Life lately

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.

To keep it short and simple: I'm thirty+ years old. Still plenty young, but not as young as I used to be.


  1. Bakit hindi niyo po nagustuhan yung Touch Her Heart? Or baka nagustuhan ko dahil ang sad ng love story nila sa Goblin. Eniweys po, nakakuha ako ng ilalagay ko sa Watchlist ko. Hehe. Thanks for this po. 😊😊😊

    1. Feel ko kasi naghahanap ako ng something deeper? Parang sayang yung pairing nila kung nahuhulaan ko lahat ng pakilig nila LOL. Baka dahil matanda na ako at feel ko nahuhulaan ko na lahat ng ganap sa K-drama. Pero cute pa din sila talaga lalo na ung unang mga episodes, diba! ❤

      May ma-rrecommend ka ba na K-dramas? Hope you're doing fine!!! 🙂

      1. Ah hehe. Light nga lang po ng story. Ang sakit po kasi nung story nila sa Goblin eh. I need happy love story for them kaya pinanuod ko talaga at hindi naman ako nabigo. ❤ Hindi niyo pa po napanuod yung Goblin?

        Nako madami po. Gusto ko ngayong pinapanuod yung mga may deep stories po. Napanuod niyo na po yung Go Back Couple and Familiar Wife? Gusto ko po yung story na ‘to. Not yet married here pero gusto ko yung mga ganito po. Gusto ko po kasing iconvince sarili ko na mahirap ang married life kaya huwag muna pasukin. Worst, ayokong pasukin ever . Hehe. Because This Is My First Life, maganda din po. Light lang po pero ang deep. Hanudaw. 😊😊

      2. Napanuod ko na Goblin and di ko sya type 😛 Try ko yung first 2 recs mo. Sana magustuhan ko kasi nga sobrang picky ko lately. Mahirap talaga ang married life kaya sobrang importante humanap ng partner na swak for you. Yung kaya ka tiisin, intindihin, at most importantly ung kaya mag compromise. 😛


  2. After all these months, I think I’m starting to get my bearings back. I gave up on the government, set a time limit when reading the news, and just focused on things I can control. At the end of the day that’s all I can do 😦

    I also limited social media use and started reading blogs again. I like that I can control which content I can see here on WordPress. I also started one myself.

    I started reading your posts since 2017 but I lost access to my old account. I’m happy you’re still writing!!! The other ones I’m following are no longer updating their blogs, like kaharuhay and Jeff (travel blog). I hope they’re ok.

    1. I totally agree on getting my bearings back, after a few down months I’m finally feeling like myself again. As for me and social media, I have a very limited following that I’ve curated over the years that’s why it’s okay for me to spend so much of my time there, lol.

      Wahh 2017 seems so far away? What’s your old blog?


      1. I should clean up my following lists too!

        My blog was mostly empty! Not relevant 😂

        Don’t be creeped out, I can still remember the earlier days of your married life, and you posted about commuting and having a less convenient life than what you were used to. I enjoy your candid stories.

  4. Hi Kat!
    I am with you. I really hope that the vaccine comes out soon. My boyfriend and I are also staying in as much as possible and I plan on wearing a mask in public indefinitely. I am glad that you and your husband have each other throughout this strange time.
    I just started reading again, but also went through months without reading. As you know, I am kind of an insta and social media addict given the chance. Haha 🙂 The library back in my hometown allows us to borrow digital books for free and I am able to download them for 21 days on my kindle app. I wonder if one of your library has that resource. I am currently reading “The Fault in our Stars” which is a very sweet book, but also pretty sad.
    This week I was experiencing some seasonal, fall depression that I usually get this time of year and yesterday morning I had a meltdown / panic attack for no real reason. It felt good to talk about it with Christopher. I am thankful that we have each other.
    I hope you will continue to stay healthy, safe, and occupied with good things in your life.

    ❤ Alana
