When Life Takes Over

Ohai!! I still can’t believe its October already. I feel so unproductive (blog-wise)!

Here’s a quick update, in bullet points — because that’s how it is for me right now. Everything in bullet points. *sigh*


Lake Zurich on a gloomy day

  • We went to Switzerland, I’m sure you’ve heard. (If not, then follow my Instagram and Facebook. I get to update those more regularly, especially Instagram!)
  • It was amazing! I have lots of stories and photos to share. Let me just arrange my thoughts and do some photo editing (more like, re-sizing and putting watermarks coz I do not know how to use Photoshop, lol!)
  • I still have a lot of stuff in my draft folders … the ones from our US trip and some staycation reviews. (mental note: I need to get those done!)

Mr. Bubbles

  • I won a contest from Weesha’s World and got some nice lingerie from TKD. I’ll post my experience soon (I hope sooner than later!!)
  • On health matters, I still can’t get the excess weight off. I have been eating the right food but the problem is that I don’t “move” as much I need to. The good thing about Switzerland is that I was able to hit my goal (10,000 steps/day) everyday! Now, if only I could do the same here. 
  • Blake started school. We had a very short adjustment phase (read: separation anxiety attacks) but we got over it quickly. YAY!
  • Someone at work resigned so it’s extra stressful. Work load adjustments and all. 
  • I got myself a calligraphy set. (not sure how I can fit this new hobby in my busy “schedule”, I’m not even done with my coloring phase!)

There’s a lot that I want to do but (real) life is taking over. I need to reassess myself and do something about this situation once and for all. Changes will happen, people. Watch out for it.

    Hi Sheila, I feel you, same here! I seriously don’t know where to start… Too many things to do in so little time… I just day dream of doing the things that I need to do while I’m driving, in a meeting 🙂 or when I’m in the thrown (LOL)… But seriously, I have like a long list to be completed.

    I hope you can cope up with the stress and activities you’re doing now, I saw some of your Switzerland pictures, fab!

    GOD bless you!

      Hi Candice! Thanks for dropping by. We just need to take it one day at a time, I guess!
      Saw your photos too! Someday I’ll visit France, hopefully soon. 🙂
