Ah! It’s so refreshing to have a book you’re enjoying in hand and nice warm weather. Let’s not forget some nice peace and quiet 😜 

I forgot what it felt like to sit in absolute silence with a novel in hand and some much needed sun. Thankfully it was sunny today and I have been reading a novel (been a while with it being winter and all) ; it felt so nice to just be nice and warm without wearing layers and read something I’m enjoying. 

I don’t count my textbooks in this though, I use those practically everyday of my life 😉💜 which I am so proud of! Even when I am super sick like today 😷 

Mentioning textbooks, and today, I was studying Japanese today and just wrote totally random Korean in my Evernote App ….and surprisingly I had the urge to actually re-type in Japanese. As shocked as I was that I actually knew what to type somewhat (broken but legible to my newbie eyes)  I’m probably wrong though 😉 

And being home alone the random notes in Korean in my App will increase, since I’m afraid of being alone with my sister despite the Rapid Response Alarm being on. I’ll probably keep reading too, if I can manage the mental effort at 2am in the morning 😩😔  that or late night cleaning? 

Point of post? It’s just nice to have a good book and some sun. I don’t have to be feeling to good but those two as a combo is amazing. 

Life is books 💜📚 

I think it’s true. The older we get, the harder life becomes….we develop a more keen sense of responsibility.

We understand that we need to do more, but at the same time are conflicted with emotions of feeling like we don’t know how to do more~!!

I know what I need to do, what has to be done, and I’m doing it, but at the same time I sometimes feel like maybe I don’t have it in me.

Like the two things are separate : What I want and what I can do.

That’s not true, it’s just my mind making me believe that.

I can do it, all of it, I just have to tell myself that fact, and everything will be alright.

The mind is a very powerful thing : but use the power to instill positive thoughts and behaviour, not negative ^^

We get that right things would be a lot easier.

When I got my NEW Circle Lenses from DHL I was super excited to try them out (~think hyper jumping and wondering how the hell I’m going to look with PINK eyes xP) ^^

They colour is amazing, but surprisingly in natural light (outdoors with the sun) it blends with my skin colour and looks freakishly natural! ツ

So I’m going to tell you my crazy experience trying to put them in my eyes ツ

Believe me it was funnay 😛

So my experience was this : Picked up my package from DHL – only took 6 days from date of order till I had them in my hands, and it was so embarassing but the person at the Collections desk asked me “I spoke to you over the phone, what’s in the package that you’re so excited and happy when I said it was available”  I did NOT know what to say so /sheepishly giggle lmao

Got home, ripped the baggy open, and stared at the vile for about ~maybe twenty minutes while I was waiting for my Mum to be done in the garden (she was tending to her plant children lol) ^^ I was so hyper looking at them but I had no idea how long it would take to get them into my eye at this point.

It’s the first time I’ve ever used any kind of lens so this experience was totally new and foreign to me, albeit exciting till new and foreign. And I was glad I had my “real life” tutorial maker in my mum since she used to wear contacts ツ

The hardest and most important step : Putting the lens in ツ

Obviously putting the lens in is the most important step — I mean you got to wear what you bought! But, everyone forgot to tell me it’s seriously hard to put something so thin and slippery into your eye D: but after my mother showed me how to put them in, I realized and of course my Mum told me that it’s not something that can be taught exactly, you just have to keep trying till you get it ^^

Now — that took me about 20+ minutes. At first I started with my left eye and it was so difficult, I kept blinking every time I saw my finger getting closer to my eye (fear I guess hehe) – and then my sister held my eye open and I still blinked continuously (: which irritated her so much, her with her short temper “KAY STOP BLINKING ..GEEZ”   but we handled it well, with her leaving me and telling me to do it on my own, and I did that.

Worked out well eventually — when I gave up on my left eye I took a little break (~5 minutes) then tried on my right eye, and it was only 3-5 tries and I got it in — but something really odd happened, my eye started to water continuously, literally it’s like I was crying and had no control over it in just the one eye, I didn’t panic about that because it was just about 2 minutes (even less) and I thought it was just because my eyes don’t know what in heavens name I’ve put in them xD after that minute or something it stopped and then I put the left eye in and that I did it 2 tries.

Then ta-da :3 lenses in~!!! just in case you want to know my natural eye-colour is dark brown ღ

Overall, it was hectic and fun all at the same time. I was so excited in the beginning I forgot all about actually putting them in, I assumed it would be doubly (its a word lol) simple and it really truly was NOT simple at all. Something I’ll have to get used to, because I love these and I want to try different colours. It’s part of my new interest 😀 wearing odd coloured lenses and trying out make-up (soon~!! maybe in like a month or two)

I’ll never forget the struggle of my first circle lenses— by struggle I mean how hilarious it was with me giggling and my sister telling me off (in that kind sisterly manner ♥)

More pictures to go with the post :3

My free froggy animal lens case ; and the vile’s that the circle lenses came in :3

With lenses you can’t take that many photos 흑 — but I have one more of the actually package it came in xD

That’s it :3 I’ll wear them for two weeks everyday and then I’ll write a review of these lenses on the blog :3

I already know I’ll be buying more so I’ll create a new category for Circle Lenses 🙂

 

 

Aww. I realize I didn’t keep up with it ; in terms of blogging only. But in real life I was a healthy little baby 🙂

I ate everything in moderation. Put simply that’s a really polite way of saying when I wanted a brownie and I hadn’t had one the previous day I ate it. Enjoyed it, and didn’t feel guilty! ^^

I realized that I can’t deprive my body of the things ‘she’ wants. I just need to learn to keep it to a few treats not every time I go to the Fruit & Veg bakery I need to have a Brownie. No. Because I don’t, I had one the previous day, so I don’t need one. Rather opt for an Aloe drink (btw. I had never tasted Aloe Vera drinks before a few weeks ago but I love them!)

I think I’ve mentioned a couple of times how much I adoooooooore smoothies. I love ’em and can’t get enough of them. But I watched a program on BBC Knowledge and it made me think that I use having a smoothie as a health crutch. Always saying “its healthy, it has fruit and yoghurt, and muesli so of course its healthy” – it’s not that healthy, since it has a lot of sugar, and personally I don’t care because they are sooo yummy but I stopped having them every single day, now I alternate between Aloe Vera (cherry flavour with real cherry fruit pieces) ; Litchi juice ; and the smoothie! 🙂

That’s more balanced isn’t it? ^^ I think it is.

Skin front. 

On the front of my skin, it’s improved a lot. Those little blackheads I spoke about, are all gone. They’ve been gone since last week actually. The marks I got from Midnight scratching me and etc. are all gone. AWESOME! </3

my complexion is even brighter. which is a boost in confidence! ^^

Started to exercise! 

I started exercising too. My mum got me an elliptical trainer, and I use it every single day, together with doing push-ups and drinking a lot of water. Don’t want to ge dehydrated. All round fitness.

I tell u one thing hasn’t really improved………..

Organization/motivation/being lazy 

this hasn’t changed much, but I’m working really hard on it, actually, after posting this I’m going to start writing my first draft of my composition for my book report. As well as my vocation paper, which I need to be done super fast! ^_^ and later on today I told my sister I would work hard to create an .srt file for her, which means I have to transcribe a Korean variety show. Yay.

That will not be easy but it will be fun 😉
