Adulting is hard

so says this woman (me) who has been legally one for some 1.5 decades. Face palm much?

What can I say - have been spared the full slew of responsible lifestyle choices, huge purchases and mortgages, till now, and with work often being at full load, breakneck speed, I can't help feeling a tad overwhelmed at times.

Bleah. Well, in the grand scheme of things, it's all really exciting and I do find it fun most of the time, except in certain moments when it all just feels a bit much.

So like the responsible mature adult I am, I suck it up and conjure a whingey post here, like the princess I am.

Still don't feel like an adult, oof.

A hop, skip and jump

Back to present blogging. :D

How many of you have seen this coming? Hurhurhur.

Well, thank you for not rolling your eyes in my face, and just going along as I keep going around in circles, stubbornly running myself deeper and deeper into this deficit writing debt.

What matters is now, and to keep going.

I will still endeavour to finish the backup posts, but no more pressure, so I don't have any excuses to write about what is happening, or has happened today, or yesterday. :)

So here we go again. :)

Starting the holiday: Slow the pace

After travelling for over 12 hours via two flights, AB and I really needed to stretch out the legs from all that sitting around, and took a stroll out to the beach which was a short 10 minute walk from his parents' place in Bordeaux where we stay for this trip.

It's so refreshing to walk down a near-empty beach, taking in the sparkle of the sun reflecting off those blue waters, breathing that clean sea-scented air, and looking down at the time to see that it's nearly nine pm and the sun was just starting to set.

I always love summer in non-equatorial regions. Those long daylight hours make you feel like there is just so much to do, and you actually have the time to do them - even when you have a tow of procrastination monkeys always out to distract you. Heh.

The blues

The greens

A random passerby - love this candid shot!

en vacances!

Excited to be on a long awaited vacation! While it felt like not too long ago that we went to Taipei with AB's parents, the past months have been such a churn that I really needed a proper break. And this vacation involves lots of chilling out, pigging out and pure basking in the French summer weather, definitely what I needed.

The Boss sent me a whatsapp on the evening of the flight to wish me a happy holiday, and admonished, "DO NOT ANSWER EMAILS UNNECESSARILY!" Yup, in caps too. Haha. Great to have such bosses. 

So here is my very Singaporean breakfast, on the flight to France. Couldn't resist ordering when I spotted it on the menu. It was decent but I still much prefer the hawker versions I grew up with. Sambal was legit though! :D

Time for some 19 days of (mostly) offline days. Woohoo. 

Singapore Airlines' rendition of the local fried carrot cake. Not bad at all!

Two by two

The latest of my attempts to catch up on my posts here. Heh. I can't decide whether I should be impressed or exasperated by myself by the various times I have tried and not managed to stick with a proper posting routine. But I shall persevere still. :D

So this idea came about as I was overwhelmed thinking about the backlog piling up, and feeling like I may never get up to speed with my content here - some days I just want to write about things happening now, but then I think of all the catch up I needed to do and wonder if I will even remember what I wanted to say by the time I get to "now". Yet, I don't want to just "heck it" and pick up from here. Oof.

And this is what I am planning to do now, post an up-to-date post (or two), and also a historical one from where I am trying to pick up from. That way everytime you go back by a post or two, you are still catching up on my "catch up". Theoretically it's a sound plan eh?

Let's see.

Here we go, again. :D
