Back in the Game

Good morning lovlies! I’m so sorry I’ve been off the radar forever! I cannot believe how incredibly swamped I’ve been with school, work, running, and the many events of senior year.

In fact, I’ve been so swamped with my life that, in order to keep a balance in my life, I had to quit my job. *Sad face*

No, I’m not a quitter, for all y’all meanies out there.

When it comes to life, my philosophy is that priorities should always be:

  1. You
  2. Your family
  3. Your relationships with others
  4. Your responsibilities (whether that be school, work, etc.)

For me, if one begins to disrupt a part of my life that’s higher up on the list, it’s time to do some prioritizing.

So I did.

Sorry, job, my grades and my sanity are a bit more important than you 😉

In honor of my prioritizing, I also took some time to re-organize my desk space, newly dubbed “The Office”.



Ahhh! Messy mess = messy head. If my workspace is cluttered, so is my noggin.

And with a wave of my magic wand…

Unfortunately, I also came down with a terrible stomach illness Monday night that’s been going around my school – gladly, no puking over here!

The thought not only terrifies me, but also is just nasty. I avoid it at every and all costs.

I hated missing school (hello, make-up work!), but I needed the rest.

I was sure to eat nutritious food, drink some ginger tea, and watch some juicy talk shows – including The Doctors.

Have you ever seen this show? I was surprised that I kind of liked it!

I was expecting some hokey, mainstream show but they actually gave some really great advice, like writing down 5 things that make you truly happy (smile!) and thinking about them every day.

Here’s my 5:

  • Spending time with people I love
  • Cooking something beautiful
  • Making others smile
  • Learning about things that interest me
  • The “wow” feeling I sometimes get when I realize how much I’m capable of

What’s your 5?

That’s all until lunch, lovies! I’m gonna have to get y’all caught up with my life in a series of posts, as it appears – I have so much to say! Including the aforementioned recipes.

It’s time for my morning run, so see you later! Enjoy the rest of your morning 🙂
