Days of Spring!

It’s April and I’m happy!

I’m happy for no particular reason. OK, maybe my good mood was triggered by the lovely weather we are having, my stitching projects, the fact that I am on the morning shift at work (and I’ll be on it for the next 2 months as well!), and by many others.

Don’t worry, life is not that perfect for me and John but it certain has some good things in it.

This is my only free day for this week. I plan on taking advantage of it. Besides the cleaning, washing and even a little blogging I intend on stitching some more and just chill.

I finished my needlepoint poinsettia from Krif. I was really happy with this project because it was small and very easy to stitch. And, I made a resolution to myself to buy smaller projects that I can finish before I get bored of them.

I did a little shopping for more needlepoint projects, but I started a medium one. In fact, last week I had a stitch-a-ton. I am almost done with the black floss (which has become really boring) but I am happy of the way I advanced on it.

Needlepoint Project

Oh well, I think I shall blog more next week. Until then I’m off into my stitching world. After all, we have to take advantage of the lovely sun.

I am tired!

I am tired of everything and almost everyone around me, including myself!

I am tired of my daily routine.

*feeling annoyed*

How to keep willing hands active

Just give them a new stitching project.

Just two weeks and I’m almost half way through. I actually missed stitching and truthfully I wasn’t in the mood to stitch on the old projects. This is a smaller model and it’s very easy to stitch and follow the pattern. I managed to see 2 series of The Amazing World of Gumball and 4 series of Adventure Time. I guess my brain really needed some time out from daily life.

I’ve not been idle

Sorting out my mail, music, photos and my life. And yet, our room is still messy, I’m still lazy and I still don’t have things up to date.

Still, I’ve taken more photos, played more with the photography apps on my phone, I’ve went out with friends and with Johnny, and just took things easy. I am feeling much better than I was a week before.

I do believe the nice weather we’ve been having lately has improved my morale. Also, Marlanu’ has helped a lot. He’s been more affectionate lately and I do love what a good subject he is when it comes to random photograph

Sunmi – Full Moon

With no chance of the Wonder Girls making a comeback anytime soon, I guess I should be grateful for solo activities. Sunmi just made her comeback with a new album “24 Hours”. Her comeback song “Full Moon”.

For the first time I like a song more than I like the video. It’s very different from her last song, but it’s still as good as “24 Hours”. I also like the fact they kept the barefoot thing. Somehow, I find that Sunmi voice changed from her Wonder Girls days. I guess that has something to do with the change in her singing style.

Snowy winter

Since the beginning of the year I felt like an old lady. I don’t think my mind left anything untouched. I’ve been worrying about turning 27 this year and the fact that I’ve done absolutely nothing worthy with my life. I just freaked out! 3 more years and I will be 30. Where did the years go?

The voice in my mind went crazy and just won’t stop. I can’t make it stop. This voice keeps pointing out all my flaws and makes me feel like I am the worst of them all. I don’t know if this is really because I’m just acting silly for getting older, or because I miss the sunny days of spring and summer, or that I really am such a bad person.

I really wish I would stop the whole “comparing myself with others” thing. But I just can’t stop. I really hate the women that at 6 AM are out looking picture perfect with their make up applied perfectly and dressed to impressed, with no mud stains on their shoes while I look like I just crawled out of bed with pillow marks on my face and my boots dirty from walking 10 minutes in the muddy snow till the subway. How do they do it? Why do they do it? Does it matter so much? Why do I care so much about this? Why do I suddenly want to wear skirts and dresses to work? Why do I want to have perfect skin and a body to kill for? Why do I have to be picture perfect?

Why the urgent need to change?

I really hope spring will come sooner because I need more sunshine and more walks in the park to clear my mind from all of the negative thoughts I have.

Marlanu’ overload

This cat has more pictures than I have, and he’s only 2 years old. I don’t even think my kids will have so many pictures. Heck, I think I’m over compensating for the fact I don’t have any picture of Snoopy (the dog we had to give away). But I can’t help it, he’s my fuzzball.

Song Ji-Eun(송지은 of Secret)_ Going Crazy

Sometimes I think I should expand my kpop list of artists. I’ve recently started randomly browsing YouTube for music and of course I got stuck on kpop. Somehow, I avoided Girls Generation, Wonder Girls, T-ara and any other group that I’m already familiar with.

I ended up with Sistar, Secret, K-Will, Nine Muses and other groups. Kpop is much bigger than I thought and there are a lot of underrated artists that have awesome songs.
