I remember I took this picture on January 21st because I really liked my makeup that day. But I also had 7 hours of work and 3 hours of school not to mention the exact same thing the day before. I was so exhausted I had fallen asleep in class and woke up completely disoriented. Long story short, my teacher wasn’t too impressed. And it got me thinking, this is the cost of working full time and going to school full time as well. Don’t get me wrong, even in my close to passing out again state, I still love how I ended up. At the age of 19. I secured a full time position at a workplace where I enjoy being (and with a pretty good pay and benefits and vacation days and all that jazz) and at the age of 20, while keeping the full time position, I was able to start going back to school again. I mean the two still leaves me physically and emotionally tired at the end of the day but I won’t give it up for anything. Today is February 2nd 2014, a little under 2 weeks after that picture was taken. It’s 3 months after I signed the contract for my promotion to full time which means I am now officially full time. I am doing well in school and this picture is to remind me. There will be times where I will be shit tired and feel like quitting. But there will be times where I will look at everything I have and realize that I genuinely am glad that I am where I am because what I have is worth being that tired for.
