40. Change is coming.

Sorry, the grade is slightly blurry, but I'm really proud of the grade I received. I wasn't exactly expecting this. To be honest, I wanted to just pass the course, never mind getting a good grade.

So after almost a month of studying about the atom, the nucleus, ionising radiation, and the proper way of using a survey meter, normalcy has resumed, and I'm back to monitoring the flow of documents and making sure it gets to the right destination.

My desk at work, when there's not a lot of documents and communications to route out. Otherwise, it would be cluttered with papers. I sort the papers according to destination, as to save me a trip, since I route them to five different buildings!

039. My Idea of a Perfect Lifestyle Blog + My Favourite Lifestyle Bloggers + (Plus a few pet peeves)

It's been twelve years since I started blogging, and haven't stopped since.

Writing is a joy, and because of that, I appreciate good writing styles of different writers, different people. I started blogging in 2003, mainly to vent about someone I couldn't have (haha). All that, has changed, however, when I started to really observe people, things, places, events, even food. The days of venting, ranting and raving now belong to the past. Mind, I still express my feelings--be it anger or joy, but as time passes I have taken the "mature and civilised" route.

Years passed, and my blogroll changed. I've recently acquired a liking for lifestyle blogs. Mind, I still check out my friends' blogs, But it is interesting to see what other people do in the other side of the world. Oh, and that includes how to have fun! The best thing about these lifestyle blogs is that the author or the curator knows how to engage their readers.

The only snag--sometimes, the things I see or read seem so unreachable or unattainable. In other words, I can only dream. Note, however, that I don't experience pangs of envy. In fact, I feel as if I've lived vicariously through them!

Here are a few of my favourite lifestyle bloggers:

1. The Londoner- Reading her blog is pretty much like coming over for a cup of coffee or tea, something good to eat, and for a chat! Two of my favourite posts from her blog would be her recipe for red velvet cookies, which I've tried with a few modifications. The other favourite post was her blow dry tutorial, which I've yet to try, as I don't always have plenty of time!\

I like the way Rosie writes her blog--she writes as if she's talking to her readers, which is basically the way it should be. Plus, she replies to the comments when she could--she's a busy lady (which you can see from her blog entries), which makes her all the more adorable!

Rosie's clothes are also awesome, absolute killers. If I had the same figure as her, I'd love to raid her closet!
