It has been a long time since I just came here to have a little chat with you. How have you been, I’ve missed you!
Lately the blog focus was just The Poetry Bar and I kind of went silent. It’s because I actually fell into a routine which suffocates my creativity and my inspiration. As soon as my days start to all look the same, I immediately lose my writing motivation because I just go through the motions, my emotions get a bit shut down and I just live and the life I lead suppresses my inner writer.
I am back to working from home full time, the corona situation is causing issues in Croatia again so my life is just like wake up, work, eat, take a walk to get out of the apartment, maybe some exercise, maybe see my boyfriend, netflix or a book and sleep. It’s getting exhausting.
There’s only one thing that has changed recently in my life. I decided to learn how to cook. That’s right people – 24 years old and don’t know how to cook. Who wants to marry me?
Cooking is the one skill I did not acquire through my years of living away from home. I moved out when I went to university which was years ago and I never showed any interest in cooking. Something sparked my interest now and I have been reading recipes and getting busy in the kitchen. I realized that (apart from the dish washing) cooking really helps me relax. Just after making a few basic recipes I already started experimenting, I understand some things about cooking better. Yesterday I even made dessert. It’s a type of food often eaten in Croatia during the Advent time and since we do not have Advent this year because of the restrictions I made it on my own. The dish is called fritule and it was my first time making them. If anyone from Croatia is reading this and rolling their eyes because I am proud of myself for cooking something so simple – let me be, I used to burn water.
So, that’s pretty much it for me today. I decided that I am going to force myself to find ways to step out of this routine, get back my creativity and post more often. It won’t be poetry immediately, but I can always come rambling about something else here or even share my new-found cooking skills with you all.
Do let me know in the comments down below how are you, do you want to share something you have been doing or what has been happening. I love reading your comments!
Sending love and positive vibes,
