Life Update: Dyeing My Hair, Hamster Adoption and so on.. (Hi! Hello!)

Hi, guys! How are you?

This post will not be the usual post, I wrote this to give an update about my life and what’s keeping me busy the past few weeks. I also want this to become like a little chat with you guys.

Okay! Let me begin..

I started journaling a few weeks ago, hellocitygirl’s post inspired me to do it. I’ve been struggling with my mental health especially now we’re still in quarantine and work is also stressing me out, that’s also why.

So far, I find it helpful. Writing helps me translate my feelings into words— a way that I can understand it better; I read somewhere that it’s healthy to do that so your brain knows what you feel and they can lay those thoughts on where they should be, then it’ll be easier to deal with them. I hope this will continue and I won’t get lazy writing lol.

Next update, I dyed my hair blue green!

I dyed my hair before from brown to red to pink to lavender. This time I choose colour blue green!

Which turned out great! IMO haha! This is also a DIY which I do not recommend, but you know the situation right now.

This is what my hair looks like now. I know it looks super dry, my hair is like that ever since, but don’t worry, I’ve been taking extra care of my hair now whenever I dye it.

Tip: Wash your hair 2-3 times a week so that your hair will have enough time to produce its own natural oils. I apply conditioner on my hair more often that shampoo, as shampoo has properties which is not good to your hair if it’s dyed hair.

Next update, if you guys have been following my site, I wrote a blog about online learning. I also shared there that I’m taking several online courses. Well, I just got my digital certificate and I’m just so happy that I wanted to share it here with you.

This isn’t my first time to receive a digital certificate from an online course but I’m extra proud of this one because it took me 4 weeks to complete the course as I’m also working from home. The course itself wasn’t that complicated in my opinion, but balancing everything made it tough.

I am in front of my computer screen 8 hrs a day because of work so it wasn’t easy for me to study after using a screen again, but my interest on the course itself kept me motivated to continue and finish the course. I’m so proud of me.

Last update..

Few weeks ago, my sister told me that her former coworker is putting her hamster in adoption as she can no longer take care of it because she has too many hamsters already.

My sister knows that I’ve always wanted to have either a hamster or a guinea pig. They’re just too damn adorable for me. I told her I’m very much interested and willing to take care of her coworker’s hamster. Which she told her coworker and agreed that I’ll get her hamster.

I prepared and did a research on how to take care of hamster. I bought a big storage box type cage, food and carvings. I also ordered some toys because I learned that they like to play and really active in general.

I was feeling so excited and nervous because I didn’t know if I will be a good owner to her and I have no experience on taking care of hamsters.

Then she arrived.

Lo-and-behold.. Meet Melon!

bad quality because she keeps on moving! haha!

She is the cutest thing ever. I can’t even express how happy I am to have her. She’s so active, she likes to play and eat, I also found out that hamsters are nocturnal, I get to watch her while she’s sleeping during the day (sounds creepy).

The way she just stuff her mouth with food that is given to her is so adorable. I feel so delighted. Do you have any experience on taking care of hamster? If you do, your advice is very much appreciated.

I know I’ve been posting less than I did before, im taking enough needed time to get myself on track and take care of my mental health. I want every blog I post here to come from my inspirations; I don’t want to force myself to write for the sake of content or to make a presence as that’s not the reason I started this blog.

I hope that you guys enjoyed reading this and Im very much interested to hear any updates from your life. How are you? What’s keeping you busy these past few weeks? How are you feeling right not? I want to know! Feel free to write it on comment section.

‘Til next post. Love lots. 🙂

  1. Great post! I looove the colour of your hair, it’s so pretty!! 😍 Also, your hamster is absolutely adorable! Journaling is a habit that I should start to implement too, I’m sure I would really benefit from putting my thoughts out there and gain more clarity from it… I just need to find when I would do it so I could really stick with it!

    1. Thank you!! My hair turned out better than I expected. And I agree with you about journaling, I had a hard time sticking with it at first but after weeks I finally got used to it and now part of my routine.✌
