"When you get tired, think back to days like this when you regretted it. Think of the days you treasure. Receive strength from it and live on." -Shin Jihyun(49 DAYS)
"At this moment, there are 6 billion, 4 hundred, 71 million, 8 hundred, 18 thousand, 6 hundred, 71 people in the world. Some are running scared.. some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day.. others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men at war with good, and some are good.. struggling with evil. 6 billion people in the world, 6 billion souls -- and sometimes.. all you need is 1." -Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer "We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love."
"Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."
- Ida Scott Taylor Peyton: That's what he writes. But what he says is a totally different story.
Haley: Sometimes people write the things that they can't say.
"Tree Hill is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it's a lot like your world, maybe it's nothing like it. But if you look closer, you might see someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find their place. Someone trying to find their self. Sometimes it seems like you are the only one in the world who's struggling, who's frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. But that feeling's a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes. Someone to help us hear the music in the world, to remind us that it won't always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you."
— Lucas Eugene Scott
IN HEAVEN BY JYJ "Don't leave, don't leave.
My name is Sherlene. A girl who loves 동방신기 (DongBangShinKi) so much since 2005 but never met them even once. Even though they had been close to me a few times...One day, I will. ;) Music is my soul.Take it away from me, takes away my life too. One biggest weakness, once truly and faithfully in love, there's no more "I'll find someone better." Love is the only way that could lead her to become a complete idiot.
Very catchy song, and interesting rhythm. Love it.
I'm actually blogging for the sake of DongBangShinKi. It's their 6th anniversary. And congratulations to Cassiopeians for successfully achieve #tvxq as the trending topic in Twitter TWICE. ;) Good work people. Hope oppa(s) get to read about it and gain strength from our support.
Oh, TVXQ fan group on Baidu, purchased an advertisement that was printed on Gyunghyang, a daily Korean newspaper on December 26, TVXQ's sixth anniversary. On the advertisement, the members of Baidu BAR left a message to SM Entertainment expressing their full support for TVXQ and request for SME to stop its alleged harassment of the five members:
You are trying to cut the dreams that [TVXQ] has been creating for the past six years, and are hurting the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people who felt joy because of them.
Stop your actions that are hurting the five members. Let them sing freely without any constraints.
The storm will wither soon. We will protect them forever so that they are not harmed. We will forever wait.
We are always standing by TVXQ - China's TVXQ Baidu BAR -
It might look like the fans are not being "loud" about what's happening to TVXQ. For now. I can't imagine if things turn badly, how the 800,000 fans and MORE will react. Always keep the faith Cassiopeians. ;)
동방신기, 아자 아자 화이팅!!!
P.S. I know one thing that will be eternal.

Departures @ 5:12 PM
Listening to: Heart Disease by Outsider, MC Sniper & HoranDo you know that salmons struggle to swim upstream back to where they were born just to lay eggs and then they die?
Yes, I just knew about it after watching the movie, “Departures” a Japanese film that won Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2009 Oscars. “Is it really that good?” I wondered when I watched the trailer. And I wasn’t surprise at all, ‘cus it IS that good. Only if you really, truly understands what’s the movie is trying to teach us, or make us realised and look in other way about… death.
It’s a story about a cellist that lost his job and ended up working in an abbreviation for "encoffinment". He has to assist the "departed" by ceremonially preparing the dead in front of mourners before their bodies are placed in the coffin. I guess that would be a job that most of us thought, disgusting? Scary? Or maybe something that not many of us would consider even doing it? Believe me, this movie does not “touch” any religious issues, so don’t worry too much to watch it just because you think it’s a Japanese film with Japanese culture and they might show some sort of different kind of beliefs, if-you-know-what-I-mean. In short explanation, I would just say it’s a movie that shows how this job actually works in humans’ lives, which some of us might think it would be insane to accept this kind of job, is just something that most of us have to know, why this job exist and… well, it just made death… has some sort of meaning to us, to everyone. I really don’t know how to explain it, but yeah, if you’re a normal human that’s interested in knowing about why certain things happen in this life and all that… I suggest you watch this movie. Trust me, if you get what the movie is trying to “tell” you, you’ll learn something… eventually. ;)
I’ve always hated funerals. I don’t like to see people I love die or seeing people crying for the person who died. It’s just makes me sad. I guess, that’s one of the immature sides of me. But then, there’s this part in this movie, when there’s this one family, could still be laughing and teasing their dead father who’s lying in the coffin with a peaceful expression by giving him lots of kisses marks (with lipsticks) on his face. No, it’s not that they are heartless or enjoying the father’s death. -_-; It’s just… they were laughing and crying at the same time. I don’t know why, I like that feeling. Though it actually makes me feel wanna cry even more but yeah… there’s something about that, I don’t know, it’s different. In my own understanding, it’s like they cried for the present, because the person is dead, while they laughed for the past, refreshing back the memories of that person. (: Sometimes, humans’ hearts are just unexplainable. And the ending of the movie… well, let’s just say the director is trying to make the audience realised that “It’s not about the ending, it’s about the whole movie since the beginning.”
This movie is worth watching, that’s all I can say. ;)
Gosh, can't believe I nearly forgotten to wish the angel of TVXQ. XD
HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAYXIAH;KIM JUNSU! :D Dear Junsu oppa, May all your wishes come true and may things get better okay? Don't ever give up and please continue to amaze us with your amazing voice. Stay strong and be happy always. ;)
Now, let's go watch Five In The Black Tour Concert DVD. ;)
P.S. Real practice of life starts...now.

How would my ending be? @ 7:52 PM
Listening to: When I Fall by After School
I wasn't aware of his existence at first. As time passes by, there was the moment when we locked eyes. And that was when I realised, I did felt something at that time, but refused to admit it due to the wound from the past that's still aching. However, a lot of things happened. And now I know,
"I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."
