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.

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.

baepsae.
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.
November 29, 2017
as the year quickly draws to a close and people grow more and more excited about the holidays, i find myself more excited about next year and the fact that it's the year i’ll finally be in my mid-twenties. i know how weird it may seem to people to hear that i’m incredibly chuffed to be getting older but twenty-five has always seemed like a golden age to me. for someone who has been battling major depression, other mental illnesses, and having attempted suicide a few times, seeing twenty-five is such a weirdly amazing thing.

while my twenty-fifth birthday is going to be absolutely true to my nature and i have no intentions of spending time celebrating or having a fancy outing, i still wanted to celebrate in my own way. admittedly, i’ve always found that those “____ before ____” type of posts/lists are incredibly interesting and have always wanted to do one. since twenty-five is such an important year for me, i thought it would be pretty amazing to do one of these. it’s absolutely not a requirement that you read this, but i just thought it would be fun to do and a great way to motivate myself to push forward.

when the time comes, i'll definitely revisit this list and see what i managed to get done and talk about the process that when behind getting it done, if i didn’t do it already on here. anyway, enough blabbering and onto the list.
