Hello, everyone! Thank goodness I finally found the time to write another entry for The Sunday Currently series. Big thanks to my sister Angel for reminding me about this! So, how has my life been lately? I admit it's hard to keep up with blogging when I have just so many things to do. Church work has been hectic the past few weeks as I've been assigned to send e-mails and to help co-ordinate at our classes every Friday. I also got to teach multiple times the past month! Not that I'm counting, but I must say that I've never been this busy before, haha! I'm honestly down with cold & flu right now — just like my mom and dad which usually happens every time the weather drastically changes here in the UAE, so no worries! God's just amazing! Aggggggh, my words will just fail to describe just how awesome He is in my life. Okay, enough with my unfiltered thoughts. Here's the Sunday Currently vol 13:
Hello, everyone! So many things have been happening in my life lately. Everyday, I am learning how to live with the intention of making every God-given day count. I purposely cut short the time I use social media and I'm so happy to say that when we step away from the so-called busyness in life, it's where we can draw closer to God and He to us.
My mom has started working on her temporary job two weeks ago making almost all of her tasks as a housewife fall into my arms. The adjustment's very difficult as my mom hasn't been working since '09. I do help whenever I can, but I never cooked for our family full time. I do ironing, but my mom used to do the laundry. I never thought of what to eat every meal and what went missing at home. What needs to be bought and what time do we feed the pets we have. I've never been used to trimming our cat's fur balls either. There are so many uncomfortable moments that leaves me so anxious every single day. With my dad busy on his business and my sisters on their daily activities, being a stay-at-home 20 year old can surely suck at times. I don't know if you can relate, but I've never found myself this busy like ever before. I honestly feel like a mother more than a sister or a daughter when mom's not around. And take note, I've had to also squeeze in time for studying. People think doing house chores are so easy, but think twice. With the extreme summer heat across the country, I doubt if you'll ever want to do something sweat-producing, haha! This Sunday, I am just feeling so lazy like the cat above. We just had our lunch & so I got this little time to write before I start to collect dry clothes, iron and/or cook for dinner tonight. *smirks* Here's another Sunday Currently entry...
Hello, everyone! How did last week go for you? I hope y'all had a great one. Mine went fine except for the last few days. A friend we know recently passed because of a car accident (or avoiding a car accident rather). It was heartbreaking to know that just a few days apart would be Father's day. His children were childhood friends of ours and it was devastating to know how they'd feel after the loss. So for the drivers here in the UAE, please be very alert and careful when driving. It doesn't mean that when the road is clear, you should relax as this is what often causes the accident — when you didn't see things coming along. Losing a loved one may be horrible but let's say that at the end of it all, we will all have to say goodbye to this earthly home and be welcomed in the next life— where pain and sadness won't exist anymore. Moving on, I thought of sharing with you a Sunday Currently entry because one, it's Sunday and two, I couldn't think of a new post yet :P
Here's my Sunday Currently entry:
Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having a great Sunday so far.. It's been a month since I last wrote an entry in here and I absolutely feel guilty for not being able to come up with something to write. May has been a pretty toxic month for me and my family. The first week of May was spent shifting things in our new place — or new room shall I say. Imagine having to meet course deadlines while embracing the pain of sore shoulders that came from carrying heavy things! Anyway, to top off the month of May, some good things happened like preparing the decorations for Zach, my *ehem* godson. (I'm feeling so old but yes) We spent the rest of May making slideshows, cutting off crafts for decor, buying stuff and literally just putting things to places. Another event that happened is the awesome Hillsong x Voice International thanksgiving dinner that took place last 27th of May. The food was delish and also, it has been great meeting the volunteers I got to work with during Hillsong United's concert in Dubai last 28th-29th of April. Read about that here. Lastly, the the birthday celebration we have all been waiting for happened just 2 days ago (June 2) and the picture above is the Piñata where kids (mostly adults) joined in and had so much fun catching all those candies. Long story short, May may have been a lot stressful but maybe it's been the most productive too. Here's another entry for the Sunday Currently. Enjoy!
Hello lovely people! It has seriously taken such a long time before I can come up with another blog post for today. I have felt super uninspired the past few days and I just wasn't into blogging. For whatever reason. I know that I just lacked the motivation to get up and start writing. So...here's my Sunday Currently entry.
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough.
