Life Stuff and Liebster Award Nomination

IMG_20151105_125859During the week, Tuesday through Thursday, is usually the period where I don’t post as much as I would on the other days because I’m bogged down by homework and studying. This week was no different. Last week, I made the decision to go to night classes on Thursdays so that I could have more study time, so now Tues (pottery class) and Thurs nights are occupied. The good thing about this RMA program I’m in, is that it’s only M-Th, so I get F-Su off (with exception to studying and homework, of course). Anywho, did great on this week’s tests. This class averages between 6-7 tests per week, and this week we had 6. Got 4 hundreds, and on the other two – I missed one each, but with extra credit it should bump the average back to 100%. This kind of stuff might not matter to some, but my ultimate goals for going back to school was 1) to get a more stable job (because let’s get real, art and fashion photography wasn’t cutting it, esp with the amount of TFs requested, among other things, but I’ll save you the deets), 2) to do the best I could which involves going after Perfect Attendance, Honor Roll, and Letter of Excellence. These goals are extremely important to me and not many understand that. So far so good! This is an accelerated program, 5 quarters, 60 months to become a Registered Medical Assistant. Their grading scale is higher than the average, in that to get an A, your average has to be at least a 94%. To make it more difficult, to get the Letter of Excellence, you have to have almost perfect attendance AND you have to have a quarterly average of 98% or higher. I met my goals for 1st & 2nd quarter and am doing well at keeping it up for 3rd quarter. So yay me, I’m proud of myself.

Got plenty of mail this week, Ulta, BB5, Francescas, Walgreens, and a couple of others that I can’t recall of the top of my head. This means I’ll be posting about them this weekend if I’m able to!

Don’t you just love mail? I know I do! REALLY REALLY LOVE getting surprises – whether I bought them or they’re gifted to me. Seriously don’t get enough of it! If I had my way, I’d probably want a few boxes of goodies a day – I’m incorrigible! May need therapy at this point – or a storage unit to start stashing my stuff away so the hubs doesn’t find out… shhhhhhh.


Sun Kissed Styles was kind enough to nominate me for the Liebester Award. Thank you Brittany Nichole! I was surprised, since my blog is very new and I don’t have a lot of followers yet. It made my day (which is a good thing, because any positive on a test day goes a long way)!

Before starting this blog, I hadn’t blogged in such a long time. It has definitely been a transition for me, but I’m enjoying it, especially when there is feedback, likes and/or comments from readers! It always makes me think “they like me, they really really like me” (if you don’t know the reference, it’s probably before your time and that probably is tell-tale of my age, lol).

Here’s my lovely badge 🙂

  4. Answer the 10 questions asked to you by the person who nominated you and make ten questions of your own for your nominees.
  5. Lastly, copy these rules in the post.

What is your favorite season?
Favorites are always a toughy for me, as I don’t like to be stuck with just one thing, but I do like Fall time when it’s neither too hot, nor too cold.

How long have you been blogging?
As I mentioned previously, I just started blogging again, so not very long.

What blog post are you most proud of (link it)?
Can I say this one? If so, then this one!

Name 3 accomplishments you have made in your life.
Hmm… My son, having been able to travel to different places (but not nearly all the places I want to go to just yet), and a work in progress – going back to school

What is the worst beauty product you have ever used?
Not one in general, but any lip product that tastes or smells awful – I usually end up with a nasty headache because of it.

Who or what inspires you?
There are really too many to list. What I see and come across on a daily basis serves as an inspiration to me.

What is your go to hairstyle?
Wash, brush, wear down or clip up

What is your biggest pet peeve?
I actually thought about writing up a post about these, for instance, the serving sizes on nutritional values. Why are you going to put that it contains 1.2 servings? Why not adjust everything else up so that it’s just 1 serving? I don’t understand that!

How often do you wear makeup each week?
Maybe 6-7 days on average.

Favorite social media platform?
Facebook for personal, Instagram for beauty/other


My nominations are:
