I just read an article on Seoulbeats and I’d like to share it. An extremely well-written piece.

“….I mean, netizens (which I think is only a term Koreans use) have driven celebrities to commit suicide. SUICIDE! It really goes above and beyond a social phenomena, it’s like a cult. The entire system is just bizarre and unhealthy. Why are Koreans (more so than other countries) so fixated on celebrities? Why do celebrities have so much influence? I think this is an important issue for not just people in Korea, but for lovers of k-pop culture. Being a fan is great, being obsessive/stalkerish about people you will probably never meet, is not. Let’s not forget what is most important to us and what affects us in our day-to-day lives. There are still taxes to be paid, laws to be passed, and denture adhesive to be scraped off the ground. Who should we be more critical of and hold to a higher standard?”

I either get no sleep at all, or I sleep too much. I need some balance.

I can’t believe I watched soccer with Dad the whole night since 7pm today and am still watching now (it’s 12:50am). I thought I would get bored after 10mins. But I guess when you keep on eating and talking (sorry Dad, didn’t mean to disrupt you from watching the games) a lot, you realise that soccer matches are really “happening”.
I missed like 80% of the Wolves vs Man City match because it sort of bored me a little, so I went off to sleep for like an hour. I woke up later for supper and for the Liverpool and West B match playing now. :D

LIVERPOOL!

Hope can set you free.

People have said “it takes a genius to live a simple life” and that sums up exactly what I came to realise few days back. I’m just too good at creating problems for myself.
Tracing back to the root of the problem, I always find myself to be the one to be blamed. Not a good feeling at all- it feels absolutely guilty to see that others had to carry the burden just because they are seemingly the ones at fault. Things are never black and white and people see what they chose to see. I am responsible for a lot of people’s unhappiness in a lot of ways. And they feel bad for me when they shouldn’t.

I guess I was feeling a little shitty recently but the thing is, I’ve got to move on and not let it become an open wound that would continuously give me hell. I need to let it heal fast. I’m glad I’m “in the process”.

Anyway, I just want to  listen more and talk less. Be there for those who need me especially. People sometimes will never know your intentions unless you can take the initiative to allow them to see your intentions.

Show a little care, you might save someone from suicide. That has now become my catchphrase since god knows when… I shouldn’t use that too often though. It is kind of… extreme, in my opinion.

Yj, if you are reading this, I am happy to see that you could get something out of mine as well as everyone else’s encouragements. Just trying to do the best I can for you. Please please please meet me soon. We are supposed to have a meal together… right? Just give me a call when you are free!

It’s 4:39AM now and I supposed to be asleep because I’ve got really important stuff  (okay, I lied. Not ultra important that sort… BUT still  relatively important) to do on Monday. Let’s just hope I can be alert and ready to conquer the world and stuff.

I’m currently halfway into Season 2 of Lie to Me which stars Tim Roth who was super duper amazing in that awesome show. Aaaaaa, I can’t wait to finish it!

From Kim’s 19th birthday!

Hahaha, the “credit card” people.

Everyone! Yes, it is a picture of pictures.

I’m totally glad that I have now gotten back into blogging. Gosh, I missed blogging.
Truthfully. :(

Even when I am really mentally worn out, I won’t forget to look forward.

Perhaps that is all I can do now. I am not afraid of anything, really. Things happen , they become part of your life, and you just got to accept it while changing how you are going to perceive it.

I might be wasting my time away. But at least I will be happier in so many ways. Instead, if I were to be in a rush once again, I would then really be wasting my life away. Totally not worth it at all. I don’t have the energy care about what people might say. Who are these people anyway if they were to even say anything? They will soon get tired of me as a topic and then go ahead and talk about others. So why should I bother? Don’t have to waste my time at all.

There are  already so many good people in my life who are my friends. And my family acts as my compass and pillar, basically just anything I needed it to turn into.

I thank all the people around me who have supported me in one way or another. It got me to realise that people who look good on the outside, can be horribly messed up on the inside. So always show enough concern to everyone around you. It is not like they are putting an act to appear alright, but rather it is a way for them to get up, move forward and not look back ever again. Supporting them could just be as easy as treating them normal and not judging them.
I would never know what every single one of my friends have been through and I can’t speak for them to tell them what to do and what not to do.  As long as they can feel comforted even a teeny bit because of me, I guess I’ve done my part.

By the way, the weather this morning is soooo good! :)

When you assess a situation based on only the known facts, you are being logical. And when you assess a situation based on reason, you incorporate the known facts with assumptions that at least seem to fit or be reasonable.

Try to survive by logic alone you will fail.
