Too many things to watch

Posted on 18-05-2015

Hi guys, long time no see!  Almost half a year has gone by and I haven’t updated at all.

I have been busy, but mostly I have just had nothing to blog about.  I’ve been sick for the past week, catching the flu or something from my brother… now my whole family is sick and we’ve been pretty much quarantined in our own home.

It’s also graduation season, I managed to attend Calene’s & my CCA friend’s on Monday, but missed out on Michael’s on Thursday because I was really sick… feel terrible that I missed it, but it’s probably for the best considering whatever I had was clearly pretty contagious :/  Bryan dropped by with a bouquet of ‘Get Well Soon’ roses and Michael even came by with some Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough Ice Cream for me!  THANKS GUYS.  I have the best friends, I don’t even.  I’m glad I’m feeling better now… there really couldn’t be a worse time to get sick.

I was too tired to study, so I ended up watching some anime and dramas.  I feel incredibly guilty that I’m now so behind… but I can’t seem to find my motivation to study these days.  I wish that I didn’t have to study any more, as much as I guess I should appreciate uni life, I’m envious of my friends that can just relax on weekends and after work without any homework or pending tests/exams on their mind.

Anyway, here’s what I’ve been watching while trying to recover:
Dramas

  1. School 2015: Who are you?
  2. Orange Marmalade [read the webtoon :D]

Animes

  1. Ore Monogatari!! [this is quickly becoming my favourite]
  2. Assassination Classroom [super good anime!]
  3. Shokugeki no Soma [HAHAH don’t judge me, I like the cooking and story]
  4. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works [wasn’t super impressed with the pace of the story but the graphics are perfection]
  5. Is it wrong for me to pick up girls in a dungeon? [story is pretty meh]

I’m completely terrible with no self control…. so I have also been following Masterchef LOL.  I don’t think I’ll pass uni at this rate.  Reynold is the best, and I also like Ashleigh & Jessica [I liked John in the first team challenge but the recent ep :(].

Since I was feeling better today, I chopped some of my hair.  I’ve let it grow so much that it looks like completely overgrown for my height, because I don’t like going to the hairdresser.  I can’t really do much with my hair either, like dye it or anything, because it looks kind of unprofessional if I do.  Well, anyway it’s still long… mostly to avoid drawing attention to any mistakes I made when I cut it.  I think it’s cleaner now though, at the very least.

Let me know if you’re still a reader of my blog <3  I hope that I can become more consistent.

Do I Even Study

Posted on 28-10-2014

Hello guys,

I find just about every excuse to procrastinate and have been stuck on this one study topic for the past 3 days lol.  help.

Anyway I was reading back on some old posts and my friends posts because I’m a stalker and it’s so funny how things change.  And it’s also funny how things don’t.

Like… in 2010 the iPad just came out.  WTF.  I feel like my mind is stuck in the 2000’s cause when I see ‘2010’ or whatever doesn’t feel that long ago but actually 4 years is quite a long time.  So much can change in just 4 years.  There were no iPads 4 years ago and people were still making fun of the name.  Now it’s just a commonly accepted product.  Almost 4 years ago, I started dating Bryan.  I was friends, but not yet best friends, with Calene.  I was still in high school.  My dad was still very sick.  I hadn’t even properly met many of the people who I now consider my good friends.  I didn’t have a Macbook.

But I think since like, long ago.  I have always been the same inside… the way I type is very similar, even since Grade 6.  But of course you learn things.  Your decisions become smarter, that’s for sure.  Like, I made so many dumb choices looking back… things I will readily admit to regretting, but at the same time these are the things that made me who I am, in the end.  I think I have improved myself, growing up.  I’m not so timid although I still struggle to socialise and connect with people LOL.  Like, it has never ever come naturally to me.  I’m not sure if that’s just how my brain is wired or what.  But socialising is something I really have to push myself to do, unless I feel close enough to the person, which only happens if I am able to socialise enough with them in the first place to become close.

