A Little Note on Hope and Reaching Your Goals

Hi everyone!

Life has been crazy busy lately, and sometimes I feel like I’m going 100 miles per hour. Freelancing is nice but I am itching to be full-time at a company, a real member of the team. My goal for this year is to get a full time job with benefits and move out of my parents’ house. Sometimes it feels like all my efforts are for naught, but I know that even small steps will lead you to your goal.

So for anyone out there that’s trying to reach their goals, just know that you’re in my thoughts, and you got this. Good things take time.

Whether you write op-ed pieces, novels, or beauty articles, I think there’s a little bit of something in this list for everyone.

I decided to do a complete overhaul of my skin care routine. These are the new products that I’ve been using for about the last month:
