🎶I live for the applause 👏🏼🎶 Gaga blew my mind last night, figuratively but somewhat literally as I now have the most insane pounding headache. @queenvictoriareigns and @veronicat3 surprised me with floor tickets and I saw every speckle of glitter on that goddess’ face, we were that close. I’m beyond thankful to them both for the awesome early bday gift! Love you both so much!
Coming Soon: posts about my crazy grad school life-lab work-plus research-AND life as TA.
I’ve been busy, between work, travel and personal stuff. I hope to do 100 days of productivity as well.
Oh, the semester starts on Monday and I have my passion planner. AND I only have 2 semesters left until I graduate with my M.S.
“There is something I thought of after I broke up with my girlfriend of 8 years. She was closer to me than my family, and she was really good to me to the point of making me wonder why. But for a while, I focused on work so that I could become more financially stable. I’ve had a restaurant business that went bankrupt, I’ve run a street booth, and I’ve also moved plastic boxes for a beer supplier. However, one day my girlfriend suddenly asked to break up with me. It was out of the blue. I felt like it was my fault that we broke up, so I had a really hard time and I was not able to eat anything other than a bottle of yogurt drink per day. I thought that I would maybe lose half of myself, but actually I felt as though about ⅔ of myself suddenly broke apart. So with whoever I meet from now on, I need to keep half of myself for my own no matter what. In order to do that, there is one requirement. My life must be enjoyable.”
“8년 반 사귄 여자친구랑 헤어지고 나서 생각한게 하나 있어요. 제 가족보다 더 가족같은 애였고, 저한테 정말 잘했거든요. 내가 뭐가 좋다고 이렇게 잘해주나 싶을 정도로. 그런데 제가 경제적으로 안정적으로 살아보려고 한동안 엄청 일만 했어요. 식당도 한 번 말아먹고, 노점상도 하고, 맥주대리점에서 상자 나르기도 했어요. 근데 어느날 여자친구가 갑자기 헤어지쟤요. 진짜 뜬금 없었죠. 제 잘못으로 헤어진 것 같아서, 하루에 드링킹 요구르트 하나 말고는 아무것도 못 먹고, 진짜 힘들었어요. 제 절반이 떨어져나갈 줄 알았는데, 2/3이 댕강 떨어져 나갔으니까요. 그러니까 앞으로는 무슨 일이 있어도, 누굴 만나더라도 내 마음 속에 반 이상은 나여야 돼요, 무조건. 그러려면 하나 반드시 필요한 조건이 있어요. 제 삶이 진짜 재밌어야죠.”
