    Thank you for reading, sharing and showing blog love

    I don’t like rushed posts. I don’t like writing in a rush (school work aside). It feels like I don’t give my all or my best work. And I also dislike writing just because. That last one was cemented during this challenge.

    I like to feel inspired or motivated in some way. My mood affects my writing heavily. And I have had days during this month when I seriously didn’t feel like writing. But I pushed through. I am glad I did but I don’t know that I’ll necessarily do it again, not to this degree. I like that it got me into the habit of posting more consistently. I am much too lackadaisical considering how much I love writing and the fact that this blog is my baby.

    I also like that it showed me what types of posts you guys respond the best to vs the ones I have the most fun writing. Sometimes, thankfully, they overlap. I plan to write more for you lovely folks in the future.

    I have other posts planned and I will not go back to my old and terrible blog schedule (if you notice me doing this, call me out!) but I will ease up.

    I think for now on, I will post on weekdays mostly, if not only and I plan to incorporate some vlogs at a later date because I feel some things are better said than written and there is really only one way to find out. Also, vlogs will help in you guys getting a feel for my voice more and that’s always good, no? Let’s hope.

    The major point of this post is to bring a close to this challenge chapter by telling all of you THANK YOU! Your comments, feedback and love have been appreciated more than you know. I am still not used to it and I doubt I ever will be but I know I don’t want it to stop. You don’t have to click any of my links and you don’t have to read through my musings or share afterwards. But you do. And it means a lot.

    Thank you and much love.

    Sincerely,

    Nas

    A moment of disconnect

    I’m having one of those moments when my mind feels bothered but unfocused and my soul feel unrest.

    I can’t quite put my finger on what the issue is but I know I know.

    I have moments where something bugs me and, for one reason or another (from momentary external distraction to intentional mental diversion), it gets put on the back burner of my mind. The thing with me where my feelings and thoughts are concerned, is that I am pretty connected to my subconscious so even though I may not be combing over the details of what is bugging me, my mind knows that I am emotionally in a less-than-stellar place and it’s like the elephant in the room of all my musings.

    Something happened today, more likely tonight and more than likely, a couple of things happened and my feelings are still caught up. I know I feel upset and I felt hurt earlier. For the life of me, I cannot remember why! Is this strange? Does this happen to anyone else?

    I’m just gonna give myself time and wait for it to come back and then deal accordingly.

    P.S., I do not plan to continue treating the blog like a diary.

    P.P.S., Sometimes plans change :p

    I hope you Nasmaniacs are doing great. Don’t hesitate to drop a comment (on the blog) but if you continue to comment on any of my social media, I appreciate it just as much!

    Thanks for your love and continued support.

    Why women deserve the world. A period story (but not gross)

    Recently, on a night when I was feeling like hell physically and I was in the process of attempting to rectify that by making myself some sustenance- which had to be preceded by a warm beverage for my stomach which was mad at me through (almost) no fault of my own, I happened to browse the fridge for tools to aid in my quest. This is when I saw the most glorious sight I had seen in a while (see picture below).

    This is jello. Believe me.
    The camera did not capture how enticing it was. Believe me.
