I recently said on a blog post that I was going to blog daily this December. Guess what, it’s December 2 and I forgot to write yesterday. This explains the tag-filler-post that I published last night.
Truth be told, I have a lot of grand ideas in my head on how I’m going to do blogmas but yesterday was such a busy day (and today too!) that I just had to post a filler post. Taking you back to yesterday, we had a cleaning day. We had to change the bedsheets, do a deep clean of our home (and when I say deep clean I really mean deep clean cause this place is a mess), and restock our pantry and fridge. It was a pretty intense day and boy was I tired. We also went out to buy ourselves a Christmas tree.
Today our plan was to finish decorating the tree. We have glitter all over our newly cleaned floor. Why did I choose decorations with glitter again?
I’m not sure how December will be. I’m a little worried cause it’s going to be my first Christmas married and since my husband and I have different traditions, I’m not sure how things will pan out. We have been putting off discussing our holidays because we don’t know which side of the family we’ll be spending it with… For you married people out there (or even for people who know people who are married), how do you equally distribute family time during the holidays? How do you even do holidays?
It feels like such a first-world country kind of problem but that’s my dilemma today, lol.
On a completely different note, this morning I was watching a Camie Juan video on YouTube and one of the comments caught my eye. The comment goes something like “show us a video where you only spend $50- $60 because lately, all your videos show you eating out when you say you’re poor in NYC.” True to Camie’s natural form, she responds and defends herself. It’s not really a big thing but I do relate to both of them. As the viewer, vlogs that only show the vlogger eating out and spending is not something I like to see cause it makes me jealous and question what the fuck I’m doing with my life. It makes me ask myself, why do I live such a boring life when the vlogger is enjoying her life even if she has previously mentioned how expensive living in NYC is! As the content creator, I feel like I don’t want to document or show the boring parts of my life. I wouldn’t show you my unwashed face while I type away in my pajamas if you get what I mean. But isn’t that kind of attitude, showing only a curated life to your followers, the cause of anxiety and FOMO? We show only the good side that sometimes people think that’s the only side. I don’t know what I’m saying, it’s just that that comment made me wonder how should we share our life online if both the viewer and the content creator has valid points?
I have some weird questions in my head. I’m not sure how I’m going to go about daily blogging but that’s day two for you. See you tomorrow! ❤
