“Each time you make a good decision or do something nice or take care of yourself; each time you show up to work and work hard and do your best at everything you can do, you’re planting seeds for a life that you can only hope will grow beyond your wildest dreams. Take care of the little things—even the little things that you hate—and treat them as promises to your own future. Soon you’ll see that fortune favors the bold who get shit done.”
Gosh! I guess its been quite some time since I last published a post on the blog or really had anything do to with my blog. My life has been…I guess you could say in shambles. You know it has gotten to the point where I physically need to carry my agenda with me all the time because of how crazy busy I have become. If I don’t write things down, then I will NEVER remember to do anything. What’s worse is that I have 2 copies of this, one in my agenda and one on my phone so that I’m always able to check my schedule and to-do list otherwise I wouldn’t be able to keep myself sane. Today I decided to do major housekeeping and re-organize and centre myself. All I’m going to say is that post-its have been a blessing. Right now, I can’t see the top of my desk because of all the post-its covering it. There are boxes and boxes of products stacked in my room waiting to be reviewed and published on the blog, my Instagram account has be completely on the back burner and I feel like I am being backed into a corner with a pitchfork. UGH there are just not even hours in a day and not enough days in a week to get everything done. I feel like the September and October months just flew by! Trying to balance a million things at once is definitely not something easy to do and it sure as hell is frustrating. School is another animal on its own. I’m finally going into 4th year and I’m very proud of myself for making it this far but holy hell on a cracker it hasn’t been the easiest journey. This semester is drowning me completely. With all the big semester group projects, individual assignments, reports, exams, and lectures…..I’m beginning to go crazy. I’ve thought about taking a semester or two off school and just focusing on myself because I’m almost certain all this stress and frustration isn’t healthy for the mind and body but at the same time I’m worried that if I take any time off i will lose my momentum and it will be even harder to get to the finish line. I guess its a double edged sword in this case. My work life has been doing well and it’s definitely getting busier going forward which is a good thing – but then again try working a full time job and doing your degree at the same time – ugh I’m pretty soon going to need an alcoholic beverage brand to start sponsoring me. My social/personal life has been struggling that I rarely find time to see my friends as often as I’d like which totally sucks! My blog…what blog?? It feels like I haven’t blogged for ages which in fact is the case. I actually plan on doing some blogging before the end of this week even if it means sacrificing my sleep. I wish I could spend more time blogging and attending events and what not but with my schedule being so jam packed its hard to fit everything in. I think its OK to take some time off away from your blog and just focus on other priorities in your life. I mean I totally feel bad for falling behind because it makes me feel like I’m giving up on my blog which I obviously don’t want to because I’ve spent a lot of time building it to where it is today. So I guess going forward my only option is to pace myself, not freak out, and just prioritize my life. I know I usually post about beauty or style but today I just felt like getting it all out there and venting. It definitely helps to talk about it I think and maybe I can encourage some of you who are going through similar things to just sit back and take a breather for a moment. With that being said, a shot or two of vodka for one please, and bring on the rest of the week.
Hope you guys are having a fabulous week so far!
