So for the last few days I’ve been having really weird dreams and yesterday I had a nightmare to which I woke up and went back to sleep and then I had a dream involving some of you beanies so I’m going to tell it to you.

In the dream I’m throwing a house-warming party and you’re all invited, I don’t know what happens but you guys just appear. @kudoran calls to tell me she’ll be late but @bbstl, @ally-le, @leetennant @ndlessjoie are here (if you’re wondering, LT and mugyuljoie look like their little profile pics.. Ally looks like herself and bbstl has a human body -wearing a pink dress with white polka dots- and a cat’s head)

I ask them where everyone else is and they tell me that no one else is coming, I get upset and tell them that we made so much food.

“We?” LT asks.
“Yes!” I say “SNG helped!”
“What did he make?” She asks.
“Sandwiches!” I tell her and she laughs.
She laughs so hard like that is the funniest thing she’s ever heard.

Then mugyuljoie comes holding this chocolate cake and asks who made it, I tell her he made that cake too and she falls over herself laughing.

“I’m going to try it!” Ally says and before I could get her a fork she digs into it with her hands.

“Can we keep her?” I hear him say so I turn to look at him and he’s holding bbstl who’s turned into a white cat wearing a pink party hat.

“Put her down!” I tell him, “That’s bbstl!”

I’m getting so mad and frustrated at all of this, LT and Mugyuljoie won’t stop laughing, and Ally is getting chocolate all over our white sofas and bbstl, the cat, is snuggling with my husband!

I’m overwhelmed and about to cry when KdramaAhjumma @suriyana-shah walks in with her twin daughters attached to her sides. I’m surprised and I tell her that they told me no one else was coming and she says she came because she had to bring me a house-warming gift. I look at Ally and ask her why she didn’t bring me a gift and she tells me that bbstl, the cat, is her gift!

KdramaAhjumma interrupts us and tells us that she is in a hurry and she needs to give me my gift before she leaves. “Give me your hand!” she says and it makes me smile because SNG says that to me when he wants to surprise me with gifts, I look up and it’s him (KdramaAhjumma disappears), “Give me your hand!” he says and I give him my hand and he gives me..  an .. egg!

I’m confused and I want to ask him what this means but I don’t get to because @kudoran arrives and bbstl, the cat, gets scared and attacks us and the egg falls and breaks.

I wake up. The end.

No one try to make sense of this dream, let’s leave it to whatever it is.. but @bbstl, I think, you need some explaining to do here, you were getting a bit too cozy with him 😒

    Ally messing up your white couch with chocolate cake is very upsetting.

            How to make a cat stop wiggling their cat eyebrows?
            See, I’m not good at this!

            0

            @azzo1 Well, there’s no way to stop a cat from wiggling its eyebrows. You learn to live with a cat totally on its own terms! But if it happens, this will be the best “conception dream” ever. Quite different than the kdrama dreams of a dragon or a tiger, etc. 😁 I think I’d stay away from chocolate cakes for the time being 🍰

    I’m sorry for laughing (or maybe not) and I really want a piece of that chocolate cake now. I think @ally-le should have one delivered to me.

      The chocolate cake was for all of you to share.. I don’t know why Ally did what she did! LOL!

    omg, I just laughed so hard that I gave myself a coughing fit. I was not snuggling with SNG but expressing my gratitude that you two have found each other 😻
    I think @ally-le has some nerve giving me away but am thrilled to be the only Beanie who is moving in with you two! 🐈🎀🎉 party on!

      I think it was a very thoughtful gift. You could talk kdramas all day while living on SNG’s lap! @azzo1 has a right to be jealous!

          Honestly, I don’t.. (I think I mentioned it to you guys once when @yyishere suggested I hold your cat instead of a bouquet for my wedding). I find them cute, I really do, but that’s about it for me, I’m sorry.. but if I have to, I’ll make you an exception!

        Well, we shall see. I reserve the right to reinhabit your dreams at any time!
        I was still laughing about this last night and had a hard time not explaining to the friends I was with that I was in a pink dress with a white cat head in the dreams of someone on the other side of the planet (being the most exciting thing I’d “done” in some time 😹).

    so I missed everything and came late 🥺🥺🥺😭
    (that’s consistent with myself getting late on DB for SNG story, even in your dream it happens 🥺)

    “No one try to make sense of this dream” oh my dear…I did, I’ll think of you a lot this week and in my prayers

      Probably that’s why .. you stay true to yourself, Kudo!

      Don’t.. don’t make sense of it but do keep me in your prayers, the creepiest thing happened to me yesterday, some old man knocked on my car window so I thought he needs help or something, I pull the window down and he goes: “Be careful!” and leaves. I swear I got chills, and I’m really not getting very good dreams these days (except for the beanie dream!), I haven’t told anyone about it, not even SNG, so if I disappear, it’s probably that old man 😅

      3
      1

        I usually don’t remember my dreams (and the few times when it happens, it’s a weird story ^^’)
        stay safe, take care and be careful (but not from an old man this time =P)

        “you stay true to yourself, Kudo” err, not sure I’m happy with myself on that , the chocolate cake though x) !
        ps : untrustworthy piece of advice, I’ve been reading a short story of Poirot before going to bed lately, yep reading about murders but sleeping all good, maybe give it a try hehe

          I think I remember most of my dreams and this one was just so weird, hard to forget really, LOL!

