"Long time, no see" is a pretty appropriate expression to start this post with, isn't it? It's been a while since I've posted here, but I'm finally back and ready to make up for lost blog time. And how better to start than with a quick update on what's been going on at planet Nelle? Here goes!
I cut my hair. And it's probably one of the best decisions I've made in a while. There's nothing more symbolic of a fresh start than making a radical change to your look (as long as you really love it, mind!) and it's been a while since I've felt this good about something AND myself. Besides, it is practical as hell and I'm a practical girl.
I've been in post-Infinity War shock. Think of me as overly enthusiastic all you want, but I loved the latest Avengers film so much that I've been enjoying almost nothing else than superhero film nights (and a second viewing of IW) for the last two weeks. Still not over it. Nor over this:
I've deliberately been taking some offline time to think. About all sorts of things, really. Where I wanted to go with this blog, what I should spend more time on and just life in general. Don't worry, I won't go into all that stuff (for now, muhaha), but I truly feel like it was a necessary step to find myself again instead of constantly worrying about posting something 'pretty enough' on all those social networks on a daily basis. That and spending considerately (and quite spontaneously) more time with friends and family has been a real treat lately.
I've been gathering ideas. A notebook full of them and I can't wait to share all these posts with you!
I was being a total baby about my upcoming (and by that I mean the one after this year's) birthday. Yes, I am already freaking out about becoming 30*. Laugh it up, fuzzballs. In short, taking some offline time to think also means that you think about too many things all of a sudden: what you've done with your life up until now, what you could have done differently, and so on and so forth. This is the first time I'm sharing all that, by the way, but I'm glad to say that I am coping with it. Why? Because I just know I'm not the only one who's ever been there. Because it's a totally silly thing to worry about but actually quite convenient at the same time. Nothing says << reality flash! >> more than the big 3-0, "she says now". Wait till I'm 39, that'll be interesting, haha!
I've been thinking about finally starting up a side-hustle. I've had a taste of what it's like to write while earning a bit of money off of it and I don't think anything has ever made me happier so... Advice, tips, anything: send them my way!
Can't wait to talk to you again soon!
* all of this DESPITE the fact that I really want to throw an epic party when the moment arrives. It truly is going to be quite legendary, just you wait.
