I started spending all my waking hours watching kdrama and playing Overwatch and my co-blogger became a Bookstagrammer and started her own new blog. Cut to today where I'm still spending and obscene amount of time watching kdrama and a slightly less obscene amount of time playing Overwatch. But over time, I started to get that familiar itch to create things. And I decided I'd bring the blog back (and maybe the Booktube channel too, sometime in the near future) BUT I'd also talk about other things. I
