Re-invigoration !!!

Hola! Como estas!

Hello everyone!! It has been a long break! Is anyone even still here *tries to clear imaginary spider webs*. I have really missed coming here to write down my thoughts. As you can tell by my long absence, I have been really really busy. I wasn’t even sure this blog still existed because I just stopped paying any attention to it lol, but today, a friend of mine posted on Instagram about her new blog post and I was like, wow, I do have a blog, lemme check it out really quick! Going through my friend’s blog posts and my past posts made me remember why I started this blog and so, yeah, I am back!

As I was about to start writing this blog, the first thing that came to my mind was “RE-INVIGORATION”.  I checked google for the definition, and it basically means to give new energy or strength to something. So, for the next few months, I would be brainstorming on ideas to re-invigorate my blog because this thing is almost dead! Has anyone else gone through this process before? If yes, what was it like? And what would you recommend I do? Please leave your comments below if you have any advice! One of the first re-invigoration idea I currently have is to do an academic series, I would explain more about that below.

Quick update on my life, I graduated from my community college last summer (yaay!) and I am now in a 4-year college! The transition has been good, but every college student can admit the workload is strenuous. College is really strenuous on its own, but being a transfer student makes it harder. It’s harder to meet people, harder to study in groups etc. I also decided to be a commuter since my house is not so far away from my school. The combination of these three situations can make your college life boring and more difficult than normal.

The good news is that over these past semesters, I have been able to figure out how to balance my academic, social, and mental life. As a college student getting involved on campus, doing well in classes, forming good rapport with your teachers etc. is very important! So…over the next couple of weeks/months, I would be starting my first blog series, and I would be sharing what I have learned from my personal experience, and generally talking to people, on what people can do to make their college experience better. This would be called, ‘Academic series’, I am so excited to share what I have learned guys!

Valentine’s day has come upon us

Hi y’all! It’s been a while you heard from me. I know you missed me already..lol

I resumed classes about a few weeks ago and mehn, it’s been hectic! If you read my post here (https://theblessedlady.wordpress.com/2016/01/14/226/) you would see that I blogged about resuming school and the classes I would be taking in the spring semester. I obviously shouldn’t be taking some classes together, some of those classes are so hard! In this post,(https://theblessedlady.wordpress.com/2015/12/30/yall-getting-into-this-newyearresolutions-thingy/) I talked about some of my new year resolutions. Please.. don’t ask me how my new year resolutions are going🙈🙈.. I have not been able to keep up with them.. buh I am trying! * sad face emoji*

Tomorrow (or today, depending on what part of the world that you’re in) is valentine’s day! And I really don’t have any plan for val’s day.. I would prolly be stuck in my room, under my blanket. And then, try to solve math.. (I have a trigonometry exam on Tuesday!) I’m obviously bae-less.. so, I guess I don’t have to worry about the mushy stuffs…lol.

Also, you would notice that I changed by blog’s theme. I decided to change the old theme because I wanted to try a new look. What do y’all think of this new theme? And my blogging101 friends, how are your blogs coming along?

What  are your plans for the coming valentine’s day.. I hope you’re not stuck up in a hole like me!

Even as you go about celebrating valentine’s day, remember the one who loved us even when we didn’t love him. Remember the father of love, the father of light. Be safe out there and don’t make decisions that would haunt you for life based on a moment of pleasure.  Have a love-filled Valentine. From me to you😘

LIGHT, SHINE

WALKING ACTIVELY

You heard he is a cultist. You could not believe it, you said “He is so young and He is just 16 and in SS1”. Now, you have seen him  marijuana parting his lips, a tattooed snake on his arm and in his hand is a bottle of beer. You heard him say that his favorite date is the 7th of July, and you assumed that was his birthday. You stood afar and criticized him, you told your friends that hell awaits him, you shook your head and said to
yourself, “He is already doomed”. But you do not know that within the “bad, hard guy” lies a fragile, aching heart wanting to be loved and showed a little care. Now, he only finds solace in his gang because his dad and mom are on the brink of divorce!

She knocked on your door asking to help you do anything…

Back to school..

Whew! The holidays are over already:'(:'(. Some have gone back to school while others resume later on. I resume next Tuesday and I am kinda excited about going back to school. I haven’t been going out much, so, you can’t blame a girl that needs to get out of tha house! lol.

I am not taking many classes this semester, in fact I am taking just four classes. I would be taking biology, chemistry, mathematics and Introduction to Philosophy. I am kind of excited about taking a class in Philosophy because I have heard it’s an interesting class and its also interactive. Also, they said it would involve field work. I don’t know what they mean by field work tho.. does anyone knows what that means?

I would also be taking biology.. I have a love-hate relationship with biology. I like some parts and I don’t like other parts..so I hope to ace the parts I’m strong in. I would be taking an online chemistry class. Have anyone ever taken online chemistry class and what was it like? I would love to hear y’all experiences, so that I can work on them.

