Hallelujah, the semester is over! I'll have to admit, it's a wonderful feeling to be home for Christmas break, it's HIGHLY needed! This semester was rough for me.. I was dealing with a lot of stress and I was upset half of the time. However, no matter how unfocused I actually was I made sure to put pick myself up. My grades were put up the other day and I can't explain how proud of myself I am.. I made Dean's List (3.6 GPA)!!! This is truly a HUGE accomplishment for me especially after such a rough semester. Plus, it's actually my first time making Dean's List. Nothing is impossible, always keep that in mind. I am so thankful for the people who were there for me and helped me get back on my feet to have such a positive outcome. Good things are ahead of me, I just know it! A positive mind & strong faith can definitely get you a long way.
& I can't wait to share events & things with you over my break :)
Today was the last episode for season 6 of LOQation News this semester before we go on Christmas break. This semester the entire LOQ Crew has done such an amazing job creating this show that we all work so hard on. LOQation has made such a great progress ever since I started 2 semesters ago and I could not be more happier than being apart of such a wonderful team! There has been times we had some technical difficulties but that never stopped us from filming and that's what I love. Everyone shows his/her passion for video. I cannot wait to see what next semester has in store for us and to work with new members of the show. Here I want to share with you Episode 14 and I hope you enjoy it!
I haven't really shared with everyone that I am a Communications major at Cabrini College. We have a weekly News Show called LOQation which we give updates about local news, news around the world/nation, sports, and entertainment. Currently, I am the entertainment anchor and its awesome! I love it because I believe it fits well with my personality. So I want to share with you our recent episode of LOQation because when we were all ready to film yesterday, we came to find out the teleprompter was broken! But that didn't stop us...we decided we would all find a way to make the show happen. So we just grabbed a laptop and put it under the cameras each time it was someone's turn to read their segment... Talk about teamwork right?! I know our crew can bump heads from time to time but when it comes down to it, we still manage to be the perfect team! And when you're truly passionate about something, you will always find a way to succeed :)
This past Sunday was a complete Sunday-Funday! I went into NYC to see the Radio CityChristmas Spectacularwith my mom, aunt, and family friends! It was absolutely WONDERFUL, I loved everything about it. Maybe because I love everything about Christmas and New York :) haha. It was a wonderful gift to start celebrating the holidays! Here are some pictures to share my experience...
There is so much to do in so little time! The fall semester is almost over and I feel like it just started not too long ago. I can't believe how quickly time flies by!!
Well, I thought I'd share some exciting news with everyone... yesterday I received an e-mail asking to be the President of the Advertising Club on campus. I got really excited because I thought it's such a great opportunity to have this leadership role especially when it has to do with my major! Slowly, things are falling together and I'm getting where I want to be.. Of course I still am working on getting an internship but I'm doing things little by little. "SHOOT FOR THE STARS" is what I always say :) But it's true, right?! I can't wait to share what fun things get planned to advertise and the cool events the club will get to attend.
This past weekend I decided to visit my cousins in New York. The bonding was long overdue, since we had not seen each other since July/August! I love my cousins will all my heart, they truly are a big part of my life. During my visit, we had "girls" night and caught up on our lives. The advice we can give one another is phenomenal. We always make sure we push each other to be the best that we can be. I know there are times we bump heads but they are truly like the sisters I never had. My best support system is my family! I know that no matter what I can always count on them. I would do anything for my family, they're the best! I wanted to share this with everyone because like I said, family is so important, especially to me.
worse, the break up or the heart break? I am still trying to figure out that
question. I know everything happens for a reason...but to me, it’s hard to
understand when the “where did it go wrong?” can’t be answered because in
between it all, it’s still unknown.
hardest part is remaining positive. Remember, you can’t change what happened so
just make yourself better and not bitter. It’s hard to not be upset sometimes,
not be angry but it all gets better, you get better. People walk in and out of
your life for a reason and you learn from them. What is meant to be will
find its way (I know it’s cliché) but sitting and over analyzing everything
will not make the situation better. It takes time to fully accept that the
person you love is now a memory… and as for me, a beautiful memory. But when
all falls apart, keep reaching for the stars.
yourself, love yourself, do what you love! Keep pursuing your goals and dreams.
I have kept myself so busy that sometimes I don’t even have time to think. And
what happens when I want to break-down, (because it’s normal to have those
days..) I run. Focusing myself to being healthy, feeling good, and becoming a
better student really helps. I was taught to always turn my negatives into
positives, and that is what everyone should learn to do.
for the “getting over” part...let time work it’s magic because unfortunately
there’s no delete button for feelings. Don’t forget time heals all wounds. Of
course, I will always wonder “what if…” but hey! that’s okay, right? So, if you
can relate- be positive, love yourself first and keep moving. When a heart
breaks it never breaks even…so be the strong person you know you are.
Are you someone who has big dreams? Do you not know where or when to
begin? Well, don’t be scared, start now. Time doesn’t stop for anyone *sigh*. What is stopping you from pursuing
your dreams and goals? Stop and think about that for a moment….
I am a college girl with big dreams. Just like anyone else, I want to travel
the world, go on adventures, get my dream job, be in love, and get married
(someday). So one day it hit me. What am I waiting for? This is the time to
start reaching my goals, little by little. Of course, it all seems scary, but
success doesn’t come easy. One thing that does get me through the day knows I
am not alone. Which why, whoever is reading this; you should know your not
alone either! The majority of people we look up to had to struggle as well. But
they obviously had to start somewhere, right? At one point in life, people
realize to “start now.”
remember fear is stupid. If you can overcome fear, you can overcome anything.
Everyone has the fear of failure, because honestly, I fear of failing too. It’s
natural and it’s okay. Fall seven times and stand up eight! I believe in never
giving up. Life tends to throw you many obstacles, just prove that you’re
strong enough to beat them.
am thankful for being able to get the education I am getting, preparing myself
for a bright future. I want to beat the fear. I do not want to look back in
life and say, “what if” or “why didn’t I do this.” I want to share with people
my talents, experiences, my love for beautiful things in life, my goals, and
dreams. So should you! So start now and open the door to a wonderful future.
