Since last night, I have been feeling dizzy and slightly nauseous. A few minutes of staring at the screen would make it seem like my world was turning and the dizziness didn’t go away when I woke up this morning so I just called in sick at work. I figured that it might not be that bad but staring at the screen for too long might worsen it.

I don’t even know if my employer still believes me when I tell him I’m sick or not feeling well because I’ve been “sick” too many times already since I started working for him. But he always emphasizes how health is important and that writing a lot every day can cause burnout. Anyway, why am I even defending myself too much? Lol. Since I’m not working today, I opted to just update my blog since I know I would have less time to write when Shane finally gets here, which is in ONE DAY, guys, I cannot.

(Wait, I shouldn’t even be using my laptop, but… Oh well.)

A lot has happened the past few days so I guess it’s timely to do another Life Lately volume.

This is not in my draft list but let me go ahead and do this.

I realized that no matter what the font I use for my header, I always end up wanting something else. It just seems like no font speaks enough of me, I guess I could buy a digital pad or something to create my own fonts, but that’s a different story and I’m not yet that willing to invest in something so expensive (or not. I haven’t really done any research on that) and besides, granted that I have something like that, I wouldn’t know how to use it anyway. LOL.

As a temporary fix, I decided to download a bunch of free fonts online. I saw some nice fonts but I will still have to see how it turns out with “The Bae Blogs” typed in. Sometimes, no matter how nice the font is, it doesn’t match the text, you know? And for a perfectionist like me, finding the right font is tiring more than fun, trust me, I’ve been there a million times already.

I couldn’t remember how I installed my first batch of downloaded fonts before but I remember blogging about it in Tumblr (see, that’s why blogging is a useful craft and not just a saturated trend in the market!) but for the benefit of those who no longer want to open a new tab, let me just paste an excerpt here:
