Monthly Recap: Jan – Jul 15
Obviously not blogging 😎 . I’ve pretty much disappeared from blogging for a year and a half. Last year, it was my intern year and my work-study-life balance was completely skewed to work and study without much life so there wasn’t much to blog about. I also couldn’t get my creativity flowing which only got me frustrated…
The good thing is that I’m finally a registered pharmacist. But that brought on a whole new set of problems (such as no longer having a 9am – 5pm roster and adjusting to doing alternating morning and night shifts…). I decided then to take a big step back and examine my life.
This year was a major change because I’m no longer studying. It definitely has caused ‘quarter-life’ crisis modes on occasion but…I’ve been trying to stick to my new years resolutions and even made a little poster to remind me.
As you can see, I absolutely love the watercolour look.
I’ve framed the illustration and keep it on my filing cabinet next to my table to inspire me whenever I’m down. Admittedly, I’m not following all the points but the most important ones (the first four) I’ve been following to the tee. This year has been so far figuring me. I’ve definitely been more happy and taking care of myself more.
Decluttering has also been a major part. We’ve been renovating the house in preparation for my sister’s wedding – the whole works, so repainting all the walls and redoing the floors etc. It’s been stressful and tiring. We’ve still got a long way to go as well 😮 The most exciting thing will be the interior design – I can’t wait to do my room!
How has everyone been? 😉
Misaki, welcome back to Internet Land! I love that poster you made. I need to make a poster like it, just to remind me about self-care, ya know? The year has seen a lot of changes with me and my life, too. I can’t believe how quickly it’s went from January to August, though! I’m…about to be 30! (In another 6 months)…so let me say that living through your quarter-life crises is doable 😉 Good luck with the decorating & the wedding 😀
