Must Have Conch Jewelry From Etsy

Lately I was bored of my old ear jewely and...frankly it wasn't looking too hot. Most of it was missing and the pieces I had were falling apart. So, I decided to finally invest in a conch hoop piece and some new silver hoops! I stumbled upon FlowerRainbow and fell in love! 

I purchased the Opal Conch Piercing 20 gauge 26 mm and the plain Conch Piercing 20 gauge 16 mm both in silver.Must have opal conch piercing jewelry from Etsy store FlowerRainbow

I purchased a Pink Purple Opal captive hoop set 20 gauge and a plain 20 gauge hoop set made of surgical steel at my local Hot Topic. Hot Topic always seems to have a deal going on so take advantage of the mark downs when you buy multiples! Remember to always tell your hairdresser about your piercings before they start brushing your hair! The day after I bought my new hoops I got my hair cut and before I could mention all my new jewelry the hairdresser pulled the ball right out of my highest cartilage piercing!

Trying To Survive The Semester Like

In an attempt to hold on to the last bit of sanity I have after this semester I am trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am less than a year into the start of my student teaching; which is probably when the real pain is going to happen. :P  

One thing I have not forgotten is to always get a good night's sleep. I am in LOVE with sleep! It was not always like that. There was a time I could never fall asleep and stay asleep. I would lay in bed as a child fearing for my life. I would stay up until 3AM on a school night wishing I could sleep, but too scared to close my eyes afraid I would die. 

As a child I had a hard time in school. I wasn't bullied, I wasn't friend-less. I had a lot of phobias and anxieties. This was in a time when no one talked about generalized anxiety disorder. Now, it seems like everyone has anxiety, and they do. When a person's anxiety affects their daily life for more than six months that is when it may be considered a disorder. I sympathize with the students who have problems like I did in school. Someday I hope I'm a great school counselor for those people.

Color Dyeing My Male Dog Pink and Purple

I am in love with my new doggie's hair do!!! We used semi permanent dog color hair dye on his four feet and his tail. We went for an ombre look in his tail and it went amazingly! We made sure to wash out the two colors separately so they would not bleed into each other.

I had a few spectators ask why in the world I would color my male dog purple and pink! My response...WHY NOT?! I think it's ridiculous that we still consider 'purple' and 'pink' girl colors. No where did the color pink come out and say, "Hey I'm a lady!!!" That was man made. Just like how man decided blue was for baby boys and pink was for baby girls...

Did you know back in the day pink was actually for...boys?! There's an article all about it called, The Surprisingly Recent Time Period When Boys Wore Pink, Girls Wore Blue, and Both Wore Dresses.

Boys wore dresses? And no one cared? Awesome. When can that part of the world exist again?

Most of the people who saw my male dog sporting a pink and purple do were totally okay with the idea. But some said, well he's a dog he probably doesn't even know.... wait know what? That mankind makes up ridiculous social norms that limit genders into only wearing certain colors....?! Oh yeah...that. Let's get rid of that.

Playing With Your Dog in The Water

Just recently...a few months ago :)... I was dog sitting my friend Amy's dog and decided to film him playing in the water. The footage was too pretty not to make a video out of! I also took some stills...

This dog is young and has a lot of energy! Even the biggest of dogs need to be monitored the entire time they are in a large body of water. Ideally dogs will wear life jackets for safety. We had him jump into the pond a few times for the kong toy he loves and even though it was just a few times he was completely exhausted. We had Will in the water just in case the dog needed to be rescued! After all the fun swimming I bathed the dog with dog shampoo to wash off anything that could harm him from the pond water. Have you ever played with your dog in the water? Tell me about it in the comments!

Here are my tips for keep your dog safe
while playing in the water,
1. Take frequent breaks
2. Keep your eyes on your dog at all times
3. Bathe your dog thoroughly after exiting the water
4. If your dog is not a good swimmer, have him wear a life jacket
5. If your dog hates the water, just avoid the water (It's just not his thing) :P

Changes In The Weather: Fall 2015

I'll be the first to tell you that I have been waiting for fall to begin since the start of summer! I love layers, bundling up, and of course Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. With the change of the weather comes many changes to continue to happen in my life. I am staying active with my yoga practices regardless that I am no longer attending a hot yoga practice due to lack of time and funds. I have been extremely busy with school, but am keeping my eyes on the end product; a Bachelor's in Elementary Education.

I have been seeing a chiropractor for my hips. During my hot yoga practices in a studio I noticed that my legs would go numb in certain poses. This alarmed my yoga instructor, who ironically is also a chiro, so she highly suggested that I see a chiro. I didn't know one that I liked and I felt good about her so I started seeing her. I have never been comfortable with a chiropractor because the intense snapping of joints intimidates me. However, I like her and I think that I'm seeing results. 

I was in a funk with making Youtube videos...and I still am. I dropped everything related to my social media jobs because they were taking up too much time and my schooling comes first now. Not only that but, sometimes it doesn't feel worth it. I put a lot of effort into my videos only to have a small amount of views. I try not to worry about it, but sometimes I can't help but feel angry that Youtube videos such as 'Dear Fat People' become so popular. 90% of Youtube videos are...just junk. Beyond all that though, I don't think I've ever been so happy in my life. Although I'm stressed, I have the best boyfriend I could ever ask for. He is my best friend and I feel so comfortable with him. I never thought I would call my significant 'baby' or 'babe' but I'm doing it constantly. I feel so secure with him and it's the best feeling.
