As you all know from my life update last month, grad school is done and I’m on the hunt for a job in the field of Public Health. I feel like what no one tells you is how exhausting hunting for a job is. It seriously feels like a full-time job that requires patience, persistence, and a whole lot of prayer.

If you’re like me and just too lazy to be bothered with makeup every morning, this lazy girl’s guide to a morning beauty routine is perfect for you! (more…)
