Still alive!

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Hiiiiiiiii!  So I meant to get back into the blogging groove earlier in the month, aka last week, but as we all saw, that did not happen.  Woopies and sorry!  I don't really know what else to say except life got in the way!

So here's a little recap things that had happened in my personal life since the last time I blogged.

» I applied for a certificate program close to home where I hope I'll make it in and start building a career.  I hate to admit it but I feel like a pretty big failure at the moment because I'm already in my mid-20s and I still don't have a stable job and a career.  I do have a lot of hobbies and interests that haven't exactly taken off either... I really need to get my life back on some sort of track... With that being said, I took some time off to work on my applications and had a mini-panic attack throughout the month of June as well... but I turned that application in on July 1st and I feel free again!

» The Mister and I took a road trip down to socal to visit some friends and to go to Disneyland!  We had a super long weekend and it was really nice that I find myself wishing I can go back to that weekend many times.  Umm... I plan to do an update on my 101 things in 1001 days challenge, so I'll probably go into more details then.  But I can say, I've been craving Boiling Point since then!

» My baby cousins came up from socal for a weekend and spent a few days with my family!  It's really interesting to see how fast kids grow up!  My immediate family and I don't get to see some of our extended families because they don't live in the Bay Area.  I've literally have only seen one of my cousins a handful of times and he's grown so much every time I see him.  I'm pretty sure they won't remember the visits since they're still under 5, and they probably won't recognize us the next time we see them, but I'm just amused by how fast they're growing!

Sadly that was the bulk of what happened during June.... I know, I lead a pretty boring life.  I've always wanted to do some sort of lifestyle blogging, but I think that would bore everyone to death.  Maybe I'll give it a try when I have a more interesting life in the future.... that just means I need to live a more interesting life.

If you've seen a bunch, or any of my older posts, it is basically chronicling my shopping addiction.  I don't want to admit I have that problem, but let's get real... I have a huge shopping addiction problem.  I like to buy things just for the sake of buying things with the intention of reviewing it for the blog but never gets around to actually doing so.  I really would like to work on that somehow on the blog and hope to turn my shopping addiction around some how.  Don't get me wrong, I love trying out new things, but who really needs like 5 different face washes at the same time?  Or 4 different hair masks?  Yah.... baby steps right?  The first step to recovery is admitting I have a problem... and I admit I have a huge problem.

Now that I feel like I have a bit more free time, I want to devote more time to this blog, this hobby of mine.  I really want to see it take off and go somewhere eventually....

Okay, I officially don't know what I'm saying anymore.  But the tldr version would be, I'm back and let's hope I don't take another break for a while!

  1. No need to apologise! I often disappear from my blog when life gets in the way and that's nothing to be apologetic about! Especially when it's a hobby rather than a profession! I often see professional bloggers blog about their day 'at work' and it is honest to goodness a 9-5 job (almost!)
    I too have a problem buying things for the sake of reviewing it but after awhile it got expensive and guilt inducing so now before I buy anything I stop myself, check my 'to-review' list and if a similar product isn't lined up for review I just hit the 'x' on the shopping page!
    I hope to see more from you soon!

    1. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement! It really brightened up my day and motivate me to want to put more effort into blogging! :)
