I don't know how I would survive life without music. I could listen to it when I'm happy, sad, mad. You don't have to be in a specific mood to be able to enjoy music and that's what I love about it. I am able to express my thoughts using a song if I can't find the right words to say. When I feel stressed or feel like I want to get away from reality, I'll just play my favorite songs and everything suddenly feels better and my mood changes too. Sometimes when I study I listen to music and it makes studying so much more tolerable. I just love music and I don't know what this world would be without it.

I know I talk a lot about the weather. But lately the weather has been beautiful. Sure we've had days when we couldn't stand the heat and then theres been days where we had to wear a sweater because it was too cold out. But I am so happy there is no more snow until the winter. Any weather is more beautiful than snow.
I have so much to do before I could say I finished my first year of college. I studied for almost 12 hours for my anatomy practical and quiz tomorrow and I am currently studying for my chem quiz tomorrow. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing in chemistry and I am trying to teach myself but it is just so hard and I am feeling so overwhelmed. But if I made it this far in the semester, I could make it one more week!

It is crazy to even think that my first year of college is almost over. There is 8 days of class left and I am sure they are going to fly by. I have been trying to keep my grades up but it has been so hard because everything is just piling up and I don't have enough time to sit down and actually study and understand the material that will be on the exam. On Monday I took an exam in anatomy and I am pretty sure I failed it, all because I had to study for my chem quiz. I just honestly cannot wit until I am packing up my car to go back home and not have to come back until the start of the next semester!

Lately I haven't been getting the sleep I need to function normally. I wake up for class in the mornings and feel like a zombie when I'm walking to class. I stay up late for no reason. Except for tonight, I was finishing a lab report. I think I should start going to bed earlier and treating my body the way I should've been treating it a long time ago.

Since summer is coming up, I decided to lean up for the summer. This journey has been very difficult for me considering I had never had to watch my calories intake. I have been putting hours of work at the gym everyday to eventually get to where I want to be by the start of the summer. I started doing cardio, something I've always hated and never enjoyed. Now I don't mind going to the gym and actually putting in the effort to actually achieve the body I want.

I love everything about dentistry. I love how there are so many different kinds of toothbrushes and so many kinds of toothpastes ans mouthwash. It's almost like there is something for everyone. I love when people have a beautiful smile, it's able to brighten up my day. Which is why I want to be a dentist when I graduate college. I have been decided on this major since I was 12 and nothing or no one could ever change my mind about it. I know that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life and I will do whatever it takes to do just that. I will put all the effort I could possibly offer into everything I do. I will make sure I pass all my classes with good grades so that I am admitted into the dental hygiene program and keep my grades up so that I could stay in the program and finally be able to work in the field I've always wanted to work in. I also have a summer job at a dental office to start learning what this field is like and start learning names of equipment and names of teeth and all that fun stuff. This won't be just any other job to me. It'll be a job that I look forward to every morning. A job that pushes me out of bed so that I could be there on time. It'll be the first of many jobs at a dental office and I couldn't be any more excited. I love everything about dentistry and I will do whatever I can to work in the field of something I love.

Going to the gym allows me to take all my anger out and relieve all my stress for a little while. For 2 hours, I worry about nothing but the gym and the workout I am doing for the day. I feel like going to the gym has allowed me to be able to manage my time more efficiently. While at the same time, I am seeing results and staying in shape and staying healthy. I always feel so weird if I don't know go the gym. It has become a way of life and I just feel like there's a part of me missing when I miss the gym. But sometimes there isn't enough time in the day to get everything done.
Naps are the best thing ever. Feeling sad? Take a nap. Feeling sleepy? Take a nap? Need a break from the world and everyone living in it? Take a nap. In college, there is so much running around and so many sleepless nights that it's hard to not take a nap everywhere you go. If I don't take a nap, I feel like I can't get anything done because I am too busy thinking about how tired I am and how I should take a nap. I honestly don't know how I would survive college without naps.
Keeping up with a blog is so hard. I feel like I am starting to run out of things to say! Which I know sounds impossible because we are always having a conversation with ourselves and sometimes its best to write some things down to clear our head. But with so much homework and so much happening all at once, there just isn't enough time to write/say so much.
Every time I'm in the car or in the shower, I have to be singing. I'll admit I'm not the best singer but I still do it. I like being able to express myself through a sing if I don't know how to put my feelings into words. Music is just so beautiful and everyone could enjoy it. There are so many different types of music, which is what makes it beautiful. So, next time you see someone jamming out in their car, let them be. They're expressing themselves and they're at their happiest when they're singing and dancing.

When I first applied to Lewis, I also applied to the Dental Hygiene program but I was not accepted due to my ACT score. I made sure to take all the classes I needed to be considered for the program when I was able to apply. I will be able to apply December of this year, after completing the classes I will be taking next semester which are necessary for the program. I am so excited for next semester because my hard work will finally pay off and I will finally be taking classes for what I actually want to do for the rest of my life!

I like to plan out my week and know what I am going to do each day to stay on track and turn everything in on time. I also want to make sure I do my best on everything I do. This week when I was planning out my week, I noticed that I have so many exams this week alone. 3 days in a row! Everything is piling up and it is making it really hard to do well on everything and focus on just one thing. I guess this is what college is like and I guess that I will eventually learn how to manage my time.
