The love of reading and writing!

Before I started school I wrote a lot of creative writing pieces. I would have dreams, wake up then write down what I could remember. Throughout the previous summer I finished two books then in the fall I started my third. For me writing was easy I could spend hours sitting at my desk with music on and type away the day. When I was younger I found creative writing class in high school so difficult. I could never came up with a story line; now I can come up with anything on the spot. I found with writing it was a stress reliever; simpler to reading books. When I was younger in my spare time I would have my nose in a book. I would have to finish it within a day or so because I was too eager to get to the end. Growing up my dad read the Harry Potter books to me; I know they’re not your typical bedtime story but I loved them. By the time we finished a book the movie would come out. I’m going to be 100% honest I read the Twilight series as well. My friends and I were totally hooked, and we all went to the premieres of the movies. Now we look back on it and laugh.

Now I write stories for the fun of it, I never thought I would say that!

Times sure have Changed!

As of recently I have been watching my twelve year old cousin. Being the cool cousin I am she feels comfortable to talk me about things. Now I remember being her age and I definitely wasn’t concerned about how many likes I get on an Instagram post or if my crush opened my Snapchat. When I was 12 I was worried about my basketball practices, and hanging out with friends after school! She explained to me that it is hard to turn off the social media, and she finds herself wanting to check it constantly.  I’m happy to say that she and I both turned our phones off for a bit to take a break. She told me that even in school she finds it tough to even focus with her phone on, and that throughout the day her classmates are constantly on their phones.

She also told me about the couples that are together at her age.That it is completely normal for 12 year olds to go “all the way” with their boyfriend or girlfriend. I was shocked this was not a thing when I was her age. Then I was concerned that she was involved in sexual activity too! She assured me that she knows that she’s not ready for that. Which makes me ask, do her classmates think they are ready for that or feel pressured to act like they are ready?  Also are parents and teachers fully preparing these kids for what comes with being sexually active?

My cousin informed me on many topics that surprised me but this took the cake. At her age I had a “boyfriend” but I didn’t know what that meant. We would hug goodbye at the end of the day, and get each other candygrams. I don’t think we ever had an actual conversation because we were too nervous around each other.

I think the kids should revert back to the old ways and just be awkward with each other!

A Week of Challenges

This week has been one for the books! School is getting more hectic and to top it off I finally caught the cold that’s been going around. As the end of the semester comes the assignments and tests keep piling up. My Sunday’s are filled with books and pulling out my hair from stress. One thing that really keeps me focus during this busy time is to have a set schedule. Yes I’m talking about time management. Making a To-Do-List is actually a fun thing for me to do. Checking off the items I have finished is  satisfying for me. Also working in my daily workout’s and watching my PVRed shows. Throughout the week I have felt kind of defeated; how can I not with so many things to do. I find myself giving little pep talks to myself to give me a little boost. Coffee really helps too!

So for any of my readers out there that are going through something similar I suggest making a To-Do-List, and if you get overwhelmed do something you love like read a book, go for a walk, take a nap, or treat yourself to something nice!

Thanks for reading!

This will be my first ever blog post! Welcome everyone, I want to give some information about myself so you can get a sense of who this writing these words of wisdom. I am a Canadian girl in her 20’s who is returning to school for Business Administration. I have had an interesting start to my life. After I finished college I went into a program that I had no idea what I was getting myself into; like many fresh out of high school kids. I went into studies in healthcare, and I knew in a matter of weeks that it wasn’t a life long career for me. I finished my studies and got a job a week after graduation. I started at a level entry care position for children. I truly loved it, and going to work for me was fun. After a few months past I was given a promotion; which was exciting since I was only 19 and getting more money was cool. With this promotion came with many more responsibilities like any other job promotion. I was the youngest employee to be in a leadership role with the company. I was a supervisor of a residence for medically fragile children.  I thrived at the job and being in a leadership role was fun for me. This job had many benefits but also came with challenges. I barely had a social life; I rarely saw my friends and family. It was hard for me.  After being in the new position for a while I started to hate going to work. Coworkers would tell me “get out while you can”; which got me thinking. I knew healthcare was not for me; the hours were too unpredictable and I wanted to do the things my friends were doing. So after long consideration, and many sleepless nights I decided that the best thing for me to do was to go back to school.

The next day I told my boss; we both cried but agreed it was the best course of action for my future (she was pretty cool about it). I moved back into my parents house after living on my own for 3 years, and took some time off.

Of course the time off didn’t last long; I love to work. This brought me to getting a job with American Eagle at the local mall. The work atmosphere is 100% different from my last job; in a good way. Everyone there is around my age, and it’s fun.

After missing out on many activities with my friends and family I have been trying to catch up on lost time. Every weekend my friends want to do something fun, and my family is always doing something together. During this time I went to the Open House at the local college. I thought living at home and driving to school would be the best decision financially. After speaking with the course coordinator for Business Administration I was hooked. It was completely different from my previous career path, and I was excited.

Now here I am! I’m finishing my first semester soon of the program, and I’m loving it. I’m very excited for the future, and what is to come.

If my story has interested you visit again! I came interested in many things from reading to writing. Fashion to going fishing. I am the definition of Jack of all trades!
