School has finished and I am patiently waiting for my friend to finish her audition for the upcoming school production so we can walk home. I am sort of dreading going home because I have an English essay to finish for tomorrow. I will let you in on a secret… I have barely started. I know, I know. ‘Why are you doing this instead?’, ‘Get to work, lazy butt!’ I swear I have tried to work on it but it is just so boring. I have this amazing ability to find a way around everything. It takes a certain skill set but it is easy to achieve with practice.
Procrastination has become easier over the years with the creation of the internet, making special mention to YouTube and Spotify. As I am writing this, I have Lotto by EXO playing in my ears, and I am trying to resist the urge to dance. As I can’t dance and am still at school with the teachers walking around me, it would be quite embarrassing. And on comes MAMA the EXO-K version. Love this song… ANYWAY, as I was saying it is easier to become distracted nowadays.
So it is now a few hours later and while I have made progress on my English essay, I still can’t be bothered to do it. I mean, it apparently has to be 1000 words and I am going to struggle to get to 700. Has anyone read The Boat by Nam Le? I preferred Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden from last year. Oh well, it will be over soon. My essay on the other hand…. even Ailee can’t encourage me today. Tomorrow morning will be quite stressful, I reckon. I don’t recommend to anyone to leave an essay to the last minute, even if it is dead boring and you would rather light yourself on fire than think about it. It is a bad habit that I wish to change, but English just isn’t helping.
I have put up the link to a lovely little video that will help in your procrastination process.
When my friend first introduced me to a popular K-Pop group, BTS, I had no way for foreseening the hold that it would have on my life.
It started with BTS. Gorgeous Jungkook, sweet Jimin, sassy Suga, princess Jin, cheeky V, and the leader Rap Monster. I was drawn in through their amazingly tight choreography and their resonating lyrics.
Next came SEVENTEEN. 11 members, 3 units, come together as 1 team (17). At first I was surprised with the sheer number of the group. Having not much experience with K-Pop, I wasn’t used to the group sizes. Mingyu… 💜.
Then followed Ailee. The beautiful pop diva. The American-born singer reminds me of Jessica Mauboy and Jordan Sparks. I love her power and sassy lyrics with ‘I Will Show You’ rivalling Taylor Swift’s break up songs.
Finally came EXO. Learning their names was the easiest of all the groups. The first song I heard was Monster. There was something about Chanyeol that forced me to watch hour after hour of EXO videos.
The sad thing about being an Aussie K-Pop fan is the language barrier. BTS released a new video 11pm last night and unfortunately when I tried to watch it at 11:30pm I couldn’t understand what Kookie (Jungkook) was saying. However, I know that subtitles will soon be at my rescue thanks to some amazing people.
I would recommend all of these idols to people who are interested in K-Pop or want to try something new. I am loving it and maybe you will too.

Good morning all! It is currently 8:40 am on this lovely Monday. Usually I would be at school now, with the bell just signaling homeroom but today is a public holiday. Labor Day to be more precise. So I am taking advantage of my day off and am still in bed.
So, me…. well, I am a year 11 Australian who loves history and following my sports teams. The historical time period that I probably know the most about is Tudor England. I enjoy watching AFL, cricket, hockey, and tennis.
My plan for this blog is to post often about whatever I like basically. One day it may be about the history of cricket while another could be a review of the latest blockbuster. It depends on my interests at that moment in time. Hopefully you like history.
I hope that your day, whatever the time may be, is going splendidly and that you are enjoying every minute that you have been given. I have to get up now since I can hear movement in the kitchen.
