Change is one of the most certain things in life, and that applies to a fangirl’s life as well. Fads whizz by you so fast that, before you can process it, a new one comes along. New artists/performers/celebrities arrive on the scene faster than you can say “who?”, and don’t be surprised if this personality you thought would be around in the limelight for a long time suddenly drops off into oblivion. That’s change. They come and go. It’s a huge bouquet of uncertainties.

I think it’s most fitting, since (a) that EP is the BOMB and (b) I am highly anticipating their follow-up, “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt. 2”, which will finally be dropped on November 30. That’s just a couple of days away! And also my belated way of saying belated Happy Birthday to a certain fish-loving space cadet who goes by the name of Ohno Satoshi.
