Today I Am: September \\ Life Update

Hello Ladies & Gents!
So I know I’m failing with these monthly posts, I’m going to put it in my bullet journal to make sure I do them! I didn’t realize it’s been since June! Oops! Too much has been going on. Quick life update if you care 🙂

I was taking online grad classes & I was overwhelmed and when I mean overwhelmed I was having to read about 80-100 pages in 2 days plus assignments plus my 50-60 hour a week job. On top of that trying to squeeze in a tiny social life with my boyfriend and was dealing with lots of personal family things. After losing my grandpa in April my grandma’s health took a turn for the worst. They were married for 60 years and never had a day apart. It was too hard on her to lose her life partner. Among all the school and general life stress, it was hard to get daily updates on my grandma’s failing health while being away in the bay area and not at home. I was barely able to shoot videos with the little light I got on the weekends and with school and life issues, I was barely getting enough time to edit them. Of course with this, my blog and Instagram suffered as well. My grandma passed away on August 23rd which happened to also be my birthday. It’s been a tough last few months since my grandpa’s passing and now with my grandma that I just needed to take a break from social media and focus my attention towards my family. While I love makeup and social media, this is a hobby and family comes first. I have started a new grad school as I wasn’t 100% happy with my previous one so the work load is a little more manageable. I’m only on week 3, but so far so good! My grandma’s service will be this Friday so I won’t be having to prep or help family out as much and hopefully can get my life back on track to continue posting. I’m sorry if that was a lot, but I figured I should tell you guys. I didn’t post it anywhere else or when it happened. I didn’t want a pity party and I don’t feel the need to post sad posts, but now that I have coped and I’m trying to celebrate life and their lives I don’t mind sharing. If you made it this far THANK YOU! Now let’s get into my Today I Am!
