It's been a while

I was looking through my computer and stumbled upon this blog that was active long ago. Looking through some of my old posts I realized how much I have changed over the years. Since my last post, I have successfully completed two years of university, made some great friends (even a boyfriend), and have learned a lot (not just about NMRs and antibiotic resistance). So here are 3 things I have learned in the past couple years:

1. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is the only way you'll grow. Through most of high school, I was very shy and only had a couple of good friends. I struggled with talking to new people and was always worried about what they thought of me. When I started university though I used it as a way of starting fresh and becoming a better version of myself. I'm not saying it's easy but it is definitely worth it.

2. Its okay to fail sometimes. First year actually wasn't too bad for me but when second year came around I spread myself too thin and did not do as great as I had hoped. At first, I was very disappointed but I realized that I needed to stop being so critical of myself and just work harder next time. There is no use for dwelling on the past all you can do is move forward.

3. Friendships aren't always easy. In high school, you are always with your friends whether it's in class, during lunch, or hanging out at each other's houses. Once you leave, especially if you move somewhere knew its difficult to stay in contact and plan around everyone's schedules. It's important to put in the effort and not give up as soon as things get hard.

That is just a short list with plenty more to come. I may post some of my old stuff that I never got around to doing. Other than that this is mostly just a place for me to write about life. If anyone is starting university and has any questions or is currently attending and wants to share their experience feel free to leave a comment.

Lasting Finish matte lipsticks by Kate Moss

I am absolutely in love with this lipstick. Let's start off with the fact that its super long lasting. I can actually still see it on my wrist from when I did swatches.  Like many other matte lip products it can be a bit drying, especially the dark red, but its nothing a little lip balm can't fix. Also, it is so pigmented, there is no need for more than 2 coats. It comes in loads of different shades and do not even get me started on how good these smell.
       The dark red one is shade 107. Sadly they don't have names, only numbers. It is quite hard to wear since it's a bit out of my comfort zone but I still absolutely love it and if you're in the market for a new red I highly suggest this one.       The next one is a coral in shade 32 and I think it would be amazing for summer. A little tip, if you want to go for a more natural look put some lip balm under it, then apply a little bit of the lipstick and then finish it off with another layer of lip balm. P…

Reading Week

With the stress of school off my shoulders for reading week, I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to make a post. Things are going relatively well and I find myself actually enjoying what I'm learning, which is something I am not very familiar with.  I also find myself watching a lot of Grey's Anatomy to my grades peril. It has me wondering what I'm going to do when I graduate. Will I go into research, do a masters, go to med school... (probably not the last one)? It's one of those things I've never understood, how people know exactly what they want to do. The only thing that I do know is that I want to help people and really have a positive impact on someone's life.
     In other news, I got a little pet. She's a cute tiny hamster who keeps me up at night running on her wheel and chewing anything she can find. But overall, it's nice to have some company.
     Anyway, that's enough of my procrastination, I should get back to work…
