I haven’t done one of these in forever. Wow. I believe a life update is well deserved on my part. I don’t know where to begin, so I guess I’ll start with school. School has been trying, oh so trying. It’s definitely gotten the best of me and is one of the reasons that I haven’t been blogging consistently. It’s hard, being sixteen and having so many responsibilities. I have two AP classes and everything else is all advanced. I constantly have homework and of course there’s after school activities and sports.
I’m trying and doing the best I can. I started looking at colleges and thinking about my GPA more than usual. I’m junior and the college application process is definitely around the corner. I finally started a YouTube channel, which you should all subscribe to (hint hint). As of right now, it’s vlog based but I plan to make beauty and fashion videos later. I might even have a few advice videos. Christmas was good and reminded me how time really does fly. Legit last Christmas feels like it happened a week ago.
But a new year, comes with new possibilities. I’m excited for what the future holds, but I want to enjoy my teenage years more. I have definitely become lazy in taking care of myself, like keeping up my skin care routine. And boy, I am such a procrasinator. I realized that the reason I have procrastinated more and kind of gave up on my skin care routine is that I’m just trying to enjoy the moment. When you think about it, we spend so much time worrying about what comes next. We never spend time thinking about right now. One of my goals for 2018, is to be here in the present instead of in the future.
To be honest, I’m struggling with life. But I’m trying and that’s all that matters.
