I hate headaches…

February 5, 2009 at 4:47 am (Uncategorized)

As a student we all have stress, anxiety and just plan old headaches. Try having chronic migraines as a college student. I woke up with one today and still had to go school. Going to TCC, I really didn’t have as big of a stress level because there’s only so much you can stress about, ya know? These two semesters-coming in as a freshman/junior- the adjustment has played a tole with my headaches.

I have been diagnosed with chronic migraines for about 3 years. It might be 4 years now, anyways, it has been such a distraction to my every day life. I use to get into so much trouble at work when I would tell my boss I needed to leave early because I was getting a migraine. She’d be like..and you can’t work? NOPE. I can’t do poop when I get them. So at least when I was at work I could control staying and going. As for school, it’s hard, let me tell ya.

This morning I woke up thinking I was going to get so much done…that was a negative. The medicine I am now on is Zomig and Imitrex. I’ve tried at least five different kinds of drugs…even botox. That actually worked, but was 3,000 dollars an injection, so that didn’t  last long. I’m sure all of ya’ll have heard of Imitrex, surprisingly it’s pretty legit. But the Zomig makes me feel hungover. Once I take it, I’m gone. I end up throwing up and not eating the whole day because of how strong that stuff is. I left school early today because I just couldn’t take it. I was very disappointed when I had to take it this morning. I wanted to do something with my life today but sometimes it’s not up to you, it’s up to the migraine.

Juggling school and migraines sucks. If you have migraines feel free to hit me up and we can vent about how painful these things are. And if you have any suggestions of how you handle it, please tell me. For those who don’t have migraines…you’re lucky.

Last Class

January 28, 2009 at 9:41 pm (Uncategorized)

So we have to start this new thing called blogging for our social media class. it’s taken a bit to adjust to but i’m starting to get the hang of it. joining all these little links and sites definitely is taking awhile to adjust to. but i think this is going to be a fun class to learn how to communicate with other people online.

i have only been using facebook to keep in touch with my friends. it’s fun, but sometimes can be boring because there’s only so much you can do with that thing. so i hope this class will give me some more places to find people and talk online. i’m starting to like twitter a little better, but sometimes it can be confusing. i’m not that familiar with this stuff so bare with me for awhile.

I did my first blog today and it’s actually pretty fun. i feel like it’s like a little journal that i can keep track with stuff each week.

To end- who likes Chris Brogan. he made me want to get out of my chair and do something with my life. he’s insane but i love him. he made me feel like i take advantage of my life sometimes and don’t really make the best out of all the opportunities we have in life. my attitude just kind of changed when i left the class- in a good way.

All right so that’s all for right now. see ya’ll around.

My Life As a Freshman/Junior

January 28, 2009 at 9:10 pm (Uncategorized)

Students come in as a Freshman all the time when it comes to starting college. it’s the most exciting time of a person’s life. as for me- i was a little behind taking the first leep of faith to a university. this is my second semester here at OSU. don’t get me wrong, i love it, but it’s definitely been a huge adjustment. a person coming from highschool to a freshman already has a lot on their plate. now just think about a person coming in as a junior where people already have developed relationships, adjusted to the campus, the work, the atmosphere, and better yet- knows what their doing. yup- i’m the TOTAL opposite. it was definitely a completely new experience for me. luckily i have the BEST roommates ever who have helped me through some lonely times.

my sister has been going here ever since she has graduated from highschool coming in as a freshman, rushed, now a g phi! she’s got it going on when it comes to meeting new people and being “excepted” in this college life. so i mean, i did come up here a lot during the past years but never actually lived here. i never really knew what i wanted to do with my life until last summer, truthfully. i mean who does these days. i think it’s crazy when an 18 year old graduates from high school thinking they know EXACTLY what they want out of life- they barely can buy cigarettes legally. what the heck? ya know! anyways so i stuck at TCC for 2 years kind of playin’ the field of what-the- hell- i- want- to- do- with- my- life kind of attitude. My best friends and i ended up getting a house with 5 girls total. it was insane and probably the best times of my life. i wouldn’t trade it for anything. that’s for sure. but let’s just say school wasn’t on my to do list.

With that attitude floating around in my head, my job was like my number one priority.i have a bomb ass job back in Tulsa as a waitress at in the raw and actually got caught up in that scene for awhile. i miss it like crazy because i established such good relationshps with these new friends i had when all my other one’s left. i still talk to the ones who have stuck with me through thick and thin but for the most part i miss them like crazy- and the food.

And speaking of who i miss- i miss my best friends like crazy as well. ALL my friends decided to transfer to OU while i decided to venture out to OSU. it’s been fun, but i’m not going to lie, there’s been some hard nights. but who doesn’t have hard nights as a college student trying to find their road in life.

But now that i know what i want out of life, who my real friends are, and now feeling comfortable in my own skin, my new project is catching up with this college life you people are talking about. i feel like these blogs will be like my “venting” sessions of the life experiences i will go through for awhile. So for you all who read this feel free to fill me in with some new places i could venture out to or better yet- let’s be friends!
