Three Things I Realized in 2016


It's a new year and its a great time to look back on the things that happened in 2016 that made me realize some sh*t! 
I feel like every year there are situations or people that will make you understand and realize why things are the way they are.

1
Don't let yourself down too much...
This is a hard lesson that I never quite understood, people always say, "don't be too hard on yourself... It's not good" and I never really understood why they said that, I guess for me it's a way to not put my hopes up and just expect the worst. A great example of this is  when I decided to change colleges and transfer to a big university *my dream university actually* and for the 5 months that I waited for the letter to come to the mail, I always told people that I was sure I wouldn't get in because I don't have what it takes to get in. Little did I know that after 5 months of waiting, I would be opening an acceptance letter. That was when I realized that I could do it, I was able to get in to my dream school and I wasn't so much of a "loser" to not be able to get in. I guess what I'm trying to say here is, don't put yourself down just because you're unsure of what the outcome will be...

2
Sometimes people drift away...
This is quite sad, in 2016 one of my best friends drifted apart from me. It was truly hard breaking because she and I were super close, we literally made each other cry laughing by just looking at one another.  Sometimes you have no control on what people want and what they think will be best for them, and all you can do is hope that that they get to where they want to go.

3
It's good to try new things...
I was always the type of person to not want to try new things because I'm scared of what I would look or what it would do to me. I mean I still kind of am but there has been little things that I have absolutely tried in 2016. For example, I died my hair a dirty blonde!!! BLONDE!!! I've had black hair since I was born and I was always so afraid to try a different color because I was sooo scared that i'd look ugly, then I realized eehh so what I can always dye it back. I know that is like 0 in the adventurous scale  but for me its a 8.5!

What about you guys what have you guys realized in 2016?

Holiday

If you know me personally, you'd know that Christmas time is my favorite time of the year... Yes, Christmas has passed but it's still the holidays. Well, one of the things I love about Christmas is the fact that it brings family together. There's nothing I love more than spending time with my family, especially my cousins who I grew up with, we were practically like siblings growing up because we were all so close to age. Since we're all in our early 20s and mid 20s, we don't get to spend time with each other as often as before due to school, work, and or the fact that we live miles and miles apart now... 

Every time all of us are in the same city or state we make sure that we have our bonding time.
Of course it isn't always the best, we have times where we don't wanna be in the same room as them. But it's great

What I Eat In a Day


It's been awhile since I had a really well thought of post and so I decided to show you guys a little glimpse in my everyday life by what I normally eat. I've absolutely been loving "What I Eat In a Day" videos on YouTube and so I decided why not do a post of me going along with the new trend.
I actually tend to cook my own food most of the time because I don't eat pork and a lot of the times my family will cook something with pork in it, so I usually stay away. But when the food is free of pork, i'll usually eat whatever it is. 

Breakfast

I always wake up earlier than I have to (6:30 am) because I'm a morning person, and this works well for me because I have time to make breakfast and lounge around for a bit, also I can take my sweet time before I have to head out for school.
For breakfast I made pancakes topped with homemade strawberry&blueberry syrup and banana, quick note I made the berry syrup myself :) This wass soooo good, and I made the pancakes super thin *yyyuuuum*


 Lunch

Usually I will still be in school during lunch time but today I only had one class and so I had time to go home and make my own lunch. For lunch I made a Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad. I was pretty happy with how this turned out, it was very easy to make. The only thing you had to cook was the chicken.

Ingredients
Chicken Breast
Chopped tomatoes
Cheddar Cheese
Tortilla Chips (I used doritos because I didn't have any tortilla)
Black beans
Sour Cream
Corn
Taco Mix (I made it myself because I was too lazy to go to the store)
Avocado

Sooo sorry I forgot to take a picture of it when everything was mixed together, maybe next time.


Dinner

Since my breakfast and lunch was pretty big, I wasn't really hungry by dinner time. I just went for a slice of wheat bread and the egg sandwich spread that my mom made the nigh before. I love egg sandwich, I can honestly eat like 3 slices of these. 


Snack

I'll usually have a snack when I'm still a little hungry and or when I'm waiting for the food to cook and on this day I made beans. Its soo good and healthy.

Stressed and Failing


Helllooo lovely people, it has been a loong time since I have done a blogpost and I'm blaming school for it. I have been super busy with trying to put my grades up and sadly I don't think I am succeeding... I really don't have to make this post but I just wanted to let my readers know where I've been..
This is actually my last week for lectures and next week is all for final exams... So this week is pretty much hell week with studying, writing essays, and sooo much stressing.

This semester has definitely been the craziest semester in the 2 and a half year I've been in college, I have cried sooo much during this semester, like you guys have no idea how I've been wanting this semester to end. It has become sooo bad that I have no ounce of Christmas spirit in me.... I am currently taking 4 classes and 2 of which I am failing, I'm not very happy about that because I do not want to graduate any later than I already have to... I am trying my hardest to pass all 4 of my class but I don't know what else to do...
:( 

I didn't want to bore you guys with my current situation because I know there's more serious things out there but for right now, where I am in life, It's the most important and serious thing...

Anyways, I can't wait till this semester is over so I can finally feel Christmasy!!!

A good day in

I am a homebody type person, a hermit, a turtle!! I like to be inside rather than go out and party. I find chilling at home to be the best thing in the world, some people hate being inside the whole day and feel the need to be outside and do something//that is not a bad thing at all! People are different and that's awesome! But for me, a perfect day consists of staying in bed, tucked in my favorite duvet cover, and having nothing in my head to ruin the day.
Since I haven't had one of those is a really long time due to my crazy work and school schedule, it would be nice to write about it and somehow relive it hahaha. Sooo sit back, relax, and continue reading about what a perfect day in consists of for me.

ENJOY!

Pillows and Duvet
I have a twin bed and it is very easy to feel "cozy" on my bed because it can get warm after you pack on the duvet cover and pillows. You can't expect to have perfect day in without a comfy bed *though sometimes people chill on their couch* 

Closed blinds
When I stay inside the whole day I DO NOT like for the sunlight to get in my room whatsoever, i'd like that to stay out, please! I just find a dimmed room to feel warmer and cozy

Food
Pack on the snacks if you may, chips, ice cream, soda, cookie, chocolates! I don't like to leave my room when I'm having a cozy day in at home, so therefore I like to keep a stash of food next to my bed so I can just reach out for it. 

Netflix and ViKi
I can be on Netflix all day watching romcoms (the cheesier the better) and terribly acted horror movies. If nothing on Netflix tickles my fancy, I go on over to Viki and watch the latest Korean Dramas I have missed out on (Gong Yoo? Lee Min Ho? Ju In Sung?) Nothing better than binge watching 16 episode dramas the whole day!

Whats your ideal good day in?
