It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted a life lately. Truth be told, life has been repetitive. I’ve been stuck at home and plan on staying at home until things get better – which basically means I’ll stay at home until mid-2021? It’s getting to a point where I don’t even know where my days are going. Anyway, let’s catch up.
have read zero books. I stopped reading books last May and haven’t found the urge to start a new one anytime soon. I am contemplating on opening a Scribd account for an easier access to books but will think more on it since subscription costs $8.99. The only thing I’ve been reading are Instagram captions and tweets. Both of which aren’t the best thing for my mental health but this is the only thing my brain can handle at the moment.
have written all my Japan posts and have successfully scheduled it every Tuesdays. It was fun writing it and going down memory lane but it is sad to think that I won’t be able to go to Japan until 2021 or maybe even 2022. No harm there but I really wanted to bring my mom to Japan or maybe Korea.
have watched barely anything, to be honest. I mostly spend my days on Twitter and Instagram and enjoy short forms of entertainment. I can’t stand watching kdramas, series or movies lately. I did manage to finish some (in a desperate attempt to lower my screen time) and here’s my quick rating/review for it:
- Extreme Job – Korean movie about cops. I recommend this; watch this. It was funny.
- Two Bros – Korean movie about two brothers and their family. Skip this.
- #Alive – Korean movie on surviving a zombie outbreak. Skip this.
- Another Miss Oh – Re-watched this ’cause I wanted something cheesy. It’s okay, you can watch this.
- Touch my heart – Too freaking cliche and such a waste of time. Skip this.
- Marriage Not Dating – Re-watched this cause again I wanted something cheesy. I ended up not finishing this and skipping a lot of parts. Skip this.
- Somewhere in the rain – Re-watched this for Jung Hae In. Watch for Jung Hae In.
- My Shy Boss – Only watched 10 minutes of it, bored and not interested at all. SKIP THIS.
- Unsolved Mysteries – WATCH THIS.
have wished for a covid vaccine and for our daily numbers to be back at hundreds a day. Thousands a day isn’t very promising and it honestly looks like the government’s solution for this pandemic is for the strongest and richest to survive.
have hoped and still hoping for a covid vaccine. I have friends (emphasis on the plural form of this noun) who have lost jobs, have been “demoted”, and have struggled mentally because of their anxiety. It’s a hard life out there and it’s a lot harder with this pandemic.
have loved being with my husband for the past six months. I really love and appreciate him. He is a blessing to my life and this pandemic has proven and solidified that.
have wanted nothing more but to have a vaccine for covid. I also want our government officials to step up. I wouldn’t say I’m apathetic but I have always been neutral about the government. Living in a democracy for me means giving our rightfully (?) elected officials a chance at doing their jobs but this shit show has somehow gotten from bad to worse to worst. I don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. All I’m seeing are substandard decisions and the Filipinos getting the short end of the stick every single time.
have felt anxious, scared, thankful, and loved. The past months have been a whirlwind of emotions. It still is every single day until this pandemic is over. I am always so anxious and scared for my family but at the same time I am so thankful for all my blessings. It’s not easy to keep strong and positive during these times so do everything you can to keep yourself and everyone you know in check. 🙂
So, how are you? I hope you’re fine and you’re staying strong despite what we’re going through. Stay strong and we can do this.
