Inside the Life of a Cheez-It

Posted on

Have you ever questioned the underlying significance of a Cheez-It? We all know these baked crackers are made of real cheese, but why the “It.” Is it as simple as a pronoun justifying a noun? Or is there a mystery behind the square-shaped cracker? Maybe this salty snack was meant to put a satisfying “cheese” on your face…showing those pearly whites. One handful that immediately made you “Cheez-It!” Picture perfect.

One Eye Blind

Black or white. Democrat or Republican. All men are created equal. Some would agree to disagree. Not me. I believe we were all put on this Earth for a purpose. If that may be to succeed in a career or in parenthood. Each of us has our own aspirations we wish to achieve. They may all be different, but no goal is better than the other. My views have taken a 180 degree turn from my years as an adolescent. And most say that is to be expected. I no longer see things from a black and white spectrum. My thoughts are colorful. Sometimes, I feel like others judge me for my rainbow point of view. I don’t care. I accept people’s differences and try and relate to their beliefs and lifestyles. The world is too big a place to have a closed mind. I sometimes question who I am because I wake up every day questioning who I want to be that day. Is it possible to be a different person each day? I strive to be a better person than I was the day before. And I find myself asking if that’s ok. And my answer? Yes. Nobody can tell you how to think or feel. With this being said, I will continue to be open-minded. I will continue to grow and enrich the differences that I’m introduced to every day.

Let Go

Posted on Updated on

Some things go as planned, and some do not. I am willing to accept difficult changes because I know God has a plan for me. I read a quote today, “Be positive, be happy, be true, be YOU!” And that is all I can do. You know what I have realized? I have been spending the majority of my time worrying about my future and what it’s going to be like, rather than living in the moment. While in New York, I was constantly stressing about what I wanted to do after my last year of college. Did I want to come back to the Big Apple to live and work? Or did I want to live close to home? Who was I going to marry? I was so overwhelmed with mapping my life out I was not enjoying life itself. Laying in bed last night made me realize of the mistakes I have made within the last year. Of course, they are all learning experiences, but I feel like some of them could have been prevented. Ya live and ya learn, right? So, my new mission is to enjoy my last year of college, with close friends, in hopes to gain a better understanding of who I am. Not who I want to become or what I want to do with my life.

The First Day To A New Year

Posted on Updated on

Sara, here. I almost forgot my blog exists. Sorry for the delay. Anyways, today is my first day of my senior year in college. Where did time go? Such a bittersweet feeling. I can vividly remember living in my freshman dorm, and now I am living in my own house with my long time best friend, Jennifer. Oh, how fast things change. I guess you could say I have mixed emotions about this year. But, for now all I can do is think positive. If anything, I am ready to grow even more as a person. On another note, our house is super cute. Of course. My mom decorated most of it, so what do you expect? We’ve had a lot of issues with the plumbing, cable installation and ants, but other than that everything has been fab. This morning I had my DHM (Design) and Human Heredity class. My first class is at 8 a.m. and then my second is at 10:30 a.m. Later, I have Theoretical Thinking at 1 p.m. Pretty easy so far. However, easy is an understatement when I am taking 18 hours. Jenn and I have a pretty good drop off and pick up routine. Our schedules do not conflict. Other than that, social life has been good. I guess you could say I have already had my fair share of Stillwater’s Strip. So much fun. Well, this is it for now. Peace.
