twenty-four. full-time student and worker. a shy polyglot. quiet bts trash. kmusic, anime, and foreign culture fanatic.
hello, everyone. i’m mochi (or yasu, depending on what aspect of life you know me from). i’m the lazy driving force behind baepsae and am the only one that can be blamed for the constant in consistencies in content and updating on this blog. currently, i’ve got my hands full with working full-time and full-time studying, so keeping up with this blog sometimes gets pushed to wayside for an overtime shift or an essay that’s due on sunday. despite that, i try to make sure that when i do post the length and quality is somewhat up to par to make it worth the time away. in the time that i’m not here, i can typically be found on @teacupclub_ where i co-run with the lovely abbey louisa rose to share your posts as “your favourite ghost uncle, mochi”. [ note: i am still trying to work out how to get the chats going again without messing up my schedule. i definitely have not forgotten. ] follow my main twitter, @keo___pi_, to see my collection of bts tweets, food retweets, and general updates about my life unrelated to blogging.
baepsae —
formerly mchiblogs* and other names. active since december of twenty-sixteen. no particular niche or category. sporadically updated. ran and maintained by ghost uncle mochi.
hello and welcome to baepsae. baepsae is a nicheless blog, ran by a consistently overworked twenty-something year old, and (accidentally) takes it’s name for a kpop song from one of said overworked twenty-something year old’s favourite group. although the blog was started back in december of twenty-ten, it has gone through several revamps and name changes before finally becoming and settling on baepsae. if you look hard enough, it is possible to find a large portion of the older iterations of the blog and see the differences / growth. as baepsae, the blog normally is focused on one particular genre and is no longer set on being just a review blog. this was done so that mochi feels more comfortable blogging and less restricted. currently, baepsae is under a bit of construction and rewriting; however, baepsae has no intention of completely closing down or being fully retired any time soon. if you like what you see here on the blog, consider buying mochi a coffee so that they can continue to somehow exist with the hectic schedule they have and blog at the same time.
an important note — as of recently, it has been decided that baepsae will rarely ever take requests for reviews or brand sponsorship unless the product or brand is something that is truly loved by the blogger and would reflect the attitude and personality of the blog. that said, in the off-chance that there is a case where baepsae does accept a product for review or a sponsorship, this tidbit is created to, as the title insinuates, allows for clear and open transparency. there may, on occasion, be an affiliate link or links in a post or a review for a product sent for the blog; however, these things will be disclosed immediately and multiple times within the post or somewhere on the blog. any content curated for and including aformentioned links and brands are not influenced by any one, thing, or entity outside of the blog’s owner. opinions, views, and how they are stated are that of the blog and the blogger’s and has no baring on the company or product unless stated otherwise. opinions and views are completely subjective, should not be taken as gospel, or used as the only source of “credible” information even if there are tinges of objective information provided. this blog nor its sponsors are liable for how you, the reader, absorb, handle, and accept the information provied to you nor are they liable if something were to happen in the event that you decide to follow the words and opinions found here. not everything works for everyone and, while recommendations are given, it is not anyone’s place to be a keeper of any sort for any person. currently, this section is a bit of a work in progress but if there are questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to send an email and you’ll get a response almost immediately.

hello! welcome to baepsae. baepsae is, admittedly, a blog that was named after a k-pop song and is a rebrand of a dying thing that didn’t yet deserve to die. the blog is maintained by mochi and has neither a particular focus or niche to this blog. you’ll typically find a bit of about music, books, anime, and the occasional rant, sharing of currents, and reviews.

25 before 25 | Six Months Later
May 21, 2018
i know it’s been a very, very long time since i’ve posted something of substance on the blog and i do plan on addressing that in one of the upcoming posts—it’s in the editing phase, so give me a little time, sorry—but i’m going to go ahead and ignore that for the time being to focus on something a little less heavy.

one of the last posts i made before my disappearance was a 25 before 25 post where i made a list of some of the major things in my life that i really wanted to acheive before i made it to my mid-twenties. my intention had been to actually update the list in march-ish of this year; however, due to things i’ll chat about in that post i mentioned, i ended up putting it on the back burner. that said, i felt like an update was needed now because my birthday is, roughly, a month away.

although i did make a good headway into the list, i’m still a bit disappointed that i didn’t get nearly as much done as i would have liked. there is still, like i said, a month left to get more things done, but i’m still disappointed in myself.

Current Rotations #02
January 4, 2018
it's been a while since i posted here and seriously, it wasn't my intention. i have this weird sense of timing were i always seem to come back to blogging just before or during a really important and stressful point of time in my life. in this case, it was me thinking that my finals week was closer than it was and being trapped in a 15+ page essay for roughly 2 or so weeks. not gonna lie, i got incredibly stressed towards the last week of class because i ended up having to rewrite half of it because it got lost in the process of transferring it from word to google. thankfully, i ended up writing over the 15 pages and hit the 20-page point. even more thankfully, i, somehow, managed to pass the class and i'm pretty chuffed about that overall.

i would have come back around the holiday time, but i get awful holiday depression and i knew combined with working and school, the depression was going to be relatively bad and had to keep my distance. now that my emotions and anxiety have kind of settled, along with my depression, i can get back to finishing all of the posts that i wanted to previously.

today's post is nothing extravagant. as you can tell, it's another current rotations post because i really wanted to share some of the music that got me through both my depressive episode and my final weeks of classes. i'm also planning a 2017 round-up post, but as we all know, i'm going to be late with that and purposely so. (let's be real, being late is my normalcy.) that said, i think i've done enough prattling for the lot of us, so i'll go ahead and jump into the post! ♥
