Where I’ve Been | Back on the Blogging Train

tlbrsep-decupdate

Hey you guys. How has everyone been? Yes, I’ve been very MIA for last three and a half months I believe, and I apologize for that. I’ve been so busy with school and everything else that there has been absolutely no time for my blog. School has stressed me out to the max. But since winter break has just begun, I thought what better time to hop back onto the blogging train than now? Oh, how I’ve missed writing. I’ve missed my blog. Whenever I’m not blogging, it feels like I’m neglecting a child. Weird, but that’s how it is.

So what’s new outside the blogosphere?

Over these past three and half-ish months, I’ve completed 3 sets of academic exams, joined my school’s media team, gotten back on track with my training, and gone self-hosted!! That’s right you guys, I finally did it. I made the big move. This is a really big step in my blogging journey, and it makes me so happy. I will talk in detail about going self-hosted in another blog post. Also, I finally got my nose pierced (mentally squealing oMG)! I’ve wanted to get it done for over a year, and honestly, it was waaaaay less painful than I had anticipated.

In other news, I had been nominated for 3 (or 4?) award tags back in August/September, and one of them not just once but thrice! I have yet to complete these tags, I’ll pop the links to them somewhere in this post once they’re up. I’m so honored to be given recognition by other bloggers, our blogging community is so wonderful and I love being a part of it.

Also, guess who’s traveling agaiiin? Yup, this girl is going on another adventure, which means more blog posts and more photographs! I feel like everything from now on is going to be one giant adventure, and even though I’m obviously excited, I’m also a little overwhelmed. Especially with academics at the back of my mind.

Anyways, I’ll catch y’all later, hopefully soon. Follow me on my social media (handles linked below) to stay updated and for the behind-the-scenes part of my life.

Travel bucket list – The Wanderlust Series

If you’ve seen my previous posts, I’m sure you can tell that I love traveling. If you haven’t, well, now you know. I mean honestly who wouldn’t enjoy travel? It’s so therapeutic and relaxing.  Today I decided to share my travel bucket list (that I just made cuz why not) with you guys. And also, since I just made this like 2 days ago, it’s kinda incomplete. I’ll do an update on it later on. Let’s just hope I don’t get lazy and completely forget about it.

Also random thought/fact: I’m the type of person that has speech typos. I make ‘typos’ while speaking. Like, speakos. I’m sorry (only like 5%), ignore this and carry on.

Surviving on excitement – The Wanderlust Series


I love aeroplane views.

It’s been a really long day and to say I’m exhausted would be an understatement. I guess the only thing that actually kept me awake today was the excitement I got from traveling. Honestly, I’m really happy to be spending time with the family.  The best (and also worst) part is that I have no network, and so I don’t – well I can’t – use my phone much at all. Why it’s the best part? Because then I get to actually take in my surroundings and have an even better experience. Why is it the worst part as well? Because I miss my jaaaaakey. Oh well.


Because idk.

I’m going on an adventure – The Wanderlust Series

Hii. My family and I are going on a little trip for the weekend, but I would like to think of it as an adventure – I’m going on an adventure. I even made a tiny song thing about it because that’s how excited I am.

Traveling -or adventures – make me happy; I love exploring/wandering/traveling, and all the experiences they bring with. Also, they give me great stories to tell later on. It helps to get me out of my comfort zone and to find things that I didn’t even know I was looking for. It’s just amazing all-in-all. From the excitement of being in the airport and the thrill of being in an airplane to hotel rooms with super comfy beds and an amazing gym (sorry but I had to) – it’s an experience worth having over and over again. For these next few days, I’m starting a new blog series called the wanderlust series because why not.


Talk soon,
