My Life Monday #17

Hello people of the internet. Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve put up a post, but in my defence soccer season is officially here and in full force. I’ve had games almost every day. I am on the girls JV soccer team, and this was the first year we ever went to a tournament. Most girls are new to the team, some aren’t and we placed fourth out of five teams. Not too shabby. I am the new team captain. It honestly meant so much to me when the coach handed me the band that said captain on it and asked if I wanted to take over. I’ve been playing soccer for seven years. It’s my sport. I’m not the best player in the world, but I love playing this game. It’s so stupid but being aggressive makes me feel like a badass, and my friend Andrea and I can vouch for this, when you play it feels like you have a connection with the ball, and as I’ve grown with the name I’ve learned lots of strategy. Besides, I’m definitely a competitive girl that loves to win, so soccer means a lot to me. Oddly it’s a piece of me that I’ve had with me growing up, and it meant a lot to me that my coach recognized me for it and trusted me with getting the team going.

But I also miss running so much. Running joined my life about thid time least year, and it has changed my life. It changed my body, my mindsets, and so much more. I don’t have the energy to run with homework and soccer practice, but I try to make time for it on the weekends, because I miss ab workouts, and just running a straight three miles with headphones on. Funny story, the day after Thanksgiving I think it was. I knew I had soccer practice the next day, and I was feeling kind of flabby. So I just decided to run three miles. I wiped it out like it was nothing. It sucks that most people my age don’t understand how much running can do for you. It’s hard at life, but you push through the pain. When you run through the emotional and physical pain in your life it’s like breaking down a wall. I feel an indescribable high, and it makes me so happy. That and the fact that I can binge whatever I want and not gain fat.

This entire post is going to be a talk about my life right now, perspectives, and thoughts of the moment stuff like that. Like and follow for more if you find me tolerable.

Happy December everyone! Merry Christmas! And all that jazz. I really enjoy Christmas season. It makes me feel at peace and in the moment, and filled with joy giving stuff to my friends and just spending time with them. And with end of December comes new year! This is such an insane thought, but I’ve had this blog up for a year. Wow how it’s grown. But that’s another post for another time.

It’s Christmas time! So I’ve been scrambling to get presents. Actually now that I’m older it’s nice to understand the financial situation of my family, and to not want everything for Christmas. Getting presents for my friends hasn’t been anything super stressed so I honestly went to Dollar General (my favorite store) and bought all my friend some small gifts for Christmas. My boyfriend is the harder one to ship for because I want to get him something really special but not over the top and definitely not expensive.

But the other thing I have to concern myself about in December is finals. Oh the ‘f’ word I’ve been begging people not to say, but it’s here. I have to start studying for it. I am talking all advanced classes, but because I am a Sophmore I cannot take AP classes (kinda happy about that). I can normally handle my advanced and honors classes, but I’m struggling as I always am with Algebra 2 and Spanish those have always been my hardest classes. I have a C in algebra and I am 1% away from a B and this test can make or break my grate for the semester. Ah the stresses! I’ll get through it, but I just can’t stop hustling for a second. Especially with a band concert this week, and lots of games in between. I also have to finish Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in a week and I’m not even half way through, so audiobook here I come.

I haven’t been stressing about it at all really, but at the same time my acne is so bad. I haven’t been insecure about anything in a long time, but this is really starting to get to me. I am trying to eat healthy, and drink water I’m not really stressed at all but it is so red. My bad spot is normally on my chin. It’s red and it hurts so bad. If you have any tips please comment them bellow.

Anyways, thanks for being here if you read to the end, remember good vibes = good life, and the hustle never stops. See you on Wednesday.

My Life Monday #1

What’s cooking good looking? Isn’t it about time for an update? Well, you probably don’t care but I hope you read on. Today is the last day of spring break I am mentally hanging on by a thread. I went to church and everybody was talking about school, and I told them to stop using the “S Word” man that word sends shivers down my spine.

So, I have school tomorrow. WAIT. Did you feel that shiver too? I guess it’s just me. I thought I might recap Spring Break 2017.  I got a lot of time to relax. My friends and I made a lot of plans. I also did a lot of work, my goats are now in my opinion as fair ready as they can get, and I had a lot of good vibes.

My friends John, Victor, and JoJo all got together at my house so they could film at my house for their YouTube channels, and so I could film some things for a possible Film Friday. We took a surprisingly huge amount of Polaroid pictures, watched Nacho Libre and stuffed our faces with pizza, chips, and marshmallows. To top it all of I can’t hang out with JoJo without fighting, and we ended up fighting over the couch. It was a good night.

We took a lot of Polaroids…

My camera Brendon also broke. It scares me every time I think of it. I will probably lose my gig taking prom pictures for my friend, and that camera was like a piece of me because I love photography and now I don’t have a camera.

I am also starting to try and run more, I am running the mile at about 10-11 minutes, once I get into single diet minutes on my mile, I’ll start running two miles. I haven’t been consistently in shape, and not consistently eating healthy, but I am still in shape and still trying to eat healthy. I used to always show during the summer, but now I don’t have to! That means that although I have a lot of work to do, I can do actual full time workouts and have a lot of time to myself, and if JoJo isn’t always at summer camp, and some of my other friends are free we can hang more.

I should stop thinking about the future and focus about the present, because I have to pass my first drivers ed test so that when I turn 15 1/2 I can get my drivers permit. I don’t need to drive, but I would like to have my licence before I go to college, and it’s not like I’m going to have a car and be able to drive to school. Let’s be real high school isn’t a movie. I also need to get a handle on whatever the heck is going on in Geometry I love math, especially algebra but I have to understand how to take the numbers that are in the shapes and put them into the algebraic equations.

In all honesty despite how much I don’t want to go back to Hell (what me and my friends refer to as school), I only have to go for a week, because then the next week I am gone to the fair for another week with no school. But in reality I need to get everything squared away with my teachers so that I can keep my grades up. Last time I was gone for a week none of my teachers gave me the respected amount of time to make it up, not to mention every single teacher has a different confusing policy on how to make up the dang assignments.

But fair week will be great. So much junk food, and my friends and I planed a ride night so we can ride all the rides at the fair. It’s partially for JoJo’s birthday, the rest of the reason for having one is because all of my friends need to experience a ride night at a fair.

As usual this was all over the place, I’ll work on that but for now I’ll catch ya on the flip side.
