HOT-tober!

This is Leandro Maeder. He’s a model and he’s on my blog for no reason at all. Jesus…help me.

Oh, Leandro.

Pardon my drooling.

My GOODNESS. Okay, I need a moment…

Anyway, Leandro has nothing to do with what my entry is about. (Except for maybe that I still have an eye for beautiful men). Haha

Some of you have been wondering what’s been going on in my life so here’s a little update:

I’ve been nearly drowning in schoolwork and this semester has proven to be quite challenging. I haven’t been going out quite as much as I’d like, but I guess partying doesn’t exactly help when you’re trying to get good grades and I’m trying this thing where I’m being responsible. We’ll see how this plays out.

I’ve also been working quite a bit. It’s been back and forth with hours at work, so one week I’ll be at the store every day and others I might not be there for 5 days, so I guess I try and make the best of it. For now, I guess it works; my focus is school and getting everything I need done.

I’ve been active but I need to crank my fitness into high gear. I need to get my Fergie on. (I be up in the gym just working on my fitness). Yoga completely kicks my ass…and I love it. Friends, I have been contemplating, dare I say…running? I absolutely detest running/jogging/walking in general, but I know it would be a good idea considering my fitness goals. Ugh. Who wants to join me? Woo. Hoo.

All in all, I’ve been busy as usual and working out some aspects of my life I’m not satisfied. This is definitely a time for change and so far it’s proven to be rewarding. Taking positive steps and making hard decisions will pay off later on.

That’s all for now, kids. Take care. Oh, and remember: Never settle for anything less than the best. I know I don’t. 😉

The Phoenix Effect

So I think it’s okay to talk about my life and what’s going on. I find that sometimes people can relate. Plus, for some reason people want to know what’s going on in my life, so maybe this will be a good way to keep up with me.

I’ve been missing my friends lately. My friend Alex moved to Long Beach and started working for MTV and last week was in Tahoe so it was nice to finally meet up after his trip. My friend Jessica finally came back from Baja California where her family has a house on the beach. She definitely deserved a vacation after a year of student teaching at a high school. Although we haven’t gotten together yet, I’m excited she’s back. I also haven’t seen my friend Carmen. Although she hasn’t gone out of town, we just haven’t been able to get together yet. I’m glad I’ve been able to enjoy summer and still go out thanks to my friend Tony. We’ve gone out dancing and drinking quite a bit this week and thankfully so. Summer’s about having fun and it’s always been a time to take a break from school and the stresses that come with the rest of the year.

So, on a more personal note, I feel like something’s happening. I call it the Phoenix Effect. It’s when I feel like I’m changing or evolving. It usually happens when I’ve grown weary or tired of a situation or of my lifestyle. I feel like my former self begins to slowly break down and eventually I face the things that have been wearing me down. This has happened a few times in my lifetime. Usually the “rebirth” is a very positive experience where I’m reenergized and gain focus and perspective on things I want in life and come back to the basics of what’s important in life.

I’m not sure what all the changes will be, but I can certainly tell what are some of the things that have worn me down. It’s time for change. It’s about becoming a better version of myself. It will be a time for growth. It’s an opportunity to get myself together and finally make some real progress. I can already tell it will be a big change and it will affect every aspect of my life. I guess you could say I’m entering the next chapter of my life. I think people usually say that on their birthday or at the end of the year, but for me it’s now.

I can’t be certain what will come, but I’m sure I will be prepared for whatever’s in store. I will rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
