Dreams Don’t Die
Last week, I had the privilege to be the photographer for my friend’s new musical group - Triple D: Dreams Don’t Die. Normally, during the hype of Wondergirls’ Nobody, I’d shun kpop cover groups because they invaded Japanese culture cosplay cons. And many groups did it to be popular - period.
This friend of mine, created a group not just to be popular but to propel his dreams on a larger scale. At 20+ his dreams aren’t dead. This person’s philosophy just touched me - whose dreams of being a performer have died from the constant disapproval of parents that I am too old to be ‘discovered’ and the fact that the entertainment world won’t accept a person with below-standard appeal like me.
Two Weeks, Two Hours, Too Much Fun
It has been 2 weeks since I started my first real full time job. I don’t know why I waited almost a year after graduation to find a job. But I guess good things do come to those who wait and that in time, everything will fall into place.
The reason why it was difficult for me to find a job was because of my expectations. I wanted a job that will earn me what an OrCom grad should earn. Another was that I didn’t want a job that will have me sitting in a desk all day doing the same things from day 1 without any freedom to do things the way I want. I also wanted a job that will facilitate continuous learning for me with opportunities to travel while being a part of a prestigious organization.
Today I met a young girl on Omegle. She’s fun to talk to as she keeps you engaged in conversation. She runs this kpop fandom blog. So to my followers, especially those who came because of my Korean lessons, please check it out and be nice to her :) I happen to feel like she’s my young sister from across the globe.
Ahh! SNSD! New music video today! This teaser is… for lack of better phrase, such a tease. It’s going to be exciting seeing these cutesy and colorful girls do something dark and mature-looking. Download-ready.
