Guess who’s back, back again? Okay, this has been going on long enough. Kailangan mabalik ang blogging mojo to keep this going. Time gods, hear me out please.
LISTENING: GOT7 + JJ Project
Okay, okay. Tuluyan na talaga akong kinain ng sistema. To be honest, I couldn’t believe that I’d be hooked to K-Dramas and K-Pop. If you asked me a year ago to watch or listen to anything Korean, I’d probably turn you down.
I don’t know exactly how I discovered GOT7 but one thing’s for sure … I’m super obssessed. I first watched My Swagger and got super impressed. Maliban sa sobrang pogi nila, they got moves! I’ve been listening to A, Just Right, Fly, Hard Carry, Never Ever, Stop stop it, and Let Me non-stop. Hindi ko din maiwasang sumayaw every time and instant mood booster talaga sila. My ultimate bias is Jackson Wang though my bias wreckers are JB and Youngjae.
READING: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
I haven’t read a book in months and sobrang nakaka-disappoint sa sarili yun because I promised myself na I would read more. Motivation na din kasi I have a lot of books I want to read before this year ends. So basically, I only have 4 months to achieve that.
I had this book since last Christmas and I only had time to read this during our last trip to Baguio. You see, I have this habit of reading whenever I go somewhere, siguro for total detachment sa mga bagay-bagay.
I’m only 1/4 of the way through the book and so far, so good. Hopefully, I could finish the book this weekend.
I have a long list of K-Dramas to watch but this was highly recommended by my office mates. Actually, I just finished W: Two Worlds a few weeks ago and She Was Pretty a week before that. Kaya nag-ceasefire muna ako after that and I got super busy din sa office.
I’m currently at episode 16 and I’m at the edge of my seat every time. Sobrang swoon-worthy ni Ji Chang Wook dito lalo na when his character parkours and every time the theme song plays my heart really flutters. Ewan ko kung bakit. I only have 4 episodes left!
PLAYING: Mobile Legends
Okay, okay. My office mates would be my influencers for this one. Actually, I’ve heard about this even before my office mates told me about the game but I only got to try this 2 weeks ago due to my lack of free time. Since it’s super fast-paced, a game only last for 10-15 minutes kaya medyo perfect kapag may hang time sa office or if I couldn’t sleep at night.
A month ago, I realized how much stuff I have in my room. Both things I haven’t used in over a month and things I know I’ll never use. So, I’ve decided to let those things go. I just started purging my closet and my vanity area. My plan is to get rid half of my closet and keep clothes that I really wear. That’s basically essential and basic pieces.
Hopefully, I could continue purging next weekend.
NEEDING: More Korean skincare products
I’ve been using what the COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Toner and Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence for over a month now and I’ve been loving the results. My 10-step Korean skin care routine isn’t complete yet kasi I still don’t have a serum, sheet masks, and an eye cream.
I have my eyes on the Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Serum to be used in the morning, Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Serum to be used at night, COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch for breakout prevention, COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All-in-one Cream, COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream, COSRX Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser, and the COSRX BHA Summer Pore Minish Serum for happy pores.
Ang mahal naman magpaganda. HAHA!
THINKING: Moving abroad
This has been on my mind since last year and with all the things happening right now … I think I might push through with it soon. It might look like that I’m running away from headaches but I think moving abroad would be good for me … not just professionally but emotionally and mentally as well.
There are a lot of pros and cons for this big move but I think I’ll do this for the greater good. Well, let’s just see what will happen in the next few weeks. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
FEELING: Tired but getting back up
“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”
I know that everyone is battling something and I’m no excuse not to fight my own battles. But lately, I’m very tired of the fight. I’m not saying that I’m generally giving up but I’m just tired. Tired of the lies, backstabbing, front-stabbing, gossip, people leaving, and so on.
Well, over time medyo nasanay nalang din and those really make me stronger. So technically, I didn’t lose kaya try me!
That’s it, pancit!
