Men + Suits = ATTRACTIVE

There is just something about men who wear suits!!

Maybe because they exude this businessman-charm?

Is there such a term? HAHA.

Anyway..

It is like when they wear suits, their appeal instantly boosts up.

Personally, I think Koreans and Americans are the perfect example for this.

Let me show you some pictures as proof.

Almost 11 and a half hour ago, I said I was going to clean my room..

Yes I did.

Aside from the 30-minute bath I just came from now, I just finished cleaning.

It was like an 11-hour workout for me!

Cleaning my room was like hitting two birds with one stone.

I cleaned and at the same time I worked out.

Truthfully, my back is really sore as well as my legs because of too much movement but it feels great.

The feeling is so fresh and clean and it just makes you want to be on the bed until tomorrow night.

It feels great to finally accomplish such a task before school starts because I know I might not have the luxury of time to do this again.

As a reward, I shall search for the series I watch every Sunday which is We Got Married Global Version starring Taecyeon of 2PM with Gui-Gui, a taiwanese actress (if I’m not mistaken) and Hongki of FT Island with Fuji Mina, a Japanese actress.

Ciao!

Given that my school observes a trimestral system, we only have short breaks.

Each year, the longest break we have is that of summer.

The summer break differs each year but this year mine started from April 17 because my final exams ended early.

And yes that means I’m currently on summer vacation..

Or am I really?

Aside from the perks of not having to wake up at any specific time of the day, or sleeping around 6-8 hours before the time you should be prepping for school, I don’t feel that I really am on summer vacation.

What plans do I have for summer?

Watching korean dramas and foreign films for my bucketlist, getting in shape (which is a sure fail this time) and…

Nothing else.

Seriously, NONE.

I do go out but my schedule is so irregular that I cannot plan for other days in advance.

Since I bought round trip tickets for September, I almost have no money left which makes it harder for me to make plans.

Lee Min Ho oppa’s album too will be out soon which means less $$$ for me.

I know it might sound a bit weird to want this but I really hope school will start soon!

I need my daily allowance!! =))

Luckily though, the next semester starts earlier than usual – May 27.

I am not sure whether to rejoice because I will have my daily allowance or not to because of the obvious reason… 대학교.

대학교 / hakgyo means big school or university; 학교 = school.

대학교 = school works + most of your time + stress + professors (may be an advantage or not) + deadlines + hardwork + etcetcetc.

For the upcoming semester, I hope everything goes smoothly.

Joining an organization and being active in it are on my plans as well.

잘자요 여러분!

As of now, I really can’t explain what I’m feeling.
I’m neither happy nor sad.
Hence the title.
And as for why, I shall explain.

I am happy because..

Today we had a healthy family late lunch/early dinner.
My sister who studied culinary arts and I were in charge of our food.
Even though it was tiring, it was worth it.
Family day for us is special because it doesn’t happen often because my eldest sister has her own house now and because everyone is busy.

Our return trip flight is confirmed already.
Finally, I have a return ticket booked!
Though it is more than triple in price compared to my outgoing ticket, it was a good deal.
I am so excited for our trip!!

I am sad because..

My laptop won’t open.
It has been two days since it last opened.
Once in a blue moon, the same thing happens but it takes less than a day to one day maximum for it to open.
Yes, my sister and I have a spare small laptop in our room but the bigger one is so much more comfortable to use especially when blogging.
(I don’t have moolah to buy one because of ze plane tickets! Someone please send me a laptop. Huhuhu.)
Also, I have queued posts there!
+ pictures for my upcoming food blogs
+ my trip plans (all the things I have researched – for MONTHS –  related to travel)
+ my music files
+ personal files I haven’t sorted nor posted
+ so much more 😦

Thankfully, WordPress has an app for Android devices so I am able to post one now.
But I must admit, it is difficult to upload pictures here and fix posts..

Nevertheless, I am sorry cause I will not be able to post food blogs for the time being.
For now I might be posting more personal stuff and journal-like entries.

What I am now?
양다리 / yang da ri means sitting on a fence or straddling.
It is usually used when you are torn between two things.

That is it for now!

Even though I haven’t travelled much, I know in my heart that I love travelling.

Just the idea of it makes me jump for joy and it makes my heart skip a beat.

Yes, I am in love with travelling, adventures and everything in between.

Why I love it?

I am not really sure but I just know it.

I have read this article last year and just now, I came across it again.

It inspired me before and now that I’ve read it again, it made me proud of myself.

Yesterday, I booked an unplanned flight to an international destination.

Yes, I only have enough money for airfare as of now and I am still a student but I will of course save up for my travel and not just ask for allowance from my parents.

A lot of people save first and then book a flight after.

I am not sure what has gotten into me yesterday that I just wanted to book it right there and then without even checking out other airlines!

Luckily, what I got was a promo flight.

Anyway, I hope you read this article by Jeff Goins – an amazing writer – and I hope that you’ll be inspired by his piece of art just like me.

And so here it is… 🙂

3 Reasons to Travel While You’re Young by Jeff Goins

 TwitterFacebookGoogle+

The other night, I had a conversation with a young woman who had a number of decisions ahead of her, one of which was whether she should go to grad school or travel the world.I told her to travel. Hands down. No excuses. Just go.She sighed.

Travel While You're Young

“Yeah, but…”

Never were more fatal words spoken:

  • Yeah, but… what about debt?
  • Yeah, but… what about my job?
  • Yeah, but… what about my boyfriend (or dog or car or whatever)?

“Yeah, but…” is pernicious. Because it makes it sound like we have the best of intentions when really we are just too scared to do what we should. It allows us to be cowards, while sounding noble.

Most people I know who waited to travel the world never did. Conversely, plenty of people who waited for grad school or a steady job and traveled still did those things — eventually. Be careful of the yeah-but. The yeah-but will kill your dreams.

