Trying to at least make things feel as normal as possible, living outside of the typical 9-5 lifestyle can be rather… depressing. Like its very own form of culture shock, if that makes sense. Post-pandemic my creative outlets consisted primarily of journaling and the little blog posts here and there whenever I did dare to share, but it never quite felt like enough, or pleasing in ways after a while. Then one day everything changed, I wish I could tell you what exactly, but I’m still trying to figure that out myself. It was all like a cumulative change that I underwent overnight. Woke up fed up with my current life and I guess in desperacy to feel something I started finding various coping mechanisms, good habits; this time around. Anyways, long story short I’ve neglected my writing in lieu of other passions and projects I’ve started along the way but I’m sitting here finally, writing once more and it all feels rather natural. I’m feeling refreshed, somewhat. Here we go.
In the meantime, feel free to check out my latest project, VIno Fino, a podcast mirroring this blog but way more in depth and covering a larger range of topics than just work inspired by my melancholic heart, LOL. Now streaming on Spotify & Apple Podcasts. https://linktr.ee/xavieralexis
