I do not even know where to start. I have been MIA for eight ( 8 ) months, but I tell you, I have a perfectly valid reason why it's been a ghost town here lately. The past months have been nothing but intense craziness. You see, my work place has been transferred to corporate head office since March of this year. Stating the obvious, travel is 24-kms one-way, so x2, that would be 48-kms every day. It's not like we have the best traffic system here in the Philippines, thus the ultimate need to wake up at 4:30AM every single damn day. Admittedly, I didn't think I'd last and I know that I will never adjust to living in the South - working in the North kind of thing, but hey, I'm surviving.


I wish I'd get my blogging mojo back. I have tons of scheduled and unfinished posts that I have been wanting to share with all of you, but I just can't seem to bring myself to wholeheartedly write about them. I have been going to bed tired and have been waking up the following day still tired. So whatever little free time I have, I choose to get extra hours of sleep or hang with friends or simply do nothing. I try to enjoy these little un-frazzled moments.

Even if I'm in my 30s, I see that I am still a work-in-progress and as tough as the past months have been — transferring offices, a good boss resigning + a close friend resigning, everyone wanting to be a super cook in the kitchen ... everything that came out from these experiences taught me a lot about myself and have shown me that I am resilient & can slay while I'm at it :)

Have you ever struggled in being a grown-up? What do you do whenever you feel like there's just so much on your plate? Any advice on how to make adulting easier?  Peace + Love + Good Vibes. RUSS.

Just literally take each day as it comes. No sense in driving myself bonkers trying to do it all - that is my life theme. I do what I do, when i can do it and that is all. I won't do more or less than what makes me happy!

Don't even worry about it! Take care of you first and foremost! At the age of 48 I realized that I come first or I have nothing of value to offer others. Wait until you feel good about blogging again then slay that too! You will get there. Sounds like there are a lot of changes in your life right now and that will be great content to share later on! Sleep is SO important! I do not get enough good sleep myself but working on that. Take care for now!

Well welcome back. I do work and I understand how difficult it can be to have a life/work/blog balance. You do what is easy for you, what makes you happy. Even if it is just saying hello and how things are going. Maybe blog about that. How are you feeling?
Good luck to you

I totally feel that I am barely adulting lately. I am so beyond exhausted with life and everything I have to do. I've also lost my blog mojo a few times. You will get it back. Don't force it.

Adulting, I say this to myself at least once a week. It’s crazy how time flies, sometimes I wish I could take back not having so many responsibilities and deadlines to meet. Now that you are back in the game, it’s your time to shine! Slay away and best of luck with work and other tasks that come your way.
