I am not a perfect person. I can make mistakes anytime.
But still, I love those people who stay with me after knowing the real personality behind me.

Thank you for accepting me for who I am.

& I love it when someone becomes a part of your daily routine.
It’s nice to talk to someone who wants to talk to you just as much, without anything feeling forced.

There is way more in life than just being buried in books, & yesterday night proved that point so aptly ๐Ÿ™‚ Therapeutic at its best indeed. But okaaaay as an undergraduate, I should still prioritize my studies so … off to mug again! 3 more papers, 4 more days. Can’t wait for post-finals x

#25thHappyDWday

22 November 2014 marks the special day where my ultimate bias in Kpop turns 24 (international age)!

Happy Birthday to INFINITE’s angelย Jang Dong Woo ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I never knew someone could actually be so optimistic about life, always seeing the good in people, always being so caring towards everyone around ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the happiness that you’ve brought to the lives of all Inspirits ๐Ÿ™‚ & for all the times you tweet so deeply yet incoherently, so characteristic of you indeed!

The moment when you’re about to give up, is generally a moment right before a miracle happens.

Thanks for such wise words, & thanks for being such an awesome source of motivation that makes my heart go on a rollercoaster ride (in a good way) so often ๐Ÿ™‚ & most importantly, thank you for being the reason why I became an Inspirit 2 years ago, because being in this fandom is one of the best things that has ever happened to me, for it has gifted me with friendships that are meant to last a lifetime ๐Ÿ™‚

Definitely my eternal bias no matter what, #25thHappyDWday ๐Ÿ™‚

Rewind

Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey.

And … thank you for making me realize the importance of this ๐Ÿ™‚

Wings

tumblr_n3cu7jtv2n1svb9fpo1_400

Lights go down
In the moment we’re lost & found
I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Damn these walls
In the moment we’re ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We’d remember tonight
For the rest of our lives

It’s approaching 4ย in the morning and I’m not even close to being done with my lastย assignment for the semester, before I embark on the arduous mugging journey for the remaining days leading up to finals. Hoping for an increase in productivity & completion of this assignment before it’s due at 6pm on Sunday.

The last official day of lessons for the semester is officially over ๐Ÿ™‚ Not too pleasantly it had to end with cog psych test, but I guess it went well. Hoping for a decent score & placing on the bell curve, but then again luck has never been on my side. Anywaaaay, this semester has been a really … interesting/fruitful one? There were many changes/new introductions in my life, and I’m still trying to cope with everything that’s going on. Many thoughts about this semester, both academically & non-academically, will definitely blog about the first semester as a year 2 undergraduate soon!

Back to the assignment, till the next time x

No Better Than Strangers

So drained these days, but holding on because of the people around me. Everyone’s really stressed out over upcoming finals & what-nots, and it’s kind of ironic because as much as people say grades do not define us, it does matter, as an undergraduate. Thank you to all the welfare from ’em friends, such gestures really serve as a motivation boost to continue hanging in there. Can’t wait for finals to be over, it’s just 16 days more yaaaay. Hoping for the best for everyone, may we all achieve ideal results in the upcoming finals ๐Ÿ™‚

Congratulations to Lovelyz for finally being able to debut :’) It has been a long wait for Woollim girls indeed, may their debut be worthwhile, although they are off to a rocky start (evidently). For those unsure of what I’m talking about, click here to read this really, really detailed & long update about what’s going on (cr: koreanboo). With member Jisoo being embroiled in this controversy/rumour, it really diminishes the worth of all other scandals in the industry in 2014. Despite reading various varied views & perspectives on this matter, it’s a fact that we will never know the absolute truth. That’s the thing about humans, being trained to deceit so skillfully it’s becoming so … scary. Really hoping that all the accusations against Jisoo aren’t true, but if it is, may legal action be taken towards her, for all the wrong-doings & crimes that she has committed in the past. Should the accusations towards her be true, I can’t imagine the amount of stress & hurt felt by the alleged victims … landing themselves into depression, performing acts of suicide, all because of one girl. It’s so scary to think that anyone is even capable of such acts in the first place, and she’s of the same age as me.

One thing that struck me particularly was something that the alleged victims said in their latest updates:

Society doesn’t look upon us with favor, so we don’t have much power.
The louder we speak the bigger the stone that is thrown at us.

Don’t you think it’s rather saddening how these supposed “minorities” are looked down upon & heavily stigmatized in society? Why can’t people just be accepting for what all these individuals are. Society is so ugly, letting certain traits of people be defining them so carelessly. What people need to realize, is really to see the bigger picture, and view them as human beings. Step out of your little bubble of your so-called perfect world, and see that despite the flaws in the world, the differences that people might have, you aren’t the prototype of ideal – nobody is. Perhaps stepping back & viewing the world as it is, will allow you to feel more humble & not be so judgmental of everything that you perceive to be correct. Because it’s difficult to be objective, but it’s much needed.

To be honest, my stand on this matter keeps swaying sides with each new piece of information popping out, and I wouldn’t exactly say that I’m definite she’s guilty or whatsoever. It has been really interesting discussing this matter with quite a few friends, but honestly everything is just so ambiguous & confusing now. This matter is really spiraling to become such a huuuuge scale & involving/hurting so many people in the process. May the truth come to light soon, and the real culprit(s) get what she/they deserve(s), and end the sufferings for the true victim(s).

Alright it’s time to hit the books again, till the next time x

Do It Alone

“I didn’t need the safety net because I was okay. And, you will be okay too. I promise.”
There’s a difference between being alone & lonely, although society loosely categorize them to be of the same kind. Being alone at times is really therapeutic, and as I grow older, I’m starting to genuinely appreciate all the me-time that I can get. Just chilling alone, sorting out my thoughts & what-not ๐Ÿ™‚
This article was definitely worth the read!

Thought Catalog

I have a confession to make: I talk big but I struggle to do things on my own. I encourage people all the time to go ahead and do what they want, regardless of whether or not they have someone to go with them and yet, here I am, on a Friday night, struggling to live up to the promise I made for myself two days ago.

The promise was simple โ€” go out to dinner alone. Alone, as in sans friend, acquaintance, date (haha, like I ever have a date anyway!) โ€” alone, as in, solo, just me. I would be my own date. Fortunately, I get along with myself but the thought of actually going out alone creates a swirl of anxiety that I struggle with every time I contemplate it.

I recently moved 900 miles away from home and left behind my friendsโ€ฆ
