I had written about how much I’ve loved Alex Nevksy’s latest album. Because of the language barrier, I obviously don’t get the nuances of the lyrics, so sometimes I listen without noticing. But just last week, this one stuck out to me. Hard.
“We’ve made them believe in love.” I know this song is dark, but sounds happy. And I like that.
Well, today is my blog’s 6-month anniversary!! *pets it* When I started writing it, I wrote about how I was a failed blogger and I did wonder to myself how long I’d be able to keep this one going.
And despite starting a full-time job in the the middle of all this, I still have managed to keep up posting consistently. It hasn’t been easy, and a lot of the time, it feels like a second job. (I come home from a long day of work…to do more work…) But I’ve done it. And I’m proud and feel accomplished.
So, today’s question:
What is something that you’ve accomplished recently that you’re really proud of?
It doesn’t have to be blog-related. It can be anything. Let’s toot our own horns a bit. 🙂
It’s no secret I love to travel. And it’s no secret I have a lot of makeup, and travel pretty high maintenance. But the bane of my traveling existence is trying to fit all my makeup brushes into cosmetics bags. I have this ONE brush that is just too long and it’s a struggle every time I travel.
I’ve thought of buying a travel brush kit, but there’s invariably something missing in one that I need. Plus, I’ve invested in high-quality brushes, so why use something inferior while traveling?
So many of my knitting friends have these beautiful rolls to house their knitting needles, and I think it’s high time I invest in a roll for my makeup brushes!
Of course, I turned to Etsy, as I do for all my craft-related needs. I found a few potentials.
You guys, I might be getting old, but I was pretty underwhelmed by Oscar fashion this year! Even the dresses that everyone else loved, even the ones that I liked, I wasn’t blown away by anything. Not really.
I really missed color! And even the dresses in color, I found the designs a bit “meh.” Sigh.
Good thing the show was hilarious enough to cure my disappointment!
What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to blogs (of any kind)?
For me, my absolute biggest pet peeve is when the blogging system doesn’t notify you of replies to comments. It just drives me nuts when you can see the blogger clearly invested in a nice theme, nice design elements, is quite successful, yet if you want to know if they’ve replied to you, you must go and constantly check the entry. Grrrrrrr.
