Reaching VIB Status!

I feel like it has been ages since I posted anything on here. Lately i’ve been finding that I either have no time to write a blog post or when I do have time there’s nothing worth writing about. Or there’s the third alternative which would be my laptop isn’t working. Just a friendly tip for all you iPhone/Mac users; don’t use non-apple usb cables to charge your phones. Even if they are cute and pink and happen to be a gift from a good friend. Stick to apple and save yourself the trouble of having to take your laptop in to get fixed because it burned out on you when you used a usb cable from a foreign country.

Laptop’s been fixed now, hence the reason you are able to see/read this post :)

One of my really good friends and I went out for lunch and a little shopping today.I thought I should take some pictures and post it on my blog. I’m hoping to get into the blogging mood again so I can post more consistently on here.

 I feel like this fortune cookie message was meant specifically for me. I question/hesitate on every little decision!

Broadening My Horizon

Lately, I’ve been finding that I’m spending a lot of time stressing out about not having enough time to prepare for my midterms or about finishing my assignments on time. Now that I have a job, I’m stressing about my work performance as well and whether my training is going at a good pace or if my manager thinks I am a slow learner. All these things in a addition to a little social drama and family drama on the side  have been really stressing me out lately. I stress and overthink about all of these issues that seem so significant to me. In the end though, these issues are really nothing compared to everything else that is going in the world right now. Especially with everything happening right now in Iraq with the ISIS group and Obama sending troops back even though one of his campaign promises was to withdraw all troops from Iraq. I have been making sure to stay up to date on everything that’s happening just because it is so interesting, and also because for the first time ever because of social media we are actually able to really know what’s going on, on the other side. In the past we had to rely on whatever propaganda images the media decided to release. But now we can actually go on the youtube and twitter pages of the actual members of the ISIS group and see what they have to say directly from the front lines and then from that we can form our own opinions based solely on the facts we’ve seen for ourselves. I think this definitely changes things, it’s pretty interesting.

Short Blog Post But Still a Blog Post

So the last time I posted a blog post was exactly 16 days ago! It’s been a while huh. I contemplated deleting this blog site altogether about a couple of weeks ago but then I decided against it. I think I am going to keep it  for as long as possible just so that in the future I can go on here and read about the “good ole days”.

Just wanted to say a quick hello, and you let you all know that I’ll definitely be posting new blog posts. Just gotta get back into the swing of things.

*Side note: as of today I have decided to give up listening to music. Today is day one of no music, lets see how long this lasts.
