Korean Dramas to End 2020 With A Bang –– Upcoming Kdramas December
I don’t know why, but this year for some reason, I am so much more excited about the year coming to an end. And since your girl isn’t able to travel to celebrate Christmas and New Years, we are going to watch korean dramas to end 2020 with a bang instead.
I mean hey, fluffy pjs, warm socks and a bingeing kdramas all week sounds like my kind of sloth activity.
Being a lazy bean aside, 2020 has been one hell of a year for a lot of people––your girl included––and I think we could all use some much needed break. This year has been going at the speed of lighting, despite most of us spending the year on and off of quarantine. There has been so many things happening that it’s hard to keep track of everything. Which is why I have been particularly excited for the year to end. While I know our problems in 2020 doesn’t miraculously just disappear because we got to 2021 in one piece, but the feeling of turning a new leaf by going in 2021 makes me hopeful about the future. As I am sure is the case with most people.
I don’t know what the future will bring, but I would just like to thank you for being here. I appreciate you, each and every single one.
