Hi guys xx
I hope you're all having a great weekend!
I just wanted to sit and chat about this blog for a moment: I feel like my intention when starting this was to have a fashion/beauty blog, which I still want to incorporate into my blog, but that's not all I want my blog to be. I want it to be lifestyle and things that interest me, I want to be able to share books and movies that I love. music and food that I love, and anything else! With that, I want to encourage all of you to comment and interact with me and each other, so we can better get to know one another!
Sound like a plan? xx
Love you oodles and oodles.
So I have been sick for like a week now. UGHHHHHH.
I thought I'd shed a little light on the topic of being sick...
You know those Youtube videos and blog posts that are like
"Sick Day Routine <33333 <33333 <3333'
THAT IS NOT WHAT HAPPENS.
I know, you know, so why hide it?
Being sick is uuuugly. The matted, dirty hair, the used tissues next to the bed, the empty food containers left on your night stand.... ugh.
There is nothing glamorous about being sick, and if you're anything like me, there is literally nothing you do when your sick that can't be done in your own bed. Netflix becomes your one and only friend while you're sick, and there may be the occasional book. I can't read very well when I'm sick because I tend to get dizzzzyyyy so I have to close my eyes often, maybe watch some movies, and when I'm dizzy- just listen to the movie... let's be honest... sleep through the movie.
I hate that those sick day videos portray this beaming ray of sunshine, nestled in blankets, and doing a snazzy DIY, or reading 50808 books. I actually watched a video last week, and the girl said her favorite thing to do while sick was WORK OUT. I'm sorry, I'm all for staying healthy, and I understand the 'sweat it out' concept, but I can barely keep my eyes open, how am I gonna run on a damn treadmill?
Oh god, I need to stop, my meds are making me feisty...
Love you oodles and oodles.
So my momma and I had some time to play tourist while in California, and I'm suffering MAJORLY from post-fun, post-vacation Blues.
It was so fun to go and see and do things that we hadn't before, and I was so thankful to have that time with my mom.
Even though I'll be out there again shortly, it's different when my mom is there with me. I enjoyed it :)
But, now I'm back to reality, which stinks. But hey, at least I get to see my cats :)
How do you guys handle post-vacation Blues? Leave it in the comments!
Hi guys! xx
I missed you so much. It's been a long long time and I have felt so void without blogging but my schedule blew up there for a moment.
I want to kind of talk about something a little deep.
So here it goes.. x
I have struggled with anxiety for years now. It's become a new normal for me and it's been hard for me to learn to manage.
And I recently went to California in a trip to visit my college with my mom.
I was so nervous heading out for the trip, but that's a different story.
This, I'd like to address head on: I was so nervous about not being able to go to this school, I had a panic attack about it and started applying to other schools for other degrees, other careers.
I had myself so caught up in thinking I wasn't going to be able to go for this degree at this school, that I was SHOCKED that they accepted me to this program. I had CONVINCED myself that I wasn't going to do well, so I wasn't going to get in and I needed to have another option.
BUT, I got in! I got accepted into their program and I'm getting to do something I love.
Anxiety and doubt can make you do and think funny things, no matter how absurd they are. Remember, always try. Face your anxieties. You may just surprise yourself.
