(Some big spoilers, but this is not a review of the entire season, FYI ;P!)

Princess Agents, a 58-episode Chinese drama released in 2017, based on a novel by Xiao Xiang Dong Er, is hands down one of my favorite dramas ever. It takes place in a time of civil war, when poor citizens were kidnapped and forced into slavery, and is referred to as the most watched Chinese drama of all time. The story mainly revolves around a young woman named Chu Qiao who has lost a large portion of her memory, and has been forced into slavery in the service of the Yuwen family. While at the Yuwen estate, she witnesses and is dragged into the inner chaos as family members target each other in an effort to raise their own status. Although there is a bit of romance, and a ton of action, Princess Agents is at its core a story of revenge.

Self-Care Sunday: Con Edition

August 5, 2018

It has been a few weeks since San Diego Comic Con, giving me enough time to rest and relax and regain my energy. Because I no longer live in San Diego, attending meant traveling. I am fortunate to have friends who let me stay with them for a few days, and fortunate that I had a hotel room for a few days as well. I focused on one day at a time, missed a few things, focused on enjoying the moment, and I had one of the best SDCC experiences I've had in all the years I have attended. But being away from home and being at a convention is exhausting. Upon returning, I focused on self care, which unfortunately meant neglecting the blog for a little bit. This makes me think of time management and seeing to my personal needs post-con. For me, this blog matters, and sharing things that may be helpful, even to just one person, is very important. But spending time with loved ones matters more, as is taking care of my overall health.
