I don't even know where to begin! 2022 has been one big roller coaster ride for me. It started on a high note because I bought Deep Purple’s Burn (1974) on CD at Hungry Ear Records in early January. Then, I had to leave it and all my other CDs behind in mid-March because I... Continue Reading →
What a Rush! (Florida Trip from 3/10/22 to 3/15/22)
On Wednesday, March 9, 2022, I left for Florida at around 10:48 p.m. The first flight was about five hours, so I watched two movies, Ratatouille (2007) and Couples Retreat (2009). We had a layover in Los Angeles and that flight was about four hours. However, our gate was delayed due to bad weather, so... Continue Reading →
Reflections on the Year 2021
It’s that time again, where I reflect on this past year and honestly, 2021 was a lot better than 2020! I mean, how could it not be? I bought a lot more CDs to add to my CD collection, I graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, I’m on my third writing internship (which... Continue Reading →
I Was Supposed to See Harry Styles in Concert, But Now I Can’t!
After refunding my Def Leppard concert tickets for summer 2020, I decided to purchase new concert tickets for a band that my 13-year-old self never got to see live...One Direction! Well, at least part of One Direction. On June 19, 2020, I purchased two tickets to see Harry Styles at the MGM Grand Garden Arena... Continue Reading →
YouTube Is An Addiction…Please Help Me!
You can say this is a sequel to my previous post titled, Is YouTube a Distraction or a Lifestyle? That post was from March 6, 2020 (pre-COVID) and I thought it’d be good to do an update on how I feel about that argument. After all, I’ve been stuck mostly at home for the past... Continue Reading →
Thoughts on My Last Semester of College
Final grades for the University of Hawaii at Manoa were posted on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, which means I am officially a college graduate for the class of spring 2021! How does it feel? I don’t feel that different, to be honest. Could it be because I didn’t participate in my university’s hybrid commencement ceremony?... Continue Reading →
Confessions of a One Direction Fangirl
Before any of you click away, being a One Direction fangirl isn't always rainbows and sunshine; mentally, it has messed me up pretty badly. Like most of my YouTube addictions, I watched interviews and performances of theirs whenever I had the chance. However, I was also comparing myself to the band members' girlfriends. Not that...

Reflections on the Year 2020
First of all, I know I had a collage for last year's post reflecting on 2019, but I didn't do that for 2020 because I didn't do much other than write on my blog, watch a lot of YouTube, and listen to bands such as Def Leppard, AC/DC, Metallica, and Iron Maiden. So nothing special, to be... Continue Reading →
I’m Finally 22, So What’s New?
On Monday, Nov. 30, I turned 22 years old, and no, I did not sing Taylor Swift's "22" that day. But it was a great day; I got to see my grandma, I had chicken katsu from L&L for lunch, two of my Amazon CDs came in, I had spring rolls and fried shrimp for... Continue Reading →
Ten Things I’m Thankful For
Thanksgiving is this Thursday, so I thought that now would be a good time to talk about ten things I'm thankful for in my life. 2020 has been a rough year, but showing gratitude for the positive things can improve one's mood in many ways. Some of these things are a bit weird, but please... Continue Reading →
