I just finished watching the entire season of Stranger Things on Netflix and I am so sad that it’s over. It is SOOOOOO GOOD! I hate that feeling when you’ve binge watched every episode in such little time and have to wait, for what seems like an eternity, until the next season to come out; it’s so depressing.
Character development, portrayal, and overall casting was absolutely phenomenal in this show. Winona Ryder…incredible! I was crying with her all the way through, and when she threw her ex-husband out of the house I was screaming at the TV right along with her. The kids were all loveable and adorable. It brought me back to my childhood (my friends and I actually played Dungeons & Dragons when I was younger). After each episode Pooh and I were like…”omg it’s so good should we watch another?” But only 8 episodes though?!?! I need more! Once we finished the last episode we went straight to Google to see if there were plans for a second season. Much to our excitement a second season has been confirmed! I can’t wait!
If you haven’t checked out Stranger Things on Netflix you should! It seemed scary at first, and I don’t do scary movies, but it wasn’t scary at all. It felt like Goonies meets X-Files meets Firestarter. So frikkin good!
Thanks for all of the “get well soon” wishes everyone. The surgery went well. I was a bit nervous and scared at first but after sitting in the hospital bed with an IV for an hour or so I calmed down. I just wanted to get it all over with. We had to get to the hospital at 5am…which meant I had to get up at around 4am. I should have just stayed up all night and just got my sleep when they put me under lol. Pooh wouldn’t let me.
Whoever said “it’s not that bad” probably had their hernia repair performed laparoscopically or they had some real good drugs. Since mine got worse, I had to make a large open incision on my pelvis instead. Sure, “it isn’t that bad” when I’m fucked up on pain meds, but when my meds wear off it hurts like a fucking mother fucking bitch fucking shit oh my fucking Jesus Christ of the fucking bridge to fucking terabithia. I accidentally coughed in my sleep last night and it woke me up…my wound felt like it ripped open. FMLITF!!!! 😢😢😭😭
Anyway, on my pain meds I’m fine. I’m like high as a kite! Though I feel some pain when I move, the high feeling distracts me from my pain.
Pooh got me a cute lil get well soon gift full of treats and goodies. He took off two days from work so he can take care of me. So sweet of him. So glad he is here to help me do stuff like get up, eat, get into bed etc. Right now moving around, getting up and down, and even laughing is all painful even with my meds.
Kawawa face when my meds wear off.
My boo got me tons of snacks to munch on since I’ll be home all week haha. So hiiiigh so happyyyyy :]
I love these socks they gave me at the hospital. There super comfy and cute!
Waking up this morning was brutal. My pain meds wore off in my sleep. Might have to take short naps so I can take some more before it wears off. Yesterday felt like the longest day ever but yay I survived lol. Today so far has been spent in bed (Pooh laid out a futon so I can be comfy in the livingroom) watching movies and playing video games. I really want to drink but I guess I can’t do that while on meds. Womp womp. As far so recovery it’s only day two and it doesn’t feel any better than yesterday. My doctor said I should have taken a week off of work to recover but I am scheduled to go back to work on Wednesday. Hopefully I get better by then.
Didn’t sleep much last night. Woke up a couple times before I rolled out of bed at 4 am. It’s 5am now and I’m in the waiting room at the hospital. It’s an outpatient surgery so I should be out of here in a couple hours. There’s something about hospitals and doctors that gives me really high anxiety. They’re also very depressing. They remind me of my grandma and the last couple times I saw her before she passed away. Ugh. I just want to get it over with already.
Pooh is here with me. He’s gonna pick up up after my surgery and take care of me while I’m all drugged up lol. I’m listening to Troye Sivan on Spotify while my Vita charges. It seems I have a long wait. They make you get here at 5 am even though my surgery isn’t until 7:30. -_-…Gonna try to keep my mind distracted with social media, loud music in one ear, and video games. Wish me luck!
This Friday I’ll be having my surgery to fix my inguinal hernia. It’s gotten worse since I first had it and they’ll no longer be able to do the procedure laparoscopically; they’ll need to make a large incision directly over the hernia to patch it up. I’m a little scared. I have a huge anxiety when it comes to Doctor visits and hospitals. I’m also worried about being put to sleep. What if I wake up too early? What if I don’t wake up? I’m sure it’ll be fine.
I haven’t been able to sleep much lately. My insomnia has been getting pretty bad. Each night I’d have only 2 – 4 hours sleep. The only way I’d get a decent night’s rest would be after having blacked out from too much to drink. I know that’s not much better for me either.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me to be honest. I guess I just have a lot going on right now and my mind just won’t shut off. Hopefully having this surgery, having tons of pain meds, and having a bunch of days off to recover will help me get some rest.
