Trying To Keep Up With Kpop + School + Minzy’s Solo Debut

So as you may or may I have not been putting up regular Blogs as I promised. I am really sorry. I just finished my exams today and boi….I have a good feeling about it 🙂

When I was back home I asked myself how do people with college lives even manage to keep up with New Kpop Videos that pop out like 24/7? I thought it was easy because back home I was able to keep up with them, and stream them for hours every single day.

But, it is not easy. I have not been able to keep up with the Kpop World at all. It is moving too fast for me and I feel like I’m sinking and everything is crazy!

I’m curently watching the new videos from Winner which is Really Really and Fool. I also saw clips of IU’s new video Palette, featuring GDragon.

I also watched Minzy’s new video Ninano, from debut extended play, ‘MINZY WORK 01 UNO’. I feel like all blackjacks have been waiting for this day to come.
Minzy: Ninano > https://youtu.be/nmZGpBIz_Gg

C2kMm0k I am so proud of her. Ninano showed off her Charm and she also used her Purple Microphone on live stages and also at her showcase. I was/am a proud Blackjack and also I’m really just so proud of Minzy. She didn’t go safe with her solo debut, but she went STRONG, FIERCE, AND SEXY!!!!

I didn’t even know the video was up. I was like oh let me see if Musicworks uploaded something about Minzy and BAM IT WAS UP AND I FREAKED OUT AND I COULDN’T STOP PLAYING IT. Then I watched the reaction videos and oh my they were amazing!

I’m so proud of you Minzy. You keep doing your thing!!!!

Puzzle Pieces

36bbed7f8dbbd6667c30d71506bea0ea

In that moment it clicks.
I know exactly what to do.
Our bodies fit together like puzzle pieces.

In that moment time stops,
For about an hour we are endless.
She looks up at me and smiles.

In that moment I melt.
Her hair is everywhere
There is sweat on her brow.

In that moment we don’t care.
We are each other .
We are happy.

Ailee: Vocal Queen

Hey guys. I’m really sorry I haven’t been updating my blog. Things have just gotten real busy and crazy. But I’m back today and I want to share with you a woman who’s voice sounds like heaven on earth. And it’s also powerful and gives you goosebumps and makes you cry.

Her name is Amy Lee, but she’s better known as Ailee (stage name). She’s an American singer based in South Korea. She is signed to YMC Entertainment in South Korea and Warner Music in Japan.

I stumbled on her song I Will Show You on Youtube while I was watching Korean Music Videos and I was blown away. Like how is someone so talented and with such a bold voice, and powerful too? Then I went ahead to watch her other music videos like Don’t Touch MeHeavenU and IInsaneMind Your Own BusinessIf YouHome (Feat. Yoonmirae), and so much more. She always has a way to tell a story through her music and I really lover her for that.

She recently came back with a new album titled New Empire. It’s mind blowing and she herself said that it is really her style.

Now I want to show you her live performances. Listen to them, your ears will thank you big time. Ailee is amazing, talented and beautiful.

She also covered I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. (Fun Fact: I Will Always Love You is actually originally by Dolly Parton)

And to finish this post off, Ailee performing If You.

Germany: Culture Shock?

img_6037

Happy Valentine’s Day.

It’s been a while since I posted my last blog post. But I’m back with another one and it’s about the things I’ve noticed for some weeks now here in Germany.

1. Everyone is nice. Even the older people.
During my last stay here in Germany, when I was still a kid, I don’t recall everyone being this nice and helpful. Some days ago I was trying to get somewhere and I ask this younger kid and he didn’t know which direction I should take. Then this old woman came to me and asked where I was going and she was so helpful like God bless her heart. Prior to that at the train station too I was so confused, didn’t know how to buy a ticket and these older people around came to me and helped me out. And they were all smiles and I was like wow where did all this niceness come from? They made my day.

2. Assuming that I’m a refugee (from Somalia).
I found this a bit funny. While I was going to get myself something to eat, this man approached me and asked if I was from Somalia, and I said no. Then he asked what I was doing in Germany, and I said for studies and he started speaking french to me. I was answering him in German, but he decided that I could speak french and spoke french alone to me. I really didn’t have the time to explain to him that I was not from Somalia so I spoke to him in french too. I speak a bit of french.

3. I can walk to anywhere.
I’m not used to the bus and tram routes, but I figured out that I could just walk where ever I wanted to go. Before I came here, I didn’t walk around because it was so easy using the car to go everywhere. Here it’s kind of different because everything is connected one way or the other and I just love the cold air on my face as I walk. It feels amazing.

