Today was such an emotional day, I felt so low. I was supposed to leave for the airport in less than 5 hours but here I am writing a blog instead 🙄😛. As destiny has its own plans, I had to cancel my two-month prior booked ticket as my parents are traveling to Canada next week. My dad asked me to join them, but I refused as I have exams right after the Christmas break and I had no reason to go. Moreover, I have so many goals set for myself that it’s best to stay here be productive and make the most of this month. While writing this I feel like I’m sounding very mature but trust me throughout the day so many times tears rolled down my eyes I can’t tell. I agreed to stay because I have relatives in Birmingham and London so I’m planning to visit them (hopefully by God’s grace), I can’t stay confined in the four walls of my room.
Another reason for my random outburst was that I recently got my first job as SBS Student Ambassador at the University of Manchester. It was a big thing for me and on 29th Nov’18 I received my first salary, so I bought an iPad for my mum to gift on her birthday (19th Dec’18). But now that I won’t be traveling, I don’t know how to give her that. I hope she’s not reading this (most likely she wouldn’t). It’s fine though (my parents keep traveling, I know I’ll see them super soon 🙏), I’m just very sensitive (a little psycho ha-ha🤦🏿♀️).
For today, I had planned to record a dance video with my friend, but she did not wake up on time, so it got canceled 😏. I was confused about what to do and ended up editing my “Self-Care Sunday Routine” video which is due for like a week now. It’s still not finished yet as I got a few feedbacks, so I still got to improvise on it 😵. Later in the day, I created another beauty look, I personally loved the makeup and hair.
I shot this during the night, so I did not get the “perfect” photo unfortunately due to light issues🤦🏾♀️. It definitely looked better live (yup, self-obsessed 🤷🏿♀️). Overall, it was a slow yet productive day. Hopefully, it’s better tomorrow 🤔. A note to self: I haven’t been able to get up on time or even go for a walk recently, I feel super guilty about it and hope to work on that tomorrow🤞🏿.
Quote for day 2: “A strong woman is one who is able to smile this morning like she wasn’t crying last night” 😊
