I went to the doctor last week to get my left ear checked. He asked me about my job and if I work from home too because of the pandemic. I told him I have been working from home since early 2018. So he said, “so nothing has changed?”
I know he only meant the work setup. Still, it made me wonder… has nothing really changed?
Maybe nothing has changed in me, but the world around me did. A lot.
2020 was pretty much a blur. It was all a series of making dalgona coffee, streaming too many shows to cope, quick grocery runs, and work. I didn’t even try to finish my stories or do a reading challenge. Didn’t get into fitness or download TikTok. Nada. I was a potato. 😂 I kept asking myself why I was suffering when the lockdown didn’t even change my routine that much? Maybe it’s because of all the things that happened that kinda piled up, but I don’t know.
I also had to seek for a professional help because my mental state started to affect my performance at work. It felt like I was watching the world went on despite the hell we were in, yet I was stuck. Yet, I couldn’t do anything worthwhile.
The first month of 2021, I lost a big project. It was a wake up call after a long, deep sleep.
That’s when I started picking up learning Korean again. It was in 2017 when I attempted to study the language, but it didn’t go anywhere after I memorized the alphabet. It has been 8 months since I started studying ‘for real’ and I’m really happy about my progress.
Still Streaming Too Many Shows
Tada! All the shows that I have watched this year. Some were the ones I already watched before. I’m still lazy to do reviews for these! But hopefully, after I write this, I get the will to work on them too.
**KCKC is part of my classes for studying Korean. We watch a kdrama to discuss some culture practices and also some grammar points in certain scenes.
My Little Shop
I did a couple of shirt designs that I’m selling now. I still have on-hand shirts, let me know if you want to buy them. Please give them love. 🥰
Reading Slump No More
I am on my 5th book this year! That’s a huge feat given that I had years of reading one or no book at all. I am reading A Court of Thorns and Roses series and I am frustrated. 😂 I read everyday now. I’m really happy about it.
So this is how I cope during the pandemic, I guess. How about you? How are you coping?

Do you plan to have any V-necks or lower necklines in your collection soon? If you are, ping me. Your prints are interesting.
Yeah, you are right. We felt nothing changed with ourselves or life but honestly, our surroundings have changed a lot. By the way, it’s my first time to know from our group that someone studies Korean. I’ve done my Korean classes but I’m still self-studying for TOPIK.
