My Random Thoughts #5

First article of the new year. I have to say, it feels good to be writing again.

They are just thoughts, don’t take them personally.

There is so much to discuss; where do I begin?

My holiday was great.

2018 turned out to be a great year for me and ended with me spending time at the coast of Kenya. Despite the extreme heat and humidity, I had a good time. What was more fun was exploring Mombasa County and seeing their cultures; it was almost as if I was in another country.

Here’s a fun fact, I spent a whole week there without using sun screen and my skin is still okay; no sunburns. Would I wish to go back there? Absolutely. Mombasa is a fun place to be in.

2019 vibes

Ever since the new year begun, I have been sensing some weird vibes about 2019. Now, I don’t know why I’m feeling these vibes but what I can tell you is that it is something I haven’t sensed before. Perhaps these are new vibes for prosperity? Again, I do not know. It’s weird; that’s all I can say for now. P.S. I haven’t slept well this year so far. This needs to improve with immediate effect.

I hate gaming right now

Here’s the thing, I’m a gamer. I love playing the latest titles ranging from action to pure simulations. Gaming has been my cup of tea since the PS2 era but I’m getting bored of it now.

Just the other day, I uninstalled all the games I had on my PC. Why did I do that? It just felt right. What I have realized about 2019 is that it will be twice as busy as 2018 so gaming time would be more detrimental than beneficial to me. Then again, I can’t be focused on my work 24/7; a good distraction is needed. This time, however, it isn’t gaming.

Cappuccino is my favorite coffee right now

Yup. Nothing more to add on that. Just letting y’all know.

Goals for 2019

Just like 2018, I have goals to be achieved this year.  And just like 2018, I would love to accomplish them all. To be honest, I never knew goal-setting was this fun and challenging at the same time. It is one thing to set a goal but it is a whole different story trying to achieve it.

Are my 2019 goals crazier than those of 2018? Yes, they are. I’m a little scared. Will I pull it off? I sure hope so.

Plans for the blog

Oh, wow. I have been looking at the writing schedule for my blog and it is intense. Back in 2017, I only used to write when I felt like it but nowadays I write whenever I get the chance. Again, so much has changed over the course of two years and I’m making good progress. 2019 is like the year where I get things right with my blog so buckle up kids, it’s going to be a long journey ahead.

My reading habits

This is definitely my top priority for the year. In as much as I am writing as much content as I possibly can, it is also important for me to be digesting new content. Thankfully, I have a boatload of books to read. Most will be completed this month alone but my emphasis will be on blogs.

Rarely do I speak about other blogs here but what many people don’t know is that I love reading other people’s content. I even go further and encourage them to write more. There are many forms of article writing out there which makes my desire to read them grow stronger. So, do you know any good blogs out there? I would love to read them. My favorite so far is Thrive Global.
