I grossly underestimated how much energy my new job would need going into the holidays.

And I’m still not going back to my regular schedule until next week 😅.

Hey y’all, long time no see. Happy 2024! I did not mean to be gone from the site for so long. But I just have not been feeling up to writing or really keeping up with new music. I’ve literally been listening to a bunch of WOODZ, TXT, and ENHYPEN the last few months. Any new music has really been from what I last talked about in my October faves article.

And a lot of like Pop music mixes Spotify has been recommending from songs I’ve already liked. I just haven’t been adventurous at all. As I’m typing this, I’m listening to my November music releases playlist. And &TEAM’s First Howling: NOW is hitting hard. I love when you get all the bangers on one album with a few new songs mixed in. At least, I think some of these songs are new.

I’ve been thinking for the last few weeks about how I was gonna handle my end of the year articles. I’m still going to do my fave songs of 2023, fave albums, and my wishlist for 2024.

But these will be scaled back. I was originally going to do a tier list video for my favorite albums, but I just don’t have the time to film and edit that extensive of a video at the moment. And I was gonna do another 50 fave songs because that was so much fun for 2022.

So I’m thinking a top 20 fave songs and a top 10 (maybe 20) fave albums article. These will be out sometime later this month.

My wishlist article will be more of a reaction to my 2023 wishes. 2024 will have like maybe one or two things on it. Honestly, I just want a Wonho world tour and a Chungha world tour. And a Yugyeom US tour, (don’t be shy, you can come back here 😉).

Okay, maybe my list is a bit longer than I thought it’d be. Regardless, for the near future I’m looking at posting one article a week, minimum*.

*This week will technically have 3 articles live, but I’ll explain that in a bit.

And I do still want to post my November faves article. My December faves drop in January now, so I’m really only behind a month. I haven’t even looked at what was supposed to drop last month, tbh.

That also means other than, like Soompi posting about comebacks and debuts like SHINee Minho and Hui from Pentagon, I don’t have a list made for January 2024 releases yet either.

It’ll be fine. I just gotta get started and stop procrastinating on this stuff. I’ll try to post more when I have time, but right now, I don’t want to promise more than an article a week until I feel comfortable enough to post more. And quality over quantity. After doing some thinking while I type, this is the schedule I’m thinking January will look like:

January 1-6: Update (this article), Kpop 2024 Wishlist, & November 2023 Best Comebacks & Debuts

January 7-13: December 2023 Best Comebacks & Debuts

January 14-20: Favorite Songs of 2023

January 21-27: Favorite Albums of 2023

January 28 – February 3: January 2024 Best Comebacks & Debuts

So…yeah, that’s where I’m at with things. I’m super excited about 2024 and all of its possibilities. I hope y’all had a good NYE. And I hope y’all have a good new year. Let me know if you made any resolutions/goals. One of my big ones is posting more on here, for sure. I miss it.

Have a great rest of your day and take care!

Ash💫
