ghost & goblins

Weird Things

- I have a strange name and no one seems to know where it came from. My parents have no idea where they heard it only that they loved the name. They get vague and just weird when I talk about it.

- when I was little, I talked to flowers for hours. Literally HOURS

- when I found out my mom was pregnant, I woke up that night crying to my parents, completely convinced the baby was a boy while I wanted a sister. I forgot about this until much later when playing with my little brother

- I gave a ritualistic funeral to a dead imagined person, complete with circles of salt as a kid.

- I didn’t know that salt rings were a thing (my family is religious and I couldn’t watch/read anything with odd things like that until I was older) but I convinced my cousin to pretend we were protecting ourselves from goblins/ghosts/monsters by hiding in circles of rock salt

- wearing wool gloves or hats makes my skin crawl. It feels like pins and needles, but only where the wool is. Still don’t understand that.

- was convinced for years that I could make things happen by specifically NOT thinking about that thing. (And?? It usually worked???) For example, what I wanted for dinner, what TV show I wanted to come on, what my brother was thinking, etc..

- I have zero fear of heights. Like, it’s a problem

-can climb a tree like no one’s business

- unusual dumpster diving luck? Found juggling knives, large watches, love letters…

- mood swings like woah

- was super thirsty so I thought super hard at the back of a friend’s head until they turned around and announced they’d by us water

- probably asexual, I am realizing

-books are my home

- when I was a baby, I talked/sang way too early and the doctors wouldn’t believe I could say as many words as my parents said I could.

- I in all seriousness once asked a cat to touch her paw to my nose if she could understand me. She did cause she’s chill like that.

- made wishes on dandelions that came true.

- in my head, numbers have personalities and relationships with each other. (I could expand on this but that’ll take too long here)

- I am pretty much never surprised when someone tells me a secret. Like, I didn’t know what they were going to say, but… I kinda already knew. Which generally freaks people out because they think they’re being too obvious or whatever.

- Dreams happen when I wake up. (dreamed about maggots and woke up to find them trashing our kitchen, etc.)

- And I’m a writer so… that just seals the deal, don't it?

Or maybe I'm just crazy.

What about you, hmm?

Kdrama kisses

2016-Mid 2017 favorite kdramas list.

Have in mind that this list only contains the dramas I completed and liked.

2016

As we all know, 2016 was till this day the best year for kdramas. 

ROM/COMs: 

Lucky romance: I really liked the character of the main lead since he’s not that stereotypical perfect dude on his white horse. The chemistry between the leads was awesome but I had higher expectations for the ending. 

Originally posted by irrational-obsessions-gottcha78

Weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo: I can’t express my love for this drama. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. Definitely on my TOP 5 kdramas.

Originally posted by maublogskdramas

Jealousy incarnate: The drama was good overall even thought I think they dragged it a little bit too much. Perfect to watch when you are bored. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very good drama, it’s just that I’ve seen better.

Another Oh Hae Young: It’s was savage. Can’t say more. Actually yes, Savage and sexy !

Drinking solo: I’m not really into these kind of dramas. I liked all the stories beside the main lead’s tbh.

Cinderella and the four knights: Cute…Cute and Hella Cute..

MELO/ ROM/COM:

Uncontrollably fond: A VERY OVERWHELMING DRAMA…Grab some tissues for every single episode. It’s a roller coaster mates..

My wife’s having an affair this week: A very mature drama. I enjoyed and learned a lot from it.

HISTORICAL/ ROM:

Moon lovers: Don’t GET ME STARTED ON THIS ONE PLEASE…I WON’T SHUT UP *Start crying*

Originally posted by kdramafeed

ACTION/ ROM/COM:

Descendants of the sun: I don’t know why I don’t talk about this drama a lot. It’s definitely one of those that deserve their fame.

The K2: It’s soo not the best kdrama Ji chang wook was in, but it was great anyways. I blame it on the plot development but the acting was great.

FANTASY/ ROM/COMs: 

W-Two worlds: Don’t kill me, but it’s the only drama I liked of Lee Jong Suk along with I can hear your voice. 

Originally posted by dramafan1001

Let’s fight ghost: I was really not expecting to like this drama. Turned out it was very good. Awesome plot, character development, acting skills and great main leads chemistry.

Goblin: I was really into it when I was watching it, and was ready to make it on my TOP 5 but…I don’t know now…

2017

ROM/COMs:

Fight for my way: I really think it will be the best drama of 2017. It was very realistic, and the leads chemistry was everything. I can’t believe people complained about it having to much kissing scenes *Laughing emoji* WTH..

Originally posted by captainjoongki

Suspicious partner: I was specially into the female lead’s strong will and personality. They could have worked better on the romance but well…

Originally posted by leejaeshins

Tomorrow with you: Veeeeery cringy. But good cringy LOL. Cute cringy if you want.

Originally posted by ninomisan

Strong woman Do Bong Soon: Kinda reminded me of weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo. In a good way. The leads were the definition of cute and they both portrayed the characters excellently.

ACTION/ MYSTERY/ THRILLER :

Defendant: I just wanted to say that I love JI SUNG a lot. He’s precious.

  • ghosts and vampire conductors
  • goblins at toll booths licking metro cards to see if they have money on them
  • dwarves dug the original tunnels and are always digging new ones
  • elves riding completely still, unaffected by all the bumps and turns
  • hobbits, dwarves, and other smaller beings complaining about the lower railings always filling up first
  • underwater sections for merpeople
  • centaurs letting their friends sit on their backs when it’s crowded
  • rails under seats for gnomes, brownies, etc.
