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

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.

Is Something Wrong With Me?

cb977da305fed93b54c71b72da56135a

February 5…and I still haven’t written any lyrics. I did write one in January, but I’m yet to edit it.

I really want to write, but I’m can’t. I’m not feeling sad, neither am I depressed or you know anything that’s not happy, or pleased with myself. I’m happy and I’m pleased with myself. But I can’t seem to get around writing a happy set of lyrics. I’ve written one before, I didn’t like it. Everyone else that saw it loved it, but I didn’t. It felt ‘not me’ and fake.

I can just listen to my sad songs playlist, they will definitely make me write something. And by sad songs I mean heart wrenching, deep songs that literally make you feel the pain and make you miss a lover you never had, or feel sad about a breakup you never had. I don’t want to do that because they’ll make me sad.

I really need to start writing happy things, if not Happy like Pharrell Williams, but a song that goes along that direction. A song that truly shows how I’m feeling now…the real me.

I should at least try again.

 

Fighting Depression

Yesterday night, my mood got blue and I was just down and sad. I remembered what I always tells people I counsel. “Fight that feeling and feel better. Use positive thoughts to counter the sad negative thoughts you’re having.”

At times even I don’t even take my own advise, but I thought, why not just take my own advise this time?

Guess what? It worked! Instead of my usual looking for sad heart wrenching songs, I looked for happy songs and I got up and started dancing. It’s been a long time since I danced and I had a good time in my room. After I finished and got ready for bed, I was just happy and my spirit was no longer down. I just felt so colourful and amazing. I’ll put down the songs I listened to down here:

1. Me Too by Meghan Trainor

2. No by Meghan Trainor

3. Better When I’m Dancin’ by Meghan Trainor

4. All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor

5. Happy by Pharrell Williams

6. Cheap Thrills by Sia

You can’t help but just start dancing when you listen to songs like that. The only way to fight against negative thoughts is positive thoughts. Try it, it’s worth it. Let lose!

If I Didn’t Know Better

heavensmirror

If I didn’t know better, I’d hang my hat right there
If I didn’t know better, I’d follow you up the stairs

Stop saying those sweet things
You know I’d like to hear
The horns are blowing louder
The bailiff’s drawing near

Why do I keep drinking
Wasting my time on you
If I didn’t know better
Well, dammit, I do

There’s a hole in what you’re saying
I can plainly see
You’ve a lover that’s waiting
But, baby, you’re right here with me

Ooh
You might as well be the devil
Keeping me out past three
Well, you’re the one with that apple
But, baby, you can’t blame me

Why don’t you keep drinking
Give me one night with you
If I didn’t know better
Well, dammit, I do

Oh baby i do
Baby, you’re right here with me
Sweet daddy, you know I do

Writers Block

girl_with_laptop

For some weeks now, I’ve been having writers block and I hate it so bad. I started a new lyrics piece called Letters To Myself, but I’ve been really down and restless and unmotivated with all the thoughts running faster than the speed of light through my mind and not being able to catch them, pin them down, really think about them and pen them down.

My thoughts seem so scattered right now, nothing really seems right. It’s like a messed up puzzle with no guide, or a broken glass jar with no way of really placing the pieces right back where they were before.

I’m listening to Against All Odds (Glee Version). Sad songs usually calm me down and speak to my soul. It’s either I don’t know what my soul’s saying or I just can’t really feel what my body’s feeling.

Right now, I’m feeling numb. I should study cause of exams coming up in few weeks, but I feel so unmotivated and it’s really messing me up…because even the songs I know…don’t say what I feel…I really get fed up with myself when I can’t explain how I feel inside or what exactly’s going on through my mind…
