Trying-new-things~

“When I got to high school, it was different from what I expected, kids were segregated and fought amongst their different groups. Also, since I wasn’t getting good grades, I felt that I wouldn’t achieve any positive result for attending that school. So I really really really thought hard and cried about it and was like ‘Mom, I am going to drop out of school and next year I will go to a private institution for a year and get into college that way’ and I left school my Sophomore year. So for a semester, I took some time off and at the beginning of this year I signed up for the private institution and last month I took the college entrance exam.“
“Have you ever regretted dropping out of school?”
“No, never. I hung out a lot, learned how to bake bread while working part-time at a bakery, and went to computer school as well. Personally, I think it was better for me to try new things than to just waste time in school. I am a jealous person so I like to be ahead of others and if I wait to take the college entrance exam at the same time as other students who are still in school, then when we are at age 20, I would be at the same level as they are.”
“Did you ever think you would fall behind because you dropped out?”
“Oh right, I didn’t.. Why didn’t I? Since I was very young I always thought, ‘My life will be a success,’ so maybe that’s why I hadn’t ever thought I would fall behind.”

“고등학교에 갔더니 제 생각과는 너무 다르고 애들은 서로 편을 갈라 싸우더라구요. 게다가 제가 공부를 그렇게 잘하지 않았어서 그 학교를 계속 다니면 별로 좋은 결과를 얻을 것 같지 않았어요. 그래서 울면서 진짜 진짜 진짜 고민 많이 하며 힘들게 생각한 후에 ‘엄마, 나는 자퇴하고 내년에 재수학원에 가서 1년동안 공부하고 대학갈 거야’ 라고 말하고 고1때 자퇴를 했어요. 그리고는 반년 놀고 올해 초에 재수학원에 들어가서 이번에 수능을 봤어요.”
“자퇴한 거를 후회한 적이 있나요?”
“아니요, 한번도 안했어요. 놀기도 열심히 놀고 빵집에서 알바하면서 빵 만드는 것도 배우고 컴퓨터학원도 다녔거든요. 저한텐 학교에서 그냥 그렇게 시간을 보내는 것 보다는 어릴 때 이것저것 배워보는게 더 좋았다고 생각해요. 그리고 제가 원래 좀 질투심이 많아서 남들보다 더 앞에 있고 싶은데, 자퇴 안 한 애들이랑 같은 해에 수능을 보면 나중에 20살이 되었을 때 제가 그들과 똑같은 선에 있는 거잖아요.”
“자퇴하면서 뒤쳐질 수도 있단 생각이 든 적은 없었나요?”
“아 그러게요.. 왜 안했지? 진짜 어렸을 적부터 ‘내 인생 성공할거야’ 라는 생각을 해와서 그런지 뒤쳐질 거란 생각은 안 했었네요.”

Day 1 of Yoga with Adriene is done. She’s very personable and the time just flew by. My forearms were sore (I’m assuming from my yoga yesterday) but the flow was really great and helped calm some of my anxiety and frustration from the day.

Thank you to @thosewhoearnit and everyone who brought it up. I think this is what I need and it opened my eyes up to trying new things.

Her mantra for the day “I Accept” is something I need to work on as well.

I accept my body as it is because it is strong and flexible and beautiful. I can carry my kids. I can run short distances. I can haul chicken feed and hay bales. I am curvy and I have muscles.

I accept all of my abilities as they are because I have learned how to do them all over the years. I have learned how to crochet and decorate cakes and to balance bank statements and process accurate payroll. I have learned how to cook and bake and how to take care of children.

I accept my creativity as it is now. I am a beginner in some things and an intermediate in others. I have lots left to learn and that is exciting to me. The things I create are beautiful.

I accept my knowledge as it is now. I know so many things. I know the ratios of the different types of feed to mix foe the chickens. I know the names of my kids favorite characters. I know songs and movie quotes. I know the product code numbers of hundreds and maybe even thousands of electrical items. I know important birthdays and phone numbers.

I accept my victories that I have made no matter what. I have graduated with a bachelor degree. I have lost a lot of weight twice. I have run 2 5k races. I have brought 2 lives into this world. I have made countless of genuine relationships. I have helped build a home. I have helped bring in crop and saved calves and hunted big game.

I accept my life as it is now. Busy. Loud. Frustrating. I am needed. I am a parent to 2 small children and a farm wife and an employee. I have a beautiful home in a wonderful country and food on our table. If all I have to complain about is that I can’t lose these 40 to 50 lbs as easily or that I don’t have as much time to read or crochet, then I have very little to complain about. I am blessed.

Why the Signs are Single

Aries: Too busy living life to the fullest to care about romance

Taurus: They got everything they need. Love isn’t something they want at the moment.

Gemini: They can adapt to many things, but romance isn’t one of them.

