Rainy Days In February



I was hoping to write this earlier in the day, but had quite a lot to do and that was tiring. As I write this, I can hear the sound of rain on my bedroom window tonight and it definitely has a calming effect on me.

Hopefully I fall asleep shortly, after posting this and completing a few things first. My annual WordPress subscription got renewed today, which means I don’t have to worry about that for another year now. I just have to renew the domain name in April.

As much as I don’t like the price of the subscription, the premium themes are so worth it. The simplicity of my current theme is wonderful, to say the least.

Minor changes might be made soon, but nothing too outrageous.

Tomorrow is going to be a little busy, but it should be fine, as long as I stay on target with what I need to get done. I often try and make lists the night before, it’s very motivating when you need some positive encouragement.

Anyway, before I ramble too much, I’ll leave it at that until the end of tomorrow.

Stay safe, take care of you and others and be kind.

The Writing Streak Continues

An early addition, for me anyway.


Hello readers, bloggers and human beings.

Found it a little difficult knowing what to write, but I want to keep this streak of writing alive for the time being. After all, this is a personal blog.

I’ve been meaning to start work on my next book of poetry, although it’s still a work in progress. A lot is going on, but I’m feeling positive so far.

Focusing on my health is a priority at the moment, as well as other things alongside that. I am determined to stick to my resolutions this year, in a healthy and gradual way. I try not to call it ‘dieting’ as it can trigger unhealthy eating habits.

Being the impatient young woman I am, it can feel like this whole process is taking a long time, yet I do understand that it’s not an overnight change.

Anyway, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.

Stay safe, take care, be kind.

Another Day, Another Late Blog Post



So, another day, another blog post that is uploaded late.

I would go to bed, but it’s the weekend and I have a lot of energy.
Might binge watch something on Netflix and write a bit of poetic material.

Feeling quite inspired, although I feel a bit strange after eating some junk food yesterday evening. Can’t wait to get back to my health based journey, which is right now. I’ve tried to reassure myself that it’s okay to have a cheat day once in a while.

Anyway, I do hope everyone is staying safe and well.
Have a wonderful weekend and take care.

Snow Days In January




The weather is really cold these days, and now there’s snow.

January has been such a weird month, like many of the previous ones in the last year or so. As much as I don’t mind cold days or nights, it still manages to get on my last nerve sometimes.

It can also make it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings too, having to wear many layers around the house is interesting, I do keep the heating on a lot, but with that being so expensive, as it can be for many people, I try and keep it on mainly at night.

So glad I have my fleece blanket, as well as my normal duvet. I am thinking of getting more winter type bedding and things like that, but I’m really prioritizing other bills and expenses.

Got a lot of math study to catch up on, which I’ll probably do some of it tomorrow morning. I am determined to wake up early, plus I enjoy cleaning the house. It’s very therapeutic, comforting and I count it as exercise, depending on the household chores I do over the course of the day.

Another thing I also love beyond words is cooking. I could spend hours upon hours making dishes from scratch, it’s something I hope to do more of as well, sometimes there’s not a lot of time and you just want something quick and simple, that’s pretty great too.

Anyway, long story short, I’m off to bed soon. Take care and stay safe!

Monday Gratitude



Today was meant to be Blue Monday, and for the first time in years I can honestly say, it really wasn’t too bad. Start of the week can be a bit slow and tiring, although that’s not unusual.

Been quite productive too, which I’m pleased about. Got up early, took my supplements, all that fun, morning routine stuff. I’ve tried to keep myself organized and punctual, so I don’t forget anything important.

Weather’s quite cold, it seems like it’s raining all the time during the night, either that or the wind is howling. Either way, none of that has impacted my routine so far.

My first online lesson went okay, although I think there was an issue with the audio on my end of the line. I’ve got some things I need to do before Thursday, which is something I am looking forward to a lot.

Almost reached my water intake goal for the day also, still not entirely keen on it, but I have noticed a difference in my skin, although the hyperpigmentation is something I need to sort out at some point.

Been watching a lot of videos about skincare and I have learned a lot since then. Knowing these key ingredients and what they help with has been incredibly beneficial and it helps me understand my own skin a lot more, and how to protect it well.

I’m hoping to fall asleep soon, fingers crossed. Stay safe, everyone.

