Life Lessons

Dear Donnalynn Civello, So I have just started reading your book “Life Lessons; Everything you ever wished you had learned in Kindergarten”. Well, truth be told I have just finished reading the Introduction section so technically I haven’t really started the book yet. At the end of the introduction you wrote that we should stay [...]

The Success of Others

Katie Kim leaves YG Entertainment

Katie Kim has probably got one of the most insane voice that has ever appeared on Kpop Star which is probably why she won season 4 back in 2015 and moved on to sign with YG Entertainment. I was probably a little bit late in discovering who she was which was weird considering I had [...]
