March Wishlist/ Birthday Wishlist

Happy Birthday Me! If you read my blogpost, you'll know that I reached 22 today and I'm excited. So, I'll be combining my March and Birthday wish lists together in one blogpost.

The Space Between Us Review

Let's start the review.
According to Wikipedia, the plot is - 
In the near future, Nathaniel Shepard, CEO of Genesis, launches the first ever mission to colonize Mars. During the journey, the lead astronaut, Sarah Elliot discovers she is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on Mars. The father of the child is unknown. In a dilemma, Nathaniel eventually decides to keep the child on Mars and a secret, to avoid a PR disaster for his company. 16 years later, her son, Gardner Elliot, has grown into an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who has only ever met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing. One day, in order to find out more about his mother, he hacks into Centaur, a robot he helped build, to gain access to the ship's storage. There, he retrieves his mother's items. Among them, a wedding ring and a USB drive, from which he plays a video of her and a man in a beach house. Convinced that the man is his father, he becomes determined to find him.
Story: 9/10
I really enjoyed the story. It's a bit unusual type of love story so I really enjoyed it. However, the reason why I didn't give the story full marks is that the story line is very classic apart from the sci-fi. It lacks a spark that made the story line bring to the higher level.

Sound: 9/10
I enjoyed most of the soundtracks. I saw they were uploaded to Spotify so I have been listening some of the soundtrack while studying. I didn't really enjoy much of the songs but I really liked the instrumental music a lot. And hence, 9 out of 10.

Enjoyment: 8/10
I find that the movie is a bit draggy and slow. I got annoyed at how high expectation Gardner had for Earth for some reason that I don't really know. (hahaha) It was a good movie but it didn't made it to the top list.

Overall: 8/10
It was an okay movie to watch. The main reason why I gave an 8 is mainly because I like the main character Asa Butterfield from the famous movie Ender's Game and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Other than that, I have not much to say about the movie.




3 Things I want to do but....

I was reading some blogposts from Gosia whom I totally adore, she really is gorgeous and her blogposts are always very inspiring and there I was creeping out and reading her entire blog. I came across this recent blog post that she had written called "3 Things I want to do, but... There's always a "but"" and I was so inspired to write my own version to the title.

The post kind of represented who I am currently, learning and doing things that I don't really enjoy. I have other things that I really want to do but there are several obstacles between me and things I want to do. That's why I decided to pick 3 things from a long list of what I want to do but having excuses not to do them:

  1. Read more books - I know the benefits of reading books but yet I still don't really read much. I read manga, which is kind of a book or sort?, but I don't really read much of fiction or non-fiction books as much as I should. My excuse were always I got bored while reading. Well, I did attempt to read from time to time but seems like I never really succeeded reading a proper book.
  2. Exercise - I always find excuses to do exercising which again is really beneficial for my body but tend to find myself not doing most of the time. I always say "I realllyyyy should do exercise and work out" but I almost never even start to do.
  3. Live a minimalist lifestyle - Gosia also mentioned this on her post and I can't agree more. I've already attempted minimalism and I really love how light I feel. But from time to time, I get bored of things I'm using or wearing and having the urge to buy more variations. I need to remind myself on getting back to minimalism and declutter more often.
If you have any good arguments and motivation tips that could urge me to get doing, please do give me tips. 

February Wishlist

Since I'm back to filming non-stop to upload every Monday and Thursday, I realize that I don't have any eye shadow palette that is not either limited edition nor recent editions. Therefore, this month, I want to buy at least one eye shadow palette from the list down below. I also have been wanting a new beauty blender but I don't have enough money to buy but I'll just put it in my list that I want to buy.

Eye shadow wise, I've been seeing a lot of makeup tutorials featuring the Sweet Peach palette or Modern Renaissance palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Either that or I'll probably buy Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes since I don't have any Too Faced palettes before and I want to try. Other than that, I found some shirts that I really like but doesn't really need but I'll just put it here anyways.

Let me know what are your wishlist for this month in the comments!

My Week in Photos (Week 8)

It's been a while I upload my week in photos series. Don't worry, I'll upload Week 6 and 7 soon so stay tuned. This week, there was nothing much going on. I went to school, studied, met the boy for dinners and watched SAO Ordinal Scale yesterday and I was so pumped about it. I'll write about it tomorrow or coming Monday. Can't wait to write a review about it. 
So, that's pretty much it for my week. How was yours? Was it a good week or a bad week? Let me know in the comments!

