…starting you blog anew

It’s almost the end of December — so how do I recover the many days that this blog has been left untouched. I could give you a lot of reasons why I haven’t been updating lately —

The Sad, Melodramatic Truth
I have been busy with life, particularly saving a dear uncle’s life who suffered a stroke. Without a family, without health care insurance, without anything to his name — someone had to be the decision-maker and make all the financial and health decisions for him the whole time he was confined in a hospital. Guess who that was?

The Painful Reality
Truth be told, there are instances where I thought of finally giving up blogging. I mean, what am I to say to still catch your interest? Sometimes, I run out out of things to say or write. Or worse, I have a great idea only for me to self-edit the rough draft and click the “trash” button instead of “publish.” But no matter what I did, I simply can’t let go of this space. This has been my little haven for more than three years and I can’t imagine not having the avenue to share my thoughts. Also, it tickles my hardened, blackish heart to know that people take the effort to read what I write. I don’t need to be famous or blog for profit — having people read my posts and comment. That’s reward enough for me.

The Excuse
I have been too busy with work. Getting promoted as department head had its perks but also a lot of drawbacks. Not having time (to even brush your teeth!) for anything, much less update a blog has become a convenient excuse.

Eventually, I decided it’s about time I change the tone and angle of how I present my little adventures through life. While I still won’t be able to share about my the glitzy lifestyle of the rich and famous (which, I am neither) — I can still assure you of unabashed, unapologetic views to life. As my new title says about this blog, you may use this as a guide — but only if you are ready to a life of constant chaos, adventures and mortifying moments that can leave you pining for anonymity.

I am glad to be still with you and I hope my future posts can guide you through your wild abandon and through this cycle called life.

I am so glad to be back 🙂
