On being MIA.

Hi guys!!!

It’s been so long! 

I know I’m always away these days, forgive me! 

It’s just that I’ve not been feeling like blogging at all which is so sad.

Sometimes, I have nothing to post about. Other times, I have stuff to post about but I never get to putting my thoughts in actual words. Most times, I’m just too tired or busy or lazy. 

I’ve not even been reading and commenting on other people’s blogs; many of you who blog know that I read and often like and comment on your posts but I’ve been MIA on your blogs for the longest time. 

Life just has a way of messing with you. 

Somehow, I keep getting busier everyday and too tired to be social; or maybe it’s all in my head and I’m just lazy and unmotivated.

I’ve taken out some time to think and though I haven’t found a strategy on how to post more, I’m going to put more effort and see how it goes from there; hopefully, I get my groove back.

I’m super grateful for everyone who’s sent me a mail or a message on Instagram or somewhere else or asked me in person why I’ve been missing on the blog. 

I hope that you guys will keep pushing and nudging me till I find my way back to being more consistent and more social.

Let’s slay the last month of 2016, shall we? I love you guys!

What Nobody Told Me About Growing Up

1992

When I was little/ younger, I had all these ideas and fantasies of what it would be like to be grown up.

I would be filthy rich (there’s still time for this; I won’t give up!), I would be married by the time I was 23, I would have an awesome job (At first I wanted to be a vet; I don’t know why because I do not like animals that much. Later, I wanted to be a voice over artist for cartoons. One time, I wanted to be on TV and/or radio; still do. Later on, I decided I’d rather work for myself) etc
Now that I’m older, even though I still think to myself that there’s still time to have all these amazing dreams leave my head and come into the world and become realities, I review some dreams and I know they will most probably remain dreams. As depressing as this sounds, it’s the truth and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.

Here are some crucial things nobody told me about growing up which I learnt by myself on my journey to where I am now: Continue reading