I was so stirred by this conversation that I shared it with a group of 30 young adults last night, many who were asking these very same questions.

The life you’ve always wanted

When you get older, life seems to just sort of happen to you. Your youth is a time of total empowerment. You get to do what you want.

But as you mature and gain new responsibilities, you have to be very intentional about making sure you don’t lose sight of what’s important.

So if you still have a reasonable amount of control over your circumstances, you should do what really matters. Because life won’t always be just about you.

During early adulthood, your worldview is still being formed. It’s important to steward this time — to give yourself opportunities to grow. A good way to do that is to travel.

So, young person, travel. Travel wide and far. Travel boldly. Travel with full abandon.

You will regret few risks you take when it comes to this. I promise you that. There are three reasons to travel while you’re young:

1. Traveling teaches you to live an adventure

When you look back on your life, you will have moments of which you are proud and maybe a few you regret. It’s likely that the following won’t be on the latter list:

  • Bicycled across the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Appeared on Italian TV.
  • Hiked a Mayan ruin.
  • Learned Spanish in three months.
  • Toured Europe by train.

They’re not on mine (fun fact: I’ve done all of the above). So what, then, will be? What choices will you regret making? Holding back. Being afraid. Making excuses. Not taking more risks. Waiting.

While you’re young, you should travel. You should take the time to see the world and taste the fullness of life. It’s worth whatever investment or money or sacrifice of time that may be required on your part.

This is not about being a tourist. It’s about experiencing true risk and adventure so you don’t have to live in fear for the rest of your life.

2. Traveling helps you encounter compassion

In your youth, you will make choices that will define you. The disciplines you begin now will be with you for the rest of your life.

Traveling will change you like little else can. It will put you in places that will force you to care for issues that are bigger than you.

If you go to southeast Asia, you may encounter the slave trade. If eastern Europe, you may see the effects of genocide and religious persecution. If Haiti, you’ll witness the the ugly side Western paternalism.

Your heart will break.

You will begin to understand that the world is both a big and small place. You will have a new-found respect for the pain and suffering that over half of the world takes for granted on a daily basis.

And you will feel more connected to your fellow human beings in a deep and lasting way. You will learn to care.

3. Traveling allows you to get some culture

While you’re still young, you should get cultured. Get to know the world and the magnificent people that fill it. There’s nothing quite like walking alongside the Colosseum or seeing Michelangelo’s David in person.

I can describe the city of San Juan and its amazing beaches and historic sites to you, but you really have to see it for yourself to experience it. You can read all the books in the world about the Great Wall of China or The Louvre, but being there is a different story.

The world is a stunning place, full of outstanding works of art. See it. Do this while you’re still young. Do not squander the time. You will never have it again.

You have a crucial opportunity to invest in the next season of your life now. Whatever you sow, you will eventually reap. Please. For your sake, do this. Because you won’t always be young. And life won’t always be just about you.

So travel. Experience the world for all it’s worth. Become a person of culture, adventure, and compassion.

“What if I’m not young?”

Travel, anyway. It may not be easy to do, but find a way to get out of your comfort zone. It’s really never too late.

But if you haven’t gotten sucked into the routine of life yet, I implore you — travel. It will never be easier than it is right now for you to do that which really matters.

***************************************************************************************************************

So what are you waiting for?

Explore and travel the world!

Live like there is no tomorrow.

As Saint Augustine once said..

 ”The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.”

Will start reading again!

Do you like reading too?

근양 or keunyang means just / simply / just because.. hence the title. ^o^
******************************************************************************
These past few days has been a wild ride for me.
From school works till family matters.
Everything honestly seems to be going out of hand.
I honestly have perfected the art of being passive..or so I thought.
It is just that lately a lot of extreme things are happening around me that I can’t seem to have a control of anything which frustrates me.
Not that I have a problem with not being in control of everything but……..it is just like that.
******************************************************************************
I must admit that before, I used to be overly sensitive – –  when I was much much younger.
TRUST ME. My relatives tell me this a lot.
My relatives from my mother’s side loves teasing each other.
It is their unique way of expressing I care for you so I’m spending my time with you even if I’m teasing you.
They believe in “ang maasar, talo” which means you lose if you get frustrated or annoyed and the like. (I can’t seem to find the right word)
Before, I easily get annoyed, angry, I cry and I even throw tantrums.
As I grew up, my tolerance for these things grew and made me “a more mature individual” (I think. ^^)
I don’t get easily angry or annoyed when small bad things happen. Sometimes even big ones.
I learned to adjust well to my surroundings and to the circumstances presented to me.
I’m not sure whether my recent frustration is due to my over thinking mind, my usual OC self or just because the people around me are just taking advantage of everything that they can.
I have been passive of the small and average bad things that people around me are doing but they just keep on stepping on the line and just recently, they have crossed it!
They went over the acceptable boundaries!
For the cold treatment I am giving them now, I can give no other excuse to them but 근양.
Yes, I am younger than them but age doesn’t dictate what level of respect a person has to give to you.
Not because I am younger means I am the person who should understand more and let their actions just pass.

Okay. Enough of the rant. Just had to let it out.

I must admit that it has been a long time since I’ve been in a romantic relationship.

Sometimes I can’t help but miss that feeling of being taken care of and being treated specially..

Being the home-person that I am means not spending much time with my friends which basically means that I get to be alone a lot.

Yes, the right time and person will come and sweep me off of my feet but I wonder when will that right moment be.

For the sudden emotion, I blame it on the movies that I watch which almost always have a perfect relationship or at least a good ending. Hahaha 🙂

Kidding aside, I probably should sleep now cause I still have classes tomorrow.

잘자요 / Good night!
