My life over the last two days has consisted of 8 hours at my normal job + 4 hours at my new job. Two 12 hour work days in a row has left me feeling exhausted, but I definitely can’t complain. I just started a sort of jack-of-all-trades position for a family with whom I’m super close. They live in a big country house with lots of diy and maintenance projects that they don’t have time to complete, so they hired me to help! It’s an amazing fit for me because it’s flexible, pays more than the on-campus jobs for which I was going to apply, and I get to work around people I love! :) Today’s project was sanding these two tables that I’m refinishing. I’m kind of looking forward to gaining experience in all of these practical, hands-on ways. I think it will really expand my abilities.

now that you're off accutane, has your skin become oily? i hear that happens and i want to prepare if it will happen!

It is the same or a little less oily than it was before I went on isotretinoin. It is definitely not more oily than before, but it might seem kinda weird for a while after having such dry skin for so long.

Hey there. I thought I briefly saw a post of yours about your anxiety the other day, but now can't see it. I wanted to message you at the time but couldn't think of what to say. I just wanted you to know that even though you clearly have a lot going on (my goodness, your college work!) it's ALWAYS worth having the conversation with a doctor if you're feeling anxious - even if it's just to have the conversation with someone. Your 'Daily Journey' is much more than skin deep. Take care (:

Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. I do struggle a lot with anxiety, but I took the post down because I don’t want this to be a negative blog. I have a doctor appointment next week and am planning on discussing my options concerning anxiety treatments at that time.
