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.

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!!!!

Keep listening to kpop, because it feels good!

Till next time!

Shape of You by Ed Sheeran

I went to a club some days ago and I heard this song that got me pumping and feeling really good. I later found out that it was Shape of you By Ed Sheeran. It’s from his album
➗” ( DIVIDE).  I was really shocked because I’m wasn’t a fan of his music at all but Shape of You made me want to listen to more songs from him. And I also listened to his other songs and I can finally see why people love him and his music so much. It’s so heartfelt and emotional and true. I really didn’t get the whole hype about Ed Sheeran, but listening to Shape of You showed me what the hype was all about. And his songs are totally worth the hype. I’ll be listening to the whole album this weekend. That’s my idea of fun 🙂

I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body
And last night you were in my room
And now my bedsheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I

Dating My Best Friend?

large

I’ve noticed that whenever I’m with friends and we’re talking about friendship, and I tell them that my best friend is a guy, they always try to convince me or try and ‘make’ me realise that I’m in love with my best friend all because of the logic that says girls cannot be friends with the opposite sex without one of them or both of them having feelings for each other.

And totally understand their point too because before I became best friends with my bestie, whenever I’d see a guy and a girl together, the first thing that would pop into my mind is that they’re dating, or they kind of like each other. But ever since we became best friends, I realised that it’s possible to be friends with a the opposite sex and not have any romantic feelings for them. I even talked to him about this whole people thinking I’m dating my best friend issue, that I was having a hard time convincing people that I am not dating him and he surprisingly told me that he was also having a hard time convincing people too.

Here are a few reasons people think girls and guys CANNOT be Just FRIENDS (thanks to thoughtcatalog.com).

1. Sometimes in close friendships, caring gets confused for feelings.
When you are best friends with someone of the opposite gender (assuming you are heterosexual), any action you take to show your friend how much you care can be passed off as a secret sign of showing affection on a deeper level.

2. You always have to dodge the “Are you dating?” question.
You want to go out to eat together and people assume you’re a couple. Doing things alone, just the two of you, isn’t weird for either of you, but to your onlookers, you appear to be an exclusive couple. Answering that question sometimes is followed with a “Why not?” which leads to further explanation of the dynamic of your confusing friendship.

3. You never really know what they’re feeling.
Is he secretly in love with you, despite denying the possibility? Are you secretly in love with him, even though you think you only see him as more of a sibling? Should you be secretly in love with him? Would it make everything fall into place—or would it destroy everything?

4. You find yourself getting jealous.
If your friend starts dating someone or spends more time with a new potential significant other, you might feel as though things are falling apart. You’re not necessarily jealous because you want to date him; you’re just jealous because you’re no longer the only girl in his life. You might also be jealous because you want what he has.

5. Your relationship is held to a different standard than other friendships.
Because of that unusual dynamic between the two of you, you expect certain things to happen and/or not happen. When these expectations aren’t met, they hurt worse than any of your other friendships.

6. Sometimes you end up being let down.
You hold your friend to a higher standard because the relationship is—on some levels—more intimate, even though it is just a friendship. Anything that may go wrong hurts twice as much because you feel as though you’ve lost more than any other normal friendship.

I find some of these a bit absurd because unless you have feelings for him, you wouldn’t be getting jealous that he’s dating someone or he’s spending time with a potential spouse. If you are crushing on him and falling for him, tell him because it’s really no use keeping it to yourself and going through a roller coaster of emotions. I’m not saying that a girl and guy that are friends cannot be in love.What I’m saying is that It’s a 50:30:20 ratio of how things might be. 50% might be in love, 30% might be having one-sided love feelings, and the remaining 20% is just friends.

My best friend is an amazing guy and the girl that’s going to date him/get married to him is going to be the luckiest girl on earth because he’s simply amazing, down to earth, positive, you name it. He listens to me when I’m being whining, when I’m happy, when I’m having trouble with my girl friends and he’s basically like family. And he’s funny and goofy ad I could write a whole book about the type of person he is.

