Keeping Up: Week 2

Website, Instagram, Blog... It's happening!

Keeping Up: Week 2
T.E. Reed Photography

Another week has passed, and I have to admit, I was horrible at keeping a video log this week! So much so, that I don't have enough material to give you all a video... so instead I am going to talk about my "wins" and "losses" this week! Wins are things that I have achieved this week, or general positive things that happened. Losses are goals that didn't go as planned, or stressful moments throughout my week. For example, not keeping a sufficient video log was an epic #lossoverwin

However, I do want to share a MAJOR win with you all this week!! I FINALLY created my own website/blog!! I'm still working out some kinks, and I am still working on buying the website domain, but it's finished for the most part :) and on top of that, I now have a Youtube channel you can follow, and an Instagram! Let me explain why I am so excited for this major chapter in my life...

I have always wanted to keep up my own blog, but the problem has been that I wasn't self-motivated enough, or self-disciplined enough to keep with it. Now that I have been processing my inner turmoils and voicing them on The Odyssey Online, I've found the courage to actually keep my goals and move forward to a better life.

More wins for me this week include the continuous achieving of my goal to visit the gym for at least three days a week. This week my roommate and I have pledged to add a fourth day and see how we feel. I recognize that I just feel 100% better and more clear-headed after I exercise, I feel like I could accomplish anything! I'm also more likely to reach for the healthier options when I get my exercise in than when I am sitting around all the time. Also, I find myself getting restless in classes that extend past 2 hours, whereas before i would be able to sit through a six hour class, no problem.

For those who would like to follow, I will be posting throughout the week on both my personal blog and my Instagram.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
