Quick Update - I'm Moving!


Hi everyone! Apologies for my lack of updates in the last few weeks, I've been swamped by work and school.

Work has been ridiculous - I work in retail anyone who's had the misfortune of working in retail will understand my problems - the last few weeks in November were insane, and I was pushing 30 hour weeks. But payroll has been tight since then and my hours have been hovering around 8 hours of work a week. In regards to school, the semester is starting to wind down, but finals are kicking my butt right now! I'm a full-time student taking five courses at the moment. Luckily, I've gotten some term papers and finals out of the way already, and for the most part it's just the last few tests that need to be taken before I can officially let my brain go into hibernation for the next four weeks until winter session begins on January 7th -__-

Oddly enough, the thing I'm most stressed about at the end of every day about is school or work. It's the fact that I'm moving back to California from New York the day after I finish my last final! I love New York City to death; it's my heart and soul. But when it comes right down to it, financially, it just doesn't make sense for me to be living in such an expensive city and paying out-of-state tuition for an education that is not worth the amount I'm having to pay. I've been mostly okay with the idea of moving home - ultimately, it was my own choice. But as my flight home gets closer, the idea that I'm moving out of NYC has become more real than ever...such a depressing thing to think about every day. Plus, I have to pack an entire year and a half of my life into cardboard boxes....then lug them all the way to the airport - not as easy as it seems, both physically and emotionally. But hey, I'm still young, I'll get through this hurdle, which in the grand scheme of things, is a small one.

But for now, wish me luck and thanks for putting up with my pathetic sob story, heh. Hope everybody has been doing better than I have been, and let's cross our fingers that I'll be able to at least do another OOTD or some beauty/pop-culture post before the end of the year! Let me know if y'all have any ideas of what you'd like to hear from me!

  1. I hope your move goes well! >< I know how hard it is to move, I know I had to and I literally cried my eyes out when it was time to leave (I'm such a cry baby) I wish you all the luck for the upcoming events and hope work and school treat you better ^^

    1. Thank you for the support :)! Yeah I'm a total mess right now but sometimes you really just have to roll with the punches, even if things aren't going the way they were intended to. At least I'll be able to finally relax once I finish moving and get back to California!

  2. Im sorry to hear that! Not because its a bad thing, it was your own choice afterall just because we didnt get to have a lunch date since im back in NYC for winter break!!! Now youre gonna be back on the west coast! grr. I know what you mean though about moving back and forth. Every time breaks come up for school, packing and repacking. Ive already spent more time at airports than I would like. I hope everything goes well for you!

    P.S. this is Vanessa from Flying High. I'm not a random 50 year old male creeper asking for a date..... ._______.

    1. Hi Vanessa!! Aw, yeah it's such a shame we didn't get to meet up at least once! ): Thanks for all the support, I'll definitely need it because you're right, the whole packing/repacking craziness sucks. I also used to think flying was fun but now airplanes are just annoying, LOL. Hopefully, I'll be able to come back to NYC some day and we'll be able to meet up then! I really want to come back for at least grad school or even have a job here. NY hasn't gotten rid of me just yet!

    2. No problem! My break started on the 13th so I've been back for a couple days going crazy already cause no one else is home yet! Some CUNYS are ending this week. Other SUNYS are this week as well. Oh gosh I used to think flying was fun as well but I've been having the worst luck! Both the last two times I've flown there were screaming children directly in the rows near me -___-
      I hope everything at the new school goes well for you! It must be hard going in mid year, I hope you know people there! If not I'm sure you'll be fine, you're super sweet after all :D
      Definitely come visit/work here, NY wants you back lol
