Timing is a b*tch

Hi guys, happy monday. Wait, do we say that? Or do we say shit monday? Anyways.. I give up!

I need to get this off my chest. And I need to open up just a little to my readers, because I feel like that part I hold back just a little.

Timing is irrelevant when two people are meant for each other. It’s something that I was once told, and I believe truly deep down to my soul. I think we met during a time I was a mess, and I had so much still to figure out. At the time, I felt as if I had it all together but looking back to nearly a year ago I have realized that at the time that we meant it was just bad from the beginning. And I hate to use the word “bad” because it just seems too dramatic, but at this moment… It is the only word that seems to come to mind. But he was there for me, although he had no idea what I was going through at the time. I considered him a strong and powerful person in my life, and for those of you who know me personally you can see where I would have been very hesitant. I don’t allow people to come into my life very often, I fear they are temporary. It’s incredibly difficult for me to understand the word temporary. Why would you want to temporarily be actively involved in someone’s life and have the ultimately power and ability to disappear? It is not fair. And because it is not fair, I cannot control it. I cannot control when someone will voluntarily “choose” to leave my life or why they would ever want to.  I hate to put him on “the spot” but at this point, I don’t really care anymore. We’ve been through so much in a short amount of time and although some things were tough, confusing, or full of joy I have learned so much. I have learned so much more about the woman I want to be, the person I am destined to find and when I will find that person. You can’t rush things, especially if you want it to last forever. Two people can meet and timing can be completely wrong, I can test to that.

If you could only have met me now, how different it would really be. How differently our communication, emotions and chemistry would be, keeps me up at night thinking about more often than I want it to. If you could only see how much I have changed, maybe in ways you might not be happy with. But I don’t care. And that’s what is beautiful about the emptiness between us, I have grown tremendously without you in my life. Your absence will not stop me from growing each and everyday. You should really see me now, I think you would be proud. You were so blind, I loved you so very much. I wish you so much happiness and good luck in your future, I want nothing less than the best for you. It is what you deserve.

I have learned from all the mistakes I have made with you, but at the end of the day I just wish I would have made them with someone else.

SuperWOMAN

Hi lovies.

It’s been a little while since I’ve written a blog post, and I swear there is a good reason for that. Well… kinda?

I’ve been so crazy BUSY out of my mind! But let me back up a little bit… Around thanksgiving, I wrote a blog post explaining how sick I was with the flu. Well, since then… I HAVE RELAPSED 3 DIFFERENT TIMES. I’m not even exactly sure how my immune system even handled on that! I’m actually quite impressed. But at the same time,  I have realized that I need to start taking better of myself.
My problem is, I seem to think that I am SUPERWOMAN. I truly believe that I am invincible and I do not need a break. I was working nearly 7 days a week, no eating proper meals or no eating at all, not drinking enough water and I definitely wasn’t getting sleep. So, in the end I was sick for nearly 3 months. BUT I am back, feeling better than ever!!! I promise to take better care of myself and I will do my best to try and remember that I am only human. My dad has always told me since I was a little girl, “Sarah, you have too much drive for yourself sometimes. And that can be a bad thing.” — I see that now!

Since my last blog post a lot has actually happened, surprisingly. I have recently embarked on a new career path in my life and I can honestly say I am truly happy about my decision. This will probably be one of the best decisions of my life!
I am going to be moving into my very own studio apartment, now let me tell you guys… THIS IS HUGE! Since living in LA for nearly 5 years now, I have always lived with someone. Family, siblings, or roommates. But this time, it is JUST ME! Whoa baby, I hope I am ready for this. It was time for me to break off and do my own thing independently. Like I mentioned, I think I’m superwoman and can just do it all without anyone’s help. This will be quite a wake up call.

Since, being sick I have not been able to make any videos for you guys! Believe me, it has sucked. I have so many awesome ideas and not being able to share that with my readers/ viewers has really put me down in the dumps. I lost my voice for nearly 2 weeks and I am actually starting to feel better. So I hope to have a video for you guys next Wednesday!

Thank you all for consistently supporting me & I can’t even explain the true happiness you guys bring to me. I read your tweets, emails, and messages on Instagram… THANK YOU

Whack-a-male

I’m a girl who goes on a lot of dates, not to brag or anything. And when I say dates, I don’t mean dinner & movies kinda-thing every time. It can be lots of different things, such as drinks, coffee, or order in and watch a movie together on the couch kinda-thing. What can I say, I love hanging out with guys! And I wish most of us admitted more of that. But anyways, let’s not get off track… Where was I? Ahhh..
So, we meet a guy and he’s GREAT. The night goes perfectly well, we kiss, we head back to his place and… Oops, we have sex. It happens right? I’ve heard from so many friends that this is the part that begins to freak them out. What happens now? Did I totally f*ck it up? — But is this all true, these questions we ask ourselves? Is he thinking the same things too? Us girls can practically drive ourselves insane. Although, we do an amazing job at hiding it… Well, most of the time…

I think the point I am trying to get at here is, why is it such a game? And the days after a good, or unexpected good date, we freak ourselves out! It is not worth it ladies. If he doesn’t text you, or call you.. MOVE ON. He clearly wasn’t worth it. And if he is, you will know. He will come around, you just have to be patient. So stop chasing him or doing ridiculous things just to grab his attention for 2.5 seconds because in the end you will only be hurting yourself.
As a woman, we feel so pressured to find our “Prince Charming”. But does he really exist? I think the problem we have is that we want every guy we meet to be that Prince Charming, rather than accepting the fact that he just might not be. Someone once told me, “You have to kiss a few toads before you meet Prince Charming.” Ladies, if you continue to search for Prince Charming in every single guy you meet I can promise you that it is going to be quite a long journey for you. Stop. STOP. JUST STOP. Who cares if you slept with him, who cares if he doesn’t ever call or text you back, and who cares what he continues to do after you’ve guys had your shindig. We are only human, and as humans we make mistakes. And a lot of them. So get use to it.

