Healing

My heart was broken on February 4, 2018. My Patriots lost to the Eagles, and it hurt more than any break-ups I ever had in my entire life. It was like Icarus getting closer to the sun only to be defeated. I know, it is quite pathetic to say but I have to tell you that it took a while for me to understand football much less like it.

What made me like football? I guess it was the spirit of football fans during the season. Everybody (well almost everybody) seem to have that electric excitement during football season—may it be college or professional. The loyalty to team spirit despite of losses and coldness. It is fun to learn about superbowl parties and tailgates, the banters, and the overall charge of happiness when their favorite team play.

What made me like the Patriots? It’s all about following my instinct of likeness to something. I have tried watching different teams such as Broncos, Titans, and even Chargers when I was still living in San Diego, but they never caught my interest until I saw the Patriots play on TV. There was  something that defines a different kind of dedication that describes the Patriots; not to mention some good looking and talented players on the field. Patriots always had their cool despite of everything that was thrown to them. Over the years of scandals and hates against the Patriots...still they stand strong.

As for the Superbowl, the Eagles deserved the win. I know that—and I will not deny it. They did a great job. However, I wanted the Patriots to win just so the team will depart with one last unforgettable season, not to mention a successful last game together. The assistant coaches are moving on to coaching their own teams—one to the Colts, and the other one to the Lions. There's a rumor about Belichick retiring and so does Gronk. Who is retiring next? Brady? Now, that is a scary thought!

Although I know that some good things never last, I don’t think it was wrong for me to want to see them get to win that 6th ring...that last hoorah that would’ve wrapped the team up. I guess I have watched too many movies to expect a bittersweet ending, but what can a Patriot fan do but wait for the team to rebuild. I know that my team will muster that patriot strong to come rise back from the ashes like a Phoenix—with a fury to rise back again with grace and power; we—the fans, we’ll be there, through losses and wins, cheering our team for whatever goes along our way...because we are Patriots!!!

2019

Hello world! Today is the first day of a new year and I feel great! Sure, I am only at home being cozy and avoiding the frigid temperature outside but I am in the moment of planning what this new year will bring into my life. Scratch that! What great improvements I can deliver into this new year! I don’t want to make an outrageous list that is impossible to commit into so I will only make a promise to do better this year. I will try not to submit myself into a stressful situation. As I think about my biggest problem in 2018 it was by acting without thinking which only elevated my stress level. This year, I have to consider that I cannot help what situations that will come into my life, all I can do is to wait and analyze before reacting to the situation. So this is my only promise to myself and I will try my hardest to commit to this promise because after all, it will benefit my health and sanity! Cheers to a brand new year

Of Bread & Blanket

Oh looky, September is here already and I have accomplished two things on the first day! I baked a chocolate chip banana bread and I finished crocheting Katie’s baby blanket! I have been working on the baby blanket on and off for about two weeks now. I had to bring it to work and fiddled with it during breaktime to make sure that it will be done before her baby shower this Friday—which I cannot attend due to poor time-management by whoever organized it. Besides me, the only other person who is close with Katie in the entire workplace is Irina, and we both get out at 2 p.m. (the party is at 3!). So, the only two people she wants to attend on that shower will not be there! Like I said, poor time-management by whoever organized it. We will both try to make it but I don’t think it will happen since we both have to pick up our kids from school. Nevertheless, we already have gifts for her baby. It just sucks we can’t be there.

So anyway, moving on to a more positive note, my chocolate chip…

Hair Do

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post from Divatress but all opinions are mine.

Have you ever looked at somebody else's hair and wished that you could have the same? I have! I always have long, fine, straight hair and yes, not to brag but a lot of people like my hair but to be honest, it needs more volume and more body.

I have always been jealous of my cousin's hair. She always have that full hair with the right amount of volume and wave and I thought it was always the hair I really wanted. I have tried going to the hair salon and had my hair curled  but I didn't know how to take care of it so it didn't come out great, so I accepted my fate--I will have this plain straight hair with not enough volume and body.

Fortunately there are beautiful half wigs that I can rock on during special occasions. They have tons of wigs to choose from short, straight, curly, or those amazing weaves. You can choose from real human hair, synthetic, or human hair blend. You can create your o…
