*proceeds to duck from flying vegetables* Okay, okay. I have been out of the scene for quite some time, but hear me out.
I made quite a big change in September of last year – I switched jobs and I also moved. This meant a whole lotta things, not the least of which are the following:
1. I have no stable wifi. I still don’t.
2. I commute with my new job, which takes approximately 1 hour going to and from my workplace. Could be more, depending on how many idiots I have to deal with on the road.
3. My new job has me STANDING. FOR 7.5 HOURS. I used to have a desk job. Imagine the sudden switch I had to pull on my body.
Internet access had been sparse (I’m fortunate to find a local library near my new job which serves as a temp means of dealing with my Internet hunger, but the connection leaves me wanting for better) and expensive (mobile data ain’t cheap), so I had to be careful with it, because bills don’t care if you have a means to pay them or not – they are due when they are due and when the Internet makes it easy for you to do that and you can’t do it… well, that HURTS to say the least.
I’ve also gone on a bit of a makeup rehab of sorts – I’ve amassed quite a huge collection and I haven’t even started on the plans that I’ve formulated in my head as far as what I’m going to do with them (between trying to get back to filming and finding an alternative to YouTube, posting text reviews here, jumping back on the Insta scene, let alone finding the energy to do this after draining shifts from work).
Did I mention that I’m also trying to go back to school?
There’s so much I want to do but I really have to space them out. But first thing’s first: I need to inspire myself again somehow – I need to remind myself that makeup was (and still is!) a safe, fun space that I can just bubble myself in from the day’s troubles.
And if I could juuuuuuuuuust step away from all the drama that’s exploded in the beauty places that I lurk at, I’ll be okay. Can’t have too much tea now.
