Year 2017 in Recap

year_review

When I thought that 2016 was a terrible year for me, I was wrong. 2017 continued to tank to a new level of crappiness. There were many frustrating things–one after another. It was like when I asked, “How much worse could 2017 be?”, it was like a challenge to the universe. So stuff happening in real life obviously affected how much time I have for this blog or attempted to keep some sort of activity. I did better than last year regarding updates, but that was a lot of effort because I’m still way behind on some news that I wanted to talk about. Yet no time or more like didn’t feel like it at the moment. I continued to get drained to another level that I thought might not be possible–like several days before. Then the pattern just repeated itself at different intervals. I think somewhere along the way, I ended up revamping my blog by getting rid of the too random posts. Like those general update ones. Although my blog already is random on many levels, I didn’t want to just post for the sake of placeholders too much. Anyway, here are some stats for this year.

Total Posts in 2017: 155 (11.7% of all time).

January: 18 (% of the year)
February: 10 (%)
March: 21 (%)
April: 20 (%)
May: 11 (%)
June: 18 (%)
July: 6 (%)
August: 4 (%)
September: 20 (%)
October: 14 (%)
November: 9 (%)
December: 4 (%)

Books Reviews:

Sad, because I actually read a bit this year but didn’t feel like doing reviews for some of them. Maybe I’ll go back to do them later.

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries:

Fan Fiction:

Complete failure–unlike what I promised last year about getting things done. I started looking over some of the fanfics again and managed to get going on some, but I can’t promise how fast it would be rolled out. I’ll get it out when I’m happy with what I wrote.

Songs Translations:

I used “You’re Always Beautiful” to start the year, thinking that if I continue to retain some sense of positiveness, somehow things will get better. But it didn’t. Anyway, how was this year regarding translations? I didn’t realize I was that productive. Mostly, I tried to push the majority of 183 Club’s songs out.

Chinese:

Vietnamese:

I didn’t want to do this update like I said last year. However, I felt like I needed to persuade myself to continue on. Not to mention, I want to keep some sort of a teeny, tiny bit of hope that 2018 will actually be better. So we’ll see, right?

Almost Perfect: Love Actually

Danson actually posted about this a while back but I was too lazy to check out. Apparently, this is going along the theme of the movie that Leon was in. It has been ten years since the other one. Are you excited for this one?

Murphy’s Law of Love

I was sort of playing attention to this but not really. I do like Danson and Li Jia Ying from their past dramas. Also, what sparked my interest even more was seeing Enson. Just hope that it won’t be long. ‘Cause it could go either way with Friday airings. I need to play catch up again since the first episode aired already. Will come back for updates–if I can.

HKTV: Voting In Progress

For fans of HKTV, super good news! They’re finally launching! That’s not all either because they had set up a poll on their website, asking the public to vote for which TV series should be broadcast first. Go here if you’re interested. Yes, people who have been tuning in–even if vaguely, might have learned that Ricky Wong managed to find a way so they could finally launch. The phrase “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” rings true in this case.

Anyway, the deadline for the voting is November 9. Results will be announced on the 10th.

Princess Cyndi: Birthday 2011

The 5th was Cyndi’s birthday and it really proved who remembered and who didn’t. (We don’t count people who are WAY too busy with their lives, right? NOT! It’s a matter of effort.) Anyway, not counting the girls and some of the guys that I am not familiar with (regarding friendship/history/rumored), BUT the ones I do sort of followed are listed by the time (earliest to latest)–with Cyndi’s responses to them:


Nicholas Teo/ Zhang Dong Liang (張棟樑)WINNER – He’s mad busy with his new album YET still beat everyone! (No excuse from the others!)


Joe Cheng/ Zheng Yuan Chang (鄭元暢)1ST RUNNER UP – Joe delivers! He’s her good friend all right.


Wilber Pan Wei Bo (潘瑋柏) 2ND RUNNER UP – Another good friend. They’re going to celebrate together! Yay!


JJ Lin (林俊傑) – A promising one from JJ! Do we get to see more pictures then? Or is it in the distant future that they meet up?


Eli Shi Yi Nan (施易男) – The other leading guy didn’t abandon her yet her leading man did? LOL! I haven’t watched Love Keeps Going yet but it’s great to know they’re keeping in touch.


Jacky Chu/ Zhu Fan Gang (祝釩剛) – I so didn’t know this, but no surprise that they’re not that closed? But still cool that he’s admitting that. Always a first for everything? (She still didn’t add him. It’s okay. He’ll get over it. I hope.)


Calvin Chen Yi Ru (辰亦儒) – Calvin’s time is actually 21:28. I went to his page and made sure of it regarding the time-stamp. Cool that they’re still interacting and he beat someone! mwuhahahaha (Okay, just kidding…)


Danson Tang Yu Zhe (唐禹哲) – Just one second behind Calvin. (Blame it on the technology, lol.) I just began stalking Danson recently. So cool that their birthdays are 3 days apart.


Jiro Wang Dong Cheng (汪東城) SAD CASE – There are no other words to describe it except those two, LOL! Or are Jindi fans going to come up with those things about ‘saving the best for last’? (Okay, just messing around here since thoughts do count…)

Okay, so unless they don’t have Weibo–or had already said ‘happy birthday’ to her through another way, who knows? The others, better luck next year, LOL!

Thoughts?
