It’s kinda weird and fills me with pride at the same time when I watch my sister work.
Sometimes it reminds me of how unsuccessful and lost I am when it comes to my career.
My dad is now also suggesting I look into doing nails for a living and it’s not sitting well with me at all. The beauty industry is not ideal for people like me. I do not like touching people, that’s not me. Do I really have to go get a job where I know I won’t be happy?
I mean sure, desperate times call for desperate measures but I thought for sure I’d have found another source of income before having to resort to that.
I feel like I’m a step closer to monetizing my blog though.
When I start earning an income again, I’m going to put it into getting my ideas off the ground. Now that it looks like I’m going back home, maybe I could start working on the merch I was making myself again and getting it ready to sell…
I have spent practically the entire day working on the blog. It was a little frustrating when my laptop fucked out. I had to re-edit a long-ass blog post for SEO.
The book One of Us Is Lying ended so unpredictably – I loved it!
I am so behind on my reading goal but at least I still have time. The next book I’m starting is Knife by Jo Nesbo. I’m looking forward to getting into it…
I am feeling more confident about reaching my reading goal now!
All in all, I am so happy that I decided to come to Cape Town, even if I don’t get to stay and live out the remainder of my years here. Who knows, maybe I could come back in the near future… I haven’t left yet but I’m just saying.
I was going to chill outside tonight because it’s so warm but it smells AWFUL so I scrapped that idea.
