Back to School Update

Hi guys!

How was your summer? Mine was pretty boring. I just worked :P. So I know that some of you have already started school or are going back soon. I moved in to residence on Thursday of last week and my first class is tomorrow, yay… This week is quite busy for me because of frosh week.  I also have a roommate and she’s really nice, which is good because I know there are some horror stories when it comes to residences.

I know this post is short, but since I haven’t posted in awhile I wanted to give you guys a little update. Hopefully, I will be able to post something else soon if things are not to hectic.

What did you do this summer? Did you travel? Let me know by commenting on this post 🙂

Lots of love

Catching up

Hey guys! I know it’s been a very long time since I posted something. I’ve been very busy between school, applying to universities and work. So, I’m just finishing up my end of semester project, which is to create a business plan. It’s going not too bad, except for the fact that I cannot seem to get my balance sheet to balance. For those, who have no idea what that means, basically your assets = liabilities + owner equity for your balance sheet to balance. Anyway, enough with the boring school talk. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately… I’m currently trying to finish reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. I’m like halfway through the book and I already think that the movies not that great, considering they were based on the books. I’m sad that the final episode of Bones is on Tuesday (March 28th). I’m also very excited for the new Netflix series Thirteen Reasons Why, which is based on the book. I did a review of the book, if you want to check it out just click on the link -> 13 Reasons Why. The series is premiering on March 31st (I think).

Well, that’s all the news I have for now (exciting, I know… lol). What are you guys up to these days? Let me know by commenting on this post 🙂

Wherever You Are

Hi guys!

School is finally over!! Yay!!  I haven’t been writing lately because my heart wasn’t in it. But recently something happened that made me want to write. I have not idea about what. But whenever I feel sad or lost writing has always made me feel better. It’s funny because I would dream about what I wanted my life to be. I was/am a hopeless romantic. So I would always fantasized about the perfect way a guy would ask me to prom and such. But recently, I realized that I didn’t do that anymore and I had somewhat stopped writing because my life is everything I wanted. I finally was in a good place. I finally found a good guy, but somehow I kept convincing myself that this wouldn’t last because these things don’t happen to me. But it did, somehow. And somehow, I thought that being alone is easier than being with someone else because I got to control the pain I felt or what ever else would happen to me. But that’s not how things work. Plus, I’ve learned that you have to enjoy things while they last.

“Every song ends, but is that a reason not to enjoy the music” -Peyton Sawyer, One Tree Hill

I love this quote. Anyway, I figure this is getting long enough. So I’ll talk to you guys soon? If I haven’t already bored you to death 😉

 

Long Distance Relationships

Hey guys!

I know it’s been a while. I’ve been busy with school and now that I have a job at a bakery, my time is very limited between now and the end of school.

Anyway, let’s talk about long distance relationships. The reason why I’m bringing this up is because I know how hard long distance relationship can be, since I am currently in one. My boyfriend is currently living at home for the second summer in a row, and home is 5 hours away from where I  live, which well sucks. Long distance relationship for first timers or for anyone really can be hard and scary, especially when you are aware of the success rate. Honestly, every relationship is different and not every long distance relationship fail. I know a lot that end up succeeding. If you look at the big picture, it definitely is scary. But don’t. Focus on the small things, it’ll make the big things feel less big and scary. For instance, if you are in a long distance relationship try taking it one day at time, take it day by day. And eventually, it’ll be over before you know it.A awesome person gave me that advice. I know for some of you it’s hard to do that, to take it day by day. I struggle with it at times to and that’s normal. It’s normal to miss someone and it’s normal to be afraid. I know long distance relationships are not easy, but in a way they are beautiful and special. They make you appreciate the time you spend with your significant other more than you probably normally would.

What are your thoughts on long distance relationships? Let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂

Self-injury awareness day

Hi guys!

Today is self-injury awareness day. I was going to post this last year, but I wasn’t ready. This year I feel like I am. In the spirits of self-injury awareness day, I would like to share my story with you. It all started 5 years ago, I had a hard time coping with my feelings, especially when I felt anxious or overwhelmed by them. I developed an unhealthy way to cope, which was cutting. Since I was sacred of accidentally cutting too deep, I used paper clips. Somehow cutting made dealing with my emotions easier, by feeling physical pain rather than emotional pain. Over the years, this method became an addiction. It was hard for me to stop. I also got over my fear of cutting too deep and started to use razor blades. Last year, I reached out to my boyfriend and he helped me along with my parents. I gave my razors and bracelets to my boyfriend for him to hide. A lot of people have different ways of overcoming self-harming, such as holding ice cubes, putting your head under water for a while, drawing, the butterfly project, etc. The butterfly project is drawing a butterfly on your wrist or where you self-harm and naming it after a person you care about. If the butterfly fades naturally than it “flew away” if you self-harm the butterfly (that person) “dies”. A lot of those techniques didn’t work for me. I had to face my feelings head on. Once I did that, I felt better. I haven’t been cutting for a year now. Needless to say, that doesn’t mean that I don’t think about cutting from time to time, but the strong urge of doing it faded and it’s easier to control. I’ve decided to share my story today because I know I’m not the only person who struggled with this. And to people who are still struggling with it, you are not alone. I also know, some people don’t understand this, which is normal. It’s hard to understand, but if you know someone who’s going through something similar, just being there for them is enough. Getting clean (stop self-harming) is not easy, and yeah you may relapse a couple of times, I know I did. But if you’re struggling with this, I believe you can get past it. I believe in you, you just need to believe in yourself too. And always remember that you are never alone.

