    Beginning of a New Life

    Hello Hello! It’s been a wild week for me and I’m glad I finally have the time to sit down and update Hoshiru on my new life. On March 22nd, 2020, I moved from my hometown, Seattle to Japan. I made the decision to move to Japan to take on a Assistance Language Teacher (ALT) position back in January. Now that it’s the end of March, I’m here typing this up in Japan, crazy how fast life can change. Ever since landing in Japan, I pretty much started with work business right away.

    Don’t Wanna Cry — a chronicle by SEVENTEEN

The entire experience went by so fast it felt like a dream. I’ve been a fan of SVT’s music since 2017 when they released their song “Don’t Wanna Cry” and I soft stan them throughout 2018.

    An iKONIC’s LOVE SCENARIO

    Allow me to introduce you to iKON, a South Korean septet boyband from YG Entertainment who debuted in 2015. It’s been a while since I fangirled over a boyband to this extreme and probably my first time fangirling over a boyband that all the members are younger than me. I always like to hear stories of when other fans got into their group so here I am sharing my iKONIC love scenario. It’s going to be a long one so, brace yourself. How It Started I’ve heard of iKON before in the past with their song MY TYPE but I never really looked into them as an artist. In late…