4. The air + Cigarettes + Weed
This is something I really don’t like. It’s been a long time since I spelt the smoke of cigarettes. The smell makes me feel suffocated and dizzy. Whenever I go out, my nose and mouth is always covered with my shawl because I cannot bare to smell cigarettes. I literally have to take a small sniff to see if I smell anything weird, if I do, I walk as fast as I can, if I don’t then its whew and I walk at my normal pace which is like power walking XD.
At the Bahnhof (railway station) some high school students were helping me out when I was looking for a bus to take me somewhere. After they finished helping me, they OPENLY offered each other weed. Like I was shocked. Like what in the world? Mind you, I’m from somewhere where weed isn’t acceptable and considered BAD and I don’t see things like these. Sure some of my classmates smoked weed and did so many other crazy things so I know it happens among teens a lot, but I didn’t expect it to be so open. I was lost like isn’t anyone going to say anything?? That part really threw me off.

I love Germany and it feels really good to be back.

I’ll be posting more Germany Updates as time goes by. Once again, Happy Valentines Day

Moving To Germany

large

Hey guys. You might have noticed that I haven’t been posting regularly for some time now. It’s because I’ve been super busy with preparing for my move to Germany.

I’m excited, happy, and scared all at the same time. Sure I’ve lived there before, but this is the first time that I’m actually going on my own.

I’ll really miss my parents, my mum, my dad, and my little baby boo bro too.

My mum is an amazing woman She’s a one of a kind wife and a one of a kind mother. She’s always there for me, she loves me like a daughter and a friend and just wants the best for you.

My dad is the best father and husband that I’ve ever met in my life. I’m not sure I’ll ever meet a man like him. He’s kind, loving, caring, he’s everything a woman could want in a husband and everything a daughter could ever wish for in a father.

I’m really going to miss them. 😥

I’m planning on creating a Youtube channel to be able to share my experiences and keep myself busy when I’m not busy. And I’ll also keep my Instagram updated. I haven’t been doing much of that either. I’ll try

I’m grateful that I have you guys to talk to. It keeps me motivated to write and I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting as frequent as normal. I’ll try my best. I promise.

I’m going to get back to packing my things. I’m leaving tomorrow! So excited!

The Unwritten Girl Rule

you-1

I was reading an article some days ago about a girl who was pissed at her friend for falling in love and dating her ex and all I could say was ‘What in the world are you mad about? Why?’

Apparently it’s an unwritten rule that a girl must never date her friends’s ex. I really still don’t get it. I mean yeah it would be awkward to meet your ex again and see him kissing your best friend.

Maybe the reason I don’t understand this ‘rule’ is because most of my friends have been guys. So I took it upon myself to find out more about the Unwritten Girl Rules/Codes and wow I found…25 OF THEM (all thanks to the site hexjam). I had no idea some of these existed.

  1. Never date your friend’s ex.
  2. Never befriend your ex’s new girlfriend.
  3. No matter what, those new girlfriends always look like ogres compared to your friend
  4. Never reveal your friend’s secret.
  5. Always be honest.
  6. Never leave a drunk friend alone.
  7. Only post flattering pics of your friends on Facebook. (I find this one very funny.)
  8. Unflattering pics are ONLY allowed if you’re both striking an equally weird pose. (What in the world….I feel like an alien reading these rules.)
  9. Full access to each other’s closet is permitted. (Oh no! Not for me!)
  10. Half an hour pep talks before a date are mandatory. (Oh yeah. I had this one friend I gave a pep talk before she went on her date. It went pretty well. So proud! :))
  11. Always help a fellow woman out during her time of the month. (Thanks mom for all the dark chocolate. Love em!)
  12. Rescue plans will be implemented when friends are heartbroken. (Let’s say I’m always there for my friends who are heart broken. Well it’s mostly that time that they remember the Counselor Mitchi is alive. XD)
  13. Never stay quiet when your friend is falling for an asshole. (True talk!)

And the rest are pretty much more girl talk. I also searched up why the number one rule ‘Never date your friend’s ex’ is important. According to stylesweekly here are the reasons. And by friend we mean a really close friend who you spend time with and confide in (and they do the same with you) who has an ex-boyfriend who’d like to date you.

1. It’s Not Good For Your Friendship: If you and your friend are super close, then she probably told you about her relationship with the guy. Just think about how uncomfortable it will be for the both of you for her to know that not only are you aware of some of the innermost secrets of her relationship but now, you’re going to learn about some of those things firsthand. Yeah, awkward doesn’t even begin to cut it!

