Running Wild

Saturday April 16th 2011

On Saturday, I ran my first ever half-marathon! Since the beginning of training they had warned us about this challenging course: The ZOOMA Austin half marathon is a challenging course through the scenic Texas countryside with rolling hills. THEY WEREN'T LYING ABOUT THOSE HILLS! I was so excited the day of the race. My friend Jarrah, who's been my friend since middle school, came from Dallas to watch me. Besides the killer hills, the course was so nice. Overall it was a great experience. I was able to be part of such an amazing group of people. And with the help of family and friends I was also able to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Happy Birthday To Me!!!!!!!!


So today is my birthday! -_- ACTUALLY!!!!!!!!! It didn't feel like my birthday at all. I had a night exam so that ruined my ENTIRE DAY. ENTIRE because I've been studying since yesterday, I haven't slept and I'm super hungry. I'm not gonna lie, I felt a little sad because I didn't get to see any of my friends :( I was chain to a desk at the library studying all day..... I didn't even get a birthday hug. I guess I'm just use to being surrounded by family and friends on this special day that I so I super lonely. But I'm can't complain because I know other people have it worst, might not even have anybody at all. Thankfully Facebook remind me I have some pretty awesome friends! I've been blessed in so many ways, maybe not today, but thank God for blessing me with another awesome year! There's 20 minutes left till my birthday is over. I guess I'll watch South Park and pass out. I'm soooooooooooooooooooo sleepy. Night

About my exam, let's not talk about it... EVER.

So Many Things To Do, So Little Time

Today I woke up to a mix of emotions. Everything in my life seems to be going wrong and I'm slowly giving up. I just feel so helpless. Over the weekend I was able to forget about all my problems. Playing soccer, having dinner with friends, dancing, tanning, swimming... oh yes did I forget. But today reality woke me up with a big slap across the face. To say I'm not looking forward to this week is an understatement. PAPER DUE, EXAMS, GROUP PROJECTS, RUNNING AS MUCH AS I CAN... and that's not including personal problems I have going on. I'm not even looking forward to my birthday, which happens to be on the day of an exam.Since it will be a night exam, I'll most likely spend it studying at the library. But two things I do look forward to this weekend are: 1) My friend Jarrah coming from Dallas to visit me and 2) I will be running the Zooma Half-Marathon. I'm ready for the weekend to be here but even then I'll still have my issues to deal with after. Sometimes I wish it wasn't me but nobody said life would be this easy. I just hope to one day be able to look back at all this and laugh about it.... as I enjoy myself by the beach.

Today at the library... sexy stuff huh
me once all this is over with... okay maybe in a couple of years lol

‎"Anything worth having is worth fighting for"

I'm here on campus by a Wendy's trying to hold my tears... okay so I just broke down silently. I've been having such a bad day I don't even know where to start. Walking to class, I just wanted to cry. I could feel my tears and frustration building up. I never thought I would have to struggle so much. I feel like it's all happening again! Last year around this time, I went through probably one of the worst times of my life. I don't really talk about it because it's something so humiliating and painful I don't like to share with the whole world. But sometimes I do ask myself "why me?" I just have to take it as a life lesson I guess. In times like these I just want to be surrounded by my family and friends. But I'm so stubborn when it comes to asking for help. I've always been all about being independent and holding your own, but I really wish I had a "person." Someone who can give me hug and tell me everything is going to be okay. All I have is myself and I can't seem to convince myself everything will be okay.
