Take Care Of Your Body

If you spend a lot of time on your computer, make sure you take frequent breaks. Take it from me. 

I was recently diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which is a condition where the median nerve is irritated and inflamed. This can cause pain, tingling, burning and twitching sensations on the hands and arms. The way that I got it was by my 'long breaks' after shortly working on school stuff, which were technically many hours long. I also had my wrists bent in an awkward…

Being a Big Sister

Hey everyone! Super sorry it's been so long but as I said before I've been really busy, our first football game is tomorrow (or today, depending on when you're reading this) and we've literally been prepping for this for a couple weeks.

So, as you may or may not know, I am a big sister to three little monsters. Their names are Emilio, Landry, and Elijah. Emilio is 13, Landry - or Lala as we call her - is 8, and Elijah is 5.

Being a big sister is a big part of my life and don't get me… Continue

Senior Year, Stressed & Sadness.

Hi loves, 

I hope everyone had (or will have) a great first week of school. 

I'm supposed to be a senior this year, but I'm so far behind I don't know what to consider myself. It's really difficult as a homeschooler to know if you are leveled with your peers. I honestly wish I was attending a real school. I regret not having the traditional high school experience, you know - homecoming, prom, graduation, etc.

I succeeded academically from K - 7th…

School Start-Up = Changes

Hey what's up guys! Sorry it's been a while, I have been so stressed out lately with school and college and retaking the ACT and cheer I have not had really any time to write. I have a ton going on right now so I'm sorry if I don't update every single day. But I'm going to try!!

So, for me, school starts in like three weeks. Some people are excited, especially some of the other seniors I know. Woohoo we're seniors! We're the big dogs, the head of the school, the top of the food chain! Who… Continue

Women in Movies

Women in Movies

 

I love watching movies! Practically anyone can say this. There’s a movie genre for everyone out there, although some are more popular than others. Regardless, I’m sure most of us can say we’ve sat down and enjoyed plenty of movies in our lives...but do we ever stop to think about what message the movie is sending to the audience apart from the overall themes of the movie…

Smile Because It Looks Good on You!

Hey everyone! So today I decided to do sort of an inspirational post. I write some pretty deep stuff on my other blog and I always get a ton of great feedback so I thought I'd try it on here and see if I got the same responce!



We all know how it feels when you don't feel like you're good enough. When it seems like there are so many other better girls out there than you and there's nothing you can do about it. Speaking from experience, yeah it sucks. It sucks when it seems like some… Continue

McDonald's can harm your health

I think that it's really sad that only in like 3 days the guy already gained 13 pounds from just eating mcdonalds for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like you could even die from eating to much fat and your blood pressure could rise our heart tightens up. Eating to much fatty food can do a lot of things to your body. I no we all like junk food but sometimes we have to et healthy foods for our health. I can't believe that he ate mcdonalds straight for 30 days. The obesity level has… Continue

The Fiesta!!

When my grandma first got sick, she was sad because she wasn't able to go to Puerto Vallarta. She was sad because she couldn't go to the fiestas there so my grandpa said he would throw her her own fiesta and that's how it all started.

When my grandma passed away, it hit us all really hard. It's been 6 years now, but it's like we were just getting the call yesterday. We all miss her a ton but we know that she wouldn't want us to be sad, she'd want us to be happy and having fun, so that's… Continue

Menopause Makes Women Mad?

I never imagined id be one to write about menopausal mothers, as I would blindly like to forget that my mother has passed through this stage in her life.

My boyfriends’ family is going through what seems like the most difficult time with their mother and her erratic behavior. I am sure it is both her repetitive child like behavior that’s slowly making them feel  as though they are losing their mind. In the 2 years that…
