Day 42

imageFirst night without mom. It’s always good to have some time off from people once in awhile. The distance help you cherish the closeness when it is available.

Just finish watching “Transcendence” starring Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, & Paul Bettany. I bet there is some awesome paper that analyzes this movie and I would love to read them. I would also like to write it but lack the writing skill to do so. So, I will make a simple list with words that can have a quick description of the thoughts I was having while watching this movie.

  1. technology; it can save and it can kill.
  2. how is humanity using technology? for the greater good? how are they using it now? are they abusing it? or are they still lacking in this? can we use it to “save” the world?
  3. what does it mean to “save” the world.
  4. are we trying to be our own god? are we trying to be other people’s god?
  5. how are we advancing? or are we simply moving backwards? are we striving or dying?
  6. morally right…or not?
  7. greater good? :T

To get rid of all this deeep thinking, I am watching running man 🙂

Day 41: Jealousy.

What do you do when Satan throws a curveball?  How do you react? The way you react is what differentiates you as a Christian from a non-Christian. The way you react is how others differentiate from an ordinary “good”person to a Christian…

Day 40: Breathe.

 

Lee Hi – Breathe

Lyrics:

Breathe in deeply
Until both sides of your chest
Get numb
Exhale more
Until they start to hurt a little
Until you feel like
There’s nothing left inside of you

It’s okay if your breath gets short
No one is blaming you
You can make mistakes from time to time
Everyone else does too
If I tell you “it’s alright”
I know that they’re only words
When someone sighs
How can I understand
Such deep breaths
Your sigh
Even though I won’t be able to understand its depth, that’s okay
I will embrace you

It’s okay if your breath gets short
No one is blaming you
You can make mistakes from time to time
Everyone else does too
If I tell you “it’s alright”
I know that they’re only words
When someone sighs
How can I understand
Such deep breath
Your sigh
Even though I won’t be able to understand its depth, that’s okay
I will embrace you

Even though your sigh may seem cheerless to others
I know that
Your day was so difficult that it was hard for you to let out even a small sigh
Don’t think about anything else
Breathe in deeply and exhale just as you are
When someone sighs
How can I understand
Such deep breaths
Your sigh
Even though I won’t be able to understand its depth, that’s okay
I will embrace you
Thank you so much for your hard work

Long time no type. My life have been good so far but there are still days where I feel so tired. This new song from Lee Hi just really touched my heart.

I am loving the lyrics even though they are so so so simple…

I would love to high-light and bold everything…if i really had to pinpoint one section, it would be this:
Your day was so difficult that it was hard for you to let out even a small sigh
Don’t think about anything else
Breathe in deeply and exhale just as you are

When i am feeling down from work or feeling so distant from who I want to be, having someone to tell me to just keep breathing just as I am is very comforting…what am I even saying? I use to have a saying that helped me push through the day. that was: just breathe. When the day gets so hard that even breathing hurts…getting a reminder/encouragement to breathe..helps me. I can’t say for others..but for me, it helps. I need a psychologist to look through my blog lol. Or perhaps I need to simply turn to God. 🙂

Anyways, thank you Lee Hi for this song. Thank you High Ground for bringing Lee Hi out of the YG dungeon…who knew how long she would have take to release anything. KUMM SAA AH MEE DAAA!

Day 38: Healer

OKAY. well, I just started and finish healer within this week. I must say..why didn’t i watch this drama sooner?! I can’t believe I almost missed this drama because of my biased opinions.

First, I started City Hunter..and I just could not finish it..the acting was so-so and the characters were just really a turn off for me. I understand that most female are seen as “fragile” beings that needs to be protected in the korean drama world however,,,there is a limit to it. So..yes, park min young nearly made me miss such an amazing drama.

Next, to be honest, I didn’t recognize Ji Chang Wook. At first glance of the promotional poster..i thought he was Jae Joong from JYJ. It isn’t that I”m not a fan of Jae, but at that time, I couldn’t feel a pull from who i thought was Jae and PMY

So while I was at a family’s dinner this thanksgiving, I saw my relatives watching EMPRESS KI. A historical drama that JCW is in but has way too many episodes to watch at the current school term…so I watched healer! and..man was I hooked.

Instead of writing an entire summary, I’ll just for my own sake, write why this is quickly on one of my favourite drama. I am an avid korean drama viewer. Since 2003, so I got quite a few years under my belt not trying to be too cocky here hahahaaa. jkjk, this is not something I should be proud of haha ^^”’

  • the characters are smart.
    There has been way too many time where I just cannot stand the stupidity of some characters. Our female lead, she is quick and it doesn’t take her too long to figure things out on her OWN! I am just so proud that a character like that exist. Perhaps it is also her role as a reporter..but she questions and seek answers. I think that really is inspiring for viewers too!
  • characters quickly clear misunderstandings
    They talk about their doubts that they have for each other. Our leads are so willing to love each other that they actually listen to each other. After listening to them, they are given the decision whether they would want to trust each other or not. To continue with this, the trust they have for each other is quite undeniable. Their strength of their feelings towards each other is portrayed really well. For example, the scene where JCW seeks to find evidence that his father was accused of murdering her biological father, PMYs’ love towards JCW is quite evidential as she reassures him that he is not a bad person and that she wants him to stay with her whether he finds proof or not.
  • every character feels so human.
    This includes protagonist side or antagonist side. I understand why the bad guys do the bad things they do…even though it doesn’t justify anything..but I feel a sense of pity towards them. Maybe because I am human as well? Each character has their backstory and I am glad to have met them, good and bad guys 🙂
  • whoever is in charge of sound and music are amazing.
    The song selections are amazing. At the moment, I am listening to Eternal Love by Michael Learns to Rock. Just one of the many great songs from the drama. Not only music, but the timing of silence was also well done. They didn’t needlessly place music to fill in gaps but they also managed to make silence a track itself. I think it was when JCW was holding the murder weapon and PMY witness him and the amount of shock was maximized with the silence placed. Clever move.
  • The love. Okay, ya. I don’t think I need to say much. They make hugs look so amazing that I may have the hugging syndrome for a few days now…oops.
  • Their was no love triangle between the main leads! I am so so so happy that it worked out successful. It just makes me value the main relationship so much more. There was no evil second lead, no second male lead syndrome..though i must say that Yoo Ji Tae is a fine man indeed. I love how he is their sam choon and his great encouragement towards their love. Another thing I love is how drawn they were towards each other right from their start..and also..their wasn’t that much doubt in their love. I am very very grateful for that.
  • Flashbacks. Though they repeated a few several times, I felt that they were not overdone and I felt that it had a perfect placement on it. I might even say, this drama would lose a third of its touch without the flashback so I am very satisfied.
  • ONE thing I must say that is a slight turn off..is that the ending!! I wanted to see more ever after part..sort of like..was it oh my ghostess?? I dont remember, but ya, I really do dislike it when they end it off too quickly..and I guess one more thing to add, I would want to minus 10% of the political parts..but i guess they still have to have some background story.

OKAY! I just really felt the need to write a post about this as the emotions are still pretty much in its “raw form”. Glad I did and I might even think about re-watching this. This is definitely precious to me.

This character really speaks to me as person. Healer. I want to have characteristics of his..to have a big heart. I really do.

anyways, I should sign off now. too-da-loo~
