this girl is my age

My daughters get it.

I have three girls - aged 16, 13, and 12. Tonight they made me perhaps the most proud I have been of them in quite some time. We were talking about the bombing in Manchester - and if there was anything we could do. I suggested that we might buy some of Ariana Grande’s albums.

Miss 13 suddenly turned into a politician.

“Yeah - because if we buy it, that’s saying you can’t stop us from doing anything - we’re going to do what we’re going to do - we’re going to listen to what we want, and do what we want”.

Miss 12 joined in.

“Nobody can stop us doing what we want. Isn’t it Dad.”

Miss 16 looked up from her computer as I poked my head into her room.

“Do you listen to Ariana Grande’s music?”

She looked at me like I just stepped off a shuttle bus from Mars.

“Duh.. YES!?”

“What do you think about us buying some of her music to make a statement about what happened in Manchester?”

“Do you really need to ask me that?!”

She grinned like an idiot.

I swear we didn’t bring them up to become demonstrators, or activists, but they totally would if given a cause even vaguely relating to them.

So, my name is Mia :p
I enjoy sculpting and drawing, occasionally. I think I have strong appreciation for pretty much anything that has to do with art or animation. ^-^ I listen to pretty much all kinds of music I guess? Except anything rap, R@b, or hip hop. One of my favourite artists has to Morrissey :0
Some of my favourite shows are It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rick and Morty, and Bates Motel
Erm, so it would just be nice to get to know somebody new! I’ve never had a pen pal before either, so I think this could be cool! :)

Preferences: 19-24
I’d like to get know other girls closer to my age, but I guess it doesn’t really matter that much! ^3^

I'm a 15 yr old bi girl who is just looking for some friends!! Preferably people around my age like 13-17 but I'm very flexible with age! I love Hayley kiyoko, I love to read and I like kpop and anime (tho I'm not up to date with everything so I'm more of a low key watcher) I am also extremely shy so it may take me a few to warm up!

#kdramawomensweek: day 8 // age of youth love-fest | happy international women’s day!

So I pretty much put together some of my favorite scenes from Age of Youth. They’re all scenes that really hit me hard emotionally or just personally resonated with me. When Jin Myung, whose feelings have slowly been bubbling underneath the surface, finally overflows with emotion, full of rage and agony. She finally demands the apology she’s been silently asking for. When she fell to the floor in sobs, I cried with her. I felt that grief. When Yi Na realizes she’s been holding herself back and finally lets herself go. Dammit, that scene just hit me. When Eun Jae blows up and just begs for the housemates to be nice to her I could personally relate to her pain and just how nervous she must have felt to finally let that out and tell these almost strangers how alienated they made her feel and how much it had hurt her. That’s not easy.

As you can see, most of my favorite scenes include the girls all together. The relationship that developed between these girls, different in pretty much every way, from being strangers just living in a house together to sisters that loved and protected each other in any way they could was really the main strength of the show. Even that hilarious scene when the girls beat up Eun Jae’s boyfriend because they think he’s some stranger out to hurt her shows just how willing they are to protect each other. I mean, they burst out of the house the second they heard Eun Jae scream. The girls immediately went to comfort Ye Eun when she finally broke up with a boyfriend she loved so much. And when Eun Jae finally comes home after being out all night, the girls just hug her, saying that everything is okay because she’s here and she’s safe. I’m tearing up just thinking of the scene. That love for each other that made them one of the best friendships of 2016 and just in general.

What I love about the girls individual stories is the journey they went through during the drama and where they ended up. They don’t end the drama suddenly complete and whole, but you know they’ve set themselves on that track. They learn to start forgiving and loving themselves. The ghosts they’ve lived with are never completely gone but they’re not held back and tortured by them anymore.

Anyway, what I really want to say is that I love these girls so so so so so much. There’s really nothing I can say that can convey the amount of love I have for this drama and the Belle Epoque girls. It warms my heart when I think of them and I’m just so happy there’s going to be a season 2.
