At least you were able to manage the problem and not bury your head in the sand.

I like it. I like the font for the titles because it's bold and clean.. and the colours are nice.

Balancing fun and work is the hardest for me. I go into extremes of working all the time and spending $0, to spending all the time and making $0. *SIGH*

Reaching for perfection is the surefire way to fail. Why not pick one goal and get it 100% right? I find if I pick too many goals, I get overwhelmed...

I am definitely a Type A personality.... but I am introverted mostly because I loathe group projects. I absolutely hate it when I have to work with other people because I end up doing their work as well which just aggravates me.

The only point I would disagree with is how hard moving is on kids. You don't know whether it'll be hard on on them or not, until you ask them, so instead of assuming it'll be hard, it might actually be something they want.
We all left at different ages from different schools from a totally different country, and we looked forward to i and thrived from the move.
Same with other kids in my family that moved from one city to another. They eventually adjusted. I'm not saying every year you should move them, but it shouldn't really be a major factor when it comes down to deciding if it'll be a better situation for your family financially.

@BunBunMakeupTips I was always told food had nothing to do with your acne, but the difference between what I ate before and what I eat now, is really clear in my face. When I eat bad food now, it shows up on my face about 3 days later. No question about it. I am not used to eating crap and my body hates it.
Dairy and cheese are also problems for the skin for some people. I'm lucky in that it doesn't really affect me, but I know others who cut dairy out of their lives and have super clear skin now.
You'll get used to not eating junk any more.. I did, anyway. Sushi is my favourite thing to eat, so it was easy.

It is definitely your eating habits. I used to think I had acne my whole life and was resigned to it.
Then I started NOT eating crap. Nothing greasy, no processed foods, nothing from a box or a can, let alone a fast food restaurant.
My skin cleared up and stayed clear ever since. I get the occasional pimple when I try new products like Dr. Dennis Gross retinol pads, or hormonal breakouts on my chin, but otherwise, I am 100% pimple free.
It is not worth it to eat bad food, only to see it appear on your face and last for 2-3 weeks and leave a dark mark or a scar, or to have bumpy, ugly skin even if you wear makeup to cover it.
Most pimples are a sign of an allergy to something you ate.
Now I just focus on eating clean (raw, natural foods, cooked or not, but nothing processed like cookies, or nothing greasy like noodles soaked in oil), and I don't even need to wear makeup if I don't want to.