Ladies, continue to be your awesome f*cking self! You are attractive, intelligent, and witty. You will naturally attract the people you WANT to be around, rather than being attracted to the people who don’t necessarily want to be around you. It’s a sad story, but unfortunately it is true. Let’s all continue to self-motivate each other that there is someone better out there for YOU. Stop settling for these assholes, stop settling for the guys who continue to play mind games because they can’t “make up their mind on commitment” and stop settling for the guy you think fits your perfect picture of what a man should be. GET RID OF IT. Whether it takes 30 days, 2 weeks, 8 years or a decade, there is someone out there for you and the most amazing part about it is… They are looking for you too :)

xo,

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

I hope you all had a warm & blessed holiday with your friends and family. And I hope you all were able to spend quality time with the people that mean the most and open some awesome presents too! And now that Christmas is over, the new year is approaching! I seriously can’t believe how fast 2014 has went by, it feels like just yesterday we were at the beginning of the year. So much stuff has happened, so many people have entered and left my life, and so many blessings have come my way.

12213d996c71b782fa8e4e1b4b75e4adAlthough 2014 was a great year, I think I am most excited for 2015! There is so much to look forward to and I could not be happier. My life has changed so much and thinking about this time last year was so different. But thats enough “blah blah” about the holidays and new year, I want to share with all my readers what I have been up to and the new exciting things I have planned for 2015 — YAY!

So first of all, I want to apologize for going M.I.A. for a little bit there. Like I said, so much has been happening I can’t keep up. I am working on my “organizing skills” and trying to stay on task with everything going on in my life and making room for others.
I was deathly sick for a week (ok, not really)
I also embarked on a new adventure with a job opportunity and I have been spending most of my time with that. Working 7 days a week and there is nothing wrong with that! I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to “grind in your 20’s, build in your 30’s, and chill in your 40’s” — if there is nothing you remember from this blog post, I hope that quote is one of them!

To help with my organizing problem, I decided to buy a huge wall calendar! I mean, it is huge! It is the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see before going to bed. I am determined to keep it updated, fun, informational and colorful. My brain responds to color.
The calendar will help keep my blog posts on track, my videos on track, my work and school schedule together beautifully. Call me crazy, I tend to take on way too much at one time. I like to pretend I am superwoman, but the harsh reality is I am not. But a girl can still pretend, right?

So, here is it!
My videos will be posted every Wednesday! And I mean it when I say, EVERY SINGLE WEDNESDAY. Even if I don’t have anything fun, creative, or smart to say.. You will be sure to find a video posted on my blog, Youtube account, and Vimeo account.
My blog posts will be posted every Friday! That day might possibly change, but for now I want to keep my blog posts every Friday.

Here’s some junk I’ve been up to.
I’m not an artistic human being, but I like to pretend I am.

Dun, Dun, Dun. I am on house arrest.

Ok, not really! So don’t freak out guys, I’m not that crazy.

On thanksgiving day, I woke up with the nastiest headache and a sore throat that was scratching the walls of my esophagus so harshly that I could barely even talk! You could imagine the pain I was in, right? On top of all that, it was Thanksgiving day! I’m suppose to be socializing with family, eating until my eyes bug out, and playing drinking games! But of course, none of that happened for me. My body was draining out and the battery level was getting lower and lower, and before I knew it I was passed out in the back bedroom for over 6 hours! I woke up, and felt worse than I felt before — now what is up with that?

Let’s fast forward to yesterday, I went to see the doctor and to my surprise I was a lot worse than I thought I was.
I saw the doctor for less than 3 minutes, he took a look in my ear and then my throat when I do that ridiculous “Ahhhhh” noise and he shook his head and said “Wow, that looks disgusting. You’ll be issued to bed rest for the next 5 days. You will go back to work on Thursday.” He literally walked out of the room and my visit was over. Apparently, I am either highly contagious and need to get bed rest or he did not want to deal with me. But I like to think it was because I am highly contagious.

Today, I am feeling much better. My cough has completely died down and my body aches have went from a solid 8 down to a 2. My throat glands are still swollen though, which restricts my neck to move and it makes it even harder to sleep like that. The second I try to sleep on my side, my neck will suffer a sharp pain and I suddenly realize that it is not such a good idea. Imagine that.

I wanted to make a video for you all this week, but with being becoming deathly ill that may not happen the way I thought it was going to. I hope to have a video for you guys soon though! I promise.

Have a great Sunday- funday, and good week!

Uh-OH. Technical difficulties?

Hi guys!

So I am really bummed about not being able to post my vlogging videos to my blog, or Youtube account. It is not in proper format, which doesn’t allow me to upload the video. Of course, I am still going to be posting weekly vlogging videos or you all to my blog’s Instagram account (@thewanderforest) but I will not be able to upload them to any other video hosting websites. What a bummer.

So, for now please enjoy the 15 second video of my vlogs on my Instagram. And if you follow me on Ocho, you can also watch a quick 8 second video as well. I will be using those two apps to upload my weekly vlogging videos and hope to get them up on my blog and Youtube account very soon. Sorry for the inconvenience guys!

Love you all.
