Penpals

Well the 30 day challenge feel to the wayside. Whoops. To be honest, the questions were getting quite dull and I am being swamped with university work. I have 1.5 weeks till the end of semester and 3.5 weeks until the end of my exams. I used to have a penpal from Singapore and for some reason she stopped writing back. Was I a bad penpal? I am not entirely sure. But alas, I have 3 letters ready to send out to new people overseas.

The Future

I have lost my way.

Though it is arguable if I ever had a way to begin with. I am at the period of my life where I am looking and applying for jobs for the summer, my door for graduate employment. A real job. That is incredibly daunting especially as I do not know what I am doing with my life. When I was younger, I always imagined that I would have figured it all out by now. I would have found my passion, my desire and the path that I wished to pursue. I have to admit that I am no better off than I was as a young 17 year old. When I was a senior at highschool, I always thought to myself, "just two more years and then I will finish the HSC and I will work out what happens next at a later point". During my first 3 years of university, I had the same mentality although I knew that the future was looming in the far horizon. That horizon is here now and I am still as clueless as I ever was. I am studying a degree that is 'safe' and yet I do not enjoy it. I dislike university and I dislike all that I have done.

So what comes next? If I get hired or offered a graduate role, do I then do a job that I am not sure about and is that what the rest of my life will be? The thought of living a life where I am not living but merely existing frightens me.

Make Up

I have neglected this blog for too long. Truth be told, I have neglected a lot of things lately. I have a very tough semester this time and between studying full time law, studying at home and working at my casual job, I have not been left with a lot of free time to do the things that I love. Though, I really should.

Make up. Guilty pleasure of mine is to watch youtube videos with beauty 'gurus'. They are the perfect procrastination tool and just purely mind numbing. I have this tendency to watch them when I reward myself with a 5-10 minute break in between studying and watching girls babble about nothing is therapeutic. Although it is also somewhat weird that everyone seems to have a thousand dollars to splurge on identical products and also drive BMWs or Mercedes when they are all 16-20 years of age. Did you know that it is a big no-no to wear dark colours in the spring time? And that pastel and florals are so trendy and similarly, only should be worn in warmer weather? I digress....

I first started wearing make up when I was in Year 10, or maybe it was Year 11. I would line my bottom waterline with this eyeliner that was given by the Dolly/ Girlfriend magazine. I actually still have the eyeliner and quite like it as it is the only one that really does not budge! Year 12 I moved onto wearing a wash of brown/ bronze eyeshadow and mascara. From university for the first 3 years, I was obsessed with my liquid liner and the winged eye effect. I am quite a lazy person and whilst I do try to put on make up on a daily basis for uni I have to admit that around the middle of the semester I just become lazier with too many deadlines to meet. Up until early this year, I would usually put on, at a minimum, a full coverage foundation with pressed powder on top. I have quite a lot of freckles on my face and it would be an understatement to say that I was not a fan. I am still not a big fan of my freckles but what can I do. Nothing. Basically. I digress. I used to wear full coverage because I wanted to cover up my freckles. Not sure what happened but this year, I was so disinterested in applying a full face of foundation and now, I either only put on concealer under my eyes or I wear the Garner BB cream as it was the cheapest tinted moisturiser available at the time. Gone are the days of my eyeliner (although truth be told, it is also because I ran out and have yet to purchase a new one). These days, I will usually have:
- tinted moisturiser
- concealer for dark circles and blemishes
- pressed powder
- colour tattoo in either 'pomegranate punk' or 'bad to the bronze'
- blush!

Blush is a new discovery. I was never too interested but I purchased the Essence Gelee blush from the limited edition Vampire collection last year and I am in love with it. It gives the most gorgeous flushed cheeks look and it makes me look so much more awake. Much needed when I am spending days on end at my laptop.

The reason that the above two look worse for wear is because I took them both overseas. They have been in 10 countries, countless cities and far too many hand luggage checking machines (they also fervently despise the TSA procedure as much as I do).
