NC Real Estate Agent , chp 3 Section 3.

From real estate paralegal to real estate agent.

From passing closing documents to real estate contracts.

Oh my have I been through quite the roller coaster ride.

2 years ago – headed to the law firm.

Working for attorneys will teach you to three things: read everything twice, pay attention to detail, and lastly when in doubt just say you don’t know.

Your word is super important and I rather you be honest and knowledgeable than carelessly move forward with whatever.

Be sure to read through everything thoroughly. Lawyers are trained to clarify (usually in detail) and spice of language for contracts. Understand what you are signing.

Paying attention to detail can easily save everyone involved some time. Imagine recording a deed to a home and the Parcel ID or grantee name is wrong 😑. Simply mistakes happen but in this world you learn from them and they don’t happen again.

Real estate school is something else too! Some attorneys would even say the NC state test is harder than the BAR exam! 🤯 I can’t imagine. I would prefer going to school longer for this type of test. I also wish upfront cost were there for people to know as well.

Being a real estate agent is new for me. Just the agent part. I’ve been touring and working in homes since I was 8 or 10. Now I just have the luxury of helping people secure their home and their bag 💰.

I’ve watched this city grow and am excited to be a part of it. Welcome home y’all 🏡

Layer of Skin: my routine.

Melanin popping

I didn’t fall in love with my skin until about nineteen or twenty years of age. I didn’t start taking care of my skin until I was twenty-two years old. At that point in my life, I was working in hot kitchens. Being in heated environments will bring more attention to your skincare for sure.

Let your pores breathe! ✨

I remember always getting compliments about my skin. What I remember most was taking it for granted. I was starting to see moles, pimples, blackheads, freckles, beauty marks, and zits! It was madness!

I’m almost thirty, every year I learn something new. The time and care that I take with my skin have progressed. There is a lot involved with skincare. Your environment, food, water, stress, anxiety, and hygiene all contribute to the health of your skin. I don’t know how much water I drink in a day, but it’s a lot! Food is fuel – period! The environment is about the factors of nature. We need to adapt to what we have. If it is super hot and sunny, stay hydrated. Occasionally, find shade if possible and wear sunblock. Try keeping the stress and anxiety to a minimum. How do you say? Only focus/worry about things you can control. I’ll leave that to you, regarding what you can control. Perspective is forever changing, and to be honest, that’s none of my business.

Lastly, what we are all here for is skin hygiene. Here I will list out my routine for my weekly skin bath. It brings me joy to make this time for myself!

  1. Start hot bath! Feel free to use bubble bath, bath bombs, and etc.
  2. Sit and soak for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. With just my fingers I take my hands and massage my bottom half first.
  4. Next I scrub my bottom half with a coarse scrubby 🧽
  5. I repeat steps 3 and 4 on my top half. I also check my breast for lumps here and pay attention to my armpits.
  6. If I’m shaving, that’s where this starts.
  7. By this time the water is super nasty. You should have dead skin and dirt float with no more bubbles. Hair of you decided to shave.
  8. Drain the water, stand up, do a quick rinse.
  9. Clean (with soap) one more time overall and the water should be drained.
  10. Now do a last 2 minute hot rinse. It assures me that the lingering skin, dirt or hair is no longer on me and rinsed the soap of.
  11. I turn the water off and shake my booty cheeks so they clap. I try to avoid depending on a towel to completely dry.
  12. I dry my yoni then feet last.
  13. I let my pores breathe for a bit.
  14. I use Shea butter as my first application after my shower. It’s too heavy too put on open pores.

While doing all of this I try to be mindful of my week, my thoughts, goals. I even get into affirmations sometimes. Use this as your time. It’s amazing for me! Give it a try!

Make and take for yourself 🙃

Take care of yourself, and your skin will follow! Feel free to try any of the steps in my skip bath routine. Also, SHARING is CARING! Let me know what works for you. I would love to try out what you are doing!

Old scribble.

So I found an old notebook of mine. This notebook contained ancient writings of mine from two thousand-six and earlier. Like OMG, I was shocked to see how little me was so emotional. I imagine that is a typical response though, right? I mean we grow and mature over the years, most anyway. I thought it would be cool to share some of these things with you. Over time we should get through them all together - i know, bare with me. 

My goal is to leave the poems and writings in the rawest form so you can get a gist of little baby me. They will be categorized as "Old scribble". The first one is called Cry Today.
