Everyday Beauty: Weeks 11 + 12







The last couple weeks have been a roller coaster! There has been a lot of schoolwork stress, a lot of podcasting, a lot of worrying for no real reason, a lot of fun. I’m happy, but my life feels totally surreal right now. In one month and 5 days, I will have finished my degree. TAKE THAT IN. Whew. It’s absurd to even put that into words. I’ll be done.

There’s a lot of stuff fogging up my brain, mostly to do with graduation, and the future, and this summer, and planning, and blah blah blah. I tweeted a quote from Girls the other day: “Sometimes being stuck in my own head is so exhausting it makes me want to cry”. It’s so apt! And sometimes I do cry. But I am trying to remember the things I know to be true: that I am a reasonable person, that I am capable, and that everything is going to turn out okay. I have wonderful friends and a great famjam, and some lovely coworkers and they make me feel loved. My running is going well, and those runs make me happy and help me stay calm. Mostly, they help me gain perspective, which is the best way to stay calm, in my opinion!

I am trying to use my camera more, and it worked a little better this week. We took those crazy fruit pictures and I love how they turned out. We held book club this weekend, and it was fun as per usual. I went karaokeing with my friends briefly after work the other night and they played a bunch of amazing songs and it was hilarious. I got new glasses for the first time in several years, and I love them. I missed blogging like cray cray. Last weekend the magazine I work for threw a great party, and the next night me and my two besties went to see Stars in concert, which was wonderful. I’m playing a whole LOT of Tetris, and it’s stuck in my head at all times, but I like it. I’ve had a few great talks with my girlfriends this week. I’ve had a few moments where I feel like I could have handled things a little (a lot) better, but what’s done is done, live and learn.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, wherever you are! Hope the sun is shining and you’re feeling peaceful. xo.
