Keep Going!

So here I am in case anyone was wondering. I'm sure you were all just waiting for my next amazing post! (not!) But, seriously, I really haven't been around the blog world lately. I'm sorry I haven't really commented or even read all that much. It's just that things have been so busy and I've been feeling rather uninspired lately anyway. Do you want to see my schedule? Of course you do! lol

Mon - school from 1:30-9
Tues - work either 10-2 or 2-6
Wed - school from 9:30-12:30, teach skating from 5:30-6:40
Thurs - school from 9-9(!!)
Fri - work from 10-2, school from 6-9
Sat - teach skating 9:20-10:40, work from 11-3
Sun - work from 7-11

In addition to studying for my normal classes, I'm studying for the comprehensive exams in December. And I'm taking driving lessons. It's kinda redic! But, I'll get through it, hopefully!! ;)

I've been doing ok on the eating and gaining front. Peanut butter helps, hehe.  I've actually been doing more weight training which is a good motivator to eat more and gain muscles. At least, I've found that if I tell myself I need to fuel my muscles I eat want to eat more and feel better overall.

My emotions have been absolutely crazy the past few weeks, though. I don't know whether its my hormones kicking in or adjusting to my school schedule or what, but I seriously cry every other day at the drop of a hat. It's not horrible or anything, but I'm wondering if I should get that figured out...

Anyway, I'm not trying to bog you guys down with complaints or negativity. My life is actually pretty amazing. Sure, it's overwhelming at times, but I'm so grateful for the chance to grow and learn and LIVE! Everyone has their cross to bear, and reading your blogs inspires me to keep going and truly enjoy what's around me. I want to sincerely thank you all for that!

I'm not sure if I'll be back for WIAW, but just know that I'm thinking of all of you!


  1. good to hear from you!! YA y for the weight training!

  2. I find that weight training gives me the motivation and desire to eat more too! I think it's a pretty helpful tool and we should both continue to utilize it.

    And don't feel bad about wanting to cry a lot. I remember when I first started college I felt like that almost every other day for a number of reasons. We're human, though, and it's ok to feel those emotions. If you're really worried, find out if there are counselors you can talk to and see if that helps. I know that when I had someone to discuss my worries with they helped clear up a lot of confusion and it brought me a lot of confidence.

    Take care and keep up the great work!

  3. I fully relate to the crazy schedule. This year seems to be bananas for lots of people!

    Keep taking care of yourself and treating your body and soul kindly! You're doing a great job.

  4. This is your space, so vent all you need <3

    And proud of you for still fighting with all the stress <3

  5. So proud of you, girly! I can relate to your crazy schedule- but my goodness, school 9-9... That is INTENSE! So cool that you teach figure skating, by the way- I used to do that as well! :-)

    I'm sorry about the crazy emotions- could definitely be hormones kicking in! Hang in there and remember that it's normal and ok to be more emotional/teary at times- it will pass I'm sure. <3

  6. wow busy busy!

    I am really emotional and cry a lot too!! esp during the beginning of the school year when I am getting used to the new schedule, and freaking out that I wont be able to balance it all!
    One step at a time right?!

    Best of luck with the work load! you can do it!

  7. I apologize for not visiting my favorite blogs lately, and i promise to do some catching-up with everyone in the next few days. We are experiencing cooler weather starting today (Thursday) and as for myself I'm looking forward to falls return to the Lancaster Pennsylvania area. And are the color of the leaves changing your your way folks as they are mine. Hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful fall season that has now begun. Richard from Amish Stories

  8. i feel the same way when it comes to having things that weigh you down but knowing still that life can be amazing, and is amazing given the fact that we are alive and here to experience it. i hope you have a wonderful weekend and things not only go your way, they surpass all expectations <3


  9. good luck with everything!! happy holidays too! :D
