The Weekly Playlist (5)

Posted March 25, 2021 by Rowena in Features, Reviews | 4 Comments

One of my favorite things to do when I was back home in L.A. was to take drives with my friend B Nice so that we can listen to our newly discovered favorite songs by BTS. We both discovered BTS over the pandemic and have been crazy for all things BTS. When I moved to Vegas, those drives stopped but I decided that I’m going to use my blog to share what songs I’m listening to each week with both B Nice and everyone else who reads this blog.

This song is such a fun song to listen to when you’re cleaning the house because it’s an upbeat song that makes you want to get up and get your boogie on. The choreo on this song is amazing as well. If you’re interested in the meaning about this song, you can check out this post here.

I can’t believe that I haven’t added this song to a playlist post yet. This song slaps so hard and the music video is pretty dope too. The choreo, Suga’s part, J Hope’s opening and just everything about this song rocks my socks. So good. I’m not even mad that every time I hear RM’s part, I hear JK singing it in his cutesy voice that annoyed RM, haha. This song is an anthem to haters and it makes me so happy when I listen to it because talk your shit boys!

So a few weeks ago, my niece Chach got married and it’s become a thing in my family for the kids to perform a Wilson’s Grandkids dance and I’m always in charge of teaching it with Chloe’s help. In the past, we’ve danced to Glee’s cover of Marry You by Bruno Mars, to Love Never Felt So Good by Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson, and this time around, I wanted to dance to a BTS song but I was shot down at every turn (freaking haters) so…since I couldn’t do a BTS song, I put BTS choreography in our dance and the choreography that I used was from this very song, Idol. Idol is a great freaking song and seeing the kids figure out that the dance for Idol looks crazy familiar makes me laugh so much. This song is great and should be a part of your playlists and remember, don’t let anyone dictate how you feel about the things you like. As Jimin sings in this song, they can’t stop you loving yourself. 🙂

What songs are you on your playlist this week? Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be BTS. Share in the comments!

The Weekly Recap (161)

Posted February 16, 2021 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

The Weekly Recap is pretty self-explanatory. It’s a feature where I recap my week in books, movies, and kdramas. Since we’re still in a pandemic, I’m not doing much outside of my house and I really doubt you guys want to hear about my trips to the grocery store so stick around and let’s see what I got into this week.

What I Watched

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 3: Always and Forever | 4 out of 5
The Uncanny Counter | 5 out of 5
Time to Hunt | 4 out of 5
Burning | 3.5 out of 5

What I Read

What I Got

Love Yourself: 承 Her
Love Yourself: 轉 Tear
Love Yourself: 結 Answer

I’m collecting all of the BTS albums (the actual albums, not just on Apple Music or whatever) and so far, I’ve got the first three (2 Cool 4 Skool, O,RUL82?, and Skool Luv Affair) then I have the special edition of the Skool Luv Affair and the BE album. This weekend, I added these three albums to my collection so it’s been a super great week for me in terms of my BTS collection. As far as photo cards? I got a J Hope, a Jimin, and a Suga so woo hoo for more photo cards! I’m still waiting for a V since he’s my bias but I get just as excited for any photo card so I’ll patiently wait for my turn to nab a V photo.

The Weekly Recap (156)

Posted January 4, 2021 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

Hey everyone!

It was a quiet holiday season for me. I’m here in Las Vegas now, away from my family but with the way that things are going right now, it’s probably for the best. It hasn’t been an easy time lately with this pandemic and all of this political BS, it’s been tiresome. Brenna and my nephew RJ have been with us since before Christmas and they leave for L.A. tomorrow so I’m going to miss having them around. They’ll be back for a quick stop next week Sunday but she’ll be making her way back to Utah so after that visit, I won’t see her again until the last weekend in February for my niece’s wedding. My kid is truly a grown-up now. So am I, for that matter. I got a credit card for her for emergencies and I’ve never been able to do that for her before. We’re both grown-ups. LOL.

Anyway, I hope that everyone had a great holiday and that the pandemic isn’t kicking your asses too much.

Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

What I Watched

True Beauty | 4.25 out of 5
Run BTS | 5 out of 5
Run On | 3.5 out of 5
Naruto | 5 out of 5
All My Life | 2.5 out of 5

I’ve finally gotten a hold of my k-drama addiction. I’m not binge-watching shows that much these days and I’m watching the newer released k-dramas as they release weekly episodes. I’m watching True Beauty, Run BTS, Run On weekly but I’m binge-watching Naruto as well. I just got into Naruto right before the end of 2020 and I’m enjoying it so I’m watching it along with all of the other shows that I’m watching. I want to spank Naruto’s ass in every episode but I do really like the anime. The same can’t be said for Brenna’s movie pick for our New Year’s Eve, All My Life. That movie was super boring and I’m too old to pretend otherwise. It was a sad story for sure, even sadder because it’s based on a true story but the movie was boring to me. Ahh well.

What I Read

Twisted Creek by Jodi Thomas | 3.25 out of 5
The Bridge Kingdom (The Bridge Kingdom #1) by Danielle L. Jensen | 4.5 out of 5

I read two books in the last week. Woo hoo! My friend Holly recommended both of these books to me a while ago and Twisted Creek was a re-read for me. I enjoyed it but it was still a really slow read for me. The Bridge Kingdom, however, that book rocked my socks. I freaking loved it all. The suspense, the ill-fated romance, everything. So good!

What I Listened To

Dark and Wild by BTS
The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt.1

I’m still listening to all things BTS. I’m making my way through their albums from start to finish and I’m loving each and every single album. I’m so sad that I didn’t know about these guys until this year. I missed out on some great stuff. Thank goodness for Weverse, YouTube, and V-Live.

What Made Me Laugh

For those of you who are starting the new year with a new diet. Here are some dieting tips from Kim Seokjin and Kim Taehyung. 🙂

There you have it, my weekly recap. How was your week?