The Peace That Comes With Age

As I near my 25th birthday, there’s a lot of emotions running wild inside my brain right now. Let me tell you, adult life is not as incredible as young me used to think. If you’re in a rush to be of age, don’t fret about it all too much.

There’s a difference between wanting to be older, and being it. Sure, many great opportunities and memories will come your way. Well, all our experiences won’t be the same, or any less complex, but I suppose, that’s the beauty of not knowing what the universe has in store for all of us.

Whilst the year is still in bloom, I’ll most likely do my best to ensure I don’t get lost in the resolutions I will inevitably break, the weight that’ll shed as slow as a turtle makes their way, and the poetry book that won’t be finished until the end of the year or beyond.

I try to be patient with myself, and the journey that life has brought me on. Although, it never does get easier. Being able to express my thoughts again has definitely been the light at the end of this dark tunnel of worry.

Cold Weather And Not Enough Sweaters, Life Is Complicated

Maybe it’s just me, or the world has simply become much colder and less pleasant. As if that wasn’t already the case for most of us human creatures.

I was going to post something last night, as it was International Women’s Day, but my brain just could not for the life of me write anything of necessary use. So, I apologize wholeheartedly for that.

Since we’re being honest, I must admit, writing at all has been a massive challenge recently. For some reason, it just doesn’t fit into my life at the moment.

A lot of reasons, most of them personal. Might open up on a later date, but I’ll try and see where it leads.

Updating the blog often is what I am hoping to do, in the next few months. Especially as I start on the new book project and start putting that together.

It is such a journey, all these emotions that come and go, and the people that are seemingly attached to different memories of mine.

Nostalgia petrifies me at times. That need to forget or accept the circumstances of our current state.

May your night be full of love and light.

Hours That Follow, A Poem Draft From Book #3

There’s something about the midnight hour, I can’t understand how it works, or if it calms my soul enough to heal my battle wounds.

Either way, it builds my core, to the point of nausea. You push yourself to the edge and somehow recover, just to fall back on your word again.

It’s a continuous cycle, the same routine of thought, as time leads you on a journey.

You can either hide in denial, or confront your darkest personality traits in depth.

To cut ties with fear of abandonment, a need for approval; Am I losing touch with reality or am I too aware of my own weaknesses and destructive mindset?

It takes a lot to admit defeat, and admit that you’re a broken individual.

So for the time being, love your fellow entities that surround the halls of your mind. For the present hour, cherish the hours that follow.

Be fearless, love the obstacles that test you. Kill the fear that haunts your path.

Free the mind, cure the anxiety of not knowing what’s going to happen next.

New Year 2019 – Daily Blog Posts?

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had an amazing first day of 2019. Just wanted to write a quick post, and I’ll start posting daily on the blog from now on. 2018 was tough, and writing wasn’t fun to do at all previously, so I really wanted to make an effort this time and stick to my word of consistent posts, and have a balanced routine of thoughts, poems, opinions, so forth.

Thank you to the ones who check my blog often, you’re incredible,

to say the least.

I’m excited to see what the year holds for me, personally. Of course, I did a resolutions post about a week and a half ago, which I’ll be trying to focus on.

How was your first day of 2019?

And like I said, I’ll be on here every day from now on. May you all have a wonderful day or night, depending on where you are and such.

Take care, everyone!

Yours Truly,

Writing Session #31

So, the last Writing Session is being written as we speak. It’s been quite a journey in terms of sticking to a writing routine. Proud of myself for not giving up on what could have been, easily, a disaster.

But all that said, I have enjoyed the idea of posting every day, whether it’s meaningful, deeper thoughts or simply, a ramble of the moment. The variation keeps the mind at peace, which is a good thing, I suppose.

WHAT HAS IT TAUGHT ME ABOUT BLOGGING?

A lot, actually. It has made me appreciate my blog a lot more. And also, if anyone noticed, I recently changed themes. This one is more sleek and nicer than the previous. Wanted to make it different and finally, I found it. Nothing quite like a good blog makeover. Personally, I’m quite satisfied.

NEXT ON MY BLOG AGENDA:

 

  • Editing of older posts.
  • Buying a good camera.
  • Regular posts and quotes.
