Sometimes things really just happen in life.



Like me attending Seoul Fashion Week this season. Through my friend Chi who lives here in Seoul I met a new friend called Truong and through him I got to know that Chau and Thang (Decao) are in Seoul, and some other people. He got me some tickets and suddenly I'm in the middle of this mess haha. If you really live for the exciting moments in life, Fashion Weeks & parties are totally what you need in your life. That adrenaline you feel when you either get shot or are going around shooting. I recently bought a new camera & lens so I bought it with me and I just couldn't stop snapping people haha. These are just some of the 1150 photos I took. I couldn't put them on my Macbook because it took too long, so I uploaded the photos I edited with VSCO. Follow my Seoul Fashion Week album on Facebook or my Instagram for updatessss. I must indeed admit that it's fun ! But I have so much work back home, can't forget about that.

Lack of Leisure

I don't really have hobbies beside the internet.Β Β 


Internet saved my life by making me becoming the person Iam today, but at the same time it took a lot of reality away from me. In Vietnam it's even worse because you don't spend a lot of time going around in the city (or at least I don't). Most of the time I'm on my phone or on my Macbook and the only time I really do not use any devices is either when I have to shower or when I'm walking my dogs. I see reports about internet camps and I think myself that I should attend one. I'm addicted next level and almost everything I do is related to work. So I need to find a hobby. I need to find a hobby and someone to do that hobby with. I don't really feel like I have a lot of friends where I live and I love the girls at Floralpunk but I don't think they want to hang with me after work or on the weekend haha. Β 

I feel like my mental health is at stake and I simple need that time to not think about work and anything and just focus on something else. Be it yoga or Korean class. I really want to add something to my agenda that helps me to relax. My current form of relaxation is doing 'chill' Floralpunk work like researching photos or creating new concepts. but actually it's still work no matter whether I enjoy it or not. Actually working out is a very good option to forget thinking because you will be too busy thinking that you want to die on that threadmill haha.

We are setting up our new office soon, and I ordered a bunch of stuff from Ikea Guangzhou. Literally can't wait ! Β 

insomnia thoughts I

On working behaviour, being a boss and marketing.

I guess I'm the creative kind of type, who occasionally gets a spark of inspiration, and then needs to realise her idea right away. Just that I'm not an artist but a marketer, and in business and marketing you can't just throw a new idea in every day and realise it right away. In marketing there needs to be strategy and organisation, but that's so not me.

Back in school, whenever I had to write an essay or prepare anything in advance, I'd just procrastinate until the day before the deadline was due and I pulled off all my ambitions, creativity and hours of sleep to finish whatever I had to finish. I've always been that kind of, thinking something, doing right away kind of person. It's hard for me to plan things weeks in advance and then stay patient with it and work it off slowly. When I plan something and want to get it done, I work on it for hours, days and nights until it's done. I can't do those two-hours a day, 5-days a week thing. But that's extremely bad. Especially in a team-work environment, that requires planning and organisation to get things done. 

Maybe it's just because I didn't divide my team properly in proper sections and groups. I just always speak out my thoughts to all of them and then they feel stressed. Rather than talking about my ideas to the exact person relevant. Aya, being a boss is so fucking hard. But having me as a boss is also hard I guess.

I always wished that I was that super organised and neat and logically thinking kind of person with a calm aura. But nah, I ended up as the one who always gets excited really fast and freaks out really fast. How did I end up like this ? I'm probably going to die of burnout because of these features of mine.