          Okay, next time, just make sure to arrive a bit earlier!

          Not sure it’s going to help but I’m going to try that, thank you. Maybe the murders in the book cancel out the ones in my dreams!

    I haven’t shared this with my husband yet, but he would say your dream was spot on. I think you know me. I’d totally be the first person to eat chocolate cake and I HATE TO SHARE. And I’m so sloppy, so getting it on a white couch sounds like par for the course too. And why do you have a white couch anyway!!!!???? When you guys have kids, that will be the first thing that gets ruined, 😂 . I think I was just breaking it in for you 😜. And yeah, that dream is totally about that. Let me be the first to congratulate you! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇

      I would totally spill coffee on that white couch. And ally, SHARE THE CAKE. Hmmph.

      And yeah, that was definitely what that dream was about.

      3
      2

        Coffee is not allowed on the white couch.. he had to give up “coffee on the couch” for keeping the couch so!

        And no, stop it.. though I know it can’t be.. I’ll still start freaking out!

      You’re telling me the dream you is actually you? You are the sloppy kind? I guess, I know you better than I thought I did!
      Also, that couch was his idea, he was so passionate about it so I let him have it!
      And no, really, it can’t be.. just.. way too soon! That dream is about us getting a cat, he’s been begging for a cat for a while now so I think I’m just going to go and get him a cat!

      4
      2

        Ah. So that’s why the cat batted at the egg and caused it to break. 🤔 verrrry interesting. When you get the cat, I will send it a pink party hat.

        1

        Sounds good, get a cat. You should get a white one because otherwise, your white couch will always have hair on it and it’ll drive you crazy. All my furniture is leather except for a chaise that has outdoor upholstery that’s cream colored that I’ve gotten everything that’s been spilled on it out. I’m really good at stain removal being the klutz I am. 😂. My husband married me for a lot of reasons, but gracefulness was not one of them. 😂

        1
        1

          If we’re getting a cat (haven’t really told him about it yet, I was very firm with my “No”, I want to be sure about this first) then it has to be a white one! A lot of our furniture is in light colors.. we clearly didn’t think this through!

          You need to teach me some of your stain removal hacks, you know, for the future! I’m still a little surprised, I didn’t think you’d be the clumsy type, LOL!

          1
          2

            Vinegar, water, baking soda and dish soap will get our 99% of fabric stains on colored fabric. Bleach for whites. Alcohol for ink. That will get you through most your life—lol.

            1
            0

            Oh, white is also good for you from the standpoint of not seeing the hair the cat sheds! Which will probably happen, although I have a 90% non shedder right now, just luck.
            azzo and SNG are getting a cat! Hooray for the cat!!! 😺

    That’s a weird albeit sweet dream I guess lol. I believe that dreams are usually about what is going on in your subconscious and real life and what you are thinking or bothered about much more than it being a sign of the future. Even if I know people study dreams and it may hint towards any future happening I still think it’s a lot about what’s already happening in our minds. So yes I guess you need to get a cat only if you wish.

      So beanies, cat, chocolate cake, egg..
      Maybe azzo needs to get a cat n bake a chocolate cake to celebrate it w beanies.

      I believe the same and a lot has been going on this passed week, I think I can actually make sense of a lot of that dream, beanies were just a fun addition, LOL!

    This is so hilarious, I love it! 💕💕💕

    I have to tell the twins that they appeared in @azzo1’ dream 🤣🤣 They will be so thrilled.

    And I agree with beanies, this is definitely a conception dream all right. Tell us the good news in 12-13 weeks’ time when the first trimester is over 💃🏻🕺🏻💃🏻

    Hm. Interesting.

    What raised my eyebrow (one only — it is a skill) are:

    1. @leetennant is there in your dream and she’s LAUGHING. LT doesn’t laugh, she’s indifferently blank-faced, it helps to keep HIM at bay — you know, her stalker…Lee Min Who.

    2. Your Oppa isn’t in your dream. Poor Oppa. Bye, Oppa.

    3. @bbstl is Catwoman. I suspected she wasn’t human many times. Her posts are ahem, littered with intricate symbols — convulated paws and disturbing cat faces which, on hindsight, pointed to her cattish? catlike? non-human links.

    The old man creeped me out. Eek.

Of course, this show wasn’t without its flaws but nothing really mattered in front of how cute it was!

        “if you ever get the time to watch it” I always have drama time (or I always make time for drama🙄) but it’s more I’m not in the mood for it right now any time soon ^^’

        I’m fine, thank you 🙂 , and you ?
        “you’ve been quiet recently” I’m actually checking the fanwall quite often (every 2 days or so , leaving upvotes and sometimes comments) , however I’m just posting final thoughts for shows I’ve finished as for now, the post for Dae Jang Geum took me quite some time 🥴
        On the other hand, I’m also trying to check discord (but even there I’m just making some short cameo ^^’), share some reactions for my variety shows even if it just means a few lines ^^’

It was hard watching this puppy’s heart break but I loved that once he realized that it was impossible he was quick on trying to get over it!

