Happy Blogiversary!!!

Hey everyone!

Kpop9019 officially turns 1 year old today! Wow, time passes by so fast. (I know the day is almost over; I’m taking a short break from studying my finals T^T)

I remember, last year, I started this blog since I was bored and wanted to share my passions on the Internet. It was a hot summer afternoon (hotter than this year’s weather, what happened to the summer weather this year?) I was binge listening to Tiffany’s “Heartbreak Hotel” and internally sobbing about finals when I finally mustered the courage and decided to start a blog. Everything was so new and exciting! I’m very thankful for the new learning experiences. I’ve met many other bloggers and read a lot more throughout the past year (for once lol). I’ve published 84 posts (this will be my 85th!) and had my first writer (besides me).

I want to thank all of my followers or anyone who just found this blog! Thank you for reading my content and for the support!! I know my posting schedule has been hectic, but I will try to fix that~

Please stay tuned for new and exciting content! THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!!!!

For spring break this year, I was able to travel to go travel to Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio! Tbh, these are just random pics I took during the trip and I was also very busy with all the traveling, so I apologize beforehand that I couldn’t take many scenic views of the states…

But without further ado, here they are:

Kuzu no Honkai Anime Review

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve written an anime review. Partially because I haven’t been watching animes (reverted to dramas and henceforth) and because the one I have been watching was new so there is only one new episode per week (which took forever to watch). Let’s break this anime up shall we?

However, they are not the only ones in pain and there are also characters with a double personality.
