Hello, it’s me (…again)

Yep, another post. I didn’t like the taste of negativity that was left after I published my last post so here’s something lighter.

I have been waiting patiently for Pokemon Go and TBH it’s driving me mad! Actually, I was even considering hunting for a Game Boy Advanced SP or any other Game Boy model that can play the old cartridges. I have a Red Version that is sitting quietly in my desk drawing waiting for my return. It beckons…

You’d think that with all the comics that I’ve purchased from Comixology or the audiobooks from Audible that I’d have enough things to keep me occupied until Pokemon Go arrives. Well, I do have enough things to keep me occupied. The problem is, I just really gotta (Pokemon) Go and catch ’em all! (that was a really lame attempt at wit/humor and I apologize)

I recently bought a smaller powerbank (or what other people in the world call a “battery pack”) for days when I go to the mall and don’t need to lug around my 13,000mAh unit. It’s the size of a pack of Mentos gum (so handy!). But I’m pretty sure I’ll use my bigger one when I play Pokemon Go. HAHA.

The stock market’s been doing pretty good. I watched a documentary some time ago on YouTube about young rich kids (that actually earned their fortune as opposed to mooching off their parents) and one of them got rich by trading in the stock market. I don’t plan on trading full-time (since that a risk I’m not prepared for), but eventually when my profits are a good deal more than the amount I invested initially, I may play around a bit. Would becoming a full-time Pokemon trainer be possible if I got really good at trading stocks?? Hmmm… Important life question right there.

I feel like there are a lot of things I’ve forgotten to update you guys about. Like how I’ve ditched wearing jeans because OMG my waistline ballooned. My mom introduced me to the wonderful world of leggings/slacks (should they be called ‘sleggings’? ). They look like slacks, but they’re stretchy like leggings. I love them sooooo much. But they don’t really serve as motivators to get back into shape (my jeans motivated me to keep my belly in check by not being wearable after eating…).

Sometimes I’m tempted to use my YouTube channel to publish mini vlog entries, but then I remember that I don’t like showing my face and that I can’t go on random hiatuses like I can with this blog. HAH! Anyway, I think I’ve got the negativity out of my system now. Is Pokemon Go out where you live? Or are you waiting like I am? Leave a comment in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you. ๐Ÿ™‚


Working on my backlog…before I turn back into a log.

Hello interwebz! We’re nearing the half-way mark for 2015 and I’ve barely updated this blog. Sorry about that, self. Things have been pretty hectic at work that when I go home I basically turn into a log. I just lie on the bed all day and grow moss.

My relatives from the states (Georgia, Virginia, and Hawaii to be exact) visited last month. My mom had a ton of stuff on the itinerary for them (and us. And us. -_-). So between work and their visit, I was pretty much pooped all the time. But it was really great having them around. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m actually supposed to be uploading pictures from their trip, but I forgot that I also have other albums in my backlog so I’m stalling by updating this. LOL.

The past month has been really expensive. I racked up quite a credit card bill. I have to assess which of those transactions were mine though. Some were for the family (so they don’t count). I have a gut feeling that Uniqlo is the prime suspect. XD I bought so many lounge bottoms (shorts, 3/4, pants) that my closet looks like a Uniqlo extension. LOL. It kinda sucks that a lot of the designs are limited edition and won’t be coming back. So hoard away I do!

That’s enough stalling for now. I’ll try to make better posts (read: not word vomit) in the succeeding weeks. Toodles! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dress To Impress (Or not. Whatever. I’m not yo momma.)

I am currently listening to Mindy Kaling’s audiobook Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns), and I realized that she is in fact my spirit animal.

I want her level of confidence. I’m currently trying to build mine by power dressing. Starting with my shoes. I have now decommissioned my faithful Chucks and have replaced them with 5 pairs of shoes from Aerosoles. I know this may seem extreme (I mean, come on 5 pairs!), but if you know my shopping habits you’ll see that this is normal. Those 5 shoes are gonna last me for a couple of years.

I wore the pair with the shorter heels yesterday, and I felt totally boss. LOL. Today I’m wearing comfy flats. My mom and uncle were so relieved to see me wearing something other than my Chucks. Really? Was it really so bad? Anyhoo, I don’t plan on retiring my superhero shirts just coz of the girly shoes. They’re part of my power dressing. I guess you could say they’re essential to my superpower dressing. Ho ho ho! XD I slay myself.

That’s all for today. Go and check out Mindy’s audiobook!
