Hello Stranger

Hi. It's been a while. This time a lot longer than ever before. 4 months, to be exact. Why didn't I give any notice? To be honest, I didn't think I'd be gone this long.

Well, it wasn't as if I had fallen off the face of the earth. For those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram (@smellyocheese), you'd more or less know what I've been up to.

This isn't exactly a comeback post nor am I saying goodbye. I know I want to continue blogging and  I apologize on the disappearing act but I really can't say when I'll truly be back.

After the longest time I decided to open my blog today and that was when I came across one of my "About Me" posts. Many things have changed and yet some remained the same.

Here are 15 facts about me now to keep you up to speed...

1 -- Meet M (Yes, the letter "M"). She lives with me and is lovable in so many ways. I have a feeling that she likes me too.

2 -- I gave up on all my other pets so M gets all the attention.

3 -- We live together in an apartment. Finally, I can come back to a home and not a mere room.
4 -- I've decided to not live in clutter anymore.
5 -- I'm starting to discover new realms of shopping from furnishing my apartment.
6 -- For the first time, I painted walls from start to finish all by myself. 

7 -- I've acquired a new financial commitment.
8 -- Thank goodness for the new job that helps to pay for it.
9 -- While I'm no longer clueless of my current position, I'm not still not sure which direction I want to head towards.

10 -- But if there's one thing I'm sure about, is making things right again with my family. I have been distant for far too long.

11 -- Back in June, I joined my first run and finished the 10km category within 75 minutes after 4 months of training.

12 -- By adopting healthier eating habits and exercising, I've lost 15kg in 6 months. I'm no longer trying to lose more weight.
13 -- Unfortunately, losing my cheeks made me look "sickly" so I'm now trying to figure out how to counter that. Suggestions?
14 -- I haven't fallen out of love with makeup and cosmetics but I've been using mainly staples.

15 -- I'm in love.
