chroniclesofshe Happy 4th! (The longer you look at this pic the hulk-ier my arm on his shoulder looks, and his head looks just so much bigger than mine, and I mean, get a load of our cheesy poses) 1w

chroniclesofshe For the last few months, I've been working as props master for a low budget film in my spare time, in addition to being a college student, working this nanny gig, moving, and being a well-rounded human being (that last one is a real time consumer). It's funny how when you can no longer devote your spare time to mindless or rejuvenating activities how all your regular time feels a lot more stressful. Right? It's been an amazing opportunity but, man, are college students stretched thin(ner than they would like to be I totally understand low income single moms and entire populations of people are busier/have it worse than me). I'm an ocean-breeze-loving, slow-moving, slow-to-wake-up, take-it-easy, road-trip-loving, simple life kind of gal. If I claim to be extremely busy, chances are I'm still way less busy than a lot of you. I like a slow, simple life.

So I've been reminding myself to not quit during this extra busy I-really-want-to-quit period of time and to keep working hard because I believe that it always pays off, and sometimes a bout of too much busyness and serious hard work are good for a person. And after these extra projects are over, I will resume my simple college student lifestyle of road-trip-dreaming, yoga in the mornings, hours and hours of Netflix in the evenings, nanny gig on the side, simple life lifestyle that I've really grown to love. In the mean time, my mantra is, "DON'T QUIT."

chroniclesofshe A stack of boxes a mile high should be a curious kitty's dream, right? The twerp has had no interest. I had to set him up there for the photo. He has no idea what he's missing and that tomorrow it will all be gone. 4w
