Hi, I'm Junwon!

This site is mostly just a way for me to brain dump a bunch of things, but in case anyone was curious, I thought this was a good way for others to learn a little more about me.

Feel free to connect with me at any of the below!


This section is meant to be a way for me to keep track of what I've read, but feel free to look and see what books I enjoyed! And if you have any reccs, let me know!

The sections that are labelled with a year contain the books I read for that year, and then the sections where there's a title are some quotes/thoughts I may have had while reading the book. None of the writing here was edited, so please don't judge typos, grammar, or any other stupid things I may have written there =)

Not too sure what topics I'll write about yet, but please keep checking in every once in a while to see if there's anything new!

A perhaps overeager first post

Hello friends!

I'm still not too sure what I'll post about plus posts will most likely be very infrequent, but I was hoping to start writing more so I figured I may as well start somewhere. It's probably a bit too early for me to know what wil lend up in the writing section, so feel free to check in once in a while to see if there's anything new!
