你停在了這條我們熟悉的街
Em dừng chân nơi góc phố từng là chốn xưa của đôi ta

把你準備好的台詞全念一遍
Nhẩm lại lần nữa những lời đã chuẩn bị từ lâu

我還在逞強 說著謊
Tôi vẫn cố tỏ ra kiên cường, nói dối lòng

也沒能力遮擋 你去的方向
Cũng không có khả năng cản bước chân em

至少分開的時候我落落大方
Nhưng ít ra vào thời khắc chia li, tôi vẫn thản nhiên chấp nhận

我後來都會選擇繞過那條街
Từ đó về sau tôi vẫn thường ghé qua góc phố ấy

又多希望在另一條街能遇見
Hy vọng biết bao có thể tình cờ gặp lại em nơi nẻo lạ

思念在逞強 不肯忘
Nhớ nhung còn trắc trở, chưa thể quên

怪我沒能力跟隨 你去的方向
Chỉ trách bản thân nhu nhược, không níu được bước chân em

若越愛越被動 越要落落大方
Càng yêu càng bị động, chỉ có thể thản nhiên chấp nhận

你還要我怎樣 要怎樣
Em còn muốn tôi phải thế nào? Phải ra sao?

你突然來的短信就夠我悲傷
Những dòng tin bất chợt từ em cũng đủ khiến tôi đớn đau chua xót

我沒能力遺忘 你不用提醒我
Tôi không cách nào quên được, xin em đừng gợi nhớ

哪怕結局就這樣
Vì sợ kết quả vẫn sẽ mãi thế này

我還能怎樣 能怎樣
Tôi còn biết làm sao? Phải làm sao?

最後還不是落得情人的立場
Rốt cuộc chẳng phải cũng đã mất đi vị trí được yêu em

你從來不會想 我何必這樣
Em trước giờ chưa từng bận lòng nghĩ, sao tôi phải thế này?

我慢慢的回到自己的生活圈
Tôi dần dần quay lại nếp sinh hoạt trước kia

也開始可以接觸新的人選
Và cũng bắt đầu vun đắp những mối quan hệ mới

愛你到最後 不痛不癢
Yêu em đến cuối cùng, chẳng duyên không phận

留言在計較 誰愛過一場
Thì so đo làm gì, ai yêu nhiều hơn ai

我剩下一張 沒後悔的模樣
Điều còn đọng lại chỉ là dáng hình không hối tiếc của tôi

你還要我怎樣 要怎樣
Em còn muốn tôi phải thế nào? Phải ra sao?

你千萬不要在我婚禮的現場
Em ngàn vạn lần đừng xuất hiện trong hôn lễ của tôi

我聽完你愛的歌 就上了車
Tôi nghe xong bản tình ca em thích, rồi sẽ bước lên xe

愛過你很值得
Yêu được em đời này rất đáng

我不要你怎樣 沒怎樣
Tôi chẳng cần em phải thế nào, chẳng cần gì

我陪你走的路你不能忘
Nhưng những chặng đường tôi cùng em đi mong em đừng quên

因為那是我 最快樂的時光
Vì đó, là khoảng thời gian hạnh phúc nhất đời tôi.

Tale As Old As Time - Arden Cho x Daniel Jang x Jason Chen

What I Wish I Knew Before College

Hello world, the arrival of September means nothing to me. But to many of you out there it could mean the beginning of college! I’ve been out of school for 4 years now but it seems like just yesterday I was still a student… so as I was reminiscing, I came up with a list of things I wish I knew before going to college!

1. You don’t know yourself (even if you think you do)

You may have been the awkward loser, best basketball player, or 4.0 valedictorian of your high school but that’s all behind you now. No one cares. You may think you know what you want to do with your life, but be prepared for the start of a long journey of soul searching. Not just academically either! Be prepared to get your mind blown as you witness firsthand how your views on friends, food, career, and clothing change!

