September 2018

Highlights, ramblings, what have you. Here goes! Gained a few more pounds because of serious PMS episodes + eating my feelings away to make up for all the anxiety, missing Ranie, and general "I need a win" moments. Must exercise, but ironically now that I am in the mood, I seem to be busier + [...]

Remembering how we started

I just binged Good Morning Call, a live-action J Drama chronicling a campus love story. As a result I am feeling nostalgic. I want to remember what my own campus love story was like. I had an epiphany -- not sure if it can be called that though -- that our own moments then sure [...]

Park Day, and turning 30

I turned 30 this month. I've worried about being 30 since I hit my mid-20s, and that worry over 30 as a deadline has catapulted me into lots of decisions that led to where I am today.

Beauty talk: 2 brands I like right now