This was my first time watching Shin Hye-sun in a leading role and her Seo-ri was absolutely adorable. She made me believe that she was actually 17 and I felt so much for her, her awkwardness with her age and with everyone else’s was so much fun to watch!

About a week ago I was looking for something sweet to watch and Youtube just happened to recommend Thirty but Seventeen to me so I thought I’d give it a try and I’m so glad I did.

I loved this show!

It was cute and funny and nothing was forced or rushed or dragged, no grand plot twists, no great conflicts, no baddies. It was slow-paced and I don’t mean that in a bad way, just that it took its time to develop the characters and what it took for them to grow into the people they become. The characters learned to mature, to open up, to let go and to smile again, and it was all so very heartwarming to watch.

It was lovely from start to finish and it left me smiling and feeling all happy ❤

Also, this means a mini-spam (my first in ages, LOL).
Enjoy!

I grew up in a family of romantics where falling in love has always been celebrated like an achievement, where tales of love are told, poetry in the name of love is written and songs of love are sung.

Yet that kind of love, to me, seemed like such a foreign concept, so far away from who I am, unattainable. I’m good with checklists, guidelines, rules, and I was told that love doesn’t follow those. I’ve read that love meant change and chaos and those things absolutely terrify me. They said love is the language of words, new vocabularies, and I enjoy my silences.

The thought of it was so unsettling that I told myself I would never do it, I would never let it happen to me.. I was different, it was not me, it didn’t suit me.

But then .. he came along.

If you ask me why I said yes to him that day on the 25th of December 2019, I would tell you, in complete honesty, that I did it to make him stop looking at me. I actually, really, just wanted him to stop looking at me. Not because I hated it, because, I realized, no one has ever looked at me the way he did and it made me feel things I couldn’t understand. When beanies were making jokes of Christmas dates and hot chocolate, I was literally panic-googling how to do this (Yes, I needed a how-to list and no, it didn’t work!).

“It’s okay!” he said, when I told him about my rules and boundaries, about my “do’s” and “don’ts”, and about my “can’ts” and “won’ts”, I was not going into this unprepared, I told myself. “It’s okay. I understand!” he told me.

When he first confessed I asked him how he knew, I wasn’t doubting how he felt, I just needed to know if I felt the same. After all, I made my list and I needed to know if I could tick all the boxes (call me a fool but how else would I know?). I was not prepared for his answer, I didn’t expect that, nothing on my list was ticked. I cried that night, I cried a lot, and when he couldn’t figure out why I was crying I told him about my stupid list. He laughed then and asked me a series of questions, all to which my answer was yes. “It’s enough!” he said, “It really is!”, then he asked if he could hug me and I said yes to that, too. 

He taught me that there are no set guidelines for love, it isn’t hard, it doesn’t have to fit a mold, it isn’t same for everybody. No two people translate it the same, no two people feel it the same. He said love could mean chaos to some but to some it could be the order they need. And he told me that words are overrated and silences shared are the best way to love.

I still think I don’t know much, I still wonder if I’m doing it right.. but there is no right way he tells me.. so I guess, I’ll just fumble my way through love.

Love, February.

So.. my niece didn’t really like SNG before, she didn’t like that I left my parents’ home to go live with this new person who is “strange” and is “unnecessarily” tall. She would give him her best stink-eye whenever she saw him and once (or twice) she actually growled at him (he died at that and he thinks that’s the cutest thing someone that tiny can ever do!)

Recently, she’s been coming over a lot (for school purposes) and she finally started warming up to him. The other day they had a bonding moment (at my expence), I don’t know what exactly happened as I missed the start of it all but when I got there he’d made popcorn and they’re watching something on his phone.

Me: what are you two watching?
Him: how to make chocolate popcorn.
Her: it looks easy, next time make me chocolate popcorn!
Him: I will!
Her: you always give Azzo chocolate?
Him: I do.
Her: you never give me any!
Him: you don’t like me.
Her: Azzo likes you?
Him [laughs]: Yes. A lot, a lot!
Me: I never said a lot.. a lot!
Him [looks at me, says nothing]
Me: what? I never did!
Him [smiles]: why are you blushing?
Me: I’m not blushing!
Him: you are blushing! [Looks at her]: she’s blushing!
Her: she is very red! [Looks at me]: you are red like inside of a watermelon!
Him [laughs]
Her: She is like an apple!
Him [still laughing]
Her: She’s not like tomatoes, I don’t like tomatoes, tomatoes are too round! [Takes a moment to think]: You are too tall!
Him [dies laughing]

He kept laughing at everything she said and because of that she kept saying whatever that came to her mind. To conclude it all, I’m red like red socks and he’s tall like a sleeping girrafe (don’t ask me, I don’t get it either!).

Later I asked her if she liked him now and she said no. Then she told me maybe just a little bit and went: “Not a lot a lot like you!”

Love, February.

    Unnecessary tallness really is excessive, so I completely understand niece’s point. Or maybe I’m just jealous, but probably I’m just tired of having to look up.

      My niece thinks the only height acceptable is her dad’s and her dad is even shorter than me so I wouldn’t say SNG is excessively tall!

      He’s never interacted with kids before, he says he doesn’t know how to do this. The youngest kid in his whole family (including extended family) is an 18 year old!

