SuperCon Volunteer

These past few months have been weird…

I’ve had to move again for the 4th time in 2 years. I was placed on academic probation and denied my financial aid. I transitioned to part time because I thought I was going to continue going to school, leaving me broke and frustrated.

I’ve been trying to find a job these last months with no luck. I’ve been feeling hopeless and the future seems very unclear. Everyone says I should stay in school and “study something” but what if that “something” is not what I like?

Just-a-while-ago, I was stuck studying a career I didn’t enjoy. I ended up wasting two years of my life already. So now I’m left with the ultimate question that any new budding adult is asking themself…” what do you want to be in life?”

I’m in something I define as the worldy limbo. I’m not losing a job but I’m not gaining one either. I’m trying to find out what I’m good at and what I’m interested in and pursuing that. I’m re-visiting hobbies I enjoyed such as cooking/baking, anime, planning (event planner/volunteering), and budgeting (financial planning).

So I would like to mention that I am now a volunteer for the South Florida SuperCon!

This has become a spark of hope that maybe I’m transitioning out of limbo…..

 

 

How to Become a Grocery Master

The Financial Diet (TFD)  is a very fun and educational Youtube channel that gives you plenty of knowledge and ways to tackle-down everyday financial life.

 

My Additions:

Bring a List: Writing down what you have already decided you need helps you stay focused and prevents you from buying things you want… but don’t actually need.

Use Apps: Apps like Ibotta or Walmart Savings Catcher help you get money back on purchases. Snap a picture of your receipt and you are good to go!

Budget: Establishing a monthly budget (whether on paper or mentally) of what you think you should be spending on groceries, can help you stay in control of your spending. Try limiting the amount of times you have to go to the grocery store.

 

Please comment below on ways YOU master grocery shopping.

Life Goals (1/2) 2 min read

Image result for life goals gif

Everybody has dreams and aspirations they wish to achieve. But dreams aren’t concrete and sometimes they seem so far out of reach you lose any motivation or slight interest you had in them. Every year for the past couple of years, I have been creating New Year’s Goals for myself to complete. Every year I get 90% of that list completed.

Goals can be Big or Small. It’s okay to have small goals and it’s okay to be proud of those too. But don’t forget to push yourself and climb higher. Here is my list I created for this year:

  • Go to California in the summer
  • Go to the gym
  • Go back to school
  • Get a tattoo (go to tattoo fair in August 13)
  • Plan for my 21st birthday (las vegas, six flags, new york)
  • Go to a drive-in movie theater (valentine’s day)
  • Go to a lighthouse
  • Go horseback riding
  • Hang out with Mike’s family more often and have him hangout with mine
  • Cook more
  • Play Guitar
  • Paintball fighting with friends
  • Camping
  • Go to Key West
  • Have two jobs
  • Put contacts on
  • Get a new purse
  • Dye my hair
  • Get the humidifier/incense
  • New clothes
  • Participate in an escape room (mike’s birthday)
  • Get an xbox one ($300)
  • Invest

Be Proud of the Little Ones. As you can see, there is already a few I have completed. There are a couple goals that seem very “normal” but in reality they are “attainable”. The purpose is not to discourage yourself. Scratching an idea off your list is like removing it from your head and now you no longer have to place extra ENERGY or EFFORT in dwelling on it.

> In my relationship, I realized I find it satisfying to see my man get to something that we have been thinking of for a while. For instance, we have been talking about getting him new pants for work. When we finally got them, I felt happy because now we no longer felt that need to get it done and he got what he wanted.

30 Day Burger Challenge!

There is no excuse! You can pay $10 for a gym membership

I joined Planet Fitness right after New Years like anyone who has a New Year’s Resolution. But I am going to stay committed to being the best version of me. I’ll be going 4 days a week.

30 Day Burger Challenge

Okay so I’m doing something I call the “30 Day Burger Challenge” which basically means that I cannot have a burger for the whole month of January.

You guys should try it to! After a long day at work, I don’t blame you for wanting to go somewhere where there you can get access to a quick meal. Who wants to do home to cook? But if we also need to keep in mind that we need to take care of ourselves in order to keep doing the things we want to do.

 

What’s up with the recipes?

Well this blog is not only to empower me but to empower you as well.

Learning new things and being opened to more is my goal and is something that helps you become better. Whether you are male or female.

Never say you don’t have time to learn new things. It doesn’t take long at all.

I will post many things but don’t be weirder out by the recipes. Lol

Getting the most out of my Relationship Break

I have been having problems with my boyfriend and we came to an agreement yesterday that we needed a break.

Now what happens when your not suppose to talk to the only person you truly speak to everyday?

You find things to do and you have more me time. At least that is the conclusion I came too.

I am going to rebuild friendships and start new ones. After praying for days about God’s plans for me, I feel like I should be of help and I guess he has given me this opportunity to do it.

This break has also given me some “me” time. I can focus on what “I” want. For example, I’m planning on buying some stuff to make strawberry swiss cake (I’ll post the recipe soon). I also finally ordered the book “Tuesdays with Morrie”. I also know that God is with me an he loves me and I can have more me and Him time.
