Hi there readers. You may have noticed the spiderwebs and dust gathering on Black-Luck lately. It is true, I have been MIA for a while now. I am one bad blogger! The truth is that my life has taken a hectic turn lately. Let me explain..
The main event in my life lately has been me graduating. I now finally have my masters degree in my pocket after six years of blood, sweat, tears and happiness. Having this degree is great and it is a major task that I can now cross off from my to-do list.
This means that I now have the daunting task of finding a job. It also means that I have to leave my dorm, where I’ve lived for four years, and move back in with my parents. I can’t even grasp how much and how quickly my life is changing.
I have also noticed a shift in my interests. Over the past few months I have really gotten into cooking and baking. I have been obsessed with cookbooks, cooking videos on YouTube and foodblogs like Oh She Glows and My New Roots. I am even seriously considering enrolling in cooking school to become a full blown chef. The problem with that is that you have to work with animal ingredients to be able to get a chef’s degree in Belgium. There is no alternative. Sucks right?
Another one of my interests that has exponentially grown over the past few months has been books. Japanese literature to be specific. I have loved the books by Haruki Murakami so much that I made a plan to read all of them and to delve into other Japanese authors as well.
Everything in my life is spinning right now, flying, looking for a place to land and settle down. This is seriously exciting but has left my mind a little preoccupied. My interest in beauty has declined and made way for some of my other hobbies to grow. The question is: what do I do with Black-Luck?
Because I have been limiting myself to writing only about cosmetics, I’ve created some serious dry spells on Black-Luck where I wanted to write an article but just wasn’t into beauty at the time. Not good! I feel like I need to stop limiting myself and just write about what I am doing or loving at that moment, whether that be a cookbook, a graphic novel or a lipstick. What do you think?
