Virna’s Update: What Happened in 2016?

I hope you all are having a fantastic holiday!

Can’t believe it’s another new year.

New Year. New resolutions… or in my case, not-that-new-of-resolutions-but-lets-call-it-new -anyway 😛

Nothing much happened for me in 2016. Well, first, I graduated from Uni and somehow I managed to got a job afterward. Not so shabby. But still, it’s not the job I love. But who does really? Most people I know doesn’t really love their job. At the end of the day, we have to put food on the table to live.

Second, I rediscovered my love for Korean Drama again. Since it’s been quiet in Kristen Stewart Fandom, I need a place to use my fangirl energy hahaha. I’ve seen 9 Korean Dramas in 2016 after being hiatus from it.

You must be wondering why was I in a hiatus in the first place?

Well, back then when I was in HS, internet was a scarce thing [I know, I know, it’s so hard to believe], it’s so difficult for me to keep track of my favs’s news about their drama/movie. I literally have to buy this magazines for all Korean stars if I want to keep up to date and it cost like Rp. 50.000 back then. That amount might be nothing now, but at that time it was everything. I can buy a lots of things with that amount of money. So I decided to leave the Korean fandom. And by the time I got easy access to Internet, I was already in too deep in Twilight/Kristen Stewart Fandom hahaha … so yeah, that’s the reason why I was in a hiatus. I blame [more like grateful] Descendants of the Sun for breaking my hiatus. Hahaha.

So if you were confused as to why I suddenly posted something about Korean Drama…now you know. My friend, Maya, even gave me a list of all Korean Dramas I need to watch in 2017 xD gotta love that bitch.

And the last two things I wanna tell you guys is of course about my cats. My friend recently just adopted one of my cat [since I have too many and I ran out of space also money], Olaf. Here he is in his new home

I hope you are happy in your new home. And please don’t hate me. Your new owner will love you [if not more] as much as I do :). Be a good boy, okay? I love you, Olaf.

Before I go to the last thing, I wanna tell a little backstory. So few months ago, my cat, Ulit, went missing. I must say I overreacted, because she’s back after two/three days later. Cat wander around the neighborhood all the time. IT’S A CAT FFS. But the thing is, I live in a neighborhood where most of the people here hates cats. They wont hesitate to poisoned your cat and left it on your doorstep, just because they don’t like your cat walking around at their garden. Either that or stole it and sell it {since my cat is a Persia mixed Angora breed]. And recently, she went missing again. It’s been nine days since she left home. I really miss her stupid face so much 😦

I miss you, Ulit.

Whew, I didn’t want to start this new year with sadness. My hope is if indeed someone took her, they will take care of her better than I do. It’s the hardest thing to do to let you go, Ulit. Anyway, if you are interested about what I have read in 2016, you can read it here.

By the time this post is up, I’m on a vacation with my family in Batam.

Happy Holiday!
