hey there, it’s been a while.

How have you been? I hope that you’ve been well. Me on the other hand, I’ve been pretty okay for once. Junior year of college just concluded and while I didn’t do as good as other people, I’m still mid-way pleased with myself. Now it’s summertime and I’m supposed to get my blog and Youtube channel back on a consistent schedule. Or at least that’s what I’ve tried to do every other year.

What is it with Junior Years?

Seriously – what is it with Junior Years of school just being 20x more difficult than the other three? Freshman years are always a little difficult because you’re adapting, sophomore years you tend to slack off a little bit. But Junior years are straight up HELL. Like, what is the difference between them??

I guess this post is an attempt to excuse myself from barely blogging at all. I had a REALLY solid schedule up over break. The problem is that I fell behind once I got back to school with writing them to be published. I would try to catch you up on anything that’s happened, but the reality is nothing has happened.

This is the first time in my college career that I actually feel like a stereotypical college student: swamped with so much work they can barely do anything. There’s just so much work that’s being piled up that it’s making it hard for me to do things that I enjoy: blogging and vlogging.

I miss daily vlogging. It was a fun way for me to rant and have no one really judge me and blogging is where I can do the same thing in a written form.

This gets me thinking: is college really worth it if you can’t do things that you enjoy? Its supposed to be the best 4 years of your life but if you’re swamped in so much work that you don’t want to do anything you enjoy because you’re so unmotivated is it really worth it?

Time will tell. That’s all for my nonsense.

My Scheming Mask – Kill those blackheads!

I know I said that I was done with review posts – but hear me out. The My Scheming Mask looked like it would actually be some help for my skin. I found it from Youtube and bought it off of amazon to try. What is it? A carbonated black head peel off mask that is supposed to pull out your blackheads and other gross crap from within your pores. When I look at my pores they always look like they’re full of gross crap so I thought I would try this. I found the mask on Amazon for $10 with free shipping.

Note: it’s not meant to go all over your face. It’s probably not meant for your chin either, but I did it anyways. Read below to see my steps and thoughts.

Hidden Figures: Movie Review

 

You guys have been getting a ton of reviews from me, but that’s because I’ve been reading and watching movies. Hidden Figures, the story of three black women in the 60’s working for NASA and having to struggle to climb up the scale, looked like it was going to be amazing from the start. Their work was revolutionary to the company and started an equal rights movement for NASA.

Katherine Johnson was recently awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her work in NASA. The film in based on true events and was absolutely spectacular. As always, read my spoiler warning before you proceed.

Sherlock Series 4 Thoughts

Since the day it was announced that Sherlock was getting a fourth season, the world was on edge waiting. First we had to wait two years for a special. Then we had to wait another whole year for a full season. By god, was it worth the wait. Sherlock season 4 had us on the edge of our seats every minute of all three episodes.

We were warned back at the first table read that it was going to be a heart breaking season. We were warned that the scripts moved the cast the to tears. I know that I was on the edge of my seat wanting more at the end of every episode. Without further ado, here are my Sherlock Series 4 Thoughts below the cut.

There may be spoilers. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. If you’re from the U.S, you can watch every episode online at PBS.org under the Masterpiece collection.

Something New: Bullet Journaling

I heard the term bullet journal a few months ago from a Youtuber that I watch daily and follow. I had kind of just brushed it off as a way to stay organized and never ended up looking into it until now. You’re probably asking yourself: what the hell is a bullet journal? You can read about that over here and I will explain to you my thoughts about what the hell a bullet  journal is below.
