i apologize for my absence over the past week. remember when i said i was having a rough week laaast week? well, the following day i found out that my dad's uncle passed away. he was sick for a very long time so it was not completely unexpected but it still took a toll on my family. unfortunately, he's been sick since i was very young so i don't have many memories of him...but the ones i do have are great ones of him joking around and smiling.
the other day i came to a breaking point where i felt the need to assess e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. i have definitely been beating myself up too much - i know that i'm my own worst enemy when it comes to everything. i'm a perfectionist to the core and i've just been stressing myself out lately about things that i'm unable to control. thankfully though, i've been working through it and my dad has been my biggest supporter, so i've been feeling a lot better. i have come to realize that once in a while you need to slow down from the fast pace of life and just breathe a bit.
wow, well i wasn't even expecting to go in to that much detail so sorry for boring everyone :p .. but i will be back with normal posting probably within the next week. i have finals coming up next week and then i'm free for .. a week. haha. then i start with my summer course until the beginning of july. things are falling back in to place, as they always seem to do.
i also will be announcing the winner of the sex and the city giveaway by monday - i'll probably just post it along with shoes to beat the monday blues. if you didn't already enter, i'll extend the time to enter until then.
hope you all had a fabulous week and i'll see you soon! :p
