Wow. April really threw me for a loop. I really don’t think I have ever accomplished more in a month. April left me stressed out, it’s always a crazy month between school and work, but I really couldn’t have anticipated how hectic April was going to be. I really am proud of what I accomplished in April. So here is my round-up!
The first week of April was really fun. I started working out again and it really made a huge difference on my mood and how I was feeling. I go to Corepower four times a week and I run once a week. It really does put me in the best mood and I’m glad I was able to get back to that in April.
I also got into a really good rhythm with this blog! I have some amazing plans for May and I can’t wait to get started. This has been such an amazing start and it still shocks me to see that people are actually reading this.
April brought a lot of Disney College Program related stress. I still don’t really have a great plan for moving out of my dorm haha but I know at this point (18 days left!) that I will figure things out. I am so excited, it’s going to be an amazing adventure.
Now, April was really hard. It was hard academically, it was hard on my schedule and it was hard on my time management. I really wonder sometimes if everything I throw myself into is worth it but then I always think back to high school (weird I know) and I know that it is.
If I would have never randomly joined the swim team in 9th grade, I would have never gotten accepted to the Disney College Program as a lifeguard. If I would have never written for a Disney Blog in middle school, I would have never know how to start Mstaylorphillips. If I would have never joined the basketball team, I would have never learned that I am capable of dealing with high stress situations (and lots of criticism in the form of yelling). If I would have never lost/failed at so. many. things I would have never learned to be resilient.
I can’t help but think all the decisions I am making right now in 5 or 10 years I will be able to say, wow, if I would have never started that blog, joined the cheer team, did the Disney College Program, interned at Alchimie, I would have never gotten, who knows what! It’s exciting and comforting to know that in the long run its all going to be worth it.
So now when I am feeling how I am currently, very overwhelmed and doubting myself. I just think 5 years ago I had no clue I would be doing any of these things and Taylor Phillips starting her freshman year of high school would be so proud of me and probably would think I am pretty cool.
So that is April. Heres hoping May is equally exciting, challenging and fun, but maybe half as stressful!
