Top 5 Twist-Out Products under $10

Being natural, you learn that every product doesn’t do what it says it does, and the good stuff cost your whole life savings! Especially if you’re new to the game! I’ve been transitioning for two years and am constantly trying to find “the” product for my hair while also trying to not be homeless on the street with flawless hair.┬áBeing in grad school, you learn how to stretch every penny you own.

Frugalistas, I’ve created a list of my top 5 favorite products under $10.00. My go-to’s if you will! I’ve ordered them from least expensive to most expensive, while still being under $10 of course.

5 Jobs you can get with a Bachelors in Psychology

First day of Psych 100 – Intro to Psychology. The very first thing the professor said was ‘If you don’t plan on getting a Doctorates degree in Psychology, you may want to rethink what you want to do as a career.’ We spent an entire 50 minute lecture discussing the slim to none chance of getting a job in the field with a Bachelors in Psychology. This notion made plenty of people change their majors or have second thoughts about what they wanted to do with their lives. While some people did in fact choose Psychology because ‘it seemed like an easy major’ and were quickly dissuaded after this lecture, others who wholeheartedly wanted a degree in Psychology pondered on what else they could get a degree in.

Reading Goal: Complete!

So, I love to read. But being in grad school literally makes it impossible to read for leisure. I made a goal for this ~5 week break from school to read 10 books that have been sitting on my wish list for months…

Honestly… I didn’t get to read 10. I was so overwhelmed with school all year that I took a few weeks to just sit around and do any and everything my heart desired, and the reading got put on the backburner. Whoops.

I did, however, read 8! Here is a list of all the books I read over my winter break:

About Me.

Hello! Thank you for visiting my page. I started this blog because so many people asked me┬ámultiple times how to do the same things – hair routines, making extra money while in graduate school and other cool life hacks. I decided to share the knowledge that I spent hours upon hours researching with everyone who may (or may not) be in the same boat as I.

A little about me:

My name is Asia and I’m a 23 year old Capricorn.. I grew up in a military family, moving from state to state (and a couple of different countries) just about every year of my childhood. I was born in North Carolina, lived in every state from Georgia to New Jersey, and graduated high school in Delaware. I received a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Virginia State University in 2013. I’m currently located in Baltimore, Maryland working towards a Masters Degree in Applied Psychology.

My parents raised me to be very independent. With that being said, I’m known for balancing 3 and 4 jobs at a time while still going to school full-time. I did it all throughout undergrad, and my first year of graduate school as well. When I realized I was killing myself trying to balance working full-time to take care of myself and live comfortably while also pursuing a masters degree full-time, I put my ‘comfortable lifestyle’ on hold and went back to living like a student! This transition took a damper on me mentally, physically and most of all financially – but it’s a sacrifice you make to get where you want to be! I hope that this blog will provide insight, hope and motivation to others also making the ‘grad school sacrifice’ while also trying to embrace being a natural black woman!
