You made my mind wander into places I did not know existed. You influenced my desires in life and made me find my true passion. Even though we ended with a bitter taste in my mouth, I am entirely grateful for what you have showed me.
I started this around the end of December and when the holidays ended and classes came back, I got so busy I totally forgot about this. So finally, here it is. Happy Valentines Day to all, and to all of you who are Jimin trash stans just like me, this is for you. <3
I’d like to thank each and every fansite of–not just Jimin’s (from whom I got most of the pictures used in this post) but–all the members of Bangtan for providing beautiful pictures of our dear idols. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. 화이팅! 감사합니다~
Some things have been bouncing around my noggin for a couple weeks now so let’s be honest for a minute.
I was never an elite weightlifter, or anywhere near it.
I was never a sponsored athlete.
(In the traditional sense)
I never placed at the national meets I attended
There was never anything inherently special about me as an athlete.
I showed up to big meets and was nothing more than another lifter, but despite all of that, weightlifting gave me an outlet, it was completely different than any sport I’ve ever played and it made me feel like I had finally fit in somewhere. I had something that belonged entirely to me, I had something to offer. And no sooner than that feeling of belonging had finally come did it slip away.
Transitioning from seriously training as a weightlifter, with a national platform in mind to simply trying to make time for it, and having to direct that training intensity toward things for which I have zero passion in comparison, has proven incredibly difficult.
I feel like I’ve lost a part of me, I’ve never in my life felt so unsure of who I am. Basic tasks have never been so difficult and I’m struggling to apply everything that I gained from the greatest sport in the world to my new life.
I’ll get there someday, but for now I’m still entirely head over heels in love with weightlifting and more importantly, with the community that comes with it and there isn’t a damn thing I wouldn’t do to have it back.
Apparently its another helsa week for Valentine and here’s my participation. Soon as I heard this song I thought of hans and he’s singing/praying to Elsa. Elsa is his ‘God’ someone who can help him through his troubles. Sorry it’s not happy, I wanted to do a serious one and it took forever to make as I wasn’t motive to finish it at first. I’m glad I have as I’m please how it turned out.
I’ve been trying to get a clearer idea of possible career paths for myself and the only thing I’ve achieved is to make myself so frustrated and upset that I want to huddle up in bed for the rest of the day.
Actually it’s kinda weird that I never talk/post about climbing on here because I feel like everyone knows I’m really passionate about dance, everyone knows about work and how much I love t but I think it’s crazy that I’ve left no indication that at almost any given time I’m reading Rock and Ice and I climb usually three nights a week and I’m actually pretty good (I’m like 11 c-d which is not bad for 5'6" and climbing three years) and my hands feel best when they’re crusty with chalk and the sound of clipping into a draw gives me a rush I just find it so fucking weird that I literally never talk about it here.
i think i’ve decided that i’m gonna wait until carmilla is officially over (whenever season 3 ends) to get my tattoo. i already have quotes in mind, but i have a feeling season 3 may bring some quotes along that are even better
Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.
