Hey guys! First of all, I want to greet all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! It has been a tough year, and now, we are finally closing in on the end of 2020. This was supposed to be a 2020 recap, but since there’s nothing much happens this year, I will just update you on my life lately. Tbh, I miss writing this kind of entry where I can just sit down, relax and talk to you like we’re friends having coffee.
I just finished watching the FRIENDS series!
FRIENDS is indeed a classic TV series. No wonder it was a huge hit! The series is about 6 friends living in New York where they have to navigate their way through life. There’s so many jokes, so much body comedy, so many surprises, and awwws. I used to watch 1 or 2 episodes every night before I sleep, then slowly got hooked after finishing 1 season. There were days where I watch the series all day! I love all the characters even though Rachel Green can be annoying sometimes. I can relate to her character! Monica Geller is also me sometimes! Phoebe Buffay’s weird character makes her very unique. I thought he would end up with Joey, but I’m happy that she is with Mike! The three guys are funny without even trying! Joey’s charm is irresistible, and he is a true friend to count on. Chandler never fails to make me laugh, and of course, Ross! David Schwimmer is such a good comedian!
It makes me sad that I am done with the series, and I have nothing to look forward to anymore. I will probably rewatch it again! I would recommend this show to anyone because of how relatable it is. The actors are amazing at what they do, and it never gets boring. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should check it on Netflix.
My first book was released.
Publishing a book is my number 1 dream. When I was in high school, I used to write poems, short stories, and novels, hoping that they will be published in time. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to recover the files on my old laptop. I also stopped writing stories in college and just focused on writing on my personal blog. I’m happy that people can read my works online.
Last October, Ukiyoto Publishing offered to convert my blog into a paperback book. I was shocked because I never thought that this dream could come to life! You may think that this is just a book version of what I have written on the web, but it’s more than that. It’s a dream.. that made into reality, thanks to the people who helped me in this journey. There are also exclusive content here that you cannot find on my blog or elsewhere.
So, I hope you enjoy reading my stories, and I hope you will support this new chapter in my life as a published author. Here are the links where you can buy my book:

I got another piercing.
It wasn’t too long ago when I had my lobe gun pierced. I loved it at first, but it’s taken a LONG time to heal, and my aftercare experience was not good. So before Christmas, I decided to get a triple lobe and helix piercing in a traditional way. The overall experience was good! I thought the helix piercing would be painful, but thankfully it’s not that much. I will get my right ear also pieced when my helix piercing gets fully healed.
And that’s it for my life lately! 2020 hasn’t been what any of us have planned at all. Regardless of what this year has brought us, we’re still choosing to celebrate and love during this time. Let’s reflect on our gratitude for the past and our hopes for the future. Cheers to health, happiness, and prosperity in 2021!
