Is It Winter Yet? –– September 2020 Upcoming Korean Drama to Watch

 

Okay but seriously, is it winter yet? Because not even all of these new and upcoming Korean drama in September could cool me down in this summer heat and humidity.

Other than the heat, what have you guys been up to in as of late? Me? I have just been doing my deed as a good citizen by staying in, masking up and rolling into a cinnamon roll and watch movies and tv shows back to back.

Quite surprisingly, after some time living your life semi-quarantined, you started to get used to it. It’s amazing when you really look at it, how adaptable the human minds are. A month or two ago, I was at my very lowest because there seems to be no end in sight to this COVID life––there still isn’t––but lately, I have gotten better coping with it and keeping myself from losing my mind and going absolutely bonkers.

Part of it is by making new friends (online, of course), and I also took up some classes to keep my brain active and fit, I started picking up some non-fiction books to challenge myself, some artsy hobby on the side like crocheting and then watch some movies and tv shows in my down time. I must say, it’s not perfect. But I am making do with what I have and what I can given the circumstances. I hope you are as well. Do not let the situation get you down, try to work with what you currently have and go from there. One step at a time, guys and gals. We can do this!
