Life’s been so busy lately… I can’t believe Hoshiru is getting neglected again. No! I won’t let that happen! T_T.. Well anyways, I got a few updates to talk about here.

In case I never mentioned on here.. I’m back in school again! I decided to take classes for an associates degree Web Application Development! Going back for that webmaster dreamヽ(≧▽≦)ノ wooo! For this quarter I’m taking 8 credits, 3 classes. We’re currently on Week 3, and so far so good! I’m staying on top of all my assignments and still know what’s going on in class. (that sounds weird to say but TBH, by the time midterms come around I’m usually already behind in class). This time around I’m going to give school my all!!

Funny thing is, the same week I started school, my sister was getting ready to move to Japan so I was helping her out with moving shenanigans. I’m a little sad that my sister is moving away.. AGAIN! Well,  she’s been living abroad on and off since we’re in college so I’m used to it by now.

Work has also been picking up like crazy. Because some of our newer team members haven’t seen our work volume this high before, they don’t understand the importance of getting it done ASAP. So then, I start feeling pressured to get the work done or else other teams will start criticizing our team when the work starts piling up later in the day. There was even a day where I skipped lunch just to make sure I clear all the work before our cutoff time at 3 PM. Unfortunately, I feel like I’M the only one in my team who feels pressured this way.ಠ╭╮ಥ I really wish my teammates would put more effort in our work.

And there you have it! Family, School, Work… That’s what’s pretty much keeping me busy lately. I guess this is what people usually mean when they’re ‘busy with life‘. Even if I’m busy, I’m still going to try my best to not neglect what’s important to me because I remember regretting doing so in the past. Never forget!


Visitors from Sacramento

I don’t know why but it feels like forever since I’ve written on here even though it’s been less than a week. This past week has been a long week. I’m not too sure why, maybe it’s because so much has happened? It’s weird how time flies when you’re having fun but a week/year/day goes by slower when things are eventful. Well.. that’s something to sit and think about lol.

So my friends from Sacramento came to visit us. Well, they actually flew up here to see the Eclipse but spent only the eclipse day in Oregon and the rest they spent up here in Washington with us! I love having guests, but sometimes when something is unplanned for, I can’t take days off. This past Saturday I took them around downtown Seattle. We went to get Chowder and took the bus up to Capitol Hill to find Bruce Lee’s grave. I might be a local but I’ve actually never been to Bruce Lee’s grave before. I the general area where it’s at but I didn’t know exactly where it was located so our trip there became a pretty long hike. Not that that was a problem though since the neighborhood in the area is pretty dam nice. Sadly, by the time we made it to the main entrance of the cemetery there was a sign saying that it’s closed until next week. What an anticlimatic moment lol.

highlight of my weekend

After the hike to Bruce Lee’s grave (that we didn’t even get to see), I took them to Capitol Hill and we had some Molly Moon Ice Cream. I got a double scoop this time because I wanted 2 flavors, Stumptown Coffee & Lavender. Both flavors were A M A Z I N G! I’ve always loved their Lavender flavor but this is my first time trying the Stumptown Coffee one and I LOVE IT.

Other places I also took my friends to eat at are Coco 2.0, Oasis Bubble Tea, Looking for Chai and Isarn Thai Soul Kitchen. The nice thing is, they treated me for the most outing so it’s nice not having to spend the extra cash since I’m literally super broke right now lol.

Now that they went home it’s time to sterilize my room and get it ultraclean again. =3= I’m such a germaphobe lol. I might be messy but I absolutely can’t stand dirtiness. (know the difference D:<)


Greetings August

Happy August! July this year was actually pretty eventful. I already have a few things planned out as we move into August, so I sure hope it’s even more eventful than July!

I finished off my July by finally cleaning my room & bathroom. I was actually exhausted from work and just wanted to relax but…. I just couldn’t feel relaxed in my messy room so I suck it up and clean all the tea mugs from my bedroom, and clean the counter top for the bathroom. IT FEELS SO NICE WHEN EVERYTHING IS CLEAN.

Inspired by the lovely sugarcoatedkiss, I decided to start a bullet journal. I’ve looked at a few bullet journals online, and it reminds me a lot like what I used to do for my work/school planner. So I’m thinking of ditching my work planner and just use my bullet journal instead. I’m using a Moleskine knockoff notebook I got from Daiso ($1.50) and you know what, the quality isn’t so bad haha. The only downside is that the notebook is fairly thin so I doubt I’ll be able to fit the rest of my year in here. I want to see how Bullet Journaling works out for me first before investing in a more pricey notebook. I really hope this work out though, because it looks like a lot of fun to look back to!

Probably will add more stickers to the cover to give it more life 🙂

Today has been a fairly slow day at work. Our supervisor is out of office.. so one person in my team is taking advantage of that by afking from his desk for hours…(isn’t that a tad bit too much there young man?). Whatever, not my problem. At the end of the day, the numbers will reflect everything… we’ll see how long that can go on for.

I wasn’t so hungry during lunch today but I felt the need to get away from my computer desk… and I’m glad I did. I’ve been craving Bibimbap and guess what? The Bomba Fusion Food Truck was at Westlake Park today so I finally get to satisfy my Bibimbap cravings. If you’ve never tried Bibimbap before, I highly recommend it. It’s usually just sauteed veggies over rice but it’s AMAZING. I mean, you could also add meat on there, but I don’t think it’s needed 😀

I know I say this a lot but, I really want to try document my daily life more often ): things got really busy at work in the past 2 months so I didn’t have time to write much, but I sure hope once everyone new in the team is all crossed train, I’ll get some time to breath and write more. “Why can’t you just write at home?” LMAO good point, I just like writing at work because it’s a good way to kill time >.> ye, I know I’m bad.


Hard To Say

I haven’t written an update on my life for awhile. So many backlogs from May & June that I really don’t feel like finishing because it’s just too painful to even think about what I was trying to say in them. I don’t even know what the point of this post is but oh well, just wing it: Hondai style.

Honestly, my mood recently has been in it’s ups and down. I’ve been meeting great people, finding a new part of me, while rediscovering a part of myself that I love. But every time I hit a high of happiness, something blocks me from believing that I am truly happy. Then again, what is true happiness even? Is it something I get when I find my dream job? When the person I’ve given up so much for finally returns the favor? When I’m finally free from any emotional obligations? Even god doesn’t know. Someone told me that “happiness is something you choose“.. if this is the case then does that mean I am constantly choosing to be unhappy? I think I’m just going to do what makes me happy right now.

I think I found a little place where I don’t have to worry about my stupid little problems. I’m going to cherish it as long as I can.
