Won't let this blog die: A Life Update

Hey there! Long time no blog :)

Here I am again. Will I apologize for being M.I.A.? Will I make excuses that life got so busy and hectic I barely had time to create blog content? 

Yes, of course I will. What type of blogger would I be if I didn't?

First off, I apologize for not being active on this blog and I have been thinking a lot about what I want this blog to become. Sure, it is still my law student lifestyle blog but I feel like I definitely have not niched it down. I currently talk about law school, skincare, alignment and personal growth on here. I feel like I am all over the place so let's see where this goes and how I will manage to save my little space on the internet from crumbling into a failed passion project.

The life is update is this...

  • Life has gotten so busy. I mean, I'm in my third year of law school. What would you expect? Day in and out, I hit the books, get buried in a mountain of cases and drown in liters of delicious coffee. I am sleep-deprived and dehydrated on most days (Believe it or not, this water lover FORGETS to drink her water smh). On the weekends, if I'm allowed and able, I take long naps during the day, do as much laundry as I can, binge watch some shows and vlogs, spend time with my family, talk to my friends and do some retail therapy. 

         My best coping mechanism is not to even think of the stress. Instead of stressing over the work, I just do the work. Then after a long hard day, my body hits my bed and I'm like "Okay, let's do this again tomorrow." then I drift off to dreamland

  • New normal is difficult to get used to. We took advantage of the world we live in before and didn't bother to think when we washed our hands, where we put our hands or what is personal space. I am literally writing this after coming home from the mall where they would not let me in because I was wearing a mask but I forgot my face shield in the car. It was the most embarrassing and scary experience of my new normal life. Take note to self (and the world): Don't forget the essentials: face mask, face shield, hand sanitizer/rubbing alcohol, tissues/wipes.

  • I have been very consistent and patient with my skincare routine. I am absolutely loving the improvement on my skin. Skincare is life! Also, this means I will be posting a skincare routine soon.

  • Update on my health: I was rushed to the ER on June 30 and they found an infection in my kidney. I had to go through several blood tests, check ups and an ultrasound. Nothing seriously bad is happening with me, no deathly disease. Being sick in a pandemic is not the best thing. I have to take medicines daily and watch my diet but me being me, I am stubborn and still have a pack of medicine untouched. Don't worry, I'm working on it. #SelfCare

  • I've fallen madly insanely in love and happy with someone. The best part is that they are in love with me too. Have I found my life partner? Okay, let's not get too excited. Love moves in mysterious ways. I always believed in love because your girl is a hopeless romantic. Just when I wasn't looking, here he comes changing my world and serenading my heart. I am a very private person and don't have social media or post about every single detail of my life and everything I feel so talking about my new relationship here is something special to me.
That is all folks. Took me an hour to write this. Just needed to update on my blog what is happening in my life.

Love, Bella

  1. Choosing a lawyer is not just about choosing the best criminal lawyer. Yes, you want to find a good criminal lawyer but you want the best one for you. kuhnheap.com

  2. While I am saddened to hear that you've been hospitalized last year, I'm happy to know that you're happily in love with someone! Law school can be gruelling most of the time, but our life doesn't and shouldn't revolve on it. So, yeah, live, love, and laugh.

    I love your blog, by the way. I admire law students who can balance self care (e.g. skin care) with the type of lifestyle we have as students of law.
