An Open Letter to my Fitbit

You're such a good influence on me.

An Open Letter to my Fitbit
Natalyn Chamberlain

Dear Fitbit Alta in Teal,

Let me start off by apologizing to you. I know I said that I only ate 250 calories the other day and that simply is not true. I ate more. I ate a normal amount. I guess sometimes I forget to tell you important things. That's wrong of me, I'll do better next time...

I also may have said that I drank more water than I actually did, but sometimes math is hard. Just take a deep breath and remember I'm not perfect. That's why I need you. To help me out.

Also, can you stop freaking out when I get phone calls when we're together? It's nothing personal, honest. Sometimes people just call me. That doesn't mean you need to get in a tizzy. Talking on the phone doesn't mean I love you any less.

Now that we've cleaned the air, I want to thank you.

Thank you for waking me up on time. Unlike alarm clocks or phone alarms, you don't jolt me awake with loud beeping or music. You gently wake me and help me feel like I got a good rest. Also, I like that you tell me how I slept and when I was restless. It makes me feel like you really care about my wellbeing. In college, it's nice to know you're worried about me getting enough sleep.

I also want to thank you for not being upset when I don't make my goals, but always being excited when I do meet my goals. Studying stops me from walking as many steps as I should or working out as often or intense as I should. You never yell at me. Yet, any time I do make a goal you are more excited than I am. Your encouragement is wonderful.

I know we have our ups and downs, but having you around has been a good influence on me. I am aware of what I eat and what exercise I do. I understand my sleep and what I need to function properly. I even see what kinds of exercises get the results I want. All of this has been great.

We haven't been together long, but this may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
