Life lately

. Sunday, 16 June 2019 .


It's been quite a week. And then it's been quite a weekend. Actually, I realised today that it's been quite a month. So busy. So hectic. So. Much. To. Do. Is it because we've only got six more months of 2019? I don't know but everyone around me seems to be in the same boat.




I don't really have that much life update at the moment mostly because it feels like all I've been doing is work/thinking about work when I'm not at work. There hasn't been much time for living lately. Yesterday was the first time in a while where I truly felt relaxed! I was up bright and early and went to brunch with my little brother and my friend Simon. We ordered quite a feast at Oyster and Chop but gosh their breakfast fare is so delicious and so well-priced. I'm definitely coming back for more!




We went for a walk around town after to get my brother new shoes and also treat ourselves to some Mecca goodies. I stocked up on my HG Mario Badescu spray and some Lanolips because winter + being sick has been brutal on my lips. I haven't been able to wear lipsticks in ages! I spent the rest of the day assembling a clothing rack and sorting out my closet once and for all. It was oddly relaxing and I can't wait to automate my morning routine by having my clothes on clear display. I also cleared all the clothes off my couch and sat on it this morning while having my breakfast smoothie. Life really is about the little things.




I realised something while I was sat there, though. I'm not the tidiest person in the world and have some hoarding tendencies that I get attached too so I have ended up with quite a lot of stuff. Most especially stuff I have no room for. So downsizing and getting rid of things that do not spark joy is actually really essential for me. And most of the time I get so overwhelmed with tidying (because I don't wanna do it/I don't wanna spend my very little time of not working doing more work instead of relaxing) that I don't want to start. I just kinda pretend the clutter isn't there and I'll do it another day. Then I'd carry on but it was always at the back of my mind and I'd feel guilty for not doing it. It's a cycle. But I realised today that actually the decluttering is only a short investment of time, and when I do get it done, I'll have the free time to enjoy and relax completely without guilt and without that voice in my head saying I should be cleaning. I don't know if I'm explaining this right, but it feels cathartic.




So I'm actually excited to get more decluttering done now because I know after this I'll literally have so much time to do what I want! I started writing fiction again on Saturday night and it felt so good. I'm currently halfway through a book, there are places to sit and write in my flat that's not littered with stuff. It's so silly that I resisted this for so long! I can't wait to get rid of more stuff! On that note - HMU if you need all the things.




This week is a bit hectic but I'm feeling so much more relaxed and ready to handle it this week. But for now I'm off to lounge in the couch (we watched Murder Mystery on Netflix and it was epic) because my dad is launching his own TV show on channel kordia on Free View TV and the pilot is showing tonight! So so proud. Happy Sunday!
