Top 15 Played Songs of 2015

This is a quick summary of the top 10 songs I played in 2015. I have other plans for "2015 Review" type posts or videos, but they'll be coming soon/eventually. Note: not all the songs are from 2015- they just happened to be ones that I played.

1. Exo- El Dorado (2015)
I admit this is a guilty pleaser. The bridge, chorus, rap all blends together amazingly, a pleasant surprise since the original trailer in 2012. Bonus awesome dance that I eventually plan on covering.

How Not To: Cosplay

Happy Halloween! In the spirit of Halloween, I want to talk about- cosplaying. Cosplay (コスプレ kosupure), a portmanteau of the words costume play, is a hobby in which participants wear/make costumes to represent a specific fictional character.

I've been cosplaying off and on since 2008, mostly with friends or classmates. By no means am I a proficient cosplayer-- I have never done any photoshoots or professional modeling, and all masquerade skits I've been in are... admittedly crap. Therefore, I do have much more experience on how NOT to cosplay.

So a ton of social media people has been promoting NatureBox in the last year and as YouTube trash, I finally gave in and tried one of their promos. I ordered: dried mango, mini Belgian waffles, salted caramel pretzel pops, chocolate granola, and mocha almond bars.

Christmas Europe Trip 2012-2013: Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Poland

This is an old blog post I rediscovered about my disastrous trek through Eastern Europe in 2012-2013, that I can't believe it hasn't been published yet. I visited Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Poland and I felt it is now long overdue to finally compliment the random videos I shot on my vlog channel. It's a piece written entirely in the moment back when I was studying abroad:

3 Tips on How to Party Safely

Hello and welcome to summer vacation for most people! It's a time of traveling, sightseeing, and, of course, partying. Now, "partying/clubbing" and "safety", don't seem to go hand in hand. Especially considering how much media is put into the nasty sides of it- bar fights, sexual assault, etc. However, there IS a way to party... safely.

Resa Reacts - Hithchiker's "Eleven" MV

I'm not a fan of music video reaction videos because it's simply not offering much info, but I wanted to slap out something about Kpop after writing soooo many unpublished reviews (really, I have about 101 published posts here and 68 drafts in the background of Kpop MV reviews... probably never to be finished).
So here you go, my first reaction video! (And not planning on making more of these).

As I stated, in the video, here are my theories about WTF is going on in the MV (both SM's & Original version)
