Fine, You Win 2019…But Fret Not Because I Will Be Back To Spam You In 2020

Heyyyyyy…so, uhmm I’m back? Well not really. I figured I should let you know what’s what regarding my blog. In case you missed my previous blog, the short story is that I have two options regarding my update schedule for the rest of the year.

  • Option 1: I will go offline and return on the 1st of January 2020. From that point and onwards, I will stick to my update schedule and share a shit ton of content. Which includes: blog series, collabs, a new first draft, new projects, new products and so much more. I just want to really quickly add here that I will probably have one or two blogs go up between now and the 1st of January. I’m not sure if that changes anything for you.
  • Option 2: Have some blogs go up but they will in no way, shape or form, be consistent. I will attempt to have a blog go up every two weeks or so but I wouldn’t hold my breath. I also can’t say now how long it would take me to build up enough content to switch back to my usual update schedule.

And yes, I did copy and paste those two bullet points from my previous blog. Your girl is incredibly lazy. I’m not going to stretch this one out, I’ve decided that option 1 would be the best move going forward. Before I continue, I just want to say that I’m going to work really, really, REALLY hard moving forward to avoid something like this happening again. Yeah, life is incredibly unpredictable but it’s not like I’m going to get ”less busy” moving forward. Damn, how did I manage to use ”moving forward” in every sentence? That my friend is talent. Anyway, I need to put in the work, get ahead and stay ahead. So, I’m going to hunker down, work my little butt off and practically spam you with content for the foreseeable future…starting January 2020.

Before I go, two things.

1) The second part of my collab with Jess from The Good In Every Day is now live on her website. Here is a little hint of my interview with her.

So many women are opening up about their health and starting important discussions regarding women’s health. How does it feel to be a part of this community that talks about these topics?

It feels good. I personally feel that it’s so important to talk about serious subjects because not only does it help you heal, it’s also making an impact in society. By telling it as it is, we’re ripping away the myths and educating others.

2) Here is an update on the realistic bird I mentioned in my previous blog. Trying to make the feathers look realistic has been truly nightmare-inducing. But hey, at least I’ve made some progress? I think it would be cool to show you the finished product in January, perfected of course. *laughs hysterically*

Until next time!

PS I will probably have one or two blogs go up in between now and January. Maybe another Christmas story?

I’m A Horrible Blogger…Help Me Change That

Hi? Uhmm. well, we’re here again. Another awkward hello after disappearing for almost two weeks.  I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Would you, my readers, prefer for me to 1) take a longer break and only return when I have enough content already written for a good month or 2) upload blogs as I can. I would love to know your thoughts on this.

I’m sorry for not being so consistent with my uploading. Life truly has been kicking me in the gut left and right. Some I will definitely share on here once I’m ready to talk about it. It’s a lot. I’m having an incredibly hard time working on the content I want to put out. In theory, I could try to write some type of blog for at least once a week but to be honest with you, I want to write content I’m proud of. The last thing I want to do is have a blog go up simply to have a blog go up. Quality over quantity every single time baby.

Other than that, here is a picture of a bird I’ve been working on. Ever since I’ve gotten my iPad, I’ve been playing around with digital art. This is my first attempt at realism. I will hopefully share the finished product next week when I let you know about whatever option we’re going to go for. I’m leaning towards option 1, but I will take your wishes into account. IMG_0252.jpg

Here is a more detailed explanation of the two options:

  • Option 1: I will go offline and return on the 1st of January 2020. From that point and onwards, I will stick to my update schedule and share a shit ton of content.

I also can’t say now how long it would take me to build up enough content to switch back to my usual update schedule.

Hi.

*insert awkward wave* Hi. How are you? *insert nervous laugther*

So, uhm…hello? Welcome back? I no longer know how to start these things. Prepare yourself for a medicore at best type of blog? I don’t know anymore. So much has changed these last few months like holy shit where do I even start? I probably should’ve given this blog some thought because now I’m just lost. Do I unload everything and catch you up or do I space it out? Do I play catch up? I guess for now a good start would be to tell you where the hell I’ve been this last month. Yes, let’s go with that. I popped on down to South Africa to spend some time with my dad? I don’t know why I phrased it as a question. I was in South Africa for three weeks, a shit load of stuff happened and now I’m back in the Netherlands. Fuck, seriously. How do I write blogs? This feels so strange. I don’t really know what to say. There is so much I want to share but I also honestly haven’t processed half of the things yet so I’m twindeling my fingers here.

