Quick update: cruising, reading and binge-watching

So, of course, after all those posts with specific purposes, I owe you an absolute mess of an update, since that’s what I’ve been doing with my blog for months and that’s what you have come to expect of me. So here I am.


First update: Somehow (really, don’t ask me how) I am halfway done with my degree.

I reached 50% of my PharmD: I never thought I would reach this milestone so fast. I only have one year left of my didactic studies, after which I’ll work my ash off. I think this is the first actual break I have had ever since I started pharmacy school and I have really stopped to think: holy shirt how is this possible? I am honestly so proud of myself for coming this far. Especially, if you read my past posts, I had no idea what I would do with my life until my second year of my undergrad.

Gente, llegamos al 50% 💃🏻

I went on a cruise with my friends.

That’s something I never thought I would ever do (I went on a cruise when I was way younger and my experience was not the best in terms of motion sickness), but here we were. It has been one of the most fun experiences I have ever gone through in my life. Going to piano bars? Listening to talented singers perform every night? Eating delicious food?

I am so glad I was able to do this with my classmates, as this is something we will remember for the rest of our lives, hopefully.

A stray thought: I can’t believe I’ve hopped on a plane more times in a year than I have my whole life. (hopefully I’ll be able to do it even more once I actually graduate and earn money O.o)

Another stray thought: Non-drowsy Dramamine is BS

As for reading (I had written “I am a disappointing mess on a previous draft”)

I finished Vengeful and Love and Other Words, two of the books I had started months ago. But the one I actually want to mention is Kingdom of Exiles.

Mo gave it a glowing recommendation and, as I tweeted this:

 

I HAD to read it. And it was so good! The whole plot was amazing, and I always needed to know what would happen next. I buddy read it with Lee, and theorizing, screaming and fangirling with her was so much fun! I hope I can get to do it again when Frozen Prince comes out!

I’m currently waiting for Soul of Stars to come out and suffer.

Now, for the update you were (not) waiting for: TV and K-dramas!

I watched the entirety of Fleabag in a day. (Not going to lie- I watched it because of a specific Andrew Scott Tumblr giftset my friend sent me) And it was so much more than I expected! Quality comedy that can also make me cry.

Good Omens: My current obsession: I shall spend my whole life trying to get everyone to watch the masterpiece of Michael Sheen and David Tennant playing an angel and a demon, respectively. Plus, it was written by Neil Gaiman: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, PEOPLE?!

As for K-dramas:

-I’M IN LOVE WITH KIM JAE WOOK. Her Private Life wasn’t full of a mind-blowing plot or whatever, but it’s so cute and fangirly and my expectations for men kept skyrocketing.

Angel’s Last Mission: Love– It’s so cute and my mom says it looks like City of Angels and if it is, I’ll cry. A LOT. But meanwhile I’ll have fun with their cute and amazing acting kbye. (And the plot is amazing, and I’m scared of how it will end. *cries*)

-And the one I love the most right now: Search: WWW. It’s such a feminist K-drama. Every single misogynistic trope is turned around, and I am living to see three powerful women take over the world. ❤

As for miscellaneous obsessions:

Lore Olympus owns my life right now. That’s all I’ll say. ❤

 

Anyhow, here is your mess of an update! Hope you enjoyed it!

Bye, bye, 2018 (Part 2: TV Shows!)

Hi, everyone! I decided to post recaps back to back, because if I didn’t the posts would be waaaaay too long

Still- Part 2 of my bye bye 2018 series will be about my favorite TV Shows I watched this year.  (Mainly K-dramas, of course! One of them is ongoing and you should watch it ASAP!)


