The Secret Life

The Secret Life

Many coworkers at her job have wondered how Betsy remains udderly zen during work hours. She rarely complains and is always helpful towards others.

One day, a coworker asked during her lunch break. “Betsy, what’s the secret to remaining calm?”

“Oh…I just work out on a frenzy during my weekends,” Betsy replied nonchalantly.

To this day, no one suspected Betsy as the type to enter in mosh pits during heavy metal concerts.

I love music. But if there’s one genre I’ll listen to forever, it is heavy metal. As odd as it sounds, it keeps me focused and zen. Probably with the high energy factors in most of the songs. Who knows how my brain works.

Speaking of high energy, I went to see Papa Roach, Bad Wolves and Asking Alexandria perform at The Rooftop in Pier 17 on August 11, 2019. I was fortunate to see the email from Spotify a week before the event when it was announced that Papa Roach will be performing in NYC as they’re promoting their new album Who Do You Trust.

The atmosphere was really great. It’s been ages since I visited South Street Seaport with my husband. So it was a nostalgic experience for the both of us when we saw the area newly renovated after it was hit by Hurricane Sandy.

We paid for the lounge upgrade and chilled out for a bit while we waited for the concert to start. Food wise, we tried out their sliders which were yummy. Highly recommend the lobster roll. I was stoked to see Tommy Vext (lead singer of Bad Wolves) up close as he was walking up to the concert area. After Bad Wolves performed, it was Asking Alexandria and then the main event, Papa Roach. Definitely worth the experience and a great way to end the weekend on a good note before heading back to work.ย 1BA0764D-E0B9-4FC8-A1BE-153827578EB9

One of my goals in life is to visit more heavy metal concerts. Maybe this year and next, it’ll happen more. Let’s see where life takes me.

Hope you’re having a fantastic Wednesday! Let me know in the comments if you’re a heavy metal fan.

Namaste,

Sing your heart out

Betsy is hoping to belt out some tunes for her future karaoke trip. Think she’ll have a chance? ๐Ÿค”


Hi friends ๐Ÿ‘‹ happy August! Can’t believe we are four months away until the end of the year! Time flies when you’re drawing Betsy and having fun ๐Ÿ˜…

The last time I remember singing was through the Smule karaoke app. It was really nice to see some of my favorite rock songs that I could belt out to when I was feeling down. Unfortunately, my son has this habit of telling me to keep quiet whenever I attempt to sing my favorite tunes out loud. Hence, this is why I prefer singing in the car. Maybe when my son starts Pre-K, I’ll get back on Smule and belt out some tunes while he’s at school.

Do you happen to sing? If so, what are your favorite go-to songs? Let me know in the comments below.

Namaste,
Diana

Earworm

Earworm

Lately, I’ve been getting more earworms every day when I wake up before I go to work.

I’m not sure if it’s my brain’s way of saying Take a break; listen to this tune that you haven’t heard since your high school years.

The last earworm was “Take on Me” by a-ha. Hey, my brain has good taste in music, after all.

Still, I find myself dancing to the tune when it gets worse and I can’t concentrate. Seems to be the method that works for me to get rid of it. Or am I really encouraging my earworm to stay in?

Apologies for the lack of comic updates. If you swing over to my main website, you’ll notice that I’ve been posting my updates on a visual novel that I’ve been creating during NaNoRenO 2019. The game is completed, so it’s expected to be released on March 28, 2019.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to draw more comics until then ๐Ÿ˜Š

What earworms you’ve encountered lately? Would love to hear your thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ

Namaste,

Moo-ving along to the Music

Moo-ving along to the Music

Every time I listen to music, it makes me feel happy and alive. I don’t have a particular favourite. I try my best to be as open minded as possible when listening to different genres. Lately, I’ve been digging some lo-fi/ chillhop tracks on Spotify.

What are your favourite songs? Would love to hear your thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ

Namaste,

-D.
