Life Update: Japan, College, etc.

Hey Everyone!

Long time no see!  I know I keep saying I'm going to get back to posting on here more regularly, but I'm really going to put some effort into it this time!  I think I might make a post on my typical "everyday" makeup and skincare routines because they've changed quite a bit since the last time I shared.

This is as festive as I got for Halloween >.<

I think the biggest thing that has happened since I last posted is that I went to Japan for a month back in May/June.  It was beautiful and amazing and there's so much to tell.  I will definitely be making a separate post once I can organize all my thoughts and the bazillion pictures/videos I took.

Also, I still haven't graduated from university.  Mostly because I keep changing my major and can't make up my mind.  I have been wavering between art, foreign languages, and heath care.  I think I know what I'm going to do though!  My uni has a program that basically lets you design your own major if they don't have exactly what you want.  I'm going to see if I can basically create a makeshift Art Therapy degree and keep my minor in Japanese.  If it all works out how I think it will, I will basically have already taken 95% of the classes I need to graduate!  My overall plan is to apply to grad school for Occupational Therapy.  My uni has an amazing program that lets you get your doctorate in 3 years and I can really see myself being happy in that field since you get to work creatively with the human body and help people at the same time.  I think my Japanese minor might actually come in handy too, because there is a city near me with a pretty large Japanese population.

I don't usually do New Years Resolutions, but I did make some general life goals for the new year.

  1. Get back into yoga!  I used to be intermediate-advanced level when I did yoga twice a day, but now I rarely do yoga once a month!  I've noticed a decrease in my flexibility and an increase in my stress.  I also get more achey than I used to.  Lately it's been hard to carve out the time (and space!) for yoga, but I want to make it a part of my life again.  Even if it's only 2-4 times a week!  An even more longterm goal is to try aerial yoga! 
  2. Improve my general fitness overall!  I've been managing stress in all the wrong ways lately and it's led to a bit of weight gain and overall sluggishness.  At the very least I want to set aside 30 minutes for cardio every day.  
  3. Live up to my potential.  I'm someone who has gotten A's throughout high school and college with minimal effort.  I think if I actually applied myself I could do even more, especially in Japanese.
Alright, well that's all for today folks.  I plan to post again sometime this week or next week.  Talk to you then!