2. It Could Ultimately Cost You Your Friendship: If your friend does pretend that she’s cool with it at first (which is shocking all on its own), don’t be surprised if she’s not in the long run. She has every reason to think that you dating her ex is a bit on the side of disloyal. And when you don’t really trust someone, it’s hard to be friends with them

3. It’s Shady On Your Part (And His): Your friend is more than fair if she asks you how long you and her ex have entertained dating each other. And even if the topic didn’t come up before they ended their relationship, you certainly shouldn’t blame her for thinking that the two of you might have been sneaking around. And either way, thinking that being together is cool is pretty shady on both of your parts.

4. You’ll Never Be Able To Full Trust Him: What would make you think that if he is OK with seeing two friends that he won’t mind doing it again with one of your other friends? And really, can you trust that? Probably not.

5. He Might Have A Hidden Agenda: Revenge reveals itself in a sorts of ways. And sometimes, you don’t really see it coming. Be careful about a guy who wants to date you shortly after his relationship ends with your friend. You might be nothing more than a pawn to hurt her feelings or make her jealous.

6. Chances Are, You’ll Dislike Some Of The Same Things She Did: The reason why you and her are friends is because the two of you have some things in common, right? That’s probably why you like some of the same guys. Here’s what you probably weren’t prepared for, though. That’s also probably why you’ll end up disliking some of the same things about your friend’s ex as she did.

7. He May (Openly) Compare The Two Of You: It’s actually a given that he’s going to compare the two of you. That’s natural. What you might not be prepared for is him comparing you openly. “Sara would never wear that” or “Katie actually likes this restaurant, you don’t?” Who wants to feel like there’s constantly a measuring stick in their relationship. And not only that but someone who they actually know?

8. His Friends May Compare The Two Of You Too: Here’s an icky thought. Guys talk to their friends. This means that he talked to them about your friend (and who knows what was said) and now, you’re up for conversation. And yes, that also usually includes comparisons. Between you and your friend. This time, not only by one guy…but several.

9. It Could Be A Reputation Killer: Honestly, at the end of the day, character should trump reputation. But in this case, they both basically work together. Even if you feel that dating an ex of your friend is the exception and not the rule, what is it about your character that thinks it’s a good thing to do? And if you don’t care, that attitude is what could ultimately affect your reputation.

10. You’ll Have A Hard Time Balancing The Two Relationships: So, if you’re used to you and your friend telling each other everything and she can’t stand her ex and/or her ex can’t stand her either, how are you going to balance everything out? It sounds like a tug of war more than anything else. And what’s the fun/use/benefit in that?

11. It Will Be Hard To Get Others’ Support And Understanding: Hopefully, you have people in your life who are going to love you no matter what. But if a lot of them are like “We just don’t get this so we’re not sure we can offer the best advice”, don’t fault them for it. It’s complicated at best.

12. There’s A Slim Chance It Will Get Anywhere…Far: When a guy knows that you’re willing to date your friend’s ex, it might cause him to wonder if you’re also capable of dating one of this friends up the road. That puts your integrity into question which may put an expiration date on your relationship before it even really gets off of the ground.

13. They Might Ultimately End Up Back Together: Gee. Now wouldn’t this be a boomerang? How mad can you really be if after dating you, he goes back to the woman he was seeing before you? There’s a chance of this happening. Do you really wanna risk it?

14. There Are Plenty Of Other Guys To Choose From: Aren’t there enough guys in the world that dating the ex of a friend is worth avoiding? Just asking.

15. You’re So Much Better Than That: While there are rare instances where dating the friend of an ex could work, it’s close to the chances of winning the lottery. Between trying to get your friend to trust you, trying to keep the relationship from being super awkward and trying to keep any type of guilt at bay, you’re better than all of this. Don’t look at a close friend’s ex as “the ultimate catch”, but the ultimate distraction when it comes to finding someone who you—and your friend—can be happy about you being with instead.

Okay these points are doing a pretty good job of convincing me that dating your friend’s ex is a huge NO NO. But then what happens when it’s actually true love and you guys are soul-mates? Yes I believe in soul-mates. Maybe there’s an exception for that.

I would really love to hear what you reader think about it. Is it a good idea to date your friend’s ex or is it just a big NO NO for you?

Love Letter

boy-girl-hug-love-favim-com-434353

The paper crumpled as my fingers clenched into a fist and then I throw away the paper ball. He always find a way to cover up his lies beneath sweet words. And every time I promise myself that I won’t fall for those letters of his, but I do. So this time I’ve thrown it away without reading it. But I again think that maybe this time he might not have lied. So I pick up the paper and uncrumple it. He has written two words- ‘Turn around.’ So I do, and find him standing a few inches away from me, but he wasn’t here even a second ago. “What are you?” I ask him.

“I’m sorry,” he says and his eyes turn glossy with tears. This is something I’ve seen before, so I hope that this time he is not lying. So I let him wrap his arms around me and use my shoulder to cry on.
