I woke up with a swollen lip.
Never in my life have my lips swollen. I have no allergies, I’ve never been bitten – I did burst my lip open once, but I was about four-years-old and can’t remember that. But there I was this morning, with the right side of my bottom lip twice this size of the left, and with no idea why.
I quickly Google’d what to do, and within 5 minutes of waking, I was rubbing coconut oil onto my face and cursing the sheer amount of back luck I’ve been having the last few days.
This – along with some tactful make-up tricks – did make the swelling a wee bit better, and I looked just about acceptable enough to head into uni.
It was my first day at uni in over a week, so already I was feeling quite proud of myself. And then I hung around an extra four hours after class to go to the library. Top student over here. I managed to get quite a few things started that I’ve been meaning to do for ages (and starting is the hardest part, right?). And somewhere amongst all this motivation, , I decided that it was finally time to make a new Instagram account for this blog.
Here it is! @sarrachristine_
I’ve been wanting to do this for a while because:
a) I want an account that is more focused and slightly more professional than my other Instagram
b) I want somewhere that I can post every time I update my blog, without everyone I’ve ever met having their feeds clogged up with blog posts that I’m sure they don’t care about.
I’m not sure how big a deal Instagram is to everyone, but for me, it is my favourite app. I would post 10 times a day if it wasn’t annoying, and I am constantly stalking everyone and everything on it. So two accounts shouldn’t be a problem.
If you’re on Instagram too, give me a follow, and remember to link me your accounts too!
