Today, I’m sharing every single book that I read in 2021! Even though I didn’t complete my reading goal last year, I still think I had a pretty good reading year since I was able to try out new genres and authors, and generally had fun with what I read.
In this post, I’ll be breaking down the books by my ratings, stats, and discussing my favorites!
At the new year, Duolingo released a year-in-review report for users that broke down minutes learned, XP earned, and other interesting stats. In today’s post, I’ll be sharing my numbers for 2021 (through November 30th) and also reflecting on my Duolingo usage for the past year. Let’s go!
Can you believe it’s officially the year 2022? It’s the year of the tiger! I don’t know about you but I already feel like 2021 was ages ago. I’m so glad we finally made it here, though. So, Happy New Year!
Finally, the Halloween season is upon us! While Halloween is not quite as big a holiday in South Korea as it is in the United States, it is slowly becoming more known and more popular among the younger generation. Many children, especially those who attend private English academies (영어 학원), have had some exposure to the concept of Halloween, so it’s now quite easy to find seasonal decorations and food items at places like Daiso and Starbucks. I’m personally really impressed with the Halloween festivities put on at Everland and Lotte World, two of South Korea’s popular theme parks. I always try to make it a point to visit Everland at least once during their Halloween event period, but since that might not happen this year (pandemic), I wanted to bring the spirit of Halloween home! I already had a sizeable stash of Halloween decorations from my years of teaching English, but I decided to venture out to my nearest Daiso to see what they had in stock.
October is almost here, which means Halloween is also on it’s way! Here in South Korea, we are finally transitioning into fall–we just had the Autumn Harvest Festival holiday last week, called chuseok, and recently the weather has turned rather gloomy and rainy. Before diving into Halloween festivities, I first had to set up my bullet journal to prepare for the upcoming month.
Long time no see, once again! How many times have I started off a blog post exactly like this?? I’ll have to go back and count, because I’m sure it’s a high number. Anyways, here I am, back again, suddenly feeling motivated to write and create just at the turn of the season. I didn’t realize I had left this blog so stagnant this year. My last post was back in March! I actually meant to make a bullet journal post back in May–I made a header image for it and everything, but it never left my drafts, and now I guess it’s rather irrelevant.
How is it March already??? 2021 is really just speeding by. Today I’m giving you a peak into my March setup in my bullet journal. After a very decorative and whimsical February (check it out here and here) I decided to scale it back for March and keep the design really sleek and simple. I also flipped through some of my old bullet journals for inspiration, so some of my favorite functional spreads have made their way into this month’s setup.
