WEEK 4 + 5: I actually went out???

I’m so sorry for missing week 4! I didn’t do much anyways lol

So this past weekend was really fun! I actually went out instead of staying in all day, which I have been doing so much lately. I’ve just been so lazy.

My Friday night was so much fun, the most fun I’ve had in a while. My friends and I went to the beach and just drank and talked and played volleyball with some white guys lol (it’s cuz there’s a huge Navy ship here for a bit so there were hella military guys/girls all over Tumon). The sunset was beautiful (which has been rare lately because it’s been nothing but rainy) and it was great to just sit with my friends and talk.

And then on Saturday, I hung out with my cousin and we watched (don’t judge me) Fifty Shades Darker. and before you’re like ew Jacky that’s gross, it was honestly a pretty good movie. It was actually really romantic lol. And now my cousins and I are planning a trip to the Philippines after graduation so I’m pretty excited for that, if it all works out!

But yeah, I just thought I’d write about what I did this weekend because I was actually out for a change. It’s weird because I am an extrovert but I’ve been home so much lately.

Anyways. Happy Valentine’s Day but more importantly, HAPPY GALENTINE’S DAY!!!!!

I miss you three so much!

WEEK 3: A Little Less Serious

I apologize for always being the last to post and for posting especially late this week aslkdjfajsd;fjwoiejr (but I promise, I had a valid reason)

This week, I’ve been put in a lot of stressful situations where I’m reminded that I really need to take life a little bit less seriously. So I just kinda wanted to put my (very scattered) thoughts out here about that.

So a lot of stressful things happened this week that I had no control over, but my friends reminded me to laugh it off. We were in class talking about one of these things that was stressing me out, and my friend just started singing. Like out of the blue, she started singing a random song she made up. And then I started singing. And then I forgot about what I was stressing out about. It was something so stupid but it helped.

So bottom line, I was just reminded about how crazy and stressful life is and is gonna be in the future. But we can choose to worry and freak out about it (which I did a lot before, but I’m working on it) or we can choose to laugh it off, find a solution, and move on. Life doesn’t always have to be so serious and I need to remind myself about this.

I don’t really know where else I’m going with this but yeah.

My thoughts are kind of everywhere at the moment and I’ve just had a glass of wine so I’m not 100% here (I am slowly becoming a wino, guys). But I hope you’re all doing well with school and your friends and everything else we’ve got going on in our crazy lives.

 

WEEK 2: Last first day

Had my last first day of school EVER this past week (*cries*)

I’m writing this in my room after a very long and stressful day, so I’m sorry if it quickly turns into a rant. This post is probably gonna be everywhere today because my mind is going a million miles per hour right now (*cries again*).

So I guess this past week was our professors just throwing us back into reality. I don’t want to bore you with all the horrors that occur in nursing school (cue Mr. Kannon’s weird science noise *du nu nuuuuuuh*). But I don’t even know, I just feel so pressured right now. But whatever. I can do it!!!

ANYWAYS. This last first day of classes was bittersweet (of course). I was happy because I’m so excited and ready to graduate and be done with school (for now lol). I’m excited for our pinning ceremony because it’ll be this big grand party where we celebrate what we’ve done and it’s really intimate and there’s TONS of crying (especially from me lol).

But I’m also shocked. I can’t believe how fast time flies by. In high school, I never would have thought that I would still be home going to college at UOG. But I also never would have thought that I would be this happy. I would never have thought that I would absolutely fall in love with this career. I never would have thought that I would meet the wonderful and caring friends that I have and that I can call family. I never would have thought that I would still be so close to you three and that I would do anything for you because distance is nothing. I’m just so beyond blessed, so I’m taking advantage of this and using it to stay motivated!!! (Super random but I’ve also been listening to Logic and idek but his music just pumps me up lol)

It’s each of our last semesters so let’s finish strong! WE CAN DO IT! 

As always, love and miss you.

WEEK 1: Thoughts on friendships

I suck at writing but when it’s put as a way to keep in touch with my three best friends, then I’m all for it (but still, I suck at writing). I’m just excited to read how we’re doing.

It’s been a week since I’ve been back home and I guess I’m getting back into the swing of things (I mean, if the swing of things is watching Bates Motel all day then yeah, I’m getting back into the swing of things lol. jk, just wait till the semester starts *cries*). It’s weird being back home. Every time I go off-island and come back, I know I’ll be a bit depressed for a while. And I expected that this time around, but I didn’t know I’d miss you all this much. Now this isn’t going to be some depressing blog post about everything I miss but it goes without saying that I miss you three so much.

What this blog post is about is some of my thoughts on friendships. I got thinking about my friendships with people on my flights back home when I was looking through our trip pictures (and yes, I did tear up a little… or maybe a lot. The girl sitting next to me probably thought I was weird but whatever). I like to say that I have good friendships in my life. It’s what keeps me excited and motivated for each day. I have my relationship with my mom, who is my #1 best friend. I have my nursing friends, who have seen me ugly cry (lol). I have you guys, who are my oldest and closest friends even when we’re apart.

And this got me thinking about how blessed I am to have these relationships and these friendships in my life. I know not everyone has people in their lives who they can go to for anything and everything. But I do, and I will always be grateful. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without my friends.

I’m excited for what this blog will lead to in our friendships and I’m excited to check in every week to see what you’ve all written.

I saw this painted on a mug in Ivy’s apartment. It was aesthetic af and cute af lol.

“Friends are like stars. You can’t always see them but you know they’re always there.” I miss you all so much! Have a good week!
