2018 was a year of more hardships, more adjustments and a whole lot of change. It’s due to this ‘backlog’ that I only post my reflection of my 2018 now, rather than over 3 months ago. Through this year, I’ve truly learnt and understood the role I take as a ‘working-adult’ who is expected to contribute back to society in its own way. Let me explain. Continue reading

Goodbye 2017, I’m welcoming 2018 with open arms
2017 was a year of change, hardships and adjusting. Through this year, I’ve understood what many describe their first year out of uni to be like: daunting, frightening and just downright nerve-racking. I was always doubtful about it ever happening to me, but it sure hit me hard.
My Reflection on Life as a 21 year old moving onto 22
Every year, I try to make a personal post around the time of my birthday to re-evaluate myself and reflect on the year as myself in life and not only the Hyunnie known on Asia Reviewer Maniac.
Much like last year, fears and worries still exist for little me, and so this post still presents itself today. If you want to check out what I wrote this time last year, check it out here.
My Life in Reflection at 20 going on 21
This is going to be a post that is quite different from what I have done in the past. As I use this blog predominantly as a place for expressing my interests that I love sharing with others, I never venture into anything too personal as I sometimes feel that is almost…unnecessary? As in, this blog was created out of the love I had for kpop and dramas, and I had thought that it should stay that way.
But for today, I wanted to kind of share some personal issues I have with myself, and I hope that this post may be of some assistance to others, whatever your struggles or problems may be. Continue reading
What I’ve Been Up To Lately: Life And Drama Update
Hey ya’ll! How’s it going?? Me? A lot actually, both in life and in drama-land actually. Initially, I was planning to do a post solely about a particular drama I’m currently watching, but then I had realised that I was taking too long to do it. If I feel like it, maybe I’ll do recaps about it or something however for now, I think you all deserve an explanation for what has been happening in my life so far, and why have I gone MIA for the last 2 weeks or so.
So firstly, as I may have stated in another post previously, I am currently moving out of my current home (with the family) to a new one. The main issue was the fact that we didn’t choose to move out; we’ve been forced out of our current place in order for the house to be redone and resold to someone else. Since that happened, my family and I have been house hunting for weeks, and doing nothing else but. Just a couple of days ago, we had finally settled ourselves with a place, and are currently in the process of selling furniture, packing things up and organising the house in order to make sure that nothing is left behind. It’s been fun to actually discover things that I never knew existed (or find things that I never knew I had). I’m sure many of you probably understands that feeling but for me, it is foreign yet refreshing.
So, for the past two weeks or so, my house has transformed to a place piled with boxes left, right and centre containing my entire life that I had grown up knowing and loving. My life has been entirely turned upside down, and my mind has been just frazzled and unable to think and write anything. Hence the lack of posts and motivation to do anything but just pack and make sure that I get ready for university which starts in the next two weeks or so. I do apologise that I haven’t been posting anything; hopefully once I move into my new place, and get under way with uni, I will be more organised and consistent with my posts. It sucks that I haven’t been able to write anything lately however, I wish to provide you with the best that I can do, rather than just anything that comes to mind just for the sack of posting something.
Anyway, the purpose of this post (apart from the obvious) was to actually inform you as to what I have been watching, what I’ve been checking out and finally what I have been following about to the point of pure madness…let’s start, shall we??
I’M BACK!!! *spirit fingers* With a new start and new perspective for 2014!
Soooooo I am back from my much needed holiday to the Gold Coast!!! *Crackers and streamers go off* Yes, yes I am well aware that you have all missed me a lot (cough cough) but now I have returned, with a brain full of nothing and a body covered in a slight tan that makes me look more unhealthy then I really was :S
…This is going to be a great start to the new year, huh?
So, what I had wanted to do with this post is introduce to you all some of the new things I intend to do on this site in the coming future cause it’s time to start fresh and new, right?? Also, I want to list down my own personal goals for the new year because it is time to get yourself together Hyunnie!
Alright, so how this will work: two titles – Asia Review Maniac Goals for 2014 and Yami Hyunnie Goals for 2014. Each will list the goals I want to achieve for the year, and hopefully I will return and cross off which ones I have done on this post. If not, then a montage of the goals achieved may be made into some sort of post, and then linked here. Let’s just go with the flow, shall we?
So, let’s start!
Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!
Hello everyone! Wow, it’s been ages since I last did a photo challenge. I do apologise, and in all honesty, I feel absolutely guilty about it ><
So, here are my entries for this week!
This first photo was taken in the library on the 8th floor at my university. Bored as hell from the countless pages of readings, I was inspired to actually take a moment and ponder upon the view which I had totally ignored.
The next photo was actually taken the next day, after my girly cravings kicked in early in the morning. Green tea latte with waffles drizzled with chocolate sauce? Why the hell not?
So, I hope you all enjoyed this week’s entry, and I will be back next week with my next one (hopefully!)
❤ Yami Hyunnie ^^~
Love life, and be yourself :)
Alright, this post is going to be a little different from usual. I haven’t really spoken out just about life in general for a while now, so I just wanted to speak out for a little bit to “relieve some tension within myself” that has been cooped up for a while now.
10 things I’ve learnt from the HSC
Hi everyone!! This is a post that is dedicated to those who are going to take their HSC exams in about a month’s time, and for those who are going into their last year of high school, and are preparing themselves for the BIG year ahead. These ten tips are things that worked out for me, and I hope that you all find it just as useful.
Let’s Start! (By the way, they are in no particular order, kind of…)
Such a Rush” – Book Review Rant: Are these kids only 18 years old?!!!!!
Hi guys! I’m back with another book review! This time I had finished reading the book “Such a Rush” by Jennifer Echols. To be honest, I had finished this book a while ago (last week that is) but I didn’t have the time to type up something about it. So, forgive me if there are some things that aren’t quite clearly mentioned within this review/rant.
Yes, you saw that right – a rant. Which means…
SPOILER ALERT!!! And there is LOTS OF THEM!
