Hey guys! (*^▽^*)

I haven't been updating as frequently as I like, due to much laziness and school. Plus, I couldn't think of ideas for another post, however, I remembered I was recently tagged by Alyss for the Love x Hate tag, in which bloggers:

List 10 things you love
List 10 things you hate
 Nominate other bloggers

And since I'm sick, either from a cold or a flu, I have plenty of time to write this blog post, even though I should really be studying for my statistics class...

10 Things I Love

1) Netflix

Before I got netflix, I didn't understand all the hype around it, especially when my friends kept raving about it. However, now that I do have it...I UNDERSTAND (゚∀゚)☞. These days, if I have free time I'm binge-watching shows and movies. The show I'm currently watching right now is F.R.I.E.N.D.S. since when I was younger, I never watched it. Now that I am, I absolutely love it! 

2) Shopping

Also known as retail therapy, haha. I love shopping for clothes especially, it just brightens my day! Although, I would say I'm an odd one, as I prefer shopping by myself, rather than with my friends, it takes less time and it's much easier since you don't need accomodate with others to which stores you want to go to or how long it would take.

3) The Rain

I know, I know, such an odd thing to love, but growing up in Vancouver, Canada, for all my life, the city which is infamously known as "Raincouver", I grew to like the rain. I love the smell, the feel and the sound of it, it's very clear, relaxing and smoothing. ( ◞・౪・)

4) Music

Playing music is my personal source whenever I need to escape from reality or when I feel sad or happy. My favourite genre of music are indie, folk and rock. Currently, I have been jamming (HAHA) to Vance Joy's album "Dream Your Life Away" and I'm excited that I will be seeing him live for his concert in January!!!

My favorite song from Vance Joy

5) Bralettes

Due to the fact that my instagram is mostly a fashion account, the majority of accounts that I follow are fashion instagrammers  as well and because of this, I grew to love the style of bralettes! The best place is buy some are aliexpress or amazon. ❣◕ ‿ ◕❣

6) Cats

I love cats, they're so cute, adventurous and curious creatures with a mind of their own. I was always more of cat person than a dog person...just don't tell my dog that, hahaha. Believe it or not, Vancouver is going to open their very own cat cafe soon!!!

7) Sushi

My favourite type of food easily. Whenever I hangout with friends or go on a date, sushi is always going to be my first suggestion. The type of sushi that I love the most is anything that involves tuna, but my favourite dish would probably be the chirashi don.

8) Reddit

Probably another odd thing to love, given how people on Reddit can be downright rude and nasty (let's not sugarcoat this), but, Reddit is a site that I use daily, and has been a resourceful tool for me! People on reddit are very good at giving advice and insight, as well, I like reading stories on such threads such as AskReddit or Let's Not Meet.

9) Hiking

This probably the most ironic thing that I would love, because first of all, I do not like walking at all. Secondly, I hate when the sun is on my face. Realistically, if you combine the two, you end up with hiking. Anyways, months ago, when my friend dragged me to hike with her, I found myself liking it due to the scenery, the nice exercise and exploring British Columbia.
This was my very first hike, at Minnekhada park.

10) The Feeling of Accomplishment

This is probably the best feeling in the world (•́⌄•́๑)૭✧ knowing that you worked on something for so long and hard, the feeling of accomplishment is something that you cannot get if you don`t work at it. I hope I will get this feeling in the many years to come!

10 Things I Hate

1) Being Sick

I'm sick at the moment and I hate it, I don't like the feeling of being nauseous, dizzy and unenergetic. In relation, I hate any type of medication too, especially cherry cough syrup, it tastes awful and it makes me not want to drink anymore of it.  

2) Insects

Especially spiders, bees and wasps, they freak me out, most likely due to their numerous legs and eyes they have. ( ⚆ _ ⚆ )

3) Rude and Entitled People

I've worked in retail for about 2 years now, and I seen my share of rude and entitled people, and I don't understand why people feel the need to act this way. Yes, I am working in entry level job, but that does not give you the right to treat workers and other people this way. 

Haha, sad, but true.
4) When People Cancel on Plans the Last Minute

This one infuriates me. Seriously, if you and I made plans a week ago, honour it, do not cancel the last minute because something or someone else comes along. I have this one friend who does this, especially, if her boyfriend, becomes free, she'll go ahead and cancel our plans.

5) Smoking

I hate the smell of cigarettes and smelling of it. What's worse is the fact that somehow, second hand smoking, gets people sicker than those who actually smoke...

6) Indecisiveness

This is one huge problem for me. I'm very indecisive, whether it's a place to eat, read, etc. Right now, it's picking what I want to do in life. Sometimes I wonder if I should take a break from university and enter into trades, that way, I would have some skills, when I entered the workforce, instead of just academic studies.

7) Blushing

For me, I absolutely, hate the feeling of blushing, because I feel like everyone is staring at me and it makes me feel more embarrassed than I should be. I've been blushing ever since I was really young, so it's something that I'm still working on. The worse thing a person can do to a blusher is point out that they're blushing, like thanks...I know I am already and my cousin is the worse, he always does that to me. 

8) Being unmotivated

It's not a very good feeling. You know that you want to do things and finish them, but don't have the motivation to do so. I know this feeling quite well, I had this feeling for the last few years when I was at college, I was emotionally drained from school. I do know better that, if I ever should feel this way again, I will take a break, since life is not a marathon or a race.

9) Being on Cash

Cashiering is probably a simple task once you get use to it, however, for me, while I do know, most of the system, I get very anxious and nervous whenever I'm on cash, and I hate the feeling of it. (((( ;°Д°))))

10) Getting Blamed

This is my biggest pet peeve. Do not blame me for something that I did not do. I swear if people do this to me, I get so pissed off that I don't want to deal or talk to them anymore and yes, I had a friend do this to me, to the point, that I really wanted to sock her at one point.
