I Turned 21 Yesterday

Let me start off everything by saying I celebrated my birthday by sleeping and giving myself the break that I needed and deserved. That sounded so sad haha! But for real though. I then had the best meal in the whole wide world that I forgot to take pictures for the blog. And then tried bunch of new, cool makeup at Sephora too. I was having a good time. That's pretty much it. 

Okay, I kind off have mixed feelings about being 21. Just growing older in general. There's just this sad feeling that I'm growing older and in my mind saying, "there's no way to stop that". And don't get me started on some pressure about the amount of responsibilities and commitment I'm going to have. I'm certainly not ready for that phase in life. 

I have always been scared of the future. I'm so anxious about it. Like you don't know what would happen. Will it turns out great or the other way around? You have no idea. But that doesn't mean I don't strive to make my future look great. Trust me, I'm trying and it takes shit loads of effort and hard work.

Well, now that I have all of this in my mind, in order to 'neutralize' it, I need to feel some contentedness. I do feel content. I'm alive, I'm happy with my life, even though I could live a happier one but that's a different story. I have all of my favorite persons with me and a Dean's lister for 4 semesters straight? I'm not complaining. I have my beautiful baby blog which I'm proud of even though I'm really struggling to be as active as I can be. There's so much to list and I'm just going to say I'm happy and thankful. 

I have come to realize that these feelings have given me a picture of what exactly I wish to do and want to be. I have some resolutions ready for the coming year that I would like to actually accomplish. Wish me luck! 

Okay, it's clear that this is just a quick little update from me who's growing old and not really liking it. I have to put up something or else people might think I'm dead. Haha! But what really matter is I'm breathing and blessed, right? I'm grateful enough.

What are your thoughts on growing older?

A Little Life Update

I thought the blog was well overdue a life update/ catch up post. I said I was back and then decided to disappear again. I'm really sorry but sometimes I think I should just pass the need to apologize as blogging is not my main job or something. But hey! I miss writing. A lot. Regardless, I might give you guys an update on my life. 

Goodbye semester 4. You'll not be missed

I survived another semester in school, guys! I think I shoul give myself a pat at the back. I have been through a lot. A lot. It was tough. I lost a bunch of weight, I lost a lot of money too and I lost quite a few people that were once ny everything and my go-to. But hey, it's not worth to talk about. Let's move on. I did good, or so I thought. Hopefully, everything will be just fine and bismillah for the final year of school! I'm all ready. 

I have a part-time job! 

Yes gurrrl! Alhamdulillah, I wasn't expecting anything because I hate the thought of expecting, expectations etc. It gives me anxiety. But turns out, I have a job. Since I have oodles of free time now, I say why not?

Focusing more on skincare

My skin is acting up, again. I give up. I give up on makeup, I give up putting bunch of makeup on my face! Now, skincare is #1. Well, it's been #1 but I guess now it's beyond #1. Maybe you guys can suggest me great products to combat the oil, acne and scars on my face? 

My favorite month is here! 

Okay, who else love that particular month just because they were born in that month? I know I do. It's my favorite month because I was born in November 23rd. I get excited just because I'm so used to that feeling. Come to think of it, the older you get, tge less excited you feel for your birthday. Or is it just me? Maybe it's just me. Lol. The thought of getting older, more commitment, more challenges and obstacles. Aahh, it gives me chills! I'll be alright, right?

Minimalize things and saving up 

You know what, it's okay to say "no" every once in a while to every "hey, let's buy new makeup today!" or "let's go hang out to that hipster cafe we went the other day!" or "let's buy new clothes, there's a sale at bla bla bla." 

For almost three years staying at a place that I certainly don't call 'my home', I have learned so many things. I don't know how to put this into words. I just hope you get what I mean. I'm trying to minimalize everything, from what I wear to what I use on a daily basis. I just use what I have and trying not to buy anything unless it's necessary. I have come to believe that minimalize things could lead to a huge saving. I could be wrong but I can see the teeny-tiny result already. So, learn to say "no".
I hope everyone is enjoying their lives! <3
