Teaser & Need vs Want

I hope everyone had a great weekend and I hope all those moms and pet moms out there had an exceptionally good Sunday!  I wanted to give you a teaser of this week’s upcoming videos!

Ulta, Nyx & More Haul – where I go through my most recent purchases at Ulta, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Marshalls

Tag Team Pulled Pork – Nick, my special guest and I create some to die for bbq pulled pork and coleslaw just in time for National BBQ Month!

Brushes so Clean, Clean – Wanted to know one of the easiest ways to clean makeup brushes, fear not!  A quick how to that will get your brushes squeaky clean.

So please stay tuned for that (to see them first subscribe to my YouTube channel here!).  So now moving onto a completely different thought:

Torn between need and want- At what point do you have to decide between what you “should” be doing and what you actually “want” to be doing?  These next 4 weeks are going to be particularly tough and possibly sparse on this site.  Why?  Because of school.

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been in school for the last 9 months and will be probably for another 2 years.  Just over a year ago I was trying to decide what to do with my life and where I wanted to go.  Most jobs that I thought I’d like required a Bachelor’s Degree and all I have is 2 associates’ degrees.  (Why can’t I just put them together and pretend it’s a Bachelor’s?)  Ugh.  Anyway, I decided that since I was only 17 classes away and it was so inexpensive (compared to ASU at least) that I should finish up my degree.  Here I am 4 classes down, 13 to go.

Flash back to a couple weeks ago where I decided what I actually want to do with my life.  YouTube/social media.  Now, I know that it’s not only unrealistic, but it’s also absurd to want to do that for a living, but it’s where I’m at.  I’ve had people tell me that they’re proud of me for going for it, and I’ve had people tell me that I’m an idiot for trying.  But the fact is, this is something that allows me to continue to do something different, it allows me to pursue my creativity, and it allows me to help others.  All of the things I love to do all rolled into one.  I appreciate and thank all of you for your support, it means a lot to me.

What does this all have to do with the next 4 weeks?  Well, while I’m still working full time (basically 7:15-5:45 including drive time) and in a super intense 4 week “Introduction to World Philosophy” class which will mean 2-4 hours of homework each night, that leaves very little time for producing and editing videos and blog posts.  So, at what point do you let school get in the way of what you love?  I don’t want to just stop going to school, since obviously I’ve spent a good amount of money on it and kind of feel that I actually need to finish, and never go back.

It’s just kind of disappointing when life gets in the way of doing what you actually want to do.  I don’t want anyone to take this as a woe is me rant.  I just wanted to give you an update on life and what I’ve been up to.  I have 5 videos in the wings edited and waiting to be uploaded, so that should help with the next 2 weeks, and my birthday is on Saturday so hopefully I’ll be able to finish my homework on Friday so that I can actually take the weekend to do what I want to do.

Please be patient with me over the next 4 weeks, after that I have a 3 week break before staring another 7 week class (which should be much more manageable).
