Life is Good.

Wow! I have not put up a post or anything in a long time! And it sure feels good to be back, that’s for sure. School’s about to start meaning I’ll have a ton more time to waste (haha) just kidding. I really have to make this last year count! It’s all gone by so fast…Soon I will experience the last first day of school ever, and I will be sucked back into my studies. But I thought I’d just put up something, since it brings back all those memories of blogging late into the night, hiding in my closet of a room so that I wouldn’t have to deal with my awful roommates. But that’s another story!

Anyways, I’m just going to keep it brief here. I don’t really have anything on my mind at the moment. Hmm, looking back at the previous post I just want to thank everyone that helped me with my petition. I definitely reached my goal, but I couldn’t have done it without you! More than half of the signatures were from WP!

I’m at a standstill for posting anything stimulating at the moment, however, I would definitely like to get back in touch with you all! So definitely just stop by and say hey and I’ll get back to you! If you’ve never been to this blog feel free to say hey still! I love meeting new bloggers on wordpress, there are just so many talented writers! You have all encouraged me so much, more than I thought I was going to get when I first started, so I thought I would return the favor.

So if life is good, let me know why that is so. And if it’s not so great…still let me know. Like I said, I’d love to get back in touch! And I really don’t even know where to start…plus I can’t sleep.

Tagged!

I haven’t really had anything on my mind or anything of that sort lately, so being tagged by Trying To Know Thyself has really helped to keep my mind focused on something nonetheless. So lately I’ve been crippled with a severe case of writers block and as I sit here nothing will come to my mind. I just feel really burned out lately and reading back through some of the posts that I wrote in the past brings back that feeling of nostalgia.

 

Those memories where I was so busy from school, but after coming home late at night…instead of sleeping like a normal person would I would have a nice mug of hot chocolate and let loose those things that were on my mind. Those memories where it was cold and dark outside, the outside of my window blurred by the rain and thunder and surrounded by howling winds. The only way I could express myself being through words and getting to know more of so many people with shared interests. Not going to lie, the only reason that this wordpress account is still here is because of all of the interesting, amazing, and genuinely kind people that I have had the opportunity to meet.

It’s definitely sad, knowing that some people have deactivated their accounts and I may never talk to them again. Not only that but just thinking back to all of the people that I got to know at school personally in the last year. But hey, I guess that’s life. People come and go. You just have to be careful about how much of your heart you let them take. It was good while it lasted. But you just got to keep looking forward!

 

Alright so back to the tag!

The Rules

1. I must post the rules.

2. I must answer the questions the tagger listed for me

3. I must create (or reuse) 11 questions for those I tag.

4. I must tag 11 people.

5. I must let them know they’ve been tagged.

Alright, so for this time since I just recently tagged 11 people, I’ll be skipping rules 3-5. But if you want to answer these questions as well, feel free to! You can even just post the answers in the comments. But that’s only if you want to.

The Questions

1. What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory would have to be when I was growing up in Korea. My mom told me to get dressed for school. Now at the time I was going to a private school and we had uniforms that we had to wear. So I went and put on my purple sweats (because that was the uniform, I guess!) and we went to get some delicious snacks from the local market before we went to the bus stop. All I remember was crying my eyes out as she dropped me off on the bus to my first day of Pre-school.

2. Who is your favorite musician?

Hmm, I don’t think that I could narrow it down to just one musician. There are just too many people that I gain inspiration from. And that inspiration ranges a wide variety of genres. I always love to hear new things. Music to me is poetry in motion, it’s the bridge to the soul. I can tell you who aren’t my favorite musicians…the one’s that they play over and over on the radio these days. Sometimes it surprises me the crap they put on the radio.

3. What was the saddest moment in your life?

The saddest moment of my life was when I moved from my hometown, to go live in a totally new town. This happened when I was in 3rd grade. I was pretty set at the time, having made some really close friends (you know, the one’s you would get in trouble with ;) Turns out the move out couldn’t wait until the end of my 3rd grade year. My parents went with me to school one day and I got to say my final goodbyes. I never got to see any of those friends again. It’s ok though, that wasn’t the first time that I had to deal with moving. If there’s one thing that makes me sad, it’s that a lot of my friends now have had people that they knew since they were practically in diapers and they’re really close friends now. But I will never be able to relate to that. I always feel that I can never relate.

4. What was the happiest moment in your life?

The happiest moment in my life would have to be when my mom made it through her 8 hour surgery. She was diagnosed with a ‘large’ class tumor in her brain, and that although the chance of having a fatal surgery was slim, she could end up being paralyzed, or plagued with strokes the rest of her life after. Good news was, everything went perfectly. The doctor told us that strokes and paralysis are nothing to worry about since none of the nerves were damaged throughout the process. I honestly thought that my relatively short time with my mom would end right there, that life after would be different. But she is 100% now and that strength is what gives me the motivation to do the things that I am doing right now. Every time I feel like complaining, I just think about all of the things that she sacrificed for me to get here. I can’t let that go to waste.

