College/life update again…

Hey guys,

Again will start off by saying it’s been a while I haven’t talked to you guys. Work and school and actually having a life are taking over.

Let’s start off talking about school. As you guys know, I started college again in August 2016 in Early Childhood Education. I am in my second semester now and currently in mid terms and omg… can I say… I am going insane… Soooooo much studying to do in such a small amount of time.

Work is great and all.I am on march break since the children are on march break. So a little relaxation from not working this week. I am happy because of that but also sad because I need money… πŸ˜₯

Love life is amazing. My boyfriend and I are still together πŸ™‚ I love him so much! ❀

Family still the same healthy and loving.

Friends are the same as well… just a little less getting to see them since we are all older and in school and work. Opposite schedules suck!

BTW: I am still debating on starting a YouTube channel. Should I? If so do I daily vlog or do other videos?

Anyways again a little update on how my life is going.. I guess..

How is your life going? See you next time… πŸ™‚

Photography and update

Hey guys,

Sorry I haven’t been posting. Like I said in my other post, I work everyday and have school everyday so after the day is done, I am exhausted. But, on that note, I will hopefully be posting at least once a week or twice a month. I’ll try my hardest. Nothing promised 😦

It’s been forever I’ve always loved taking pictures of things and people professionally. I can’t say I am a professional because I haven’t taken any classes so I don’t have a degree in photography which sucks, but I am already doing a DEC right now as you guys already know in early childhood education so I can’t do photography in addition sadly.

Anyways that isn’t stopping me to pursue my dreams of taking pictures. I mean I don’t know if I’ll become a photographer because that wasn’t on my list (I love children a little more) but I can do this as something on the side.

I guess I’ll have to self teach myself. I mean I don’t mind, I just would like some guidance. If any of you are photographers please let me know.

I would also like to know what program anyone uses for free to edit the photos.

I’m very excited to learn and take pictures. The only thing I am nervous about in this whole process is the editing part. Like I said before, I don’t have any lessons on anything about photography, so I hope it isn’t too complicated to self teach myself.

Hope everyone is doing well πŸ™‚ Hope to talk to you all soon πŸ™‚

Life update

Hey guys,

It feels like forever we haven’t talked. That is because I have school, work and trying to relax. On that note:

School is going good πŸ™‚ I’m loving it! As I have mentioned earlier, I am in Early Childhood Education. I am getting better grade than I thought I would get, which is awesome. I’m not complaining. At least I’m doing something right!!!

Work is work. I still work at Kumon centers. It has been 4 years and 3 months already I work at the same place πŸ™‚ I think my boss likes me lol πŸ˜›

Anyways, fall in Canada is here and it’s getting pretty cold. Time for some hot cocoa and warm pajamas and fluffy socks and slippers to keep us all warm! I kinda like Fall for that reason but I also hate it because I hate the cold. 😦

I can’t wait for Christmas. It is for sure my favorite holiday πŸ™‚

Hope everyone is doing well πŸ™‚ See you in my next blog post πŸ™‚

School & Work too much?

Hi guys,

I haven’t posted on here its been a while but I’ll tell you my reasons why.

  1. School- I have school every single day of the week from 8:30pm to about 2:30pm.
  2. Work- I work everyday of the week Monday to Friday from 3pm to about 8:45pm.

Now that you know how long my days are from waking up in the morning at 6:30am and leaving the house at 7:50am to going to school, full day of classes and not going home later but to work till about 8:45pm. Then, I get home around 9:30pm and eat supper, since I do not eat at work. After supper, I have to do homework and don’t go to bed until 11-12am. 😦

I had promised that I would let you guys know how I felt about school after my first week but next week it will be my third week so I’m a little late, sorry 😦 Just been very busy and getting myself organized and in a good daily routine πŸ™‚

I am in love with this program (Early Childhood Education) It is something that I am sure I want to do as soon as I can, which is after I graduate from this program in 3 years. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait. I can honestly say, I love my teachers, they are so helpful and kind. The students as well are very nice. It already seems like we are in a family. It makes sense because we are 30 students and have all the same classes at the same time everyday πŸ™‚

Hopefully, I can go through these next 13 weeks at school and work and not go crazy or get anxiety attacks like I had previously. 😦

Hope I can talk to you guys soon again πŸ™‚

Hope you all are having a fantastic back to school or back to another week of work. πŸ™‚Β 

School Supply Shopping

I always loved getting ready for school. I start college on August 22nd 2016. Today as I am writing this on August 15th, 2016, I have a week left of summer. I can’t believe I already start college again after a year of being off from school.

