A Little Catch Up

HIATUS It has been a while! Where exactly should I pick things off? Just scrolled through my blog it dawned on me that I haven't been writing much about my personal happenings. (Hahaha okay cobwebs' all dusted out today). So what's up for me recently? 

Life has been going through a lot of change over the last few months. Even more so than what's on my plate compared to the last few years. It's like finding myself right in the middle of a hurricane and everything's too fast to sink in nor catch up. It's challenging, yet exciting but stressful all the same. You guys get what I'm trying to say?? In short, it has been a difficult time for me. And it still is. 

Getting out of a five-year relationship a couple of months ago hadn't been easy. It took a hell lot of courage, adjustment time to get used to, and honestly it did felt a little bit terrifying having to be out there "by yourself" again. I know many of you are very inquisitive about what happened, and are quick to jump to conclusions as to "who pulled the plug". I did. We mutually agreed that things weren't working out so we parted as friends. (Sorry to disappoint for the lack of drama hahaha)

I took up a new job two months ago - as an events planner (yes I am also equally surprised by myself) because you know.. it's a proper kind of desk job.... hahaha. Except that my work starts only at ten in the morning, with a supervisor that chases me home at six p.m. sharp, and I get the chance to access quirky places around Singapore. It's really a cool job! I must have Lady-luck smiling on me to find such a fun job with great colleagues. What more can I ask for?

And of course..... Plan B of my life begins after six where I run for my Amway meetings and appointments after work . Though it may be a little tiring when my appointment stretches late into the night.. it keeps me really happy knowing that I'm going after my dream everyday.

I'm afraid of falling into a cycle like most working adults do, where they get so cooped up with work and all that they let their dreams die. I came across a quote by Benjamin Franklin on Facebook saying how "Most people die at 25 and they aren't buried until they are 75". Honestly speaking, it is downright terrifying if you give it a second thought. These are words that hits me close. I mean, just think about it. When we lose sight of our goals and dreams; and when we drag our feet to work for the sake of a pay-check, doesn't it just sounds like committing spiritual suicide?

Ok now that's your homework. Food for thought (.......and just look at the kind of things that runs through my head now...) I am showing obvious signs of aging. Holy cat. 

Wow this post is getting lengthier than I expected. 

I actually do have a lot to say after all these months!! 

I guess the only thing that I want to lament about a desk bound job is that I'm sitting down all day at a desk.. Basically it just involves interesting anecdotes like eating and sitting and eating and sitting (and maybe some more eating and sitting). Oh my goddd. I cannot accept. Is this how people put on weight?? 

I'm going to declare that my newfound hideout is the gym!! If no one has ever said this to you before, let me tell you that a gym can be addictive..... I have never imagined myself as a gym-going-lover kind of person but it is happening now.. (See, I wasn't kidding when I said that my life is going through lots of change that I can't even fully apprehend what is happening) This doesn't makes sense. 

Guess I'll catch some sleep before I continue another time (hahahah) Goodnight 

Ending my post with a special shout out and thanks to the team behind Life View Photography! We had these pictures shot a couple of months back and I finally got around to putting them on the blog today ♥

  1. These pictures are amazing, you are always so gorgeous! I am very glad to have known about you now, and it seems life is going on well - gym (I would love to like it, I have to! But I will relax for today :), and the job - that you are seeing so many nice places there... a desk job, but why not? I think it's cool! And you can still go on with Amway later. Also, the break up was not easy, of course, but if you felt it was needed, I am glad you did it. I am so impressed by the quote! No one wants to die at 25 and to be buried at 75 :) I will share that on fb, for sure! I am sure you wont die at 25 - you are aware of your dreams and will go after them!
