If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit. – Banksy
How do you like blogging so far? I’ve been blogging for more than a year now, and I really like it… no wait… I LOVE IT!
Although I must admit that there was a time when I almost gave up blogging. As a newbie blogger, I was having a hard time trying to juggle my full-time job, my life, and learning how to run a blog.
Here’s what my typical day (Mon – Fri) looks like:
5:30 am – 6:30 am Get up and get ready for work. Have a cup of coffee with a slice of toast and eggs. Squeeze in some Twitter and Instagram time.
7:00 am – 5:30 pm Work, Work, Work ( I’m an operating room nurse, so it’s usually a non-stop busy day).
6:00 pm – 10:00 pm Dinner with hubby. Blog for a few hours. Watch tv or catch up on my reading. A nice cup of chamomile tea before bed.
My schedule on weekends varies depending on if we need to attend social events or travel somewhere. If we have nothing planned, then I’ll be dedicating that precious time… blogging!
I’ll stay late until the wee hours of the morning. No wonder, after a few months, I was so tired, uninspired, and burned out. I’ve learned from that experience. So now, I step away from my blog if I feel the need to recharge.
Last Saturday, I took a break from blogging. I had a stressful week, and I don’t have the energy to edit drafts or create a new post. I was craving for some ramen, so my hubby and I went to Tanpopo for lunch. We ordered a bowl of Tonkatsu and Beef Stew Ramen. The piping hot noodle was soooo good… it helped melt my stress away!
My hubby and I both love photography. We went to Washington Park and spent the whole afternoon enjoying nature and taking photos of anything that inspired us.
El Loco Mexican Cafe
After strolling around the park, we went to El Loco Mexican Cafe for dinner. We ordered this huge Burrito Grande that’s incredibly filling. To top off the evening, I had a refreshing drink of Piña Colada!
