Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too.

Who would have thought LA was so cold in March…

Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too.
After crossing an entire ocean, and a continent… we finally arrived in beautiful, sunny Los Angeles. Where it was freakishly cold. Or were we too sleep-deprived to feel any warmth, I don’t know.

What I do know is that :
– There were no Uber answering from LAX, thanks to their slow wifi.
– I had forgotten to refill my T-Mobile account so I couldn’t use data to move away from the airport and eventually get an Uber to drive us home.
– That we didn’t have any change for at least taking a bus away from LAX, because we hadn’t thought this through…
– We did finally find an ATM and someone who accepted to change a 10$ bill.
– Somehow we managed to miss our bus, so we had to wait almost an hour for the next one…
– Finally, after 15hours or more of crazy travel, we were home-ish… except the apartment I used to stay at, was now the house next door. We didn’t even have the right address, oh well.

After those insanities, we decided sleep would be our best ally – the next morning was a total breakfast binge at Denny’s ! Welcome to America !

I’m in LA b*tch !

We’ve lost it…

I have to warn you that this video is out of control. There are bloopers from our one-month vacation to Los Angeles… and other shenanigans. I guess insane is the new normal – says me.

If you enjoy binging stupid self-made videos I invite you to go
to my YouTube channel.

If you’d rather catch my more aesthetic work, head
to my Vimeo profile !

PS – I’m probably gonna stop using Vimeo since you can’t upload a video unless you pay for it. I’m a struggling wannabe artist, so this ain’t gonna do it. But you can still see my oldies there.

Things you don’t know about me

Winter edition

1 – I used to hate winter because of how cold it gets that season, and the snow that transforms in mud and gets you dirty… but now I find snow cute, and I like when it’s chilly outside as long as I’m wearing warm clothes. The Christmas Spirit is in me !

2 – I will drink so much hot cocoa and tea in winter, it’s actually scary.

3 – As I’m getting older, Christmas has become so important to me. I really need to celebrate it & like it should be. I have become a Xmazilla… total control freak over the decorations, and the comfort food, and music ! We’re having crazier than usual christmases now.

4 – I have the bad habit of buying myself a new pair of UGG boots every coming winter.

5 – I love staying cosy at home, it’s nice because I take extra time off to myself so I can read books… okay, and play video games. That’s the geek in me that speaks.

ATTACKED BY A FOX ?!!

We almost died !

When my sister and I decided to go for a nice walk and venture into our grandma’s field, we never expected so many crazy adventures to happen to us… the most frightening one ? We came face to face with a wild looking animal, but was it actually a fox ?!

CAUSING TROUBLE (at the Science Museum)

That was intense

Last summer my sister and I were in Serbia, and the temperatures were so high we didn’t know what to do with ourselves; then I thought about the Science Museum and their AC, also that they have fun things and experiments, which decided us to go.

I WAS OUTTA CONTROL (at Disneyland Park)

This was a bad idea !

There it is, the last part of my Disneyland Paris vlog… it took me a while to edit, it’s basically a 25 minutes movie of my life that day. I had the best time ! My sister survived me, I was so hyper, and we got lost at some point… but fun 🙂

it’s 11pm and i’m in bed eating tortilla chips.

Tomorrow night I will be in Paris… tonight ? I’m at my best friend’s in Zürich. I came here a couple of days ago to spend some time with her. She’s an incredible human being, one of the most amazing that I am lucky enough to know and basically, count as family. We’re like sisters when together; I love her so much.

I was busy the week before leaving Serbia for Switzerland, so I had no time to schedule any posts for The Blog the way I usually do. Which of course, I felt bad about & started to blame myself because I promised I wouldn’t do that anymore… or that if it really had to happen, I would at least take some time off so I could give you a heads up, that I will be “ghosting” for some days.

Last time I wrote that, I definitively did not realize what it actually meant in real life. Now that it’s happening, I figured it was a mistake to promise such thing, because it’s totally impossible to keep. I mean, when I say I’m busy it also means I’m exhausted to a point I can’t handle anything at all. I barely make it to bed and fall asleep right away… so managing more than that is just not realistic.

I know there’s people who can deal with much more intense things in their lives, and still keep doing what they’ve put their responsibilities into : I’m not like that. I wish I were, but as hard as I try, my body and mind won’t every time, keep up with me & everything that I want. Sometimes, I learn that it’s all right to recognize my limits, for my own good.

That’s why I am not gonna stress myself over missing out on my blogging duties for a week. I am only gonna clarify and change what I wrote that last time when I was being reckless with a promise. My goal is to post an article a day on weekdays. I try to schedule them a week in advance so it allows me to skip blogging a day or two the next week, if I have to — because I’m traveling and unable to focus on The Blog during that time (for example).

Which is great, since that way it stays updated and nobody is missing anything. When I can’t do that, I try to post “live” the day there’s no scheduled posts, but that requires me to have an hour or two break from my crazy life, which is not always possible. When all my efforts to be proper with blogging fail, I try to publish the five posts I usually make, even if it steps up on my weekend.

Problem with that is my weekends are packed & needed for personal intentions, and it kills me to work then if I feel like I gotta. Basically what I’m trying to say is I’m really doing my best to keep my word, and be a good blogger & I think in all fairness I am not that bad, because I’ve created this blog in 2010 and it’s still up and running.

Thank you for your patience & occasionally baring with my irregular schedule. Now you know that if there’s no update it’s because I couldn’t make it, but that I tried to. Big kisses, xoxox ! Madison.
