Short hiatus

Current mood:

I love Fridays! It’s my favorite day of the week because when the sun sets it’s time to keep the Sabbath holy:

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. (Exodus 20:8)

Hello, wonderful readers! I’ve been dreading this, but I need to take a break from blogging. I am battling with anemia and lately, I’ve been really exhausted and although I am trying to troop on, I’m currently like…

This morning, I was listening to ‘My Little Universe’ by Depeche Mode:

My little universe is expanding… slowly
Those who know me say I’m growing every day
Beautiful emptiness surrounds me
I take small steps
I’m making progress in an unspecific way

Here I am king
I decide everything
I let no one in
No one
No one
No one

And I was like, ‘Yes! That is exactly what I need. I need to be in my own universe for a while’, so I’ve decided to announce a hiatus.

I would not be blogging or engaging in social media from Saturday to Monday God’s willing. I plan to come back on Tuesday and catch up with all the blogs. I may schedule a few posts for the time that I’ll be offline. So, I’m going to take my jacket off…

…and just relax for those few days. I’m going to miss you guys, but I must do this.

Take care, stay safe, walk with God and have a great weekend.

Random musing: My love for movies is diminishing.

It’s been a long time coming too.

Just as music is not an important part of my life anymore, the movies are following in this footstep. I grew up listening to Michael Jackson (thanks to my father) and I eventually branched off to the Backstreet Boys, Sade, Depeche Mode, Aerosmith etc. Now, I listen to Michael W. Smith and a little bit of MJ, Sade or Depeche Mode. Whenever I listen to a song, I pay attention to the lyrics and if it’s not meaningful, then I’ll tune that song out.

And now, I’m beginning to feel the same way about movies. I don’t feel passionate about films as before. I’ve only been to the cinema twice for the year and those movies did not live up to their standards. Just last year, I was super excited for ‘Wonder Woman’ but decided to skip it when it finally opened here. My excitement for seeing the film had entirely vanished. I watch movies to be entertained, but lately, the entertainment does not live up to its standards.

You may ask what about Tom Cruise?

Let’s put it this way: one day, I might be over his acting, but not today. He is the only actor that keeps me coming back for more film after film. Even if the film underwhelms (Rock of Ages), Mr. Cruise gives 110% percent and it is quite impossible to hate that dedication. And he is starring in the movie that I’ve been anticipating since 2015, ‘American Made’. I hope he does Barry Seal justice.

I’ll still watch a movie here or there, but the days for engrossing in them are over. 

 

Tell me a random fact about yourself

Okay, I’ll go first: I’m awkward when it comes to accepting compliments. 

Just recently, a woman gave me my ‘Tom Cruise moment’ (that’s what my colleague and I called it). Without going into so many details, the woman said that she had always wanted to meet me (my colleague thought she was stalkerish? LoL!) to tell me the good things that she said, and I stood there like a stunned dummy before finally mustering up the courage to thank her. 

I turn it over to you. Tell me a random fact about yourself.

Whoa is right! I am looking around here and wondering when did I get so swamped in many things that I have no time to log on, post, or comment on blogs?

On top of that, my laptop has decided to join the party to complicate things. I’m taking it to my IT guy tomorrow God’s willing. In the meantime, while I’m here, I think I’ll have a quick look around.

If I don’t get to your blog today, have no fear I’ll try to get to it before the week is out.

Journal entry #5: I feel the need… the need to fly! ✈️

 :

21st May 2017

I’ve been doing some thinking lately.

I am content with what God has given me: life, family, friends, church, pets, this blog, my job etc. But I’ve been doing some soul searching because I’ve been feeling restless lately, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I am ready to turn another chapter in my life. I am ready to do whatever it takes for me to achieve this goal. 

It is time for me to fly once again.

I keep telling people to do what they love and it’s about time to do something else that I love.

Journal entry #4: Birthday vibes 💙

 :

19th April 2017

I haven’t done one of these entries in a bit! 

Anyway, I have many things to be thankful for this beautiful month. It was a month fill with joy, laughter, and love, and I got to spend it with the best people in the world: my friends and family. 💙

I took a week vacation and during that time, I turned one year wiser. I don’t make a big deal of my birthday; I’m just always grateful to be alive when the BIG day arrives. I am not one to celebrate my birthday, but when in the company of loved ones, how can I pass this up? So on April 19th (nope, not my date of birth. Actually, Suri Cruise shares a birthday with me 😛 ), we descended upon Rizzoni’s at Movietowne, which is my favorite hangout.

It was six of us and it was our first time there. I have to commend the service. Everyone was accommodating as soon as we stepped inside and our hostess was wonderful! In short, service was a 10/10 and we were given a waiting table to return. So whenever they call, we’ll definitely be there. 

My sisters took these photos:

I didn’t have this pizza, but it sure looked yummy!

One of my friends had this. I can’t remember the name of the dish, but she tremendously enjoyed it.

One of my friends just had to let our kind host know that I was celebrating a birthday, and I was serenaded by staff and presented with this delicious vanilla ice cream.

Catch up soon

Hello! I just wanted to thank those who stopped by today to read, like or comment on my posts. I also want to thank my new followers. At the moment, I am exhausted and I need to get some rest. I’ve scheduled some posts for tomorrow God’s willing as well as it is most likely that I won’t be logging on this weekend (who knows? I’ll try for Sunday).

I did not get to read any blogs today, but I hope to catch up soon. I thought if I got around to blogging around my work schedule I would’ve gotten the time to catch up with reading the blogs when I got home, but it wasn’t to be.

And no, I won’t apologize for The Mummy posts. 😛

Take care, stay safe, walk with God and have a great weekend.
