First Day at SDSU

So my first day at SDSU, to say the least, left me sleepless LOL

Idk why but I just couldn’t fathom that I was still at this school, it feels so unreal. My roommates (so far) are the sweetest and we all have similar habits. We like wake up and gym at the same time, but they’re quiet (which is nice).

The campus is gorgeous! I live in the farthest apartments and the walk to campus is a trek, but the amazing view makes the walk almost tolerable.

I’m still trying to figure out about the whole sorority thing, and so far I talked about joining one of the sororities with my roommate, but no commitments yet!

Ugh college is cool and I guess I’m excited for when class actually start!

Mothers, Daughters, and Sisters Unite as Women

Amazing Group of Women!
Amazing Group of Women!

A couple week ago, I was given the opportunity to photograph a Bodypump session at this Nike Event.

Why was this event an opportunity?

To be honest, when I got the call that I could be the photographer for the event, I was so excited because I wanted to meet new people and to get more material for my blog LOL. However, it became so much more than that when I started to get to know the girls better.

As women it’s important that we empower each other, to always support one another when any of us fall, and to push through whatever bull crap haters give us. Nowadays there is so much competition amongst women based on menial things such as beauty, wealth, popularity, etc. We have forgotten that connection that relates mother to daughter, mother to wife, and mother to sister. None of us were born without a mother, which makes women so fricken awesome!

Anyways, this Nike Event introduced me to a group of women who not only supported each other but also tested each other in order to reach full potential. Kisha, who is an instructor I have had the privilege to work with, is always so full of energy and spirit! Watching her bring a group of women together who have never met each other before and help them form a bond is truly amazing. She keeps girls motivated to actually want to do something as crazy as “working out” and “getting fit!” She has inspired me to try and help young girls by encouraging them to not take themselves for granted and truly love who they are.

“You are pretty and you are worth it!”

There are many ways that women and girls can come together and connect (Kisha’s was just one that I thought was really fun!). Comment down below and tell me what you would do to get women and girls to network and support each other 🙂

Thanks you!

Not All Relationships Are Romantic…

I don’t know how much I have to tell her, but I miss her so much and I’m so scared what would happen if I ever see her again.

Right now I’m not thinking about the romantic boyfriend/girlfriend kind of relationship problems, but the friendship type. This has been bothering me so much lately and I just feel like senior year I have experienced so many lost friendships. I know it just may be because people drift apart whenever they lose interest in being friends with a person, but that’s not justifiable. I just think that real friends don’t drift apart. Some people that I’ve known throughout the years don’t even look at me when I smile at them or they look always agitated whenever I walk by. I mean, I haven’t done anything bad and I don’t smell, so it’s confusing to realize that the people you once got along with before suddenly turn on you and make you feel small. I get so scared.

I used to be really great friends with this one girl and everything was going fine until one day she told me that she didn’t want to be friends with me anymore. I don’t know how people do that so easily, because when that happened I practically begged to earn my friendship back with her and I didn’t understand after everything we have been through together, she just decided to cut ties with me. It hurts; it’s been about a year and she still hasn’t given me any sign to be friends with me again and that hurts me the most.

I know that for me personally, I don’t dislike anyone yet I hate the eerie feeling of a friend that also treats you like an enemy. I guess I just like it when I don’t always have to be the one to come up and be friendly with friend I haven’t seen a while. Sometimes I’d like to know if that friend cares about me as well. But oh well friends aren’t everything, but all I’m saying is that high school friends are so confusing.
