Every Book I Read in 2019

In 2019, I made a goal for myself to read 12 books over the course of the year. For some, this may seem like a rather low bar, just one book a month. But it’s been so long since I’ve read consistently, so I wanted to start off slow. I was worried I wouldn’t make it, but in the fall I signed up for a library card at my local library and my motivation to read was reignited. I found new ways to incorporate reading into my daily life and I was able to meet my goal, right at the end of December with just a few days left to spare. Read on to find out what I read in 2019!

Reflecting on My 2019 Goals

So we’re a good chunk of the way through January already, but I thought it would be a good idea to look back over my 2019 goals and see how far I got before moving on to my new goals for the new year.

Last year, I made two separate lists: one list of “intentions,” or goals that I felt couldn’t quite be quantified or measured, and one list of “goals,” which turned out to be a lot more like a bucket list. Since then I’ve learned a lot about how to properly design and plan goals, so while I wasn’t able to accomplish much last year, I am hoping for a lot more success in 2020.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the two lists and see how I did!

Welcoming 2020

Happy New Year! We have officially entered into a new decade! Some people don’t find this to be a particularly important fact, but to me it seems rather momentous. It strikes me that 80 years from now, a new generation will look back at what we wore and what we listened to as a moment in history, the same way we look back at the flappers of the 1920s. So I guess we better make this decade something to remember!

My Current Study Planner

Yesterday, I registered for the TOPIK II. With only 3 months left until the exam, I have a lot of studying and preparation to do. While I usually do most of my planning and listing in my bullet journal, I thought it would be nice to use a separate planner to track my daily studies and keep me focused for the next few months. During my last trip to Tokyo, I picked up a really lovely study planner which I will be showing in today’s post.

Let’s go~!

My Goals and Intentions for 2019

Hey guys, it’s Veronica.

Today, I wanted to share my goals and intentions for 2019. It might seem like they’re the same thing, but there is a difference between the two! And while most people preach the importance of setting “SMART” goals, I think that also setting intentions, which are not as easily measured, can contribute to cultivating the mindset needed for achieving your goals. But I’m not a psychologist, so what do I know!

In this post, I’ll be going through some of my most important intentions for the year, as well as detailing each of my goals. If you’re looking for ideas or inspiration for your own 2019 goals, read on!

Getting Back into K-Dramas with “Strong Girl Bong-Soon”

There was a time in my life where I easily binge-watched entire dramas because I couldn’t get enough of the larger-than-life plot lines and characters. But life, as it does, gets in the way and over the past few years I’ve lost touch with the whole world of k-dramas. Which is such a shame, because I actually really love dramas! They’re fun, fantastical, romantic, unbelievable, hilarious, colorful, and endearing.

My SUPER SIMPLE Korean Skincare Routine – Just 4 Steps!

Hey guys, it’s Veronica.

Following my previous post about how I’m trying to up my game on social media, I decided to film a fun and simple video about my skin care routine using all Korean-brand products.

If you have ever had any interest in Korean skincare, you’ve probably heard of the famed “10-step Korean skincare routine” which, if followed diligently day and night, promises smoother, softer, younger-looking skin. That very well may be true, but I was way too lazy to find out for sure.
