A day late, but shopping did take a lot out of me, yes my shopping did continue into Saturday too. Beauty, thy name is YSL (Yves Saint Laurent). I spend more on beauty products than I ever care to truly admit. I had an early makeup appointment with one of the YSL professional make-up artist on Saturday, and since I am already a huge fan of much of their beauty products I didn’t want to pass up the chance of having someone who is a professional make me look movie star beautiful for free.
My goal – to have an everyday look, very simple but fresh.
Mission accomplished… minus a couple $$$ to account for.
I now have the perfect look and some very good techniques for my skin care too. I am becoming a bit anxious the closer it gets to my birthday. I feel as though I should have everything figured out, or atleast well situated; personal, work, school, friendships, finances, myself.
When I first saw my first “wrinkle” (which actually turned out to be a laugh line) I went crazy, and sought out the best anti-wrinkle cream. I don’t mean to mean and rub this in in any way, but I don’t have any wrinkles yet. I have my laugh lines, but nothing else. I thank my telemeres for that, and thank them for being long enough not to make me look like a 30 something or more (I can’t say the same for some of my friends).
But as the day comes closer, I feel like I need to have my escape route out of here (Miami) set. I need to make the last adjustments to my trip. So far this is how I am leaving my twenties.
Personal life– Status; Single. I have accepted with happiness that I do better alone since I’m still trying to figure myself out completely. Men, are not yet at the ripe age for me to really delve into with the patience that they require. The best time I have had was making out with a girl during one of my vacations, sad but true.
Work– Promoted! Better pay, and although I am not in grad school I can take grad classes at the University for FREE since I am work for them, and then transfer them over. Gotta take advantage!
School– I am doing one last attempt for a masters program that starts in the spring. Submission deadline is October.
Friendships- After x amount of years with people, you really learn about the different types of friendships you have, and whether you should keep them as close as you use to. As I’ve mentioned in a previous post the reason I started writing was because I felt like I the majority of my friends don’t care much about my interests or what I say, and so I don’t say much because they don’t show interest (why waste my breath). On the other hand they seem to be very needy and it takes a lot out of me listening to their interest and every day events… especially when they don’t notice I make small talk. So I started a blog. I share things that interest me and find those who share those same interest. With all that said, I have started to make little tweaks, and will keep some of those people at arms length. I am okay with that, I’m an INTJ. I am mostly in my head anyway.
Finances– I am above water! I can see myself taking money aside and saving. I will be taking my trip for my birthday, and then another in September, and heading to Chicago in October.
Myself- Everyday I make it a conscious decision to pay attention to my actions. I am learning little by little to love myself, every bit of myself. I am taking the best I have to offer and putting it out there.
Side note: The other day at work one of my coworkers bought me and another coworker mexican food. As I made my through my ‘little’ fajita I thought I could take it in two bites. Well, the last bite was more than I could chew, and my found myself saying, “Well that was much bigger than I thought!” my coworker laughed, she could clearly see my difficulty in trying to chew that last piece down, and then I realized… I never had to that same reaction to any man.
No I will leave you to your Sunday 🙂 I will get back to my soccer match; USA vs. Els Salvador. We’re winning 4-1 with Landon making the last goal in the second half. Life is GOOD.
