May Obsessions

Saturday, June 11, 2016


Here I am sitting on my bed with my laptop on my lap, hoping to finish some writing projects that have long been ignored. I have a confession to make, I've been feeling blah about blogging. I love writing but when it comes to editing, I'm the worst. The perfectionist side of me keeps telling me that my writing sucks and isn't blog-worthy. Oh horrible feeling I'm telling ya.

Last night I've decided to take a different approach to blogging. I used to schedule my writing time and made myself a list of posts that I had to do. Obviously this system didn't work. Instead of feeling enthusiastic about blogging, I felt like it's another obligation that I had to fulfill. Impromptu writing works best for me so far so I'll be doing more of this from now on. I hope this works!

4 Months in Retrospect: Developing New Habits

Wednesday, May 18, 2016


I can’t believe we’re already in the fifth month of 2016! I wish time could slow down a bit. At the beginning of this year, I promised myself to keep track of my life progress in a journal. Ever since I moved back to Indonesia, I kinda fell off track. I lost my focus and I was so scared I would never achieve my goals. At one point I knew this kind of mindset would not help me at all. I had to wake up from all these negative noises and make a change.

A few months back I did a little experiment with some leftover veggies and tadaaa, this Barley Almond Salad recipe came up. That was the first time I ate barley (I know right?!) and despite I’m not a big fan of its flavor, this salad still came out good!
