So, this clock of mine has started ticking…Its sound is very faint, and far off in the distance.I do seem to hear its tick tock more clearly when I receive a birth announcement in the mail, or when I scroll down my newsfeed and see five more of my friends announce to the world, “We’re expecting! The biology behind all this just seems so messed up. I’m just not ready to make a baby!! As I inch closer to my 30’s all of these new kinds of unprompted questions have started to circle around my head… I mean, I know I can’t be the only one feeling this cloud of weird, invisible pressure… Or am I? Am I crazy? Have I lost my miiiiind!? I’m just not ready!!! Kids are in the future, but there is no rush for me. (I am aware you first need a man to grow a baby, and I’m in no rush to land one of those either 😉 ) I look forward to my eventual journey to motherhood. Eventually – I’ll elaborate on that later.
In the meantime, I’m just a single girl, living on her own in manhattan, trying to accomplish my dreams one day at a time.
Call me cliche, but what they say is really true “if you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere.” BUT, Don’t mistake this for some ‘Sex and the City’ spin-off. Manhattan is almost nothing like Carrie describes it. It’s a little more magical, a lot less clean, and I take public transportation because I can’t afford to take a cab everywhere all the time. Come on, Carrie’s salary as a writer living in Manhattan must have been in the six-figure range to be able to afford her kind of lifestyle. I guess 100$ was worth more out here in those days… Whenever I can afford a pair of Manolos, not use the subway, and still be able to afford the rent on a place like hers, I’ll finally say, “I made it” (That, and I’m not running around after any boys nowadays – The only thing I’m probably running after is a margarita – it’s summer, okay?! 🙂 )
I’m a makeup artist by day, and a professional multitool when I’m not at my day job. I absolutely love what I do, and I have been very lucky in being able to share that passion with others. I live to encourage women and people from all walks of life to believe in themselves and I have an amazing outlet in which I’ve been able to do so. With hard work and perseverance anything is possible!
I’d love to have you join me in my ‘ultimate (eventual) quest’ into motherhood!
Hey! Maybe I’ll teach you how to perfectly execute a smokey eye too 😉
