November’s Aims

October has ended, and with it the feeling of fall. The past few days have really felt like winter, and I am glad I am able to work from home instead of having to brave the brisk mornings. I studied Korean last month, and while I believe I studied more than I did in July…

October’s Objective

Just like last month, I have decided to return to a previous resolution. Even though July wasn’t that long ago, I want to focus more on studying Korean again. If I am being completely honest, I could have spent more time on studying than what I actually managed to accomplish that month. So I will…

September’s Plan

Still going strong with the resolutions for each month! I’ve decided to recycle an earlier one of mine since I fell out of touch with it a bit recently. In February, I decided that I would use social media less and read more. I believe I was successful, but I’ve fallen back into old habits…

August’s Aims

It’s already August, which means two things. One, it’s time for another resolution, and two, WHERE has the year gone?? To be quite frank, 2020 did not turn out at all as I was expecting, which I am sure we all experienced in one way or another. I was planning on traveling to 5 different…

June Review

In June, my resolution was to exercise every day, even if it was for just 10 minutes. Out of the whole month, there were only 3 days in which I did not exercise, and 2 were because I was not at home and was away visiting family. All in all, I think this month was…

July Mini Resolution

I am still going strong with finding a new resolution to do every month! And most of the time, I end up continuing that resolution after the month is up. For me, I suppose it works better when I set a goal for the near future, rather than a whole year. After I do it…

What’s Binge-worthy on Netflix?

I have never been so grateful to have Netflix at my fingertips. It’s been about 3 and a half months that I have been social distancing and staying at home. Some days are worse than others as far as boredom goes, but since I am still working 50 hours most weeks, I don’t have as…

Grief

Grief is not pretty, no matter how you experience it. It’s also never the same between two people, but I believe it is generally agreed upon that it never really goes away. When someone first dies, in a way you are honored. You get special treatment. People tip-toe around you, and your bosses give you…

Understanding White Privilege

As a white person, growing up in a mainly white neighborhood, I was never really aware of my own privilege until I went to university and read about different perspectives. Here are a few things I came to understand about myself: Because my name sounds caucasian, I am probably more likely to not have any…

June’s Intention

In continuation with a mini resolution each month, for June I have decided to exercise or do some sort of physical activity each day. It doesn’t have to be an intense, hour long workout, just something to get me active instead of melting into the couch while watching my 100th episode on Netflix that day….
