what a month.. I think a year from now, I’m gonna binge-watch the entire December Daily ’18 and it’s gonna be so weird. it’s crazy that so much of my recent years is online, & that I get to share daily sentiments with you. it’s truly a blessing.
But wow, I did not expect to be super on-top of uploads during school (and finals), & then totally lazy/behind as soon as I was home on break HAHA… But I get what happened- I spent less time alone, I wanted to enjoy a lot of off-screen time w/ people I barely get to see. This year especially, I didn’t see my friends much. I saw my cousin Jason for the first time in 4 years though, which was splendid. The house hasn’t been so full of life & laughter in a long time.
Having moved a lot growing up, we rarely stay in touch with longtime friends or family in China. Aside from biking with William, today was the first I saw of my friends this winter! I saw Luke for TWO days total the entire year, so sad. I planned to see him again, but with his luck, Luke’s crown painfully fell out the next day & he needed an emergency dental visit. He is okay now!
No matter what though, I still count myself lucky to have these people in my life, thanks to the cell phone & social media ^_^ I get to see what my friends are up to, their diet (LOL sounds creepy) and their random thoughts here & there. It’s not the same as being with them in person- but just like you are with me in my vlogs- to have friendship & love in spirit is worth something.
speaking of that, Tyler is moving away soon! Counting down the days. Just as I start school tomorrow, he’s packing up & out by the end of the week. (new job!) I wonder what this next chapter of our lives/relationship will be like. It is going to be different, but I am excited in a way!
As for me, I’m looking forward to my photography class. Some of you told me that you study photography or are enrolled in that course as well! I look forward to sharing with you my work, but not gonna lie I am nervous. I am an amateur photographer (toggle with the fancy camera and the settings until something works)- I have very little knowledge about the intricacies on operating a camera. Also, I’ve used photography as a means of documentation, not experimentation or as a medium of expression. this is my chance! Why else am I learning it right? Although my mind draws a blank, I’m sure once I attend the studios and begin learning, some inspiration will roll in. Apparently we are for sure going to hand make a photo book for the final, so I really hope my topic and execution is worthwhile!
Let me know what you’re looking forward to in the coming month. Also, if you have any video requests! This term will be relaxed until my textiles degree starts again in mid Feb, so I want to take this chance to make some fun videos that I’d be too busy to do! Some things in my mind: note-taking advice, my sister and my journal/planner habits, some DIY, re-vamping existing earrings, etc.
Since the whole of Dec was so vlog intense, I’m taking a break from it. It’ll give way for some refreshing content. Also, a vlog from November (thanksgiving) will be up! I had no time to edit that because December Daily started so soon, it was put on hold. So yes! So so much to tell you, and I will see you soon! Thank you for everything.
we're in for another day of fun! really, it's the last day we're gonna get to go out and do things, because for the next few days we'll just be at home celebrating the New Year's and there'll actually be a few friends along the way to join us, you guys haven't seen Luke in so long. woohoo woo! the last one! OH NO!! *screams in despair* claire: you guys roll the dice like this, or if orange ended up rolling first, and blue goes 1,2- Orange is still first. *explaining the rules of Camelup* -this one
Luke: right is here the king of diamonds? yea? hm.. here, tell me when to stop. jason: stop. right here? oh nice, nice. alright, which card is the 3 of diamonds? the top card? you can still change your mind. I want… that one. okay. good. alright okay, so.. did someone pick… the 2 of spades? … someone picked the 2 of spades. William: ….you did -oh I picked it
-you did Tyler: king of di- WHAT spades?
Tyler: that's me! 7 of spades. Tyler: what! 3 of diamonds. 9 of spades. *pumkin whining* dad: what? *meoww* what? MEOWWW! what! what?? what? so he wants to follow me in the bathroom, then he wanted to get out. he's gotta wait! *pumkin follows my dad everywhere now..* (he's upstairs napping at the moment) *the elusive chi, shows herself.* Happy New Year's Eve, so I almost went casual again but then Tyler convinced me to dress up again. the reason why I didn't want to is because it's kind of cold in our house and this dress is spaghetti, but look- I have my pajamas on, and I'm gonna have fuzzy socks so.. I think I should be okay. it's my first New Year's Eve with Tyler so I guess we should take photos and celebrate. in the day I didn't vlog a lot because I was
working on last December daily for about six hours? and the Sun went down, and I'm getting ready so that's kind of all I did today. but- there's gonna be a lot of fun stuff happening tonight and this is how we're gonna close out the whole series, and 2018! mom: I want you to look at this type of tea leaf very special. it's from a very tall tree, an ancient tree. really rare; it's harvested once in many years. I want you guys to tree some tea. -this is from a really really old tree, Tyler: wow so this is very rare. Dad: smells good
tyler: Thank you! Mom: he's drinking it! I didn't think he would! (my dad) Mom: I'll get some for you now woah, it's so good!
Mom: it's different right? Mom: It's not black tea, the taste is very special. wow this is special, thank you so much!
mom: mmhmm! grandma's preparing dinner for everyone! my sister and them are still not back, and it's almost dinnertime, so I'm just goofing around-everyone just making random conversation. like that? yeah, I'm always scared of it, but it's not a big deal. it just pops. -okay? -just keep peeling I keep peeling it??
-yeah Chris: haha annabelle- -I don't like these things! youjin: I wanna do it!
Chris: hold on, let me see press down *AH* -I told you! oohhh -smart. *mom explaining it to my aunt, who's never seen something like this before* lilith: I didn't know that gouda was soft cus they had it in the hard cheese section. Annabelle: Is gouda that soft?
Tyler: it's like medium youjin: it's not spreadable, is it? -it's not spreadable. do you not like blue cheese at all? youjin: nuh uh
tyler: aww -I don't like blue and goat cheese. chris: HA tyler sounds so dissapointed 'AWW' -I love blue cheese Tyler: did you notice I, like.. didn't finish that plate of beef like I could have -I saved it okay he's laughing … that means there's something wrong. *dad demanding brie* -yeah that's ready.
-yeah everybody's tryna see the future! just someone die already! youjin: He's just stuffing his face Tyler.. stop stuffing your face and play the game. -Thank you two? okay… *playing exploding kittens* oh you're good? what about that one? Jason: ah, yes!! *laughter* – I don't know if it's good or bad! *explaining the rules of bananagrams* but if you can't incorporate it, you have to… put one back and get three? *watching the last vlog together* Grandma: why me again! (the scene with her scarf in the wind) who wants the happy new year chocolate almost 10 seconds, everyone is not pay attention! Lilith: I'm paying attention!! okay, almost 10! almost. -Almost??
– yeah Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, four, Three, Two, ONE! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Lilith: look at these 2 couples, and then just me by myself here. Mom: COME, MOM'S HUG FOR YOU *laughter* happy new year! it's been a week since I've turned on my
camera. I'm home now, and there has been… a lot of procrastination for the last
video just because, in the new year, the first and second day I wanted to spend it with my friends and family as much as possible and then.. on the way back home I really put off looking at the footage just because I didn't want to be reminded and.. feel sad I guess like 'oh man, break is over, and go back to
school' and all of that even though eventually I have to edit it
anyways and I should have done that sooner. there is a lot to update on, and I'll probably just do a chitchat and catch up but school starts tomorrow! so thank you, thank you so much for watching the December Dailies. -especially if you actually kept up with every single one, and it was really a fun series. I enjoyed it. I hope that you had a great holiday yourself, and a good start to the new year! look who's here! sending you our love, and I will see you
very soon! bye bye!
