Good evening from Japan! <3
For tonight’s post, I just want to share one of the pages from my favorite notebook from Muji + some #GirlTalk, teehee! Whenever I feel overwhelmed by happenings OR by my own brain lol, I usually just cry it out alone to make myself feel better and grab my favorite notebooks and pens to doodle happy thoughts and dreams. These past 2 weeks had been such a whirlwind for me. I don’t really speak much about my ongoing struggles (because I’d rather solve / survive these first on my own… >_<) … but I feel more comfortable now to write about it… since the storm has almost passed, haha. I really don’t like it when my female hormones battle against me. I just had the TOUGHEST weeks of PMS (premenstrual syndrome) ever. I had 2 great weeks, then 2 weeks of struggle. HUHU.
Mood swings and body aches? Check, check! I tried to make myself feel better but ahhh, stress + PMS combination felt like I was in a battlefield alone. : ( To my fellow females out there, have you ever felt like this before? Hopefully next month, I won’t undergo such psychological war-like phase anymore, lolol. Cold season + mood swings caused by hormonal changes…. let me just sleep the whole day.. and read books. ;_; Going to gym regularly and exercising did help..though. But goodness, the unexplainable crying spells that came out of nowhere… I thought I’d gone crazy already. My cousin Gilbert was playing Celine Dion’s songs while driving.. and I cried the whole time for no reason. Holy smokes.. :))
Anywayyy, the problem has already passed~ I’ll just do better in cheating / tricking myself next month / cycle (woops, sorry too much girl talk haha but yes). Maybe I’ll come up with a “how-to” post on how to UN-PMS your month. Hahaha! Anyway, this has become way too off-topic already.. lolol PMS-ing Kaila.. you better run and hide, haha~ Kidding!
Blogging has been such a therapeutic routine for me that’s why I’m trying my best to commit to it. For some reason, “clicking” that publish button gives me a sweet feeling or sense of accomplishment. Yay, I did something productive today~ something to that effect, haha! When I get blank about what to write / blog about, I’d usually come up with a list about things I’m / should be grateful for, as a reminder for my present / future self.
So for today’s happy things list, here are my take~
- Anything matcha makes Kaila happy.
- Blogging my dreams
- Cardcaptor Sakura
- Walking (+ listening to music)
- Baskin Robbins’ chocomint icecream!!
- Bows, peterpan collars & polkadots!
- Having the confidence to speaking in Nihongo : )
- Waking up & not feeling tired ~
- Doodling my goals
- Pink Sakura trees~ SPRING 早くしてください〜 ;_;
