Lazy-ish Weekend!


Happy Saturday people!!!

Yesterday after I finished class I finally got my hair done! I haven’t been to the hairdresser since the end of October 2016, so there was a pretty decent amount of regrowth that needed touching up! For the last year I’ve had one part of my head shaved, and I love it! So yesterday, I took the plunge and had the other side shaved! I have a lot of hair, and having it long can get really heavy.

I still cannot get over how long it has gotten! Just over 4 years ago I had a choice, go blonde or go short. At the time I was scared of going blonde more than going short… So I went short. Biggest hair mistake of my life! It has taken me all this time to get my hair to the length of I can wear it down and can grab the tips when I twist my arm around my back (just past the shoulder blades)! Yeah I could’ve done extensions while I was growing my hair, but I didn’t feel that is was overly necessary even if it was annoying!

What is your biggest hair regret?

Happy weekend loves!!! Hope it’s relaxing and fun!!!!

Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day to you all too!!! Wherever you are! 🌹

A Little Appreciation!


A little bit of a recent throwback and appreciation to the guy in blue!!! My husband!!! He’s kind, caring, funny, sexy and a whole bunch of other things rolled into 1 real man!!! He’s supported me throughout our entire relationship thus far, and has even allowed me to finish a dual diploma this year, with the hopes of making something out of it that’s worth while and rewarding… There’s no one else for me, you’re just it! 

I’ve been studying most of the day and thought of sharing this with you all!

Have a great Thursday!

First Week of TAFE Done!


Well, the first week is done! And we’re onto the second week!

2 classes, 2 assessments due this week… Way too much information! My brain is already fried! And the stress is there in full force! I keep questioning why I even went the way of TRYING to do it! It’s only 6 months, but it’s 2 diplomas at the end of it, and it’s already kicked started ideas for a business!

It’s a good thing I’ve done 3 of the units previously, as right now I get 3 days of study instead of 2 between classes. Today was a complete write off, I had no motivation and was completely exhausted (thanks Hashimoto’s).

Tomorrow I’m going to pick myself up and spend the entire day finishing a draft on the assessment due this Friday and send it for reviewing before submitting.

Wish me luck!!!!!!!

Exciting Times Ahead!

This week has been eventful! Tuesday I had Orientation Day at TAFE, even though my anxiety nearly ruined it for me I persisted and came good in no time. I start on my study journey next Monday, and will be finishing in June, and graduating not long after that! I’m super excited!

The husband and I are de-cluttering our home at the moment, and we’re selling things, throwing things away, donating them to charity and all that good stuff… I can’t wait until the kerbside pickup – he demolished our big old bulky desk today and made way for our small and sleek new one we picked up cheap yesterday (a little something for me starting a dual diploma)!

I feel really good about what is ahead, and I just need to keep that positivity in mind throughout the next 6 months! It feels good to just downsize, de-clutter and brighten your life!

Enjoy your Friday and your weekend wherever you are and whatever you choose to do!

Another One of Many Firsts…


It’s the first birthday that he’s not here… But I know he is here with us, if not – he’s drinking beer with his mates and family that he’s missed over the years. I sat in silence for a while today and thought about the time I had with him, and the time I didn’t. All the memories came flooding back, all the tears, the laughter, everything. I’m happy that the time I had with him, although not enough, was a good time. Dad taught me so much, but there was one thing I’ll take with me throughout the journey that is my life.

Be honest. Even if it’s hard, be honest to others and to yourself. The truth will set you free even if it hurts.

Happy Birthday to you Dad. I miss you, and I love you.

Sunday Afternoon

I’ve had a bit of a hard time in my head lately. I think that the cause of the issue is that I am starting college in the next couple of weeks, and orientation for college is coming up next week (EEEK). So as much as I am excited to be going ahead with one of the life changing decisions that I made last year, the anxiety is back in full force. I know that when I get to the day and I am there in the thick of it I will be fine, I have to push myself through the anxiety and negative feelings (along with that annoying voice in my head telling me not to do it because I will fail) that come along with it. I learnt that very thing in therapy, you have to push through it and prove yourself wrong.

So, to the voice in my head, the negative feelings/thoughts and to the anxiety I have, I am going to prove you wrong! This also goes out to the people who thought I would fail, will fail, or am failing…

And to all of you who are going through a similar situation, where people try to make you fail for whatever reason, or if it’s the negative voices in your head telling you you’re a failure, PROVE THEM WRONG! Don’t let something hold you back, all you can do is try!

 

Hope you all are having a fab weekend!
