And Thats a Wrap….

As a customary thing I do,
after every significant period of my life ends
I end a blog and start a new.  The first rendition of this
blog was started back in high school on a myspace blog.
This is version 2 and was started 1,476 days ago on November
29, 2008.  I’ve always meant to use blogs and the blog format as
a way to track my growth as a person during the four years I was in
college and I feel the purpose is now done.  College was one the most
prolific experiences of my life and will never forget the people and the
memories I gained.  But as like I’m ending this blog that period is now over
and its time to pick up to move on.  Thank you to all who have ever read
hellanella. Hope I didn’t bore you too much

Slowly Cutting The Ties…

And making the tradition to post-college life.
I put in my two week notice for my volunteer position.

All there is left is to fill out my graduation form and
ride this quarter out.
This process feels very anti-climatic to me, but nonetheless,
feels more real.
A toast to forgettable memories with unforgettable people


So I Rode

My bike today,
First time in a bit, nothing to far just the regular commute.
Went down hopkins hill after my workout
and for a brief moment I felt like my first year when I
bombed that hill for the first time.

Motivation and Success Envy

Finding motivation towards your dreams
can be a disheartening road.
Look at others success not as a deterrent
of your abilities to move forward, but as
the possibility that there is a chance to go
