The Sunday #3

One day, my weekly posting will not consist of just The Sunday.  I have a notebook full of ideas for content, but this week has been hectic between work and appointments.  I want this blog to be a positive place, but it's been a rough week so I'm going to talk about it diary-style.

SNAPS.  My favorite snapshots of these 7 days are all from the weekend.  Exhibit A: all dressed up to go out with my boyfriend and some friends.  I feel nerdy in glasses so I was trying to clean up (compensating!).  Exhibit B: my friend's dog, beautiful Stella, who I love spoiling with treats.  Exhibit C: my boyfriends hates pictures so I gotta sneak them in to catch him smiling!

HOSPITAL.  Another year, another trip to the emergency room, both times for an infection in my left eye.  I've been to see my university's health center about it, but went to the hospital on Saturday since doctors aren't usually available on weekends.  I'd rather play it safe than sorry with health (especially when it comes to eyes) so I decided not to 'wait it out'.  The doctor didn't see anything alarming, but recommended I keep an eye on it (punny!) and methods to relieve symptoms.  In the meantime, I'm stuck in glasses, which leads me to...

GLASSES.  They're about 5 years old and I really hate wearing them.  They're forever sliding down on my flat Asian nose.  I lose the 360 degree peripheral vision I have in contacts.  I feel very blind and disoriented.  Wearing glasses is mostly frustrating and I can not wait until I switch back to contacts.

BLOGS.  One of the things that inspired me to come back to blogging was the great blogs out there.  My favorite bloggers are ones who are raw and real with writing from the heart.  I was blown away by the strength in Lauren's birth story, the integrity of Michelle's character and heart in her reasons for blogging, and Anu's empathy for a continuing issue in society.  Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the resilience of human spirit in Dani's journey?  I love strong, empathetic, and intelligent female voices in the blogosphere.  More of this, please!

I'm going to end this Sunday post on that positive note!  Cheers.


  1. I don't hate wearing glasses per se... mine are just super heavy even though I've had the lenses thinned. Blind girl problems! Hopefully they/you work out what's going on with your eyes. Have you tried any 'Asian fit' versions of glasses? Sounds insane but I didn't realise they did them until I started working in luxury RTW here ha. Lots of brands do Asian fit glasses that are designed for lack of nose bridges.

    Thanks again for the shoutout. Too kind! Been having all sorts of inner arguments with myself after that post hahah~

  2. The pictures are amazing! Thanks for sharing:)

  3. That's such a bummer about your eyes and I hope you're healing quickly this time around! I know what you mean about glasses though; I also have a flat asian nose and it's never easy keeping them to stay put. The struggles.

    Stay positive and, hey, you're half way to the weekend! Whoot! :)


  4. Aw thank you for the mention lovely! Hope your eyes feel better soon, I've just recovered from an eye infection myself :( but reminds me how we really take our eyes for granted!! xx
