Happy Holidays, Everyone!
I hope that everyone had a good holiday season and I hope that 2023 is good to all of us. 2022 proved to be for humbling my ass and teaching me some lessons that I didn’t know I needed to learn. I’m taking those lessons into the new year with me because being unemployed has really impacted me and the confidence I thought I had. It’s been a rough couple of months mentally and going back home was the reset that I needed.
I’ve been in my head too much and there is nobody in this world that could get me out of my head and laughing like there is no tomorrow than my family. I went to Disneyland for the first time in years, I got my first pair of Minnie Mouse ears and I spent time with my Dad. I had an Aunties date with Caiden, Rocky, and Lasi and it was such a good time that I’m still smiling over our conversations from that day. My holidays were good but I’m glad to be home.
Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…
What I Watched
I watched both of these shows with my family, and we binge-watched the hell out of them both. The first one had me shook and at the edge of my seat with each passing episode and the second made me cry. I’m glad that I watched both shows and I can’t wait for the second season of The Glory. March needs to get here…now!
May I Help You?: The last few episodes of this drama weren’t my favorite and I spent a lot of the time distracted while watching them but that doesn’t take to much away from how much I enjoyed this drama as a whole. This was my kind of drama and I am going to miss these characters, especially Kim Tae Hee and Baek Dong Joo but also Uncle Vincent and Uncle Michael. There was lots to love about this one and I am really glad that I watched it.
Reborn Rich: This show wasn’t the perfect show that I was expecting but it was compelling as hell and the characters were interesting, even if I didn’t like more than half of them. I’m glad that I let my favorite IG influencers influence me to give this one a go. It was a good, solid drama.
Summer Strike: This show started slow and I thought for sure I was going to drop it but I’m glad that I didn’t. It progressed nicely each week and ended on such a sweet note that it made me happy and I will definitely miss my friends.
Alchemy of Souls 2: Shit is poppin’ off in the Alchemy of Souls universe and I.AM.HERE.FOR.IT. Jang Uk! I need you to get it together and recognize what is right in front of your face!! AHHHH!!
The Forbidden Marriage: I really like this drama. It’s got the right mix of lightness fun and depth that I’m enjoying heaps. I am loving all of the main leads and am rooting for them all…how I can root for them, I have no idea..but I am. lol.
Unlock my Boss: I’m still enjoying this one as well. Not as much as some of the other shows that I watched last year and this isn’t my favorite show with Chae Jong Hyeop but I’m sure things will keep picking up.
The Interest of Love: I started this show in L.A. with my sister and niece last week but we only got around to watching the first episode…and that was an interesting one. I watched the second episode on my own and am definitely interested in seeing where this one goes. I can’t say that I’m completely hooked yet but there’s promise here.
