My most played K-pop songs of 2018

Hey Subbies,

I hope my post before held all over. I literally wanted to get that post done before the new year and like I said before I had to wait till all the K-beauty enthusiast had a chance to get their two cents in. Okay, back to music and what I've been listening to this whole year. My Spotify playlist was pretty much on heavy rotation when I'm at the gym or at work this past couple of months. When I finally saw my final verdict I was like yeah that made sense. Most of my playlist was a mix of J-pop and K-pop because of my trip to Japan in October to help me learn Japanese for the trip. I'm kind of sad because I don't have a lot of time to practice anymore let alone go to the gym because of my new job.

Anyways, if you want to check my last years list then here your link to it. While you're at it you might as well check out my very late Halloween picks for this year too since most of the favs are on there too. I'm a little salty because I'm going miss hearing some of my favorites in the upcoming new year because they have been let go or left their companies. Omg for this list I had to break out an excel sheet because I had to figure out which ones I liked and listened to the most and wished YouTube would generate my own very song of the playlist for each year base on my history. Also, I would like for this new year for companies to stop sleeping on their girl groups and give them proper albums.

Life Update + Tokyo Trip

Hey Subbies,

As you can read from the title this is a little life update. Since I had some time off I can finally update you guys. Recently, I was able to find a job in my perspective field finally. However, I can't leave my old job because I have better benefits with my first job and other things tied to that job that my new job does not have on top of the pay is less than my first job however, I have more hours and opportunity to get over time. I pretty much have my hands-tied with my new job since it is thru the week and I had to cut my hours at my other job just enough to keep my benefits. In addition, I'm learning a new programs which is not the industry standard Adobe Suite and also learning how to do prints on different manufacturing materials. I'm pretty beat once I come home from work. This job is very much like the internship I had during my final semester of University so its very familiar yet it is a bit of a learning curve and immersive with a lot distractions from other coworkers in the office I have to really get use to. I bought some Starbucks coffee grounds to make my own coffee in the morning and thankfully, there is one across the street from my new job too and just received a Starbucks card for Christmas. However, I don't know about y'all but caffeine is not really helping sadly though. Anyways, I added some of the Tokyo Vlogs down below if anyone is interested in my trip also add a voice over so I hope you guys enjoy it. I need to still upload the last couple of videos to YT so if you want to subscribe you can. Lastly, I going to be doing my favorite/most played Kpop songs of 2018 so look out for that probably by Christmas or New Years.
