You know that feeling when you are SO excited and you can’t contain it and there is too much information that needs to bubble? This is STILL an understatement of how I feel today. There is just so much happening!
Today’s blog is going to be a bit different than my usual one’s, but it is not like my usual blog have a follow through topic, hey? I am going to share with you what is going on in my life and what the next few months are going to look like. Oh my goodness! I am E.X.C.I.T.E.D! So let’s jump in.
Wow, where to start. So, let’s starts with my actual day to day. On Tuesday I will be playing my first piano competition. I am SO nervous! This is not my exam though..that is only at the end of September. After my exciting competition I will be in George from Wednesday to Friday for a work related conference about examination procedures...cricket cricket.. BUT what follows the weekend is going to be EPIC! From Friday to Sunday I will be in Pretoria visiting my “tjommie” and that Saturday we are entering a MALL! Dun dun dun! SARS was so lovely to give me some pocket money. So, in celebration of being a tax payer and earning some back, I will be spoiling myself at Menlyn Shopping Centre. And guess what! If you follow me on Pinterest you will know what I am getting! haha *evil laugh* (Just work with me hear)
This is where it gets exciting. I have been spoiling myself A LOT lately. So I will be recording a video on ALL my shopping I have done recently and it will be a HUGE Winter Haul (well, for me it is huge). That video will be live on the 23rd of August...this year!
But that is not it, yet. In September (heaven help me, I don’t know what I have challenged myself with) I will be uploading videos every.single.day! Let this hang there for a few seconds and absorb it.
Yes, I have challenged myself to a Yoga/Pilates month and I decided I am going to keep a vlog of it on my YouTube channel. So please, please come and join me and support me in this mission. I decided to do this because I want to see how that changes my running and what difference it really makes. It will be short videos and I will be documenting everything. You will find out ALL of my measurements, my weight and I will even keep a food diary. And to proof that I am actually doing Pilates/Yoga I will record some bits.
It does not stop here! I stumbled upon the Booktuber (I did not even know this existed) community on YouTube and I fell in love! I am an avid reader and when I started watching this videos, let me just say that I am in it. Hook, line and sinker! So, I don’t know yet how I am going to incorporate this into my month seeing that most months only have 4 Saturday’s (they should definitely look into that), but you will be seeing more of my love for reading and love for books on my channel. Eeeeeek, I think this excites me the most.
Nooooooooooooooo, I am lying!
I am sure not everybody knows this, but November is the Diabetes Awareness Month. World Diabetes Day is on the 14th of November. I have never embraced my Diabetes as I am currently doing it. I joined a group on Facebook called MadeULook:
MadeULook for a cure (https://www.facebook.com/groups/madeulookforacure/)
This page is run by Alexys Cheyenne Fleming and I am inspired! She is a self-taught make-up artist and a Type 1 Diabetic since the age of 13 if my memory is not failing. You can check out her blog here: http://madeulookbylex.blogspot.com/. For the first time in a VERY long time I don’t feel so alone and I am love interacting with the peeps on the Facebook page.
I have decided to do another series of videos for Diabetes awareness in November..uploading every.single.day. I go back again to “heaven help me I don’t know what I have challenged myself with”. BUT this makes me spark, ignite, call it what you what. I cannot wait.
I am going to do the series up until my birthday which is the 21st, because after that I will be partying until the end of November hahaha. My parents agreed to help me with this series AND I am getting a tattoo for Diabetes (I am just working on the design still). I am REALLY excited because I hope through this I can create awareness and reach out to the peeps here in SA and share my story. I also contacted Casual Day and asked if it is possible for me to become and ambassador. I am awaiting their feedback and will update on that as soon as it happens.
I haven’t mentioned October really because I am keeping that as a “rest” month. BUT, MY SISSY IS COMING TO VISIT ME!
And it is AARDKLOP! Oh yah, so of course I will be vlogging for that! Hmm, I like festivals! And it will be my 28th Diaversary (for those who don’t know this is my Diabetic Anniversary). I got the word and idea from the peeps of the page I told you about and I think it is a great idea to celebrate the years that I have had this super power. Yeah, I am Diabetic, what is YOUR super power?
I think I have covered all the exciting stuff happening to me and around me. I hope you are just excited as I am and that some have rubbed off on you!
I would like to hear from you what you think. Please leave a comment below.
Thanks for reading!
Speak to you soon...or sooner!
