One month ago around this time, I was sitting down complaining about how there were no interesting dramas on anymore. I think I was watching around 2 shows with a few “meh” fillers.

So what is one to do when drama watching becomes overwhelming……….or the opposite, when there is nothing on worth watching? Join me as I give some tips to keeping a steady drama schedule and how to deal with the feast and famine cycle of a kaddict. Continue reading

Every now and then I like to glance away from my TV screen and rejoin the real world. Usually by reading a book in a coffee shop surrounded by the smell of coffee and a nice cup of peppermint tea sitting in front of me. What? I am not going to do something crazy like go to a party or anything. That kind of thing is exhausting. But despite my stepping away from on-screen drama, the drama often follows me into my reading choices.
