This post is long overdue . I want to say life happens, but I guess that’s not news? I have wanted to share the updates to my home as they happen but June has been a rather busy month on my end. I celebrated my anniversary…my 3rd anniversary which was amazing and we should definitely talk about in another post.
Every once in a while i go on a break. sometimes a voluntary ne and most times an involuntary one because other things take precedence or my body just gives up on me. This month ended up being like that. I had a little trip to the city, and the exhaustion that has followed and sheer nonchalance in life in general has been quite a bit
I had a bug to write a blog post yesterday. My process of writing is usually very strange because I always start with a prompt rather than a title, and yesterday the prompt came to me. But as with every adult interaction, life just crept on me.
Two things prompt my writing… Darkness or nights and music. In my last post I talked about my random 2.00 am nights and my struggle with sleep. One of the things that I now do is listen to something, it helps me not be so aware of my sorrounding and helps me relax. I also use music to help me gather my thoughts and concentrate… Which is the case today. It’s almost midnight on Christmas eve, and weirdly enough, I’m struggling.
I intended to write about fashion this week. Or was it last week, I am not sure at this point. I just know I needed to write about that. it was going to be a summary of the looks that I put together for this challenge….(which you should consider trying) but life would have it otherwise. Last week was supposed to bet the week of doing my social media work for the month so that I can then pave way for other assignments that I was to do. That of course turned out terrible.
For someone who moves around a lot, my adjusting time is really long, or at least that’s what B pointed out. I technically with my level of experience in traveling (read as operating from three homes per unit time) I should be able to adjust to different spaces really easily and relatively fast. Except I don’t.
B and I have been watching a telenovela, for maybe three or so months albeit non consecutively. (yeah the show has 100 episodes). Usually we don’t commit this long, or should I say I don’t, because B watched How I met your mother to completion a week after internship. Just for context, it’s been three years and I have never finished that show and I am not even sure that I am interested in doing so. The commitment is not my strongest point.
I have always envisioned myself as those girls in the pictures who put a laptop on their lap in bed, with a cup of tea and a towel turban on their head working on a chill evening. the problem is, I hardly if ever put a laptop on my lap despite its name suggesting were it should be placed, let alone turban my head with a towel. Its not like I haven’t done it before, its just that that instance was a shoot and the towel fell off my head not long after. The reality is, I can barely concentrate in bed, my laptop is 17 inches and quite heavy and I once had a cup of tea while I was working and ended up spilling the drink on my laptop key board and ended up needing a new one…So usually I just sit on the desk and type my posts.
It has almost two weeks since we caught up on this my little space on the internet. I usually look forward to writing because it has become my form of release that doesn’t take too much preparation. Unlike videos where I have to set up myself to be a presentable human, I can look homeless and still write without feeling like I will be judged for it. So I absolutely love blogging for that reason. So not writing for two weeks means that I have been swamped with life….
