Why I haven't been writing in a while.... a lot of things has happened and I can't wait to tell you about it!!!
It's been two months since I last written a blog post for which I know it's not very professional of me to consider myself as a writer and yet the last thing in my mind for the past few months have been to write... It's not that I didn't want to write, but rather there was just too much going on in my life that I just can't seem to find the time to even log in to my website and write about something. So consider this as my first blog of the month of September and I promise it won't be my last, there is just so much I would want to tell you guys, experiences I would like to share that I don't even know where to begin. The books I've read and the things I have made and seen will pretty much compensate for the lack of content over the past two months of pretty much non existing.
So to start of I'd like to tell you that one of the main reasons for not being able to write is because I've been trying to focus more on another aspect of my career which is becoming an "artist", the whole concept of it is still quite new to me up until now and it's still something I'm trying to get used to the fact that I am in fact being paid to paint or create something with the use of my hands and whatever material I could find lying around. It's still something that's new to me considering I never thought there would come a time that I will be compensated for doing something I love and for doing something people in my past used to discourage me to do because of the stigma that art can't put food on the table. So yeah my schedule is pretty full with painting murals, bags, shoes and quite recently pots --- flower pots.
Next, I've been diving into uncharted territory, quite recently I've been fond of doing a bit of gardening... yes you heard that right GARDENING. I recently felt fifty years older than my real age, and I know it's just a stereotype that older people prefer doing gardening, and I honestly don't see anything wrong with that stereotype but well as a young adult some people would think that I in fact live a boring life tending to my plants on the weekends instead of partying out or drinking wine with my friends. Well my response to that comment would be "Don't knock it till you try it." Planting and seeing things grow before your eyes is not only therapeutic but it fills you up with a sense of accomplishment that you have in fact successfully grown a new life in a green little plant.
Another reason is because I was too busy LIVING haha! :) I was travelling and experiencing new things which I can't wait to blog about one day---when I actually get to sit down and write about it. As for the living part as well, life has just been surprisingly "IN MY FACE" lately, the struggles I had to deal with for the past two to three months has pretty much knock out the wind in me and it took a lot of reflecting and soul searching to get me back on my feet again and actually ready to write about it. Let's just say that this year has been a roller coaster ride of feelings for me. Whether it be surviving your paranoia with death threats, trying to lengthen your patience talking to your obsessed stalker, dealing with I'm sorry to say stupid people and of course family relationships that can just make you insane. So yeah I can't wait to talk about it soon. For now this is just me sort of telling everybody that I am still in fact alive.
