Had a productive day today. Did a lot of house work, mainly tidying up living spaces which had become cluttered with stuff that we said we’d sort later. I tried walking the dogs before one of them slipped his harness and went trotting off, had to shove the other two in the porch before running after him, the little shit! Also, carrying 15kg is hard work, no wonder there’s been an increase of people doing weighted runs!
I also printed out my new workout guide, think having it physically there instead of hidden away on my laptop will make me more inclined to do it. Still have a bit of anxiety over going to the gym but we will see how that plays out. Now I can drive there I don’t have to strategically plan my times to miss the RAF lunch time rush which starts at 11am and ends at 1pm. I used to get anxiety over walking there to be able to workout before it started, and the fact that it took me half an hour to walk meant that I had to force myself out of bed at 7am so I could have breakfast, have enough time to sort the dogs out etc etc… Now I can do a 2 minute drive that won’t be so bad! Plus I wont have to walk back after leg day which was always awful!
Hopefully I can kick myself up the bum, get some job applications out, get my ass to the gym, keep up with the house work and things will fall into place before moving August/September time!
HYYH was all about youth and the struggles that came with it so I believe the consequent albums (WINGS and YNWA) are about growing up and leaving their youth/childhood behind.
Clothes There’s a heavy focus of clothes in the MV e.g. BTS sitting on a mountain of clothes. It’s possible that these clothes are ones they no longer wear. Everybody has clothes that no longer fits them when going through childhood and puberty. Perhaps these clothes represent their past as something they cannot “wear” anymore.
Train The train is in the MV, travelling to an unknown destination. It represents BTS travelling (into adulthood) and not staying still. In the beginning, Taehyung is seen stepping onto tracks as a train approaches. This could represent the the feelings of entering adulthood (scared, sad, helpless, etc.).
Seasons The beginning of the MV starts in winter and ends with entering spring. Entering adulthood may seem scary at first but it gets better. It also symbolises the passing of time and change.
“No season can last forever”
Shoes Jimin is shown with a pair of shoes in the beginning and end of the MV. We don’t know who they belong to. I previously thought they belonged to a dead member (Jin) but they might be Jimin’s. Just like the clothes, he’s grown too big to fit into the shoes (they represent his youth). At the end, he hangs up his shoes as closure, and a way to finally move on and accept that he cannot remain in “youth” anymore.
Omelas/Motel Omelas is portrayed as a motel in the MV. A motel symbolises all things temporary. You go there but don’t stay there forever. Also, the motel has no vacancies, so there is no room in “paradise” which may be youth. The boys realise they have to move on.
Rebelling BTS are shown having food fights and messing up a room. Jin also pierces Jimin’s ear with a safety pin. These can all considered acts of rebellion, something most teenagers do. This also symbolises the themes of youth, coming of age and adulthood.
Group We are made to believe Jungkook is alone in the train but it’s revealed that the best of BTS are with him. Also, Jimin is with the group when he hangs up the shoes. Just like the album title, this may represent that even though it seems you’re alone, you’re not. Everybody experiences childhood and the struggles of leaving it. You Never Walk Alone. <3
yes it’s great that negan killed a rapist but please don’t forget that he himself is a rapist who literally scares women into trading sex for protection and for the protection of those they love and this does not clear him of that whatsoever
