It's that time of the month when I go on my YouTube spiral. I can't help it. You click on one video and then before you know it, the sun has set, you've skipped 2 meals and you're still in bed. Welcome to my life.

I didn't even know there was a White House Correspondents Dinner was still going on. It would have been nice to see another speech like this but I thought Hasan Minhaj did a good job, all things considered.

I'm also very excited for Master of None to come back into my life so seeing Aziz Ansari on Vogue's 73 Questions just made me all the more excited. How adorable is he, really?

I didn't know there was a sequel and I didn't know Channing Tatum was going to be in Kingsman but it's a pretty rad trailer with a really good reveal in the end. Plus My Way playing in the background? I'm dead.

And all cultural appropriation aside, I'm really excited about John Mayer's new album and this song is pretty much on repeat in my head. I can never unseen John Mayer dancing but it comes with the territory I suppose.

April was pretty crazy despite there being less days than March. I also spent the 'least' amount of days in Jakarta (which made me really cherish the days I spent in Singapore). Plus, I had some pretty awesome trips this month -- one planned, the other unplanned. Here's to quasi-spontaneity.

Loving: Taipei wasn't too bad! I would say I loved that it was unexpected and crept up on me when I least expected it. I love that I was able to spend time with my sister and that I was also able to travel to Hong Kong with friends. Seriously a good time. I need more of this in my life.

Reading: I'm really bad at reading these days. I started All the Lives I want and it's been a series of interesting essays. I really need to get more serious about reading. I'm definitely not going to reach last year's record but also, I'm scared I wont even reach my 12 book goal. Pathetic. I blame podcasts and Tsum Tsum!

Watching: I'm catching up with Grace and Frankie and it's such a joy to watch. All the characters are so funny and amazing and I just want to grow old like them minus the gay husband portion. I'm also pretty excited about The Handmaiden's Tale as depressing and realistic it's getting.

Listening To: Lots and lots of John Mayer. The entire album was pretty much on repeat but ALSO, my wonderfully talented brother, Pietro worked on an EP and I have to say, from an objective third party bystander, it's pretty damn awesome. I wish I were this creative and could channel my energy toward something tangible

Working On: Still my fitness. Not only did I hike this month but I also signed up for a half-marathon in December. The hikes in Hong Kong and Taiwan killed my legs for a minimum of 3 days and a maximum of 1 week. How insane is that? I need to get better at this. Also, I need to start training for the half-marathon. Sure, it's in December but I barely survived the 10K last year. What have I done?

Anticipating: My weekend in Vietnam next month! Totally unplanned too (you get a pattern here?) It's been a year plus since I've seen Sayaka and since I had nothing~ planned in May thus far, it would be nice to actually see her again even for a bit. So much for that plan of seeing her every month when she left.
This month, I technically spent the four days leading up to the 12th in Taipei and went home on the 12th so I thought it would be way more interesting to actually share photos of time I spent in Taipei (8-11 April) rather than the 12th which I spent on a plane and then at work.

Cheating, I know, but the photos would be have been wasted! And I'm too lazy to do a vacation post that would have been exhausting, so this is a nice happy medium, I'd like to think.

- Take 12 photos on the 12th of each month Cheating~ I know!
- Post the pictures chronological order
- Indicate the time, location, and a small comment
- Taken from Chad at 12 of 12