5. Do you have any embarrassing moments?

I have one, er a few. But one that I will share with you. Now this wasn’t embarrassing on my part but I still felt just as awkward. So one day I came back home from school. And it was one of those wintery, gray, lifeless days. Cozy. Anyways, I came home and dropped my stuff off in my room. I had to go to the bathroom so I went. Now, usually when the lights in the bathroom are off and the door is semi-open, that’s a good signal that it’s empty. But was it?!? NO! It wasn’t. My roommate thought that it would be convenient to be taking a dump with the door wide open and the lights off, because he thought that I wouldn’t be home for another good bit. Anyways, I felt so awkward. The minute that light switch went on and that surprised expletive left my mouth. Our conversations after that one moment were never the same.

6. Did you go to college, if so what did you study?

Hmm, I am currently a college student. And although it’s just hectic trying to balance AFROTC stuff with school as well as heading community service projects, I am studying Sociology while working on a minor in History. It’s definitely a lot of reading that’s for sure. But it’s nothing though compared to programming. <–That is definitely commitment.

7. Who is your favorite literary character?

My favorite literary character would definitely have to be Jay Gatsby. He is a man that seems to have everything. But in reality he is just looking for one thing. The poor guy only wanted one thing. And he ended up dying living a life that was never fulfilled to its potential.

8. If you could have any book turned into a film (that wouldn’t suck) what book would it be?

I know that it’s already been done, but I would definitely have a movie of the book “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. Just think of a 2012 remake! Even though the original movie was pretty good. Jack Nicholson is just one creepy looking guy haha!

9. If you could switch lives with someone who would it be and why?

I would definitely want to switch lives with Bruce Lee. He was such a great role model for many people. Also I would want to know what kind of training he did daily and what motivated him to do the things that he did. And to be a student of my own philosophy. That would be pretty intense.

10. Do you enjoy ebooks or real books?

Definitely real books. There’s just something about the smell of a new book and the satisfaction of opening the crisp pages that only a real book can have. Plus it’s what I grew up with! I don’t know, it’s just a different experience reading a book from reading a screen. I just feel like it’s easier to be engulfed in the plot when you’re not staring at some screen for hours. Which is one reason why I really dislike when teachers assign readings from those e-textbooks. It’s just too hard to focus.

11. Have you ever seen/experienced any sort of paranormal activity before?

No I can’t say that I have, but I would love to go find a haunted house and do a little stakeout, Ghost Adventures style. I feel that you can’t really know unless you experience it for yourself. It would definitely be scary, and I probably would have second thoughts in the end. But exciting nonetheless.

5 More Days!

I can’t believe how quickly it’s coming up, but that is how many days until I leave for beautiful Alabama for Field Training! I’ve been nervous out of my mind! So much that I haven’t been able to sleep too well. I’ve had some pretty intense nightmares lately, but I’m probably just psyching myself out. Field Training is basically, well, a truncated form of basic training for Air Force ROTC cadets. It’s one of the big milestones that a cadet overcomes before becoming commissioned as soon as he/she graduates. One milestone that I never thought that I would reach, with it being fairly competitive as there are only a number of slots that each University can offer.

But I got that chance, the opportunity to do something big and just thinking about the impacts that it will have further down the road…it’s truly awesome what I’ll have the chance to be a part of! It’ll be awesome. But what really gets me is that I really don’t know what to expect. That’s the worst, not knowing what to expect. I’m ready…but I don’t know. I’ve never felt this nervous for anything before. I haven’t been able to sleep too well the last few days, as my nights have been riddled with so many different nightmares. Nightmares that all share one thing in common. About failing. Oh well, I can’t let that bring me down. I’ve already come too far. And everything turns out alright in the end. Now I just have to listen to my own advice eh?

But on the other hand, summer’s been great. The days just seem to drag by…which is exactly how I like it! I don’t want school to come around any faster than it needs to! Haha, I haven’t had anything school related to procrastinate on, hence why I’m not on here too often…although I just can’t imagine how many awesome crazy stories that I’ve been missing :( Oh well, I’ll definitely be back. Oh, one thing! What are some good songs to calm the nerves? Something to fall asleep to would work wonders :)

Anyways wish me luck! As I realize now that I’ll be down there in Alabama for both my birthday (my 21st of all of them! :O) and 4th of July!! Errgh. But what better way to spend the 4th with all my buddies down in Alabama on an AF base though haha. The first thing I’m going to do when I get back is buy the entire 6-7 seaons of The Office. I just love that show!! Alright well, I should really get to back as I’m sensing the incoherence of what I’m trying to say. So good night to you all! Or possibly morning…er evening. Sleep…why do you elude me?
