Hello my lovely adventurers!
As a student it can be incredibly difficult to figure out who you want to be and where you want to go... Some of this is because you're trying not to put yourself into (even more) debt, but there is so much to do and see and learn outside the classroom that it feels like we should be taking notes out there too. All of that being said, I'm staying in Alaska this summer to work on campus and take an online class, so there are some personal projects I've decided to take on. Here goes nothing!
Call this Part I of the "Build Self- Esteem Summer," because I can't stand seeing myself on video. I never have. I feel like I sound like I'm operating with a perpetual stuffy nose, and my mannerisms make me cringe. I'm hoping to desensitize myself to video- me, and create some cool/ engaging content along the way. (Also, hopefully help me with a thicker skin)
A Health & Fitness Journey
Part II of the "BESS," since I have the time and the inclination. As Elle Woods of "Legally Blonde" said, "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t." I don't actually have a husband, but the point remains made. I have made a health plan for the summer, including meals and a work out schedule, so Hi Ho!
Kansas is getting married in Peru this summer. Although I have technically bought the ticket, I'm now in a lot of debt to myself/ the bank. I get paid once every two weeks, and obviously groceries cost about $100 every week. I have to manage to pay off this ticket, eat healthy food, afford gas, have enough to actually survive in Peru while I'm there, and I really want a Polaroid camera and a better video camera (especially for this whole YT thing). Basically I want to survive and maybe have some nice things without ruining my credit score or starving.
Those are my main personal projects for this summer. Lots of love and luck to everyone still working towards finals!!!!!
