Life Lately

Life lately + First Quarter Review

It’s a few days to the end of the first quarter of 2014 and as usual, I’m evaluating myself, my plans, goals and whatnot.

I still don’t have a DSLR
I still haven’t taken up any internship (largely because of the above)
My work-out routine is a bit shaky.
I still don’t have a bible study buddy

However, I’ve been reading a lot lately. I feel like I’ve been deprived and denied books, well largely because I didn’t read any fiction in 2013 (sadly) and now the very lovely Lade just gave me a link to her Dropbox. I think I just went to heaven and returned. Contrary to my original plan of avoiding Goodreads because of the depression my account emits, I’m literally strutting into it on a daily basis. Hopefully my ”to read” shelf gets a sort of revamp.

Then again, exams start in exactly 4 weeks, (because one month is too mainstream) after a fairly long year and I need to wrap up my assignments and draw a study plan(which I have thankfully) instead of reading fiction. It’s not even helpful that the folders are beside each other and so.. Anyways all I’m saying is I’m really tempted to read a novel instead of studying and it’s surprisingly difficult to decide.

Also, I’m trying to write more and build my portfolio by reaching out to other high-end websites/webzines. I just really hope I get feedbacks. It would do my incessant anxiety a lot of good.

Just recently, TMC asked me to take part in a ”Big Chop Expose” as against her next meet-up taking place in Toronto. I’m just glad she considered me worthy to be part of it

For the first time ever, I have a whole month’s posts scheduled upfront on AN. I think this has a lot to do with my daily visits to Pinterest. The inspiration’s been insane.

I don’t think I’ve had this amount of drafts all at once before. My mind’s literally wondering. I think I have a book review, poem, rant and a handful of articles/posts including a feature story I’m thinking about and my very first interview template all INCOMPLETE! Sigh.

Oh and btw, did y’all notice the new site design? Pretty right? I’ll probably have time for it later on.

I also got my biggest, well second to biggest disappointment ever during the course of the week. I was literally depressed. I had so much faith this person would come through but… Well, life happens. So much for family.

So, amongst other things, that’s pretty much all that’s been going on with me for the past three months till date. Come to think of it, the first quarter hasn’t been so bad. It’s been unconsciously eventful and I’m thankful for every bit of it. You know the best part, I really do not need to step an inch from my bed unless it’s absolutely necessary. AWE.SOME! But not very good for my health. So next quarter, by the grace of God, I’ve decided to see a movie weekly. Pick a random day, leave my house, see a comedy or something. Something to help relax and calm my nerves. I really hope I can keep up because I can be a couch potato (most) times except that I hardly even watch TV anymore.
