100th Post & a new me!

animated_gif_clipart_birthday_070Woooo! So this is my 100th Blog post. I know I have been absent, yet again, however, I have had good enough reasons!

I have now finished university! The problem was, I made some friends who are freaking awesome! But they were from America and Korea. They were only in London until the 26th of April and 3rd of May. =[ So I hung out with them a lot until they left. Unfortunately, my dissertation was due on the 7th of May.
I did finish my work on time but this meant that I have had no personal time. With mum still being in hospital and working on my dissertation I had no time to update my blog even when my friends had left. I even spent my birthday writing my dissertation!!
After I handed in my dissertation I decided after 4 years of university life, I need some me time to catch up on dramas, play games and just be lazy!

However, now that I have free time, although mum is still in hospital and I am doing a short course, I will be posting on here regularly again. I also don’t have a job any longer so I have weekends free. I will be dedicating two days a week to blogging! I will try to be interesting!

Again, if there are any topics you would like me to blog about, please let me know. Stay tuned!

Update

Hello! It’s been a while. I am back with an update on why I haven’t been posting on here the past two weeks. 

I know I stated in one of my last posts that I will be posting more often and I would do a lot of posts about K-Pop in the run up to the BigBang concert on the 14th, but I have had some devastating news. On the 5th of November, I received a phone call form my aunt telling me that my mum is in hospital. I ran to the hospital not knowing what to expect. When I arrived, I found out that my mum had a condition called AVM, she had bleeding in her brain which is classed as a stroke. 

She had to have an operation on the 6th of November to remove a blood clot and release the bleeding in her brain. Alhamdulillah everything went well and she is now recovering. Yesterday she left ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and has been placed on the neuro ward.

It has been a stressful two weeks for me with assignments and deadlines in the same week that my mother was taken to hospital. As I am in my final year of university I can’t miss any lessons and to be honest, I didn’t want to because I knew my mum would want me to carry on going to uni. She wants me to do well so that was what made me determined to attend my lectures & seminars. 

Anyway, now my mum is recovering, I won’t say that I will be posting on here more because every time I say that, something comes up! But I now have a little bit more free time and I can actually think clearer. 

Tomorrow, I am going to a Korean Language meet up in London, and I will try to record some footage and maybe do an interview with a few of my Korean & non-Korean friends about K-Pop & K-Dramas! I personally like Korean Films more, but none of my friends seem to have the same interests! I was also hoping on going to the London Korean Film Festival, but as my mum was in hospital,it wasn’t possible for me to go to any of the film showings. But there is always next year!

So, please, give me ideas on what you would like my to write or talk about and I will be sure to cover it!
