There will be a lack of posts (err, more so than usual) for the next few weeks.
Perhaps I mentioned it here in passing, but if not, here’s the news: I will be moving to London for six months in September. While there, I decided to enroll in a couple of classes, to learn AutoCAD and Adobe InDesign. To be able to take these classes, I need to apply for a student visitor visa.
I only just started muddling through all the requirements, etc. needed for the visa. I leave for New York on September 18th, and I’ll be flying to London from there. Cutting it a bit close is an understatement.
While it is entirely my fault for putting it off for so long, it is understandably stressing me the fuck out. Blogging about new makeup I bought that I really don’t need is not very high on my list of priorities right now! (However, I can’t seem to get out of the headspace of wanting buy new things, even though I will be moving halfway across the world in less than a month’s time. This is exacerbating my anxiety. Good decisions are not my forte.)
On a related note, I’ve been working on a detailed post about the direction my blog will be going in. With the beauty blogging world so utterly oversaturated, it doesn’t make sense for me to compete with everyone else in the way of swatches and reviews of new releases, and the like. I just end up wasting money and acquiring more things that I neither need nor necessarily enjoy.
Anyway, wish me luck! Every single time I go to the UK, I’m asked a million questions about the purpose of my visit and when I mention I’m visiting my boyfriend, it’s almost as if alarm bells go off in the border control personnel’s head. I’m probably over thinking the whole thing, but I can’t help but worry about the chances of my visa to be approved. Even then, I would absolutely bet money on the fact that I’ll be given a hard time at customs, again. CUE MASSIVE ANXIETY.
