I’ve been absent for a long time, yes, a month and three weeks is a long time away 😔. Do I have an excuse for not posting? I actually do (this life na jeje, I can’t kill myself ğŸ˜Ž).

I’ve been and am still very busy taking care of mummy’s business. It’s not been an easy task, but it’s temporal and necessity is laid on me.

How I’ve survived these few months doing what I don’t love is a miracle.
You might have heard the saying, “do what you love and love what you do” I am doing the exact opposite and I’m still breathing 😂.

When the market is less busy and my head is full of stories…

The good thing is that I’m learning a lot and I’m also very optimistic about the future.

So my schedule has been crazy, I got sucked right back into a routine that I have tried escaping from.
Let me break it down;
5am-7am: wake up, devotion, prepare for the day.
7am-7:30am: keke ride to the market, which I actually enjoy.
7:30am-5:30pm: set up the shop, display goods outside, attend to customers, be vigilant, find time to eat, sneak out to pee, run up and down, try to press my phone which is very unadvisable, pack up and close the shop, join the rest of the market going home and enter a keke. By now, I’m mostly always tired.
6pm-6:30pm: drop at my junction, enter the evening food market which is actually on my route home to buy some groceries and food, then walk home.
6:45pm -7:30pm: do kitchen runs. I go straight to the kitchen once I get back and I’m always in a rush because I want to get done with it quickly and shower.
7:30pm-8:30pm: serve food, shower( the best part of the day, washing off all the market sweat), have dinner and yeild myself to sleep.
PS: When there’s NEPA light, I’m automatically in a more cheerful mood.

Did I mention that the market is not a place for ajebotas, it’s a jungle out there, and like I already mentioned in Market Gist, it brings out the toughness in people. I rarely have time to think clearly or even take down notes when I’m in the market, and I’m mostly tired when I’m home.

Now I’ve decided to stop giving myself the excuse of “I don’t have time” even though I actually don’t have time. I would to the best of my ability continue to put out posts, even if I’m exhausted, even if they are short, even if they are just thoughts, even if my phone gets uncooperative, even if even if I sometimes think that no one is reading.

Happy New Month. May September be a positively mind blowing month for you. As always, I love to hear from you, your feedback means a lot ❤️
