Day 14 – How I’m doing: Life Update

Rigozo

Holla,

Welcome to February! The month is dedicated to love, romance, and heartbreak. (Most of us get all three of them every other month anyway).

It’s great. And I want to give an update on how the year has been so far.

How I expected it to be, how it has been, and how I’m doing. A little bit of this and that.

Okay, let me start from the beginning.

I was really looking forward to the new year – no new year resolutions though because I suck at them. Just general plans on how I wish to spend the year. Most of it was geared towards discovering myself – career-wise because I’m still swimming in deep waters.

So, this year, I was going to put in the work, watch how I do it, and make the necessary adjustments.

Sidebar: One thing I’ve learned is to make plans in this order: Make plans – dive into plans – watch as things fall apart or work – and have zero expectations. It is the way I’m able to keep my sanity and save myself from heartache (most times).

I’m brilliant!

How I expected the year to be.

  • Find a niche/niches.
  • Take up projects.
  • Create stunning online portfolio.
  • Get offers left and right.
  • Create a mailing list.
  • Kick off personal branding.

How the year has been

  • I quit my job – I haven’t found a new one yet.
  • My phone got bad – I haven’t bought a new one yet.
  • I’m taking a content marketing course (I narrowed down my digital marketing).
  • Started creating a portfolio on my google drive…baby steps.
  • School on my mind.
  • I’ve not been taking pictures – It’s killing me.
  • Still auditing my blog. The home page is almost complete but I keep tweaking it. I plan to add another page like gallery and maybe a library page soon. (The last part is a total rip off from this guy).
  • Editing some of my old writings. It’s a cringe-fest, but I’m powering through.
  • Spending time on skin and hair care. Omg it is so much work to take care of my 4c hair, and I’m fighting breakouts and acne scarring every other day.
  • I started a 30-days writing challenge. This post is for day 14 and…hold up! Is today February 14th?

Oh my God! Is today, Valentine’s Day?

Sidebar again: Okay, for a moment there I thought that today was really Valentine’s Day and I freaked out. Not because I’ve made plans with any man, which I’m guessing is normal, right? Okay! I freaked out because it felt like this year is playing a fast one on me. I understand that I’ve been offline for a while, and this makes me off-balance. No problem, I’m getting used to it. But that’s no excuse for the year to go by without me noticing it. Not cool!

How am I doing?

I’m doing okay.

Despite how crazy things are at the moment, I’m doing okay.

Thank you for reading.

Love, hugs, and kisses.

PS This is not fiction, you know that right?
