Looking back, I'm thankful for our one week break, or "reading week" as us college students call it. Within the past 10 days, I made myself useful, helping a forum I work for get their theme graphics together. It's coming together quite nicely, and I know I'll feel so proud when it rolls out.
I also experienced my first soompi.com forum irc chat during this break. Met a lot of people I wouldn't have normally met in forum, so I'm very thankful for that. Had a lot of fun that night. So much, that I can't wait to join the next one ^^
Also, I discovered a new indie krock group called Yellow Monsters (옐로우 몬스터즈). Although I missed out a chance to see them perform live, along with G.NA and Brian Joo and many others, I'm glad that I was able to discover a new group that produces music that I enjoy listening to. I guess what I'm trying to say is that from something that once seemed hopeless, came something I could appreciate and love.
Finally, one of the most unique singers I've ever heard came out with her 8th album. Can you guess who? It was Park Ji Yoon (박지윤), known for her most popular song, In Faded Memory (바래진 기억에). With her 8th album in my music library, I can't stop listening to it ♡ Her voice is is just so calm and soothing, and the music inspires me to slow down and appreciate what I have, to be thankful for what I have andwhere I am. Though I only knew about her in the past year or so, I'm already so in love with the way she is able to convey so many emotions and feelings per song. One song feels like taking a walk in the park, while another feels like it's yet another sunny day, sipping coffee at a local coffee shop. It's amazing to feel these things, especially when I'm usually surrounded by pop love songs. It really puts things into perspective and I'm loving every moment of it.
At 6am tomorrow morning, the second half of my semester will begin. What will the next few months bring? Maybe I need a re-adjustment this year. To be more optimistic, and more humble. To appreciate what I have now. Who knows... after all, in the blink of an eye 2 months can pass just like that.
