Two days after my birthday, I was laid off from work. No notice or anything, just a phone call from my boss at 10 am letting me know that the industry is down, our company isn’t bringing in enough money to keep all of our staff and even though I’m one of the best staffers in our department, I was chosen to be let go. She wanted me to know that it wasn’t a performance-based decision, but a financial one. The layoff was immediate and I have two weeks to send my work equipment back to our corporate offices. Tomorrow it’ll be a full week of my being unemployed and even though I’m still reeling from the abrupt nature of my layoff, I’m okay. I pouted for two days, and then I got to work.
I started the process of filing for unemployment (which isn’t really getting me anywhere, gah), I updated my resume, and I took a look at job openings in my area. I compared stay-at-home work with on-site work and looked at what each job and company is offering salary-wise and got a little discouraged because to make what I have grown accustomed to making, I’ll need to get two jobs. But with the help and guidance of some fantastic friends, I have a plan of action in place that will start after the Thanksgiving holiday. That plan of action includes figuring out my own financial situation and calculating how long I have before I’m in dire straits. Fortunately for me, I’m not in dire straits and I won’t need to rush into anything super quick.
I’m going to go home to L.A., spend a week with my Dad, hang out with my family, stream BTS, and then when I get back, I’m going to figure everything else out. I don’t normally talk about my personal life but I needed to get that out so that I can move forward, you know? Anyway, as thrown as I was this week, I still managed to watch all of my dramas…aiain’t nothing coming in between me and my dramas, I guess. Haha.
Now, let’s get into all of the things that I watched last week…
What I Watched
Weak Hero Class 1 | 5 out of 5
I watched this entire show in one sitting. I was that engrossed in everything going on and even though there was a lot of darkness and a lot of shit that pissed me off and frustrated the hell out of me, I really enjoyed this one. I was gripped from beginning to end and I cannot wait for the next season.
Love is for Suckers: I watched the first episode of this week’s two and it’s another week of disappointment on my end, I guess I’m just not very forgiving of stupidity and fucking with peoples lives and after the way that episode 11 ended, I’m just…throwing in the towel on this one. I don’t even care about anything anymore. On to the next…
May I Help You?: So far, this is my favorite show that is active right now. I enjoy this drama so much that I have re-watched the previous episodes multiple times before starting the new episodes. This drama is my jam. So much goodness. Lee Hyeri and Lee Jun Young are such a charming pair and after each episode, I have the cheesiest smile which makes my week. This week’s episodes were no exception. I love love love this show.
Behind Every Star: Hmm, this show is still interesting to me but it’s not without its faults. I thought I’d be a lot more interested in the actors and the different situations at the office but aside from a few of the employees and like one actor, I’m not that interested in everything else. I’ll keep with it for the time being and see if it picks up at all. Fingers crossed.
Revenge of Others: This show is a lot darker than I was expecting. Watching it makes me worry about the kids in Korea because holy shit, the amount of dramas that I’m watching with horrible bullying in the schools is something else. This show may be dark but man is it interesting. Every episode, I’m surprised at how violent and dark this show is but I can’t stop watching so this show ain’t going nowhere on my weekly watch list.
The First Responders: I’m liking this show. I like every one of the mains, especially the cop. He’s fun. It’s a lot of fun watching them figure shit out, fight the good fight, and then clown each other. This is a great addition to my weekly watch lists.
Reborn Rich: Hooked. I am hooked after only watching two episodes. I am looking forward to where the revenge plot takes us because right now, Hyun Woo is me. I am Hyun Woo.
Fan Letter, Please: If this isn’t the cutest show right now, I don’t know what is. I absolutely love these kinds of shows and I’m already a huge fan of the daughter, the Dad, and the actress. I cannot wait to see where the rest of this show takes us. So far, this show is such a delight.
