Me, Myself, and I

Sometimes, I needed time to myself to recover from life.

Me, Myself, and I

This is a response to the article "Trust Me, Learn To Make Time For Yourself."

The crazy and busy life of college is what I can relate to from the author's article. There were times where I didn't make time to myself because I was busy balancing school work, a part time job, dance, and extracurriculars. I was a busy bee. And as of today, I'm still a busy bee with working full-time, preparing for a national pageant, doing volunteer work, creating content, and more (yeah I know). The author's article made me realize that I need to make time for myself more than ever, especially as I get older.

As a 25 year old Gen Z Filipina American in 2023, life has been filled with ups and downs. Like I mentioned, with everything I do, and along with the ongoing news in the world, I can get really burnt out. I've noticed since COVID started, I've been more burnt out than before. Living in the post COVID world now, that burnt out hasn't gone away. Before I left my old job, I was really burnt out to the point where I didn't want to do anything and I already knew I was leaving for a new job. That burnt out took time for me to recover, which during that time I actually have to prioritize my well-being.

Usually, what I do to make time for myself is either go for a walk outside, walk on my treadmill, do workout exercises from Youtube, listen to music, or dance around. My mind becomes more clear and focus and I feel better about myself both physically and mentally. I try to make time to do those things in my schedule. People wonder how I do everything and the answer to that is simple. Time management is key.

Another thing that helps me is writing. Currently typing this article helps put all of my thoughts down for people to see. I let everything out on how I feel and what I wanted to say. Whenever I write (or should I say type) articles, I wanted to be authentic with my voice and be honest about how I feel while presenting facts and my own opinions. I consider it to be therapeutic.

As I take on different projects and whatever else happens in my life, I have to remind myself that my well-being is important and I should always put myself first before anyone else. Making time for myself is essential for me to become more energize and strong to take on whatever life throws at me. It will always be me, myself, and I in the end as one unique individual.

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.

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.
