May was a whirlwind of emotions – from trying to earn from blogging to being a workaholic to learning how to laundry clothes to adjusting every aspect of my life. May has been a lot to handle. There’s a lot of stories to tell. Will this post be enough to document everything?
If we were having coffee, I’d remind you that I have WordAds running on my blog. I have low expectations on this one. However, when May rolled in and I checked how much I earned and saw $0.01, I was so excited and hopeful that my expectations got a little high, lol. I ended up checking it from time to time in hopes that April’s revenues would be a dollar at least. It was only a couple of days ago that April’s revenue reflected and lo and behold it was still $0.01. The painful lesson I learned here is that I’m probably not going to earn from blogging and there’s nothing wrong with that. The main reason why I blog is to document and share my story. It isn’t to earn (although if I earn it would be great). It’s just a funny story and reminder that sometimes what we want won’t always happen. The road might be long and disheartening but never forget to look on the bright side. Just look at all my amazing blogging friends and my goodness, the lessons I’ve learned through it all. Regardless of the monetary gain I may or may not end up having, blogging is worth it.
If we were having coffee, I probably wouldn’t want to share with you my work-related stress but since you want all the juicy stuff, I’ll still share it with you. 😉 Work has been stressful. There’s just too much on my plate. I’m also aiming for a promotion since I feel that the tasks I’m doing are for the next level already. I’m pushing myself a lot. The early weeks of May were extremely stressful but nowadays I’m getting used to the drill. I’m not going to expect any promotion this year but I will try my best. I really want the promotion for money. I’m already feeling I’m doing the next level work, it might as well reflect on my payslip, right?
If we were having coffee, here’s the fun update you all want to know. How is life a month after moving in with the hubby? It’s been a rollercoaster of sorts. There are a lot of ups and downs. Let’s start with the fun stuff, chores. I hate doing them but it needs to be done. From doing the laundry to mopping the floor to cleaning up after us, there are a lot of things that need to be done. I dislike how the weekends don’t feel like the weekends anymore. We haven’t been on a date since we moved here! T_T I know, I know, we have to find a way to include it in our lives but guys how do you do it?
Cooking has been a good way to relieve my stress lately. I love cooking and I am hoping that if I do this consistently I could be confident enough to actually invite people over and cook for them, lol. I did post about trying Tasty recipes. I’m going to turn it into a series. Please pray for me! I’m really loving cooking but I’m scared too. Food isn’t cheap and I feel like I’m just playing sometimes, lol. What if it’s not edible?
Remember all that brouhaha over commuting last month? Well, it’s still an issue for me. It’s an even bigger issue now since the rainy season is almost here! I’m not sure how to survive with Grab being unreliable lately and commuting under the rain. I’m getting slightly worried about it but I’ll probably worry about it more once the rainy season begins officially. Can I waterproof myself?
If we were having coffee, I’m going to end this month by saying that I’m declaring June as reading month. Not only do I have a lot to read (books and ebooks) but also my husband finally brought over his book collection! I am so excited to start reading again.
