Week 2: Getting buff and stuff

Hello all!
I apologize for the late post. I got inspired at the wrong time. This week, I am going to write about my first experience at a gym.
I wasn't very athletic growing up. It's not that I didn't want to be. Anyone who knows me well knows I am very competitive. The problem I had with sports in high school was all the drama and cliques that seemed to circle each team. Not to mention, I loved eating whatever I wanted and not getting up early to lift weights. 
Now that I am older, I want to work out more. I'm not big in any way. I just want to stay active so I don't have to worry about waking up one day, suddenly realizing that i'm overweight, and not having the stamina to do anything about it. I also wish I was a little stronger. I love rock climbing, but I always run into problems when I need arm strength. I've also never been able to do a pull up, so I want to be able to do that.
The gym my boyfriend and I go to is great. They had us meet with an employee …

Week 1: Settling in and relaxing

Hello everyone!

For my first week of the summer, I decided to do something that's a little simple, but necessary. I also don't have a paycheck yet, so I needed to do something that didn't require money. I decided to take the week to relax and settle in to my apartment.

The week started off with job hunting. I believe in taking time for yourself, but I also believe in working hard for what you want. I applied to places that revolve around my major, which involves instructing others during art-related activities. I am hopeful that I will be hired, but I am waiting for my background check to go through.

So, while I waited, I worked on settling into my boyfriend's apartment. It has taken a lot of transition, considering he doesn't have a lot of stuff and I have all the stuff. I went through all of my papers and threw out a stack that went up to my knee. I still had stuff from freshman year of college! It felt really good to go through everything. We still have some adj…

Why do 15 things for me?

Hello Everyone!

As some of you may know by now, I am doing 15 things for myself this summer. One thing each week.

Why am I being so selfish?

Well, for starters, anyone who knows me well knows I will put others before myself constantly. I was bullied throughout elementary school. It was a small school, and I was an easy target. The worst part is, there is no recovering from that mentality of not being worth other people's time. When my family moved, I did everything I could to start fresh and make friends I had never had before. I met two amazing girls who welcomed me into their circle. We all got along really well, until they had a huge fight. Then I juggled my attention between the two, until I couldn't anymore.

It didn't matter, because I found a man I loved at school in 10th grade. He was a great guy, who loved me, despite what I thought of myself for years. We had an amazing time together. He was my best friend. However, it didn't work out, and we went our separate…
