Balance. Doesn't that sound nice? Imagine having more than enough time to go to school, do your homework, participate in sports or clubs, have a job, and hang out with your friends and family regularly. Sounds amazing, right?

Hey friends!! Today I really want to focus on how important it is to do what you love. I think a lot of us can get lost during the school year. We can forget to make time for the things that we love because they seem less pressing than the demands of school. School tends to be more of a priority, and everything else isn't important.
Guys, life is kicking my freaking butt right now. Things are not going so well for me. My classes are way harder than they have been in past years. I have long dance rehearsals close to everyday. My planner, which usually helps keep me calm, is filled with so many different colors and lists of things to. Just taking a glance at it stresses me out. I feel like I haven't had time to breathe, and I feel like I'm mindlessly powering through from one thing to the next. Sometimes I'll lie down in bed at the end of the day and realize it's the first time I've really breathed all day. I'm just being kicked around without really knowing what's going on and I feel totally lost.
Hello friends!! As some of you have already seen, I made a survey on my blog to ask you guys what sort of posts you want to be seeing. Yesterday someone asked me to talk about how to respect other people's opinions even when they're different from yours, especially when it comes to politics. I'm incredibly excited to talk about this because I used to struggle with this exact problem, and while I'm definitely not perfect, I've come a long way and I have a ton to share with you guys.
This week was my first week back to school, and it was a little rough. It wasn't really bad, it just wasn't one of the greatest weeks of my life. There was that thing where I had to wake up at 6:15 instead of 10:30. I had a ton of dance which added on to the lack of sleep, I had homework for the first time in 2 months and an AP Calc quiz on topics I knew nothing about. I was hecka stressed and I hated it.
Macklemore wrote the song "Growing Up" for his daughter, Sloane, and it's really freaking good. It's one of those songs that I want to be on the soundtrack to my life. He's talking about how he feels about being a dad he gives his daughter advice for the future. I love everything he says in the song, but today I want to talk about some of the specific lyrics that are extra amazing. So turn on the song and start reading this post!!

I had a crazy busy last week of summer. I wish I could have had time to blog, but each day was jam-packed from morning to night. I was getting on that summer work grind, I had 15 hours of ballet camp, back to school shopping, dentist and haircut appointments, work... you get the point. It was crazy. I'm a lifeguard and no one was at the pool the other day, so I started scrolling through Pinterest. I was looking at someone's health Pinterest board when I saw this:
The clock read 11:40 p.m., the perfect time to go to bed and get a full nights rest before work the next day. So naturally I decided that it would be the perfect time to begin Season 6 of Parks and Rec. When the wifi was too slow to load Netflix, I switched to YouTube, where after minutes of searching, I found Jenny Schatzle's Ted Talk titled "Rewiring how you look at yourself" at around 12:03 a.m. The title grabbed my attention because I had just spent a week at the beach, staring down at my far from perfect body in my bikini. But the video claimed I already had the perfect body.