Some time ago I was telling SNG that I was running out of sticky notes and that I needed him to go get me some, and how’s that a necessity I cannot live without (Yes, really, even way before him! I always have to have sticky notes with me, it’s an obsession.. and look where that got me!). The next day he went and bought me like 15 stacks of sticky notes, all yellow. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my yellow sticky notes but I also love me some colors and I told him that. He said he’d get me colored stacks later and days went by, he forgot, I forgot.

Today he had a meeting with us at our office (he’s been our client since last year), and I also had a meeting, a different one, and I told him to wait for me at my office when he’s done so I’d at least see him before he leaves. He sent me a text telling me that he finished a lot earlier and that he left already and he’d just see me at home .. I admit I was a bit disappointed.

But then I go to my office and I find this.

The notes say:
Your colored notes
All stolen. You’re welcome
If I get caught I will tell them I did it for love
Pray I don’t get caught

I’M DYING!
I can’t seem to get any work done now, I think I’m just going to go home and squish his face or something!

My dad planted SNG a mango tree!

So up until now my dad\’s been extremely awkward with SNG. He doesn\’t know how to act in front of him and he doesn\’t know what to say to him most of the times. I mean, he\’d greet him and they would exchange small talk when we\’re all around but leave them alone and the quiet will hurt your ears!

That\’s been making SNG very nervous because he thinks dad doesn\’t like him and he\’s not used to not being liked (Yes!), but that\’s not it.. it\’s just how my dad is. He doesn\’t get used to people quickly, he isn\’t very talkative and he doesn\’t know how to show affection (I know what you\’re thinking.. I am my dad!)

My dad\’s way of showing you he cares is asking you if you\’ve eaten, he loves to feed people and he\’d throw you a feast if he knows you\’re hungry. He\’s ultimate way of telling you he loves you though is planting you a tree, yes. I love bananas and I got a banana tree. My sisters love lemons and watermelons and they\’ve both got their trees. My dad\’s got little strawberry pots for my niece and nephews even when our weather doesn\’t allow strawberries to grow and he\’s made my mom a whole flower garden.

The other day I was talking to my mom, and my dad was just sitting there quietly, and I mentioned that SNG loves mangos and if that\’s what I\’d feed him for the rest of his life he\’ll still be happy. Dad said nothing then.. but today, my mom told me, that he went and bought him a little mango plant and he planted it next to my banana tree!

SNG gets his own tree, dad loves him!
I\’M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE 😭❤

    We also have some banana trees at our house and we just got their fruits some days ago. Now waiting for them to ripen a little bit more before we eat them.

    Sweet, yellow mangoes are the best. These two trees are probably my favorite ones (but I prefer flowers to trees 😊)

    And yes, of it wasn’t you, it was me who teared up. Your hubby is adored by his father-in-law and that’s one sweet thing.

      My dad actually re-plants the banana tree every few years, I don’t know what is the process exactly but I do know that he lets it die once it bears fruits because I think once it does it won’t again!

      There was actually another little plant growing next to my banana tree and dad moved it to so he could plant the mango.. that is the sweetest thing 😭

        Your dad is so sweet 😊. About banana trees, I believe my uncle who is actually very good with planting things once told me something similar to what your dad does. I believe it’s the normal life span of the banana trees.

        The only negative thing about banana trees are that once they bear fruits, there will be so many all at once! And we need to think of ways to use them. 😅. That requires some brain power.

    Awww, My dad and I are similar on how we express our feelings. We write each other poems on birthdays and we hug a lot too. I guess each person has their own unique way of showing love and him planting SNG’s mango tree next to your banana’s is enough proof for him. So sweet!

Last week, we\’re sitting at the dinner table, eating quietly. I look at his plate and he\’s done already, I look at him and he\’s looking at me and grinning. I ask him what it is and he goes: \”I love this!\”.

I slide my plate toward him and tell him to have more, he laughs, slides it back to me and goes again: \”I love this.. I LOVE THIS!\”. He gets up and puts both his hands on my head and I\’m confused. He shakes my head and laughs to himself (A move I don\’t understand and to be completely honest I\’m kind of creeped out!), then he looks at me and goes: \”I love being married to you!\”.

Today he catches me smiling to myself and asks me what it is and I tell him that I love being married to him too. He tells me it only took me a week to say something like that back to him this time and I tell him I\’m a quick learner.

Today is the happiest I\’ve ever seen him!

Also, I only just now realized that we\’re in February.. how even.. where did all the days go?

Oh, well.. Love, February!

Happy New Year Beanies 🎆🥳

Last year with all that it brought, with all that it was, the good and bad, is gone. I\’m here, you\’re here, we\’re here, that\’s enough. Remember that you made it and that this itself deserves a pat on the back and that you all did well!

I wish this year brings with it peace and health to all of you. I wish it\’s filled with love and laughter, and lots and lots of beautiful sunrises.

Be kind to yourselves, be the amazing people you guys are and be happy Always ❤

    I’m not sure you’d notice it but I tripped taking this video and it almost became my first fall of 2021. If gifs had sounds you’d hear SNG going “Careful!” and then laughing his head off 😅

      Hahaha knowing that you almost fell makes this even better. I’m so glad to see ocean, beach and sunrise from your part of the world. (We are having an ice storm.)

