Health and Fitness Instagram// My main account is becoming health and fitness account with awesome motivational and inspirational posts! The feed has taken me a while to build since it's a lot of work to take high-quality pictures and post them every day of the week with a thoughtful caption that one can learn from. BUT it's been a pleasure! The feed these days feels very me which is pleasing! 

May Sickness// The second week of May, I got sick with bronchitis! I didn't know I could get that but when one is under the stress of life and school you'll get what you weren't expecting. What was funny about this whole thing was that I had to get well naturally. I was allergic to the antibiotics so for a week I drank lots of water, zinc and vitamin C, rest, and watched movies. Thankfully, it was a speedy recovery! 

Kahlid Concert//My very first concert was checked off this month! I went to see Kahlid with my sister and her friends. I was lucky and met up with some of my friends too! The concert was so much fun! Nothing to fancy, but just right. Lot's of singing, yelling and wondering who Pretty Much was. 

Working// I started a new job about a month and a half ago. I am now a gym facilities monitor at the college I attend. Which in short means I watch out for peoples safety and make sure they get what they need when they do get hurt. I love my job! We have some exciting events coming up that I will be working at. A modest change from playing music for open rec basketball at my college. 

"Some might say you should live in the moment but how can you do that when you have a feeling buried in your soul reminding you of the fear, anxiousness, insanity, and hopelessness you felt in the interval span of a month... My heart feels like it's healing with each time it crashes against the interior of my ribcage."

"And I wonder which of his stories made him close his eyelids and lean his heavy body against the window of the train."

"I can't go back in time and talk to the souls I've come across but I can pray for them. I pray that God does immeasurable amounts of good in their lives."

1// Grandmas go to bed early. AND SO DO I! There isn't anything I love more than going to bed at 8:30 after a long day. THERE IS NO BETTER FEELING. This also means that Grandmas and I must stay home instead of going out with friends in order to go to bed that early. That's fine by me. I like my house. {This is the very reason my friends started calling me a grandma!} I'm Vanessa, I am also a grandma at heart. I can't wait to be an old lady.

2// We LOVE writing letters! I adore writing letters, it's one of my favorite grandma traits. I always feel like an old soul when I write letters because PEOPLE DON'T DO IT ANYMORE! I wish they did because it's so much fun writing letters back and forth instead of texting or emailing one another. I get as excited as a grandma would when she receives letters from her grandchildren who rarely ever write. (I was also that grandchild who barely sent letters to their grandma.)

3// Older folks complain about the younger generations. "What's wrong with these children?" My grandma would say. I would then roll my eyes and say, "I have no idea." As if I wasn't a part of THAT generation. There's something so comical about older people complaining about the younger generation. How they are rude and always on their phones. Also, why don't they talk?!?! The younger the generation the fewer communication skills they have. That right there is a problem. If I were to have kids I would raise them like I grew up. No internet just the woods and some walkie-talkies. I just went on a rant like a grandma would. I'm telling you it's what I do.

4// Grandma's wear colorful patterns. Ummm. 87 percent of the clothing I own has some kind of pattern to it. There's no use in wearing clothes with a solid color. It doesn't get attention. But what turns heads and makes me feel like a grandma is when I wear a patterned shirt with a wait for it... A PATTERNED SOMETHING ELSE. It's a magical thing.

5// They give unconditional love. This here is my favorite thing about grandmas. They give love no matter what. Although sometimes I can be a real downer about everything I feel that when it comes to people I can't help but love them. Even when they have said something that hurts me, or is upsetting to hear I won't hold a grudge. I will only love them more while hating that I can't be upset at them like a normal person would. BUT normal is boring, right.
