So it’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve posted and even though that’s not actually a long time, I felt like I should post something about the things I’ve been working on and where I’ve been. The last day of school was the 20th, and since then I’ve been pretty busy.
My English class has been continuing on its journey through the novel, A Tale of Two Cities. Last week, girls swooned over the romantic and pitiful Sydney Carton, who has a tough outer shell, but a soft spot for a girl on the inside. However, I can’t help to feel for his loss. It’s one of the things many people sympathize with, losing the love of your life.
I’ll be starting a new series that’s actually a little depressing. For some reason these past two weeks, I have been a high amount of stories of loss and thought I should share my own insight about it. I have already began it with a Music Monday on my K-pop blog, but I thought corresponding this week’s Music Monday would also be a good idea, so I decided to go with “How to Save a Life” by The Fray.
Howdy Y’all. So for some reason, the past week or two has been full of loss. It seemed to be a topic of conversation occurring in many different forms wherever I went. I found it quite interesting and it got me thinking quite a bit. Due to the odd number of experiences I’ve had in the past two weeks, this will probably be an ongoing thing having multiple posts. Don’t worry, I myself haven’t experienced a loss recently.
So let’s start this off with a Music Monday coming from Nell. Nell is somewhat of a K-rock band consisting of 4 members and under the same label as Infinite, Woollim. The song I want to talk about is “The Day Before.” Although there are a lot of music videos that pertain to the topic of losing someone, I just found “The Day Before” to be so beautifully shot.

How can you think outside the box when your box is still closed?
The title of this post is just a fancy way of saying that you’re not going to learn if you’re close minded. I found that it’s become a pet peeve of mind when I run into close minded people. Although I do find myself to be a hypocrite. The truth is, it’s difficult to become open to all ideas. I don’t find myself trying out something new all the time. I want to stick to the status quo and what I’m used to. But one of the key things to living a fulfilling life is experience. You have no idea what you’re missing out on.
Why hello! I am in an incredibly good mood because it is finally December. My personal favorite half of the year Fall and Winter but December has to be hands down my favorite month. I can’t help but be in a great mood when I think about Christmas decorations being hung up, holiday specials on TV, and cute little Santa hats floating around. According to Vampire Weekend, December also brings Horchata.
