Wow guys! So it’s been a hot second since my last update, but I’m doing well 🙂 I’ve been sick in bed since Thursday. I went to the doctor’s yesterday and I have strep throat and a small ear infection. Over this time of laying in bed literally doing nothing because I’m even too tired to turn on the TV, I’ve been thinking a lot. I’ve been thinking a lot about my life and what makes me happy. There is a lot of change going on right now during my senior year of college and a lot I wasn’t prepared for. As many of you know I started a new job, I live in a new apartment, I started my minor in the business school, I started my YouTube channel, I am still crazy involved in my sorority and I’m still a nanny. My senior year has been nothing short of crazy to say the least.
The past couple weeks I have just been going through the motions and not necessarily remembering to stop and enjoy the little moment. I go to school, work, home to do homework, then go straight to bed. The next day I do it all over again in a different order. I also have a very hard time saying no to anything, so you bet your bottom dollar I still somehow manage to go to every social event, even when I should be sleeping, working out or taking care of myself. I always put those three on the back burner. Speaking of health, I sadly have not bought or cooked any food for at least three weeks. I eat out when I’m hungry and if I’m not I just don’t eat at all. No, I have not lost any weight LOL the fast food has probably made me gain weight. I usually enjoy running so much and that I had started training for a half marathon in January, but I just cannot find (or make the time) to run. I’m so tired after my everyday doings that the last thing I can do is put on my tennis shoes and go run a couple miles. It also probably has to do a lot with not eating healthy, so I’m not always feeling 100.
I also don’t make time for my blog which I love dearly. I have so many plans and so many things I want to do with it, but school comes first and it has been winning. I need to manage my time better in order to have time to make content for y’all. I also especially want to make more time for my YouTube channel, I really want to do “not so daily” daily vlogs! If you have any other requests leave a comment or DM me! These two platforms of mine have always been a dream of mine and I am so sad that I have been neglecting them lately. I recently had the privilege of attending two blogger events and it really made me realize how special the blogging community actually is! I already knew that to some extent but it made me fall more in love with it.
These past couple days have really put everything into perspective for me. I need to get my priorities in line and work on becoming a better version of myself! Sitting in bed yesterday I made a grocery list so I can meal prep all my meals for this upcoming week! I also am going to work very hard today to get all my homework done and write out my schedule for everyday this week with my mandatory events. This way I can schedule in time for things that are important to me such as working out, relaxing, go shopping, writing a blog post, vlogging, editing photos or hanging with friends!
I’m so blessed to have such an amazing support system of friends and family that are always here for me! My mom was literally five seconds away from taking a flight to Houston to take care of me. This actually is my first time in my whole college career that I am sick…. I have never gone to the doctor to get checked out for a cold, strep, ear infection, literally anything. I am usually always so healthy, so I knew this time getting sick was going to be hard. Thank you so much to Gio, Devin and Lauren for taking care of me and always loving me. Thank you also to my amazing roommate Camila for sanitizing everything and making sure the kitchen was super clean! I love y’all so much and I don’t know what I did to deserve y’all!
As I look into the week I am already a little overwhelmed. I work five nights (crying) at my hotel since the other lady is out of town, we have a home football game on Thursday night, I have my career fair to go to, we have hall of honor in my college, I have a huge project in my professional selling class, it’s my little’s birthday this week and I have a blogging summit to attend Saturday before work! But, you know what it is all going to be okay!!!! Last week I wouldn’t have said the same thing. God put a hold on my life and made me realize what is important: my health, my grades, my happiness and my friends! I am so excited to see how I handle this week and at the end of it I’m going to take the longest nap ever!! Hahaha.
I love you all and thanks for being so supportive!!! Look out for new content coming soon and changes on my website coming by the end of the year! A lot of exciting things are in store for www.cassidyculp.com and I can’t wait for y’all to be on this journey with me! Peace & blessings.
