I can do more when I'm busy

Hello long time friends!
Always happy to be back & blogging once in a while =)
Today, I wanted to talk about something I realized and learned about myself. [And it applies to others I know as well]

I'm usually busy 90% of the time. I have to go to school which takes up a lot of my time, I have to go to work, I have to squeeze in making Youtube videos every week, I need time to do my hw & projects, work out, run errands, and other miscellaneous things. I'm always sad that I never have time to hang out with my close friends or do more things that I'd like to do. I always felt like if I had more time, I could do so much more.
Although that still stands true, what I also realized is that I get more things done when my day is packed & busy.

"If you want something, ask a busy person to do it. The more you do, the more you can do." 
- Ball, Lucille.

I see that on twitter all the time, and it's so true! I may be busy but I'm knocking things off my list and doing what I need to do.
I just had a mini 3 day vacation from school & work. Besides some schoolwork, I technically didn't have to do anything else. And I didn't. No cleaning, no working out, no grocery shopping. All because I was in that lazy mindset. I wanted to rest but also get some things done. But did I? No. And now I have all those things that I have to do crammed into this weekend which makes me laugh at myself and without a doubt, I know they will be done.

With all that being said, don't get me wrong, I'm still looking forward to mini vacations, especially ones where I have NO schoolwork to worry about. Ah, a little hiatus is nice to recuperate oneself. But, knowing that about myself, I'm going to work on not pushing everything for later and doing them when I have time to lighten my load.

The fall semester is halfway over and I'm super excited for the holidays! Sounds weird, but I'm also looking forward to no school & more work! Money money money.
That's all for now! Until next time,

Creme De Couture by Sigma Beauty! + Coupon Code!

Just wanted to update you guys about what's new with Sigma Beauty!
They just came out with their Creme De Couture collection inspired by macarons!

Extremely beautiful bright colors that are a bit odd for the arrival of fall but still amazing nonetheless.

The palette by itself is an affordable $32.
The blushes run for $12 each.
The entire collection which includes the palette + the 3 blushes are $55.

I'm mostly interested in the palette and am thinking about getting it. Ahhh, I really can't resist those colors! I'll probably use most of them next spring though...so I'm not sure if I should get it. 

I think the price of the palette at $32 is very reasonable. Most palettes are usually $39-$42 so they are a bit on the cheaper side!

AND, with my coupon code, you will receive 10% off of your entire purchase + get a free gift if you spend $30 or more! Just enter LJW2013 when you checkout. More bang for your buck. You're welcome.

I'm TOO Productive

So today was my day off after working a long week at work.
The first half of the day was spent at the dentist. [Where I was told I had dead teeth and needed root canals, crowns, and a tooth extraction in my gums and all that horrible stuff *sigh*]. It never ends with the teeth stuff I tell ya.
Aside from all that depressing stuff, I spent the 2nd half of the day in bed and on my laptop. It is sad to say, I can't remember the last time I spent a day off in bed doing nothing. I'm always having to do soo much stuff on my days off; running errands, filming, cleaning, organizing, planning, etc. I had plans to do some of that today but I was feeling so lazy [and reluctantly gave in to my bf's wise words] that I decided to push those things back and just RELAX today.
I'm one of those people that if I'm not being productive, I feel like I wasted my day. That can be a good but also a bad thing. I NEED TO CHILL OUT!
Ah, but it's easier said than done. 
I can't help but to feel a little bad that I just laid in bed for hours >_<
But, I realized that school is about to start in 2 days and I'm back at work tomorrow, therefore, I don't think I can afford to lounge around on a day off anytime soon. 
So, I told myself to start planning a day once every few weeks to do absolutely nothing, see no one, pamper, and de-stress myself. One of these days I will book a massaging session =)
I wish I had the whole day today but I shall not be greedy. Time flew by today, it's already 7:30pm, ugh.
I wonder what other people do on their days off. 
To end my rambling, I will post some therapeutic pictures for you to gaze at and hopefully give yourself a nice peaceful day off as well!