Thanks everyone for the positive vibes and good luck wishes. It feels nice to know you guys care.
Thank you also for still following my blog. I love hearing people say “I used to read your blog!”…but I think I love hearing “I love/read your blog!” more.
Where’s Tiggah and Tigguhh been??? Sorry guys. I’ve been sucked into the world of video games and have been an addict every night. I’ve been juggling Destiny, Elder Scrolls Online, and Final Fantasy XIV every night after work. I play on ps4 so if you’d like to join me, hit me up and I’ll add you.
I’ve also started working out again. Hopefully I’ll start feeling sexy again and might like some of the pictures I’ve been taking and actually post them. I hope you guys miss me! I’ll try to post more! :)
This is a super late post. Those of you that follow my instagram know already, but yea, we got a new car! Pooh and I purchased ourselves a nice lil Mercedes Benz for Christmas. Felt so nice to buy ourselves a nice car without any help from our parents. We were thinking about leasing a 2015 but we wanted to “own” and not have to worry about mileage each year. We bought a 2013 C250 Sport that had all of the extras, bells, and whistles. We got a 5 year maintenance package and are planning on selling it and getting another car when it ends. It was a previously leased vehicle with less than 14k miles on it and a huge upgrade from both of our cars. Pooh had a Toyota Celica and I had a Toyota Matrix. We were so excited and so very happy. 2014 was definitely a great year! Merry Christmas and happy new year to us for sure!!!
Haha don’t worry, I’m alive! It’s been a while since I’ve made a post. Time has flown by the past couple weeks. It means so much to me when I hear from my blog readers. Thanks for the sweet messages saying you guys miss me! It’s greatly appreciated. :)
If we didn’t miss our flight we never would have been able to try the amazingness that is Maharlika! We haven’t been to a modern Filipino restaurant before so we were excited to try it! We heard a lot of good things and were impressed by what we saw on Yelp. I’ve also been craving some Filipino food and man was it a treat!
The Ube Waffles and Crispy Fried Chicken were incredible! The waffles were served with this insane bagoong and chives butter and a heavenly apricot maple syrup. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The chicken was yummy too…I mean…fried chicken and garlic fried rice!?!? Omg. The next time a friend from New York comes to visit SD…I will pay you to pack that shit up in a giant Tupperware and bring it with you!!!
Sizzling Sisig hot skillet with an egg mixed in and served table side. It’s food that plays with all of your senses. The sound of the sizzle as the waiter approaches your table. The smell wafts slowly towards you and takes you in. I’d get to the other senses but you get my point. Pair this orgasm in a skillet with garlic fried rice and you’re done. Just Done. DONE!
The only place I really wanted to go to on our New York trip was Morimoto’s restaurant. Ever since I first started getting into food and blogging it’s been on the top of my bucket list of things I must do before I shuffle off this mortal coil. I was excited, of course, to go to New York since I’ve never been before, but finally getting to go to Morimoto was the icing on the cake.
We started off with some fancy cocktails….of course. :]
We started with the Toro tartare. This slab of beauty is garnished with caviar that you spread throughout and I paired with a dipping sauce and 6 toppings. You dip it in a lil bit of this and then you top it with a lil bit of that…so delicious! I was so overwhelmed that I wasn’t paying attention to the waiter when he was explaining the different sauces and toppings. Each topping had different flavor profiles and complimented the toro in different ways …a definite must try! I wish it was a bigger slab!!!
Ten hour cooked pork belly with congee and soy scallion jus – a modern twist to traditional Kakuni. Sweet and savory melt in your mouth in perfect harmony and just when you think its rich flavors are done, you cut into crispy textures that pull you back in! Loooved it!
Crispy rock shrimp tempura. Pooh wanted to order it and I wasn’t quite sure why. With so many unique and interesting items on the menu I was like…shrimp tempura? Really? I was pleasantly suprised by how amazeballs these things were! One was glazed with spicy kochujang sauce that blows hot wings out of the water; the other had wasabi aoli…I was eating these things like butter popcorn topped with crack. So addicting!
Pooh ordered the Duck Duck Duck. It’s ingredients say it all…foie gras croissant, roasted duck, a poached duck egg, and 2 dipping sauces. Zomg. It was very rich and fatty…heaven.
I ordered the roasted maine lobster topped with veggies, keffir lime, and green curry sauce. So many incredible flavors yet they didn’t take away from the subtle richness of the lobster. My heart melted. *swoon*
Pooh and I had an incredible meal. I was smiling the entire time! I cannot wait to come back and try more things! Although it ain’t cheap, i highly recommended checking it out on your next trip to New York!
