HAPPY 2018 MY LOVES!
The holiday season has come and gone and the most depressing day of the year is a mere 10 days away (January 15.. Blue Monday.. it’s a thing..). But, there’s no need to dread or focus on the negative because that way of thinking is sooooooo 2017.
Typically around the holiday season I get a little somber, especially since it’s my third year in a row away from my family. If I learned anything from the past few years is that you make your own happiness. I repeat: YOU MAKE YOUR OWN HAPPINESS! Instead of curling into a ball and hiding away, on Christmas Eve I headed to Seoul to be with my friend Annie and celebrate December 25th with red bean donuts, ice skating, and treating myself with skincare related prezzies. And of course, I vlogged it all for ya.
My New Years Eve was way less eventful. I bundled up at home in my thickest blanket, gathered my favorite junk foods (chicken burgers, french fries, popcorn, and chocolate ice cream), and had a solo Harry Potter movie marathon. It. Was. Ah-mazing. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is by far the best movie of them all.
I fell asleep around 11PM (lol, living the dream!) and woke up at 1:30AM from texts from my family in Canada wishing me a Happy New Year! Since I went to bed pretty early, I got up around 5:30AM to watch the sunrise at Dadaepo Beach. It’s a tradition in Korea to watch the first sunrise of the new year, and that’s exactly what I did.
Do you believe in the saying “new year, new me?”
I do. Sort of.
I’m not one to make resolutions but I do reflect on the past year and what I can do better, who I want to surround myself with, and goals I want to achieve this year.
The year 2018 will be full of MEGA changes.
I’ll be starting a whole new life, in a new country, and beginning a new chapter.
So in a sense 2018 will teeeeechnically be a new year.. new me.. right? Let’s roll with it.
Also, I wanted to let you know that I might not be posting a whole bunch within the next few months. My focus is shifting to other projects, which I will share with you very soon. Until then, I love ya long time. Let’s make this year the best ever.
