Discovering K-Pop: Do you know BTS?

Discovering K-Pop: Do you know BTS?

I started dipping my toes into K-Pop last August when I heard “Waste It On Me” by Steve Aoki & BTS which led to me falling into an ocean of Blackpink songs. I completely bypassed BTS somehow despite loving “Waste It On Me.” Yeah… I don’t know either! Not to worry though, I did eventually find myself back in the arms of BTS, but until then, I did what I always do when I want to know more about something: I turned to Twitter!

I was given so many recommendations including a master YouTube playlist from Mel in Anime Land that had so much early K-Pop for me to try out. Unfortunately, a lot of these songs aren’t on Spotify so I made a much smaller YouTube watch list of songs from Mel’s wonderful and extensive list. I even had some individual songs recommended to me from some of my blogging friends! Then, like the universe had heard me, a few of my fellow bloggers shared their K-Pop playlists and favorite songs. Before I knew it, I had fallen down a rabbit hole of amazing Korean/English lyrics, sweet vocals, and beats that lifted me up.

Spoilers! I’m Back! What’s Next?

Spoilers! I’m Back! What’s Next?

Hello again readers and fellow bloggers!

If you are unaware, I took off from blogging for the month of May to focus on my mental health and get my life in order now that I am working from home indefinitely which still seems to be the case, fortunately and unfortunately. COVID-19 has taken a massive toll on me, my family, and my mental health. Taking a break felt like the best course of action, and I was right! I am back from my break and feeling more comfortable, refreshed, and organized. So let’s chat about what I did on my break and what’s next for A Geeky Gal & Megan Marie YT!

Spoilers! I’m Taking a Short Break

Spoilers! I’m Taking a Short Break

Hello readers and fellow bloggers!

I’ve made the executive decision to take the month of May off.

Like everyone else, I’ve been struggling with self isolating. With the news that I may be working from home until the end of summer, I’d like to use my personal time to get my things in order to make a more permanent place to work more comfortably. I also need to focus on some self care and get my new schedule settled so I can be my best self for my family and all of you.

I do have good news though. I will continue to post videos to YouTube every Friday and every other Wednesday as my mental health permits. My patrons recently voted on a new video idea that will be going up some time this month so keep those YouTube notifications on! I also still have a lot of awards and tags to do, and I will get to them when I come back in June!

Thank you all for understanding. In order to be my best self, I have to take a break. See y’all in June.

Living Life Through Animal Crossing [OWLS Hope Tour]

Living Life Through Animal Crossing [OWLS Hope Tour]

If you haven’t heard of OWLS before, it stands for Otaku Warrior for Liberty and Self-Respect. We are a group of content creators promoting the acceptance of everyone regardless of their disabilities, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and religion. Each month with the help of pop culture, literature, and other forms of media, we explore real-world topics through these online tours, sharing personal experiences and analyzing pop culture.

If you want to know more about OWLS, you can take a look at the blog here.

If you had told me that I would be working from home self isolating for what could be almost half the year back in January, I wouldn’t have believed you. I had so much to look forward to: Animal Crossing in March, a BTS concert in June, seeing family and friends for holidays… Even going thrift shopping has been cancelled as we all try to stay inside for everyone’s health. But that’s exactly what happened. Plans were cancelled. Life feels cancelled, but at least I still had Animal Crossing to look forward to in March… A light in the darkness for most gamers and “non-gamers” alike.
