Me in 2019

Well I can confidently say that this year was an improvement by leaps and bounds. Much of the turmoil that had surrounded my life in 2018 has subsided and I have been sailing on relatively calm waters this year.

On a personal level the biggest change for me was downsizing and moving from a house to a condo. In one way it was great to get rid of a bunch of junk and really figure out what I wanted to take with me. On the other hand, it’s hard to get new stuff and find room for it. But such is life.

Site wise it has been mostly business as usual. My review count was up this year was up a bit more thanks to my shifting priorities from J-Pop to K-Pop. I never thought I would go back to being an active K-Pop fan but with IZ*ONE I got pulled back in. It was nice (and sometimes frustrating) to get back into the thick of things again.

KCON was probably just the beginning of getting back into the K-Pop fandom as I’m sure I will find other shows to attend in 2020.

To close this year’s recap out I would like to again thank the Staff of Selective Hearing. I appreciate all your hard work; effort and your sacrifice of time make the contributions that you do. Thank you very much for everything.

And to our dear reader(s). You know, the 4 or 5 of you who actually are not bots. Thank you for sticking with us for so long. We hope to continue to serve whatever needs you are looking to feed at the time.

By the time this is published I will again be in Japan for Wrestle Kingdom 14, New Year Premium Party 2020 and probably some other stuff. As always, have a safe new year celebration and see you in 2020.
