My last blog post was April 20. Yikes.
I want to say I wanted a social media detox for a while, or work has been just very busy, but no, I was just not in the mood to write and I started getting into Chinese dramas HAHA. A little trivia about me: whenever I get into something I spend a lot of my time enjoying it. I would manage to spend even my little breaks while working watching C-dramas and I would even eat while doing so. I was an addict, and though it was not something I should be proud of, I thought you should know since I was away for quite a long time.
Eternal Love; Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms
When I started watching Korean dramas, I developed a bias towards them. I would only watch and look forward to K-dramas since those were the first one that got me into fangirling. But because of boredom, I got curious and decided to start watching a Chinese drama. I browsed MyDramalist and discovered Eternal Love, which is a fantasy, romance drama. I was a bit skeptical because the synopsis was screaming FANTASY in all caps and in bold. I was at the point of my fangirl life wherein I was starting to get uninterested of the usual cliches in K-dramas, so starting a whopping 58-episode, and on top of it FANTASY, drama was scary for me.
But instead of stopping at episode 1, I GOT HOOKED. It was not everything I haven’t seen, but the story, the acting, and the kilig scenes were OH SO GOOD I started telling my friends to watch it. Yes it’s a 58-episode drama, but don’t get intimidated because it only runs for more or less 40 minutes per episode you wouldn’t even notice it’s already the end because it was that good. The only bad thing I can think right now is because of this drama, I am now having a hard time looking for what to watch next.*sighs*
On the way to a healthier, better life.
I have decided that it’s time to finally lose weight and get healthier. I grew up as a chubby kid because I was spoiled by my whole family. Yes, I was bullied in school but not much because I learned how to fight back from my two brothers, so being a chubby kid was not a big deal to me then. But after college, I realized I have to change my lifestyle to get fit. It was a struggle for me to start because I am very stubborn. But this year, I have a goal. I need to get fit before I turn 30 and that would be my birthday gift to myself. If you’re wondering if I’m turning 30 this year, no I’m not haha it’s just that I believe that getting fit is not something I could achieve in just a few months.
I started with following a strict diet, and now that I’ve got my food intake regulated I want to regularly workout too. I am very lazy. As in. I don’t even like going out so making myself get out of the house to would be a struggle. As of July, I have already lost a few pounds and inches, but to make sure I am really fit and not just losing weight I have to start exercising regularly too. I’m crossing my fingers.
Wanted: New Hobby
I’ve learned cross-stitching, and baking. Lately I’ve been into reading poetry and learning Mandarin(yes, it’s because of my recent obsession over Chinese dramas lol), but I feel like I need a new hobby. My guy friend recommended assembling Gundam robots and I don’t know if it’s for me. I am very envious of people who are very artsy and are into calligraphy, because I don’t have an ounce of art in me. I am very bad at drawing, and my doodles aren’t the cute doodles you’d love to stare at during classes. I’d love to learn violin but I have yet to search for a teacher. I tried learning the guitar but I’m afraid my fingers aren’t long enough play it haha!
As you can see, my life has been really exciting lately(not), because of Chinese dramas and getting fit(omg) LOL. Maybe I should just start randomly typing, instead of planning my entries from now on, because planning posts has never been my forte, obviously. But wait, aside from these a few more things, though:
- Game of Thrones is back!!!
- The rainy season has started and it’s a bit cold again, but the FROGS. UGH.
- I need to get back into reading. My Goodreads account has been emailing me to go back, it is that bad.
- I’m thinking of posting about beauty related things here, should I?(here I go planning again, you never learn Ella!)
Okay, I should really stop. This post has become longer than I’ve expected haha! Let’s brace ourselves, because winter(Monday) is here.