Living a lighter life

Hi blogger!
I have not blogged in MONTHS! I have missed blogging so much yet had no desire to blog. I felt bummed that I wasn't enthusiastic to write nonsense on here the way I used to be. But I'm glad this is still here for random days like this when I just want to write for the heck of it! 
A few things have been new since the last time you heard from me.

- I'm waiting on my Associate's degree in Business Admin & starting at a new college in less than 3 weeks to get my bachelor's in Management! Sooo anxious & excited for my business classes! So much I want to learn, not looking forward to the homework haha.
- I'm back at ULTA! Didn't think I'd ever go for round 2 but things worked their way around and I'm doing what I love once again. This time it's at another location, though. Things have changed since the last time I worked there but it's all good. Man, getting my discount again never felt so gooood.
- I'm still uploading videos on Youtube and super loving it! I wish I could do it full-time but I'm working on it! I just hit 600 subscribers earlier today =) http://www.youtube.com/SoAnLoves
- Been on an exercise schedule which is flexible enough to fit my lifestyle but not flexible to the point where I'm not benefitting from it. I like my body, know what I want to work on, and having more confidence just makes you happier overall!
- I've been cooking a bit more often. Don't really have a reason lol. Just want to practice, I guess. It's a good feeling when I get to add a new recipe to my mental list of things that I can cook! #wifeystatus !
- I'm always working on living life positively and full of happiness and am always on a soul searching adventure with myself. Lately, I've been feeling so good about everything. Even when I run into problems, it takes me less time to brush it away. I feel so much lighter & my general state of mind is on a higher, happier level too. That's kind of hard to explain. I read it in a book a while back haha.

So basically what I'll be doing for the next 2 and a half weeks is work, work out, make Youtube videos, do random things that I enjoy, and try to cherish this time before the heavy duty schoolwork starts and my schedule becomes suddenly packed. I need to see my friends! *tear* I miss them so much. 
Honestly, sometimes I run on a tight schedule that I set for myself and it's hard to break out of it to hang out with friends and when I do I become motivated to get out more often and be more social. Then, when I'm home again, I just go back to the routine =_= Is anyone else like that?

Lately, my bank account has been taking a beating. Besides from suffering with random fees and payments for school, I've also been buying a lot of stuff. But they make me happy =( Really need to scale back and save more. Just so many things I like! I'm surprised I'm not broke. It's because I'm super saavy at getting the best deals if I do say so myself ;)

Well that's it for now. I don't like having a blog post full of just writing so I'll be including some random recent pictures. Bye!

My New Galaxy S4!

I love having a new phone! It's funny how on July 1 I finally got my hands on the Galaxy S3 and EXACTLY 10 months later on May 1, I now have the S4. Many thanks to my awesomely nice bf for getting it for me <3

I was still loving my baby S3 even though a new one was coming out, [which of course I wanted but wasn't really expecting to get it as soon as it came out] except there was a small problem with the texting on my phone that I just could NOT fix which made me want the S4 even more.

The bigger screen barely makes a difference appearance-wise but watching Youtube on it is just heaven!
I'm not into super large screens so this one is perfect for me.

I also LOVE that the S4 is thinner and slightly lighter...? It definately feels less rounded and more square, like a bar of chocolate and I love how it feels in my hand.

I love seeing them next to each other. They are best friends. 
I am just having a blast using the S4 right now and will probably love it until another new phone comes out.
Just bought the Zagg Invisible Shield in HD yesterday =D
Waiting for the case to come in the mail in a week or so, super excited! 

My sister has a Galaxy S2 so here are all 3 side by side! 

Look at how they progressively got bigger as time went on lol

Body Inspiration!

So happy the weather is warm & sunny now. Gives me so much energy & motivation!
I'm really looking forward to the summer. Even though the bf won't be around =( But I will make an effort to spend time with the few friends that I have =)

Lately, I have been doing a lot of working out in my free time!
Most of the time I do toning exercises and once or twice a week I will run on the treadmill for some fat burning cardio! I can already feel & see that my body is toning up fast.

Working out is such a great stress reliever. Plus, gotta get in shape since it's bikini season! I don't even know if I'm going to step in a pool =___= but who cares, I'm doing this for myself ^_^

Since I'm more active, my metabolism has gone even more crazy and I'm constantly hungry >_<
But, when I eat, I don't feel too bad since I know I have worked for it and will continue to work it off! Muhahahahaha!

