NEW FRIENDS ARE GOLDEN

So, a lot and nothing at the same time has happened since I last updated… I've kind of (actually I have) figured out the direction for OPPA BLOG and where to go from here.

When I first started OPPA BLOG, I had a few former friends wanting to help make it a thing, and together we became this huge team working together, which at the time was like a dream to me. 

But with that came the figuring out the dynamics of working in a team. While it's not that I don't play well with others, working in a team developed into a situation where everything that I had wanted to do with OPPA BLOG was going on the back burner. Suddenly the goal was about making OPPA BLOG into something way bigger than it was ever supposed to be - all of this before we ever really even began! And instead of speaking up, I let things just happen - until I got kicked out of the group.


But then once I restarted this project, and even as I began doing it by myself, I was repeating history. This time I was alone, and I didn't even realise until like a week ago: I was trying to make OPPA BLOG into something big, instead of letting it grow organically. So, I decided I'm just going to have OPPA BLOG happen and have it grow slowly instead of trying to go for a big launch and all that junk.

That being said, stay tuned for OPPA BLOG happening within the next few weeks. I just need to get a few things organised and things. I'll still keep this blog to voice my thoughts and things with OPPA BLOG and maybe put some BTS stuff or something. 

What else…?

I've also made some new friends recently, it was a nice surprise… I actually wanted to interview this band for OPPA BLOG but it somehow turned into this whirlwind of a friendship, and I couldn't be more happy and excited to have the band on OPPA BLOG soon. Everyone should go check out the band we hate jh.



I actually went out with Anna (of IndiefulROK), who I’ve written about before, on Thursday night and we attempted to have a low-key night out much different from our usual shenanigans filled with too much booze (and good company). But it somehow ended up with us drinking again till 3AM (which I guess is still earlier than our usual 6AM ways…?)

I called JH of we hate jh over to join us at around 3AM, but the night ended up early due to unforeseen circumstances. So he basically just walked me to the bus stop and waited with me till the bus came… If that's not friendship, I don't know what is.


And with that said, I forgot to congratulate we hate jh for making it to the finals of Hello Rookie 2014!!! 

So well-deserved. Everyone send them love and good vibes so they can win the whole thing and have an easier time making their first album (which is in the slow process of happening right now). I can write a million things on how hardworking they are but I won't bore you. Instead I will say considering they've only been a band (officially) for about a year, I think they deserve all the help they can get. Out of everyone who made it to the finals, they are the underdogs… and who doesn't like rooting for the underdog?

What else did I want to say? I promise to get on this… I really do. I don't know why fear cripples me in every aspect of my life ever since I moved here. Honestly, I just need some hugs lately… maybe I should go to the puppy or cat cafe to lift my spirits up. They have healing powers, right? 

we hate jh on social media-- listen to their music, drop them a line, be a creep and lurk! Tell them I sent you, I get a dollar for every referral I make… I'm kidding. Maybe jh will buy me a cookie or something though (I'm dreaming big).
