I was just supposed to show you the spot in the coffee forest where we plan to build our modern tiny cottage but then I started sharing with you about my makeup…because… yeah, well, I wear makeup at the farm, lol! Then suddenly it’s time to harvest the corn. Watch the vid!
Hi! I’m Jennie Vee of momtraneur.com and I’m reviving my Youtube channel!!! I’m so excited about this that I’ve actually been spending time taking more videos rather than photos as of late and scheduling them for editing and uploading to my Youtube channel! I’m no techie and I haven’t created a video in a long time so in a way, I’m a newbie when it comes to being a Youtuber. I also just use my old iPhone 6 for now.
I have a HERO 5 GoPro which I will soon use. But I also want to invest in another camera that is more suitable for Vlogging. I just have to save up for it first. In the meantime, I’m enjoying those moments when I’m taking videos and producing content for my channel. I’ll learn to get better at it as time goes by. The most important thing is to just start doing it as it has been on my to-do list since forever. And just like that time when I did my 30-day blog post challenge, I just have to do it by making time for it… now! Continue reading
It’s been raining hard the past couple of days… good for our crops… kinda bad for me. We can’t go back (yet) to the city.
The original plan was for me and Tuz to stay in our tiny city pad with all the conveniences of modern living. I have strong wifi there, Tuz and I can watch movies on the big screen, we can have food delivered or even go out late at night to eat at my favorite food place in the city, there’s a fridge at home, a microwave, a washing machine and of course an air conditioner (although the temperature here at the farm is way cooler). Then that day after Mahal made LBC deliveries for Mushroom Chili Paste and Mushroom Langka Jam orders and came home, he waited for me to wake up. I was actually expecting him to be gone already by the time I wake up so it’d be easier for me to not miss him. But he couldn’t leave yet. He said he was already missing us so much. So we spent time just talking… and hugging… and kissing… an hour passed… two… three… I was on the brink of tears knowing that he needed to go back to the farm soon since the plants have been all alone with no one to take care of them for 5 whole days already at that time.
Then Mahal said: “Sama ka na!” (Come with me!)
I don’t want to make any excuses for not being able to post here when I said I would. But what I will do instead is to tell you the truth.
I’ve been feeling OVERWHELMED… and BURNT OUT as of late… I was aware of this state I was in but I didn’t want to further magnify it by telling people how I just found myself crying out of the blue, how I suddenly just felt so depressed and ungrateful, how I’ve thought of leaving Mahal and Tuz… I didn’t mention anything about it on social media or as it was happening. But now that THAT PHASE is over, now that I think I have overcome those negative thoughts and feelings for the most part, perhaps it would be helpful for others in the same boat to let them know that they’re not alone and that no matter how bad those feelings can get, there is always a way (or ways) to overcome it and come out better than ever.
