So while this may be a beauty oriented blog I wanted to make something clear: I believe above all else that outer beauty is not important.
I believe in making yourself beautiful to your standards.
Not anyone elses.
I don't want anyone to think that I am obsessed with makeup and care so much about my appearance. The cold hard truth is pretty far from that. I am usually too lazy to put on makeup.
The point is, I wear makeup for me. Because I like experimenting with colors and seeing what new things I can try. I do not believe in the idea that everyone has to wear makeup, or that you have to wear makeup to be beautiful.
I just wanted to be very clear on that
Because it's something I feel so strongly about, I was always attracted to "Inner Beauty Fridays" that Jasmine/ Green eyed monster posts every week.
I think it's important to identify that there are much more important things to focus on improving, rather than your looks.
SO, without further ado, welcome to my first edition of Inner Beauty Friday.
Today, I took a deep breath, and applied to college.....again.
I graduated from high school four years ago. When I first graduated, I had zero interest in going to college. I felt that college isn't necessary, nor for everyone. I still feel that way, but now I'm a bit smarter about it. I was a bit of a little punk back then, and just wanted to rebel.
For the first year or so, I thought about college but not enough to actually pursue it. Then about a year and a half ago, I made the effort to apply.
I have been through a lot of shit involving my community college. Financial aid has screwed me, deadlines have caught me off guard...long story short, I still haven't been to college!
I know that I'm going to be in debt for a very long time. I know that with this economy, having a degree doesn't guarantee you a job. I know all this, but I still want to go so badly, it hurts.
I'm a gemini- I don't know if you believe in all that stuff but the basics of a Gemini fits me pretty dang well. I have a thirst for learning. I want to be educated. I yearn to be taught new things.
So, today I took that first step...again. It's a scary place to venture into. It's extremely overwhelming, if you've never done it before. Especially on your own. A lot of people have their parents helping them, or don't have to worry about things like financial aid. But some of us have to suck it up and do it ourselves!
So, wish me luck, blogging world. I hope that come next week I will be all signed up for classes, and ready to finally begin this new adventure in life.
I believe in educating yourself and making yourself the best you that you can be, and that's what inner beauty is all about!
Does anyone else have experience in struggling with going back to school? What's inner beauty to you?
Let me know! Jasmine and I have thought about making this a blog-hop kinda thing, with as many people getting involved as possible.
Follow your bliss, all the way to school!
