Going back to 2012

A Gentleman’s Dignity was showing while I was in Korea. I recall Paris and Tinu watching it once in a while in the general living room at night. I was uninterested cause I didn’t want to watch Korean dramas when I’m in Korea.

To be honest, I tried watching the drama twice before, but I couldn’t pass the third episode due to the main actress’ exaggerating cuteness. Third times the charm. I decided to give it another shot and have three more episodes before I finish this series.

I looked passed her cuteness (often skipped her parts). My favorite couple is the 17 years difference Mehri and Yoon. Honestly, Mehri’s continuous whines were also annoying. However, Yoon. Wow. Yoon. I knew from the start that I would like his character the most. Now I’m obsessed with Yoon (played by Kim Min Jong). From the way he wore his suits and vests to his casual attire when throwing baseballs to release his stress and problems.

WHY YOU SHOULD DRINK A SHITLOAD OF WATER DAILY

Your brain is your biggest liquid asset. It is composed of more than 85 percent water. Little wonder then that if you are dehydrated, your thinking ability drops dramatically, as does the performance of your whole body.

● Water is 2nd only to oxygen in survival. A body can live for minutes without oxygen, for a few days without water, and several weeks without food.

● The human body is 60% water, blood is 90% water, muscles are 75% water, and bone is 25% water. Water is one of the main structures of the body. Drain your body of water you’ll be left with a few pounds of chemicals that are worth about $5 you guys!

●Your brain is 1/50 of your total body weight, but it receives 20% of the blood circulation, so 1/5 of your body’s water requirements come from your brain.

●Water balances and regulates almost every other system in the body — temperature regulation, digestion, and waste excretion. You cannot eliminate toxins from your body with insufficient water.

●Most headaches and feelings of fatigue are caused by dehydration.

●You lose about 10 cups of fluid each day in sweat, urine, and bowel movements. Even the air you exhale contains vital water vapor.

●If you wait until you are thirsty to drink, you are already dehydrated. Unlike hunger, thirst is a bad sign.

●Drinks that contain caffeine (colas and coffee) are diuretics, which means they lessen the body’s ability to absorb and retain water — they rob the body of water.

●It is the most time efficient way of improving your mood and overall performance. It takes seconds to drink a glass of water, but the benefits last for hours.

●Combined with a healthy lifestyle, drinking water increases weight loss.

I’m eating more vegetables because of you.

"America was built on two monumental crimes: the genocide of the Native American and the enslavement of the African American. The tendency of official America is to memorialize other peoples’ crimes and to forget its own - to seek a high moral ground as a pretext to ignore real issues."

Holding On

8/16/14

I woke up from my friend Daeun’s call in the middle of night. I didn’t pick up cause I was tired.

A few minutes later, I bursted in tears because I was reminded of him. We were all friends in Korea. I asked myself and begged to just forget about this individual I haven’t seen in a year. He hasn’t look at me in the same way in two years. I prayed to start missing someone else, besides him.

I’m surrounded by memories of Korea. Let me please just start anew. I can keep the memories but not the person. My friends have described me as sometimes blunt and cold-hearted. I can let go of a person quicker than others. But this one is a special case. Very special.

I tell my friends when they rarely ask that I don’t have feelings for him anymore. It’s obvious a lie.

I’m praying to get over him. It starts with me.
