Update! What’s Been Happening So Far

Update! What’s Been Happening So Far

Hello… Yes, I know, it’s been such a long while since I last posted. Seeing that I have a few minutes to spare, I wanted to just drop in and give you an update of what’s been going on in my life so far.


Remember how I set a few goals for myself at the start of the year? Well, looking back at those goals, I realised that I have reached a few, changed some and sadly NOT managed to meet some others.

  • Getting a teaching position


This one got answered and in fact, I was lucky enough to land myself some casual relief teaching positions before getting a full time position in August. It has been such an interesting experience and something I guess I won’t trade for anything else in the world. I mean seriously, even though I do b*tch and moan about a few things (who doesn’t?!), how many people actually get a chance to live their dream and get paid for it? Being a teacher has always been one of my dreams – yes weird I know – and I’m loving how I can share my knowledge as well as learn from what I’m teaching and whom I’m teaching.

  • Running a 1/2 marathon


I did not get to reach this goal but I did run the 10k again this year. Realistically it was impossible for me to run the 1/2 having not had much time to train at all.  So I had to face reality and accept the fact that it’ll just have to be postponed for now.  While I was rather disappointed with myself, I did set myself another goal instead – to run the 10k with an improved running time from last year. And I did. In fact another “win” was the fact that I managed go beyond my fundraising goal of $250 for the ASRC this year!  Thanks to some generous donations by friends and colleagues. Besides that win, I also got to run with two of my friends – Tine from Beautyholics Anonymous who was running her first ever 10k and Geek who ran her first half!  Well done girls!  I’m so incredibly proud of you!

  • Going to the gym at least once a week

Well, well, well… What can I say except my fitness regime has gone down the toilet during the second half of 2016.  I could blame it on the lack of time, but to be completely honest it’s just plain laziness on my part. The lack of motivation. I did however manage to go to the gym… ONCE!  Yes, ONCE. I’m planning on finishing my contract and then cancelling my membership.  Following from that, I’m hoping to sign up for some personal training again.  Hopefully.

  • Organising makeup, styling workshops and meet and greet

Where do I start? I had the full intention of carrying out the makeup and styling workshops. I contacted brands earlier this year to see if they would be interested in being a part of the workshop but without success.  I’m guessing it’s because my blog isn’t big enough. Doesn’t have enough reach. I’m not that popular.  Reasons I totally understand.  So I’m afraid I won’t be having a makeup and styling workshop this year after all.

As for the meet and greet?  Well, I’m hoping it’ll happen still.  I just need to organise the time, place and people to come and meet me of course!  So stay tuned.
