Second Semester: As Told By Grey's Anatomy

Second Semester: As Told By Grey's Anatomy

But then after all the fun is over, the exams kick in and you are right back to waking up before 10 every morning.

When you first get back from break, all you can think about is getting back to your friends and participating in all the fun activities for welcome week. 

But then after all the fun is over, the exams kick in and you are right back to waking up before 10 every morning. 

When your professor hands out the syllabus... and there is an exam within the next two weeks... 

When you regret signing up for classes earlier than 12 o'clock...

When you refuse to get out of bed to go to class... 

Then you just have to look on the bright side and get through the day... 

When you go out for the first Tuesday of the semester... 

And then Thursday, Friday and Saturday.... 

When you sleep through your 8 a.m... again...

When people ask you about your spring break diet...

When you think you should start exercising again... 

But then you find yourself back on the couch... 

When your friends are talking about how happy they are all the time...

But then you reach a new level with your best friends...

When your mom calls you to see how you are doing...

Will someone please tell me why I took the hardest classes ever? 

When midterms roll around and all you can think about is how stressed out you are... 

When you can't go out with your friends because you are in the library studying...

And how you haven't gotten a full nights sleep in weeks...

You finally get to sleep and all you want is to be left alone...

When you walk into your exams like a boss...

But you leave like...

When you try to explain how you feel to your friends...

Realizing spring break is around the corner...

The feeling of going food shopping for the first time in like a month...

Valentine's day is also during second semester so there's that...

When you neglect your foundation and mascara for a good week and you have been sitting in the library for 24 hours...

But in the end, time does fly and you will inevitably miss the all nighters and the nights out with your friends... 

And then you get all emotional about leaving everyone...

And then you are right back at the beginning, just waiting for next fall so you can do it all over again.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Trying to figure out what to do in life.


I never saw the crossroad

Where I could cross n' roam

Under an arch or dome. [1]

I just kept on the road

That was laid out,

Told to hold out

Till it pays out. [2]

Now I think its too late

Been walking too long,

Classes are all wrong

But masses too strong. [3]

So I follow with my head down

And chest up, succeeding cause

I'm too scared to fuck it up. [4]

But I have a need to lead,

Top-down and gears up

Leaving nothing to the dust.

But if I drop out, I'm a fuck up. [5]

Is it better to live and rust

Or drive till it busts

With trust you can find the way? [6]

[1] - Play on roam/Rome. Starts the poem by expressing the feeling of being trapped in my path in life. I felt like I never got the chance to figure out what I wanted to do.

[2] - I think a lot of it was I was following what people told me I should be doing.

[3] - I have a feeling that it is too late to change my course of life. I'm in a college for business, taking classes about business, and everyone around me wants to do business.

[4] - This is saying that even though I am not passionate about what I am doing I am still trying to succeed only because I'm scared of failing or quitting.

[5] - I want to leave and lead myself, do something where I'm not following but I don't know how to do that. This part starts a car reference, idk I've been watching Formula 1 on Netflix and its dope.

[6] - This is the question I've been asking myself, wondering if I should continue on with my path or follow my passion.
