THURS, July 30
Welcome to my July monthly favorites post!
Finally we are one month away from my Bday month! I’m not sure what I’m going to do during covid for my 25th birthday… hopefully buy a house! Let me manifest this lol
Here is my July monthly favorites/recap.

July Monthly Favorites and Moments
July 8th: a weekend in chicago
I visited Chicago for 4 days for a semi-family emergency and now I’m officially the owner of a restaurant. My sibling and me are basically legally the owners, my mom runs it. It’s doing pretty great we make like a ton every month so that’s good. I hope we will be able to open more restaurants and live off those. Maybe just 2 would be great!
this is johnny and yuta from nct – if you don’t know johnny is from chicago – the second idol i know from my city (peniel from btob is the other)
My time in Chicago was pretty amazing and I can’t wait to move back. Living here in California, thought if it’s possible to move back home and still find ways to eat the way I do in Cali. Chicago has only greasy/fried vegan food or just vegan food with oil and sugars etc. and the grocery stores are pretty unhealthy. I will be doing my best to find small farms and locations that can help keep me healthy, whenever I do permanently move back.

Body Mentions: Becoming a healthier person
Well this month I have realized I have lost a lot of weight.
When I went to Chicago, I tried on some old jeans that I had stored away to sell because before coming to California in March of this year, they did NOT FIT ME. Now they do and I am super happy!
I might make a post of this, noone asked but I would like to document my weight love LOL
Like I’ve honestly never felt so fit in my life, not even when I was 22 and weighed around 130lbs. That was my lowest in adulthood. Now I think I way less than 130 and it’s great considering how short I am.
My favorites: GAMING GAMING AND MORE GAMING
I was gaming a lot some days, usually on the weekends and at night. I actually got 19 subscribers now! I’m really happy about that.
I’m gonna work on making more videos, I would like to do gaming and commentary videos on youtube because I’m not a very photogenic person and I also don’t have that aesthetic touch so my lifestyle videos would be pretty bland.
Thank you to Weird Louise for visiting my stream! If you visit my stream you can leave comments and i MIGHT see them. I don’t respond right away because I can’t see the message unless I open it in the PS4 settings. Soon I will set it up so that you can see the comments on screen but I don’t have that kind of set up yet, it’s in the works!
July 27: editing videos and trying other things!
So i edited my first video and i think i did an OK job for my first time. Its just my gameplay from this animal game.
I’m thinking of doing more editing, maybe I’ll try making those kpop videos, or feel good commentary, not sure yet. Any input would be appreciated.
Check out my first edit video below it’s very cheesy because it’s just a little phone app game that I recorded myself playing. I actually want to uninstall it because there’s much better things I can be using my time with instead of playing this kind of video game to be brutally honest.
I’m also using other types of apps. I realized it’s better to use small apps than to try to get followers on big ones like Instagram, Twitch, ETC.
So I’m figuring out where to spend most of my time but also get money from those places. Blogging is a side job and I don’t get much money from it, which is something I’m working on, but I’m looking elsewhere too so I’m not spending too much time on something that won’t help me in the future.
Songs I loved in July:
This month I didn’t listen to much music again, but here is what I found 🙂
Hawaiian Couple cover – Arin OHMYGIRL and Soobin
this is originally from this artist- Humming Urban Stereo. The song is absolutely my favorite! I love Arin but I think her voice is too high pitched for this song, but I still love it!
android apartment – Future Girlfriend
this song is so cute and nice I love it!
My Identity – Moe Shop with SEIJ
I actually found the remix of this song on soundcloud but it was too much for me so I found the original (this one) and I love the singing but I don’t like that “funky” noise going on. It’s too much for me but I still like the singing and can’t ignore it.
Round 2 – Pentagon
Thanks to Chloe from midnightwander for sharing this song on her post.
Now I’m sharing it with you all cause i think it’s so fun and cute!
yesterday – yukika
Okay this song is so cute and I want to listen to it while having a picnick!
Web Drama: the world of my 17
I really love Arin from Oh My Girl, she is super precious and sweet. Now her baby face has become more sophisticated, it’s like I watched my child grow up… even though she’s not that much younger than me…
but she’s on this web drama I recently found out about! It’s basically about bullying.
Mijoo and Jisoo from Lovelyz on Battle Trip
I love watching traveling videos especially with celebrities. They show where to travel for cheap, or for a bargain but still have a good time.
pick me with lovelyz Mijoo
this show just randomly showed up on my feed and I’m 100% sure it’s all thanks to Mijoo being a good salesperson and being able to show herself off and anything she is wearing. This video was the start of all that promotions she’s getting now, at least that’s what I believe.
and now she’s able to have her own show where she sells products lol and she does more too
Spoonz and Nuest
I love spoonz products so much. They’re basically what b21 is for BTS, but Spoonz are the characters based on Nu’est. I love them much more than the b21 characters! Anyways, Spoonz helps promote their products with Nu’est on these lil shows. They’re so fun to watch and I just want to buy all Spoonz merch!
Nu’est Nucket List (bucket list show)
So this show is just super cute I adore it and you guys should check them out. What I like about nuest is that they are SO CLOSE like it’s an ideal friendship kind of group and it’s so wholesome.
Wow, Instagram is no joke. also I’m deciding on not using instagram as much anymore. it’s a great way to post images and all that, but I just can’t stand how they work with trump, facebook, ice, don’t remove pedos, or nazis etc. I’m tired of it. I’d rather use apps that aren’t friendly with all those toxic companies and people.
Goals: find a image documenting app similar to instagram but for now, back to sharing my photos on here? like i should be?
i was even less active this month than june… so not much growth again. I guess I’m only on Twitter because it’s honestly more fun than Instagram for me. I only like IG for sharing photos, but I don’t agree with their morals at all as a company. Twitter on the other hand, still delete wrong posts sometimes that aren’t as harmful as others, but I still think it’s better than IG.
Today’s Stats: 248 followers
Pinterest has been good to me but then bad for some weeks when I was kind of inactive but then I got my groove back again. The main goal is to reach 10 million views a month and keep it there. No more small goals for me, i just want to make it to 10 million from now on.
Today’s Stats: 6k follows and 6m monthly views (i met my goals from last month)
Goals: 10m million monthly views!
So this month I was SOOO close to 5 thousand monthly views, I’m kinda shocked now because I’m not so sure what I did other than use pinterest so my views will go up, and I guess it worked!
For August I plan to reach a 300+ daily view goal. I get about 150 views a day on average so we need to step it up so that this year I can get more job opportunities through my site and get myself out there.
- Today’s Stats: 4.7k monthly views, 150 daily view avg
- Goals: 300+ daily views, 5k+ monthly views, 300+ follows.
Thanks for reading my July Monthly Favorites! Hope you enjoyed!
Welcome to August. Still have zero plans for this month because people don’t want to stop spreading covid so they’re ruining 2020 for the rest of us. Yeah I’m annoyed, I didn’t expect to have a covid bday too lol
Talk to me whenever you need to <3
