Changes

There are so many changes going on today in the world, but one scares me the most. What is going on with the weather lately? Itís scaring me because people are relating it to "the whole the world is going to end in 2012" thing. I know itís mostly in peopleís minds, but it does make you think a little bit more about things after people say things like that. I for one hope that this weather is in no relation and that is not true.

Besides the rumors this weather affects me in another way. I have a very weak immune system because I am always getting sick. A factor leading to that would be all of these weather changes. One day itís all nice and sunny then the next day itís raining and cold. Whose body is supposed to adjust to that?

I know my body does not like that type of weather and that is why I am always getting sick. I donít know about anybody else but I hate getting sick all the time. I am an athlete and being sick only hurts me and my team. I know that if I am extremely sick I need to rest so that I can come back even stronger but sometimes I just donít want to leave. I hate leaving something that I love but thatís where the weather comes in.

Overall I just wish this weather would stay consistent. Either itís going to be an early summer or continue to be spring. Donít jump to winter when itís June. I just donít want to keep getting sick and then having to miss out on either school or track, or both. Hopefully after this week we get good weather that stays.

New Beginning
More...

I am glad to say that today is a new beginning in my last quarter in my Associate degree. Even though I should have finished a long time ago Iím glad that it is finally here. To make things even better I basically have two classes with an internship so I wonít be here as often as before which is great. Now I have more time to work and get homework done. 

I am also excited because every day I get closer to my dream of becoming an Athletic trainer. That is my goal! Once I become certified I can then get more experienced in my field and that is always a plus. Jobs are always looking for experience. I am very excited to see what my future holds. 

The only negative in all of this light is that I am still waiting on my internship. Once that gets started then everything will be fine. Hopefully I start that this week the quicker the better.

Tattoos

Just recently I got my third tattoo. I was so scared to get it and when I did get it wasn't bad at all. You would think on my third tattoo I would be able to chill by now, but no. There were a few parts that stung but it was fine. Now Iím ready to get my next tattoo.

I have no idea what my next tattoo will be, but I have plenty of ideas. Once again I am afraid to get them and the placement. I try to avoid ones that are close to bone because I heard that that hurts the most, but I am pretty good with pain so Iím a little skeptical. I wonder how many people have tattoos that you would never think to have them. For example my aunties have tattoos and my mom wants to get one.

That just seems weird for people like that to have tattoos and then they warn me not to get any. The only reason I would be skeptical is either pain or a job. I am careful enough to not get ones that are to visible or obscene. In the fitness world I'm pretty safe as far as tattoos, but I wonder what will happen when I go to the navy.

Either way I am excited to get my next tattoo. I just recently found a new tattoo person that is close to home so she will be seeing me a lot. I can't wait until my mom goes with me. That will honestly be a funny sight to see and memorable. Wish me luck.
