A Much Needed Update

I honestly can't remember when was the last time I actually blogged. I apologize for the lack of blogging here. I have been blogging about CBS' Big Brother for CBS 62 Detroit. Which has been an incredible experience to say the least! I've learned so much from my time blogging about Big Brother for the local station. It's been a great and I think I've gotten good (and bad) reviews from it! I take it all in stride.
-------------------------------------

I went to my second wedding. It was about two years ago when I went to my first one as an adult for my friends. So surreal, but very much happy for Ray & Lindsay!
Lindsay, Ray & I
The Fraternity Brothers with Ray
I spent a week back in Colorado for the wedding, relax and have a vacation so to speak. I enjoyed catching up with friends and Fraternity brothers.

Climbed a Mountain and my first 14er
During my last day in Colorado, I decided to go with some of my fraternity brothers to climb a mountain. It was an amazing and challenging climb. Having never climbed a "14er" I was definitely up for the challenge! I had a little bit of altitude sickness it didn't stop me from climbing to the top. Fun Fact, I have a fear of heights, so climbing this mountain was somewhat conquering the fear. We'll see if I climb another 14er in the future, but for now I at least climbed one!

----------------------------------------------

While on the flight to Colorado, I got a phone call from the New Theatre Project in Ypsilanti. I had recently went to a callback for their first show of the season and I was selected to be in the show! I of course accepted and was so thankful to be cast! I'm looking forward to the show. More details in another blog later this month.

Even though I haven't blogged I've been doing a lot. Hopefully soon (or with self motivation) I'll update again maybe the end of this week or next week!

Late night and oversleeping

Never a great combo to do!

I was late for work today and felt horrible! It's very out of character of me to be late. I really strive to do my best as well as arrive in a timely manner. All in all I've been working two jobs and it's starting to weigh on me heavily. I enjoy both jobs however I really need to have some time for like a day off. But with the two jobs comes an income which is very helpful. So I really can't complain, since I have two jobs and there are people without jobs trying to get an income for their family or themselves.

Randomly at one of my jobs a co-worker (whom now would consider a friend) said to me I'm way to optimistic and cheerful. Which I was very flattered that they said that but I know I definitely can be a downer and pessimistic. However I've learned that if you're not enjoying what you're doing, then why even do it? Plus if you smile enough you'll actually smile...right? hahahaha

So September is here. As mentioned I've got my list of goals I want to do and I'm going to do them. I've already worked out once this month, but really want to try and work out daily. Yet that will depend on my schedule of working as well as having a car to drive. Which really brings me to having to do some research on whether or not I want to wait or get a car. Anyways, after the first workout definitely felt it the next day, but if felt good to be getting into a routine of working out. Let's hope I gain some muscle mass and some weight...hahaha My weigh in starting for this month is 134. We'll see how this goes for the month!

Later this month is my GRE and I'm continuing studying for it. I hopefully will know which schools I've narrowed down to send my scores to. It's becoming a reality that I'm doing it and I'm getting excited about it.

Right before my GRE I shall be taking a road trip with my friend Courtney to go down to one of her friend's wedding in Tennessee. Which will be fun because it's a ROAD TRIP and I'll be getting to see along the way my friends Michael and Kat. Who were at ITF 2011 this year. So it's a mini reunion!

September bring it!

Sore

For some odd reason by throat feels sore, my lower back and thighs are sore too. It's kinda ridiculous. I'm not try to complain but literally all day I've been sore and have had the most unpleasant face. Granted I also didn't get much sleep either and I just decided to sleep in Wilson as oppose to walking an additional block to my room so slept in the lounge before my desk shift, but I still tried to stay positive.

This day has felt really, really, REALLY LONG! Started at 6am working the desk, then went to do some RA interviews and after that had a couple of meetings. Then lunch break which then continued with one final RA interview for the day. Then I psuedo had some time off, however I realized I still needed to purchase a lift ticket and check out snowboarding equipment. I got to see a friend I haven't seen in a few weeks and chatted while I purchased my lift ticket at the store. Then went to the rec center to pick up the snowboarding equipment. Apparently the rec center was having a snowboarding event this weekend and the choices were slim and I got the short end of the selections. But again staying positive..

Walked all of my equipment I checked out back to my room, which was on Central campus, when I was in West. I know I'm complaining about being sore, but seriously....I feel out of shape. Doing swing movements in Modern II was strenuous I guess because I'm sore from that.

Anyways I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. Will be going to Copper Mountain with some of my Fraternity brothers. hopefully I'll have the patience and determination to get snowboarding down. Plus it'll be fun either way! First time snowboarding in the Rocky Mountains, hopefully it won't be my last!
