Life Logs: October 2022

December 31, 2022

πŸ’ƒ Experiences

  • Running a set of new routines for a few weeks. Yes, it only lasted for a short time. πŸ˜… I think I did that common mistake of trying to do a lot of things in a limited amount of time. I tried doing intermittent fasting, exercising at night + taking a warm bath after, and sleeping with positive affirmations playing. I guess it was difficult for me to sustain all of these new routines all at once, and so I let go of them all at once. πŸ˜…
  • Interacting with a band I liked on IG. This is one of the reasons why I love being a fan of indie bands -- I get to have intimate interactions with them. ✨
  • Spending a whole weekend cramming. I hate myself for doing this, and also... I hate myself for repeating this. I feel like I'm stuck in this cycle and that I'm not learning the lesson. Again and again, I'll come out of the weekend and face Monday with already exhausted energy and no time to recharge. I'm experiencing burn out but I am the one at fault.
  • Having my impostor syndrome validated. I feel like it's not even appropriate to label me as someone with impostor syndrome. I feel like I am a legit impostor, I feel like I am a fraud, for real. It's the worst feeling in the world. For sure, it will take me months to years to recuperate.
  • Dealing with a chaotic life. Everything was just out-of-place during this time. My task plate is full to the brim, I didn't have time for myself, I wasn't able to deal with personal tasks (didn't have time to even write on this blog 😭). My sleep routine was a total wreck and I was in a terrible mood most of the time. I think it's safe to say that I was not my best self during this time.
  • Participating in The 1975 new album Twitter listening party. For some time, I felt high vibrations because I was just so happy listening to the new songs. Ross and Jamie (the band's bassist and manager) even retweeted my tweets. I surely had serotonin boosts during that listening party. πŸŽ‰
  • Purchasing a BDJ Dare to Dream Kit. I purchased my first BDJ Planner last year, and it served me well in 2022. This is why I got motivated to get another one for 2023! This time, it's bigger and better, because I purchased for myself the "Dare to Love" kit. I'm super happy with this purchase, and I'm planning to blog about that soon! πŸ’—

⛰️ Accomplishments / Milestones

  • We were able to spay our other cat, mommy Myeowers. 😻
  • I bought an aircon for our other room in the house. No more sweaty summers (only higher electric bills πŸ˜…)!
