Stressed Is An Understatement

For any of you that have followed me for awhile know that I’m a college student. I’m currently a week away from finals and then I’m FREE. I’ve never been so excited for summer in my life you guys!

I think because my classes are a bit harder this semester (Genetics and Organic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry Lab) I’ve just been stressing so much over doing well in these courses.

I’ve gone to so many office hours in the last week or two that my professors and I have become best friends. It’s ridiculous lol. Each night I’ve put in about 5-7 hours of just studying Organic Chemistry (I have a test tomorrow). I have yet to even begin studying for my Genetics final which is going to be so hard just thinking about it is making my head hurt.

The only reason I’m making this post is because, well, it seemed like an efficient way to procrastinate right now. I’m trying not to start another book because I’ll just be reading for hours on end instead of studying ):

Also, I’m making this post to let you guys know that once I start my summer break you’ll be seeing more posts from me! They will hopefully be more frequent which I’m excited about. It’s just too much to try and keep up with regular posts while also doing school. I know some that do it and excel at it but I’m just horrible at prioritizing and multitasking.

Thought I’d give you guys a little update on my hectic life. I have to go back to studying now so wish me luck! I’m so close to finishing this semester I can taste it!!

6 Books I’ve Been Meaning To Read But Have No Time To Do So

I have to admit, I’m kind of disappointed in myself. I really wanted to blog multiple times a week, whether I’m blogging about a book I’m reading or something totally not book related. It was definitely easier to blog and read frequently when I wasn’t in school and did nothing with my day. I’m currently back in school now, this is my third week, and I think I’ve barely finished 2 books in the duration. TWO BOOKS! It’s not like I don’t have a lot of free time because I feel like I do, I just don’t know. When I’m in school it’s like my adoration for books slightly diminishes and my love for Netflix increases tenfold. To top it all off, I’m really not going to have time to blog since I’ll be starting a new job! I applied to nanny this 5 year old 3 hours a day 5 times a week. While it’s not a lot of time each time I’m starting to worry now that I won’t be able to handle schoolwork and a job. I know a lot of students do it but it is definitely worrisome. Anyways, back to the point of this post! While I’m continuously busy, my TBR shelf has been filling up. Here are some on the top of my shelf. (Not in any order and summaries are from Goodreads) Continue reading

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing day today. My family and I decided to switch things up a bit this Christmas. Instead of staying home like usual, we went to Universal Studios. We didn’t think it would be that busy since it was Christmas and people usually spend that at home with family. BOY WERE WE WRONG! This place was packed and our hotel was fully booked from Saturday until tomorrow. Continue reading

NYC Trip 2016!

My university has this thing called Fall Break. It’s just a random break we have in October and this year I travelled to New York City with my friend!
I’ve been once before a couple of years ago but didn’t do much sight seeing and was only there for a day and a half, I believe. This time, however, I wanted to see EVERYTHING!
I thought I’d post some pictures so that you guys could see and also in a way meet me because I think I have only posted a couple pictures of me before. Let me tell you I GOT SUCH A WORKOUT WHILE I WAS THERE. I have never walked so much in my entire life! I walked a little over 20 miles in just 2 days. Like ??? And I was told by so many New Yorkers that walking that much in a day is normal for them !? My calves were swollen hahaha. It was all worth it though. That city is beautiful, especially Central Park! I definitely recommend you go at least once in your lifetime and experience this city and all it has to offer. Click to see some more pics!

Little Italy!


Central Park!


Brooklyn Bridge! Was definitely worth the long walk and almost getting run down by bikers.

A sketchy bathroom in Central Park lol

I will forever be thankful for the girl in the background making this picture forever hilarious.

What’s Happening In My Life!!

Helllloooooooo! I just wanted to give an update on my life and how everything is going! I’ve been kind of absent from my blog lately, which I really hate by the way, so I wanted to talk about what’s been going on lately.

I’m almost over with my first year of college! Thank God! It seems like this school year has lasted 50 years so I really hope these next 5 weeks fly by and summer comes quickly. College has definitely been interesting! (I might make a post all about Freshman Year of College) I currently go to school in Arizona which is so different from where I grew up. I’m a California girl through and through so going to Arizona was probably not the best choice for me but I am thinking about transferring to a school in California so I’m so excited, it’s something for me to look forward to!

I changed my major this year as well and I couldn’t be happier! I went from a business major to pre-med. Yeah, it’s a big jump but I’ve always been interested in medicine but wasn’t confident enough that I could get into Med school. But when I really thought about it I would be happier trying instead of always having that “what if” in the back of my head.

My goal is to become a sports medicine physician for either the NHL or NFL. So fingers crossed!

I’m moving into my first apartment this August! I’m excited but not so excited about having 3 random roommates. It’ll definitely be interesting! I can’t think about any other things to mention so I’ll just post some pictures of the last couple of months! (:  (I dont have much because I had to recover my phone which deleted all my pictures D: )

 

2016, HERE I COME!



I decided to write out what I really want to come and accomplish in this new year! I’m so excited for a brand new year because I sure as hell needed 2015 to end!

This time last year I was a senior in high school and still living at home with my family. Now I will be starting this year off in a Arizona with zero friends. The last couple of months I’ve been living in Arizona but I feel like it’s kind of different starting off a whole new year in AZ. 

First New Year’s Goal:

During my first semester I never really read. Which is so depressing! Reading has always been my escape and my coping mechanism really, so not reading really did affect me and my emotional state because I couldn’t really cope with being in a new place with no friends. I was just so busy and stressed and I really need to make time this coming semester to read because it will make my time there better honestly.

So that’s my first goal for the new year, that no matter how busy I get with my classes I WILL make time for my lovely books!

Second New Year’s Goal:
My second New Year’s goal is to get better grades. Last semester I got 4 A’s and 2 B’s but because most of my A’s were A- so my overall GPA wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be. So I’m hoping to get higher A’s and higher B’s so that I can a higher GPA.

Third New Year’s Goal:
My third goal is to be happier. I haven’t been happy in Arizona so I really hope this next semester I can make the most of my time there and meet amazing people! And well, if that doesn’t pan out then I hope to make friends on here or twitter or some other vice lol!

I HOPE EVERYONE ACCOMPLISHES EVERYTHING THEY WANT IN 2016 AND HAS THE BEST YEAR!
