Hey there! Welcome to my humble abode in the great internets, the innocent lam. My name is Michelle Lam (clever pun, right?), and I am an Asian-American currently studying economics and mathematics as an undergraduate on the East Coast. It is a very trying time for me, so you will often see long stretches of time without updates. However, rest assured, whenever anything major happens in the SHINee fandom, it is sure that a post will follow.
With that nice segue, I should mention that I blog mostly about SHINee and kpop, focusing on reviewing their musical output and the ever-changing state of the kpop ‘business’. My bias within SHINee is Jonghyun. Other than SHINee, I have an on-and-off-again interest in TVXQ (post break-up). Once in a while, you may spot posts on lifestyle, political musings, book/manga reviews, piano rants, Kuroshitsuji hyperventilating, and lots of other things. I have a rather varied set of interests; a finger in every pie. Delicious!
Recently (January 2013), I have been reading a lot of manga, and am trying to categorize my thoughts on this, so I would expect an expansion on this topic in 2013. I usually like clean shoujo, seinen, comedic romances, slice of life; the stronger the female characters are, the more likely I will take a shine to it. This is my current reading list, and here is a list of manga I have started but decided to abandon. Have a recommendation? Drop me a line below or in formspring, thank you very much!
Please feel free to air your thoughts and opinions here. However, make sure you are clean and non-trolly. I can understand Mandarin, Cantonese, Italian, and English, so if any of those languages are more comfortable for you, please use them.
