Hi Beautiful Blossoms!
The title is a bit of a hint as to why I haven’t been active in the blogosphere: adjustment really is quite a process, one that I had hoped to easily glide through like I have done before.
I managed to move back to my official Home Borough – I had imagined that this would only happen at least after a year had passed, but mercifully I was spared from waiting
and slowly rotting away at my old-new old again job by a chance encounter involving a recruiting company.
Said company secured me a better job (arguably less stressful, but it is a bit frustrating that I am not as well informed as I would personally like to be. But no matter, I’ve only been on for close to a month now), but along with that came a return to college to try and improve my supposed welfare (I’m still bitter about the way my first college run ended). Since my job has me on day shift, I had to make sure my class was after my shift ended.
It seems easy enough at a glance – did I mention that I have to dive into Manhattan to go to school? And no, commuting is out of the question since my work is hardly accessible by bus or subway.
People who worked during the day and attended night school have always had my respect, though now at a much deeper level than before.
Admittedly, I had hoped that with the new job and the push from college, I could turn to makeup as my go-to hobby again. But with all the unnecessary drama that’s taken place and the reality of the beauty community’s underbelly finally exposed, I wonder if I even want to be associated with the industry.
tl;dr I started a new job but the commute is long and I also have night school during the week, so my commute is even longer. And I’m losing interest in makeup because of what’s happening in the community.

Great post! You’ll do great in your journey. Schooling in the night is hard once your working in the day, but it’ll be worth it at the end. Hang in there!

I used to have the opposite schedule: class during the day and work during the night. The reverse is so different, plus the fact that my job is, at the moment, arguably calmer than what I had to put up with at the old place makes me feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone of sorts. 😂