 

Korean Dramas (Because they deserve their own heading)

While You Were Sleeping

Resultado de imagen para while you were sleeping

This one came out last year, but I watched it on 2018 because… well… electricity came back last January. This drama was so beautiful, and its soundtrack was perfect. It’s about a woman who can see the future in her dreams… and a man who can see her in his. It’s VERY confusing at first, I’m warning you! But the story was amazing, and all loose ends were tied at the end. I loved it so much, and I hope you do it too ❤

Thirty But Seventeen

Even thinking about this one makes me emotional. It is about a woman who falls into a coma when she’s 17 and wakes up as a 30 year old woman. She lost 13 years of her life, and has no idea where her family or friends are. She finds this family, and this man who has certain traumas of his own, and they help each other. I plan on rewatching soon! It was amazing and beautiful and perfect and I’m crying ❤

The Beauty Inside

I watched this one because I loved the movie so much. I’m warning you, it only shares a minimal part of the movie’s plot. In case you don’t know, The Beauty Inside is about a woman who changes her appearance for a week, once a month. She meets this man who can’t recognize anyone’s face. It was a bit lighter than the movie, but if I’m honest, I liked that. Of course it had it’s dramatic moments (every kdrama does) but everything from its soundtrack to its plot was feel-good and I’m hoping you enjoy it. 🙂

Memories of the Alhambra

Resultado de imagen para memories of the alhambra

This one, it’s ongoing people. It’s on Netflix. And as soon as they announced it (Hyun Bin + Park Shin Hye + Spain) I was in. I couldn’t wait, and once it came out I was hooked. Explaining the plot is… difficult. A CEO travels to Granada looking for an augmented reality game’s creator… but it is so much more than that. But trust me, although it is confusing as hell, it’s worth it. (or… I hope so. :D) Every single week you are left with more questions than answers, but it is so satisfying when you find out one more piece of information! Anyhow, I believe everyone should at least give it a chance.

Other, not Korean TV shows I watched this year 🙂

The Good Place

I have already gushed about this TV show here, and it’s still as amazing as I first started it. I’m hoping they can keep their streak, because I’m in love with every single one of the main characters, and their development. (Especially Michael… but well… it’s because of Ted Danson :3)

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Resultado de imagen para brooklyn nine nine

I’m SO GLAD it was saved by NBC! Look, I never thought I would enjoy a show about a police station but they did it. I am so invested on these characters. I want to know what will happen with Captain Holt, Boyle, Rosa, Gina, Terry and my OTP: Peraltiago. ❤ They deserve THE WORLD. And I’m so glad NBC is giving them the promotion they deserve.


Honorary Mentions:

  1. Lucifer: I’m so glad Netflix saved it! It’s actually a show I enjoy watching, and THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IS AMAZING!
  2. My Hero Academia: I already mentioned it, I believe. But this anime gave me LIFE. And I can’t believe I have to wait until October for next season.
  3. Sword Art Online: Alicization: Listen- I know people hate SAO. BUT THIS SEASON IS AMAZING. If you haven’t, please give this season a chance. ❤

A new update: IPPEs and Taylor Swift

Hello, my dear followers who I haven’t really spoken to in a while O.o (!!!)

How are you? How are you doing? -you probably will not answer these in the comments, it’s fine. *cue the crying*

My second year of pharmacy school is about to begin -I know. Shocking- and I wanted to catch you up with what’s happening in my life.


IPPE Community (aka my first practice experience)

How can I say this? I learned so much during my three weeks practice experience. I don’t think anyone truly knows what happens behind a pharmacy counter, except for the ones working there. Honestly? I couldn’t have been more blessed with my placement.

They were so nice and patient with my questions and my inexperience. They were willing to teach me, and I wish they knew how much I appreciate this. My preceptor, the technicians and the other pharmacists working there: I love you, and I want you to know I had lots of fun and that I hope that my future site of work has a similar environment.

rep tour!

If you follow me anywhere, in any social media -Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat (@fearlesslynat) -you’ll know that THIS HAPPENED.

I MUST BE DREAMING #reptouratlantanight2 #reptouratlanta

A post shared by natalie 🐬 (@fearlessly.nat) on

Somehow, thanks to a friend who lives there (Shoutout to Ashley!!) I was able to attend the reputation tour. Even as I’m writing this, I keep believing it was a beautiful dream. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see the wristband, my t-shirt and the pictures on my phone.

