Shrek: For your information, there’s a lot more to ogres than people think.
Shrek: Example? Okay, er… ogres… are… like onions.
Donkey: [sniffs onion] They stink?
Donkey: Or they make you cry.
Donkey: Oh, you leave them out in the sun and they turn brown and start sproutin’ little white hairs.
Shrek: NO! LAYERS! Onions have layers. OGRES have layers. Onions have layers… you get it. We both have layers.
Well, that’s a good way to start the otherwise dull “About me” section. From this amazing quote that tells you a lot more than you’d think, you can guess – Shrek and I have a lot in common. Except for the little trumpet-looking ears and a green tone of color… and a few other key differences.
Shrek and I both have layers, in a way. Mine are roles I play in my life. Just like other stay-at-home moms, I juggle between being a mom, wife, nurse, chef, friend, manager, banker, maid, artist, and a judge. A lot.
However, there’s more to it: besides the obvious, I’m also a student in biochemical engineering, passionate gamer, runner, gourmet, vegetarian, traveler, writer, streamer, entrepreneur, coffee addict, bookworm and many other things. My layers – my roles – are numerous, fun, thrilling, sometimes overwhelming, but I wouldn’t change them even if I could.
My ultimate goal is to reveal the true stories behind glorification of influencer, stay-at-home, parent, mom and women’s life. We are all very real people with very real challenges. I want people to see the no-makeup face, the real-life side of that life.
Here, you’ll find plenty of personal stories, as well as advice on parenting, healthy eating, relationships, friendships, self-improvement and plenty of other topics that will help you TURN your LIFE around!
