2014. a week later.


Mind's all there. Body, notsomuch.

It all began around Turkey Day. This feeling of being under the weather. Aaand just my luck, it's been kinda downhill ever since then. 2 weeks of fighting off a brutal cold and/or flu. Quickly followed by a severe allergic reaction to something yet to be determined. (Head-to-toe hives. So sexy.) That lasted about a week. And just when I thought I was in the clear, what the hizzle, another allergy attack! Not as severe as the first, but this time around I'm fairly certain it's Cedar Fever related. Now? Ah. Now I think I'm coming down with another cold. Oh yes, more exciting stuff. Be jealous.

But like every January, optimism is in the air. A lot of it. Comes with the New Year, must be why. At this current health status quo of 50%, I'll take a heavy dose of it! Desperately in need of a mental and emotional booster right now - even if it's from a 2014 horoscope!

Virgo (August 23 — September 22)
Get ready to spread those social butterfly wings, you introvert Virgos. The year promises to breathe renewed life into your everyday social relationships, and predicts you’ll be reconnecting with old pals and making new friends. And, with your social life getting a reboot, you may also find yourself embarking on a business venture come spring or collaborating on money-making creative projects. Speaking of moola, a total lunar eclipse will fall in Libra, your money sign, on April 15 (tax day, hello!) so look forward to a sweet return or a boost in your savings account. It’s gonna be a good year to put your budgeting skills to work. On the wellness front, give yourself plenty of time to indulge (you deserve it) but don’t bail on your resolution; kickoff your healthy habits before Mercury goes retrograde on February 12 — right before Valentine’s Day.

Having the mind and body in balance makes all the difference, eh? Can not wait to get back to 100%! And start off 2014 with that optimistic gusto!

besos ... jin. 


  1. hi jin! i'm sophia, one of kim le so's friends and i can't remember if we've met before but i know she's mentioned you tons of times. =) i stumbled across your blog and thought i'd leave a note.

    love your blog! you're super crafty!!! (i heart crafts!) your DIY wreath is so creative. =)

    and on a side note, sometimes viruses can causes allergic reactions, if you have a history of allergies and chronic urticaria (hives) where you occasionally get them, a viral illness can sometimes trigger the onset of a total body reaction. i don't know if that was the case for you, but it sometimes happens. i'd recommend seeing your PCP or an allergist to be certain though. hope you feel better!!

    1. if you're THE sophia, as in kim's bestie sophia - wow, hi!! kim mentions you all the time whenever i see her and any good friend of kim's must be uber awesome 'cause kim is one of the most down-to-earth and considerate gals i know. =) i'm not quite sure if we've met either, but if we did, it might've been a fleeting moment many, many years ago.

      anyways, thankyouTHANKYOUthankyou for checking out my blog! (and giving a concerned health advice. i do feel better at this moment. hives-free. hallelujah!) i've checked out your blog, as well, and i love what i'm reading! very relatable and raw. (i really can't get over how you've stuck with xanga that long! ... more !!!) but glad you've continued blogging (version 2.0), 'cause honestly, your stories were meant to be shared. =)
