the Best of Lee Seung Gil, episode 9

OK, I know it’s cutesy to think that in YOI, Yuuri or Victor would give up their medals and glory for each, and yeah, it’s a pretty romantic thought, but I think it shows a lack of understanding of what it actually is to be a top athlete.

Fuck, if winning a gold medal in the Olympics meant I just have to give up my family, my friends, my cat, and die the very next week, I’d still take that deal. I would trade my whole life, all my other life dreams, if it meant I could feel what it is like to be an Olympic champion.

This is not an overstatement. I gave up my adolescence, my friendships, practically my whole personal life to just reach the European Championships. I dedicated half my life, and when Tokyo 2020 comes, it will more than half, for my sport, for the chance to feel the glory that comes from being the best, the best of myself and the best among others. It’s addictive, it can be downright toxic, but the rush of doing a PB, a NR, and (OMG!!!) a WR makes it all worth it. All the sacrifices, all the pain, all the health problems, physical and mental, meant nothing when I won bronze in a European Youth competition, it will mean nothing when I get to that start line in the Senior competitions.

Yeah, sure, it’s cute that someone would give up their athletic dreams for the love for someone else, but ask any athlete that’s just right there, just in reach of the finals (or even just the semifinals) in a World Championship. Giving that up before you reach your mid 30s, giving up what you achieved since then?

Major fucking idiot.

Welcome to the mindset of high level competition.

Having a son with Luke Alvez would involve:

  • Luke tries really hard to be one of those soccer dads that go to sports events or school plays or open house
  • But he can’t sometimes because of work and he gets really sad about that
  • Loves to throw the ball around with his “little man”
  • Literally teaches his son everything he can, from sports to fighting moves and even how to cook his favourite meal
  • Is totally the type of dad to be like “before 8am, he’s your son”
  • Doesn’t tell Dad Jokes, but he plays Dad Pranks
  • Is a super understanding dad and he always tries to tell his son that he’d be proud of him no matter what
  • Gets overly-excited during sports event. Cheers for his son louder than every other parent

sorry but if you enjoy “hunting for sport” aka murdering animals for no other reason than your personal enjoyment then i need you to stay 100000000000 ft away from me at all times, don’t look at me don’t talk to me don’t talk to my friends, just go away honestly, thanks. literally what is wrong with you that you find joy and amusement in taking the lives of living creatures

EDIT: chill man if you send me hate over this post i’ll block you

EDIT 2: yo i realize that the wording of this was apparently a bit ambiguous? i recognize and appreciate people that hunt for population regulation, i know how important that is thanks. those people usually eat what they hunt anyways, and i specifically said hunting for sport so c h i l l

Isn’t it awkward when someone asks you what your hobbies are/what do you do in your free time… like what should I answer to that? Watch animes and cry over 2D fictional characters? Stare at the ceiling all day long? Do completely nothing but exist? Make graphics?? Do you even know what graphics are? Procrastinate?? ?? What do you expect from me…
