Professor Keith Bangs taught me about all the handy backstage stuff I needed to know in Drama 10. He was always so nice to all of us in the class and you can tell that overall he’s just an incredibly happy person.
Happiness is infectious.
He just said hi to me right now while passing by the office cheerfully. I don’t actually know if he remembers my name but I know he recognizes me every time he sees me because he always makes the effort to say hi or ask me how I’m doing.
I want to be someone who makes people happy even just with a hello/wave/smile. I may not know/remember every name, but I do know that everyone should thrive to be kind to one another and potentially brighten someone’s day; help others realize that their life isn’t so bad because I know in the end of the day that my life is good. Why? because God is good. all the time.. all the time, God is good. I just make it extra hard on myself with my worries, insecurities, shortcomings..etc.
SHE IS TOO AMAZING & I WOULD LOVE TO SING ON HER SHOWWWWW. I wanna crack jokes with her. sigh
Can you help me by tweeting?
" Please help @JenniferJChung #getonellen !!!! SHE WILL SING YOU SONGS! " and tell your friends to retweet that too! yipeeeeee
A girl’s gotta try. There ain’t no shame in trying to achieve your dreams as long as you do it with a smile and continually WORK FOR IT! Don’t forget that you’re lost without those who have your back.. and so many of you do. Thank you.
honestly, some people retweeted already and it makes my stomach have butterflies. I’m at work eating bread. Work 9 to 11, 1 to 3, then class 3 to 5.. Oh man, life as we know it, folks.
I think it makes us work harder. Though we should be careful because it can drive us crazy as individuals. My insecurities, in the end, are beneficial to me because it helps me recognize how much more I need God in my life.
I hope three-ish hours of sleep is enough to last me the whole day tomorrow
- I’m sometimes awkward (not like UHH what the heck why are you coming up to me but more like a EEHEEEEHE AHH IM SHYY HAPPY SURPRISED kind of awkward) and in effect I may seem distant. Please trust that the word “fan” to me is still very new. It’s easier to say “subscriber” on YouTube but I realize that the word “subscriber” makes people sound more like mechanical robots so I’m transitioning to the word “fan.” - I’m actually very happy to meet you and am thankful that you are one of the wonderful souls who let me continue to do the very thing I enjoy most and am passionate about. - I’m just as happy to take a picture with you.. if not happier. Why? YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO IS HELPING ME WORK TOWARD MY DREAM! Plus..I get to put a face to a mere view count on YouTube. My blessings are accountable by numbers, but when I meet someone who has enjoyed my music/covers/performances, I’m meeting another blessing God has brought in my life. You matter to me because you are another human in this tough world and we need each other. If I can bring a smile to your face, it brings a smile to my face. If you’re going through heartache and you find comfort in my song, you’ll know that you’re not alone because I’ve shared with you my very own experiences. Things come full circle and the world continues to go ‘round.
I hope you don’t ever leave after meeting me thinking, “gosh, it seemed like she thought she was too cool for us.” It’s quite the contrary, actually. I don’t think I’m cool at all.. okay now I’m just being negative. But like many of you, I’m a student. I’m a daughter. I’m a friend. I’m a dreamer. I’m a human being who gets tired from a long day, feels fresh from a lot of rest, shy when unfamiliar to surroundings… you get my drift :)
I thought about this after I met a group of fans at the Cerritos mall with Brandon.
me: Do you think I came off mean or distant? brandon: Mean or distant..? Hmm possibly..? me: NOoooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
I couldn’t say bye properly or hold good conversation because one of the workers stopped us from taking pictures in the store since it wasn’t allowed. I hope to run into you all again soon :)
So in conclusion: When I meet fans I am so very happy to meet you and would love to thank you personally for being my support.. despite how awkward I may seem. And if I’m afraid to smile, it’s probably because I’m scared something might be stuck in my teeth.
A man who loves God more than he loves me, but because he loves God he knows how to love me.
A man who puts his family first and loves his kids, is active in their lives.
Teaches me everyday, and is willing to learn everyday.
Works hard for loooove.
“Sometimes we love people so much that we have to be numb to it. Because if we actually felt how much we love them, it would kill us. That doesn’t make you a bad person. It just means your heart’s too big.”—Riding in Cars with Boys. (via daiiisylove)
France PRO: Learn French, Experience something COMPLETELY new, maybe one day I can write songs in French CON: 3 hours of French class 5 days a week + 2 hours of elective class 2 days a week, money exchange rate is probably expensive, might feel uber alone., application due January 11, cost is about $11,000 (financial aid, fsho needed)
South Korea PRO: Visit family I haven’t seen since I was 13 (i.e. dad, grandma, grandpa, cousins, etc.), not worry about having to study too much but still get credit done, application due February, cost is about $7,000 (financial aid, fsho still needed but not as much as France), money exchange rate is good CON: Not experiencing something COMPLETELY new, feeling alone at night because I really am not planning on going out drinking every night even if it is legal (waiting until I turn 21 in America - but even when I do I’m not sure if I’m going to drink.), i will feel fatter than I do here fosheez.
EH watch me not go to either. BLAH! Any suggestions?
1) Don’t assume. I’m an over thinker. I analyze a lot. Now, that doesn’t mean my analysis is correct, so until I get to the bottom of things I really shouldn’t assume that what I’ve detected is correct. You know the whole “it’ll only make an ass out of u and me”? hardy har, get it? assume?
2) Don’t take things personally. After I assume, I can easily take things personally - as if the whole world is out to get me.. or quite the opposite, just shun me completely, turn away from me, and walk away denying my existence as a whole. That’s to the ultimate extreme. I just have to remember things can’t get TOO personal because the truth is, a lot of the people I take offense from probably aren’t that close to me in the first place. If they don’t know me very well, how can it be personal?
3) Do manage yourself well. I mean this in every aspect. Manage my time for business/music/school/work/recreation well with a planner, manage my eating habits with a diary, and manage my exercising with a schedule. All things must get done. I gotta kick the habits of sleeping too late. Gotta train myself for the future and what is to come.
Now, I must read for my upper div drama lit class. I’m kind of excited for it. Honest :)
Getting to do collaborations with people is rare for me because of my time management. Whether it’s the lack thereof or that I’m managing my time too much to the point where I don’t have any space to do anything more than my usual schedule q2#*%01!!! (sigh), I just don’t have that much time.
Going back home was stressful, but I’m glad that I went to the common simple beautiful ways HARDY HAR HAR!
This break I got in touch with the guy’s from Legaci. I was really excited because after Brandon told me about them, I pretty much fell in love with how sharp they were. (I don’t mean KEY wise, but just that AWESOME) I knew that I had to at least meet them.
With the little time that we had, I got to meet Del, Micah, and Dom. Chris was unfortunately not able to make it, but I got to talk to him through twitter. He’s bomb too! Del and I had been corresponding back and forth about the project so it was nice to finally meet him.
They all greeted me so kindly and with open arms that I got even more excited than before.
They’re hard working individuals just doing what they love. Please support their music. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll invite them to perform at any gig your holding! TRUST. THEY ARE SOLID!
I brought my brother Joseph along too. What a trooper just watching us practice and then ending up being an important factor with recording us haha
As you can see, they’re really fun guys hahaha
I can’t wait until we finally post up the video!!! Are you excited? I know I am :)
