Goodbye College! Hello… Real World?

So guys, my college career is FINALLY coming to an end and boy am I pretty estatic about it!

At this point I have been in college for a little over 5 years–which means I have been in school (be it elementary, middle, and high school) for 17 years of my life… woah, saying that out loud makes it feel a bit more intense than I thought.

Being in school for that long you could say I’m very much looking forward to not having to go to class every single day. Or worry about paying for tuition, buying books, and even walking to class in the mornings.

Yeah, yeah, I know after I graduate it will be all “real world” adulating. Which means going to work everyday, paying for bills, and possibly buying a car……. or does it?

Everyone always asks me what my plan after I graduate is and friends I’m here to tell you, I don’t have a damn clue.

The only thing I’m sure of is that this girl needs a break! That’s right, an actual break!

That being said I have decided to travel to Costa Rica in the months after I graduate to become a certified yoga instructor. It is something I have wanted to do for a long time now I just haven’t had the time or opportunity–but come January I finally will!

I have gotten a lot of backlash from others, mainly family members with comments like, “You paid all of that money for college to go and become a yoga teacher?” Which is understandable if you only think inside the box (sorry family, I still love you). But for me it is a chance to experience something in a completely new place doing something I am passionate about.

And who knows maybe it could just be a side job in the future to help me de-stress from a busy work week. Orrr, maybe I’ll become an “Insta” famous yogi who just travels the world doing what she loves.

That’s the great/scary thing about the future–nobody knows what’s in store years, months, or even weeks from now. One things for certain though, I’m really looking forward to finding out!

 

 

Read More Books People!

We as a generation have become more and more acquainted with technology. Especially when it comes to watching movies rather than reading the books.

In high school I can remember teachers bringing out the movie because they didn’t think any of us would read the book (and for the most part they were right).

Here I’m going to list a few reasons as to why you need to read more books!

  1. The more you read the more knowledge you will have.

Reading a book, no matter what it may be can fill your mind with loads of information that was not previously there. It can also help retain more information. Especially when dealing with word knowledge and being able to comprehend more in depth thoughts.

2. Expansion of your vocabulary.

To go along with what was previously talked about, the more you read the more words you come in contact with. This in itself broadens your range on words that you know and relate to. Which in return allows you to be better spoken and keep up with conversations about a variety of topics and circumstances.

3. Improvement of your memory.

If you have ever read a really gripping novel then you know what it’s like to be completely immersed in a book. Which means you also know how well your memory comes back to you when refer to this “gripping” story. Reading more books helps one to better analyze the information they are taking in and put it into their own thoughts.

Everyone, go out and buy you a book. Read it, love it, live it.
