The Art of Making Friendships

My partner once told me that friends do not have to match you perfectly. Hearing this made me reflect on the art of making friendships, how over the years I have learned that adjusting your expectations is one step away from loneliness.

As a teenager, I was ridden with judgment. To the point where I avoided being friends with people if they did not match my ideal. I was worried about my own self-image, therefore I kept away from people I classed as “rebels”.

I kept away from the people who drank alcohol because, at the time, I believed that drinking was bad. I kept away from those who could not hold an intelligent conversation, not thinking that everyone is worthy of a conversation.

People are good at different things – the teenage me was too judgemental to figure that out. Where did this judgment lead?

How Much is My Face Worth? Quick Everyday Makeup Look

Hello, greetings, how are you doing today?  

I thought I will do something fun and see how much my 'everyday face' costs. Let's face it (AHH LOVE ACCIDENTAL PUNS), I don't wear makeup that often. Most of the time, I don't have time for it - I'm either rushing to work or to university.  Creating makeup looks is so much fun, it lets you to express yourself, enhance your features. On the day that I was putting this look that I'm about to show you, I had a driving lesson, went into town to do some errands and had a lovely red velvet cake with my friend. But enough rambling, let's do this!

It’s likely that if you are a blogger, interested in blogging or social media in general, you have come across the phrase ‘consistency is key’. Consistency is the building block that leads to more views, success, and recognition. Consistent creators build trust of their audiences, this trust may manifest in returning readers or high levels of affiliate sales. While success can determine whether creators are doing well in their work, I wonder whether strict consistency is worth it. In this post, I will be discussing my thoughts on blogging and consistency.
