New chapter, new beginnings

Today marks a new chapter in my life as I have had a lot go on during the last few months.  Recently, I have been dealing with a break-up from a guy that I really cared about.  The past few weeks have been the worst because I was the one who initiated the break-up and it wasn’t really his fault.  My ex is a man who really cares deeply for others but he tends to be overly generous to even those who treat him horribly.  While this makes him one of the best people to be around, it is difficult because it has also affected me in negative ways.

I am selfish for wanting to remove the negative feelings out of my life but I just want to have more experiences in my life.  We were both in two different stages and wanted different things in life.  I wish him every bit of happiness and hope that he finds a wonderful person to make him the happiest man ever someday.

I now live in the beautiful city of San Francisco and I hope to expand my horizons further while living here.  These last few years have been very difficult and full of failures but now I feel like my life is becoming much better and full of life.  Each day brings a new friend or experience that I needed in my life.   This is going to be a positive chapter in my life that will allow me to live the life I want.  I wish for everyone to go through challenges in order to become stronger and happier in the end.

Best wishes on your life adventures!  🙂

Microwave angel food cake

Sooooo…..I love food.  I lived in an on-campus dorm for 4 and a half years and we only had a mini-fridge and microwave for most of the cooking.  I learned to make many different dishes in the microwave and now I want to share them.

The first dish that I want for this section is that of angel food cake.  It is super easy to make in the microwave and omg-amazing!

Ingredients

-6 tablespoons Angel food cake box mix

-2-3 tablespoons of water

-Dixie cup

Instructions

Make sure the microwave is cleaned out and prepared.  Place Angel food cake mix in the Dixie cup and mix in the water.  Place in microwave for about 10-20 seconds at a time until fully cooked.  Wait about 5 minutes to cool and enjoy!

This is my first segment of microwave cooking with a basic recipe but I plan to have more recipes in the future for those on-the-go.

Let me know what you think!

Hawaii: A place of new beginnings

I came back from the island of Maui a week ago with a calm mind and new outlook on life.  I decided to take a new approach with my writing and focus on the positive aspects of life.  There is so much negativity going on in the media and I want to have a place of sanctuary for those who need some optimism in their lives.

Maui has changed me forever and I hope to take my experiences with me wherever I go.  The island was full of life and relaxation that cannot be matched.  I highly recommend Kaanapali beach to anyone who seeks surfing and soft sand under their feet.  It was full of relaxing waves and a Hawaiian breeze that blew worries away.

In contrast to Kaanapali beach, my family ventured to Wailea.  While Kaanapali had many tourists and wonderful sights, Wailea was quieter.  For our location, we had the disappearing edge pool near the ocean at the Wailea Marriott.  I highly recommend this resort for couples as there were many honeymooners and babymooners there with us.  My plan is to return to both locations someday in order to relive these memories.

Try

As I have gone through my week, I have been in deep thought about what I plan to do with my life if I cannot achieve my dream of getting into the field of physical therapy.  I grow in frustration throughout the days because my determination and dedication guide me through difficult obstacles.

Today, I received my 9th rejection from PT schools this year but I am intrepid in my desire to become a physical therapist.  I want to be able to make people become more independent and satisfied with their lives.  As a physical therapy aide currently, I have seen many people recover and improve immensely throughout their treatment.  It is a joy to bring happiness to someone’s life and to provide them the opportunity to achieve their goals.

My plan is to keep trying and to not give up on my dream of getting into physical therapy school.  While I have gotten rejected from so many schools, I still will keep a positive mind as I have three schools still left to hope for.  Never give up, never surrender.

Start of my new journey

Today I have decided to start the next chapter of my life.  I have been struggling the last few years after graduating college on moving towards my full-time career.  I have led a privileged life but I still feel that same amount of depression as I did after I left school.  As of now, I am currently working in my chosen field of physical therapy as an aide for a clinic in my hometown.  I love my job but it has become a toll on my life as I have grown unhappy over time.

My journey begins with my first day of college, I was excited to become independent for the first time in my life.  My parents have been my biggest supporters but I was ready to make my journey my own.  I set off to school with the determination to succeed in my chosen field of physical therapy.  The first few weeks were very hard because I had never been away from my family.  How was I supposed to survive the next four years of college being a long distance from home?

Now, I look back and I am grateful for the four and a half years I spent at my university.  Those years were some of the best in my life.  I graduated almost three years ago from my school and I have worked for most of that time trying to get into graduate school with no success.  Tonight I had a long thought going through my head of my failure in my chosen profession.  The only problem is that I do not want to be labelled as a failure but rather as someone who grows from her experiences.  Back in the day, I used to be a pessimistic person who only saw the “glass half empty” rather than the “glass half full”.

I chose to start this blog to explore my life and keep a positive mindset that I will succeed in my career as a physical therapist.
