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.

Today’s prompt is about Easter and Spring. I was so delighted when I saw the questions for this Sunday! I haven’t ever really had the chance to talk about Easter on the blog and I think this has presented the perfect opportunity to do so. I know this year’s Easter is vastly different for everyone due to the current events, but taking on this prompt is shining a little light on the situation.

Disney+ has been out for a minute now, so I thought it would be a good time to talk about some of the content I’ve been enjoying so far. I still think Disney+ can use some improvements overall as I expected a product that mimicked Hulu and Netflix. I will say though that I am glad we have a great selection of old and new Disney movies and shows so that I can catch up or just relish in the nostalgia of my childhood if I want to. Overall, it’s a great subscription service if you love Disney. Let’s get to what I’ve been watching on Disney+.
