed under trustees and guardians until the date set by the parents. 3 In the same way, when we were minors, we were also enslaved by this world’s system. 4 But whe…

To The Student Who Is Taking Longer Than Four Years To Graduate...

I have not written a college related post in a long time so I figured why not, especially since this particular one has been on my mind lately. As it seems a lot of people have graduated this month I want to start by saying CONGRATS! to you all. It has been so exciting to hear about all of your post college grad life and your plans for the future.

With that being said, I want to speak in particularly to the student who has not graduated yet, maybe you have one more year and you will not be graduating in that expected four year mark.. or maybe you are still in community college and feel stuck among the waiting lists and endless GE requirements. I'm writing to that student who is scrolling through Instagram looking at all those grad photos of your classmates from high school and your thinking "that could of been me" "that should of been me" "Maybe if I had.." " Maybe I should of.." I want you to pause with those thoughts and the scrolling and …
