I think last week was the first time I met up with Ms Choester since she came back from Melbourne. We caught up on a lot of things, had a heart to heart session and I was so glad we did. I guess both of us have experienced the same thing when it came to climbing up the blogger ladder and trust me, when you get up really really fast, it does get to your head. We're actually lucky to have our anchors in our men, to bring us back down to the ground.We're both stubborn and quite outspoken, but it can get a little out of hand but I'm so glad we realized that the glitz of this industry isn't why we started writing our thoughts and recording our ordeals online for public viewing. It was the love for writing and sharing experiences that was the core.
I do miss those old days when I was so naive about being a blogger, where I just wrote whatever I wanted to. All I wanted to was for people to relate. I admit that with the increase in viewers, you tend to be more careful with what you write about and how you write it. Somehow you do feel limited, and you gotta learn to suppress and channel your emotions in a certain way. It's almost like people's expectations of you came in a mould or template that you just gotta follow even when you know you don't like it. I don't, however, regret my choices. It did me good and bad too. At least I know I grew out of it, and although I'd love to keep the amount of readership I have currently (and the money can be useful at tough times), I would prefer to be more engaging and entertaining rather than conforming to the norm in public expectations.
Anyways, gotta catch up with more people now that I'm more free and no longer working full-time. I'm currently structuring plans for my pet projects and I'm happy that my man is giving me advice and being very very supportive. I've never seen that much support coming from one person in my whole lifetime, and yes, I'm not being dramatic but it's the truth.
I love being a freelancer, you have time for mini dates. Although the money isn't constant but we work harder cause we know we gotta. Point8cam has been awesome, more than I expected. I like the moments we've spent together, even when building computers. Yes, computers. Geekin it out to the fullest! haha I've met my match! Someone who is just as random, but at the same time can be very grounded when I'm not =P
We recorded ourselves having fun cleaning and building his PC. Watch it!
We surely can be geeks sometimes. The other week, we spent time at Toys R' Us, testing out all the new toys -_-"
You add the colour to my monotone life. You generate my creative juices by being my muse and at the same time inject logic and senses into me. You balance me out, you put the melody in my song, you paint the rainbow in my skies. You never say no, but you keep me grounded. You make me feel sky high but you pull me to the ground when I feel like I'm gonna lose myself out there. You pull me back in when someone pushes me out to the wild. You put my arms around me, spread your wings and protect me. What would I do without you, what more could I ask for than just to be happy with you? I may be the girl that you dreamt about, even before we were together, but you....you're the man I've been looking for all these while.
Oh, Puzzles says hi!
Still sorting out Picasa. I hate to embed stuff I just prefer to upload sigh -_-"
