It’s me again! Just a little update on my life. I feel as though I write one of these every other month, but honesty my life is so unpredictable I just can’t get surprised by the amount of poop it throws at me anymore. But, saying that, for the amount it throws at me two or three good things happen in return.
I felt like my face was going to jump off and run away.
Turns out a tooth which snapped in half last year in Amsterdam while eating a hot dog decided it had had enough and infected the whole of my left side of my face and the left side of my teeth. I have a major fear of needles so I haven’t been to the dentist for 8 or so years, but honestly the pain I was in is still indescribable, I just manned up and bit the bullet. I had to be put on a course of antibiotics and wait a few days to see what could be done but in all honestly I just wanted my tooth pulled. The infection got worse so by day 3 it had to be pulled, I manned up, had an injection, which was called the wand and to be fair, it didn’t even hurt because it didn’t look like a needle and the end is coated with numbing stuff, and after 20 minutes of sobbing, crushing the dentists assistants hand, swearing, 5 more uses of the wand and the use of Ikea looking tools my tooth was out. It has taught me a valuable lesson to man up and go get things done and maybe, just maybe, your whole face won’t get infected making you resemble a frog.
So I’d like to award myself with this award because I was a big girl.
I left my job.
I’m not going to get fully into the whole politics of it, however I will say if you’re working and don’t like your job, change it. There is nothing worse than not wanting to get up in the morning to go work somewhere you dislike. It consumes you to the point where if you say “Never guess what happened today”, your partner replies with three options and it is 99.9% always one of those things every time. There are plenty of options out there and there is a job for everyone. For me, I like to do my job, say bye, and go home for a kip. In my spare time I like to blog, nap, draw, and do things which will help me progress my career. It irritates me when you’re promised the world put all the effort you can into something and it dawns on you it was promised to 50 other members of staff and they sell you an empty promise. They’ve already picked that one person from the word go. Then you see they are giving everyone else that empty hope, to the point you realise you’re just a number and the hard work you’ve done to get noticed just doesn’t really matter because there is always someone who tramples on peoples heads to get where they want to be and get praised for everyone’s hard work. So you sit back and watch the Titanic sink to the point you see a life raft and think yeah, I’m off mate. So essentially that’s a polite way to say what happened. So I made a change on the biggest negative thing in my life.
Now for the good things…
I got a job.
I am back with Pixi Beauty! I worked with them around 7 years ago in Boots and honestly the difference I have seen in myself knowing I never have to step back into my old job is insane. I was planning on doing a post on their new launches but I suppose that it would seem very bias if I did it at this point. So here is a picture from one of the looks I did using them. If anyone would still like me to post it I can, it’s all written out and just needs to be posted. I will be based in the South West area, so plodding along the Bristol, Cardiff, Swansea and Southampton stores. Pop along and see me if you’d like to try some stuff out!
I am off to Amsterdam.
In exactly 9 days I am off to Amsterdam and I can’t wait. We’re planning on doing less touristy things this time and walking around a lot more. Museumplein has some really good exhibitions this time around including Dali and Banksy so I’m very excited for those. I absolutely love Amsterdam, everything there is so calming and welcoming, I’ll definitely have a dark cloud over me for a week or so after returning because I would do anything to live there. But life goes on and I have a lot to look forward to this coming year!
I’m improving my confidence to expand my blog.
At the moment, I’m rearranging my room to get the perfect ~Blogger~ set up, not to mention the fact my room needs a good clearout so I can find things in my room! I’m talking more to myself while doing makeup in a hope in a month or two I’ll be sat in front of a camera and talking to the internet. I’m planning on having two channels, one that has life things on such as Pokemon TCG, any games I’m playing and just my uninteresting life, then one which is makeup application, hints and tips. I just need to work on getting past the fact of people finding me who I know in real life and I’ll be A-okay.
Anyway, enough about me, normal schedule will resume after I return from Amsterdam and hopefully I will have a steady workflow!
