(Yes, I still exist!)
I miss you (and I feel guilty that I haven’t been writing) but UNI work is taking up
most a lot of my time. You are still (always) on my mind, I promise you! My draft posts have never been so abundant, it’s just harder to find time to finish and publish them now.
Since I did mention Uni… here’s something about me and my university life. This is more or a confession.
I am not going to pretend that I plan my outfits in advance (on a daily basis) – I don’t.
When I ‘m at uni I usually only care about one thing: comfort. It might be a tad lazy of me to wear ‘the first thing that I find’, but it’s all (I say) I have time for. I know that a little bit more effort could make me feel better (about myself), throughout the day… But truth be told, especially after a long day, I only want to wake up to wearing trainers and jeans.
This is the sort of thing you might see me in, when I’m on campus:
I don’t have anything against those who do find the time to choose the perfect outfit, do full make up (daily!), wear heels, and accessorize. It’s really up to them and I (sometimes, secretly) admire them. However, I still don’t understand the need for it. I would rather have those extra few minutes in bed, but that’s just me! And if I had to be completely honest, I don’t feel that it’s that important to me to look perfectly polished at a lecture.
(I still enjoy the ‘getting ready’, and the ‘getting dressed’ part for every other occasion, but no, not for uni purposes!)
As I said, it might be lazy of me. But it’s true… I only care once in a while – Sometimes I do make an effort, and I do look better (and therefore feel better). I just don’t do it daily… I prefer to be practical and get the hell out of the house to try to be on time (it’s hard enough as it is!).
I’m not going to lie and say that I never feel that I look like crap (I’m very hard on myself in that way), but I rarely look at a mirror once I arrive and start my day.
With regards to make up, again, I keep it simple.
- I don’t want to over do it.
- I don’t want to look ‘too polished’
- I don’t usually feel like getting all dolled up…
- WHEN I DO – I’d arrive late… cause then I’d want a to have ‘perfect’ makeup.
I go for a simple: (Powder) + (Blusher) + Eyeliner + Mascara but these are optional – the only constant is Mascara, it’s the one thing I always have to wear.
There it is, my confession! I did not sugarcoat it… that’s just how I feel considering all the work that I usually have on my mind. I’d rather worry about that than my looks.
Do say hi if you see me around on campus!
I might be looking like crap, but I’m always friendly 🙂
