Update! Update!



Long time no type huh? Well, so much has changed I don't even know where to begin. I guess I'll start with skin.

Skin isn't great but also isn't terrible. I'm about 85% clear right now. I break out really bad during my period because my birth control does SUCH a good job controlling it, that when that little 7 days of not taking it come up, BAM! Explosion explosion everywhere. This time was pretty bad, but that's also pretty typical. I should be pretty much cleared up within the next week or so if all goes according to plan and as scheduled. I switched my regimen again. I'm using the AcneFree Severe kit. Um, I love it. It works sooooo good. I think I have gotten one cystic acne since using it and it actually wasn't even half bad. Whatever combo this system uses has been helping a lot. I've never used retanol before and this kit has a step just for it. Maybe that's helping? I don't really know, nor do I care, just keep on keeping on please!

I also completely stopped drinking regular Vitamin D milk. I miss it so. I switched to Lactaid, which I don't drink very often but does seem to not give my skin the sucker one, two, three, knockout punch. I've also been drinking an enormous amount of water every day (a little less on weekends). Almost 5-6 bottles a day. I know this makes a dramatic difference in my skin. When I drink water, I don't drink juices or soda (which is my absolute fave, and of course Coke). I have been breaking out a little bit more on my neck, chest, and back which stinks, but since it's winter has not bothered me a great deal. I have pretty dry skin so I think I'm going to try that Eucerin calming body wash and lotion and see how well that does for my skin. I like things like Philosophy and bath and body works but man, they break me out bad... and the smell is not worth the erruption. All in all, I'd have to say I'm about 90% happy with my skin. I think I've successfully figured out a way to control my acne pretty well, not completely, but good enough. My scars are a whole different story though. They last for months and months, but then everytime I try and treat them with a cream and such, I start breaking out again. I guess time will be the only thing to help those. I refuse to go tanning and whatever because I know that only makes it much worse. That's what makeup is for, but one day, ONE DAY, I will just need a tinted moisturizer or something... can't wait until I get there :redface:

So, as far as everything else. I'm S.I.N.G.L.E! I honestly can't be happier. Sure, you miss the companionship all the time but as far as everything else goes, I'm living it up. It's so nice words can't even explain. I want so much more for myself. Someone to motivate ME, take care of ME, give ME advice and all that good stuff. Not the other way around for once. I feel like I've had to take care of my boyfriends in both of my significant relationships and it's just something I refuse to do from here on out. I want a contributor and not just a taker. Someone that appreciates me for me and all my quirks and craziness and wild likes and dislikes, ambitions, and nonsense. A sense of appreciation, all I ask for.

School, SUPPOSED to be last semester if I get this miracle override and stuff. I'm really praying on it because it's all I need and I do need it so much. If not then plan B and take the class somewhere else if I get into a school that is accredited the same as mine. I know it's my fault because I didn't put the time into the class I needed because I thought it was going to be easy but I also had some TOUGH classes on my plate and I ended up doing really well in those. However it screwed me up with just that one class which stinks. Honestly though, all I can do is plead my case and put it in God's hands. He'll handle it however he chooses too. And no matter what everything will be ok with time and prayer.

I love life so much right now and as soon as I Lord willing get the override, everything will be going just about perfect!!!!
