Happy new year everyone, I hope you’re having a great start!
While I’m relaxing at home, I’m taking some time as usual to share my memories and feelings about my 2022, which overall was a good year. Not amazing, but not even bad.
The best part was the moving to my new house: it was extremely tiring, but having my own place feels like I finally accomplished something important as an adult; it comes with huge responsabilities, but I’m proud of myself for reaching this milestone.
Work wise, I had a lot of depressing moments when I was almost going to quit, but I decided to keep up and eventually the situation improved a bit; I can’t predict what’s going to happen in the future, but for now I’ll just go with the flow and see what happens.
I had a lot of plans for this blog at the start of January, but somehow I ended up losing my motivation and going on hiatus; I basically disappeared from social media for months.
That was completely unexpected to me too, it wasn’t planned, but at some point I felt like it was the best option: all the feelings I piled up for a couple years exploded in my mind and gave me no other choice.
At the same time, I started listening to kpop as I used to 10 years ago and I fell in love with new groups, so my interest shifted from otome games to kpop quickly.
Don’t get me wrong: I didn’t stop playing games because of kpop.
I was dragging the new releases already, I wasn’t very interested and I didn’t feel motivated while blogging anymore, so I naturally searched for something different that could light a sparkle of life in me; it happened to be kpop, so I just followed my heart and went with it.
I don’t know how long my otoge hiatus will last, nor my interest in kpop, but I’ll still try to keep my blog alive, until there’s at least one person who enjoys reading my opinions.
This is the 1st time since like 2019 that I don’t have a blog schedule or at least a mid-time plan, which makes me feel a bit weird and worried (I’m obsessed with planning, my MBTI is INTJ), but at the same time relieved: I want to change my attitude, being more spontaneous and less robotic.
Will this be a success or a failure, both for my life and this blog? Time will tell.
I hope some of you will come here from time to time and enjoy the ride with me.
See you soon!

Happy New Year 🙂
What a treat, new posts on Otomeland! I hope you enjoy the spontaneity of making up your schedule as you go! It may not work for everyone, but you’ll have to admit, it is quite fun.
I hope this blog is less stressful ultimately, since this is purely just your hobby, and I love and enjoy your posts, but I always respect any decisions you make about it. And you’re right, the newer game releases are rather disappointing. My newly bought Switch Lite is crying 🙁 I hope there’s a revival in the fandom soon… Amazon JP pls.
May your wishes (and mine) all come true this year 🙂
I’m trying to read opinions about new releases when I have the chance, to find out if I’m missing great otome, but seems like the new games weren’t that great lately. I’ll find out when my mood comes back!
Although I have no schedule, I know what my next post will be about: it’s written in my mind already, it will see the light in a few days (or a couple weeks, depending on my free time!).
Thank you and happy New Year! ^^