So here is a recap of my story as I already wrote a blog about it. Link is here if you haven’t read it yet…Β https://danceteacher18.wordpress.com/2016/04/07/vanier-early-childhood-education/

I have a degree in Social Science major in Child Studies since 2014. I can’t do anything with that. So, I’ve changed my plans of becoming a teacher to become a daycare educator at a daycare where we teach children their abc’s and 1.2.3’s.

Since I talked about this already, I’m going to write about getting my school supplies for this new adventure.

Even though I have 10000 schoolbags, I had to buy another one. I went out with a friend and she needed a bag. We found many at Walmart and then I stumbled across this one.14037522_10157428739415294_1677635116_o.jpgΒ I had to get it, it was beautiful.

I also bought duo-tangs since I don’t like binders, as I find they are way too big and heavy.14012684_10157428739520294_176477733_o.jpgΒ They are so nice and flashy.

I love color codding things, so each subject is a color.

With the duo-tangs I also bought copybooks, but they look more like note pads. I like them more as they are small and take less room in my school bag. As well as, they have more pages then the regular 80 page spiral copybooks. More pages but less weight is always best, so you don’t have to buy a lot of them. 14037559_10157428739835294_214853043_o.jpgThese should last me the whole semester. Thankfully, as I don’t like having 2 or 3 copybooks for one subject, it gets out of hand and unorganized.

I also got an organizer to put loose papers inside. By now you should have guessed that I am an organizer freak lol :P… but it is true! πŸ˜›Β 14001953_10157428739860294_1205380492_o.jpg

Here is to a new adventure! I am excited but a little nervous. Wish me luck! I will write a blog post after my first week and let you all know how it went. πŸ™‚

Question of the day: Was your favorite part of starting school getting school supplies? If not, how come? Was it because it meant summer was over?Β 

Hope you all had a fantastic summer 2016 πŸ™‚ I know I did πŸ˜€

Date Night <3

So last weekend, I wanted to bring my boyfriend somewhere special, romantic and somewhere we haven’t gone yet.

One of our friends told us about a lake we have near our house, so I decided that was a perfect spot. This lake was a free relaxing area where you could enjoy the beautiful nature, which is what we did. I’ll of course show you some pictures. πŸ™‚

We went on Saturday around 3pm and may I tell you this, it was a very hot day. I wore a romper and it still was very hot, over +30 degrees Celsius for sure. But, I really wanted to go, so we went anyways.

We had told each other, the next time we go there, we would go for a picnic as there were nice tables set out in front of the lake…which would be so romantic lol πŸ™‚ I regretted not bringing something that day, but it was cause we didn’t know if we were definitely going or not since it was so hot.

I think this is one of my new favorite places to go to for a relaxing day to think. πŸ™‚Β

Have you been somewhere that is nature friendly? If so where? Pictures?Β 

 

Quebec City mini vacation

Hi guys,

The past week was very interesting nonetheless. First, let me start off by saying it was my week back from vacation (didn’t go anywhere…my boss left to go to Mexico so he closed) so that was a hard Monday to start off my week.

The rest of the week was alright till we hit Thursday. Thursday July 28th, we were supposed to go to Super Aqua Club with my neighbor and my sister, but we cancelled on her. My father had told us the night before that he was going to Quebec City for the day so he asked us if we wanted to tag along. The drive was a long one but it was worth every minute. I’m telling you guys, it was beautiful. The only downside was the weather outside. It was not cooperative. It was +30 degrees Celsius. It was so hot, but as a refresher, we got ice cream at yes 11am. : )

I’ll attach some pictures here:

My father told me, someone destroyed this statue that Picasso made the week before we saw it. Why would someone do this??? Common guys!

We saw many other sculptures, here are a few more that we saw πŸ™‚

I had so much fun spending time with family that day. Even though we didn’t go somewhere tropical, we still had a blast.

Hope you guys are having or had an amazing summer 2016! πŸ™‚

Where have you gone this summer 2016? Did you have a lot of fun? Pictures?Β
