The simple things in life

Slowly moving things into Mike’s place, why? bc I have no where else to live haha. Aiming to finish this thesis thing in a few weeks, still applying to jobs but nothing yet, I have another interview on Monday.

This has been such a stressful time, as it gets closer I become more isolated from anyone. I honestly don’t feel like hanging out with people bc I rather just be alone at times. Any free time I have I use it to be a bit lazy because that is the only time when my mind is free from all the stress I have.

Of course, I want to make plans with friends and I do but not as much. I think I will get back on my regular grind once this is all over. My living situation next month should be temporary until I finish my thesis and find a job. Luckily Mike and his mom are understanding and they are lending out there hand by letting me live with them. We shall see how that goes but technically I live there a couple times a week.

Full of excitement

Gahhh can’t wait for tomorrow and to be in NY already. I have so much jammed packed fun  in stored for this week. I finally get to cross a couple things of my list such as see an Oprah, that should be fun. I have waited so long to see Interpol and I finally get to see my lovelies ;)

Oooey Goooey Rant

Finally getting close to the end, ahh. Still hustling to get a good job, right now one of the jobs that seems attainable is in Houston, aya yai. These last 2 quarters have been much different then the rest.

1. I’ve grown closer to my best friend, probably bc we see each other almost everyday now. It’s great seeing her so often even if most of the time it’s at the gym, I get to be her lil trainer haha. 

2. I’ve met someone that treats me the way I deserve. It was hard at first getting use to such a different person. Someone who is respectful, polite, super nice, and that makes you feel special all the time. Of course, we did have some ups n downs mainly bc I am not the best communicator. I’ve learned to communicate better bc of this. I try not to hold things anymore or get mad over dumb things like spilled milk, literally haha. 

3. I’ve also started trying to get along better with my family. I think seeing how great Mike gets a long with his mom really helped. I feel comfortable talking to his mom about my life which has helped me open up more with my own family and not get mad at them over dumb things.

I am a lil unsure of what the future has for me, right now the only struggle is this thesis but each week I feel like I am getting somewhere even when I procrastinate which I do often.

Little rant

Things seem to be looking a little brighter. I got an email today that I think will really help my research. I just have to motivate myself to do it haha. It’s so hard, such a struggle. Not knowing where I’ll be this summer is also a bit troubleling, I really do hope I find a good job in something that interests me. I have a promising interview tomorrow and tonight I will practice for it. I hope things fall into place soon bc the wait really sucks. I will stay optimistic though.

Corporate Struggle

Gahhh I hope it goes well today, my first phone interview, eek! 

I really want this job, great location, great company, interesting position, its pretty perfect.

I studied a bit last night on the company and position, gotta write some points now on things they may ask.

Taking it one step at a time, I was very excited all day yesterday when I found out. I was beginning to feel that nobody wanted me.

Back to doing more research on it and I’ll be relived when it’s over later today, the waiting though, that will kill me haha.

Jeeze Louise

Applying to jobs suck!!!! Sucks so bad haha. I hate having to add my work experience to each application. Currently, I am just applying to the ones that only require a resume and cover letter. That’s a bit easier. The other ones require more work, I have done some of them but still.

I don’t even have like a goal job anymore, I am just applying to certain things that interest me and just taking it from there.

Largh….

Time is coming close to finishing my project. This week I gotta work on my thesis even though I just wanna have a break and do fun things haha. I am going paintballing all day on Saturday, I am scared since I hear it’s painful but I am sure it will be fun.

I am sticking to my new way of life motto, if I don’t feel like it, I won’t. So far so good. Last weekend, Mike met the family and that went really well.

I am still sticking to my lifting 12 week program. I am halfway through week 9, I’ve only skipped one day which was last week when I was running on 2 hrs of sleep and was in immense pain due to my dental work.

I have new short-term goals, one is to work on my resume this week and become more serious on my job hunting. Another is to get to the 50 mark on my thesis this week. I am getting closer to it.

I also have a couple events this week and I am iffy on one of them. I am currently not feeling it, I’ll see how I feel as the week gets closer. I do get to see my best friend and a few closer ones this weekend, hopefully I am not too burned out after paintball to hang with them.

Week 6 Bodybulding review

These last few days have been tough. I wanted to quit yesterday but after a pep talk from Mike things got better. He had a few bad days too and so we are gonna try harder to stick to it. 

I have decided to switch things up a bit, my main problem area is the cardio. I hate cardio haha. I use to be really good at keeping up with my running when I was training and doing insanity videos when I was doing that but now I have a hard time sticking to just 1 mile or finishing a video.

So I am gonna give it 100% from now on. If I want something I will have it just make room for it in other areas.

Hopefully in a week I’ll still be on track.

Week 5 overview

Last week was tough, I tried my best to stick to my plan. I haven’t skipped a day yet, so that’s good. I switched up my plan a bit and yesterday I succesfully followed it through. Today is the start of week 6. Only 6 more weeks to go!
