Yes, I know, it’s been a long time since the last time I blogged. In fact, that small notice about my parent theme going wack shouldn’t even be called a blog entry. But here I am now, past midnight, because I just felt like writing something before I head to bed.
But, I have one (small) good news to share.
As mentioned before, Symmetry is my new sub-blog dedicated to health, beauty, culture related to both health and beauty, and my minor loves of coffee and tea. After several months of going through different layout changes, color scheme changes, using the right images, creating my own images, and other types of major formatting, I’ve finally done it. I may not have that much content as of now because I’m still gathering all of my handwritten notes about certain products and other features that I do plan to put up, therefore expect a lot of Coming Soon notices on each page.
I hope you would take some time to come and visit. Please feel free to leave a comment if you need to. Aside from the lack of content, let me know if there are things that I can improve layout-wise. In that way, I’ll have a better idea the next time I start making another theme overhauling.
As mentioned before in my previous entries, Symmetry is my very first addition to The ADRICULOUS Life (TAL) Network. I thought about separating these series of life-related blogs away from my general collective in a way that I may end up owning two types of collectives. But, I haven’t really gotten through the overhauling of my collective or the rest of my sites. I have been extremely busy doing what I seriously need to do for myself and for my family that I barely have time to do the things I love, let alone just hanging out in social media, wasting my time reading other people’s personal dramas being broadcasted on my wall.1 But finally, here it is!
Speaking of being extremely busy…
I have been AWOL all this time because I really needed some time off from anything related to social media.2 I cut myself from (almost) everybody on purpose because of the time needed to do the more priority things that I seriously need to do.3 This means I need my serious me time to do the things that I should be doing, focusing on those following things, rather than slacking off or even getting myself distracted by social media, or worse, prioritizing other people’s needs over my own needs.4 I need a serious refresh, which means that I have to do whatever necessary to finally rid myself of so many distractions.
I know that those who know me well understand why I need to do this. I can’t surround myself with things that are becoming (or have become) toxic.5 I know that everyone, at some point, would want to have time for themselves without any distractions. Some would love to work on the things they need to work on while living in peace with no unnecessary distractions. Today, I’m one of those people.
Why? Because I need my solitude. I’m not lonely or anything, I’m always surrounded by the people I love, the people I trust, and the people I respect (and vice versa on all three). And because I’ve finally done my task of ridding all the unnecessary toxic distractions, I am happy with my solitude. There are those who understand why I need this, as they also know themselves that they would go through this same period too. I’m not the type to just bug people from out of the blue and the only reason why I had to bug them was to seriously bug them about my own personal issues and then complain about them. I do like to share what I discovered for that day, and if they’ve got the type to talk, they will reply eventually, sooner or later. The people I find annoying are those who would say something, and if I’m not there replying or just too busy to reply, they would say something again wondering “Are you there? Answer!”, etc. The more these people start to get demanding, the more I want to avoid them.
When I have the time, I’ll come by and visit blogs or say hello. Feel free to say hello also, even though I may not respond immediately. All that’s needed is respect for our own personal time and space.
Well then, it’s 2:30 a.m. Time for me to slumber. Till next time.
On the sidenote...
- and even then, when I take breaks, I don’t even go to social media except for a few occasions. I would be either analyzing a few of my Korean skincare products that I just recently purchased or currently using, play video games as always (FFXV on PS4 and The Sims 4 on the PC), or reading books/eBooks. [↩]
- except for Instagram. I love photography. [↩]
- Take note the three words in bold and italic. [↩]
- unless if they’re family members or local friends [↩]
- maybe I’m using the wrong word but I really need room to breathe [↩]
