Time Flies

The last time I posted was almost 3 months ago. So many things happened over the summer.

I took a hiatus from technology, deleting a few social media apps from my phone (keeping facebook to stay in contact with my family), and only checking my phone maybe twice a day.

I house sat and babysat a lot. Along with the summer band I did in June, I was away from home a lot, which helped me from getting into fights with my family. It helped me stay away from my dogs and helped my allergies. It also helped me not get tired of home in like 2 days and hate summer.

On July 5th, I turned 20. Some of my family came in from out of state for vacation and we celebrated (I had no clue they were going to have a birthday cake for me). That same day, the US women won the world cup of soccer (USUSUSUSUS)

On July 16th, the Lord saved my soul. I joined the church on July 18th, and was baptized on July 19th. Part of this blog was about me trying to find out where I fit in with religion. After attending BCM for two years and learning what being a Christian means, I was able to accept the Lord as my savior.

On July 19th, I was also offered a job as a woodwind instructor for my alma mater.

I started that job on July 27th. That week gave me the opportunity to learn how to teach high school students in a small group setting.

On August 13th, I started back to college with leadership training before my band camp started. As section leader, I had those two extra days and had a lot more responsibility for band camp week.

I auditioned for symphonic band and got 11th chair. 5 better than last semester’s auditon. 10 more people to beat.

I’ve had a week of classes now. It’s all going well, but it will be a lot of hard work throughout the semester.


Nineteen, BRMB, Chiropractor

It’s been a while since I posted last and I apologize for that. I’ve been house sitting with spotty wi-fi and have been extremely busy actually having a life.

I turned 19 on Saturday. It’s not really a birthday to celebrate but my friends and I scored some free tickets to the local minor league team, the Hot Rods. They lost but there were fireworks after, and that’s all that counts.

The Wednesday before that, I went to the chiropractor. Since my concussion in March, I’ve been having at least one major, debilitating headache a week and two to three minor ones. This has left me not able to be a normal teenager because I will never know when I will be sick. For example, I went bowling that Monday night and my whole body was sore for three days. I definitely did not exert myself that much. Since my appointment, I have not had a headache. I went back today just to see how I was keeping my adjustments and told my chiropractor. She said that this was a huge accomplishment, and I agree.

After that adjustment last week, some friends and I went hiking in Mammoth Cave and I had a blast. I was actually able to walk around without pain and it felt amazing.

I got my audition music for marching band this year and I’m extremely excited to be back on campus in a little over a month. It will be my sophomore year, but I have junior credits and will be taking freshman music classes…. pretty confusing, right?

I started using my mom’s beauticontrol face brush because I’ve been looking to buy either the Clarisonic or the Olay version of it. I’ve used it four times and I can already see a difference in my face. My acne is getting better and my constant breakout on my cheeks is fading a little. This is just one more thing to go on my list of things to buy before I get back to campus… it’s a pretty long list.

Until next time, and I promise it won’t be as long between posts.
