SAH Diaries | extended spring break, painting with a twist, study with me

happy sunday loves!
i know that i missed a post last week, but i was really struggling with studying and trying to complete my lectures. luckily, i finished my last exam and practical last week, and all i have left is my final!

for today’s blog post, i wanted to do something a little easier, since i already had the footage and content recorded. this week, i want to share with you some clips from march 16th — 22nd, during my extended spring break. if you weren’t aware, a lot of schools and universities extended their spring break for at least another week to discuss precautions for the current global situation.

i plan to upload a lot more vlogs in the future, and hope to get caught up very soon. if you would like to leave me any advice on how to improve, or any constructive criticism, please comment below or send me a private message!

with love, joslyn

Apps that are Helping Me Survive Self-Isolation

hello loves, and welcome to this week’s post~
i know that i am posting on a monday, but this is due to the fact that Easter was yesterday, and my procrastination got the best of me. although i did not do anything special for Easter this year, i was chained to my desk doing assignments, lectures, and readings.

anyways, this week’s post is dedicated to all of the apps that have helped me get through this challenging time. outside of your typical social media outlets (such as instagram, twitter, and snapchat), there are other applications that have been keeping me preoccupied, and have prevented me from just laying in bed all day.

this blog post will be highlighting six apps which i utilize between all of my apple products:

I Did a Thing + Life Update

hello loves, and welcome back to M. A. N.~
i hope you’re doing well, during this time, and that you’re staying safe and healthy.

it has been about a month since i last uploaded a blog post, and i sincerely apologize. with everything that is going on, i needed time to adjust, and wanted to make sure that i was okay with the changes before getting back into the swing of posting on the regular.

if you haven’t noticed — i purchased my domain! after five years, i finally own my domain, and have access to many more features that WordPress provides. so, be on the look out for the changes that will be made! with that being said, i would appreciate if you remain patient with me as i finalize the schedule, design, mood, color scheme, etc.

in today’s post, i will be going into detail about the changes i would like to make with M. A. N., and i will also update you with everything that is currently going on in my life. this update will explain why i have been distant for the past month, and i hope that it will justify my sudden absence.

Let’s Talk About BTS, Baby

happy sunday loves~

i decided to take a two week break because i had my first exam and practical recently. it is important to me that i do really well in this class, so i really needed to focus and study hard.

with that being said, i have another exam tomorrow, but couldn’t pass up on another week of blogging, or else i’ll make it into a bad habit (again).

so, for today’s post, it is going to be a really easy one! in today’s blog post, i am going to be talking a little bit about BTS’s new album Map of the Soul: 7.

Stationary Haul #1 // AliExpress

i filmed a stationary haul a few months ago, and i finally finished editing it! i am super proud of this video, even though it is a more relaxed and chill video. in this video, i showcased all the stationary items that i bought from aliexpress.

links to all products and timestamps are located in the video’s description box!

i hope you have a fun super bowl sunday!

Get to Know Me (again)

happy wednesday loves!
this week, i was wanting to upload a haul, but i need a bit more time to finalize some details. i am really excited to post that video — so get ready for that post next week!

today, i will keep it simple and do an “about me” tag. it has been a while since i have done one, and i think it is appropriate to do one with my current reboot:

2020 update — trying to get my ish together

hello loves~
welcome back to my blog!
i was planning on doing something more “inspiring” for this post, but let’s be honest… we all knew that wasn’t going to happen :’)

instead, i wanted to do something more laid back and chill — hence why i am writing this live on january 17th at 12:30pm.

for 2020 one of my goals is really get back into the swing of things. at this point, i have been out of school for 8 months, and i am dying of boredom and just tired of my daily monotonous routine. when i was in university, i thought the monotony was bad — but i was kidding myself: i am currently living such a repetitive and uninspiring life.

if you would like to hear about my recent life struggles, i invite you to watch my youtube update:

*a/n: someone please help me…*

although you can’t see what has been going on behind the scenes, i have been trying really hard to be productive at the start of this year. i started my bullet journal for the year, started planning for my blog and youtube channel, and organizing my life more efficiently.

in terms of my blog, i think wednesday are the best days to upload because it gives me time to work ahead, get my editing done, finish some last-minute details, etc.

this semester, i am retaking a class that can dictate everything for me in regards to my academic career — so i am really trying to focus and be productive with that class. with that being said, i think posting once a week is the best thing for me right now. it will allow me to prioritize and just enjoy the process of creating without stressing me out, and taking a toll on my mind and soul.

i do plan on officiating my domain, but i need to prove to myself that i can keep up with the pressures of life and maintaining my hobbies on the side. therefore, i will work really hard on getting my -ish together. in reality, there should be no excuse: i am out of school (for the most part), i have had plenty of time to sit around and do nothing, and i am honestly so tired of just sitting around and being an unproductive potato.

i think i will go ahead and wrap up this post because i feel like i can babble for forever and keep repeating the same thoughts — but that’s reserved for my journal :’)

i will definitely see you guys next wednesday with some REAL content! i hope you will continue to be patient and understanding. for those who have stuck around for the past few years, i sincerely appreciate you for sticking in there. i know i have not been the best at this “influencer” thing but i am honestly working on it!

till next time~
with love, joslyn

What is it Really Like to Live with Your Significant Other?

hello lovelies~

Happy Saturday, I hope all is good and well!

It has been roughly three months since I have moved in with my boyfriend, and it has been good to say the least. Honestly, I was really worried that our living styles would not align properly, even though we have been together for seven years, and practically went through many life changes together.

In today’s post, I will be talking about my experiences to date – both good and ugly. I will also include a few words of advice (based off my experience) in attempt to help ease your worries of moving in with your significant other, or to help make living with your significant other more doable.

Post-Grad Update

hello lovelies and happy sunday!
I hope you have been healthy, high-spirited, and caring towards others. It has been a long while since I lasted posted (I believe it has been roughly four months).
Since my last update, many things have changed, and I am excited to share them with you! So, I hope you can take the time to go down memory lane with me! If not, I think I summarized everything in the vlog below, which was posted almost a month ago. If you would like to be up-to-date, please subscribe and follow my social media outlets!