Cancer: Don’t know how to deal with the feelings of love

Leo: Makes significant other look irrelevant

Virgo: Makes significant other look dumb

Libra: They aren’t sure if they are in love or not

Scorpio: They just don’t care

Sagittarius: Wants to try new things, but love holds them back

Capricorn: Have more important things to do

Aquarius: Their obsessions and fandoms are way more important

Pisces: They are worried they might be hurt in a relationship, so they aren’t willing to involve themselves in romance in general

Some news: I’ve joined First Look Media and we’re relaunching The Nib this year as a daily publication, next to outlets like The Intercept. Excited to have a second go at this. We’ll be pulling the team back together, trying some new things, making forays into animation, and generally publishing a ton of great comics once again.

Hot freaking damn *__* New Mercy skins for Overwatch are really cool! Idk whats wrong with me, but my happiness and productivity with cosplay is deteriorating since my Blizzcon hype died down. Do I need a new project? I honestly cant tell. Im trying new things and more sewing with Kylo Ren and Jaina Proudmoore (RIP my progress on her right now) but it just doesn’t seem to cut it. I don’t feel fullfilled and Im unimpressed with everything. Worbla seems like one of the only things people care about and want to see, and I haven’t made a full Worbla armour set in a year. 👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌 I cosplay for myself and just do costumes n characters that resonate with me, but something is not clicking. #overwatch

I used 18 eggs in one night

I’m exhausted and yet I still want to keep baking and trying out new things. Last week I held a bake sale at my med school to benefit the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America. My classmates blew me away; they bought almost everything I had made for the first day so I had to go home and spend the rest of the night making more! 

I learned a lot about baking (yes, you actually have to count your strokes with macarons, that’s why my shells cracked) and fundraising (having a card reader was 110% worth it - people would hand us their card and have us charge $10 and only take $2 worth of stuff) and all in all it was amazing. My friends and I raised over $600. 

I baked: 

2 dozen Pinwheel Butter Cookies


4 Loaves of Glazed Lemon Blueberry Bread 

1 Ooey Gooey Butter Cake 

5 dozen Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies 

 7 dozen Mocha Macarons 

And: 1 Double Berry Dump Cake, 2 pans of Pine Bark, and Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies (that I didn’t take many photos of)

Hey @taylorswift, it’s Stormie!!
Just wanted to give you a little update on my life.
I turned sixteen not too long ago!! I’m growing up and it’s lowkey terrifying but also really exciting. All my life I’ve always loved writing and I’ve been posting my poems and such on here, Twitter, INSTA, etc. I never thought I’d be brace enough to but I finally decided to do it and I’ve gotten good feedback on it so that’s good. :) I’m happier than I’ve ever been. Surrounding myself with amazing people, trying to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. Thank you for everything. For all the advice, for your music, for being YOU. Hope all is well with you and you’re happy and laughing a ton.

And on that note, I’m going to go get a milkshake. Love youuuu.

Transformation Tuesday! After kicking my own butt with an intense workout, a round of hip hop yoga, taking my girl @rksolidnyc bootcamp class, and then teaching my own right after, I’m officially pooped. You want bug results, you have to make big changes. A quick change only means a quick trip back to your old body. Being in shape isn’t a trend, it’s a lifestyle that should be a part of your mind, body and soul yearly routine from January to January. Try new things, get out of your comfort zone and live the life you always dreamed of in the healthiest body you ever imagined! #tt #transformationtuesday #fit #fitness #goals (at Barry’s Bootcamp NYC)

anonymous asked:

When choosing to DATE OR HAVE SEX with someone, what personal standards do you look for?

Good question. Since I know that long-term relationships could lead to marriage, I look at things like this: Now that I’m older, I look at how he approaches me - is it in a flirtatious way or a respectful way. Then I listen to what type of woman that HE says he wants before I see if he’s what I’m interested in. I do this because he could have the few things I seek but look for something I’m not, therefore I wouldn’t even need to waste our time because I know exactly who I am, you know what I mean? I’m just a chilled person -  In order for me to date someone we had to have already known each other prior to dating. I like someone who likes travelling, being adventurous & trying new things out without being afraid. I don’t really ask for much, as in I’m not expecting him to have a big car or be rich. I think it’s all about the inner you, for me personality plays an important role in finding your future someone. I would want him to be religious and sticks to his religion, knowing well that he is alive only because of Allah (Our Creator). However, I do not believe in sex before marriage but as far as relationships go, I’d want someone who is independent with an amazing personality. x

im so mad!! I just went to whole foods and got the brown rice they always have in the rice cooker and there was oil in it!! I got it for dinner and got some for lunch tomorrow! and I really don't feel like making a new lunch

You can return it!  We do that stuff all the time, especially if we don’t like how it tastes.  The best part about Whole Foods is they want you to be 100% happy with your purchase so you’ll keep trying new things.  They totally understand and will hook you up!
