In Case You Missed It: My Favourite Posts of 2019

Here are my favourite posts of 2020.

My Thoughts on Weathering With You – Makoto Shinkai 2020 Film

I wrote this review after I watched it in the theatres. I think Weathering With You was the last movie I watched with friends, so I’m really glad I went that day.

Travel Diary: Bowen Island

I went to Bowen Island with my friends for healing because I was super stressed at the time. I don’t think any of us really expected a pandemic to happen back then, so I feel lucky that I was able to spend quality time with my friends.

A positive post

In this post, I wrote about the good things that happened to me during quarantine. I found it helpful to look at the good moments.

Chuang 2020: My Thoughts on the Final Ranking

This is one of my best posts in terms of views. I was super passionate about this Chinese survival show.

Revisiting The Untamed with Elle – Blogger Collab! Part 1

I had a ton of fun collaborating with Elle. It was super cool chatting with her about something we both love: The Untamed. & I think the post reflects that.

Authenticity?

Rather than the actual content, I want to highlight the post’s comment section. There are wonderful conversations and I was happy that so many of you guys engaged with the post. Thank you.

#Controversed Week 4

This is a post I wrote in response to Moya’s #Controversed Week 4 prompts on managing blogging criticism.

Going Back to My Roots

This is a personal post I wrote about my motivations for blogging, and I want to share it again.

2020 Year-End Review

Many people told me that they were able to relate my post. Reflection is good, especially for 2020.

Anime X-Change: Time of Eve

Anime X-Change was an event hosted by Jon Spencer Reviews. I was recommended Time of Eve; here’s my review.

Another Question

You can read my other Question post HERE.

A question for bloggers: Do you ever feel like some of your posts fade into irrelevancy as you keep putting out new posts? That they get buried deep in the archives? I guess this question applies for bloggers that frequently post.

I have over 550 posts. Maybe you can think of a few of my posts on the top of your head, but I’m guessing they’re the more recent ones. I won’t blog any less because of this, though.

Do you agree? Let me know your thoughts.

Photos From My Walk + Gifts From Moya

Once again, thank you Moya for the gifts from Taiwan and the clay supplies! I still remember the last time you gave me gifts. I’ll definitely use everything!

After the rain

The hydrangeas have not fully bloomed but I thought I would take photos to mark the first day of summer (yesterday). Click here to see the hydrangea photos I look last year.

Taken with Canon EOS 600D. The photos are not edited.

This is from my Instagram story. The lyrics are from the song Ref:rain by Aimer.

The original photo.

Travel Diary: Bowen Island

I went to Bowen Island for a couple of days with two friends. It’s really close to Vancouver.

I felt stressed these past weeks and wanted a break from city life. Prior to the trip, I had not been on an overnight trip in several years and did not hike in a really long time. I am a homebody but it was relaxing and refreshing to be in nature. I felt peaceful.

I think that when you’re on the island, you are on an “island timezone.” What I mean by this is that there’s no rush and there’s not much need to check your phone. I wonder why I check my phone a lot more in the city- perhaps because a lot of people have the ‘need to be productive’ mindset?

Day 1

The view from the ferry.

The view from the top.

I would say that the highlight of the trip was stargazing. There is only one street light on the island. I had never seen so many stars before. They looked so big and I could see them clearly.

Day 2

The lighthouse and volcanic rocks.

I got my friends to watch The Untamed with me after our hikes. They became really invested in it, which was great. Hehehe.

In Case You Missed It: My Favourite Posts of 2019

Here are my favourite posts of 2019. I’m thinking of writing a post for each year but we shall see.

Leaving Twitter

Deleting my Twitter account was a huge change for me. I do miss my friends but it was not a good place for me (due to reasons outlined in the post).

Finding Inspiration in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)

This was my submission for Jon’s Creator Showcase- November 2019 Edition. The Infinite Zenith did a fabulous job with hosting!

I had fun writing episodic mini reviews.

Beautiful Hydrangeas

These are the first shots I took with my DSLR. I love hydrangeas.

My friends and I went to a sunflower festival and we had fun taking pictures. I like the wildflower photos the most.

I borrowed a cosplay from a fellow Anime Club exec. These photos are from a cos test the day before Clubs day at the university.

Inktober 2019 – Days 1-3 

This was my first time participating in Inktober. It pushed me to draw a lot.

Steam Clock in Gastown, Vancouver 

A lot of you guys liked my photos of the steam clock in Vancouver. Some of you thought it was a screenshot from an anime, which I thought was quite amusing.