Happy Sticky Note Anniversary to me 🎆
Yes, a year ago today this happened!

This changed my life in ways that I could have never even imagined and not in a million years would I have believed you then if you\’d told me that we\’d be here today. Like, I\’m sitting here and writing this and he\’s right here in front of me, making his 3rd (probably 4th?) cup of coffee of the day because he\’s addicted and I know that because I\’m married to him.. I MARRIED HIM!

I remember you beanies went wild when I posted about it the first time and I called you guys crazy for telling me to go get the note back (Sorry for that!) but it all did sound so crazy to me. I knew for sure -at the time- that I was not going to get it back because I didn\’t see any reason to it, I wasn\’t going to call him, why would I do that? He was just some guy I found in my office, who looked at me weird with his pretty hazel-green eyes and smiled at me with that curved smile of his and made me very very nervous, but when he left that was it. THE END. I thought nothing of it, not until I came home and talked to my sister and not until I talked to you beanies. And even then I didn\’t know what to think of it, it was not like I was going to see him again, he wasn\’t coming back, why would he even do that? But of course he did, he came back and I totally freaked out!

I remember that day when I went to meet him outside of work for the first time, I didn\’t tell anyone at all, my sisters didn\’t know about it and I only told them when I got back, and to say they were shocked is an understatement. I mean, even I, myself, was in disbelief, I kept saying things to myself like \”I\’m not actually doing this!\”.. \”I\’m not going!\”.. \”No, it\’s not me!\”.. and that while getting ready, putting my shoes on, driving myself to where he was. Going out to meet him like that felt exciting but also so very scary that at every single traffic light I\’d tell myself that I\’d take a U-turn and go back home. When I got there, I sat in my car for half an hour trying to process this whole thing, what it all meant FOR ME to be doing this, I\’ve never ever, EVER, done that before and I was trying to convince myself that I was only doing it because I was curious but why was I curious? I shrieked at that thought, I jumped, I cringed and I made all sorts of gagging noises.. yeah! (No one was around at that parking lot but if you ever find a video on the internet of a girl doing all of that.. it\’s probably me!)

He smiled at me when he saw me and I don\’t think I smiled back because my head was going: \”OMG! What do I do now?\” He greeted me and thanked me for agreeing to meet him and I told myself to act normal and say something in reply but I didn\’t know how to act normal and I didn\’t know what to say in reply. I stood there, silently panicking, because I realized I lost my ability to speak and that my mind was completely blank. He didn\’t say anything either, he just looked at me and you don\’t do that to me, you don\’t look at me like that. I didn\’t know what to do with myself, I didn\’t know how to stand, I didn\’t know where to look and I was trying not to look at him because I was not going to make this into a staring game (Which we had a plenty of later 🤭). My cheeks were burning and my eyebrows were sweating and my lips went dry and my stomach was doing the craziest of flips but HE WOULDN\’T DROP HIS EYES!

This went on for some time and then he went: \”You\’re nervous!\”.. \”I\’m not!\” I said and that was the first thing I said to him and it was an obvious lie and he knew it. He told me I was shaking, I told him I get cold easily, he just looked at me so I told him it was cold (It was very cold, I swear!). He smiled and it felt too overwhelming at that moment so I asked him to stop smiling, he said sorry and stopped (HE REALLY DID), then I realized how silly I was being so I apologized and told him that I was really very nervous and that he could go back to smiling if he wanted to (I REALLY DID). He laughed and my head went: \”RUN!\” .. I didn\’t.. and the rest is history, I guess! 

I still don\’t know what he saw of me at that conference and what kind of an impression he got of me that day, I\’m not exactly known as someone who leaves very good first impressions on people, you see, but whatever it was I\’m just very glad that it was enough for him to think of me and come see me again. I do ask him about it but he just shrugs and he never really gives me an answer, he did say this once though: \”If you\’re expecting something like in the movies where I see you and sunshine floods my soul, that\’s not it!\”.. I asked him if time didn\’t slow down, music didn\’t start in the background, breeze didn\’t play with my hair, he laughed at this and then went: \”What breeze? We were indoors!\”.. Being indoors never stopped the breeze from playing with Dong-baek\’s hair when Yong-shik found her but fine, I\’ll just believe that sunshine did actually flood his soul then!

So yes, happy first sticky-note anniversary to me and you. Thank you for walking into my office that day and thank you for becoming my Sticky Note Guy. Life would\’ve been so very different had you not laid your eyes on me, had you not set your heart on finding me that day. I\’m not going to say I was unhappy before you because that\’s not true but, my God, with you everything is that much more better, with you I\’m that much more happier. It might\’ve not been a drama moment for you, you might not be a drama hero for me, I mean, you\’re no Oppa (Please never find this, please!) but for me it just had to be you and you know it too, and I\’m guilty for not saying it enough but I end up crying whenever I do. Thank you for not thinking me a fool whenever that happens and for allowing me to be that volunerable with you, what I feel for you is beyond any one word I can say, it\’s beyond anything I can ever do. Thank you for being my first anything and everything and thank you for making my heart grow 😭❤

      Send lots and lots of rain, just maybe not today because we’re going kayaking and I’m the biggest coward when it comes to water-activities like that (I can’t swim!), I’m already worried about the kayak flipping over, he told me I’d be wearing a life-jacket so I asked him what happens if I slip out of the life-jacket and he just laughed!

