being the best you can be

Standard

hello friends! it’s now summer! and it’s so exciting! why? because you can FINALLY have that harry potter marathon you’ve been dying to have, and you can finally have those late night phone calls with your best friend and not have it haunt you the rest of the day, let alone week.

i think something i’ve realized is that time is limited. i have control over what i’m going to accomplish and how i’m going to spend it, and more than anything i will never be in my twenties again (aka lots of adventure and personal growth – really focusing on becoming the best you can be). that being said, i’ve realized that being the best i can be IS dependent on where i am, what opportunities lie, & who i’m surrounded by.

ex A: i absolutely love going home; my mom is the BEST cook. So obviously, when i go home, i don’t cook because why would i waste GOOD FOOD?  in fact, i didn’t even begin learning how to cook until i started living on my own, and i’m STILL learning. Now that it’s summer and I’m living on my own (+awesome patient roommate), I’ve been able to cook a new meal at least 1-2 times a week, and it’s great! But, I wouldn’t be able to do this in my previous setting.

When I’m living on my own, despite how much I love going home, I realize that I am becoming the best version of myself. and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, i think it’s a good thing to challenge yourself, take that risk to explore, and realize what nutrients you need to grow. so…i challenge you to do the same. how can you be the best you can be?

current state of the union

Current update on my life guys: I am in a “History of Musical Theater” class at 8 am every Monday, Wednesday, Friday that consists of a solid 12 people. (makes sense to use the term “a dozen” here, dozen’t it?) However, my teacher decided to be generous and wanted to let us sleep in next Friday (aka tomorrow) and have an online discussion where you post one question and answer 2 others due Friday at 5 pm in lieu of class. It’s 12 the night before and no one, not a SINGLE person has posted anything. Now as much as I enjoy learning about the historical progression of musicals… i would find it hysterical if no one wrote anything. THE CLOCK IS TICKING FRIENDS. I’LL KEEP YOU UPDATED.

3/23/16 update: some fools wrote posts so yeah… the assignment still happened. sigh.

why you should try to look nice

Standard

as you know i definitely think it is an art to look good while wearing tees and no make up. tbh, i’ve probably mastered it. totally just kidding. and this is why.

the other day i was wearing a normal vail t shirt, you know. I had worn it all day and honestly didn’t think much of it because this is a typical outfit i wear… shirt and leggings. easy, quick, hot. then i was snapchatting *cute* boy with this shirt on and he responds with… “did you just work out”. ok *cute* boy, if work out means walking to class then YES I DID WORK OUT. also at this point realized that by doing this i could also convince *cute* boy that i work out all the time and am in great shape… hm not a bad idea. hahaha joking. i realized that shirt+leggings = easy+quick+sweaty looking. anyways now i’m trying to look a little nicer/no t-shirts which is failing because i’m currently wearing a $5 long sleeved t shirt from walmart (which are the BEST by the way, i have one in every color). anyways, just wanted to pop in and say hello

Hello!

yours truly,
~sal

ps side note: the waitress at ihop just came up to me and said it is OK to eat unhealthy. that’s RIGHT *cute* snapchat boy at least i LOOK like i’m in AWESOME SHAPE. HA. HA.

 

new pair of sweats

Standard

So I am a strong believer of NOT sticking gum underneath desks or chairs. Partially because in middle school if we were caught chewing gum in class, the janitors would make us scrape gum off of desks. (AKA gum was not allowed). Also it’s just plain mean. I used to only have one pair of sweatpants that I wore all the time. And you know what happened? Yup. I SAT IN GUM. I SAT IN GUM. It was literally on my butt. Like wtf. who puts GUM on a CHAIR. THAT IS SO HEARTLESS. Yeah, I walked from class onto the bus with this piece of whopping chewed sticky gum with some rando’s saliva.

ANYWAYS, long story short, after i tried removing the gum (and no the gum did not come off freaking useless people who stick gum on chairs), I left the pair of pants on my dresser. And it just sat there. And it was yesterday that I finally decided to move the pants away from my dresser. Believe it or not my room looked CLEANER.

The big picture I am trying to reach with this story is that sometimes change can help you see another perspective or clear your view on things. For example, a little tmi, sometimes I wait longer to get my eyebrows done because afterwards my face looks slightly cleaner. (ahhahahah). Sometimes drastic change is nice, friends. Aka a nice change in my grades this sem would be nice. Or a nice change of idk neighbors (sarcastic if you didn’t catch that) or pants. Yes, I have a new pair of sweats that I’m wearing rn. stupid people who stick gum on chairs.

That Thought

Standard

Hello!!!! I’m in fifth period being absolutely useless because I have so much homework, but I’m not being productive. And this is like my biggest pet peeve. Especially because I won’t get home til 9:30 today :O

Anyways, there was something I wanted to talk about. You know what the saddest thing is? When that person who is the happiest person and always makes your day, is sad. It literally kills because seeing that one person falling apart, just makes you cry. I don’t know if you’re like this, but seeing someone cries makes me cry.

Just a random thought. And now I should probably start homework again…but now to peer counseling.
