The last two weeks have been cuh-razy busy because of all the packing and ticking off things from our short Dubai bucket list (as aptly visualized by TimeOut Dubai’s cover…just in case you have not seen the social networks, The Husband and I are now out of Dubai! For good
“Is your blog dead?” The Husband asked me the other night. I then type in my blog’s url to check if something has gone wrong. Jitter bugs took over as I was in for the worst like my blog getting hacked (It happened to me once, so I know the horror) and losing around two years worth of work. When I saw the blog up and running, I sighed in relief and wondered what was wrong. What made The Husband think that the blog was dead?
Oh. My last post was two weeks back. No blogposts meant no life.
After a few weeks of galavanting around and skirting along in the UAE, here I am back in the daily desert grind, slouched on the love seat in our wee apartment with a pile of freshly hung laundry waiting to be folded and stashed in the closet. Of course, I ignore the pile of laundry and type away on the blog. Honestly, I am at a loss on where to start on the adventures I’ve had in the past weeks…
This post is dedicated to all bloggers: old and especially the new ones out there with grand dreams of fame and fortune through blogging, all budding creative people out there with little creative projects such as this little online space of mine…but hey, aren’t all people born to be creative? So heck yeah, this post is dedicated to all you people!
I am currently going through what I call the stumbling blog and somehow I can’t seem to get to wrap my head around it, being stuck in my independent problem solving ways.
Last night, The Husband and I slept at 9:30PM. I kid you not. We were that tired, so we did retire early for another busy day ahead of us. I was so tired that I didn’t have the energy to blog anymore. I didn’t have the energy to write anything worth writing about. I just feel off in my writing game as of late. Everything I produce has been BLECH like that outfit your regret wearing on that special date night or like making that wrong decision of not following your tummy’s cravings.
I guess this is what some people don’t understand. Blogging takes up a lot of time. At least an hour or two to write, upload photos, blah, blah, blah. Plus, of course, dedicating time for the experiences themselves. On top of being time consuming, it can be tiring.
And so I wanted to see and be inspired by some of the posts I truly enjoyed writing and think that are up to my abnormally sky high standards. Here are some of them:
I can’t believe it’s just been 5 days since I last blogged. Man, it felt like weeks! And it is so good to be back?
I know I have broken my promise of 365 blogposts this year, but I had to heed the call of my body to rest and recuperate. I have been bogged down by massive headaches and fever for days. Note: If there are people, who have a love affair with headaches, I am seriously not that kind of person. So headaches are still a strange phenomena for me.
I wouldn’t say that these past days have been a great experience, but I’ve learned a LOT.
This my word right now and I hope that it would continue to be my word every single day I sit down in front of my laptop and write a blogpost. I feel like I’m on a roll like the gambler who keeps on winning and winning, game after game after game. I enjoyed writing my posts about being a recipe rebel and the need for breathing space.
phase in their education, whether it be primary, high school or university, and step up to the new life ahead. I remember my graduations vaguely as I never put as much value into them. But now that I won’t be enjoying any graduation ceremonies anymore, I realized how important these ceremonies were. Graduation ceremonies helps us look back to how much we’ve accomplished over time and helps us look forward into the future, painting a picture of where we want ourselves to be.
Today, as the month of March ends, I look back on how much I’ve accomplished in the past 91 days and look forward into the future.I won’t deny that these past 3-months have been a roller coaster ride, which has its cloud nine highs and heart attack inducing dips.
I am exhausted. My eyes are drooping as I type these words on the computer. Not just physically, but creatively as well.
It’s the end of February today! Not only is it a mark of a leap year, but it also means that I have been blogging uninterruptedly for 60-days Now that’s a feat I am truly proud of!
A lot of people ask me: “How do you do it?!?” I seriously can’t even believe I did it! I mean, I am still doing it.
