I've been trying to eat healthier this week because I have to go for some blood work tomorrow, but you know, I got some snacks for after, a.k.a. an oasis in a desert of salads and steamed vegetables... (Also, notice how I got Ruffles this time and not just Doritos or kettle chips? QUEEN OF VARIETY RIGHT HERE.)

BTS EPISODE: Agust D "대취타 (Daechwita)" MV Shooting Sketch

on

Aside from the utter hilarity that Jinkook brings to the set (I swear, they are the most chaotic pair in BTS), the new Agust D storyline is epic — I really hope they release a second MV for D-2 (they usually release two MVs for solo mixtapes) and we get to see what happens to the tyrant king. Is he dead? Does he survive? Will he get his revenge? Will there be a final showdown? Does present-day Agust D ascend the throne? Will there even be a throne? THIS IS A WHOLE ASS K-DRAMA AND I AM LIVING FOR IT.

BTS V LIVE [RM + Jin]: RJRJ + Eat Jin

on


Not only do we get an Arts & Crafts with BTS today (scratch off illustrations!), we also get an episode of Eat Jin! It's made me realize that despite having eaten tons of goo lo yuk and zhajiangmein growing up, I have never had tangsuyuk or a decent bowl of jajangmyeon — basically their Korean counterparts — and now I'm on a mission to find them here.

A delightful after-work (social-distanced) treat with my friend Katherine to celebrate another long weekend (I start working Tuesday to Saturday next week, so I have this coming Monday off), the passing of my 90-day probation at work (which is why I start working from home next week), the end of having to wake up at 5:00AM for work (aside from starting WFH on Tuesday, I also start my 4-midnight shifts), and the closing of my new condo (which I've waited 5 years for, and why I had to meet up with Katherine today — aside from being my oldest friend, she's also my real estate lawyer). And no, that's not pee, that's a nice, refreshing iced peach green tea from OneZo. It was 28°C out today and for some reason, that always makes me want cold, fruity tea. Happy Fri-yay!

Friday Five: Grace

on
This week's Friday Five:
  1. When most recently did someone show you unexpected courtesy? At work, I was on a call that ran late and one of my co-workers stayed behind just to help me bring all my work from home equipment to my car.

  2. What were you most recently forgiven for? Honestly, I don't remember. I haven't really done anything recently that I had to be forgiven for.

  3. What did someone most recently buy for you? My friend Katherine bought me a bubble tea today!

  4. What did someone most recently make for you? Hmm... my mom made dinner for me last night, does that count?

  5. Who could you probably be a bit nicer to? My mom.

Casually flexing his new mixtape while painting in a cute little apron. Like he didn't just drop a career-changing album. It's the Min Yoongi way.

Glitter, glitter, look at my crown, glitter
Remember, remember, days gone by, remember
We so fly, we so fly, private jet, we so fly
Yeah, uh, born a slave but now a king
Berserk tiger Gwanghae flow
Born in a ditch but rise up a dragon
That's the way I live
Sorry, but don’t worry
I got lots to lose
Shove the past into a rice chest
I'm about to dine on what I know is mine
Shut up, yeah, you calling me a pup, yeah
I was born a tiger, I ain't no weak pill-popper like you
Pathetic fucks putting on a talent show
Not gonna lie, what a shit-show
I got no pretensions, just kill ’em all
Ain't no exceptions, I watch you fall
Flexing, I got none
I don't need one
Who's the king, who's the boss
You all know my name
All shit-talk, they got no game
Off with their heads

Hit this town then cut and run in a jet
This country's too small to hold me in yet
Woo, who says time is money
My time is worth more than that
Tic tok, got a stick up your ass
I'm about to spit in your face
Revenues keep going up, up, up, up, up, up, and up
Everyday, Bang PD keeps dancing on, on, on, on, on, on, and on
I'm so thankful I’m a genius
That’s your excuse for popping pills, cry me a river you just got no skills
I got everything I wanted, what more will make me feel contented
I wanted clothes, clothes, then money, money, then goal, goal, now what’s next
Yeah, what's next, here comes my reality check, there's nowhere higher
I only looked up and now I want to look down and put my feet on the ground
I'm a king, I’m a boss
Remember my name
All shit-talk, they got no game
Off with their heads
I'm a king, I'm a boss
You all know my name
All shit-talk, they got no game
Off with their heads

BTS Jimin and Jungkook Fan Art Postcard Prints

BTS Jimin and Jungkook Fan Art Photo Card Prints

Came home to a lovely surprise in the mail from my ARMY friend Maegan in Winnipeg! We've both been kinda sad and gloomy because BTS has postponed their tour and are no longer coming here at the end of May — which means that we're also postponing our meeting for the first time — so she decided to buy me with some beautiful Jungkook and Jimin fan art prints to cheer me up . 🥺🥺🥺 This was, without a doubt, the highlight of my week.

Not gonna lie, having to wake up at 5:00AM after a long weekend really fucking sucks, but the sunrise this morning was so pretty that it almost made up for only getting two hours of sleep. (But T-minus 7 days until I start working 4:00PM to midnight! Everyone else hates this shift, but my nocturnal self is celebrating.)

Makeup and Beauty Blog: Monday Poll, Vol. 627

on
Monday, May 18, 2020
This week's Monday Poll:
  1. When do you usually eat dinner? Currently, from Monday to Friday (when I have work), I eat around 5:30PM. On the weekends, usually around 7:30PM.

  2. Denim overalls or a denim dress? Um... I guess I'll go with overalls, but frankly, I don't wear either.

  3. Stick foundation or powder foundation? Powder foundation.

  4. What's keeping you going these days? BTS, coffee, and cigarettes.

  5. How would you fare if you had to watch a llama at your place for two weeks? Terribly because I don't have a fenced in yard but also because I work 40 hours a week and wouldn't be able to take care of him/her for most of the day. It's the same reason I don't have a dog even though I really want one.

  6. What does your perfect brow look like? Naturally full and somewhat fluffy, with a slight arch. Not thin, not too blocky, not too carved out, not too dense. SIGH. I can only dream.

  7. Vintage or modern? Depends on what it is, but I'd typically go for modern.

  8. Contacts or glasses? Contacts. I don't find glasses particularly comfortable. Plus, my eyesight is just bad enough that the peripherals are distorted when I wear them. Quite frankly, the only reason I take out my contacts is that they start to get dry after 14 hours.

  9. Oatmeal or waffles? Waffles, always and forever. Oatmeal is gross. Unless it's in cookies.

  10. Spring or summer? Spring. The only real bad thing about spring is allergies. I otherwise quite like it. The temperature is nice, the scenery is nice, everything starts blooming, you can still layer clothes and feel comfortable. It's my second favourite season.

It's raining today, which means comfort food, which means noodle soup. Thus, dinner tonight was rice noodles with wontons, fish cakes, Chinese broccoli, regular broccoli, and a hard-boiled egg. Much-needed regular food as the McDonald's I had yesterday felt like a rock in my stomach for hours. I forgot just how many preservatives are in their food. Like, McDonald's, you are so gloriously delicious, but why you gotta do me dirty like that?

I was watching Yuka Kinoshita eating McDonald's this morning so, obviously, I started craving McDonald's until it was all I could think about. I had an ultra-healthy salad for lunch just so I could get a Filet-O-Fish combo and a McDouble for dinner, and even though I'll probably regret it in like, an hour, eating it was so fucking glorious. (Also, I don't know if it's because I eat McDonald's like, twice a year, and I haven't had it in so long, but every single combo meal is now over $9! When the hell did McDonald's get so expensive?)
