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 repeat 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, but 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 fan fics again and managed to get going on some, but I can’t promise on 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 teeny, tiny bit of hope that 2018 will actually be better. So we’ll see, right?

Here To Heart: Merry Christmas!

The drama’s Weibo page released some photos in celebration of the holidays so I thought I share it here as well.

Hope everyone’s enjoying the holidays or try to make the best of it–whatever you’re going through right now.

Seriously, I’m really looking forward to this drama.

They’re sooo cute!

Let’s hope we don’t have to wait long, lol.

Here To Heart: The Wrap-Up

Yes, they wrapped up already!

It seemed that the cast got along quite well. Some of them were even in tears during the wrap-up. Once again, I can’t emphasize enough how much I’m anticipating this drama. Mostly because of Janine and Zhang Han. But I liked some of the other cast that I watched in the past too so hope the plot would live up to it.

In addition to Janine and Zhang Han, Jenny Zhang and Jing Chao are the other main leads. Supporting cast will be Zhou Qi Qi, Jin Ze Hao, Liang Da Wei, Ji Xiao Bing, and Guo Zi Qian. Also, the article mentioned scheduling conflict as the reason for Huang Xiao Ming not starring in this drama like planned previously.
