WHAT HAS V BEEN UP TO?

Saturday, July 14, 2018



HIDING FROM THE SUN// I like big clouds that threaten to spill rain and air that's that forms goosebumps on my skin. To me, that kind of weather is more exciting than rays that abuse your skin and sweat that lingers. SO, THIS SUMMER YOU'LL FIND ME DOING ACTIVITIES THAT WILL KEEP ME OUT OF THE SUN. I've will be playing danger zone. Shade- safe. Sun- not safe.

WORKING//
I work as a gym facility monitor at my college. The job entails making sure the people who come to lift are safe, helping them when they get hurt, cleaning machines, and occasionally helping monitor special events. I'm pretty psyched to have an excuse to sit in an air-conditioned gym. I had the chance to work a dance try out even for our local basketball teams dancers. It was such an inspirational experience to see so many dancers chasing after their dreams.

SUMMER TERM// I'm taking classes this summer because I need more to do than sitting around waiting for something new to happen. I am taking sociology of aging online which sounds like a super fun class besides the fact that it's online. And another Health and PE class. With the degree I am going into, exercise science, it requires that I take many wellness-related classes so that I may be prepared for the job I decide to go into.


SPENDING TIME WITH GRANDPA//My grandpa came to visit with his significate other. I spent a lot of time in his presence going to places that all visiting family must go to. Like the Willamette gorge and the Oregon Zoo two of the most touristy places in Oregon. It was great spending some time with him.  


WRITING//I have big writing plans for the summer! Nothing is outlined or set in stone but I am making progress in my journal and working on little mini projects for myself. I am going to be making more time for writing soon because school and work have been the priority for the last three weeks.

PRACTICING HANDSTANDS + FRONT WALKOVERS//This one is a little scary. Not the handstands but the front walkovers. I have been practicing these two skills because I want to learn things that typically 21-year-olds think it's too late to learn. I often times think of smaller kids being able to learn skills like that but a few months ago when I did a really ugly front walk over I realized that age doesn't need to stop me from gaining new skills like that.

PUTTING ALL BLOG POSTS INTO A WORD DOCUMENT// This project was a priority of mine. I wanted to put ALL blog posts from when I started blogging in 2013 to about April 2018 in a word document. It was a lot of copying and pasting, listening to music, coffee, and hand cramps. The project took me several tedious hours to complete. I now have 240 pages of words in a google doc that I want to print, hole punch, and put in a binder. I loved reading through the comments from posts past. I think that's what made this project a slow process.

  1. Hi V! I'm finishing up my summer classes like only 3 days left and I will be DONE with summer classes period! I'm really excited! this is a BIG DEAL to me! I have a 20 day break, or more like it, a grace period, before my next semester stats, which Is gonna be heavy. I also may get my license to commercially apply pesticides if I finish one of my courses next semester. Goodbye Bugs! Anyways, both me and my brother have been taking odd jobs from relatives, and I plan on trying to find work, once again, when fall starts. My brother has become my aunt and uncle's babysitter/ nanny/house helper for the summer, and I have been off and on helping my g'pa with his job. Good pay but only off and on short term jobs. But it has been a awesome summer. And I was wondering what happened to you. I am VERY GLAD you are ok!

(I am kind of regretting taking summer classes, while everyone is having fun I am studying.) Your jobs seem like they will be fun! Have a wonderful summer! Keep me updated on how everything goes.

    1. I have been! I have been trying to be a little more present on their story wise since you have mentioned it. I've been feeling a little distance with IG.

  8. You've been super productive this summer, I'm jealous! I've been wanting to take extra classes, but it's just really hard to do because a limited number of them have online components. Also, spending time writing and with family is the best.

  10. You put literally all your blog post into a document??? That would take forever, but it's SUCH a cool idea! I'm the exact opposite when it comes to the sun - I can't get enough of it! XD I can't wait to hear all about your writing projects. <3

    1. DO IT! I was thinking about it for a really long time before I did it. The only think I wish I could have transferred were the comments but everyone's lovely words will always stick with me. Have a wonderful weekend!
