The basic steps to adult life

First things first, register to vote.  When we hear the world adulting, it automatically translates to bills, making home-cooked meals, drinking tea, and maybe owning a bunch of discount cards and essential oils. While all of these are true, it's not where you start - at least in my experience. There'…

Kdrama review: Her Private Life and some fangirling shenanigans

It's been more than a week since I finished watching Her Private Life, and I still think of Ryan Gold and his pretty face. It's the first Kim Jae Wook drama I've seen and maybe it's time for me to broaden my horizon and start watching dramas of actors that are complete strangers to me. Anyway…

Creating goals when the new year still feels uncertain

Tabula rasa - a phrase I've learned from my favorite Gayle Forman book. It means clean slate. Starting over. Begin fresh. Leave everything behind as you move forward.

How 2020 has me feeling

When I said I'd go #NoGoals2020 , I only meant I was gonna take a break from all the goals I set for myself, something that I do every year.

How I did with Spotify's 2020 Wrapped

Okay, I did a complete 180 degrees. Over the years I've been boasting about my 20-year-old playlist that's consisted mainly of boyband music and grunge-y rock ballads. Those illegally downloaded mp3s helped me big time, in making it through the long, sleepless, and stressful nights i…
