Hi guys! It has been sometime but I had some work to do. That latter part are probably the most understated words I've ever typed. Anyway, earlier this week I graduated from University<3!
See that person on the right? That's my mom. I owe a lot to her and I'm sure it's clear that I love her dearly <3
Also I have some pretty awesome friends XD
This blog only allows a max of up to 10 pictures so a little collage of my buddies will have to suffice!
These are some of the best people I ever had the chance to become friends with, work with and hang out with. Seriously, for one of my classes the struggle was freaking real. Don't EVER leave a paper to finish at the last minute. I cranked out a 29 page grant paper a week before it was due when I had the ENTIRE semester to work on it. Do as I say and not as I do, okay guys?
If I could sum up my whole undergrad career into one picture it would be this:
Maybe I think this way because I still feel like a little kid.
College was kinda weird though o___o. If you were to ask me what I thought college would've been like when I was 16, I would've said something along the lines of, "oooo it's super serious business and I'll be writing 20 paged papers every day!." That wasn't entirely true in my personal experience. Hard to explain o___O;;
Anyway what was the point of this post? I suppose it's to show that I'm not being held back by my freaking acne. I'm living my life and going through the motions regardless of my state of my skin. I had quite a massive breakout late April/early May. They weren't just small spots but massive nearly dime sized ones. There were about 5-6 on my lower cheek/chin area. Of course they left dark scars. During that time I was reminded how breakouts can feel almost crippling. To be so clear and then suddenly go through such an intense breakout again reminded me of all the horrible feelings that I had back when my skin was at its worst.
I snapped myself out of it. That feeling of dread only lasted for about 1 minute. I knew I had been through worse and to feel pity over my breakouts would've been dumb and pointless. So I continued to take care of my skin with what I had - cleanser, treatment, moisturizers, and honey masks. And just as I knew it, they went away. I guess graduating and accomplishing other tasks really shows that there are more important things in life than breakouts. I probably was breaking out because of stress but still, it wasn't fun.
I do have a few updates with my skincare routine to share with you guys! And makeup too (that's always the fun bit for me XD). Keep an eye out for those posts. They'll show up randomly throughout the summer :V
Also, excuse the picture qualities. For some dumb reason, the site expands the image so it fills the whole blog instead of keeping it as its original resolution. BLAH. Just right click the image and select "open image in new tab" to see it in better quality.
I've been occasionally lurking and saw some new faces. Hang in there guys, it does get better and I'll see you guys later.
