Hora de Chisme: Everything is a work in progress.

by - July 30, 2017

Hi everyone and welcome back to another life update. The last Hora de Chisme, I posted was two months ago, so I felt like I needed to sneak one in before things got a little hectic.  

Two months ago, I touched on two important topics that were happening in my life. One of the topics was that I'm traveling to New York and another one is moving back to San Jose. Although, this is what Hora de Chisme is going to focus on today; I also want to go into more details about it and sneak somethings.

I am currently getting my things ready for both New York and San Jose. I will be leaving to NY August 1st-8th. Also I want I add in that Monica will not be traveling with us, due to personal reasons; so, it will only be Magz and I. Yes, the itinerary is done and its going to be freaking crazy. I'm already tired and all I've done is buy the things I need for the trip. Now when I come back from the trip, I'll start my packing because I'm heading back to San Jose on August 12th. With a heavy heart, this will be the last weekend here at home with my family until I'll be able to come back and something tells me it won't be soon. Since I'll only be home for three days after my trip; I need to fit in so many things with such a short time span. So, I'm hoping for the best. 

I recently cleaned out the garage looking for my things from San Jose and I only found one small box. So, I'm on the hunt for the rest of my boxes. I will be moving to an apartment; which means I have to do some apartment shopping once I get back to SJ. I will be living with Yahaira, Margarita, and Danika. My actual roommate is Danika and I'm really excited to meet her. Yahaira and Margarita are my pledge sisters, so I know how they are. No biggy. 

So in the beginning of July, my old manager texted me if I wanted my old job back and I said yes of course! But unfortunately due to construction the store is closing down and everyone is being moved around. At that moment, I thought I had to look for a new job, but I was so fortunate because she had basically three jobs for me and all I had to do was choose. Which is the reason why I'm going to San Jose early. Your girl has to go to work early. 

Within the 8 months I was here at home I learned SO much. I learned more about myself, school, and relationships. I learned that I put myself in a funk. I wouldn't say its all in my head, but some things really don't need a reaction and somethings are not even important to acknowledge. Sometimes I just have to get up and do it, you know what I'm saying? And I know in the past I've talked about how I go through stages where I'm perfecting fine and the next thing you know I'm not. With that being said for the sake of myself I will be attending counseling and that is something big because I always been against it. But its something I need. Now to school. I learned that I have to put more effort than I usually do and how I said earlier sometimes I just need to get up and do it. Over the summer I would wake up around 5:45am three days out of the week to drive to my summer course that started at 8am. Now let me tell you, that's dedication! Back then I wouldn't even go to my 9am class living on campus. It was so bad back then, but I realized that I need my education. I can't just sit around and be lazy. With that beginning said, I will be doing school goals for each month of the semester. Similar to the monthly goals I'm doing now, but obviously dealing with school. Now relationships. I'll say this once and keep it nice and short: one sided friendships/relationships need to end. 

Lately, I've been so happy. Although things are not always falling into place I'm starting to feel like some weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I don't dwell on things so much either because everything happens to fast that all I really can do I is focus on myself if there's nothing I can do about it. I know I sound like a broken record at this point, but things got better and will continue to do better. Thank you! 

That will be it for today's Hora de Chisme and of course I'll see you soon.