Since I am not taking many classes, I hope to actually do more extracurriculars, write more blog posts and get involved on campus. What are your goals for this semester?

My confidence story.

I like to see my blog as somewhere that I can pour out thoughts, experiences etc.. I see it as a place where I can come back in some years time and see that I have grown in different areas not just in age.  I want to have learned more lessons and apply what I preach to my personal life.
I think my future self would want me to learn about confidence. As a young child, I have always lacked the confidence that many of my mates had.  There are many things that could have led to this but I don’t know any. As a result of this lack of confidence, I have been tagged as “the quiet girl”, ” the girl that doesn’t talk” and etc. As I grew older, I noticed that I actually lacked confidence a bit. I think one major cause would be accent barrier. Apart from that, I was just nervous and “scared” to say what I think. The scared is in quotes because it wasn’t like I was scared to talk.. It was just kinda weird. And unexplainable…lol.
A lesson that i have learned as a teenager is that you need to respect and love yourself. I have learned that if you don’t respect yourself, others would treat you as trash. If you don’t learn to speak your mind without considering what others think and all, you would probably end up being bullied for the most part of your teenage life. To be clear, I wasn’t bullied as a young child, but I knew people who were. And I noticed many of them lacked confidence. We should note that lack of confidence generally doesn’t mean low self esteem. One could have an healthy self esteem and still struggle with confidence.
Confidence is a vague word and different people have different issues but my own issue was both public speaking and interpersonal communication. I took a public speaking class and I can tell you, I don’t have much issues with public speaking now. I am considering doing an interpersonal skills class tho. Interpersonal skills would focus on our day to day lives and the issues we face. It would teach about interacting with different kinds of people.
In conclusion, I decided to do a blog post on confidence because I think the earlier we discover that our joy shouldn’t be placed on what others think of us is the earlier we would enjoy ourselves. Tbh with y’all, I am still not 100% confident at every point in time, but it is a process that I am going through and I am better than I was yesterday.
If you have ever had confidence issues, you could please share your process. Thanks.

Who am I?

Hello everyone. I’m taking a blogging101 class and my first assignment is to introduce myself. I’m Ray and I consider blogging a way of “detoxifying”. I think it’s a great way to communicate with others.

I decided to htextgram_1451885616ave a blog not a personal journal because I believe everyone can learn from it. And tbh with y’all, it’s easier to be focused that way. I am more likely to be committed when I know that people are actually reading and learning.

I would be talking about different things on my blog. I would talk about my premed journey as an international student. I would talk about some of my daily thoughts, experiences. I’m also going to discuss some of the personal things that no one wants to talk about but ought to be said. I would talk about Christ. I’m also considering some fashion posts too. A major thing I would be talking about is confidence. It’s a very important attribute…

If I blog successfully throughout this year 2016, I would hope to have rehashed some of my fears and actually put what I’m saying into action. I would also hope to encourage anyone out there that has gone through some of the things I’m currently going through or anyone going through situations similar to what I went through.

Y’all getting into this #newyearresolutions thingy?

It’s the 30th day of December 2015. Woooww! This year by far has been one of the most shitty but fulfilling years for me. I made some major changes. I got admitted into a major university but I had to leave later on.  So, straight to my new year resolutions or whatever we would choose to call it.

My number one goal is to actually have a better relationship with God. I mean I want to be able to sit in his presence and learn and be conformed to his word.

I have a lot of goals for my academics.. I am in my sophomore year now and as a premed I have to start working on my extracurriculars. I am planning to devote more time to the “sopsyched club.” This club is mainly for volunteering and extracurriculars stuffs and it’s really good. I’m also thinking of working together with other premeds. Like just ask them questions on how they are preparing for med school. If they have any place they would recommend for shadowing. I am also thinking of getting involved with the Phi Theta Kappa, preferably becoming a committee. I am also thinking of asking my professors about research opportunities if I can help them. Biology club is another organization that I want to get more involved with.

Also, I want to start volunteering in the hospital and start a work study program. Preferably I would work as a lab assistant. This way I can gain money and experience. I think this would be a really good investment both for me and my medical school resume.

Another new year resolution is to actually exercise more and eat healthier. I think this resolution is a very common one (if not the most common new year resolution) and I hope to see it through. I have been visiting the gym for about 3 months now and I hope to actually keep it up. I also want to incorporate more veggies fruits, whole wheats etc.. into what I eat.

Last, I am really hoping I would improve my social communications skill. It’S a major key as dj Khaled would say…lol.

In conclusion, I hope God helps me in getting every thing done.

Say a word of prayer for me.. please.

Y’all should write out what you want to accomplish. And make sure you are working towards accomplishing them.

Love y’all.
