Hola! I’m back!
As the title says, it’s been too long since last I’ve been here. Last post was actually November, gosh!
With the holidays (Christmas and New Year) coming and going, the launch of Cataclysm and life happening, I just wasn’t able to find time to come up with any decent writing. Plus, include laziness, a boring life (more on than later) and a writer’s block, I’m not surprised I ended up with a half-dead blog.
But I’m back, or at least trying to be back anyway, haha!
I sort of gave GeekGirlManila.com a make over, if you noticed. Just changed the theme, tho it looks similar to the old one. But this theme (Arras WordPress Theme) is easier to manage, so I’m happy.
The hubby and I recently moved to our own place, too. It’s definitely smaller than what I’m used to but I think it’s perfect for just the two of us. It makes cleaning a whole lot easier, too. And trust me, cleaning is an activity entirely foreign to me. Same with cooking ;)
Moving in day!… We moved into what used to be a quaint 2BR condo. It’s 1BR now since we broke down the wall. So we have one big bedroom, 1 bath, the kitchen, dining and a living space.
The day after the move in. We had to quickly set up the house since we had a housewarming with our families the next day. Ended up sleeping at 4AM in the morning on Move In day!
Most recent set up :) We managed to sell the other dining set that was taking up space. We originally wanted a Japanese minimalist theme that’s why we bought the dark wood dining set. But the whole renovation for that particular interior design was way over our budget. So we opted for a modern industrial theme instead, hence the concrete wall. But we might still keep a Japanese theme in the bedroom since we got a nice Japanese bed :)
We still need a lot of things, like a sofa set or a couch. A closet, stove, washing machine and shelves, shelves, shelves!
Aaaaah. No more moms to prepare our food, and helpers to wash the dishes and make our beds so that’s less time for me to be on the computer nowadays…
… HA! Who am I kidding, I’m still practically on the computer ALL the time, but maybe an hour or two less than usual, haha ;)
But on a serious, I really had a major overhaul on my daily routine.
It used to be: wake up -> eat lunch -> go back to room and use the computer the whole day -> eat dinner -> go back to room -> sleep. Insert taking a shower, occasionally.
Now it’s: wake up at noon -> feed Nachos -> prepare my own food (microwave, microve, microwave) -> eat -> take Nachos on a poop run -> wake Artie up -> prepare Artie’s food (if I’m in the mood, haha) -> wash dishes -> make the bed -> take a shower (sometimes, hehe) -> go back to room and use computer -> feed Nachos -> prepare dinner -> eat -> wash dishes -> go back to room -> sleep.
But I’m welcoming the whole change. Since I get to move around more and do more activities like walking and washing dishes, it’s actually helping my recovery.
Well, that’s about it for my ‘I’m Back!’ post. Hopefully, I’ll be able to write more often and regularly how it is to be domesticated in the geekiest way possible!
