Finding a Happy Medium

Growing up, I was always taught that when you leave the house you look nice. This is something that I have implemented into my life…until recently.

All throughout high school, and most of college I have showered first thing when I have woken up. I have always tried to look my best and have consistently done my hair and make-up.

Last year, I moved in with my lovely friend Audrey. Now Audrey at the time was having some shower issues. She only showered once a week. With me showing seven days a week at the time and her once a week, we constantly made fun of each other.

Sadly, by the end of the school year, we had worn off on each other. Now, I don’t mean to say that I was only showing once a week, I was showing just about every day still, but I was not trying to look my best anymore. I officially became lazy. Hats and sweatshirts took over my wardrobe, and my make-up was quick and messy.

Currently, I am in a dilemma. School is the one place that I meet people, but sadly, I don’t get ready for it. I have early classes, and that extra fifteen minutes of sleep means the world to me. My motto on life the past few years has been “I don’t care what anyone thinks about me, because honestly, they don’t think about me that much.” So, where do I find a balance? I hate that I have become this scrubby person, but I love that I can throw on a hat and not care and go. Who is going to want to date me when I look bad at school everyday? (I do try to clean up nicely on dates.) I am looking for a happy medium. If you have reached it, please let me know. I am desperate to know your secret!

  1. I shower at night and put on my makeup and do my hair in the morning. It's worked pretty well for me.
    Chin up buttercup!
