real life is getting in the way of my blogging…

Posted by

It’s been FOREVER since I posted on here. I apologize for that but it’s been for very good reasons!


I am in the process of moving to California for good! I went back to Oklahoma for two weeks to relax and pack up all of my stuff in case I found a place to live in Cali… and a whopping two days after I returned, I found a house (yes, an actual house with a yard, not another apartment)! One week later my boyfriend and I signed the lease and next day we moved all of our stuff out of the apartment and into our new home. Pretty crazy, huh? A week two from now all of my furniture and belongings from Oklahoma will be here and in two days I’m going to be bringing my dogs out to California. I can’t believe that a year ago I was going to school at Makeup Designory and now I’m living the dream in the wonderful area they call South Bay.

On top of finding an awesome place to call home, I had SO many fun job interviews over the past few weeks. I got hired and worked at GameStop for a week, which was actually really fun for a nerd like me. Unfortunately I had to quit… For a very fortunate reason though! That reason is… *drumroll please*… I GOT HIRED BY MAC COSMETICS!!!!!! Aaaaaaah so cool! That’s been the makeup artistry job that I have wanted pretty much since I started playing with makeup back in high school. All of my dreams are coming true… Dream job, man of my dreams, cute mini dream house… Someone pinch me!

It’s hard to believe that in the beginning of 2010 I was living in Oklahoma, dealing with a lot of anxiety and depression and felt really lost, but somehow I picked myself up, went after what I wanted and got it all. That goes to show you that the best things in life do not come easily, but they’re worth EVERY bit of blood, sweat and tears. If you want something, go after it! YOU are the only person who controls your destiny, so take that control and be whatever you want! Not a lot of people had faith in me until I had faith in myself. Have you ever heard the phrase “fake it until you make it”? That’s what I had to do for a while… I had to pretend that I was the most confident person in the world until I became that. Believe me, I was TERRIFIED to move away and try to make a life out here but I kept at it and here I am, living a life that seems like a fairy tale. A few years ago I never would have imagined any of this was possible. Moral of this story is that no matter who you are or where you live, anything is attainable, so never give up 🙂

Alright, I will stop being so flipping perky now haha… I promise to make a brief makeup related post on here tomorrow!! Thanks for reading!
