Spotify Playlist: K-Pop Love Songs

Spotify Playlist: K-Pop Love Songs

This month is all about L-O-V-E on A Geeky Gal, but y’all know I like to put my own spin things. I’ve got some romance posts planned like a round up of some of my own favorite V-Day posts, long distance date ideas, a Gaming After Dark comeback, and something with a little more… spice (if we’re not counting Gaming After Dark). And yes, that was a Tik Tok reference. Tik Tok is a recent pandemic obsession, but we’re moving on.

Since discovering K-Pop, I have been exploring new artists, because, let’s face it, K-Pop is more that just BTS and Blackpink. Don’t get me wrong; their songs always get me up and going – dancing, singing, and BTS and Blackpink have even gotten my partner into enjoying the Korean lyrics and pop beat! Since expanding my little K-Pop world, I have fallen head over heels for some of these songs on this new playlist that I created for the month of February.

A Geeky Gal Monthly Recap: January 2021

A Geeky Gal Monthly Recap: January 2021

Welcome to my January 2021 recap! We’ve made it through the first month of 2021 which honestly deserves a pat on the back after everything we gone through at the start of this year in the US. But we’re not here to talk about that right now. January 2021 had some new things for the blog and I’d really like to showcase that today! With the first week of February starting, let’s take a look at the month of January here on A Geeky Gal!

Highlights

Spoilers! 2021 Blog, YouTube + Personal Resolutions

Happy New Year, geeks! 2020 was hard year for all of us, and I know I’m not alone in saying that I hope 2021 is kinder and that I’m so glad 2020 is over. We’re not out of the woods yet with the pandemic, and many of us are still struggling, but I’m choosing to look forward to what else 2021 will (hopefully) give us. I hope you will too despite the hand we’ve been dealt.

In the last few years, there has been immense growth on my blog. This past year has been steady with a slight uptick in views and visitors compared to the year before last. I even gained about 300 followers! My YouTube channel also passed 150 subscribers! For someone who blogs and makes videos as a creative outlet and for fun, I feel very happy with the growth I’ve seen. I’ve had to think long and hard about what I want to focus on this year and how 2020 has shaped my future personal and blog resolutions. So let’s look at those 2021 resolutions now.

A Geeky Gal’s 2020 Yearly Recap

Last year I did my first ever yearly recap! I noticed many of you really enjoyed it so I wanted to bring it back for 2020 too! As always, there are some highlighted posts that I loved writing in 2020 as well as a few of my favorite and most viewed YouTube channel videos from this year! I included at least two top posts for each month of 2020 as I did take a couple of mental health breaks during the year. Some months saw more views than others so I included the most viewed and popular posts for those months.

Looking back at all of these posts fills me with so much gratitude and happiness despite how crummy 2020 was, and I am very much looking forward to 2021 with all of you! Let’s make next year even better!

Saturday Suggestion – Book: The Rise of Kyoshi (an Avatar, the Last Airbender Novel)

I can’t even remember the last time I wrote a book review for my blog (if ever?). After reading The Rise of Kyoshi though, I knew I needed to take to the blog for my honest thoughts about a book based upon one of the most renowned Avatars in the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra universe. We aren’t presented with the strong and powerful Kyoshi that is revered during Avatar, the Last Airbender. We are forced back in time to the very beginning of Kyoshi’s journey before she even knows that she is the Avatar, serving and befriending the false Avatar Yun. We travel with her on a heartbreaking journey as she discovers her past, her powers, and her true self.

6 Ways to Deal with Disney Depression

6 Ways to Deal with Disney Depression

Note: “Disney Depression” is not the same as clinical depression. This post is not meant to diminish real depression in any way.

With the world in the midst of a pandemic, vacations and trips have been cancelled while most of us self isolate in our homes. Like most people, my partner and I had to cancel all of our travel plans for 2020. While we have some hope that 2021 may present a safe opportunity to travel at some point, that time is far in the future as of the writing of this post. After honeymooning at Disney in 2019, we had hoped to re-create that experience in 2020. Obviously it wasn’t possible once the virus took hold.

We’ve been feeling pretty down about not being able to go back to Disney World to be perfectly honest. I know it seems silly considering how much has happened this year, politically and otherwise, but I strongly feel that the disappointment in unfulfilled plans is valid. Most of our lives have stopped moving forward. Most of us are confined to our homes, working in a makeshift office, and only leaving the house for appointments and grocery shopping. It’s completely normal to mourn what “should have been.” In an effort to combat this Disney Depression, a term coined for the feelings you get leaving the most magical place on earth and the time between before you are there again, I came up with 6 different ways to deal with the Disney blues.
