    The Days That Changed My Life

    The Days That Changed My Life

    January 30, 2018 the first day that changed my life forever. I was doing my monthly breast exam to check to see if I had any lumps or anything strange in my breast and then all of a sudden there it was, a lump in my left breast. I asked my mother to check it out just to make sure I was feeling what I thought I was feeling and she felt it too. I then immediately made an appointment with my primary care physician.

    2020

    What a year 2020 has been so far. We’ve all heard and read about the Coronavirus for months now, and it has obviously changed everyone’s lives in one way or another. Some lives have been devastated by it; others just feel more inconvenienced. No matter how Covid-19 has affected you, we’re all hoping to get things back to normal soon!

    living in quarantine

    living in quarantine

    Having a pair of eyes and a mind of my own. Having a functioning & healthy body, 2 arms and 2 working legs that allow me to do oh so much. 🧚‍♂️💃 Being more than capable of creating the beautiful world I want for myself each day. Living is what keeps me moving. Everyday that I wake up is a blessing, as cliché as that sounds it's true. I tell my google mini to play Positive healing music on spotify, as it sets a beautiful tone for my morning, I then make my bed, wash my face, and write in my manifestations/visualizations/dream book. I write 3 things I am grateful for, it helps me remain humble and it reminds me of the gratefulness I have for even the littlest things. I then write down where I envision myself in the future. I write in present tense as if I am already there,(perhaps Ireland) I close my eyes, imagine and feel that I'm there... and it is so blissful. The law of attraction and manifestation is something I whole-heartedly believe in. Whenever I have crazy, intense or inspiring dreams I also write that down. Watching my family working hard & smart daily for their dreams is what inspires me. Maintaining a good relationship with my family whilst receiving their constant support has been so impactful, because after all, who you spend your time with most is who rubs off on you most. Getting to know myself better and becoming a better person each and every day, looking back and reflecting and journaling on past experiences and emotions has really gotten me to understand myself better. I've realized that the only person you should be comparing yourself to is the one you were yesterday, or even a year ago. Having so much time to myself during this quarantine has definitely had it's pros + cons (as most things).. I've found myself feeling more anxious than ever, feeling more lonely than ever, and in so much fear than ever with everything going on in the world amongst other personal things. Yet I decided to pull myself through and make the best out of what feels like long and dreary days. After all it's all about your mindset and outlook on life... it really is. 👁👄👁It's about the way you choose to interpret and react to life. I began all the projects and courses I never made time for, or never had time for. I found my true love❤️, my passion... which is music producing. And haven't felt this fulfilled like this in quite some time... the mini music studio I'm creating in my room is still in progress, and is about 75% done. I finished a photography course and bought a camera + gear, something I'd been wanting to do since I was about 8, and I began a videography course on Udemy, if you've never heard of it you should check it out, they have a variety of online courses for great pricing! I cleaned out my entire closet and just began planning designs for clothing of mine I'm going to flip and re sale on DePop and other sites such as poshmark, etsy, etc. I'm eventually going to create my own clothing business by simply reusing clothes I already have or thrifted and touching them up. I began to read more and watch more videos to further my education on various topics such as the environment, politics, physical + mental health, as well as products I've been using on my skin and hair!! (Everyone should definitely check out the Think Dirty APP) if you haven't already, for it has the list of ingredients in the beauty/skin care products you use or want to buy. It lists what harmful ingredients it may contain, etc. You would be very surprised in what you find that you're using on your own hair or skin. I began watching more documentaries and high rated movies, for there is usually some sort of teaching in most of them, and knowledge is power. 90% of the time after watching a good movie or documentary there is always a lesson gained from it, something valuable that you can apply to the way you live life or to the way you look at life. For example, I recently finished 13 Reasons Why and although it was probably the most depressing series I've ever watched, I truly learned so much from it. One of my favorite lessons taught from it was in Clay's graduation speech when he basically says that no matter how low or depressed you're feeling to just remember to "keep moving", and to "choose to live...cuz even on the worst days there are people who love you, and there's new music out there for you, things that will blow your mind" and that entire speech really hit me hard, because it's true. These are words that haven't left my mind since. We often get so caught up in how we are feeling in the moment we forget that there's so much out there for us, there are people in our lives who love us truly and would do anything for us. There are so many things in life we have not yet seen or experienced that are meant for us to discover, see, and feel...and there are so many people out there who are meant to be in our lives and are meant for us.

    New York Scary Tales - Fall In The Spring

    New York Scary Tales - Fall In The Spring

    Eric falls down a lot. As a result, he's learned to sense when it's happening and usually roll onto his back with a competence that a butoh dancer would admire. (I know this being a butoh dancer.)Sometimes though on the gravelly sidewalks he catches a little of what he calls "road rash" - minor scrapes and bruises. It's all part of a life that begins with a birth trauma.

    What Having Covid19 Taught Me

    What Having Covid19 Taught Me

    I don't have an amazing recovery story. I didn't come close to death and miraculously survive. I don't have some inspirational story to play on the news to help others feel safe. I'm just a young man that contracted Covid19 with mild symptoms and lived to tell the tale.

    It wasn’t just a headache

    I’m hoping this could help at least one person out there who could be unsure of what is going on with them or that think they’re not normal. I did both.

    How quarantine has only improved my life.

    How quarantine has only improved my life.

    It was March 9, 2020 when I received an email from my school saying that classes were switched to be given online. These were devastating news to me as an international student because the levels of uncertainty were even higher than the state I was already in. I could only think of the negative aspects coming into my life. But, little did I know, it actually turned out to be better than I thought.
