“the talking cupboard” is turning two today!
Another year passed by in a blink of an eye and not just the blog, me myself is growing older by a year. That also means I’m nearing my final year of study and at this same time next year, I might be getting a real job. Time sure flies!
Up until now, I think I learn something new from my drama watching and blogging, that is being moderate. I watched a lot of dramas in the beginning of 2012, but soon, I began to drop the dramas left and right, something that I really hate to do. Yeah, I don’t really fancy watching a drama and then dropping it when I feel it’s too boring or doesn’t suit my taste. And sometimes, real life commitments rear their not-so-ugly heads and I’ll have to attend to them first, so I’ll have to bid goodbye to some dramas. 24 hours seems a little short at times, right?
But then I realized, life isn’t all pretty and so are dramas. There are great dramas and also bad dramas. I used to feel that the effort made by the team behind a drama should be appreciated no matter what happens to the plot, but when the plot doesn’t make sense anymore….well, that’s the end and I’d say bye-bye to the drama. So nowadays, I only pick those that I assume won’t go awry and won’t make my heart boil so much for me to drop it.
Working as an intern during the second half of 2012 gave me a different perspective on the free time. As a student, I got lots of free time in between the classes and assignments, tests and examinations, but as someone working, what’s left after the long office hours was only tiredness. I could only think of my bed once I reached home and I’d sleep early so that I could wake up early on the next morning. The cycle repeated itself, and the time just disappeared just like that. As for the dramas, I decided to cut down the amount I watch and only picked up shows that I was confident that I won’t watch halfway. That got me thinking, what will happen when I start working for real? Will the time come for me to stop watching dramas altogether? Hopefully not!
My taste on dramas also changed drastically. Maybe I am the one changing because of of the age, but I found myself not favoring too much information on the upcoming dramas. Weird, right? It’s just that I’d get bored when I knew too much about a particular drama way before it started airing. I used to love reading the character descriptions and watching the teasers, but not anymore. Probably because knowing too much might lead to a boring first episode, because I knew everything. Hence, I try to avoid the early stills and teasers so that I can enjoy the first episode that is supposed to be the one introducing the drama to me.
I don’t know what the future has in store for me, but wishing more goodness to come my way, be it in real life, dramas, or blog. Oh, to the new friends I made, this is a special shoutout for you!
kfangurl – I like talking and spazzing with her, plus her reviews are my favorites! Sometimes I envy her for being so good at writing! 🙂
heisui – She’s the reason I’m watching several Jdramas right now 😉
soomp – My celebrity friend, because she’s the person behind the awesomeness that is Soompi~
pinkblossom – Her spazzes alongside her buddy whitecarrot at their patch feel like friends talking in front of me.
…and not to forget, the friends over at the Twitterverse. I love to spazz with them and watch them spazzing about the dramas. They’re the reason my timeline is merrier these days!
Last but not least, to the readers of this shabby blog, thanks for your support, be it in the form of reading, liking, commenting, and following the blog! I appreciate all of you and I apologize for the lack of response or post these days ㅠㅠ My internship is going to end this April, so I have to rush and prepare the reports while completing the tasks given to me. I will be in my final year of study when the semester starts, so I might have to abandon the blog for a while sobs Hoping that my final year will not be that difficult….and more good dramas to come, and better posts to be made 😉
