It’s a good Sunday. I got a free milkshake from my favorite café, so I thought I’d write a Sunday Currently as I savor every sip. 😌
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. I just picked it up again this week, and I feel like I want to read again from the start because there are things I already forgot about it. Though, let me share some things I previously bookmarked because they resonated way too much (and maybe you’d feel the same too):
Which is why I am writing this book. To think. To understand. It just happens to be the way I’m made. I have to write things down to feel I fully comprehend them.
I have the same reason why I blog and journal. When I write things down, the thoughts somehow make sense than when they are just recklessly floating in my head. Also because I want to remember. My memory has been really whacked compared to when I was in school.
‘Relax your body, and the rest of you will lighten up.’ What’s the point of saying that to me? If I relaxed my body now, I’d fall apart. I’ve always lived like this, and it’s the only way I know how to go on living. If I relaxed for a second, I’d never find my way back. I’d go to pieces, and the pieces would be blown away.
I think if you live on edge (and with anxiety), you would know that to relax and to go easy is out of equation. It is indeed tiring, but like what it says here.. that’s how it feels. It is hard for me to stop when I start on something so when I eventually stop, it takes more to get back to it. Like in writing, I can’t seem to find my footing again, and I think that’s how I get stuck in a rut. But as long as I’m trying…
I am working on my Start Up review. I can sense that it’s going to be long and would have lots of spoilers since I want to discuss a lot of things. This drama really made too much noise on social media, so I want to tackle as much as I can. I want to delve why there are many people who hate Dosan and are in favor of Jipyeong. I am team neither. I think the viewers are the toxic ones and not the characters. Hahahaha! For now, you can read my review of The Smile Has Left Your Eyes first that I just posted yesterday.
Misery is such a scary thing. It drowns you until you can no longer pay importance to the people around you. It becomes bigger than yourself that you no longer see what’s outside of it. The world is no longer about you and others, it’s just all you trapped in your own peril.
The smell of chocolate and whipped cream in this milkshake I’m having.
I am wishing that I can really go back to blogging and find happiness in it. I’m happy now as I write this, but it could also be because of the milkshake. 🤪
I’m hoping that this pandemic ends already and that we all get better opportunities and chances at life; and that we can all keep our sanity until then.

HWANG IN YEOP!!! T_____T I blame True Beauty. I can’t remember if I started reading the webtoon around 2018 when a friend suggested I read I Love Yoo or around 2019. Anyway, I got excited because one of the main leads, Suho, seems to take after Seokjin. The BTS stan side of tweet was kind of hoping Seokjin would actually play the role if it turns into a drama. It did, but without him in the lineup. When the main roles were announced, it didn’t really excite me or I’m just in another zone. And then, I started hearing many different takes about how the drama is different from the webtoon, which is not new. Still, I didn’t start watching until Episode 8 was uploaded; that was when my friends convinced me that it is “different but amazing different”. And now here I am with my undying love with one of the leading men that plays the role of Seojun. T______T I would say that it is worth the watch despite the tremendous change they did to the storyline.
A business. Please let it happen, universe.
A presence of mind and not 0 attention span.
Sleepy. I wake up around 2am lately. Sometimes, at midnight, so I’m always knocked out around 8pm or 10pm.
I keep replaying this! Look at him T______T
That’s about it. Here’s to hoping that we can continue to create/blog and grow even more this year. This is a start, right? 🙂
Thank you for reading. I hope you can support me and leave a tip here. 🤎
I hope my words reach you,