Anyway, no matter how much time goes by I feel like feelings are still the same.  Heck, 4 years ago, I was confused about what I wanted to do after graduating High School.  I was worried about what course I should take.  I was stressing about VCE.  In the present, I’m still stressing and slightly confused about my future but I feel much more comfortable about it having experienced new things like student society life and work and stuff.  So now, I feel like I’ll be okay even if the path I’m walking looks a little blurry.

Another thing I found interesting was the fact that even in 2010 my routine was still the same as it is now.  Before bed: chat on msn/skype, shower, watch subscriptions on Youtube, sleep late.  Still living by the same “everything balances out” theory, kind of.

But yeah.  I don’t know what the point of this post is.  I wish I could stick to blogging routines better and take nice photos and stuff.  Procrastinating.

P.S. I cringe when I see other people mix up their “Your” and “You’re”‘s.  But I cringe even more when that person is me, LOL.

Hectic Week + Flu + Birthday Party

Posted on 08-10-2014 | Tags: ,

Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I blogged or put up a new video. As usual I have been caught up with a billion other things – trying to stay afloat in Law, being Marketing Director of KIMBAP, applying for and going to programs, (soon enough) applying for Vacation work, working at my current job and planning for my 21st Birthday Party which was last Saturday.

I’ll be doing a post about it very soon (I hope) because it was quite a lot to plan but I had a heap of fun doing it! I’m a lover of cute things so I decided to have a Kawaii Party, where the theme was generally pastel colors but the dessert was to be Kawaii themed (think Rilakkuma, Hello Kitty, etc.). Gotta admit I only planned the visuals of the party – like it was very clear in my head how everything should look, but not so much what people should do or play. I was super busy during the party because my Mum did so much cooking, it would just be so bad of me to sit back and relax while she did everything so yeah. I was rushing around like crazy. I felt a bit bad I didn’t invite everyone… like I still feel bad now LOL. Honestly I had to cut out a few people from various friendship groups because my mum told me not to have more than about 30ish guests :S

ANYWAY BACK TO THE PURPOSE OF THIS POST.
I’m sick. LOL. After my party, I probably caught the worst flu ever from Bryan. I know I get sick a lot but wow, even Bryan had to stay home from work to recover from this one and I’ve been potatoing around in my bed for like 3 days already. Just when I thought it was getting better, it got kinda worse this morning so just my luck. It’s okay though. I need time to catch up with stuff anyway.

So anyway I was spoilt on my birthday, I received some lovely necklaces/earrings from Bryans mum, and my friend Sharon, Photo Book from Calene and Nelsonville LOL. My friend Ling was kind enough to make a delicious vanilla, coconut and passionfruit cake that was super delicious and professional, as well as some yummy macarons.

Also, Bryan and my friends pitched in to get me a few cool things. First one is a Blue Yeti Mic + pop filter! YAY no more crap quality sound in my videos, I’m sososo happy ^__^ I tried getting it to work on Sunday but it didn’t seem to be working, then of course my brother did some stuff to it and it works!! And it has zero noise and it’s just a pleasure to listen to and it’s just really great.. droolsss

I also received a Clarisonic Mia 2 in Pink, which is awesome. I’ve been using it for the past few days and I felt a difference after the first use already. I’ll be doing a video about it after I’ve used it for a few weeks.

Finally, the biggest surprise was the Marc by Marc Jacobs, rose-colored watch. I love it! I’m glad Bryan really knows my tastes and it’s super generous of everyone to band together to get me such cool gifts, I’m incredibly thankful to my amazing friends.

Might add some pics of the gifts here later idk
Gotta get back to boring lectures now tho x
HOPEFULLY NEW VIDEO SOON. As soon as I recover from this flu.

Post-Corp Dinner

Posted on 18-08-2014

So after stressing out like crazy for the past week or two, I am now back to my normal routine, yay!  Corporate Dinner was a success, so it was all worth it.  I also had my presentation on Friday (the morning after), which I think went pretty okay.  I’m so happy and relieved that most things are done and I can finally focus on those assignments I’ve been neglecting to look at LOL.

