First off, I’m so sorry I’ve not been posting for a while but things got a little crazy the last few months but they’re settling down into a better pattern now so I’ll have more time for blogging.
So here’s a quick update on what’s been going on in some key areas of my life and I’ll follow-up on some of them with more detailed posts.
Work still gets crazy from time to time but then that is the nature of the job though I’m now down to 2 bosses (previously had 3) as my most junior boss has moved on to greener pastures (for him anyways).
Annual Free Vacay
At the end of August, my firm brought us to Bali for 3 days 2 nights. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt Bali located in Nusa Dua. It was absolutely lovely. Because of the sheer size of the resort, I hardly saw anyone from my firm unless it was during breakfast, on purpose or during our dinner and dance. We may have been there for a short time but I enjoyed myself and would love to go to Bali again but for a longer time. I’ll do a more detailed post later about the trip.
I previously mentioned that I had switched to Innisfree using mainly their Green Tea range, unfortunately my skin wasn’t too happy. I wasn’t breaking out in a rash or anything but I noticed that my face would go a little red after use and stay red for a bit though without an itch. Spoke to one of their representatives who suggested I change ranges as it seemed that I was having a mild allergic reaction to the Green Tea range. Luckily, Innisfree has a one month exchange program, so I was able to return all the Green Tea products for the new range. Detailed post to follow.
I stopped using my Filofax back in October and instead switched to system that’s based on the Midori Traveler’s Notebook aka MTN. I’ve found this set up to be way better for me and I also don’t have to worry about storing loose papers. This system has also helped me with my journalling and I’ll be setting up a second one for travels. Detailed post to follow.
I started and completed all three levels of my Intermediate Korean by the end of last year and started my Advance Level classes at the beginning of the year. I’ve actually already finished my first level and just started my second level which I should be done with in a few weeks. I’m hoping that my the end of the year I’ll even be done with my Master level classes. I’m also planning on going for an immersion course the school is offering. Detailed post to follow.
Scrapbooking & Creative Works
I’ve decided to give Project Life another go (failed twice already) but before I started, I had a good think about what could have been the possible causes for my previous failures and then came up with a new approach for it. So far it’s working for me and I’ve managed to stay up to date and hopefully I’ll be able to finish up the year. Thanks to my new love for journalling in my MTN, I’ve also decided to work on my art and drawing and came up with my own little art project for the year. Detailed posts to follow.
I’ll be heading to the US next month for a 4 week vacation staying with my bestie. Detailed post to follow.
