Happy Birthday, Meghan!
Happy Birthday to my ARMY bestie in California, haha. It’s so funny because Meghan is so fiercely independent and can’t be forced to do anything. She’s always been like that ever since she was a kid so it makes me so happy that when I forced her to watch BTS videos with me when she was staying at my house, she became curious about them and went home and fell in love with them on her own. She is my K-Pop buddy because we are both in the middle of falling in love with Seventeen and I love having someone that I can share everything under the sun about Seventeen AND BTS with.
It’s been an eventful week for me because your girl is employed again and I start next week Monday so I’m pretty excited and stoked to finally get caught up on my bills again. I blew through my savings trying to survive the last few months while I searched for a job and the Unemployment office for California can suck a fat one. I’m STILL going back and forth with them about my damn claim and seriously, whoever tried to open a claim using my social can suck an even bigger one and I hope that they never see the cool side of a pillow ever again. Warm and hot pillows forever!
Brenna, Lasi, and Baby Lata’ema
Also, I forgot to tell you guys last week but dude, I have another baby to spoil! My niece Chach and her husband Isaiah had their baby girl last week and her name is Lata’ema! She’s a big girl, way bigger than her Mom was when she was born but outside of that, she is the exact replica of her mother. Such a cutie patootie baby and I cannot wait to meet her. Fingers crossed that I’ll get to meet her next week. Wish me luck!
Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…
What I Watched
Traveler, Season 1 | 4 out of 5
The Glory, Season 2 | 4.5 out of 5
I binged both of these shows this week and they were both great. I enjoyed The Glory, Pt. 2 more because holy shit that show ended the way that I wand it to end and I’m hella wondering if we’re going to get another season…and even though I’m not normally a fan of extending a show longer than the 16 episodes, I’m low key hoping for another season of this show so that we can get some revenge for my guy Yeo Jung. Fingers crossed.
Our Blooming Youth: There’s a lot going on and it’s a little hard to follow everything but I will say that despite that, I’m still enjoying it. My favorite thing about the show right now is seeing our main leads become closer and closer with each other. He’s so smitten but still very aware of her feelings for her ex-fiance but she is super soft for him too and I’m enjoying seeing their slow burn romance come together. I am also curious about where all of the mystery and drama goes and man, once the second lead finds out the truth about the female lead, it’s gonna be crazy and I know that my heart is going to hurt for him because boy, your best friend stole your girl.
Jinny’s Kitchen: I’m not sure that I could explain why I’m enjoying this show so much because it’s more than just seeing V and Park Seo Joon every week, cause really all they’re doing is making ramen, corn dogs, and sauces followed by V and Wooshik washing all the dishes. I don’t know what crack is in this show but I’m enjoying it. I like the break it gives me from all of the heavier dramas that I’m watching. The ARMY that left Taehyung a note in this week’s episode was too cute. She’s a real ARMY too because we didn’t hear one thing about his trip to Mexico and she didn’t bother him while he was working, her entire interaction with him was hers and her alone. Cute! Jinny’s Kitchen Wooshik is giving me major In the Soop Seokjin vibes. The way the both of them wake up cracks me up.
Taxi Driver 2: This week’s episodes (even though they were split up) were much more interesting to me than the last country bumpkins episodes were. Man, my heart hurt for the kids and seeing how determined Kim Do Ki was to find them and protect them from that punk bastard Mr. Kang put my heart back together again. I’m glad that we got the original writer back because the episodes are much more interesting again and I’m glad. I see that Metal Balls is going to piss me off in this show too. Grrr. I’m mighty curious about who the hell he is though.
The Heavenly Idol: How much longer is Yeon Woo going to act like an idiot? I think this show is too silly for me. I’m interested one episode and then the next, I want to spank Yeon Woo (or I guess it’s Rembrary) and call it quits. But even with all of my gripes, I can’t stop watching it. I am getting soft for all of the members of Wild Animal so I’ll stick it out for them and to see Rembrary get his shit together.
Delivery Man: The first two episodes of this drama set up the tone for the rest of the show and I’m curious enough to keep going. I really liked the first two episodes even though the female lead was annoying as shit in the first one. I’m curious what other cases we’ll be working on during the course this show and how many different ghosts we’re going to meet. This show reminds me of May I Help You with its own unique spin so I’m curious about how the mystery behind his Mom’s accident will unfold.