Do you think a girl and guy can be friends and not have romantic feelings for each other? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Germany: Culture Shock?

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

Types of People I Met While Travelling

plane-talking

Okay so I encountered different types of people. There was the pervy_nice guy, the ‘german’ advise giving guy, the loud kids and also the smarties_eating couples.

1. Pervy_Nice Guy: We met on my first plane here’s what out conversation was like.
Him: You can take of your shoes.
Me: Oh yeah thanks.
Him: You can take off everything else too.
*In my head I’m like what the hell…?*
Me: Hm no no and no.
Him: Come on, it can be two of us.
*I’m wondering why the heck I was even replying him*
Me: No no and no.
Him *pointing to my skirt*: I like your skirt.
Me: Thanks.
The we talked a bit more. I didn’t ask his name and he didn’t ask mine either. He was fun to talk to. He then helped me get to my next terminal for my following flight.
Him: You’re really beautiful, I was going to Germany, then I could see you.
Me: Thanks.
It’s really hard for me to accept compliments about how I look. I don’t really consider myself as pretty or beautiful. Only my family calls me beautiful, and it feels nice. But when an outsider compliments me, I don’t really know exactly how to feel except uncomfortable. Oh and he was kinda cute too… XD

2. The German Advise Giving Guy: While I was waiting for my next flight I took out a pack of gum and put one in my mouth. The man opposite me asked for one and I gave it to him. He then struck a conversation with me.
Him: Where are you going?
Me: Frankfurt.
Him: Oh me too.
Me: Nice.
Him: So what are you going to do there?
Me: To study.
Him: What do you want to study?
Me: I’m still thinking about it.
*Which is true, I was currently thinking about my studies. I don’t like giving people I don’t know infos about me just like that.*
The he starts giving me advise and telling me about his life and I just kept saying nice, wow, good. Because I suck at small talk. I even had to google how to small_talk… 🙂

3. Smarties_eating Couple: Beside me while waiting for the next plane there was this really adorable couple and they were sharing smarties. It made me miss my parents even more. My parents are always so lovey dovey. They’re the reason I believe that true love exists. And I pray for a love like theirs. I’m currently single and I am not into dating anymore, but when I do get to the whole love thing again, I want a love like theirs. It’s pure and beautiful. Every time he talks about her, there’s this glow in his face and his eyes shine like the stars. And I’m always thinking, Wow, I want that too.

4. The Loud Kids: So on my second flight, 3 kids sat behind me and the kept making noise (which was fine because they’re kids) then they started farting and the smell was coming to me and I was trying to sleep. It was horrible but I survived!

I had fun. Yeah there were times that I wished that I wasn’t on my own, but oh well. I’m a big girl now.

Things You Should Never Do Before Travelling

girl-looking-out-of-window

Okay so before I travelled I did some things that I wasn’t supposed to do the day before I travelled.

1. When your eye is itchy do not itch it unless you want it looking like someone punched you in the face: My eyes were itching so bad and I kept itching it. In the morning I had a red-eye and went out looking like I had gotten into a boxing ring and got my ass handed to me the night before.

2. Do not were tight clothing no matter how nice it looks. You’ll wish for baggies at some point: My top was tight, my skirt was tight my sweater was tight. I thought it looked really nice which it did, but it was so uncomfortable. 😦

3. Do not ask the server for things you do not know even if she offers them. Play safe and pick the things you know: Okay so on the plane the server was like ‘Ravioli or Chicken’. And I was like Ravioli,´. She gave that to me and boi it did not taste nice to me at all. So I couldn’t eat it and I was hungry. Thank God for the cake and bread cause I really didn’t know what else to do and I was too lazy to stand up and take my bag that was overhead. Cookies were in there.

4. Know how to open the toilet door from inside: So I didn’t know how to open the toilet door and I couldn’t get out. I got scared because I thought no one would hear me. I banged on the door as hard I could until someone came to open for me. I was so embarrassed.

I have more posts coming up about my flight. There’s so much to write about. And it’s snowing. I love snow.

Happy Sunday!