      Someone please tell me what happens if I slip out of that life-jacket!!!

    I wasn’t on dramabeans a year ago, so reading your story for the first time made my heart do flips, the same way it does when I watch a scene like this in a drama! Your hair may not have been ruffled by the breeze, but your description was no less evocative and swoon-inducing!😁

    Congratulations on your one year sticky-note-iversary! May your marriage be filled with laughter, contentment, excellent teamwork and that little bit of magic!

    P.S. zip and buckle up that life jacket so it’s nice and snug. You will not slip out of it if it’s worn correctly, so you can feel safe and enjoy the scenery!☀️🌳🌺

      Aww! Welcome to DB and thank you for enjoying this! Actually, breeze can’t really play with my hair when I’m out in public because I’m a hijabi but I enjoy annoying him like that 🤭

      And I didn’t slip out of that life-jacket because I made sure he was buckling it up really tight (“it’s okay if it crushes my ribs just make sure I don’t slip out of it”)

      Thank you 💛

        Ah, I just love this additional detail about your story (the impossibility of breeze in hair)! And it makes it so much sweeter that this is how you tease each other!💗💕

        I think the question of “what did you see in me / what attracted you to me?” is such an interesting one. I’m the one in my relationship who made the first move, and in a way it didn’t feel like a “choice” with a particular reason, so much as it was like a coming together of lots of different things at a specific point in time, and before I knew it, these words that I’d never spoken aloud to anyone else came out of my mouth. It wasn’t a smooth ride or an easy journey from that point onwards, but we’ve been very lucky to have found each other.

        Yay! How was your first kayaking experience? Glad you were safely buckled in!😋

        1
        1

          LOL, thank you!

          Nothing came from me at first, it was all him, I actually posted about our first meeting and first few dated on DB, I’ve deleted those posts but beanies would tell you how freaked out I was with everything, they were my support-system and I tell them this all the time I kind of owe it to them that we’re here today!

          It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be, this one was a sunset kayaking so next time (there is a next time!!) we’re planning for a sunrise kayaking!

So, umm.. I burned my mouth and don\’t ask me how that happened because I\’m going to tell you anyway 😅

I was making dinner last night and I got distracted for a few minutes with something else, forgetting my steel-ladle in the pan. When I realized that, I was like: \”Okay, that\’s going to be hot!\”, so I wore a glove to lift it because that\’s the smart thing to do, but what\’s not the smart thing to do is lifting the ladle and then licking it, YES! I don\’t know why my head went: \”Lick it!\” I don\’t know why it didn\’t register the fact that I was actually wearing a glove to not burn my hand and why it didn\’t think that it could also be hot enough to burn my lips and my tongue, like really WHY?

That second of contact was so excruciatingly painful that I couldn\’t even scream, I dropped the ladle of course, but then I kind of didn\’t know what to do, I think I was trying to understand what just happened and how stupid I can be sometimes, really, who does that?! I spent last night trying to soothe the burn on my tongue (rinsing my mouth with cold water, eating ice and having lots and lots of banana milk) and I forgot my lips in the process. I woke up today to what looks like I got an upper-lip filler, I already have a resting duck-face (I\’ve always been so very self-conscious about that!) and this just looks ridiculous. A certain someone doesn\’t think it looks so bad, he says it actually looks pretty (pretty might not be the word he used 🙈) but he\’s a fool and I told him that and he went: \”Says the one with a burned mouth!\”.. well, hard to argue with that!

I\’m meeting my friends today and I\’ve never been happier for wearing a mask before, if they see me like this the jokes they\’ll make and the picture they\’ll take (because, yes, they\’ll definitely take pictures, I\’m a sight to behold to be honest 😂), they\’re just going to make fun of me for the rest of my life. Also, I know you\’re all smarter than me and you\’d probably never do that but I\’m still going to say it .. NEVER DO THAT, no matter how tempting it might look.. just don\’t!

    Hi. If your tongue and lips hurt a lot, you can try applying powdered sugar over them. I’ve heard it helps

    Oh no! I feel for you, having just burned my tongue on some bulgogi. Plus I know just what you’re saying about the masks, I fell on my face in June and had two black eyes and a bruise on my chin the size of a beard, I was never so glad to be wearing a mask. I hope the pain goes away soon! I’m sure I don’t know how people in kdramas eat food that is literally boiling at the table.

      I remember you told me about your fall back then and it still sounds just as bad, and really, going aound explaining how you got the brusies is itself a pain, so masks are a blessing in times like these!

So, SNG tested negative (Thank God) and that makes me negative too but we decided to keep ourselves quarantined for 10 more days just to be safe before going out to the world, however little we might actually be doing that. The guy who called to tell us the result was in a very good mood, he was so loud and chirpy, I wasn\’t even that close when SNG answered his phone but I could still here him, he was like: \”Good morning, Sir, how are you today? How is the Mrs?/ Your test results are out, Sir, do you think it\’s negative or positive?/ Come on, make a guess, Sir!\” and this was so funny because SNG was not in a mood for guesses but he didn\’t want to be rude so he told him he might be negative and the guy went: \”Are you positive about that, Sir?\” .. I wish I could actually describe the look on his face at that!