Here are some pictures of what I personally would like to achieve for you to get a better idea:

Dat stomach............

Dat ass...........................

those legs...................

and those arms................

The Victoria's Secret girls are most likely photoshopped but you get the idea! I'm also going to try bike riding...don't know where to ride to but yeah...HAHA.

If you haven't seen my healthy snacks video, here it is:

New video coming out tomorrow as well =)
Stay healthy & work out!

The people of Woodbridge

Sometimes, I feel stuck. I've heard many people say that they hate Woodbridge, that they want to go to a new place, yadda yadda. I can somewhat understand that. The difference is I love Woodbridge; it's a nice place and it's my home. But I am tired of the people. Not my friends or kind aquaintances, just the mean and annoying people that I keep seeing.

I feel like a fish in a tank full of the same kind when I want to be out in the ocean with all different types of species. I grew up in Woodbridge, so I have seen the same faces year after year. Either we spent many years in school together or I've served you from one job to another. And most of the time, the faces I see are people I don't really like. I don't have that many friends because not many people live with good intentions and/or have their heads on straight anymore. Or they are just plain stupid. I want to meet new people who have the same interests/mindset as me. That's partly why I started a Youtube channel; to expose myself to a bigger part of the world and meet different types of people that I know are out there. It's sad but I feel like my Youtube/blogging friends could be better friends than some people that I see in real life. I can't just get up and move right now, and even if I did, I might be in the same situation in a few years.

Even now, I'm in college and I still see a bunch of high school classmates around. If we were all to go to our high school renunion, it wouldn't be as fun and everyone would be like, "Oh hey....I've seen you around here a few times already..."

I'm not really complaining or wanting to move far away because really, what can I expect people to do, change? I can't make them. It's a small town, we are bound to run into each other. I just wish that more of us could get along because I'm sure a lot of people feel the same way I do and dislike each other.
I am always up to creating new friendships but I'm sorry, the self-induced depressed, angry, idiotic, and ungrateful whiners can stay away.

Spring Cleaning

Now that it's almost Spring, the days are slightly longer, the weather a bit warmer, and me a lot happier.
Spring cleaning is not just for your closet/house, it is great for the soul as well!
This past winter has been a harsh one for me.
But to make things short, I weasled out what I wanted to change and things are better now.

After months, days, and hours of stress & contemplation, I decided to let go of my bank job. It was a hard decision because trust me, working at a bank has its perks. But I decided that I was never going to be content unless I left it for something else. It was just not an ideal work environment.

I also came face to face with a past interest of starting a youtube channel and just went for it.
Still can't believe I actually did it. It's a lot of hard work but I love how it feels when I post a finished product.

Here's my most recent video!

Show some love & subscribe =)

I have many things to blog about, so glad I'll have more time for it now!
Sometimes, I forget to constantly fill my life with positive things but when I remember and put in some effort, life seems more peaceful & I feel light.
I'm so happy the cold is slowly going away, it's like coming out of a dark slumber and I'm ready to be revived! Bright colors everywhere!

I'm going to leave with a random picture of me hehehe

Balancing Two Worlds

I keep forgetting to blog =___=

Sorry! I have so much on my mind!
School so far has been pretty boring.... in some classes it is so hard not to space out and pay attention.
I'm really trying to keep up the good grades and soak in as much information as I can but I have no passion for school. I always want to do everything else but think about school.

So, I'm trying really hard not to lose focus of the main priority.

BAM random photo of my face.

As some of you may know, I recently just started my own youtube channel that I'm super excited about and want to spend all my time prepping for & filming but I can't =(((( Other things like work & school have to come first. What a drag

I've also been shopping every other week, it's like filling in for my bf not being here *cry* 
19 more days and I will have a best friend to be with me again! For a few weeks before he leaves again.....

So my life feels like it's being torn in 2. One world that I love and have fun in and one that is boring as heck but is a necessity and more important! BLAH!

Does anyone else ever feel the same with your hobbies?
