IN THE MORNING: Healthy Eating

NOW DO NOT get me wrong I like a little junk food every now and then especially when I am stressed with school

BUT, that does not mean you can’t have some healthy eating in there too and I know for many of us

It must be hard to juggle having a semi-perfect life while also trying to be completely sane but it is possible and

I am just here to tell you about my struggles and failures and still (failing) but mostly winning in the healthy eating war

I’ve always loved fruit but hated vegetable and I was never one to pick the healthiest food as a child

so most time junk food was my life and I was completely fine with that

UNTIL I started to gain a bunch of weight and felt myself being tired all the time and to add to that I started to have stomach pain and issues

and I just decided okay I need to eat healthier

BUT what did that mean? to everyone eating healthier means different things because not everyone eats the same and in a (hypothetical) meter people have different types of healthy eating habits

To me however, it meant that I would make smarter decision I would eat the apple instead of the chocolate bar because it was healthier

I would eat or share the smaller chocolate bar because its less calories while also satisfying my eating habits

I would buy more vegetables and fruits instead of snacks when going grocery shopping

And thats fine everyone goes at their own pace and who cares what other people think of your healthy eating

As long as you are doing realistic healthy choices

For me I knew cutting out all junk food was not realistic because eventually I would give in and eat it

BUT just moving toward healthier eating is a step and a big one so be proud wherever your at in the healthy living cause its great and exciting and it can also suck

but most times its great and you won’t regret it!

Slow and Steady wins the race ADIOSS!

Fruits Are Lifeeee

IN THE AFTERNOON: Dealing with being sick while in college

Being sick sucks

And what sucks more is when your in college and sick because although professor give you days for being sick that might not always be the case for you

It might be a daily thing or a monthly thing that of course you can’t control

I am very happy that my stomach issues have gone away and I am no longer sick with the cold but a new sickness has arises

First let me say I swear I do not get sick this often its just been a crazy year and I have been dealing with headaches forever

Probably ever since high school, then it kind of went away and I barely got any headaches

Then I started to get this very painful headaches mid summer and starting school

I also started to notice patterns like when I would go from being hot outside to going into an AC room I would get a headache and sleeping in the dark lessen my headaches

I usually take pills for my headaches because its the only way they go away but you should always talk to your doctor before taking any pills

Anyways I just kept getting headaches everyday and it was a pain cause I would be in class and boom headache and ultimately this was just ridiculous

Then I started to google because who doesn’t and found that I might have migraines which I was like great because its obviously something thats not curable but I didn’t let that stop me from going to class

I always think about people that have worst sicknesses then me and how they still manage to get up and do what they have to so now I just know my triggers and try to avoid them as much as possible

I also bring my medication with me just in case my migraines hit while I am in class

Some tips for those that have suffer from headaches always bring medication and if your head really hurts and the class is big take a nap and put your head down. If you do not have that option and your class is small then excuse yourself if its to the point that you cannot handle it and email your professor explaining why you had to leave.

Professors do understand these situations, they are humans too.

So yeah I just come prepared and know my limits if I know theres no way I can make it to class email your professor 

Take your medication with you if possible and just be as positive as possible everyday

Thanks guys for being here! share your experiences in the comment section if you were ever sick in college and how you dealt with it. Have a fun day!

IN THE MORNING: College Supplies List

Now I know if your a freshman you might be thinking I need all this stuff and I have to buy x y and z

BUTTTTTTT I’m here to lessen your worries

I have a list for you that’ll blow your mind and I promise you this is all you will need for college (pinky swear)

Now some of these items might change depending on what you prefer but more likely then not this will be all you’ll need to survive your 4, 5, or 6 classes

I want to tell you guys and gals a back story about how I got to this list; I promise its short

So in my freshman year I forgot to staple a paper before class started and if you know professor you will know that they do not like the corner folded and will probably not even accept your paper

Knowing this I ran to every classroom and friend asking them for a stapler to which everyone told me they did not have one

Eventually I found one and saved myself of having to look at the professor with a staple-less paper but I realized and almost scarily realized I needed a stapler

I eventually realized over the years too that I did not need as much notebooks as I thought I did and I prefer instead typing on my laptop

SOO on to this list now like I said things might be interchangeable or not needed but thats up to you and how you like to go to school

I will also say this is just whats in my bag so this will include some beauty and other items that are in my bag.

College Supplies List:

  1. Backpack or Purse– personally I have a big purse from forever 21(not the exact one but similar) there are also these two (zara1,zara2) that look very similar to mine. I tend to carry a big bag because I have lots of stuff
  2. Pens, pencils, highlighter (one or two) and for a little splurge nice color pens
  3. A PLANNER I put these in capital letters because a planner has saved my life and they’re just BOMB. I got mine off of amazon  but this is there website also bloomdailyplanner.
  4. 5 Subject Notebook-I kid you not this will last you the whole year. I prefer using a computer most times but sometimes you just need a notebook or professors do not like laptops out.
  5. I also have a makeup bag where I put my pads and lipsticks pretty much everyday essentials. Here are a few that are super cute bag1 and bag2 .
  6. a STAPLERR– yass yeah its essential get it. You could save a college kids like I got mine from the dollar store and with a stapler you need staples too.
  7. Phone and computer charger– soo many times when I needed it and it wasn’t there
  8. Folders and Post its– I lived off of these one year and survived but the reality is you need folders and post its.
  9. small umbrella- Too many times has it rained and I have had zero umbrella. I got mine from target heres a few umbrella1(my umbrella it has bad reviews but I love it have had no problems with it),umbrella2 and umbrella3
  10. mints wipes and aleve– Mints can wake you up from a boring class, wipes for when you have to go number 2 in school(mine are from costco) OR you just need them and Aleve because you never know when your going to get a headache and if your a girl cramps

IN THE NIGHT:LAZY

FIVE ways you can relate if your lazy:

  1. You don’t get out of bed because it is to much effort 
  2. you over analyze how to get from place A to B and also analyze if your over analyzing and if it’s worth it 
  3. Sleeping is the holy grail and if you could get paid for it you would 
  4. Procrasination is a beautiful thing and almost your best friend 
  5. You question how you have friends because the effort to make a friend does not outweighs food or your bed or your favorite show on Netflix
