It seems that I missed my May 2018 post. Whoops. My apologies. So much for my 2018 resolution. As you know, I was at the tail end of my Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, and two weeks ago I took my exit exam. Two years of prep work went into that 180-question exam and … Continue reading What to do with all this time?
"Some things just happen, and we don't get to know why." - Dr. April Kepner (Grey's Anatomy 14x17) The month is almost ending. I have not had the time to sit down and actually write out this month's blog. It's been a rough couple of months. And this is an understatement. I think the reason … Continue reading Things just happen…
A few weeks ago this was shared with me - a very powerful video on privilege (see below). This video definitely put into perspective the countless times I'd complain about things being unfair, life being unfair, or those times I'd be so upset with my parents over minute things. All so petty. As a child, … Continue reading Privilege.
A couple of months back, I signed up with the American Red Cross as a Blood Donor Ambassador. For the month of January, the blood drive I was helping out at was at OUE Skyspace Los Angeles, which is atop Downtown Los Angeles' US Bank Tower - the second tallest building in Los Angeles (although … Continue reading OUE Skyspace LA
As sure as you can count on the sun rising every morning, another year has come and gone and once again we're faced with another 365 days of fresh opportunities and possibilities. Although, nothing quite life-changing happened to me in 2017, I can say that through my journey I've learned more about myself. About myself? … Continue reading 2018 New Year, New Me?
This following post has been sitting in my dashboard for about two months, about a trip that took place a month ago. When life gets busy, boy, does it. 2017 has definitely flown by. I cannot believe that it's September already, and Los Angeles is definitely getting it's share of the Summer heat. Last month, … Continue reading Atlanta Vibes
The other week was the first of 2017's emotional rollercoaster weeks for me. A lot of ups and downs in one week, that by week's end I was in a funk that I tried (not all too successfully) to shake off and mask with a smile and laughter. I was once again reminded of how … Continue reading Lucky.
I can't believe we've already breezed through one-twelfth of 2017, and are well on our way to crushing through an already short February. This year, I'm trying to be more cognizant that this blog exists for the purposes of what I ultimately wanted it to be - something that I could look back on in … Continue reading Motivations and Revelations
Sometimes it's not always easy to make time to go catch up with friends, or even muster up enough energy to do so. All the reason I cherish the quality time I spend with friends. Last week, my friends and I attended our first Paint Nite at Pinocchio's in Pasadena. Essentially Paint Nite is a two-hour … Continue reading Paint Nite at Pinocchio’s
2016 came and went faster than any other year of my existence. In 2016, I started a new chapter of my life that has been filled with challenge after challenge after challenge. But in more ways than one, it has been incredibly rewarding. What may come easy to others has required much more from me. … Continue reading Where did 2016 go?
