Since I've been gone...



Hi people,
Sorry I’ve been away for a very long time... 2 months to be exact. This is not a real post, more like me on the road trying to distract myself from all the work I should be doing. Quite a lot has happened in the time I’ve been away; I wish I could tell you all of it...

The passing...
My last post was on 25th July. I was quite happy while writing that post, unfortunately, that day also brought tears. I was on the way home from work when a text announced my sister’s passing.
I was broken, angry, speechless and completely torn apart. The days and weeks after were tough... confusion and pain were two of the emotions I felt. Those who know me say I have still not hit the breaking point and that I am still in denial. I really don’t know, all I’m sure of is that I miss her and a lot of things have changed.

The move...
In my last post, I mentioned being in a happy place and balling... well, that’s because I got another job! It’s a more tasking role in a different industry; the opportunities are mind blowing although there’s a lot of long hours and brain storming sessions.

The new reality...
I’m trying to settle into the new work schedule, although it’s not been easy, the rewards of the time and energy dedicated are motivating. I’m happy about the turn my career has taken, I love my life.

Special thanks to everyone who has come knocking on my online cribs, God bless you real good... and Toinlicious and everyone who’s asking, I am in Asia!!!
