Hello there, May



Hello there, MayHappy Weekend! Is what I would say if a rocket debris isn't being expected to reenter our atmosphere this weekend. And the article did try to be reassuring but it wasn't that reassuring at all. Oh, boy. I hope everyone stays safe.  I can't go to sleep because my anxiety med isn't doing its magic of being a shock absorber, so I thought, why not finish up this post that I meant to have published this afternoon. 

If no one replies "General Kenobi" under the comment section below, I'm gonna explode into a thousand bats and then summon Dracula from Hell. Let me know if you understood the reference in this new series. 


  • Off to a rocky start, but we (by that I mean me and my distressed emotional state) got through it
  • Really enjoyed Holo Taco Mint Mojito while I was out and about. Never been happier to see the sun. This Holo is unlike any other holos I've tried. It's like intense chrome holo. 
  • 70 Minute Premiere of The Bad Batch on Disney+ | So stoked about it. Be on the lookout for a review coming up
  • Made new pin designs
  • Got my second dose of the vaccine (Moderna)! I was pretty sore for a couple of days. I'm a bit better now. But I still get the occasional abdominal pain and headache. And it was so painful not to be able to sleep on my left side (I'm a side sleeper). The rest of my family got Pfizer. 
  • Went back to Tiger Sugar: Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cream Mousse 
  • Downloaded a bunch of free books with pretty covers on iBooks
  • New lock screen: Clone Troopers | Protect my boys at all cost: Boil, Waxer, Rex, Tup, Fives, Jesse and Hardcase ; o ; 
  • Finished the Hydrangea Event for Pocket Camp. I love my campers so much: Lucky, Kiki, Lobo, Marina, Freya, Twiggy, Julian, Diana, and of course Stitches xx! 
  • Watched the Umbaran episodes and Innocents of Ryloth (Star Wars: Clone Wars) ; o ; 
  • Been working on my modules. So much reading. So many articles. My eyes definitely need a lot of screen breaks. I hope to take my test by the end of June. I self-regulate every three days.
  • Been loving two-toned nail looks. I always felt like doing your nails this way was chaotic energy, but I like it now hahaha
  • Weekly workouts are amazing 
  • Daily Japanese lessons are awesome. I've maintained my Diamond League status. Although I did forgo my streaks, because I feel like it isn't that important to me 
  • Nightly diaphragm/resonance exercises are also great progress. In fact, it helps me fall asleep. 
  • Enjoying Hot Funyun snacks. I know we're no longer in the early stages of the pandemic, but this snack feels like a hot and rare commodity. A lot of stores still don't have inventory as they used to 
  • I have this comment on YT that went viral. It has over 3k likes and it made a lot of people laugh. It's such a good feeling. And I think that maybe where most of my traffic came from for the month of April. 
  • I joined a Makeup Rehab group on Reddit lol. I thought it wasn't gonna work, but it's actually working
  • Been enjoying the private/offline life a lot. I use my private Twitter a lot for venting and it feels like a safe space to be | I don't find public posting as appealing as I did before 
  • I know it looks like I haven't been active on my blog, but behind the scenes, I was actually adding a lot of content on my drafts. I don't know how I'm gonna get them all up, but I hope I can get most of them published and polished soon. A lot of stuff is a-brewin' :3 
  • Finally figured out how to make colorful eyeshadows work on my eye shape! It's all thanks to Betty Jean's make-up tutorial where she did this blending technique where you placed the shadows in a "diagonal shape" :3! I am currently wearing ten eyeshadows on my lid from Nomad Cosmetic's Harajuku palette while editing this post (wow, who am I??? I only ever use one shadow) and it looks so striking and pretty (the eyeshadow, not me lol)! xx  
  • Found my hair shears. I cut myself a bit though . _ . ;;; Well, I fixed my bangs and I did save money from going to the hairdresser. So it's all groovy baby. I just gotta do it in the mirror sink instead of in front of the trash can where I couldn't see anything Px 


  • Weekly Bad Batch episodes; o ; I can't watch it on time though. For Central Time it gets released at 2 AM and I have to get up early in the morning so I can't ; o ; 
  • I've been working on a podcast series for my blog. I have 9.5 episodes ready. It's not truly a podcast, but more like a podcast script to talk about topics I care about
  • Season 4 of Castlevania on 5/13. So thrilled to hear Richard Armitage's voice again from the trailer. 
  • Get back into reading | I'm reading The Slade House right now by David Mitchell 
  • Finishing Delta of Venus by Anais Nin
  • Sort of revived my Nook. It's super slow though and I can't download any magazines. But the free books I downloaded there also have pretty covers and good classic stories, so I can't wait to use it more often
  • Keep using the pink wedge sponge I bought at Daiso. It's so soft and bouncy :3 And it's very easy to clean
  • Get back to practicing digital art. My blog is three years old now, and it still manages to get traffic even without me posting a lot of new things, so I can redirect more of my time to sketching and drawing again
  • Watching a lot of TCM films: Manhattan Melodrama (1934), The Merry Widow (1934), and Operator 13 (1934) 
  • Now that summer is bringing the heat, I can't wait to start wearing neon nail polishes :3 
  • The creative project that I thought I dropped is actually being picked up again. It's the extended version of     [          ]. I just need a working title to get the ball rolling. 

What are your May adventures so far? Let's chat in the comment section below. Take care!
