Life Update | Why I’ve been MIA

Hey guys!

I’ve missed this. Sitting in front of the pc and just allow myself to create. It’s not like I’ve not been creating anything but this, blogging, it’s a whole different feeling. I don’t know how long this will be so just play safe and grab a cup of coffee or tea, and let’s chat!

I feel like I need to have my planner next to me while writing this, and here’s why: I don’t post since last year *gasp*!

Okay, so let’s start from my last post: Blogmas. I’ve quitted Blogmas because I was forced to. Let me explain: A f*cking hacker entered my mail and my accounts and police needed to be involved (just the personal ones and not the blog ones but better safe than sorry). To play safe, I needed to take a break from everything: social media, mails, hell, even my bank account! I couldn’t access anything via internet (except for the occasional googling of “how to *insert anything from stopping a cold from getting worse to baking cookies without white sugar*”). For me, and for you (because I don’t really knew who the hell was and what he was able to do) I needed to quit without notice. And for that, I apologise.

Later in the new year, we’ve found out that probably the person who hacked into my accounts it’s a kid with a lot of time in his/her hands.

Moving on to better news: I finally have my driving license! I’m finally a fully functional adult! Want to know the best? My practical driving test was on January 13th, which happened to be… Friday the 13th! No such thing as bad luck!

Also, remember this post? Yeah, I didn’t move. Yet! Maybe another 2 to 4 months and then I’m outta here!

Humm, let me think what more? Oh yeah, I’m writing a play, like a proper musical and have another book on my thoughts. I don’t know if I’m going through with this but yeah creatively I’ve been busy.

Speaking of creativity, I have a few YouTube videos planned, some others filmed, but I’m having so much fun with the editing process that it may be a while until I post anything.

My acne has gotten better, my anxiety has been worse (stressful times, private stuff that I really don’t feel like talking about online) and yeah, that’s it. I think. Oh yeah I’ve changed my “About Me” page and would love if you could give it a cheeky read!
Also, have you seen La La Land? OH.MY.GOD. I’m obsessed. Like I’ve never found Ryan Gosling particularly hot (I’ve got a thing for bearded guys as you know) but that voice of his! OH.MY.GOD.

I just realised that this is a short post, but hey I got all posts until March 31th lined up ready to be published, so keep coming back for more!

What have you been up to? What film got you more excited since the beginning of the new year? Let me know in the comments! Also, make sure you follow me (just search @ellaivoire) so we can keep up with one another!

    We all go through to stressful and depressing time that we don’t feel like talking about. We’ve all been there. Everything will get better soon! 🙂 Keep the faith.

    It took a lot of time for the mess with the hacker to be sorted out. If there is anything good, it makes you tougher to hack in the future as the experience itself would have inspired you to be more paranoid of security. Nowadays, that cannot be such a thing, as more and more of our lives are online, then the more we need to ensure no one takes advantage with malicious intentions.

    So, I am glad you are back to writing. You are right, it’s much like talking, more than anything else. Keep it up, Ella.

    I’m sorry you have been hacked that’s such a stressful experience. But the good news is you’re back! I sometimes struggle with keeping the blog up to date , it’s only normal. Congrats on the driving license!

    Good to hear back from you! Totally understandable with the MIA thing, given that you need to cooperate with the investigation. Congratulations with the license and yes, I watched la la land and it was amazeballs!

    Wow! Bad luck you were hacked! I’m not sure I could go offline for so long.. did they end up finding out who it was? Congrats on the driving test! I got my licence on the exact same day!! How weird right?

    I have never been able to understand those hackers. Why would you steal someone’s account? There is no purpose except making me really, really mad. My e-mail is so boring that I sometimes don’t read it either. 😀

    How sad that you’ve been hacked. I experienced that and even my money were stolen. Good thing, I immediately prevented it. A lot of things happened to you and even mine as well. I’ve been MIA also because of my pregnancy but I’m slowly going back to blogging.

    I’m glad that things are looking up for you! Congrats on getting your driver’s license! I’m afraid I never got mine because I live in a city where no one drives. I’m so sorry about the hacking though! Glad they caught the guy.

    It’s so terrible that a hacker entered your accounts and that you were forced to take a break. That must have been so frustrating. Glad you’re back! Congratulations on your drivers license! I still have to watch La La Land. It’s been nominated for so many Oscars!! As soon as I can I’ll check it out.
