Where You Been Sis?
Whew Chile! The last few months were tough af months for me, and I thank you so much for standing by while I pulled myself deeper into my studies. School has definitely taken up all of my time. Nevertheless, I'm here...still standing. *cues Elton John*.
Let's do a recap of the last couple of months so that you know what I've been going through. I had this whole plan in action to have my posts planned out for the month of March so that I could post and still focus on school. Little did I know, my final project for my Commercial Photography class was presented to me a little earlier than expected. That, on top of writing papers, preparing speeches for Public Speaking class, working full-time, and maintaining my regular home life...shit got tough.
Skills USA was at the beginning of April. One goal I set out to accomplish was to hone in my skills to finalize my prints for the competition. I competed in two different categories: Photography and Promotional Bulletin Board. Unfortunately, I did not place in photography but my team placed 1st in Promotional Bulletin Board. Needless to say, I'll be representing the state of Louisiana in the national competition in late June. I'm proud I went for the experience, and please believe I'll be attending next year's competition and placing in photography as well.
The year of Yes continues for me. I made a point to say yes to every opportunity that comes my way. As a result, I'll be featured in my job's "Come See Me..." campaign this month and I'm so happy I did accepted it. It's a high honor, as I will be featured on billboards around my city and surrounding areas for the month of May. DOPE!!! I also showed some of my art work last month in an art show at my school. It was amazing! Receiving recognition for the hard work I've put in all semester long felt great.
May turned out to be a more laid back month but still just as challenging. I lost my spark and don't know how it happened but I'm back with a new motivation, new spark, a new reason to GET SHIT DONE!!! As always, thank you so much for sticking with me. We all have road blocks, and I'm no different. Stay tuned this month for more exciting posts. I've got some new topics and some fan favorites returning as well. Let your girl know what you want to see here on phoenixbeauty101.com! Also, be sure to follow my journey on all social media platforms.
