Surprise! Here’s a new blog post of me. Of course, it’s nothing as surprising and exciting as Taylor Swift dropping a new lead single, music video, and a whole ass album without any notice. My Twitter was very active with this news and you best believe that the less than day since the announcement, we have been talking about TS8 non-stop. In this post, I’ll be sharing my first impressions, thoughts, and favorite lyrics per track.
I’m not exactly sure how to do this anymore or what to write anymore. My last blog post was last June, and even then, it was about an experience four years ago. To say that my blog is outdated is an understatement. There’s so many new stories just from last year alone to share and they will most probably come in separate blog posts after this one. Fingers crossed. And 2020… Well, that’s a different book altogether. For all of us, me thinks.
I’ve been stuck at home for almost three weeks now, like most of us are. It’s the littlest things I miss: doing groceries, having a milktea run, plain old window shopping, even taking a quick nap on my Grab ride to work… I’m never taking anything for granted again. In the meantime, I have a lot of time to spare and I plan on using that to update my blog before it starts to really collect dust. Here’s a few, quick updates from the last couple of months:
I would just like to begin this by saying that Lasik is one of the best things I have done for myself in my 20’s. I have been wearing glasses since I was 12 – which is about half of my life! It’s been a pretty big inconvenience in my life, but I got used to it. I even tried contact lens for a year or so, but that was even more of an inconvenience, so I went back to glasses. I’ve been hearing about lasik from the past few years, but with the price it comes with, I was just non-committedly saying I’ll have it done one day. I absently check a few clinics from time to time that do Lasik and when I saw a promo that halved the price, I said, “You know what? This is a sign. Let’s do this.”
In my head, I already have at least five different ways to start my 2018 year-end post. But now that I’m typing this post down, I can’t seem to remember any of it. Oh well, here’s to winging it and hoping for the best – which is basically the attitude I have all throughout 2018.
Looking back at my 2017 year-ender post (that was deleted cause I accidentally deleted my blog), I see that I settled. Unfortunately for me, that’s also what I feel like I was doing in 2018 for some portions of my life. BUT, I also strived in other aspects of my life which I will happily take and is one of my goals for this year. It’s a year of ups and middle grounds, but overall, I was happy this year. I’ve been consistently happy for the past years and that’s something I’m very grateful for. To commemorate that, I’ll be sharing some of my 2018 highlights.