Opening up is never easy

Hey everyone!

These past few days I’ve been thinking about what to share about myself. I realized that I’m afraid of doing just that. I’m afraid of being judged for what I say or of how it might be perceived. All that to say that I’m a very guarded person. But I am trying to change that as terrifying that might be. I have lots of irrational fears. I’d like to think that we all do. Plus irrationality is somewhat subjective in my opinion. One of the things I’m afraid of is people, which is an odd thing because I was quite the social butterfly as a child. As I grew up, I developed social anxiety. I guess high school will sometimes to that to you. We all experience high school differently. I found it hard to make long lasting friends in high school. Now that doesn’t mean I didn’t make some. It just means I wasn’t part of the popular crowd or any crowd really. I was the girl floating in between trying to find her place. I often felt alone.

I’m sorry for cutting this post short, but I’m really tired. Why don’t you guys tell me what you’re afraid of or how high school was like for you? No matter how it was.

Lots of love,

Lia

A Brand New Year

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I wish you all a happy belated New Year! Sorry for not writing during the holidays. Hopefully school won’t be too busy this semester. Anyway, what did you guys do during the holidays? I spent it with my family and my boyfriend. Over the holidays, my boyfriend got me into D&D (Dungeons and Dragons). For those who do not know that D&D is, to sum it up it’s a role playing game. I don’t really know how to describe it myself other than you role play a character and go on adventures. If anyone is familiar with League of Legends, mlulu_0y D&D character resembles to Lulu. For those who are not familiar with Lulu she is a fae sorceress and she has fairy companion named Pix. The picture on the right is Lulu. Let’s see what else happened during the holidays? The graphics card on my laptop “broke”. Something funny happened to it. It’s hard to explain. I’d have to show it to you.

In terms of presents, I got a lot of books such as The Bane Chronicles & Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, Zodiac by Romina Russell, Teardrop & Unforgiven by Lauren Kate. I am really exciting to  read all of them. I will be doing reviews on the books once I’ve read them. I got a Lulu plushy because I just think she is so cute and my favorite League of Legends character. I also got a Pandora bracelet and a Pandora heart charm to go with the bracelet and small stuff like money & clothes.

A little side note before finishing this post: This year, I will be working on making more posts about me so you guys can get to know me better.

What did you get for Christmas? Do you have any New Year resolutions? Let me know by commenting on this post 🙂 . I’m also looking forward to hear what you did for the holidays.

Lots of love

Sunday night reflexions

Hey guys,

The end of the year is approaching! So, do you have plans this summer? If so what are they? I’m planning to work, but I still haven’t found a job. Finding a job is harder than I thought it would be and sometimes I do lose faith in myself. I try not to, but it’s hard when you have applied everywhere, and you are still jobless. It’s my last day of class tomorrow, then I have to study for exams :(. I just wish life would give me a break you know? A break to take it all in, a break to breath, to just be in peace with the world. I know this post is short and not very interesting, but I have lost inspiration. I don’t know what to write about. I’m not a make-up person and I don’t really like shopping… (I’m weird, I know). I promise that my next post will be more entertaining.

Anyway, I would love to know what you have planned for this summer! Let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂

Lots of love

Day 30 – Update

Hey guys!

So this is the last day of my 30 day writing challenge and since this post is about anything I want, I thought I would give you and update and what to expect in the up coming days. I haven’t been writing a lot lately. I wold love to continue writing piece I have already starting, but I’m so busy with you that will have to wait until the summer. Blogging wise, I’m going to continue my music posts, if you have an artist/song to suggest please do. I would like to talk about a couple books as well, I would like to do 13 Reasons Why and The Mortal Instruments (but I have to finish the last book of the series first). I would also like to do a post on the butterfly project and on the organization To Write Love On Her Arms.  I will try to post daily once school is officially over.

If you have anything suggestions or things you would like to address, let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂

Lots of love
