Negatives and Positives

Summer has come and gone. I have not been posting as much as I have always tried to. Despite that, I miss writing my thoughts out onto my blog. I spent much of the summer applying to jobs without much luck. I had resigned myself to just being a stay at home daughter. While I did not have a full-time job; I did have an online job but I wanted a real job like my friends. It is hard to get yourself out of a negative mindset when you are in the world of social media.

It did get difficult to see when I was going to get out of this dark place but I busied myself with the four F’s: family, food, fun, and friends. I went to the Drake concert, planned a Disney trip (which I will post about), and even thought about visiting family.

 

Life is funny though. When you least expect something, it tends to happen. Right when I threw in the towel and decided to not actively look and give myself a break…I got a job. A real, full-time job. It’s been exactly a month and while it is exhausting and it sucks to not have as much time to myself–I can finally save money, pay off loans, and then hopefully began to save to maybe move out in the future, pay off debts, and get a car.

This little post is here to say: do not compare yourself to others. Life is not a race. In your negatives, you will find a positive. Surround yourself with people who will lift you up and encourage you. You will need support. Sometimes you can’t go things yourself. Life is full of ups and downs, negatives and positives, and an adventure waiting to happen.

Getting Ready for Baby

BabyPicI’m like a cat in a way..I don’t like surprises.  I was taken by surprise when my father announced my cousin was going to stay with us.  The kicker? She’s 9 months pregnant..seriously..she is going to pop any day now! Being an only child, I could admit that I felt a bit threatened at the prospect of having a family member living with us for a few months while the baby comes.

I was never big on children especially in my early teens.  I would make faces and stick my nose in the air, ignoring them.  It all changed when a family friend asked my mother to babysit her son.

Fourth of July Fashion

Fireworks

Hello Spice Girls & Guys!

 

I have a love-hate relationship with July 4th.  I love the energy, the patriotism, and the fireworks.  I hate the traffic, the closed roads, traffic, and the fashion.

I am all for showing off the colors but sometimes I cringe when I see some people leave their house in red pants, an American flag pasted on a t-shirt, and a bunch of American flag accessories.  I don’t mind if you wear a flag..as long as you do it in a subtle way.

Here are a few outfits I put together for a cute fourth of July!

There are so many ways to dress up and have a great July 4th!  What are you going to do on the 4th of July? Do you have your outfit planned?

The best thing about this day? The food and the time spent with family! Try to make it the best you can…and if you don’t have anything planned then it’s a great day to just snuggle in bed and watch some great movie re-runs!
