I think the first thing I have to put here is a disclaimer, lol. I got this idea from Victoria. Her version of her random thoughts can be found here. V, if you’re reading this, I’m not making fun of you. On the contrary, your post has somewhat reminded me to properly credit where I get my ideas. It takes less than a paragraph to do so plus more traffic (hopefully) for you and me. For the other bloggers out there, this part is just a beautiful reminder to make the blogging community a fun place to spend your days/nights in by properly giving credit where credit is due! ❤
Anyway, I just wanted to share some of my thoughts by sharing with you how my weekend went. The hubby and I visited his side of the family. Every time we go there, I instantly feel this warmth – like we are one family and I really belong. I’ve always had this notion that having in-laws would be so difficult. That having them would always cause drama in a married couple’s life. But having my husband’s family as my in-laws is the best thing that has ever happened! They are all just so warm and accepting. Plus they are also all so willing to take care of our future babies to the point that my sister-in-law even told me she took a year off to take care of her niece. I mean, who does that?
It’s true, you don’t just marry a person. You marry a whole family! I’m most certainly sure that not all married couples have the same luck as I have but if you don’t, my advice is to always take the high road if possible. I’m saying this because I think that my issues are rooted in the fact that my mom and her in-laws never had a good relationship. She’s always had a form of anger towards my Lola, Lolo, and my Tita for reasons her and my dad will only know. This has, I think, made me scared and skeptical of other people, especially in-laws. I don’t know. Is this normal? I really don’t want to overanalyze because at the end of the day, my in-laws are bomb and I don’t know why I was so scared in the first place!
Okay, on to other things. WordAds have also been on my mind. I have started placing the ads on my blog last March. So far I’ve only earned $0.06, lol. I have zero expectations for this that’s why I can share all this information online. (You earn more if your viewers are from US/Europe area and since I live in the Philippines… 😛 ) However, I was very shocked when the July earnings came in and I got $0. This was the month when I blogged daily, mind you! It’s just weird! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed since I was aiming for a dollar last July, lol. And also, I had more readers from the US. Maybe you really have to click the ad? I’m not sure! At this rate, I’d need 800 years just to be able to have a payout (minimum payout is $100). If you got to this part, go on, click that ad! Help a girl out!
That’s about it. Life has been repetitive but good. It’s been a-ok – just married life, work life, and a bit of blog life. Do you ever feel like life is so repetitive that you need to get out there? That’s exactly how I’m feeling lately. Like, there’s nothing to live for. (Not nothing to live for, live for. Just like life lacks motivation. If you know what I mean. I guess that’s for another post since I have to work now.)
To end everything, what do you think of my Cooking Diaries series? I have a lot of posts for that (good until October). Tell me what you think about it do you want it to be more descriptive, etc? Okay, that’s enough! See you next time! ❤
