Blogger Dossiers: Shayne

Blogger Dossiers

Ahhh, what a crazy month! I felt like I was always busy with something, and then there was that week where I was sick something fierce to where I had to call out for two consecutive days. That wasn’t fun, but I didn’t forget this month’s Blogger Dossiers post! I asked Shayne if she’d like to be featured. Shayne hails from Alaska, and she blogs about all sorts of meaningful posts. I love her wit and she has a fantastic sense of humour. Get to know Shayne better with this post, and do follow her on Twitter and Instagram!

Symphonic Selections: Violin Sonata No. 5

Symphonic Selections

For some reason or another, I didn’t really listen to music this month. Part it was because I was too busy with spring break week at work, and the other part was because I grew sick with a bad cold that turned into a chest cold. Then I had other things to focus on such as meeting friends, reading on my Kindle, and keeping up with another work project. Needless to say, I haven’t been in a music listening mood, so I was kind of stumped on what to choose for this month’s Symphonic Selections. I thought about featuring a spring-like song because it is springtime up here in the Northern Hemisphere, but I didn’t want to feature Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Instead, I remembered another spring-like classical piece I could feature, a violin sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven!

Fitness Commitment

Fitness Commitment

I’ve mentioned before that I have plans this year to improve my health by exercising, eating right, and quitting smoking. Well, I haven’t been doing well on those three things at all. That big photography contest I organised in February kept me busy starting in January, and then in March I was just exhausted from that project, so I had to put my health plans on the backburner. I hadn’t really thought about getting in shape for a long time, but then I saw one of my acquaintances share her experiences with her personal trainer a few weeks ago, and that started to turn some wheels in my head. Seeing her working out with good results encouraged me to start a new fitness plan.

Siblings I’ll Never Meet

Siblings I'll Never Meet (Photo from Unsplash.com)

Yesterday was National Sibling Day, a day which has no bearing on me. I don’t have siblings. I grew up as an only child, and I admit I was a very spoilt only child. Being an only child meant I had all my parents’ love and attention, so I never had to fight a brother or a sister for all of that. Instead of siblings, I had cousins on my mum’s side. I had three older cousins, and then I was the oldest in our “generation” amongst the six of us. I was the 언니 (Unni) or 누나 (nuna), which is what Koreans call their older siblings or cousins, and being the oldest wasn’t a task I enjoyed. Nonetheless, my cousins were the closest I had to a sibling. Realistically speaking though, I have siblings who share my blood 100%, but I’ll never meet them.

A Day in the Life: April 2016 ~ A Whirling Wednesday

A Day in the Life

It’s been a while, but it’s time to participate in Georgie’s “A Day in the Life” linkup since April 6, 2016 proved to be a super busy Wednesday. Normally my Wednesdays have me at work doing the same ol’ thing. This Wednesday decided to be a bit different. I actually took the day off for my bi-annual hospital torture session, and I also planned to meet my friend Piokun. Those two simple plans kept me on my toes! Read on, and you’ll see what I mean . . .