I’ve been trying to catch up with all the uni I have missed, which is going okay.  Slowly getting there, but some of the lectures are so dry.  I’ve also had some time to myself to relax a bit… de-stress.  Still have quite a bit to do in terms of applying for first year programs and stuff which I’ll hopefully get to tomorrow.

Once everything is back on track I shall get back into video making.  I reallyyy want to learn Adobe After Effects to make some cool animation-y type stuff but it’ll be a while yet until I can do that.

Sorry for this boring update! x

Corporate Dinner: Learning, Stressing Out & Nerves

Posted on 13-08-2014 | Tags: ,

Omg guys. Corporate Dinner is TODAY. I’m still up at freaking 3am because I was preparing 100 name tags, like 50 place cards, finishing the Corporate Dinner booklet and overall handling various issues that have reallyyy tested me.  Finding myself frustrated when people ask me to do more things because they don’t seem to realise how much I am actually doing atm?!  I haven’t even had time to breathe ide.  If I wasn’t working on the booklet or the table seating arrangement (which was EXTREMELY frustrating, by the way), I was working on my presentation for Friday with my group member Jack, or dealing with emails or last minute issues.

Exhausting.  I am really exhausted.

Like legit.  The table seating arrangements nearly made me cry because they’re so annoying.  People have dietary requirements, people don’t give us those dietary requirements until it’s already sent in, people back out last minute or request seating changes or whatever.  There is nothing more annoying in this world, I swear.  I spent like a week doing this and then a rep backs out and my perfect preference arrangement is ruined.  Oh well, luckily Bryan saved the day and contacted his cousin who found us a replacement yay!

So, besides that drama, I decided since I’m insane, to take on making the Corporate Dinner Booklet.  It was only supposed to be a casual thing, nothing too fancy… but somehow I got really into making it so I’m excited to print it out because, as I keep telling people, it’s my baby.  I’m proud of it!  As some of you may know, I’ve always wanted to like publish my own like… magazine thing because I find designing them really fun.  I’ve always been a bit of a noob at InDesign, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try to learn how to use the program because I never understood why it was so popular in like, the magazine/book industry.  I wondered what made it different from say, Photoshop or Illustrator.  WELL GUYS I FINALLY KNOW AFTER 8 YEARS OF DESIGNING LOL.

I’m so glad that I’ve learnt something so useful from this.  Lemme explain to you what makes InDesign different to PS and Illustrator.
As you probs know, InDesign lets you make booklets with multiple pages.  So what, right?

Well InDesign has this thing called ‘Master Pages’ which is basically a page where you can make a template to ensure consistency – NTS: learn how to make this template show up above other objects.

Anyway, that isn’t even the best part about it.  InDesign is the best, because you can put a bunch of info in an excel spreadsheet and do a thing called ‘Data Merge’ to import all that info into the areas you specify!  And it can even put in a whole folder of images for you, automatically.  What even.  2 years ago I was making name tags one by one.  SO THIS IS HOW THEY PRINT INDIVIDUAL TICKET NUMBERS?!  So many revelations just from making this booklet.

Anyway yeah I can’t sleep, even though I’m exhausted.  At least I had dinner with Bryan today.  I even drove him home! (on my Ls with my wonderful mum) … I think that was the first time I have driven so far at night time.  We didn’t die at least hahahah.

Oh also I have lost my dress which I’m meant to wear to CD, FML.  I don’t know what to do… I might just go to Portmans and buy a dress in the morning, sigh.  Why am I such a messy person?  Can’t even find it even though I dug through like all my clothes.  More things to frustrate me in this time of stress.  I definitely learnt how to deal with external problems though… those things that you have no control over.  Sometimes it’s better to just… not get ahead of yourself.  Don’t try to be super organised and a perfectionist because in the end, everything gets changed last minute anyway.  It’s better to just relax and not have to deal with everything.
