Welcome back to another monthly curation of my popular and unpopular stories on Medium. Along with a reading list, I also like to share a reflection on everything that happened in February. If you would like to follow this series, please follow me at (Jen Eve!)
I can’t believe February has come to an end. Is it just me or did February feel extremely long? For a month that’s only 28 days, it felt way longer than it had to be.
Even though the month moved like a turtle, I have to say I’m impressed with how productive I was…
In 2005, SM Entertainment debuted an 11-member boy group called Super Junior. Little did anyone know that this boy group was going to be popular and successful.
Then in 2007, SM Entertainment debuted SNSD, a 9-member girl group that swept the K-pop industry by storm. Like Super Junior, they became one of the legendary groups in K-pop.
In 2012, SM Entertainment debuted a 12-member boy group called EXO. As you can probably guess, they are very successful like their label mates.
In 2015, JYP Entertainment took a leap of faith and created a 9-member girl group called TWICE.
TikTok is the best thing on the market since Instagram. It’s fun, unique, and it’s thriving as a social media.
If you haven’t been on TikTok yet then you need to check it out.
It has a creator for every audience. It’s useful in many ways. Honestly, I learned some of my best lessons from TikTok.
Specifically, I learned the best tips and tricks on how I can enhance my outfits without trying too hard.
For many years, I’ve been interested in the fashion industry. However, my sense of fashion is anything but cool.
I’ve tried every piece of advice…
“I am not young and naïve.”
I fought back
As I stuck my tongue out to you
You laughed as you bent down
And kissed me on the cheek
I touch the side of my face
and suddenly I felt weak
My heart spoke louder than my words today
I closed my eyes
like I was going to pray.
That was until
I heard you say
“I love you…”
All my feelings rushed out like a flooding gate.
My jaw dropped while my heart beats fast
like someone was hitting 5,000 drums.
My lips were trembling
Like a rush of…
I’m sure we’ve all met the new kid on the block.
You know, the person who’s finding their place in the city and mingling with strangers. That one person who we recognize by we haven’t put a name to their face yet.
Yeah, I’m talking about that person.
I’m sure most of us have been the new kid at some point in our life. Specifically, a time in our life after high school called college?
As new kids, we tend to make mistakes, say the wrong things, and feel out of place. …
Michele Taddei and Renzo Zengiaro founded Bottega Veneta in 1966 in Vicenza, Italy. Taddei and Zengiaro left control of the brand in the 1970s. So, the “control” of Bottega Veneta was given to Taddei’s ex-wife, Laura Moltedo.
According to Brandy at Budget Fashionista, Bottega was originally known for its quality leather goods like luggage, handbags, wallets, and braiding techniques. Unlike other luxury brands, Bottega has subtle and “not-so-flashy” patterns that they use for their products (2020).
By the 1980s, Bottega gained its first recognition by famous artists and celebrities like Andy Warhol. According to Rebag, in the 90s, there was…
If you’ve been a K-pop fan for a long time, then you’ll know that it’s vastly different compared to the western music market.
The main difference between the two industries is the training period.
Every K-pop idol has been through a training period where they sharpen (or learn) how to dance and sing.
In most cases, a lot of idols will learn how to speak a second language, act, model, and learn other useful skills that can further expand their (potential) career.
These trainees train for many years so they can pursue a career in the entertainment industry. …
The classic and simple drink
You pick it up, you don’t think
Like a close friend who’s in sync with your wavelength
They know all about you
They know all of your strengths
A “healthy” alternative
Some people know of it.
Like a friend who keeps to themselves
Hiding between the shelves
A trendy alternative that made headlines
Everybody knows them
Some people like it
Some people don’t
Like the popular friend who has all the time in the world
They have fun until the end of time.
To them, there is…
I’m going back to my roots, everybody!
If you’ve followed me on Medium since day one then you’ll know that I’ve written a handful of song reviews.
So, I want to go back to those days and share my thoughts on a catchy song called “In Your Eyes” by The Weeknd
If you know anything about me then you’ll know that I’ve been a loyal fan of The Weeknd since I was a senior in high school.
I’m close to my mid-20s and I’ve graduated college. …
Dear High School,
Thank you for teaching me that life isn’t what it always seems.
You may have your best friends one day and lose them all the next day.
You may be soaring up in the sky like a plane and drop with no warning at any time of day.
You made me realize that nothing lasts forever and that’s okay.
I wasn’t meant to stay in one spot anyway.
Dear High School,
Thank you for opening my eyes to how the world works.
They say high school is an “easy” version of the world.
There are so many…
