I’ve been finding my spirit in a struggle lately. Unrest and uneasiness. Clouded deep seeded cravings of connection, creation, success, or any other thing or things that could convince me that I’m not useless and there’s some point in being here. It’s been hard.
When I get overwhelmed, I often panic looking around at all that needs to be done and have no clear path in how to get there or even where to start. Sometimes it’s the panic that causes more damage than the mess. Sometimes the mess is so overwhelming that I skip straight over panic and immediately skip into hopelessness.
For those that think I’m negative - you don’t know me, at least who I am today. I’ve made massive strides in holding on to positivity to fight the negativity. Strangely enough, when I’m at my best, I fade into the digital distance. I don’t need this. I don’t need to be here, digging for connections, digging for relationships. Its unfortunate, but it’s mostly at my worst that I find myself here, desperately scrolling app after app - yearning to find that one connection that shatters this glass box I’m trapped in.
Please forgive me while I’m lost in this fog, struggling to rediscover where I am and to try and find hope. It’s a lonely, difficult road to travel.
NAVLE results came out today. For some it’s a huge weight lifted off their shoulders; for others it may mean there’s another hurdle to leap. Either way, you are awesome 😎 and I am excited to call you colleagues.

Next: this disappointment.
I have oily, dry, sensitive, acne prone, skin (fun, amiright?)
This should have been my holy grail, as it's supposed to address most of those concerns.
Holy hell was this the worst purchase ever.
It stains horribly, and I'd have to scrub vigorously to get it all off. One time I didn't get it off fast enough and it gave me giant red welts on the side of my face.
Its really hard to work with, it kinda crumbles in your hand like an undercooked brownie. This was a sad #fail as most of my other skincare is by lush.
