Life, As I Know It...

Kiki. 24. Long Island.
Tea Enthusiast. Yogi. Positivity Preacher. Badass.
This blog is to document my journey, as well as save random pictures/quotes I enjoy.
I am working at an accounting firm doing my internship while also attending school full time.
My passion is yoga. My hobbies include archery, knife throwing nun-chucking and nerding out.
I quit smoking cigarettes on June 10, 2013. Which I feel is my biggest accomplishment yet.
I am on a journey to get fit, meditate regularly and get some money in the bank so I can eventually begin my YTT.


I believe Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best, “Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.”

I have to be excited out loud for a moment.

Yesterday I received an email letting me know that I have been accepted to my schools Master’s program in Accounting and Taxation. Today I ordered some study materials for the CPA exam. I am so excited for what is to come!

NYC

Impromptu drives into New York City with the love of my life and two of the coolest dudes ever? I THINK YES.

My love and the homies. These guys might as well be family.

My Danny <3 next month will mark four years of love with this fantastic guy.

Just got an email from my business law professor that I got a 98 on my final and therefore an A in the class. I’m feeling so accomplished and proud. It is times like this when you feel fortunate for the bad times, for without them, days like today wouldn’t feel nearly as great.

Best night ever. First of 3. Ahh!!

Going to monster mania con this weekend with my best friendssss. I wish it were Friday so we could leave now!!!

Monday was an awful day. I lashed out on friends, I had a terrible attitude at work, I felt super sick, and took an economics test that I could hardly concentrate on (and probably didn’t allow anyone else to concentrate on) since I couldn’t stop coughing and gasping for air.. So I took the day off from work yesterday to go to the doctor to find out that I have bronchitis. Womp womp. Still went to school last night because I had an accounting test, which I almost had an anxiety attack during. It’s just not my week. Today, however, I’m feeling much more Kiki-ish. Lets hope I can shake this sickness ASAP and get back into my routine.

This is me being vain while I wait for Kate to be done with pilates so we can get our homework party started!

I want to do nothing all day, but then i’ll feel so blah later!

Woke up at 8 (sleeping in “late” since I have off from work and school today!). Finally got out of bed around 9. Made myself some bacon and waffles for breakfast, cleaned the kitchen a bit, cleaned the rat cage, and then vacuumed my room. I have my business law midterm tomorrow, so I’d imagine my entire day will be consumed by studying.. with a few breaks to get some yoga in, meditate, make a grocery list, go food shopping, and then meal prep for the week.

Hopefully this all gets done today!

P.S. Friday/Saturday was my 1 month anniversary of being cigarette free ^_^ So proud!

The boo pulled through after all. His valentines day &#8220;prank&#8221; definitely didnt go according to plan, but I&#8217;m so glad things are okay between us. And I love my flowers 💜💝

day 12

Went without the patch today. Felt fine all day, so craving at all. However, I am feeling VERY tired. Probably a mix of the sunday blues, how cold it is outside, how hungry my belly is, how much business law reading I need to do, and the nicotine finally getting out of my system. I will try to go without the patch again tomorrow, But i’ll have one with me just incase.

I was running low on tea, so I got myself over to the health food store before they closed so I could have a little variety this week!!
