This week has been a bit tough, but I’ve really stayed positive through it. I recently got an iPhone 5, and I’ve been taking pictures like crazy with it. The camera is amazing! All of the photos in this post were taken on my phone. But anyways, life is good. I’ve been trying to eat healthy, but a 4 a.m. trip to Steak ‘n Shake is always fun. And it’s been rainy this week. All the better for pictures. Enjoy!

Here lately, I have gone crazy with beauty products. Way too crazy! My closet is overflowing. Less than half of my products are in this picture. And most of these, I’ve gotten in the last couple months. I love beauty products, but I really need to calm down when buying them. You can only use so many. After that, it’s just overkill. I hope to do some spring cleaning soon. Hopefully in the future, I will be able to control myself when it comes to beauty products. Does anyone else have this problem? I read tons of magazines every month, and I’m a sucker for the ads in them. If a product guarantees to make my hair smoother, my skin softer, my face brighter, I’m in. But not all products work for me, and I always seem to go back to the same thing. I’m thinking that from now on, I’ll stick to what I know works and just have a little fun with other products.

First of all, let me say that I’m sorry I haven’t posted in about four months. That is awful! Now let me explain why. In November, I was finishing up my fall semester at Kent State University. While that was hectic in itself, I was also hunting for an internship. Luckily for me, I applied, interviewed and received an internship with The Canton Repository. I am currently a page designer there. I mainly work on the Your Life section and the special Friday insert titled Ticket. I love working on those pages! I sometimes do local pages, as well. I’m just so grateful that I was able to get an internship (and it’s paid!).
Other than working three days a week, I am also finishing up my classes. I am taking two online geography classes this semester, and I will graduate May 11th. I can’t wait! Even though I can’t wait to graduate, I’m also terrified for the future. I have been applying for jobs everywhere. Hopefully one will come through just as my internship did. As for my after graduation plans, right now, I have none! That’s so sad. I just hope to get a job in my career field. And after I get a job, my fiancé and I will be able to finally set a wedding date. That will be so exciting. We’ve set so many wedding dates only to have them crushed by unexpected expenses and life in general. Once we both have steady jobs, wedding planning will be much easier. Here’s to hoping we’ll be married before 2015!
On top of my internship and classes, I’ve started working out. It’s no big deal, but I’m feeling much better about myself and my health. Now if only the weather will warm up so that I can run again. That would be lovely! In my spare time, I’ve been reading magazines and going overboard with beauty products. The beauty splurge needs to stop soon. I’m addicted, and I now have a closet full of hairsprays, perfumes, mascaras, lotions, lipsticks, etc. Crazy!! I haven’t had much time to take photos, sadly. I’ve been using my iPod for most of my pictures which is terrible compared to my big NIkon and little Canon cameras. I hope to change that soon.
And on my weekends, I’ve also been super busy. I never just sit at home anymore like I used to. Every single weekend, I’m out doing something. Whether it’s shopping, going on a date, getting my hair done, watching my niece (I’ll get to that in a minute), hanging out with family or friends, or heading to a party, I’m always busy enjoying life.
As I mentioned above, I now have a niece. She is as beautiful as a baby can be, and she holds a special part in all of my family members’ hearts. My sister had three miscarriages (that we know of) until the doctors found out why she was unable to carry a baby to term. Once the doctors found the problem, it was easily (well not so easy for my sister) fixed. She had to give herself a shot everyday since she had a blood clotting problem. With the shots, she was able to carry the baby full term, and she delivered a beautiful 7 lbs 4oz, 19 3/4 inches long baby girl. We met baby Junia Loreen an hour after she was born. January 3rd was a magical day for my sister and brother-in-law, and we’ve loved little Junia Petunia since!! (I will try to upload pictures soon!)
But that’s it for now. I hope to keep up with this better than I have been. If I post at least once a week, I’ll feel much better!
