This is total deja vu writing this post. I feel like I’ve written this type of blog post ten times before … explaining where I’ve been after a long absence and coming up with a hundred excuses for why I let this blog go downhill. And it almost is a little surreal typing this out because it feels so foreign to me to blog now, but at the same time this is something that I’ve been doing for the past three years. Before I get ahead of myself, I should probably explain where the hell I’ve been!
It has been a full 3 months since I posted anything on my blog! That is definitely a record for me! So where have I been? Well … I graduated from law school, started my first “real” (aka paid and not an internship) legal job, got a second job because student loans won’t get paid with just one job, began bar prep classes, started studying for the bar exam, took the bar exam and finally went on vacation!
I definitely underestimated just how big of a time commitment the bar exam was going to be. I would go to class from 8:30 until 12:30, then work from 1:00 to 5:00, then my second job from 5:00 until Midnight, and then wake up and do it all over again. And on the days that I didn’t have my second job or was off from work or school, I spent every waking moment studying. Needless to say, I was exhausted and couldn’t even find the time to see my friends and family, let alone time to paint my nails and edit photos.
While I feel like I’ve made this promise a thousand times over, I am very excited to say I’m back! Blogging was always something that I would look forward to doing. I missed reading blog posts and seeing all the creativity the nail and makeup community has to offer. I miss interacting with fellow bloggers who share a passion with me that people in “real” life don’t understand.
Thank you to everyone who has left such kind messages on my YouTube and Instagram (those were really the only things that I kept up with slightly over the past 3 months). Thank you for all your love and support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! This was definitely a trying time for me and one of the more stressful times in my life and I don’t think I could have made it through the last 3 months without a comment every once in a while with someone reminding me that I’m not a complete idiot who just wasted how much money on law school.
I have so many posts in the works! I have a ton of nail polish posts coming up (I had a good 6 hour swatch fest today!) and some great makeup reviews to come. I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things. I love all you guys and I can’t wait to reconnect with all of you!
