June Favorites (My Birthday Month!!)

My birthday month was so much fun! Spending the first part of June back in Sacramento was great! I was able to see my grandparents and catch up with all my college friends! I was even reunited with my best friend who is living in South Korea. The rest of the month was spent spending quality time with my family and just enjoying summer.

Hair story: lob style

After contemplating cutting my hair for over 6 months, I finally decided to do it! Instead of my usually 3 inch trim, I went for a lob hair cut! Cutting off around 6 inches of hair to create a simple blunt lob cut. Just in time for the summer weather, I can't wait to see how my hair holds up during the rise in temperature as summer gets closer and closer. But for now, I'm super happy with my hair and how much lighter it feels and the dry time also got shorter after showers, which is much appreciated!

In the Month of May + Favorites

This past month had to have been the most packed moth yet! With Mother's Day, birthday celebrations, award ceremonies, my certification exam, and more, I can't believe we managed to get everything done this month. After months of preparing for my certification exam, I finally went to the testing center and sat for about 4 hours straight to complete my exam. I was also so happy that I was able to see my old Korean International class partner before he went back to South Korea!! This month was fully of appointments, but I can't wait for June!! My birthday month! And I'm kicking off June by going back to Sacramento to visit my grandparents and some of my best friends from college! It's going to be so much fun!!

Cheerleading Changed My Life

Most of my character is due to being a part of a team sport growing up and how being a part of a team influences your choices and attitude. Cheerleading was a huge part of my life along with gymnastics and without it, I would probably not be who I am today. Being a part of a team teaches you teamwork, gratitude, trust, leadership, and love. Though being a cheerleader was hard and demanding I wouldn't change those years for anything!

Building a House in Mexico

Building and painting a house for a family in need is something I always wanted to be a part of, but with college and studying the timing was never right. Finally this past weekend I had a chance to go to my church to partner with Baja Christian Ministries to build and paint a house for this beautiful family! Coming to Mexico for the first time, this was definitely an eye-opening experience and made me think a lot about my outlook on life. Take nothing for granted and always be thankful for each and every thing!