SWORD ART ONLINE: ORDINAL SCALE Review

I was so anticipating to watch this anime, Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale ever since I heard the news that there will be a movie about it. Finally I got to watch the movie on 23rd of Febuary. I couldn't get the ticket for the world premier which was held on 18th of February and I was really sad about it. I thought I could get tickets but nope, it was sold out very fast.
For people in US, I believe the movie will come out in March, according to the SAO US official website.
Okay, let's start the review.
First of all, IT WAS AWESOME! (ahahaha) I recommend you to start watching the first two seasons first before you watch the movie. I believe a lot of people who watch Ordinal Scale already watched the SAO series before. Since it's about Augma (Augmented Reality), which is much closer to another anime adapted series Accel World, which took place way after SAO.

Story: 10/10
It has a combination of sad, emotional, anger, happiness, excitement and romance emotions in a single movie and the fact that there is a balance between all of them which I enjoyed. I don't want to spoil on the story line so, I won't really go much on the story line. So far, the movie was much better than GGO arc and Alfheim arc combined.

Art: 9/10
There is an increase use of special effects that made the art great. Nothing better to say on the character designs but I really enjoyed the use of 3D animation that is a bit subtle yet effective. I can see a big jump in quality when you compare to GGO or even the original SAO arc.

Character: 9/10
Well, nothing much to say to the old characters but I really loved the way they manipulate emotions of a character to help sympathize on the character. New characters - Yuna, Eiiji and Prof. Shigemura were a necessity in order to make the story shine. I guess a lot of people will say that Yuna is cute. She is indeed cute though. #YunaLOVE

Sound: 8/10
The soundtracks were awesome but I still prefer the first SAO and the Mother Rosario arc more than OS arc's soundtracks. I love the new Lisa's song though. It has been a repeat on my Spotify playlist these days.

Enjoyment: 100000/10
The soundtracks, the art, the story and the characters combined made a great movie and I enjoyed the movie to death. Moreover, with the Atmos sound system from the cinema, it made me want to set up the Atmos sound system at home to watch anime. The difference is insane. With the story provided, it made me fall in love with the characters more.

Overall: 9/10
It was really a good movie overall. I especially loved the second half of the movie since it gets more dramatic. All in all, it's on my top list of anime to re-watch.

PS. Please wait till the credits end since there is more to come. 





Thoughts I have these days

School
School is tough but I'm giving my best shot to pass all the assignments and modules by April. If you noticed that I haven't been posting is because of school and my laziness to do my assignments properly. Accounting is tough. It has been one of my modules this trimester and it has been really tough to study. I like financial statements and I enjoy doing them but for the theory questions, I don't really understand what are the key points to really get the marks. Business Research is okay for now since it is more of theories and statistics. I really enjoyed making surveys for assignment 1 and I hoped I can get a passing grade or better grades. Organisational Behavior is fun. I really like to learn how one person's attitudes and personalities work on the organisation and how human behavior takes part in the business organisations. Managing Under Uncertainty is a okay subject but I don't enjoy doing the assignments. My marks got decreased because the teacher thought that most of our assignments does not contain certain expectations from teachers. Well, some of the points that the teacher was expecting was good valid points but some, not very logical. But well, since we are students, we couldn't really say much to the person who is marking and deciding whether I get a pass or a fail so, I'll just stop here. 

Friends
School is boring. Maybe because I don't really interact with others in a proper manner. We don't really hang out and I feel like I'm being counted as just a girl who help others. Well, I want to be a proper friend with some people and if they don't seem like they want to be friends with me, then I guess there is no other way. These days, my life is just school, attending lectures for a few hours then go back home immediately. 

During my bachelors, we hanged out after school, having dinner or even watch movies from time to time and life was colorful. Now, I'm back home half an hour after class watching movies or start my assignment for the week. Life became boring. 

Why am I doing MBA?
My thoughts of getting MBA changed along the way because it's just a bit too tough for me to go through that emotion and anxiety for the whole year and I don't want that. I want to start working so that I can earn money for travels. I want to travel more. I want to move to another country where I work part time and focus more on what I really like to do and live a simple life. I don't want to pay $1000 just for a room in an apartment where I don't even spend that much time on. 

Mental Health and Work
I guess, in a few days, 5 days to be exact, I'll be 22 soon. I'm excited yet I'm so under stress and anxiety to be actually happy and excited to be a birthday girl. Even though I'm 22, I want to take control of my life more and start earning money to live independently. I don't want to ask for money from my mother just to survive. I guess, it's not that easy to survive properly given the fact that I don't have any experience in any job expertise, I don't have much confidence in having a good career that everyone is expecting from me. 