I\’m usually the one who freaks out (I think you all know that already), but this time I was the calm one and he was the one on the edge of panic. I\’m considered a high-risk person so he was really worried about bringing the virus home, he was so alert and he\’d notice every little \”change\” in me, \”That\’s not your usual red!\” and \”Your hands are a bit too cold!\” and \”Why are you coughing like that?\” But that was my usual red and the weather is really chilly these days and I had a bit too much icecream. He might\’ve said some not so nice things about his coworker (Yes, SNG can say not so nice things too!) but then he felt guilty about it and called him to ask how his parents were doing (When I tell you he\’s the sweetest!)

Anyways, we\’re really relieved that not only SNG but all his coworkers tested negative too, even those who got on an elevator with that guy, so that\’s good news and we heard that their company will take some kind of a disciplinary action against him, and because what he did is also a crime in my part of the world he\’ll have to pay a fine for it and if he does anything like this again he\’ll be jailed.. so serves him right.

        I was giggling while reading this, thought I could quote Jane Austen to thank you again for sharing your love stories with us 😘
        (but also don’t feel obliged to share private things again ^^’)

        “ You are inimitable, irresistible. […] Such letters, such entertaining letters, as you have lately sent! such a description of your queer little heart! […] You are worth your weight in gold, or even in the new silver coinage. I cannot express to you what I have felt in reading your history of yourself — how full of pity and concern, and admiration and amusement, I have been! You are the paragon of all that is silly and sensible, commonplace and eccentric, […] and lively, provoking and interesting. Who can keep pace with the fluctuations of your fancy, the capprizios of your taste, […] ? You are so odd, and all the time so perfectly natural! — so peculiar in yourself, and yet so like everybody else ! ”

        (Jane Austen’s letter to her niece Fanny, February 20, 1817)

      (And it’s really hard trying to argue with people like these 🤦🏻‍♀️)

      I think we only went out for like 4 times since the wedding, not counting visits to our parents, so that’s all what we’ve been doing really, self-quarantining I mean ☺️

So, yesterday was a day off but SNG got a call from work and had to go to his office for a meeting, it lasted for 4 hours and he was planning to go visit his parents after it but he got too lazy so he came back home thinking he\’d just go today (We\’re both really glad that he didn\’t go!). Today, first thing in the morning, he got another call from work, not for a meeting but to tell him to quarantine himself because one of the guys in that meeting tested positive for Covid19.

This itself is bad but you know what is worse, the guy knew he\’ll probably have it because 2 days before he went and did the test. He was supposed to be self-isolating himself while waiting for his results but apparently he doesn\’t care and he was like \”Let\’s go to this meeting and infect some more people!\”, and if you\’re not already angry just wait till you know how he got it. He went visiting his friend who he KNEW had Covid19 because why not, right? And if you think things can\’t get worse than this, think again.. he lives with his parents and, yes, he\’s infected them both!

Seriously, this makes me so angry, what\’s wrong with some people? No regard for other people\’s lives, no conscious, no sense of responsibility, no guilt, NOTHING! SNG tells me the people who attended the meeting are all fairly healthy but still you never know with this thing, we hear stories and there is no guarantee! If you don\’t care about your colleagues that\’s something but what about your own parents? How can anyone be like this? Why act like you\’re invincible? Why be this stupid? This is so frustrating!

This is not just about you, stop being selfish, people\’s lives are at stake here! Wear your masks, follow all the safety guidelines, quarantine and self-isolate when you have to and when you\’re told and please let\’s just all be responsible!

Also, let\’s pray and hope that everyone who attended that meeting doesn\’t get it and they\’re all safe and healthy, because they went back to their families and this is just not fair or right, really!

    I think it stems from the mentality that it’s no big deal. I have no idea why people need to be so hospitable and efficient in Covid, you visiting a patient, attending a relative’s wedding or going to work when you doubt you may be sick, can all wait. But all of a sudden in covid everyone is just way more hospitable. I think young people do think it isn’t a big deal but I’ve heard of young people getting knee and body pains and breathing issues AFTER they have been cured of Covid. So we don’t even have any idea as of yet what amount of destruction it does to the body. The longer it has lasted, the less seriously are people taking it now. Hopefully everyone else didn’t catch it because of him. Also I wish his parents and him well. And I hope you two are taking care too.

    1

      But that’s what I don’t get, how can you think it’s no big deal when people are actually dying? My cousin is 25 he got it about 2 months ago, he’s never had a health-related issue before and he follows a healthy life-style, but even he says he never wants anyone to go through what he went through in that period, the body aches and the shivers and the fever, he’s cured now but he’s still not got his sense of smell and taste back and his body still feels tired!

      Yes, hopefully no one does, the guy himself doesn’t feel anything but a headache but I’m worried about his parents, I hope they’ll be alright. Thank you, we are, SNG’s asked to do a test in two days so we could be sure, let’s hope it’s negative!

