February 27, 2016

Late. This post was supposed to be published on Saturday but I was thrust into a busy weekend. On Saturday I spent the day in Turlock, California to watch a few old teammates play a tennis match against Stanislaus State.  It was so great being able to visit with old friends, some of whom I haven’t seen since May.  I miss being on a tennis team, but I still stand by the decision I made to transfer to Fresno Pacific.  

I wanted to go to FPU because I felt like I wasn’t getting the most out of my college experience.  I wanted a job, an internship, or some type of experience that would help towards a future career and I felt like tennis wasn’t doing that for me.  So here I am, juggling a few different responsibilities.  My old teammates said to me “Oh, you must have so much free time now!” All I could do in response was laugh.

This week midterm exams are coming up, and to be honest I’m very stressed.  I really don’t even have too many tough midterms which is nice because last semester was brutal when it came to midterms. I genuinely think that the reason why I am not stressing about midterms is because I am stressing about other things.  

Lately the subject of finding a job I actually enjoy has been on my mind.  I am just so afraid that I won’t find something that I particularly like because I haven’t found a specific career goal yet.  I decided that I will go to the Fresno State (nearby university) Career Fair on Tuesday and I am just going to keep an open mind and put myself out there.  Maybe I’ll express interest in jobs I hadn’t before, maybe I’ll be exposed to some I didn’t know about.  I’m just really hoping that this career fair will be helpful because I don’t feel like time is on my side at the moment.

Job hunting is tough, I am not really enjoying the process so far.

I'm Allie. I live in the wonderfully beautiful central valley in California. I am currently finishing up my bachelors degree at Fresno Pacific University majoring in communications and trying to figure out how to appropriately tackle the challenge of adulthood. FPU is the third college I have attended, I like to do things the hard way I guess! I earned an AA degree from College of the Sequoias in 2014, and then transferred to Holy Names University and spent an amazingly crazy year there in Oakland, California and now I am back in the valley! I love blogging, reading romance novels, watching The Bachelor and obsessing over my favorite Starbucks drinks. Cheesecake is my favorite guilty pleasure and I am happiest when I am curled up on the couch gossiping with my wonderful boyfriend, or playing tennis any day of the week. I spent 3 years competing as a college tennis player, which means I am addicted to the smell of tennis balls, can handle excessive amounts of traumatizing conditioning, and I have friends from all over the globe. Life can get pretty crazy if you sit back and see where it takes you. This blog is my little space that allows me to chronicle my wacky journey and all of the little side roads along the way.

  1. Typical athlete response…. they seem to think that if you’re not in a sport, you’re not doing anything with your life, but i beg to differ!! You are doing SO much, and I’m incredibly proud of you and can’t wait to see what else unfolds for you in the coming months. Keep persevering, you got this!
