loosing yourself -- finding yourself

sometimes we find ourselves slowly drifting away from what we are. this could be because of a person, an activity, or just where you are in life.  recently, i've been feeling like i'm drifting. i don't know if it's because i haven't had a moment to breathe, or because i now have someone else in my life now. or maybe its because this is my second year in this city and everything isn't brand new and exciting to me anymore.  i don't know what it is, but i feel like i am drifting and that i am a little lost. not completely, but i can see it coming in the future and that scares me.  this is my way of keep myself true to me and who i am.  i am the girl who loves to write. who needs to write just to keep her thoughts straight sometimes.  i am the girl who has random urges to paint and get messy because i have some sort of feeling inside of me that can't be described with words.  i am the girl who needs some sort of artistic expression to survive in

Currently's are one of my favorite things to write because it gives a snapshot of what is going on in my life in the here and now. Plus, when I look back on them, it gives me a sense of how far I've come and how I've changed!  listening : beautiful now - zedd. Currently really loving this album.  eating: just downed a bowl of chicken noodle soup and Emergen-C because I am starting to come down with something :( drinking: water, water, water because hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. wearing: the most not-matching comfy outfit I could find.  feeling: The only way I can describe how I'm feeling right now is through question marks. So, ???? weather: hot, warm, humid, florida-like.  wanting: to feel better so I can get things done! needing: to write a paper for my online political science class... thinking: that I have a lot to do! But I thrive off being busy if I'm being honest.  enjoying: new, amazing music. I haven't really been searching fo

Monthly Goals - March

Image
A new month is here! I know I didn't update last month on my goals, but the truth is that I really didn't have any goals that I was focused on. I mainly just wanted to get through the month without adding anything else onto my plate!  So, with that said, here are my goals for the month of March! Stay organized: I've been pretty good at staying organized this semester and want to keep this going! Focus on me:  I tend to focus more on fixing other people and not myself. This is more of a long term goal for better myself and not just limited to this month. Putting yourself first is so important and is something that I really need to focus on. Decide where I am moving?!: This year I lived in the dorms because it was required and frankly just more convenient for my freshman self but Sophomore year is upon us and it is no longer required to live in the dorms. I'm thinking about becoming an RA but the thought of living off campus is highly appealing as well. I gue

The last time I did a "currently" post was three days I moved to college. And here I am now, in my second semester of college. It's crazy how fast time moves.  listening: "Kanye" by The Chainsmokers. This is actually my first time listening to this song and I don't know how to feel about it.  eating: nothing. Too stuffed from the "delicious" dining hall food. drinking: water, water, coffee.... wearing: warm clothes because even inside this library it's cold. feeling: tired. It's been a crazy few days. weather: Cold, windy, and not fun. wanting: to have some fun. The endless homework has begun.  needing: to sleep.  thinking: that thank goodness every day is a new one and I can make it better than the one before. enjoying: getting things done. It's nice to feel productive.  reading: about Cleopatra. I have to write as her so might as well get to know as much about her as possible.  writing: this post but also want to be wr

2015 Goals

So, I am very late to the party when it comes to posting my goals for 2015. Better late than never!  Blog more . Last year I kind of fell off the blogosphere when I started school and I am going to try my hardest to not let that happen this semester. I've put too much hard work into this thing to just let it go.    Make more videos.  Video production is something I really love and want to continue doing for a long time. Right now, my only way to practicing my editing skills is through my YouTube Channel  and it's definitely something I am going to keep up with this year. Join a club at school. Even though my schedule is super packed, joining a club at school is very important to me and is something I need to do for myself. All throughout high school I was in clubs and they meant a lot to me. So, this is part of my old self that I want to bring into the new year. Do charity work. This may seem a little basic but charity work is something I strive to include in the rest

Liebster Award - I Was Nominated!

Image
Because I am such a ditz, it took me over a month to realize that I had been nominated for a Liebster Award!  The award is given to a blogger with less than 200 followers and nominations are received from other bloggers. In order to accept the award, the nominator has provided us with 11 questions to answer about ourselves and our blog.  1.How did you decide on the title of your blog? There's a song by Emeli Sande called "Heaven" that I first heard while watching a runway show and I fell in love with it. She frequently says "oh, heaven" in the song and I thought it was the perfect fit for me and my blog. 2.What is one word that sums up the heart of your blog and why? Since my blog is constantly evolving, I would have to go with curious and trying. I'm always wondering about new things and wanting to try them out! So, curious is definitely the perfect word!