        “1.I’m invincible 2. Covid will only eliminate bad people (this tbh is so ridiculous, I’ve heard of the best people passing away through covid and if anything it’s the opposite because day to day bad happenings tell me that all bad people are perfectly fine, still doing their criminal activities and still have no regard for a virus that can kill them any moment when they’re recklessly harming other humans), 3. Even if it happens to me I’m young so I’ll only be scratched and become a survivor. 4. People who say they got badly affected or passed away must have some other issues”.
        These are few of the thoughtless reasons people give themselves to assure that they will be protected anyway so its fine, not taking any precautions is totally fine. It’s not good at all for people of any age but unfortunately i don’t see elders putting in much care either, neither do many govts such as mine are taking things seriously. If I step out of the house rn, noone on the street would be wearing a mask, the disregard for anything is so high, they don’t care anymore just because it didn’t affect them when the very first wave started.
        Hope everything remains well and SNG’s test comes out negative.

          Also idk how is the news coverage in your area, but here it’s next to nothing. According to them it’s good to not panic the poeople but what it’s doing is that its making it careless. Also the sentence structure chosen by news organizations to rwport deaths adds an insensitivity to the subject. If you say there were 200 deaths from covid today rather than 200 people died from covid today, the subject becomes very insensitive and such news gets old when people are treated just as a number.

          That is so bizarre, in my place we get daily coverage, masks are mandatory and we have SOPs for distancing yada2 but thanks to a certain political move our numbers have risen for the past two months. It’s still somewhat under control but people are still scared albeit adapting to the new norm and carrying on with life. So when i hear about places that have crazy high numbers daily and the people are still going about like nothing’s happening – i just wonder what’s in their head.

            Where do you live? I should shift there 😅
            Honestly covid has revealed a lot about how much governments would care about the people, how the people of a nation act and are disciplined or not and how much do people care about others and their own lives (they don’t even care about theirs, many people put work and hospitality above their own safety, that is also directly proportional to how pressuring the society is in making people care less about their own life and tagging along with others first) . Needless to say I’m disappointed and sometimes even in myself. I may be the sore thumb now but how long will it take till I conform like most.

          Honestly, they’ve been covering it pretty heavily here. The government’s been doing everything possible to spread awareness about it, masks are mandatory, beaches are closed again, all sorts of gatherings aren’t allowed, some cities are still in lockdown, some businesses are still closed, companies are working on shifts or 50% of their staff and the rest work from home, we had a curfew that they only lifted last week, a lot has been done and they’re still doing a lot but some people just don’t want to follow rules. I just heard about a wedding that had over 100 guests!!! They were caught though and now their names and pictures will be all over social media and all news outlets and every single person who attended will have to pay a fine!

            It’s great to hear that there is some strictness in your region. And even though I usually don’t appreciate public shaming for small mistakes, this isn’t a small one so that’s a good step to prevent others from doing that.

            The public shaming only started from this month really and only after getting multiple complaints about people holding big gatherings. They did make sure that everyone knew they were going to do this, we got messages on our phones telling us about it!

    Some days ago there was a free screening in my city, but my friend (a biology teacher) said she wouldn’t go, because “it will only lead to chaos if people know they have the virus. It’s only normal that it will become endemic”. What?? And she has two little daughters and old parents.

    Oh good grief, the stories you hear about how irresponsible people are being 🤦🏼‍♀️ . I’ve heard so many tales of people who’ve been tested because they think they’re sick and then continue to go out until the results come back. DUH. I’m so sorry you guys have been exposed by this idiot coworker, and so glad SNG didn’t end up visiting his parents. At this time, we have to think for ourselves AND for others and it’s best to lay low. If they can’t keep themselves at home, at least I can keep myself there.

      I don’t understand why are some people like this though! Here when you get tested positive they give you a tracking bracelet to make sure you’re staying home but some people take them off at home and go out, they really do that!

      Thank you, that’s what we’ve been doing, we’ve been keeping safe and being extra careful and taking all the precautions. Both SNG and I have been working from home and this is his first time going back to the office after the wedding and this happened, it makes him that much more angry that we’ve been exposed to it by someone that careless!

        That’s much more serious than what we have, everyone is on the “honor” system. They should figure out how to put a tattoo on their foreheads that disappears in two weeks, like the scarlet A in the story. Everyone here is so sensitive that their LIBERTY is being encroached upon, for crying out loud with that kind of attitude we never would have made it through WWII. I read that when Europe locked down, they had about 95% compliance but here in the States it never really got better than 50%.

        2
        1

          Everyone here actually prefers a complete lockdown, they did a survey and more than 97% said so. The tracking bracelet wasn’t only for the infected it was helpful for us too, you download an app and when you’re out it would send you notifocations whenever someone with Covid is around, sadly, people aren’t using it as they should!

    Today I’ve learned my city is in lockdown until next Tuesday: no one coming in or going out. My dad lives only 15 km from me but it’s another town, so we are staying at our homes and not seeing each other this weekend as we had planned. Meetings are only allowed for people who live together and as I live alone all I can do is being alone or go for a walk alone. And guess what? I’m doing it! Because that’s the one thing I can do for others. Do I like it? NOOOOO. I want to see my dad, but I’m staying home.
    It’s not that complicated, really. I can do it. Anyone can do it.
