How do you make money?
Hard work and constant exhaustion…
I’m currently a designer and working professional makeup artist. I’m also trying to put more of my eggs into the content creator basket because I would like to quit a job (or two) and do this fulltime while back in school.
Back in school? For what?
NURSING! I’m currently finishing my science courses I didn’t take with my first degree so I can apply for Nursing school in the near future.
My first go around in college I knew I was going to study art or go into the medical field. After finishing art school and being flung into the streets with my bright eyes and hopes I quickly realized that I love art with everything within my whole being but I do not want to continue working professionally in it for a wealth of reasons. Also last spring my nana fell extremely ill and we almost lost her. Her almost three month stay in the hospital and physical rehabilitation really opened my eyes and I was like, “Holy shit, this is what I’m meant to do.” I do not believe in the “everything happens for a reason” thing, but I honestly have never felt so on the “right path” in my whole life. So yeah, at 25 I’m taking core science courses with kids who literally graduated – from high school – 6 months ago. They think I’m very wise, joke’s on them.
So, you regret that first degree?
Not at all! I would say out of 100 I do not regret it 1%. I love art and it is still very much an active participant in my life. Also, nothing teaches you discipline, time management, self awareness, focus, and attention to detail like art school does. The whole ass world can literally catch fire at any moment (and it just might these days,) and I am confident I will remain calm and problem solve my way out of whatever is happening. Also art school delivered me the best friends I’ve ever had in my whole life AND is a huge reason why I started making youtube videos and being on the internet and you see where I’m going with this.
Do you date/have a boyfriend?
I do date but currently not right now or in the foreseeable future. I still will give you any and all advice I have for you on dating, especially as a plus-size woman since like 50% of the population doesn’t understand that as a concept since biologically only skinny people find love and happiness. GIRL, I need to stay chill. Also no boyfriend now, if that changes I’m sure I’ll mention it but I’m not one of those people that involves her relationships with her business. Ya feel me?
How do you stay so positive?
I’m not positive all the time, I just try and stay that way. When others try and bring me down, I don’t listen because I love myself and am happy. People even have shitty things to say about Beyoncé, BEYONCÉ. So I keep that in mind and the petty opinions of others just slide right off. I’m loved, I am moving forward in life, and the sun is always there even on cloudy days.