Honestly, if a few months ago you had told me that I would travel on my own to see my favorite artist on her biggest tour to date, I would have said you were joking. I’d been wanting to see her for 9 years, and I had stopped hoping for a while.

Still- it happened, and I have the evidence to prove it. ❤

My current obsessions:

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before: You’ve probably heard about it already, but it’s amazing! I’ve been reading the books and I’m literally in love with Peter K. But shh, watch the movie on Netflix, or even better, do what I didn’t and READ THE BOOK FIRST. You won’t regret it!

Meteor Garden: It’s basically a Chinese Boys over Flowers remake, but I’m LIVING for Daoming Si and Shancai’s story. It’s on Netflix (US) and honestly, I’m obsessed.

My ID is Gangnam Beauty: I’m both watching the kdrama (It’s really cute) and reading the webtoon translation. They both cover important topics such as the idea of beauty and how much it could either improve your life, or consume you. I would say it’s a must watch.

Other ramblings

As for my home, it’s still under construction. I’ll most certainly post when it’s done. I can’t wait to have space for my books and my things!

I’m starting my P2 year, and I’m really scared, but I’m HOPING no hurricanes arrive this season. I do not think I would be able to handle it again (and people here haven’t really recovered from the damage yet. Let’s hope we get some rest and a normal pharmacy year (haHA like these words could ever be included in the same sentence!)


Whoa, two posts the same week! Is this what they call a miracle? Still- thanks for reading and I hope to see you all soon!

Sleepovers, Scares and Staying at a Hotel

Well, people, it’s been a while…

 

I’m blogging from my study cave. (Yes, you read me right. Studying. In July… but don’t be sad for me, I literally started studying today. I’m okay, and procrastinating healthily while blogging) The time has come to prepare myself for the PCAT… a test that will probably define my whole future, but no big deal! *laughs nervously*

Being an adult is scary. I’m not even kidding, I haven’t been more nervous than the night I applied to take the PCAT. It’s not that bad, though. I don’t exactly have to get up early, which means I can work with my schedule, and I plan on studying with my friends. My vacations haven’t exactly been uneventful. I got really scared for a week or two while I didn’t know if I would have to get surgery… If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that it was, thankfully, a false alarm, and I got off with a December appointment and an order to exercise and eat better… (bye bye, pizza weekends!) … Right after I got that order I went to an hotel and basically broke that rule for two whole days, but I was saying goodbye! Don’t judge! 😀

 

(Yes, that’s my hair. Yes, that’s Graceling, AKA my favorite book in the whole world) I posted most of my pictures/videos on Snapchat (fearlesslynat, like the blog, just in case you were wondering :D)

These past days were amazing… And they weren’t the only thing I’ve done this summer! I finally had my first sleepover at María‘s on her birthday, and it was fairly one of the best days ever 🙂

 

 

 

Now that I told you about everything that has happened, more or less, I guess I can also tell you about movies/books/tv shows, right?

A month ago I told you I was watching Les Interpretes, right? It had a kind of disappointing ending, to be honest. It had such a promising beginning, and it had to end like that… *groans*. I wasn’t expecting more of the other one I was watching, which was good, because the ending wasn’t good, either. That’s why I ended up watching Descendants of the Sun… twice. Now I’m watching Beautiful Mind, Doctors and Lucky Romance… which are good… so far. I am up to date with Game of Thrones as well, which means I can read Pat‘s posts without fear of spoilers. Life is good, really.

I’ve also tried to catch up with my reading… but I only read Lady Midnight (I finished it!!) and started Graceling. I’m waiting for my friend to give A Court of Mist and Fury to me… I’m really excited about it because (1) Sarah J. Maas, duh. and (2) IT’S SIGNED! Which is basically a dream come true… although I still want to meet her someday.

Anyway, I think this was a nice update, and hopefully I’ll meet you again soon while I try to distract myself from Biology and *shudders* organic chemistry… *waves*
