Two Years…and Beyond?

“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! πŸ™‚

heisui – She’s the reason I’m watching several Jdramas right now πŸ˜‰

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 γ… γ…  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 πŸ˜‰

  2. WOOT!! Happy 2nd birthday!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ What a milestone!!

    I hafta tell ya, I was happily reading your post, and identifying with your changing tastes in dramas as you mature as a person & viewer, and as life circumstances evolve around you, and I was nodding & everything.. and suddenly, BAM! I saw my name in your post! I had to blink several times to make sure I wasn’t seeing things, heh! πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much for the shout-out & for your super sweet words of encouragement! I’m honored that you enjoy my reviews.. thank YOU, for your support & all that you do here at the cupboard too! It’s always a pleasure to chat & spazz with you, I enjoy our conversations very much!

    So I really hope that even if you post less often here at the cupboard, that you won’t stop completely (no! never!), and I really, really hope that we’ll still get to chat on Twitter!!

    Last but not least, hwaiting!! For not only your virtual life, but real life as well! Love!

    1. Awww don’t mention it, your reviews are too good to be missed out! Yep, I really hope we’ll be able to spazz together for another ten years or more πŸ˜€ Hopefully we won’t be too busy with life and will be able to keep in touch with each other. 고맙닀 μΉœκ΅¬μ•Ό! πŸ˜‰

  3. Happy 2nd birthday! You are the coolest! I hope even when you start working there is always some time for drama and blogging about it. Or just spaz on twitter. πŸ˜€

  4. 2 years?! That’s like senior status in blog-land.

    Happy 2nd year! And don’t feel guilty about being more discerning/choosy about which dramas to watch. πŸ™‚ Your standards also evolve/level-up as you watch more things. If we all kept watching the same boring plots and didn’t demand for great dramas, we’d be stuck with Dr Jins forever!

    1. It’s nothing, really ^^;

      Thanks for the wish! You’re right about the standard…having watched quite a lot these years make me look for something new in each and every drama I’m watching,not just straight-up romcom or makjang. But it’s all depends on my mood too πŸ˜‰

      LOL at the mention of Dr Jin πŸ˜‰ I didn’t have the gut to watch it and thank God I didn’t! I read the recaps, just for the sake of the fun reading all the comments. Haha!

  5. mimi! I came here looking for your contact info to ask if you would grace Soompi with a post for our 15th birthday, and I found this! hahaha. Thanks so much for the shoutout, and congrats!

Rant Out, Souls!
