Mid-Year Review of the New Year’s Resolution in 2023

Mid-Year Review of the New Year’s Resolution in 2023

It's June. If you're new to my blog, I usually write something personal during mid-year when I take a chance to look back at the new year's resolution that I wrote at the beginning of the year and see how far I am from my goal for this year.

This year has been bittersweet for me. On the one hand, I have some good news about checking some of the things on my bucket list. On the other hand, I strongly feel like I'm in a middle-life crisis. So much so that I start wondering if the middle of every decade will be like this.

I'm 34 going on 35 now. And the stress that I've had lately reminds me back when I was 25. The feeling that I'm not sure where I'm going, looking at my peers feeling like I'm a failure. And since it's the oldest that I've ever been so far, I feel like I've never felt more stressed in my entire life. So in this post, I'm going to share some of the things I've achieved and failed in 2023. Here we go!

2022 Review & 2023 Resolutions – Living, Loving, Laughing Through The Year

2022 Review & 2023 Resolutions – Living, Loving, Laughing Through The Year

It's that time of the year, and it's been a while since the last time I wrote a raw blog post just to share my thoughts and show some snippets of my personal life in my year-end review and New Year's Resolutions. This time of the year last year, I was in the middle of my trip to Turkey and Serbia so I didn't get a chance to recapitulate my 2021, that's why I'll make up for it now!

If I have to be honest, I've been struggling to manage my time these days that I didn't even get a chance to work on my blog for so many reasons. That's why now that I have some time to sit down and write, I want to take time to forget about optimizing my blog posts and do something that became the reason why I started this blog in the first place: pour out my thoughts and emotions to lighten the burden. LOL.

2022 has been a year full of lessons learned, and I'm looking forward to 2023 because I have so many plans in store that I'm slightly afraid I won't accomplish any of them. But if there's anything I've learned this year, it costs nothing to stay positive, so that's what I'm trying to do!

3 Things I've Learned Before My Upcoming 33rd Birthday

3 Things I’ve Learned Before My Upcoming 33rd Birthday

It was fun and games until suddenly, I realized that my 33rd birthday is in a week. I had a video call with my mom today and she kept reminding me of that. That, and the reminder to buy her some stuff from Turkey.

I've been traveling in the past few months. As much as I want to update my blog with my traveling stories, it's hard to do it these days since I'm still traveling with my little ol' netbook and my friend in Serbia changed the OS to Linux. I can't seem to get the hang of it, nor do I have the patience to sort out my traveling photos as quickly as I always did on Windows. 

So I figure I will resume my traveling stories as soon as I get back to Indonesia on the laptop I've got at home, and this time I'm going to touch on some topic on my personal matters: my age and the lessons I've learned that remind me of my maturity during my trip this time.

4 Ways to Choose the Best Domain Name for Your Website

So you decide to build a website. Whether it's for your business or just for personal use through blogging, choosing the best domain name for your website can be quite tricky.

If you asked me why I ended up choosing The BeauTraveler as my brand as well as my domain name, I actually can't remember why.

I knew since the beginning that I wanted to have a blog covering some of the topics, including travel, beauty and dating. Some people have mispronounced the brand as in beau traveler when it's supposed to go like byu-traveler as in beau in “beauty”. But that's okay, I don't regret anything about using The BeauTraveler as my brand and domain name.

So in this post, I want to share some tips on choosing the best domain names for your website so you don't regret it in the future. Here we go!
