Three of my fave kpop MVs

posting this because I'm  bored death

Okay, one of my favorite ones is BGGG by miss A. Why? Because it's a fun song that's easy to sing along to. Plus, everyone is gorgeous and the dance is great.



Another one is Neorago (It's You) by Super Junior because the choreo is amaaaazing. I like how the story line part was filmed in one shot. Plus, I really really like this song. 



Last one for this post is Love Song by Big Bang. I love them and I love this song and those are enough reasons for this to be at the top of my fave kpop MV list. Well, it can't hurt that the videography was extremeeeely well done.

what I have to say about your homilyCollapse )

Today was the last day of my Western History course and I just have to talk about it because that class was one of the best I have ever had. 

My professor does not have a degree in History. Reading about History is only a hobby to him. Out of all the history classes I have taken in my entire life, this one affected me the most not because I had learned so much from him in terms of historical dates or figures, but because of how he taught us how History affects us. I'm probably not going to remember all the things he said but I never want to forget what he told the class before he dismissed us.
 
He said that he teaches History not because he wants students to learn who did what in the past. He teaches History because he wants to show students how History teaches humanity.  History isn't just about what happened in the past and who did what, it's about what humanity is all about and what it is capable to do. History isn't really about great people or great events because, really, what is great? How do you define greatness? Another thing he said was that every single person has a place in shaping history and that what makes life worthwhile is being humane and not just human - doing the things that make us human. 
 
He also talked about how amusing it was that people who the right thing are praised an given medals and honors because really, why should you give medals to people who do what should be done. Does that mean that every other person who does the right thing isn't doing what is right? *sigh* This is really hard for me to write about because it's something that I have so much to say about but it's so hard for me to put into words. I feel so much about what my professor told us about History and humanity and what it teaches us.
 
I have always loved History. When I was younger, I loved watching documentaries about wars and historical events. I never thought that my interest in History was anything unique and it was only as a college student that I realized that I really want to study History. Now that I think about it, History as a way of teaching what Humanity is all about is the primary reason why I love it so much. I have so many things to say about humanity, how i hate and love it... History, to me, is not something that is purely academic. Thank you, Sir Tirol, for making me realize that History is more than just names and events, but about man and humanity, about how it transcends time and affects every single life.

 omg I don't know why but I suddenly feel so blue and just tired. I feel so old and underachieved. I had always thought that by this age, I would have done something big in my life or made a difference to the world or someone else's life. It doesn't help that celebrities today are my age or younger than I am. I feel talentless! Ugh, I hate feeling this way. Make-up and kpop can't even make me happy right now. Not even ontd. Fuck, I need to sleep this off.

First day of the first semester is done!! Today, I had Self-defense which is pretty cool and relatively lax compared to my previous PE. Time slot is perfect and the room is well ventilated. I also had Accounting 30 today. Meh. After accounting I had Western History. The teacher is pretty cool although I'm a little nervous about the workload, not that it's extremely heavy. I dunno, I'm just kind of nervous with the way the lectures an exams are going to go. Anyhoo, after history I had Social  Antrophology. The teacher is really nice. Her name is Nota and she studied island municipalities. She showed a bunch of pictures of different communities and cultures. I think she took the pictures herself, but I'm not quite sure. All in all, my first day went pretty well. I'm hoping tomorrow goes alright as well. Oh  I also submitted my load revision forms today, paid my dorm fee, had my ID validated, bought books and borrowed library books. I feel so accomplished! :>

In other news, I am still not over Kim Hee Chul. Oh Heenim! ♥
