So I have been trying to write this blog for a few weeks now, and I finally feel like sitting down and discussing dreams, aspirations, successes, and failures.
For those of you who may not know, I am a full- time college student studying Music . Fall semester 2012 was no walk in the park for me! I had 10 classes with 18 hrs. and a 40 hour Internship to fill. I am the kind of person that does not give up, and I will push myself to the breaking point! Ok, so I reached it this time! I ended up dropping a class because it was simply too much, and I struggled to get through my Theory classes, BUT I MADE IT! I did not make the Deans List this year as I usually do, but that is OK. I was pushed to my limits, but I made it through!
This is totally how my brain felt all semester!!
Now, the downside..... I started out pretty strong, but by the time that productions started, and Finals hit (ALL AT ONCE), well... I wasn't so tough anymore. I ended up, getting a REALLY bad sinus infection that completely wrecked my voice jury, AND I bombed two Finals. I also TOTALLY stopped working out, and my eating was very erratic. This is the kind of stress that always messes up my healthy lifestyle.
Yea, this was pretty much me!
I shall say.. THIS IS TRUE!
Coincidence? I THINK NOT!
So my semester ended..... NOW WHAT? BREAK TIME WHOO HOO!
This was TOTALLY me!!
i had a wonderful Christmas and New Year spending time with family and my hubby, and decided to sit down and plan out my New Year Goals- NOT resolutions!
So, with all of this being said, and the sheer fact that I survived and passed all my classes, with only a minor drop in my GPA, and a slight weight gain is AWESOME! GO ME!
Now without any further delay, here are my 2013 Goals!!
(1) To keep it simple,(Well that's pretty much the answer) I am toning things down A LOT!
I am taking a lot less hours (currently 8 classes and 12 credits).
(2) I will exercise at least 10 minutes a day (so far I've made 6)!!!
(3) I will track my food DAILY (another thing I stopped doing)- so far so good!
(4) I will keep a calendar. so that I do not fall behind- DONE
(5) I will spend more time with family and friends when I can.
(6) I will learn to say NO!
(7) i will stay on Sparkpeople more than Facebook (that is a hard one)- So far, I'm doing well.
Now for the biggy!
(8) I will continue my healthy lifestyle, and reach my GOAL this year!!!
Finding Balance, is normally an issue for me, but I knew I can do it. I have done some pretty amazing things this year, like publish a Music Review on a Music News website, and have that same Review published to the Artists website! Whoo Hoo! I attended a Record Label Party here in Nashville, and have been invited to more!Now more exciting things are coming down the pipe, and I am SO excited!!!!
Yes.... I totally have a thing for cats!!!!
Here are some recap pics for the year!!
Yea.. I am a BIG goof! This was my outfit that I had to wear for our concert at the War Memorial Venue here in Nashville! It was so much FUN!!!
This is me and the love of my life and husband for nearly 7 years!
