“You’ve got the music in you, Don’t let go; You’ve got the music in you, One dance left; This world is gonna pull through, Don’t give up.” Whenever I reflect upon the blessings I continue to receive, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. I know I’m embarrassingly gushing, but thus far time and again things work out … More “If you feel your dream is dying (hold tight).”
If you didn’t catch on my undertones or through my personal entries, I’ve honestly been on a real emotional slump due to lots of reality check. The biggest clincher was of course, having been accepted to graduate school at Stanford …only to find that that’s in reality, only half the battle: funding is the real … More So something crazy just happened…
I would like to first clarify this: this seemingly steady release of entries – this isn’t a common feat. I know, I know, it seems like I’m totally contradicting myself too, saying I’m so busy …then new entry, one after another, keeps showing up. I love this statement, because it totally applies: bad news makes … More Yay, Panda! Get Onboard the Love Shuffle: A Review.
I am twenty-two and I have… never been in love. In fact, in all honesty – apart from the guy I’d briefly met and was sort of interested in last summer, I can’t remember the last time I’d ever actually really like someone. You know, in that heart-thumping whatever ways? Which is really pretty funny … More perhaps, love.

It’s no surprise then, that I’ve about 30 … More Timeout: Top #10 Pick for Epic Kdrama Bromance!
Six episodes in and ladies and gents, we have right here… CRACK. I don’t know what to call this entry, so I’m just going to settle for this being a second impression of Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love. I’ve been reading plenty about the ratings-race and the sometimes-petty complaints being directed towards this show. I … More Second Impression: In Defense of Jang Ok-jung, Live In Love.
I’d watched a show couple nights ago (a review is forthcoming once I’m done with this show, that’s for sure…) that showcased the difficulties of job hunting and it made me wonder if I ought to get on that wagon stat in case Stanford doesn’t take place? Sometimes acceptance creeps silently, but with such reckoning … More brick walls.
#5 One of the world clocks on your phone/iPad/computer is not home-home, but SEOUL time …so that you’ll know exactly when new episodes are supposed to be released, ha! +++ #4 You start doing crazy mental countdowns awaiting release of new episodes. [N: When is Jang Ok-jung, Live in Love‘s episode 6 gonna be released … More Timeout: You Know You’re Deep Into The Rabid Hole When…
This feels like being seventeen again – almost. The scholarship rat-race is ugly, merciless and unsympathetic; I know it all too well. If you want something so genuinely bad, you’ve to desire, eat, live, breathe and most importantly: shove that pride aside unless you’ve been given the final kicker that it ain’t happening. Ah Shell, … More the fighter.
“If, in spite of intense supplication, there is a delay in the timing of the Gift [al-‘ata], let that not be the cause for your despairing. For He has guaranteed you a response in what He chooses for you, not in what you choose for yourself, and at the time He desires, not the time … More anxiety.
