Where have I been?
A lot of you may be wondering why I have been so missing in action on my blog these past few weeks and on my Instagram posts so I want to share with you all what I have been up to lately and what my plans are going onward. I truly have been missing blogging and have decided that I need to get back on the grind… so here I am!
As many of you may know through my previous posts, I am a full time student at UCLA and am graduating in a couple weeks from today Insha’Allah! I am so excited to graduate but at the same time I have been so busy with my classes, graduation preparation, and finals that are coming up this next week. I have also been working at my part-time job in retail, leaving me almost no time for myself on the weekends. When I am not at school or work, I am trying to catch up with studying, hanging out with friends, or planning the rest of my upcoming weeks.
Aside from all my school and work commitments, I have been trying to work on my self-care routine. As busy as I get, I have been trying to make sure to take time out of the week at least once to re-energize myself, relax, or spend time with my family. Trying to have a balance in life is really important and I am glad that I have been working on that lately. Never forget that you need to take care of yourself before anything!
I spent this past Memorial Day weekend at work, taking advantage of those amazing holiday weekend sales, studying, and relaxing at home. 🙂
What are my upcoming plans moving forward?
As of now, I am trying to focus on studying for my upcoming final exams this next week and the week after! After finals, I am looking forward to my two graduation commencement ceremonies at UCLA. I am so excited to finally be graduating from my dream university. However, I have also been stressing about my life after graduation and what my next steps in life will be. I already have some things planned for this summer and beyond!
Aside from my graduation and career stress, I am definitely planning to be focusing on my blog more. It has been this ongoing desire of mine in the back of my head to keep improving on my blog after graduation… so guess what?! I am going to be doing just that. 🙂
I want to truly thank every single one of you who have been reading my blog and has stuck around with me through it all – you know who you are!! I appreciate the patience and kind words that everyone has been sending my way. Feel free to comment below and let me know what type of content you are looking forward to seeing from me! I will start posting blog posts every Friday now so stay tuned.
Keep smiling y’all!😊
