College Life

Wow, I can’t believe that I am already entering my third week as a college student. I have had such an incredible experience so far, and everyone has been so kind to me. I am looking forward to continue building relationships with other students, and I can’t wait to learn more from my professors.

I think this is the start of a great semester! 🙂

“Don’t settle for less than you deserve.”

I had to share this lovely post by Rêveuse. If you like this, be sure to stop by and like the original post before liking my re-blog. Thanks!

“Self-respect is about having the courage to stand up for yourself when you are being treated in a manner that is less than what you deserve.

People will give you as much respect as you give yourself. Self respect is everything.

Don’t lower your standards for anyone or anything. No relationship is ever worth sacrificing your dignity or self respect for.

Never compromise your values to please other people. Believe that you are worthy of being treated well.

When someone treats you like you are just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Don’t give part-time people a full time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle anything less than you deserve.”

Don’t settle for less than you deserve. — rêveuse

The Parakeet Post #9

I think Kiwi found herself a boyfriend… These two have been attracted like magnets for the past few weeks, and I was able to catch these sweethearts on camera during this precious moment.

However, Olive is getting pretty jealous,

and Calypso is just pouting…

*I was glad to host these two beautiful guests on this month’s parakeet post! I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I did. 🙂

All because of a FRIEND

Cage

Knowing that someone is always there to catch you when you fall is assuring as life is filled with unpredictable roads and cliffs. With one wrong slip, you find yourself descending into a canyon of empty thoughts. When you finally reach the bottom, you realize that you are trapped, and you ask yourself what steps you should take to begin the climb. You stand there. Motionless. Suddenly, you are offered a helping hand… Together, you reach the top of the mountain. Together, you overcome all of life’s problems… all because of a friend...

Feeling thankful today for the

really great people

in my life who

encourage me to defeat the

negative thoughts that somehow

discover the way into my head. With the

support of true friends, positivity always prevails!

Social Media

Not too long ago, I use to feel like the odd-one-out in a social atmosphere with other teens, because I always felt like I was the only one without all of the social media accounts that seem to “run” this generation. Recently, I have been realizing how much social media has completely destroyed the ACTUAL social life of so many people. It is even worse than most people realize…

If someone took your phone away from you for a week, how would you react? How hard would it be for YOU to be away from social media for that long? Some of you might be cringing at the thought of it, but think about how different this world would be if people weren’t on their phones all of the time. People would actually notice the people sitting in the same room as them, and they would get to know them better. People would talk about more than just the latest posts on their social media pages, and they would act like they actually cared about what the other person was trying to say by not multitasking on their phone. People would stop sending wordless Snap Chats of their faces to their friends online, and they would realize when they have a true friend sitting right in front of them trying to talk. Finally, people would begin to understand that there is more to this world than…social media…

Just something to think about.
