time will pass

Resolutions are for the Weak Minded

How many people do you know that on January 1st say all of the cliched “I’m giving up drinking”, “I’m gong to start working out” “…eat healthier”,”…write in a journal”,”….blah,blah,blah….”  Well, how weak minded of them to think that they need the start of a new year to achieve any of their extreme dramatic goals. Our goals can start at any point, we don’t need a specific date like the first of a new year to become the person we want to be.

Do you know how many firsts there are in the year? Lets break it down

1 1st of the year

12 1sts of the months

52 1sts of the weeks

365 1sts of the days (366 if its a leap year)

So if you need a legitimate “1st of something” to start up a new workout program, challenge, job, life goal, ect. I just gave you over 400 of them. However if you’re really dedicated to the new you, you shouldn’t need a “1st”!

You are strong enough to do it right now! Put down that cookie, look up the closest gym, grab a piece of paper. Start whatever you are putting off right now, you can do it!!!

Some people say that is takes 21 days to form a habit but I think that if your goals are strong enough it will just be your shear drive that will keep you going on throughout the days. Put the gym in your schedule everyday, make a meal plan every night, set a reminder to write in a journal everyday, or say hello to the first person you see at the coffee shop every morning. Everyday you will be one step closer to meeting your goals and being that better person. By the end of it you won’t remember if you started on the 1st of January or if it was in the middle of the year, if it was a Monday or a Thursday. All you will remember is that you transformed into a newer better you. You took that major step that you needed to take and now you are someone you are proud of. You were strong enough to make your goal or resolution. You are amazing!

Now what are you waiting for?! GO OUT AND START!!! ❤

First Week of a New Semester

So it’s been a little over a week from my last post. Sorry for that:) This semester seems like it’s going to be killer!!

This semester I only have 14 credits or 4 classes with a lab. This is my smallest course load this far but it seems like it will be my hardest. I am taking Chem 111 (General College Chemistry) and Lab, Bio 228 (Part 2 of Human Anatomy), University foundations 300, and Adolescent Developmental Psychology. My Chemistry class and lab are seeming like they will be the hardest which sucks.

For my University Foundations class it is about how to market yourself to the professional work, so I have an ePortfolio in the process of being finished! Go check it out 🙂 http://taylornehereportfolio.weebly.com  *Remember it is a work in progress so don’t be to rough on it but I would love feedback!!

Human Anatomy is killing me with all the memorization but I know I can do it, cause I passed with an A last semester and I was taking 18 credits!

The Disability Resource Center screwed me over last week. With being diabetic I have to get all my professors to sign agreements acknowledging my disease and extraordinary absences, but since my lab only allows one absence and my UF class is a group work class absences are less than ideal and there is no need for an agreement because if I miss a class I can’t really make it up in any way. The DRC seems to think my professors just love getting bombarded with extra forms and that they have more time to work of the sh*t, which mind you they don’t! And neither do I!! I have to go back and get these 2 professors to resign a different form stating why absences aren’t makeupable! SO FETCHING STUPID!! Which the real kicker is I don’t even feel like I should have to fill out these forms but my university requires it.   Well there is my rant for the day, thanks for listening! 🙂

The Options

The future is the big unknown, right? Well, what would you do if it wasn’t so unknown. That is the one question everyone asks themselves and there is always a reply, but never an action taken.

My future (as of right now) has these options open to me. They all seem like fun opportunities and with the next week or two I am going to post a blog about each and every option with pros and cons. Maybe some of you will enjoy it and have advise or input for me, that I would greatly appreciate. But more than likely everybody will ask, why is she posting this, we could care less about some random college and how it might affect her. Sure that is true, but hopefully with writing down all of he facts I will get one step closer to finding what I adventure I want to strive for. So here they are….

1. Antioch University (Fall 2013)-Business and Social Entrepreneurship in Los Angeles 
2.Otis Art College (Fall 2013)-Advertising in Los Angeles
3. EOU- School of Nursing (Fall 2013) in La Grande, Oregon 
4. BSU- School of Nursing (Spring 2014) in Boise, Idaho
5. LMU- Athletic Training (Fall 2012) in Los Angeles with opportunity to get RN or PT schooling 
All of these very interesting and exciting opportunities how does a person just pick one of them?!
I also have aspirations to get into the WMMA (Woman Mixed Martial Arts) world with UFC. I know all the right people and have the drive to do it but currently where I live coaches and gyms are hard to come by. With moving to LA I would be in a better position to accomplish this goal.
I want to make my mark on this world but I just have to figure out the right way to go about that 🙂

The Hype

The hype about growing old… Where does it come from, how do we know what to be, why to be it, and how to be it?…. I think it is more life getting pushed off a cliff and hoping you fly.

With being a sophomore in college I thought I had it all figured out. I was going to be a nurse, help children with illnesses, be a great health care professional and volunteer at medical camps. But when mailing those final pieces of to nursing school admissions offices, something changed. Questions like what if I don’t like being a nurse, what if I suck at being a nurse, what if I hate it in 10 years, started popping up into my mind.

WHAT IF-  Probably two of the scariest, life changing, worst words you can ask yourself when trying to figure out your future. But seriously, who decided that right out of high school a person, kid may I add, is supposed to know what to do with their lives and to pick a major that affects the whole rest of their life, which hopefully will be 50+ years. That one decision can decide where you live, who you are as a person, who you meet, your friends, if you find your soul mate, what you do for fun, how stressful/adventurous your life is, and much much more! So who came up with the brilliant idea that an 18-year-old is capable and mature enough to decide a major factor that shapes the rest of their lives with minimal preparation.

There is the so-called “correct given path”. This path that you are supposed to follow will lead you to your correct life, occupation, family, and wealth, but how do we know we are on the correct path? I think there are multiple paths and all lead to greatness as long as you put your whole heart into it.  How to decide which path to follow is the real question. There are so many options and available opportunities. Life is so long and you don’t what to live with the regret of choosing one path over another, so how do you choose. This is where our culture is flawed. We live for so long but we rush, rush, and rush some more to become an adult but we don’t spend near enough time exploring ourselves and who we are, not who we think we should be. Our culture is so focused on getting that degree as quick as possible, getting into that job, and finding that soul mate but not enough time is spent exploring the world, finding all of our soul mates, and most importantly FINDING YOURSELF. 

So the point of this blog to explore and hopefully find myself and which path fits me best. But I do know that

54676582946192387_1B0b3ush_bwhich ever path I choose I will but my whole heart into it because like my good friend says the time will pass anyways; might as well put it to its best use 😉

“Don’t let the …

“Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.”
Earl Nightingale

This quote is one of my favorites, and something I need to remember more often. I’m always worried about what if, why, and when. The time will pass, do what you love!
