“I’m lucky enough to have a strong fan base, and I think that also made me worry less. I get the feeling that they’re with me for a journey, as opposed to buying singles. The way that I follow artists that I love, I’m with them for the long run because I’m interested in them as a person and what they have to say.”
I love her so much for this. Instead of telling them to run away or just “stay strong”, she tells them to focus on their studies (the key to your own future) and to latch onto a piece of your own happiness. Then she ends with an ultimatum: that life gets better so long as you continue pushing for it.
Idk about you guys, but I’m so glad we have 5 pieces of happiness we get to look up to and call our own.
i think sm should bring them to more popular tv shows. media play / reality appearances are very important to put a group in the public eye and get people more interested on them, check their songs, etc...
there’s not a lot of variety shows out there right now that accept idols on often. from what i’ve read they don’t always bring in ratings anymore - at least not as much as they did a few years ago, and shinee’s been on a few very good ones already over the last week. “abnormal summit” is one of the most popular variety shows in south korea at the moment and “snl korea” is also very, very popular. i would love to see them on “running man” but they only do episodes with full idol groups once every blue moon and big bang just filmed for it so it’s doubtful that they will during this promotional period; the same goes for “happy together”. i’m holding out for appearances on either “sketchbook” or “weekly idol”, especially the first because shinee has appeared on there for virtually every promotional period since 2012, but we’ll have to wait and see. i’m also hoping that they get scheduled on more radio shows (like fm date, dreaming, shim shim tapa, ect.).
does anyone listen to bad sungs? they’re a really good band and their only album is really catchy, imagine a Night Visions era Imagine Dragons comboed with Magic Man and Walk The Moon and you have Bad Suns basically
i went to see my students’ musical and at the end they gave all the teachers and student teachers flowers and my kids screamed SO LOUDLY for me and then after like 5 parents thanked me and told me how much their kids loved me and i miss my students so much!!!
i have never in my life felt more loved by a group of people than those 24 5th graders i wish i could stay with them forever just because they make me SO HAPPY
Day 6 Blog entry. Love how important is it when you are doing something?! It’s the most important thing! My students always ask me how do you do it Luis? How do you coach & run a business, teach at school & then go back to coach & run a business. I tell them: LOVE! I wake up daily thanking God for the opportunity to change lives. It’s not difficult to do something when you have God, family & amazing peeps that are with you daily to make your vision & dreams come true.
Don’t get me wrong it’s physically & mentally tough. But nothing thrown at me is hard enough that God won’t get me through it with a smile on my face. My father always taught me to work. Work ethic is everything. Consistency is everything. Never let anyone out work you Chungy. That’s what he told me. So I listened.
Today’s training was not my jam but I pushed through. Deadlifts! :( All the barbellas out deadlift me & that’s ok. LOL I am getting stronger since the hammy has been in rehab. 100% better.
I did get to sneak in 5 sets of chest 10 reps at body weight. Love that pump feeling. One thing I can say I miss about good old body building was the pump. Always good to take care of the ornaments as my students would say. LOL
Eating more calories are still tough to come by when you have a jam packed schedule. I sneak in as much food as I can. It’s working. I feel stronger. My lifts are getting better & my energy levels are up.
Best part of training lately is seeing my wife get back into her workout routine & with Olivia. It’s been amazing to have our daughter be apart of the process the entire way. Today we switched out kettle bell Turkish get ups for baby get ups! LOL ALL THE LOVE!!! Kids are a product of there environment. Olivia will be surrounded with love, positiveness, health & fitness.
I hope this blog is still helping my peeps with motivation. I want to show you that there is enough time in the day for health & fitness to be apart of your life. Just takes the want! How bad do you want it peeps?
