sick of being sick

I haven't been sick in about 2 years. Worse than that, I haven't taken a day off from work for feeling sick. I only took a personal day once since I had this job. So why do I feel so guilty? I think I am the kind of person who has an insane hard work ethic to where I feel guilty and take things so hard when I am not there in the office. I recently found out that I will not be changing locations at work, which means that I will have more time to focus on youtube and blogging, and the things that make me happy. I love my job so much, but I also love youtube and blogging and writing. I am torn between the life I would love to have and the life that is "safe". I am very blessed and thankful to have a job during these rough times. I am also thankful that I have a loving girlfriend and a nice apartment home. I also have a one year old car and have very little credit card debt. I really don't have anything to complain about. SO I am sitting here with a fever, barely able to speak, and a cough that is awful. My whole body aches, and all I can think about it how bad I feel about having to call in sick to work 2 days in a row. Even my own doctor told me that it is good to have a personal "mental health" day. But I can't seem to get my mind to stop focusing on the stress and guilt and just RELAX. It is going to be hard for me to heal fully when I can't stop thinking. Does anyone else deal with this? I am curious to know. xoxo gleamogirljoelle

ipsy bag sucks

I guess you could say that the title says it all. I was, once again, not happy with the ipsy bag. I had it back when it first came out and was called "myglam". After seeing a few videos about the bag, I thought that I should resubscribe, and see if I could get in on the good bags. I was wrong. Last month's bag I was allergic to one product ( that isn't their fault)and the rest of the things were just OK. I loved the Mica get liner. So I guess 1 out of 5 products was good. For $10, why not. I got my March bag today and WTF?! First off I get a face mister spray that made me sneeze. Then I get too miniature eye shadows that are from Yabi that are basically one use only. And then a little magnetic pallet that the mini yabi shadows go in. And lastly, a pack of makeup remover wipes. I am hesitant about trying the wipes due to my allergies. The bag itself it totally cute with anchors on it. Again, 1 out of 5 products are good. Part of me wants to hit "unsubscribe" now, but I have this feeling that the second I do, the April bag will be better. Ugh. Overall, if I had to rate this bag, 1 out of 5 stars. I will keep you all updated with the contents of the bags in the future. For now, I can spare the $10 a month...but we will see. xoxo gleamogirljoelle