I want to live a simple life. I'm not asking for a total princess lifestyle who only depends on someone to live but I want to have a simple job with simple lifestyle. I want to learn more on the things that I love while working. I want to get back to coding and creating website. I want to learn more about video editing and creating things that I enjoy.

Blog and YouTube
Because of my poor time management, I put my blogging and YouTube as last priority even though YouTube and blogging is one of the things that I really enjoy doing. I still upload every Monday and Thursday on my YouTube channel without failing because I had filmed a lot of videos and edited them while I had time last month. But for blogging, I wasn't able to upload and I feel really bad. I have a lot of blog ideas that I want to write for this blog and I can't wait for the day to come where I have a bit of spare time to spend on my blog.

Relationship
My boyfriend was busy with his career and I'm happy for him. Sometimes, I think I get a bit lonely I guess. But, I have other things that I like to do without him so, I don't really act selfish in front of him. I want him to rest during the weekends so I don't really go out with him. 

Since we don't really live other so either going out or going to his house and spend time were the only ways to spend time with him. But I don't want to disturb his family just to see him so I'll be a good girl who don't act like a child and act selfish just to spend time with him. 

Since I'll be 22 and our relationship has been going towards 4 years, I've been hearing some marriage conversations from my teachers and friends and other people. People told us to get married soon, buy a HDB flat and have kids but I feel that both of us are not yet ready to start a life together very soon. I mean, some people don't spend 4 years being girlfriend, boyfriend to get married so within some standards, being in a relationship of 4 years is very long and needs to get married asap. Well, that is some people's beliefs but I beg to differ. 

Yes, I can understand being in a steady 4 years relationship without much fights or break ups and reunite situations is quite admirable. For my case, I consider myself "a kid" since I am still in school, not working nor have working experience without income, don't know the world so I consider marriage and having kids is too "adult" to do. I'll probably get married one day but not so soon. Having kids will be wayyyy later in life or may not happen at all because both of us can't really stand kids hahaha. So, I don't really think much about marriage or kids these days but since I hear some people talking about it so that's my answer for now. 

Right now, I just want to focus on passing my GCBA and get the cert, decide on whether I want to proceed to MBA or go job hunting. That's my main topic that I'm concerned so far. 

These are the thoughts that I have during these weeks. Some very deep topics but I can guarantee that some answers will not be changed so fast. That's it for now. I'll talk to you in my next blogpost. Let me know what are the main thing that is on your mind right now in the comments.
Have fun and I love ya'll. 

Life Update

It's been a while I publish a blogpost here on my blog as I was really busy with school. Being a master degree student is tough since the lecturers are a lot stricter and the subject that I was studying was a lot harder since I'm not familiar with them.
Well, being a procrastinator as I am, I always tend to do my assignments last minute and even though I have been wanting to change that habit, it's been a tad bit difficult to change it completely.

There are a lot of blogposts that I want to write as soon as possible but I think my hands are tied until April as I'm rushing all my five assignments which will be due in 3rd week of March.

If you want content from me, I upload every Monday and Thursday on my YouTube channel so please feel free to watch my videos. As for my blog, I'll be updating soon since taking photos and edit them are the most time consuming part of my blogging process. So, I'll make sure to find time to take blog photos and start publishing them.

Wish me luck, and I love ya'll.

My Week in Photos (Week 7)

Ahh, another week of disaster. I had my wrist ligament torn from the stressed wrist and even now, I still need to wear the wrist band to take my wrist tender stay in one place. With the tore ligament, I had to take accounting exam which I didn't do well. My hand was really painful while writing and because of that, the handwriting is really bad. The teacher did ask me whether I want to take advance circumstances for this exam but I took the exam and I'm hoping that I'll pass the exam.

My week in photos (Week 6)

This week was full of assignments, lessons and dinner with the boy's family. The food was not bad at the place that we ate for the end of Chinese New Year holidays. I had to get back to school which I dreaded to go but because of the attendance, I went to the classes. 

My Week in Photos(Week 5)

Happy Chinese New Year! This is the year of the Chicken and my week has been super great! I was in one week break from school and I have been eating loads since there were dinners with my bf's family. I got quite a number of red packets as well so woo hoo! 

I'm sorry for not updating on my blog. I just wanted a full rest during the week and now I'll be going back at it. For YouTube wise, I created another channel called "sheisreyar" so please go and support my channel. I'll be uploading more short but nicely created videos on that channel. Don't worry, I'll still be uploading more videos on my main channel "Reyar Kyaw" so please subscribe if you haven't. 

How was your week? Did you celebrate Chinese New Year? Let me know!
