Long time no blog haha! Hope everyone has been well! Glad to be writing after a while. Has been quite busy and also due to not completely finishing one drama. My passion for dramas seems to be reignited in me again. Good to have this feel! Sometimes, when I am feeling troubled in my life or when I use dramas as a way to escape from reality, the thirst for dramas just isn’t that much and it doesn’t really make me feel fulfilled when watching.