You know what? I’m just going to keep this short. I’m sorry I disseapered without so much as a peep for a month. I’m back now and I have so much to tell you. Okay, I’m kind of back. I won’t be back for real until October mainly because your girl needs some time to fall into her routine again. Especially now that I work almost everyday and I have to play catch up with things around the house after being gone for three weeks. But, and there is a but coming…from October and onwards, expect a shit load of content. I’m talking about collabs, the sims 4 remaking meals challenge, reviews, a new project I’m working on, a new product, a new service, a new story (first draft), a new eBook (hopefully June 2020) and so much more. These upcoming few months is going to be busy but boy I can’t wait. I have that spark back. I just needed a moment to catch my breath and collect my thoughts.

I’m not going to stretch this out for much longer. The awkwardness of this blog is almost painful. I just want to say a big thank you for all the love and support I’ve recieved on my blog while I was gone. I can’t tell you how motivated and excited it makes me for the future.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Until next time!

Much love,

Cassy

BLOG NOTICE!!!

Hey everyone,

I’m going to keep this short. I will be back with my normal update schedule in September. For now, please excuse my absence. I want to use these next upcoming weeks to adjust to this new lifestyle change and work ahead so I can post content uninterrupted come September. I apologize for this. I really hate doing this but sometimes life just gets in the way. Please look forward to what I’m cooking up though. They require a bit of time but boy are they super exciting. I will see you in two weeks on the 2nd of September.

Love,

Blog Schedule Notice! | Mini Life Update

THIS IS NOT A BLOG!

Hey everyone,

So, uhm where do I start? Life has been pure chaos lately. I haven’t had a moment to catch my breath and I’m on the edge of a full-blown mental break down. I don’t even know where to start or how much I want to share in this blog that isn’t really a blog. It’s more like a notice. I’m just going to jump straight to the nitty bitty business because I don’t have it in me to stretch it out.

I’ve had health problems this last two weeks. I’ve been so sick and I’m just not getting better. I’m seeing the doctor tomorrow. It comes and goes. I have a few moments where I feel like myself and I’m able to get some work done but I’ve had to prioritize what I choose to focus on in the rare moments I feel better. I’ve been working on something super big since February and I’m so close to being done. I need to finish it soon. For my own sanity really. I’ve written some blogs but they’re just not turning out well. They’re trash and I refuse to post shitty blogs just for the sake to have a blog go online. I pride myself in creating quality blogs and I refuse to give that up. I don’t want to miss blogs but I know you all will understand. I will make it up to you all once I’m finally healthy.

The other big factor is my father’s health. I’m not sure if I should share this as it’s not my story to tell but as my father has gone public with it, I can comfortably briefly mention it. My father is undergoing enormous surgery today. He is losing his one foot. Just between his ankle and knee. It’s big news. I’m a pure nervous wreck and my stomach hurts at the thought of my dad being on the other side of the world. I can’t do anything and it hurts. I want to be there for him. I want to help take care of him after the surgery. I want to be his support but I can’t.

I don’t have the energy to really talk about all of this. I’m emotionally, mentally and physically drained. I need a break from bad things happening in my life. Truly. But anyway…let’s talk about the upcoming activity on my website/blog.

My health and the quality of blogs I choose to share is important to me. Until I’ve recovered and I’m able to create content I’m proud of, there won’t be that many blogs going live on my website. I will try my best to line everything out so you know when to expect a blog. I’m only going to stray from my usual update schedule for a maximum of two weeks. The last two parts of my infertility journey will be going up the next two Wednesdays. I have another blog going up on Friday. I’ve been working on it for a month and I just need to wait until Wednesday to collect the last bit of data. A review is supposed to go up next week Monday but as I’ve been so sick for such a long period of time, I haven’t had the time to review anything. Originally I planned to review a restaurant but my taste buds have been pretty shitty lately so I couldn’t review it fairly. I also couldn’t stomach the thought of the food so we decided not to go. That’s about it. Basically, three blogs will go up in the next two weeks.

To specify:

  • 15 May – Infertility blog part 4
  • 17 May – new blog
  • 22 May – Infertility blog part 5

My update schedule should be back to normal by the 27th of May. It can be sooner but I doubt it will be much later. I’m so sorry. I really wanted to push through and follow my plan for my blog to the T but life doesn’t always allow everything to go according to plan…I hope you will understand.

Thank you so much for reading and I will see you in a click!

PS Please refrain from commenting about a possible pregnancy. I’m not pregnant. I just have a nasty stomach bug. It hurts that every time I publically share I’m unwell and nauseous, the first response I get is the are you pregnant bit. It stings because I fucking wish with every fiber of my being that this is true. I just had to put this out there because 1) how will you know it’s insensitive to comment this to someone struggling with infertility without someone just straight out telling you and 2) I don’t have it in me to read those comment. I just can’t handle it right now.
