This last few days, scratch that, WEEKS have been hotter than any day I experienced this summer. They have been anywhere from 75 to 90 degrees. The real struggle though is not knowing how to dress for the day. This is basically what my daily routine has become:
7am: Cold enough to wear a t-shirt and jeans, maybe a sweatshirt.
7:45am: Walking to class, you start sweating, cause humidity decide to pick up in the last 45 minutes.
7:55am: You’re relieved cause the buildings are much cooler than outside.
8am: You start sweating again, because no part of these building are the same temperature.
9am: You get out of class and head outside to realize it is now 15 degrees hotter than when you first went to class.
PLEASE tell me anyone else has struggled with this. I literally have no idea how to dress for class in the morning so I end up going through like 3 different outfits. If any one has any tips let me know. I would greatly appreciate them, other wise share your stories if you can relate!
Til next time,
When I first got my tattoo or even before I got it I really just wanted something that was pretty and something I liked. Sunflowers just so happen to be my favorite flower and that was good enough for me. I knew that a sunflower reminded me of the sun for the obvious reason and that it made me feel happy. To many a sunflower can mean loyalty, which is something I have a great deal of for my family. My family is the most important thing to me, they come before anything else. It’s the honest reason I chose a school that was only 20 minutes away from home. To know that my support system was only a hop, skip, and jump away. I can still attend family events without it being a hassle to find a way home.
A sunflower can also symbolize adoration, which is something that describes my feeling for my siblings. They are my favorite people to be around, even though the can annoy the crap at me at times. I happen to be the oldest of 6 which has caused me to become the mother hen, or “mom friend” to a lot of other people in my life. I worry about their safety, and hope they aren’t doing anything to insanely stupid. But I am also the person that people come to when they need support, or just a friend to talk to. Even if we aren’t friends, I am all ears and want to help everyone, it’s the older sister in me.
My tattoo also reminds me of how much determination I have. The tattoo artist said to me, “It’s not about your pain tolerance it’s about how determined you are to finish it”. Once I have set my mind on something, I will succeed no matter what it takes and I will complete that goal. This can be shown with many other objects in my life, like the Macbook I insisted I needed for college, but my parents thought otherwise. It took months of convincing, conversations that lead to nowhere and even arguing to make them believe that my decision was what I wanted and was the correct decision for me. But in the end my determination bought that macbook, and it made me sit through the annoying pain of my tattoo.
My tattoo at first was just an object that was permanently on my body but has become a constant reminder of my how much my family means to me, and my caring personality and my determined mindset that helps me pursue my goals.
This was my first ever college speech, and because it is kinda interesting and more so up lifting I thought I would share it! I was a wreck before I had this speech but it went way better than I thought. I actually scored a 90% on it, which exceeded my expectations. I hope you enjoy it, I put a lot of thought and effort into this on.
Til next time,
What your about to read is my summer playlist. I‘ve spent most days inside either working or relaxing (which honestly seems rare now days), even crazier I went swimming for the first time yesterday (7/11/17), I’ve been out of school for almost 2 months! Kinda seems like my summer is flying by and is a waste? But anyway this playlist is songs that make me feel good, and it is a mix of a few genres.
Enjoy and maybe you will find something you have never heard before!
P.s. If you can’t tell this post has been in the making for a little while, sorry about that please enjoy.
