Inspirations of the Week

Wow! Two in one day? I know, I know… I haven’t properly paid tribute to Mr. David Bowie since he passed away, even though it was a death that hurt like hell. But, now I know exactly how to do that.

This is one of my favorite songs by Bowie and I think it is such a cool song, basically telling everyone that you can be whatever you want to be and do what you wish to do! It speaks levels of being who you are, wishing, dreaming, and not caring what others think. Bowie was a true masterpiece and I think everyone should give this song a listen. And remember you can be “mean”, you can “drink”, you can “swim like the dolphins”, you can “beat” whoever is oppressing you in your life, and “we can be heroes”.

Stay strong and stay happy,

Personal Fitness and Other Such Things

Hey ya’ll,

I know I haven’t posted in awhile but I just wanted to drop a line. My fiancee and I have started recently at Planet Fitness to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle. Very excited about this! Other than that I have been busy working at my family’s greenhouse and being around family this summer.

I know I have mentioned previously about a friend passing away, it is still weighing on me but I have been able to make a new friend for this very reason;  his lovely girlfriend and I have become friends due to this unfortunate event. I would never wish for him to leave, but I am happy things are looking up.

I also cannot wait to go back to Western Michigan University this fall, it has been in my mind since I left. I will be taking great classes this semester and I am living with one of my very best friends!  Life is good, even with ups and downs.

 

Stay strong and stay happy friends,

Kelly Snow

Ending My First Year

Hey,

I just wanted to take a minute to reflect my life at Western Michigan University now that I have just completed my first year there. WMU is an amazing place, for sure; in the past year I have made many friends and lost a few too, I have gotten engaged, had accomplishments, and lost my footing, and it was all incredible! Sure, with the up’s and down’s sometimes I was stressed and wanted to quit, but I made it and cannot wait to do it all over again next year. I want to thank everyone at Western for making my last year so memorable!

I Went West and do not regret a moment of it!

P!ATD

Hey guys,

I just wanted to share my recent experience of being able to see Panic! At The Disco live! It was really great and I think that they perform so well in concert, I recommend seeing them if you ever get the chance.  The whole concert had so much energy and the band was very interactive. I really encourage everyone to go out and have fun like this, we have one life to live and we all need to do our best to get every experience we can!
