Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

I still can’t believe Godfrey Gao is no more. It’s like my brain isn’t accepting that information. It’s surreal

    “Autumn’s Concerto” (but will need to prepare some tissues handy), “Murphy’s Law Of Love”, “Fated To Love You” (the OG version)

    Some I’ve heard good reviews for but have not watched myself:
    “Bromance”, “HIStory” (BL drama, all three seasons), “Before We Get Married”, “Drunken To Love You”, “Prince Of Wolf”, “In A Good Way”, “Back To 1989”, “Love Cuisine”

    What kind of dramas do you like? And are you looking for a quality drama or a cracktastic drama that will make you wonder what the heck you just fell into?

      A show with warmth. I’m okay with cliches if teh end product is good. I’m not very good with sagueks and melodramatic shows

    In Time With You. One of the best shows I’ve seen period. Just stay far far away from the Korean remake.

    Bromance is cracktastic. Attention, Love! Is fluffy cute fun. Murphy’s Law of Love, Drunken to Love You, Love Cuisine, Love @ Seventeen, Five Missions, Rock ‘n Road, Swimming Battle, and Pursuit of Happiness, are all pretty good too.

    The original “Fated to Love You” and “Before We Get Married”. I heard “Yong-jiu Grocery Store” is good too.

    Autumn’s Concerto has my favourite main couple and second leads 🙂

    Fated to Love You, Mars, In Time With You, Devil, May Queen, Besides You (cheesy lines at their finest!), Hana Kimi, Meteor Garden for the classic ones.

    The World Between Them Us (not a romance, serious themes), Five Missions, Iron Ladies, Office Girls, Marry Me or Not for modern ones.

    The Fearless (crime, investigation), Young Joo Store (slice of life) and Back Home (slice of life) sound good even if I haven’t watched them yet.

    you did?

    it is nice.. specially the wooing scenes lol

    but it is not crackworthy

    although tharntype love is somehow , with zero plot, still very very very interesting.. chemistry between the leads 🙂

      I’ve sadly not found any of the HIStory series crack-worthy. They are entertaining for those of us who like gay romances, but sadly these are not the best made dramas.

      I’m ok now. She just makes really irrational demands and has no respect or understanding of other people’s time. She’s also really rude to me but behaves in the same way with another girl just because she is rich and her parents are very closely associated with the school

Beanies I have to work under this teacher and she is the worst. She keeps on making things difficult for everyone and has such irrational demands. She never even listens to me

    Don’t worry, my class teacher at gymnasium was like that. She taught us biology and chemistry and even if didn’t get the best marks, didn’t have my head in school books but in other ones, I remember things until now 20 years later. Some teachers can stress you, make you to hate them but finally it can be useful. Although I can’t tell that about my german language teacher. She didn’t like me from the beginning until the end and me neither. It’s pity though, because from almost fluent german I went to intermediate level and now I would need some time to get it back.

      She’s pretty elitist and favours other girls who have more money. It’s honestly upsetting

        So make everything to ignore her “stupidity” and work as much as you can that you could beat those money protectionists. My dad did it that way and succeeded.

Working beanies, how do you not bring work home? I have to organise some competitions and I’m getting distracted by it. How do I ignore it while studying?

    Unhelpful tips by me :
    1. Don’t accept/start new tasks an hour before closing. You need to focus finishing what’s on your hand first.
    2. If you can’t finish your work by today, you can do it by tomorrow.
    3. Sounds dumb but never share your contact number to everyone. I did it once and you may end up still working at home until late midnights & weekends.
    4. Ask for help to your co-worker
    5. It’s okay for not responding to calls, texts, and emails when you’re home. It’s your rights to do so

      Thank you so much. I’ve been getting a weird sort of anxiety because of stuff like this. The people working alongside me are able to kind of log off and you know ignore unimportant things, but it’s my first time doing stuff like this so I tend to get anxious.

Hi beanies, so I’ve failed in maths paper and I kind of was expecting this to happen because of all the disruption in my maths studies. I just kind of gave up midway.

    Hey there, Mani-chan. I’ve been in your shoes many times before (I was horrible at maths all throughout primary and secondary school and I’m still pretty hopeless at it) and I know how much it sucks, especially because I come from a country that’s ranked within the top 5 for math scores or something like that. I always felt really bad because no matter how hard I tried, I just didn’t get it. Sometimes, it’s just like that.

    If you weren’t able to prepare for the exam properly or if math is just not your forte (or maybe a little bit of both), it’s okay. Getting a not so great result seems really bad when you’re going through it, but I can say from experience that it’s not going to bring you down for the rest of your career as a student. You can overcome this, so please don’t be too hard on yourself!

    I know it’s not much, but I hope you feel better. Rooting for you ♡

      Thank you so much for the supportive words. I have confidence that I can do much better if i prepare well. It’s just that it will be really hard to break the news to my parents

        I feel ya. I’m a math-illiterate with a financial economist for a dad. Every exam I had to break it to him that I had yet again flubbed my math paper 😅

        I hope your parents will be understanding ♥️ And if they’re a little upset with you at first, don’t feel too disheartened. They’ll come around.

Beanies I’m pretty stressed today and when i looked at the calendar today, I realised how few days are left for my exams. I don’t know if it was anxiety, but I started feeling pretty pukish.

        Sometimes staying in and studying for long periods of time causes you to worry more than you should but it might just be your brain asking you to take a break 🙂

Beanies this teacher got really angry at me and took her frustration out on me. She actually hung up on me, didn’t pick up me calls and seenzoned my texts. I should be ignoring her and moving on but no teacher has talked to me this way and I am finding it really hard to get this incident out of my head. What do you guys do when you need to let go of or ignore what people say?

    Do something that requires lot of attention. Like play games? watch dramas? anyway Don’t let it get to you…

    Talk it out with family and friends? I usually feel an imperative to DO something, which often ends up not being the best idea 🙄 It works out better for me to get other people’s views on the situation and not assume that I was 100% right about it.

Beanies I just feel very alone these days. I barely get any time in school to interact to my friends and I can’t tell my problems to my parents because their standard response is focus on your studies

    I don’t know what you’re going through but find a way to release stress with an activity for example. As for your friends, texting can help you. I send them a short or long text when I can’t reach them irl. Taking time to put your head out of problems will be beneficial for you.
