I know, I know it’s been a while. I’ve been meaning to write but something would always come up. Or maybe that’s just me dodging any plans to update this blog.
We’re on the last week of October and how is it even still possible that 2020 hasn’t stopped with its ~surprises.~ But you know what, I’m not going to dwell on that because I refuse to believe that we are going to end this year like this.
The last time I actually published stuff here, I was pretty consistent (READ: 30-day challenge and series of Alaska posts) and then things got busy. I had to go back to work full-time and a new term for grad school started. Now, as I’m writing this, things are starting to get quite hectic again. I spent my entire morning attempting to finish a paper with only five prompts (that I started working on last Saturday but oh well here we are) and ugh I just keep getting sidetracked.
Sometime in June, I decided to get full bangs. I actually started considering them in April but I was like, eh this is probably just the quarantine blues so I let it go but ended up deciding to get them a month and a half later. I still don’t know how I feel about them and I can’t decide whether I should keep them or grow them out. Okay, moving on…
For the ~first time ever,~ I decided to go on an Instagram hiatus and apologies in advance for sounding all whatever, but it was hard at first. Did I ever mention Instagram was my favourite app like ever? But everything started becoming too much so I thought I had to do something about it. The same with Facebook (though it needed to stay for grad school stuff) and Twitter, which I don’t even check anymore and it’s is crazy because I used to think of Twitter as like my daily source of information that I couldn’t go a day without. Lol social media really does a lot to one’s well-being I tell ya. With that said… I’ve come to the decision to bring this blog back to life (but really though Maddie how many times have you already said this…) and I think it’s a great decision because well, it brings me back to the reason why I started blogging in the first place and because I feel like I need an outlet, you know.
I realised on the way home that I actually don’t have classes this week, thanks to the cancellation today and the short holiday break we’re getting starting on Thursday. I’m all giddy about this now but it’s not going to last because I know asynchronous tasks are on the way. Anyhow, that’s that for school. I am very nervous because the classes that I have for this term are pretty demanding (sorry for the lack of a better term) but I’m also excited because once I get through the term, (and finish all my pending submissions from the term that came to a standstill because of quarantine) I will actually be halfway through graduate school. Wow. Thank you Lord!
I guess that’s basically it for my messy update no one cares about LOL but on the off chance that you’re still here, reading through the end, I’d like to say hello and thank you.
Wait OMG how could I forget. I got a dog! The first time I considered being a dog momma was in June 2018, I think, but after tweeting that, I sort of just forgot about it LOL. There was one night a few months ago that I randomly told my siblings I wanted a dog and they found the perfect little pupper. I honestly didn’t think it through. Since then, I’ve been scooping poop, cleaning up pee, and making sure this perfect baby gets fed!
