【S】Why We Find Ourselves Binge-Watch This Japanese Reality TV Show for Two Weekends

Hello,

I’ve been feeling pretty lazy this weekend, so I thought I’d focus and write a post to feel more productive. (Although – I did do my taxes yesterday and went for a beautiful run this morning, so I should give myself kudos for that ;))

In my last post, I mentioned one of my goals this year is to be more intentional with my time spent outside of work. With all that being said, I probably haven’t been as “intentional” for the past 2 weeks (especially weekends – did I mention I felt pretty lazy this weekend?), and admittedly, one of the reasons is “Terrace House”, a Japanese Reality TV show on Netflix.

Ok, before I lose you here…hear me out for a couple of minutes. First of all, I’ve never written about a TV show before. But the fact that I’m spending time writing this out…you gotta know there’s something more to it.

I’ll admit, when I first heard about this show, I was skeptical. Even after half-watching and skipping through the first few episodes, I was still skeptical, and mentioned to Jimmy that I’d stop watching. But for some reason, I continued to click “Next Episode” to find out what would happen next…

【S】Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion @ SAM

I’ve always enjoyed going to museums. No matter what type of exhibition I go to, I hardly ever feel disappointed. Most of the time, I leave the museum feeling inspired, satisfied, and even recharged. But somehow, I just don’t go as much as I wish I do- and there really is no excuse for it…Though I know that every time I do go, I wish I can go more. Hopefully this post will remind and encourage me to pay more visits to the nearby museums in the future. 🙂

In my opinion, you really don’t have to know art to appreciate art. The beauty of it is that you can interpret it in any way you’d like. Honestly, I’m not a connoisseur in any type of art- but that could partially be why I love museums so much- I always learn something new. I know this because I’ve written a few blog posts on the previous exhibitions that I’ve gone to- and most of the time I’m more inclined to write when I feel inspired. 😉 Perhaps I can consider sharing them again in this blog!

Last weekend I had the pleasure to finally seeing the “Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion” exhibition in Seattle Art Museum (SAM). Although SAM is still incomparable to MoMA and MET in terms of the scale, I consider we Seattleites pretty blessed already! It’s easily accessible in downtown, and in the past we’ve had a few exhibitions featuring famous artists such as Picasso and Gauguin (I absolutely enjoyed them!) And this time, it is SAM’s first exhibit focusing entirely on fashion- how cool is that? 🙂
