Loki is a great show, one of the best from Marvel this year. So what makes this such a hit among the amazing content that the MCU has already produced? What favors does a conceptually rich show do to the development of a character fans have loved for a decade?
I realized recently that, though I’ve discussed aspects of being a fan of BTS on this blog a couple of years ago, I’ve never gone into depth on why I like them or why their music has meant so much to me. Right now, I’ve been a fan of them for nearly 4 years, and … Continue reading Top BTS Songs–and Why

Recently I’ve finished reading “Listen to Your Heart” by Kasie West, and really enjoyed it. Last year I read both “Lucky in Love” and “P.S. I Like You”, which served as great introductions into her work. I don’t really read contemporary teenage romance very much, preferring epic fantasy and worldbuilding and kings and princesses and … Continue reading On Kasie West, and Why I Might (Kind-of-Sort-of) Like Contemporary Romance Now
I regrettably haven’t read as much as I used to, and in an attempt to get back into it, I bought a set of books that I’d seen one of my favorite bloggers, Deborah O’Carroll, recommend. Because they are by the same author and I read them so close together, I decided to put my … Continue reading Echo North, and Beneath the Haunting Sea (by Joanna Ruth Meyer) — A Book Review
So the day finally came! About a month ago, I bought tickets to the documentary Burn the Stage. It focused on South Korean boyband BTS’s 2016 Wings World Tour. Since it had originally been released earlier this year on Youtube as a Youtube Red show, I had used my free trial to watch it when … Continue reading Burn the Stage: A Movie Review
It’s been a while since I’ve posted, hasn’t it? I do have excuses planned, really, but the only true excuse is school. Math is hard. But a few weeks ago in my Bye Bye Birdie review, I mentioned that I was going to go see the touring cast of In the Heights at the Duke Energy … Continue reading Duke Energy Center: In the Heights (A Musical Review)
So the day finally came--the day I’ve been waiting for, the day I was waiting to get here just so I could write a passionate review. I finally attended my first Model United Nations conference. To make things better (and more overwhelming) it was a crisis committee conference, the most stressful, mentally taxing, and fun … Continue reading A Review of my First Model United Nations Conference + A Rant (of Sorts)
On Saturday, I went with my parents to see the Clayton Youth Theater’s presentation of the musical Bye Bye Birdie. We’ve been to a few of their productions (The Little Mermaid and Anne of Green Gables) and every time I see them I feel a bit jealous. These kids range from 13 to 18, and … Continue reading Clayton Youth Theater: Bye Bye Birdie (A Musical Review)
Earlier today I had the idea to start a series--”Why I Like:____”, in which I’ll talk about something and explain my reasons behind why I personally like it. It’s pretty self-explanatory. Get ready for a long post--I’m about to talk about one of my favorite subjects! I came to terms with the … Continue reading Why I Like: Doctor Who
