#30WriteNow Challenge Day 31

It's finally over! I'm disappointed that I didn't finish but I did a pretty damn good job! I have to find a way to balance out blogging and school. Time management is everything!

Next challenge please.....Simply Jade

Oh College....

School is back in session now and I am already exhausted. I really think I spoiled myself this summer by moving at my own pace with everything. My classes are OK but not interesting at all. The professors seem like they care about their students' grades which is one thing I was concerned about. Yes, I am having doubts about what I am getting myself into because I don't know wear I stand academically . At the end of the day I just want to work out, work, write, read and repeat.

#30WriteNow Challenge Day 22

Day 22 - How have you changed in the past 2 years?

Well let's talk about what's going on now....

Mentally: I've improved a lot. I'm not as scared of life as I used to be ( yes, I did say LIFE). I try to put "what ifs" questions behind and move forward.

Physically: I missed my old body but I am a lot stronger than before. I am lifting weights like crazy to get toned and lose more weight if possible.

Emotionally - I love/hate when I am ready to. I am very moody but when I feel a certain way, I will show it immediately. There is no holding back.

Let's put the past behind us - Simply Jade

#30WriteNow Challenge Day 20

Day 20 - "How important you think education is"

I am all for education to a certain extent. As you look at it now, many young individuals can't afford college and convince themselves that it is not that important. Well, I believe that degrees (BA, BS, MS etc.) helps people get their foot in the door but not the golden key to success. Your talents, experiences and skills is your ticket out this MotherF%cker.

#30WriteNow Challenge Day 10

Day 10 - "Discuss my first love and first kiss"

lol I hate talking about my love life as secretive as I am.

First Kiss: I was in 6th grade when I started kissing. I still see this guy once in a blue moon. We act like we don't know each other and I'm totally fine with that. :)

First Love: I was in love with this one guy but I didn't do my part to keep him around. I was too busy run around trying to be perfect and making excuses etc. When I was blaming him for quitting on me, I was really blaming myself for being a jerk and dragging my feet. Now that we are older, I know things wouldn't be the same if we crossed paths today. It's too late to rekindle and it took me months to accept that. At this point, I just leave our friendship the way that it is.....

Day 9 - "How you hope your future will be like"

I'm so open to anything right now! I wouldn't be surprise if I graduate with BA in English and go back to school to start another career in something else. I love change....wait. Let me just say I don't MIND evolving. If anything, I want to be COMPLETELY satisfied with myself in the future mentally and physically.

As long as I am happy, everything else will fall in line - Simply Jade

#30WriteNow Challenge Day 5

Day 5 - "A time you thought about ending your own life"

Wow, this is interesting. It's been plenty of occasions where I didn't want to leave the house and hated everything about my life. Fortunately, I never thought about taking my own life because I wouldn't want to bring my family that much of pain. I just know that I can overcome anxiety and depression.

It's still room to grow and learn - Simply Jade

Oh hell... I don't know but I do know that I want to be financially stable, happy and married. I can't think so far ahead.....

#30WriteNow Challenge Day 1

Day 1 - "Current relationship, if single discuss how life is"

I am single....very single. Its been this way forever. Of course I'm looking but it's such a hassle. The only good part about being single is that you are not obligated  to someone and blah blah. Only a night....when it finally hits you that you want someone to love on and be under ( I think about it every night). I'm getting too old for crushes and staying in the "Friend Zone" for a long period of time. I would love to be in a relationship lol.
