Where It All Began

If you told me 2 years ago that I would be travelling to New York and Ottawa in the span of a few months, I would have been doubtlessly in shock. I would have wondered if I was the right person you were talking to. For such a time I have been so used to the community or environment around me. I knew there was a larger world out there and I was eager to explore, but I thought that would be far off into the future. Travelling is a luxury not easily ascertained, although is incredibly worth it. It pushes one to see new things, meet new people, and of course a little self-discovery along the way. You learn of so much history as it has contributed to the present and witness the new world taking shape right in front of you.

Skincare For The Struggling


Whenever I stare at my face for too long in the mirror, I almost always end up thinking about my unblemished skin as a kid. It guts me to think that when I was young, I was consistently and furiously willing myself to grow older, not knowing how lucky I had it then. Nap times, no stress, and not a pimple in sight. Nowadays, not so much. I still take naps -- granted, I'm ridden with guilt when I inevitably hit the snooze button multiple times. Being stress free is pretty much a foreign concept to me now, essentially just a vague memory of a time in the distant past. And then there's my skin. Quelle horreur!

For so long I blindly navigated my way through the aisles, searching for skincare products and expecting them to do something other deplete my bank account. Although my complexion is far from what it was when I was younger, my skin has gone leaps and bounds after adding these into my routine.

My Life In A Few Words


Life these past few weeks has been such a whirlwind. I have had responsibilities thrust upon, learned new things on multiple occasions, and have been able to test my capabilities. I thought that for this post, I'd give you guys an update on what’s been going on with me. A casual and personal conversation per se. Bear with me; despite it being rather one-sided, I hope you find it interesting and are able to  at least connect with some parts.
