Life in General: An Update

I have not written for a long time, but I should say that I have tried. It is also worth mentioning that I have focused some of my attention to Instagram-ing some short-lived projects.

I have tried taking online classes about topics I think will help my WIP.

 Trying to learn more about magic so I can write better fantasy. 🦄🦄🦄

I’ve tried learning Korean but I’ve stopped for a while. 😁 It’s hard. 😫😭

Ending (or technically, starting) the year learning Korean. I’m still slow in reading and speaking but hey that’s okay. #donenotperfect Trying to fit one more goal before the year ends lol✌🏼 #onlinelearning #hangeul #koreanlanguageclass @jrxxmh Sabayan mo ko.

I’ve tried jewelry making but I am currently lacking materials. I’ll go back to that before the year ends. This is a pair of earring I made for a friend’s birthday.

I have been bullet journaling (of which I take some pictures and post them on IG).

I’ve done some calligraphy and used it on my bujo.

OMG this #calligraphy #lettering for next week’s #bujoweeklyspread didn’t make me cringe! 🙈💕 yaaaassss #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bujogirl #blackandwhitebujo #minimalistbulletjournal

I’m happy to say that I think I have improved (at least with the pictures I take for IG 😁)


Sooo…

I’ll be turning 25 soon. Like in a few days.

And it’s amazing how much I’ve learned about myself and about everything around me. It’s fun discovering something about myself with the help of another person. I’m grateful of all the people who are always there for me as well as those who have not been, as they have taught me life lessons too.

I may still be a bit sad inside but not so much anymore. I’m seeing a bit more happiness right now. But it could just be that it’s my birthday month.

I’m hoping that I could write more. Dance more. Create more. And hopefully I could update this blog more. And hopefully make it more personal? I’ve always had a hard time sharing my life and personal stuff because, you know, this is the internet. But maybe someday I’ll learn.

What does the Friend Zone mean to a Girl?

As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to talk about getting the girl the right way. Again, I am not an expert on this but I am a woman so please take all of this with a grain of salt.

One of the things that guys really hate is being sent to the friend zone. What exactly does a girl think of the friendzone? In my case, this zone is only there because women are afraid to flat out reject a guy. So instead of saying no, she says maybe.

What do I mean?

When a guy is interested with a girl, he befriends her. He doesn’t consider if the girl likes him back. He immediately thinks that if he shows her good things, treat her well, and buys her stuff, she’ll see that he’s the man for her. However, girls don’t like to assume. So what happens is, the woman thinks that this is just how the guy normally treat women. That he is just a really great friend. So in this case, the best way to deal is to lay your intentions. Tell her that you like her and you’re doing this because you are hoping she’ll see you as more than a friend.

I know that “some” girls actually take advantage of men who treat them well, but this only happens when the guy doesn’t try to check first if the girl is into them. If a girl is busy dating more than one man, and you’re not okay with that, let go. You deserve someone who will only want to be with you. Someone who will be content with you. And women also deserve this, so unless you are sure that you want to date ONLY HER, don’t “court” her. I think it’s time people stop playing mind games and just dive into being in a relationship.

The only reason men have a hard time understanding women’s motive, is because they don’t take the time to observe. [Okay. Observe, not stalk. No creepiness please.] And guys, please don’t be afraid of rejection. If she says no, just know that you’ve dodged a bullet. You don’t want to be with a girl who doesn’t want you. And to lower the damage of being rejected, I think you must make it clear to a woman that you like her before doing all the nice things I mentioned above.

Have you heard of “courtship”? This is when you lay your intentions, and tell a woman that you want to be in a relationship with her. IMO, the only way not to be on the friendzone is to ask her first for permission if she’s down to date you. At least, if she rejects you, and calls you a “friend”, you haven’t invested much.

Dating and relationships are complicated, so everything might be different for you. But don’t lose hope. If you’re a good person, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect person for you, who will make you feel loved, the way you deserve to be loved.

Thank you!

Blog Series Idea: How to Get the Girl

So I just came across a book about successfully getting the girl, and it was sexist and I can honestly say that it might have been written by a douche bag. Reading it made my blood boil. So I thought, if guys really need help, I’m willing to shed some light.

Of course, I’m not an expert. I don’t have a degree on women nor have I done research on it. But I am a woman and I have friends and family who are women. So I’m guessing I know at least something about how to pursue them. 😉

I’ll probably make it a series so I will prepare an outline later tonight before I publish said topics. Just so I don’t have a messy discussion of articles.

I also encourage you to publish one or maybe comment on what you think. Girls are different and your opinion may help them guys get the girls properly. ☺

Til my next post,

First up: larger fonts that work well as collection titles.

And some smaller ones plus dividers you can use for dates.


Hope you enjoyed, and let me know if you tried any of these yourself!

Book 4/52 Dragon Slippers by Jessica Day George Review

It’s been a while since I last read a physical book. It was nice to do it again. 😊 The smell of old books is really relaxing. I bought this book on a sale, but it looks nice.

The book is titled Dragon Slippers, written by Jessica Day George. I think there is a second book titled “Dragon Flight”. I would probably have to scour book sales and secondhand bookstores just to find it. 😄
