I can’t believe we’re already into July, I still feel like it’s March to be completely honest with you. I’ve found writing down my day, and writing about my feelings is a chore, once again. I really need to work on this because blogging is something I really enjoy, but damn me, ya know? Remember how I wrote about it here: What to expect from In The Life Of Faith, 2018. on how I wanted to write more in this year? I’m laughing at myself now because I’ve only written 18 posts since then. I didn’t even do a one-year anniversary post! Blah regrets all around now. Oh well! Now I’ve said it, time to move on.
What’s been going on since the new year started:
If you’ve been reading up or backtracking my posts here are some of my favorite accomplishments I’ve done. One was getting my high school diploma. this is still something I’m very proud of. I’ve actually been debating on schools to go too!
I’ve decided I want to go to school for cultural studies- Asian cultural studies to be exact at my state university. For as long as I could remember I felt this burning passion to work in the mental health field but now? It’s not burning as much. Now that I’m in the medical field things are different and on my friend time, I find that I love spending it learning. I want to learn about the outside world, foreign cultures, and learn languages. I did make a post about learning Japanese, but I can’t seem to find it. (Maybe it’s a draft post, oops!)
I’ve taken more time to be myself and do the things I want to do. I still crochet, I still draw and paint, and currently back into Pokemon Go! I’ve been at it for the last two weeks now, and I’m excited to write about how much it’s helping me. I’ve spent more time in the kitchen as well, making the dishes I’ve always wanted to make. And I’ve been getting out more in general. I’ve been trying to make friends and be happy with myself sociably. It’s different when you’re behind a computer screen, people develop this idea about who and how you are in person. I want to be me, but also what people think they see me as. Oh, and I still love my Netflix and Chill days. 🙂
I’ve completed all of my physical classes for phlebotomy, and I’ve moved onto my externship. I’m into week two out of four and I’m not enjoying it at all. I don’t want to say too much, because I’ve just started here and it could get better, however, I don’t like it at all. This is not the place for me and that’s ok! I’m just so proud of myself, that I could realize it all.
I’ve been really into Pokemon Go, it’s been keeping me really active! I’ve been trying to get my 10k steps in a day, but because I can’t have any electronics on me (even a watch) it’s hard for me to keep track while at work.
Time for me has been scarce because I’m working 50 hour weeks right now, but I hope it all dies down once I’m done with my externship.
- I want to go back to school in the Spring of 2019 as I mentioned before.
- I want to lose 10lbs before the holidays.
- Love myself more.
I hope your summer is going great! Thanks for reading!
