Hello! Just popping in to say nothing of substance. Yet again. I never thought to make “life lately” a series on this blog—because that’s what blogs are supposed to be like, right?—but I noticed that there are just some things that are hard to categorize. Lumping things that don’t make sense together, that’s my motto! No, it’s not, really. That’s a very bad thing to do. But for the sake of my own sanity, I welcome you to: Life Lately.
It’s been a while since my last update, which is essentially a preview of my January. I have been enjoying Project Life, but I find printing photos tedious. I think I get restless when I am “too” caught up and run out of things to do, so I’m trying to let it sit for a while and focus on other more important things… You know, like work. Real life interactions.
Anyway, I went to Hong Kong with my family for Art Basel! It’s an offshoot of the original, which is held in Basel, Switzerland, and is basically a huge-ass art fair. Imagine having just 6 hours to go through hundreds of booths. An impossible but exhilarating feat nonetheless. I shall regale you with my exploits in another post, probably.
We stayed with my cousin, Shirley, and her family, and celebrated my dad’s 55th (!) birthday there. Although I have been to Hong Kong a few times, I’m still not sure if I like it or not. I think it can be fun to visit—most people go there to shop, but there are tons of other things to do—but I’m not sure if I want or can afford to live there. I really enjoyed spending time with my nephew, Ethan, though. They’ve lived in Hong Kong and Vietnam, so I haven’t seen him as often as I see my other nieces and nephews, but it was so fun, because he’s been talking a lot lately!
Life’s been slow on the work front, though. I’m getting my bearings but can’t quite do that so well because I mysteriously had trips lined up one after the other. Totally by accident and definitely out of the ordinary. I wish I could effortlessly settle down after a trip and just get into the meat of things. Alas.
I think it has to do with my mess of a room + studio space, though. I’ve had “clean room” and “clean studio” on my list since even before 2015 started, but I keep stopping midway because of my shitty attention span. I must get on this, stat.
I’ve finished 2 books this month, one I’m in love with and one I’m ambivalent about. I’m in the middle of way too many books, though, if that’s possible.
In other news:
I had a BMI analysis because my cousin’s super swanky digs had a machine, and WOW. How depressing. I haven’t crossed over to obesity~ just yet, but my stats are obviously unhealthy, with an excess in fat. As if I didn’t already know! But it’s better to know than to live in the dark. I just want to make healthier choices, because I am a literal child when it comes to picking between salad and fast food. Chocolate always wins. But I’m a little bit more motivated now that I can actually see the numbers. Also, watching Total Divas on E! helps a lot.
Also, my about page makes me LOL. Time to put a revision on my to-do list!
