Loans Much?

Funny story of the day: I’ve always wanted a dog my whole entire life, but nagging anyone to get one for me was out of the question. My dad got my brother and I dish once from the store and we put it inside the tank. Of course, no one liked the fish except my dad who hates anything besides fish as a pet. They died 4 hours after we got them. They just floated in the tank. Sigh. My mom had to give them a proper burial since I  wouldn’t  touch them.  That’s the first and last pet I’ve ever owned. 

Hi, there. 

I thought the picture of the cute, smiling dog would get your attention. Welcome to my blog! If this is your first time here, my name is Stephanie and I am posting about what I’ve done today. I’m not an overly exciting person who goes on wold adventures, and I am not here to pose as someone who is nor am I going to write as if I am. 

If you’re interested in my average life then please keep reading and be sure to follow me on Instagram @stepheeliza! I’ll more than likely be uploading more snippets from my life there. 

This post isn’t anything particularly special other than the fact that I am writing about student loans. I withdrew one today. :/ I’m not super proud of it, but it is something almost every student has to do. Like I said I am not super smart, but I am a hard worker who is taking a summer school course and getting started on taking notes and arranging flashcards for my future science courses for this school year. Isn’t that just nerdy? Haha. I know.
Thankfully, the loan I applied for is something I have no penalty for paying off at any time so I will try and make small monthly payments, which are in reasonable range of what I can afford, so it will make some different in the future. There’s so many things I would love to afford but I’m not rich, so I can’t afford them. Given how the economy is now I will not be able to afford things for awhile. 

I’m actually quite tense at this moment. With the new healthcare bull being put into action, my parents jobs are in jeopardy. It’s really scary. Sometimes I wonder if I could do anything to help that would make a difference but I’m thinking/working on it. Do you ever feel that way? That you wish you were so much more or better or just something you are not to be where you want to be? 

In terms of my goals, I did make an Instagram like a blog so people can follow me and what I do. The purpose isn’t to show off or be fake, but it’s a way for me to be more positive and spread that somewhere else to inspire people or just be myself. Like I said before, you can follow me if you’d like! 🙂 

That’s all I have for today, guys. If you find anything interesting please show me and definitely let me know if you follow my blog/Instagram I will follow back!

Life Lessons

Grass isn’t always greener on the other side. 

The grass isn’t always green on the other side. 

When I say this, I mean it in the sense that you think other people are doing better than you. I want to remind you guys that what you see on the outside isn’t what’s going on in the inside. 

Recently, this year, I had been going through a detox with my friends so to speak. I had stopped speaking to quite a few of them, but when I started regrouping and talking to the people I wanted to talk to, I started finding out more than I thought. 

I have a “close”  friend named, let’s say, Angela. We used to be so close, text each other all the time, always have to talk and be on the phone, but she started finding other friends to hang around. That’s totally fine. What wasn’t okay was ignoring me, taking me for granted, never checking in on me, or trying to maintain a friendship. Angela tried to reach out to me during my second semester of college, which is sketchy considering we hadn’t talked in about maybe 2 years. Of course, I was off put, but I did talk to her. I talked to her casually and to my surprise she did message me somewhat frequently, and she was “So glad we started talking, again.” Im sorry since when were we “talking”, again? Well, I didn’t think we were because someone who doesn’t make an effort to try and talk to you in about two years doesn’t deserve the time of day unless they show consistent effort, and it is up to you whether or not you want them in your life. I wasn’t having it. As I was talking to a mutual friend, I learned that there was a lot of drama going on within her friend group.

Now, if any of you want to know, I hate drama–especially drama I’m not involved in or about relationships. Unless your relationship is one I’m very attached to like the ones on television, I don’t care. Unless you’re my best friend, of course I care. 

I found out about that, the countless drama with boys, roommates who showered with their boyfriends whenever (a little taboo for my comfort zone in a shared dorm), and fights with knives. 

This whole time I thought they were great friends and got along well. I thought they were having amazing experiences at college while I was alone. I had no idea that my small circle of friends where we went on adventures in the city, and running errands was so much better than what was happening. I’m always going to be grateful for that. I was actually in such a better place than them, which was where I needed to be even if it meant my circle was a bit smaller, popularity wasn’t totally great (not that it matters), and I’m not the greatest at studies or being social to an extent. 

So, in short, just because someone else’s life looks better, don’t wish for it. You never know what kind of grass they’re actually walking on. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this little blog! Just letting you know ahead of time that I am sarcastic, sassy, and worry as hell. 

introduction

About Me!

Hello!

I just want to introduce myself to anyone out there who has come across this blog!

I’m currently an undergrad studying pharmacy, and I should be obtaining my Bachelors in Health Humanities in about 2 years if everything goes to plan. I’m writing this blog for my own sanity and to help myself through tough times. I want to be able to find one good thing in every day. I will also be sharing a lot of my interests, which include any makeup or fashion trends/outfits I have found or put together, adventures with friends, and animals!

Scary movies are NOT my thing.

I love to draw, write short stories and poetry, photography, helping people out in whatever way I can, and being myself. If any of those things interest you, please feel free to follow me and/or share with any of your friends! If you find anything interesting and would like to share it with me, please feel free to do so! (I don’t feel like I should have to say this, but nothing creepy/disturbing please.) Starbucks is my favorite store, however, I have been trying to eat healthier. Fun fact: I don’t consumer diary or eggs!

If I am not as active on some weeks, please forgive me as I am a full time student, but I will more than likely be posting more regularly on my instagram page, which is @stepheeliza if you search it! 🙂

Most importantly, I would appreciate the comments to be positive and respectful.
