When I Think About Life

"Sometimes you win. Sometimes you learn."

When I think about life, I don't think about going from point a to b to c to d. I think about getting to a, then d, then falling back to b, and so on. So many think that their lives have to be set in stone and always go according to plan. This just isn't accurate, like at all.

As a 10 year old video game nerd, I could have never imagined the life I would be living at 16 years old. As a 16 year old , there was no way in hell I could have ever imagined my life the way it is now. I used to be a goody two-shoes who had it all figured out, or so I thought. First, I would graduate high school (with straight A's of course). Next, I would be off to the perfect university to follow my dreams and live a typical college student lifestyle. On a side note, I still do get to live the majority of the typical college student lifestyle, For instance, ramen noodles and hot sauce are my idea of fine dining and I consistently found myself wondering whether it is all worth it. Anyway, I did graduate with flying colors. And yes, I did go to college, but somewhere in between it all I just so happened to have a beautiful set of twin baby girls. I honestly did not see myself having twins for a very long time. However, life happens and now I could not imagine my life without my precious little love bugs. I have realized that I am on the right path, because it is my path. There were several points in my life where I did not understand why certain things were taking place. Looking back now though I have come to understand that if those things would not have happened I would not be where I am today. I love my little family, and I appreciate all the good, bad, and bumpy roads I have had to travel to get where I am now.

The point I think I am trying to make here is that things do not always work out the way we planned. Life throws us curve-balls, and sometimes we even have a random crowbar flung at us, causing a mild concussion. We do not always get what we want, and that is okay. We lose, we win, we struggle, and we strive. In the end, though, it will all be worth it because it just has to be. We were meant to be here. We were meant to leave our mark on this earth in one way or another. Just remember that when it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, or when you have taken a life detour, that it really is meant to happen. We were meant to do great things. Just keep going, because the best is yet to come.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
