I wanted to write a little bit about how the last few weeks have been going and kinda of give an update on the blog. People might think it my blog just died out or I’ve lost interest in it which is far from the truth . The blog is my little culinary portfolio and it’s in my thoughts everyday , in a little corner of my mind. I miss creating content for it and having the freedom to fill it with recipes and photos they way I want them. My blog feels like the only creative aspect of my life that I’m able to muster up, since I have no other kind of artsy incline .
Since March I’ve been contributing with weekly recipes for a Romanian food blog (this might be news for you or not), so all my blogging time goes into that. I haven’t thought before of the freedom I had with my own content until I got to write for someone else. It has been a terrific experience to add to my blogging and culinary resume, there’s no denying it. And it taught me a bit of discipline and I proved my self that I am able to provide regular content . But it also came with a list of someone’s blogging preferences and constraints . Even when I do get to sit down and write something for the Bunny, I never get to finish it. It never goes past the draft stage .
I can hardly wait for the time when I’ll reclaim my blogging time , I’m counting the days and wishing time would pass faster.
Winter hasn’t helped either with my blogging frustrations. HA! It’s middle of autumn and this cold translates to me as winter blues already . While some are thrilled over pumpkins, hot chocolates and sweaters, I started October with the winter depression. Suddenly, I could no longer wake up early for work, I was starting my day already grumpy and had no energy. But I blamed it on the broken heater cause once we fixed that and our flat was overwhelmed with heat I miraculously felt cheerfuller again. I also made a batch of humongous peanut butter chocolate chips cookies so that helped. However, I made them shamefully big so I didn’t take any pictures. Hey…I was too lazy and too eager so make 30 cookies when I could make 15. I call it time management …efficiency !
Ummm…I also got promoted at work recently….yeeey. During the summer I worked my butt off to finish my projects and make sure I got that promotion. And now…well, I have to keep the same working standards. It can drain me out sometimes mentally , but I’ve got my relaxation methods….like re-watching FRIENDS for the millionth time . And even if I do have my own personal ambitions, I believe in good work ethics, being responsible and reliable and doing a good job no matter what. I believe it builds your professional reputation. You never know when you might encounter your managers or colleagues in a different setting. It might help if they perceive you as professional and trustworthy. I fully comprehend the difficulty of working day after day envisioning your dream job, but think of this: if you can do well at a meh job, imagine how awesome you’ll be at your dream job .
There’s more things I have to tell you about but maybe on the next post ?! Until then you can check out my weekly recipes here .
