Spontaneous Staycation

You: Where have you BEEN? Your blog’s been empty for over a week, no note, no posts!

Me: I know, I kind of disappeared—

You: You could’ve DIED, and I wouldn’t have known! 

Me: Or I could’ve gone on vacation, but hey, tomato, tomahto, right?

You: I don’t remember you saying you had vacation plans.

Me: It was kind of spontaneous, actually. I’ve been working so much that life’s just been moving around me. I needed a break. And sleep.

You: Did you go anywhere?

Me: Yes and no. I stayed in NYC—it was a staycation—but I met up with old friends, and I also met someone from WordPress for the first time!

You: What! Who?

Me: The awesome and talented Melinda Kuscera. We became friends through WordPress over the past year and recently realized that we both lived near each other. So we set a time to meet at Grand Central Station and spent an entire afternoon talking. We didn’t even notice the time pass.

YouDid you do anything else on your staycation?

Me: I did. I revisited some old favorites, and I crossed something off my bucket list: I finally rode the ferry to Staten Island! The skies were blue, the wind was in my hair, and I’ve got some gorgeous photos I’m putting together for a Hanging Out With Life post later this week. 

You: It sounds like a week well-spent.

Me: It really was. I know I went MIA here, but I was still active on my Twitter and Instagram. My muse has been annoyed with me though, taking a week off from writing and all. 

You: Does that mean you and your muse will be catching up on a lot of writing this week?

Me: A lot…and then some!

  1. Oh wow!! Jade, I’m so happy you and Melinda finally met. Pictures please!! ❤ If only we all could meet, right? Sigh. AND although we are missing you more often here in blogosphere (I just got back myself), it’s a delight to know you’re having fun. Looking forward to your comeback and that Hanging Out With Life post! Kisses!

    1. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of my and Melinda’s meeting. We were both so excited to meet each other that we just sat and chatted and time got away with us. I forgot to take photos! But the next time I meet her, I will definitely remember ^_^ My photos are of my Staten Island day. Hope you enjoy them!

      I hope one day I can meet you too dear Maria! If you are ever in NYC, you absolutely have to let me know, and if I am ever in the Philippines, I’ll be sure to do the same ❤

    1. I know exactly what you mean! I never thought, when I started blogging on WordPress, that I would ever meet any of the wonderful bloggers in this community, so it was such a great surprise to actually meet Melinda in person. I also agree: she’s a great blogger ^_^

      P.S. It’s great to be back! I’m looking forward to catching up on all your writing 😀