2. What happens on the web, stays on the web

The internet is not vegas

I didn’t have my first drink til I was 21 (yes unicorns exist) but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. When you’re 18 and on living on your own for the first time we all tend to make some poor (yet incredibly awesome at the same time) decisions. Just remember whatever gets posted onto the web is there to stay. If you’re underage and voluntarily post incriminating pictures online you probably weren’t meant to succeed. Just make sure if you are going to be intoxicated you’re around people you trust not to tarnish your online image by posting stuff where your parents and potential employers can see!

3. Go to class, office hours, and STAY AWAKE!

Yes I know you have a syllabus, a textbook, and a friend who you can copy notes from. But go to class. Pay attention. 

Go to office hours, get to know the TA and professor. In a lecture hall of hundreds if you can only benefit by having a good relationship with your professor. Your TA knows the ins and outs of the course and will provide invaluable clues on how to do well in the class. Check your professor’s credentials, you’ll be surprised at how influential he/she is within the field. Remember, it’s not just about the grade you get. It’s about who you know.

*Next time you’re bored divide your tuition by the amount of hours of class. Mine turned out to be $356.78 per 45 min lecture. If you had to cough up that dough yourself would you ditch?

4. Step out of your comfort zone

Feeling too comfortable at school? Take a year to study abroad. Introverted? Go join an improv club. You will never grow or progress if you stick to what you’re comfortable with and never try anything new. 

5. Make mistakes.

Yup. I’m encouraging you to make mistakes. Get wasted, make bad decisions, spend beyond your means. Whatever it is, get it out of your system. True value of college is life experience, not the classes. 

6. Intern

If you’re lucky enough to discover what you will enjoy doing as a career during college then intern. It is not about the money so get over it. You’re a college student so know your worth - which is nothing. Find an internship, go above and beyond. Ask questions, take your senior associates/bosses to lunch and pick their brain. Then soak up everything they say like a sponge. 

7. ENJOY IT!

College flies by. It is the only time in your life you will be surrounded by a bunch of people your age without any true responsibilities of real life. Making friends is as simple as knocking on doors in your residential hall or saying hi to someone in class. You can sleep until noon, dress however you want, and enjoy life. So stop complaining about how miserable you are because those stresses aint nothing compared to real life =). Just take a moment and enjoy the best time of your life! 

This probably isn’t the complete list of things I wish I knew before college, but this post is getting pretty long so I’ll stop here! Best of luck to everyone who’s still in school, I hope this is relatable and can be of some help to you! If you’re too young, come back and read this when you apply for college =)

love ya’ll

Si alguna vez te sientes solo
Yo estaré a tu lado
Yo haré que te mantengas
Si alguna vez pierdes tu vista
yo seré tu guía
Voy a ser tus ojos
podremos ser la luz de este día
cuando la oscuridad se comienze a romper
Sere el refugio de la lluvia

Best Friend - Jason Chen


Do you remember when I said I’d always be there.

Ever since we were ten, baby.
When we were out on the playground playing pretend.
Didn’t know it back then.

Now I realize you were the only one
It’s never too late to show it.
Grow old together,
Have feelings we had before
Back when we were so innocent

[Chorus:]
I pray for all your love
Girl our love is so unreal
I just wanna reach and touch you, squeeze you, somebody pinch me
This is something like a movie
And I dont know how it ends girl
But I fell in love with my Best Friend

Through all the dudes that came by
And all the nights that you’d cry.
Girl I was there right by your side.
How could I tell you I loved you
When you were so happy
With some other guy?

Now I realize you were the only one
It’s never too late to show it.
Grow old together,
Have feelings we had before
When we were so innocent.

[Chorus]

I know it sounds crazy
That you’d be my baby.
Girl you mean that much to me.

And nothing compares when
We’re lighter than air and
We don’t wanna come back down.

And I don’t wanna ruin what we have
Love is so unpredictable.

But it’s the risk that I’m taking, hoping, praying
You’d fall in love with your best friend

[Chorus x2]

I remember when I said I’d always be there
Ever since we were ten baby.
