With keeping this blog this semester I have learned that I do not mind writing when I get to talk about things I want to it comes easier because I have ideas and I get excited about having something to say. Keeping this blog I have also learned that writing from a prompt came be easy and hard when you want to say everything in a few sentences but you have to write more for a prompt. There are good things as well like you do not have to think about what you are going to write about because it is already decided for you. For example this prompt for our last blog post for this class was about what I have learned from writing a blog throughout the semester. And that’s easy I have learned that I can write even with terrible grammar or not making sense but to me. And that’s fine to me this blog I kept in minded was to have the requirements but also to just write for me and not worry about all the grammar and write what comes to mind and I am happy for doing that this semester. So overall I have learned about myself and the way I write naturally and all that information will help me grow as a writer.
My greatest achievement for this semester was having surgery. This was an achievement because it was a breast reduction and this surgery improved my life and well-being. I am successfully recovered from the painful surgery. Having a large chest is not fun it is very painful in my back and shoulders. I was beginning to be restricted from activities I used to be able to do. For example I had to quit volleyball and softball due to my large chest. The only sports left was water polo and swimming but this year I could barely compete in that as well. And talk about a backpack or purse, the neck and shoulder pain I went through was crazy. Then I knew I was ready to get a breast reduction from all the restrictions and pain, I had pain from a bra strap. My mom has been suggesting a breast reduction for a while but I never want to have it done it was scary to me and I didn’t think I had that big of a chest. But once I was struggling to swim and seeing pictures of me I decided it was time. This achievement was not technically this semester, but the recovery was. I had the surgery done during christmas break. Looking back I am so happy I had it done even with the pain of the recovery but the no pain after I was recovered was worth it. There was even a bonus I could actually buy clothes that I wanted. If you’re thinking about getting a breast reduction do it. Here are some tips if you want to get it done, 1) do not google the surgery but do watch you tube videos of people’s journeys 2) it is not scary 3) recovery is painful 4) you get back on your feet fast 5) take the painkillers it helps to sleep. All of this will make all the difference and this was my greatest achievement of this semester what was your’s?
Life is a difficult thing and I have not had it easy in anyway, many people do not see the struggles that have made me who I am and how I have gotten where I am today. With that said I would not change a thing in the way I have gone through life. Sometimes life sucks but it’s what you do with it that matters. I have talked about being Dyslexic which is a huge part of my life but since I have already talked about being dyslexic I am going to talk about the one person who has fought for me and always believed in me. That person is my Mom, she is my inspiration. My Mom is also dyslexic she is not as sever as me but it is still there and she went through all of schools and grad school without knowing she is dyslexic until I was diagnosed. That day forward she has fought for me to get the right help without dumming the work down. Dyslexia does not mean you are stupid we are actually very intelligent but takes a while to to read or write. Would you say that Albert Einstein is stupid just because he was dyslexic, no he was the innovator in math. My Mom knew that she knew I was intelligent and I need the tools to help me show what I know, even if the school system didn’t want to acknowledge the word dyslexia or say that I was lazy. She fought back even if we had to fight every year until Junior year in High school. Then we took another path a path that is better for me and for being Dyslexic that is going to Sinclair instead of High school. My Mom fought for this and we won. Even with her great deal of fighting for me that is not the only reason I look up to her. I look up to her because no matter how many times she fails she is still doing her dream of being an artist and running her own businesses. She quit her job and started something she believed in and work hard to make it successful. She is still working and will always keep failing and succeeding to make her dream true. That is why she is my inspiration.
Project management is my true calling in life. I help my run her business from the start-up. I was working 12 hour days to open up her new store and even though I was working every day all day I was never tired, I was excited to go the next day. After we open I got bored maintains the business with my mom. I relieved I love to open and plan business not maintaining the business. That is what project management is so great, they work on a project for 6 moths or longer. I am also very good at business math and figuring out how to calculate products. That is why I want to be a project management. I try to keep busy and keep everything in order at my moms business. I also manage projects for my mother and her business. I enjoy my work but I would love to become a project manager.
Spring is finally here! In in Ohio it could not be colder. Even though I hate the snow its even closer to summer and senior year. I can’t wait for summer to come. But of course I do not want to miss out on all the cool things in spring like, my beat on march madness bracket, or spending time with family on Easter. Don’t forget all the wonderful flowers blooming. Spring is not my favorite season, but it goes by fast with a lot happening. Don’t forget one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s day. My Family is very Irish and Scottish. We cook all sorts of different authentic meals and always wear green on St. Patrick’s day. I am the tallest in the family of little leprechauns. My family is very into their history and heritage which is cool. My great great grandfather came to america as a stow away from Ireland and became a very well-known Captain of a ship. I think this is really cool and knowing where I came from is very cool. Another cool this that we found is that we are black Irish because we have dark hair and parts of my family have darker skin tones. Black Irish is a Spanish Irish when Spain settled their. St. Patrick’s day for my family is fun and a celebration of our history. So it’s great that spring is here with all that is happening and everything that is coming too.
Life always is crazy but everyone has that one thing to focus on. For me it is going to Florida, for my last two years of college. I love Sinclair but I would like to have the living on campus experience. My parents also want me to have a four-year degree. If it was my choice I wouldn’t be going to college, but I found out that’s not an option. So I decided if I have to go to school I’m going to go where I want to. The college I want to go to is Florida Atlantic University and it is everything I want in a school. The one problem is out-of-state is expensive and getting in-sate tuition is what I’m focusing on. My goal is to get my residency in Florida. There are many different things I need for example I need to have family ties which I do. My two Aunts and Uncle live In the city’s near FAU. They are really excited for me to come down to go to school there. Another thing I need is to have a Florida licence and registrar to vote in Florida. My Dad is taking me down to Florida this summer to get my licence and registar to vote and I’m excited to have this opportunity. The Finnal and hardest is I need to be living in Florida for a year not enrolled in a college. This is the most difficult because I do not want to take a year off. So that is up in the air I might go down next spring or find away around this. Going to Florida is the goal but if it doesn’t work I will finnish up at University of Cincinnati. I do hope it all works out that I can go to FAU for the rest of college.
With the happy holiday of Valentine’s Day it is hard not to think about who you love. When I think about who I truly love, I think about why I love each person.Before I explain these person I love, I want to answer the question what is love to me? Love to me is when no matter what they do, I will still care about them and forgive them. For me family is huge, for sure I might get mad or frustrated but I love them. The reason I love each family member is that each person gives me a different role model and reason. I also learn from each person I love. Not like that the give me lessons that the way they go about life. I also can learn from the way they carry themselves. As that is said I do not love every family member do to many reasons that can not be fixed. Everyone has these people sometime in their life if it is a grandparent or parent, even a friend. Moving on since that this should be a cheerful holiday. Many people have their significant other that they love. I have a great example with my parents. Who have a not perfect but true loving relationship. I have never experienced love in that way yet, but I have some time. Tell those people who you love why you love them. It will make their day especially on this happy holiday. Happy Valentine’s Day!
