So I finally watched Black Panther & it was awesomeeeeeeee!

gathyou 23rd-Feb-2018 08:30 am (UTC)
I've seen it on the first screening day here in France and again, for its first weekend lmao. I don't regret going twice at the theater, there are cool little details to discover!
Such a great movie!!! The woman especially are all amazing and I'm still in awe. I want Okoye as a life coach lmao. I really wasn't expecting it, usually Marvel films are so focused on their male heros, but the movie makes me feel that T'challa was just as much in awe than the audience in front of the women in his life haha
I hope we won't have to wait too long for Black Panther 2 and that they'll have more outdoor filming too (the use of green screens hasn't distracted me but there's room for improvement!)

i'm looking for new friends on Goodreads, anyone interested? i know it's a bit random, but i love meeting people who have similar interests (like kpop//jpop), who also love reading

I'm so glad it's Friday, but because I've got loads of studying to catch up on this weekend, I'm not really looking forward to it... ):

One of my project managers decided to verbally lash out at me this past Monday for botching a proposal submission which he gave me no deadline for, no review guidance, and no client contact and internal procedure briefing. He then proceeded on Wednesday to call me in for a chat to then explain that while he was wrong for not explaining the process to me, I was wrong for everything else. That I didn’t ask around enough, didn’t learn by myself enough to figure it out. Like I was incapable, which I’m not. And at the end of the day, he had the gall to thank me in a public email for preparing the proposal that he gave me shit for earlier. I have been given no recourse for this incident until today, because apparently everybody, except for one of my other project managers, accepts that it’s just “who he is” and that I should just “let it go”. Though I don’t plan to stay pissed at him forever and plan to let it go now that I’ve made my silent treatment obvious, honestly for the past 3 days I’ve never had such a strong urge to seek vengeance in my entire life.

Hello lovely OMONA humans!
Excited for Chinese New Year in Chicago this weekend, but also stuck under a mountain of work to do. Whoever said that the last year of law school was easy was lying.

Also I'm still cracking up over this (especially since so many US media sites posted about it) and wondering why there isn't an OMONA post about it yet... https://www.allure.com/story/bts-jin-cuts-own-bangs-video
daynr 23rd-Feb-2018 09:17 pm (UTC)
that 3d year is easy myth is bs. You still need to take classes or do a clinic!

(the bar really isn't that bad, as long as you prepare.)

Should I listen to RM's mixtape? I know I'm late but due to my excitement of jhopes mixtape I decided to go back and listen to Suga's, I realize I never listened to RMs before. I know a lot people have a problem with some of his solo work though. Also why did Jin cut his own bangs like...? Lol

Anyways I hope everyone is doing well. I have a busy weekend of studying :( that I should have been doing this whole week but that didn't happen. I feel really unmotivated after I get home from work, I need to force myself to study more...
youtubelargo 23rd-Feb-2018 03:48 pm (UTC)
I am probably not the best source to ask about the RM mixtape, lol, since it's basically what cemented my love of him. 🐢 But from a technical rap standpoint, I think it's one of the best rap albums of the 2010s. "Joke" is an insanely dense song, the kind of impressive feat of verbosity that the superior "DNA" is, and still blows my mind. (Stupid as fuck video, though.) And I gotta rep "Do You", where a man dedicates a verse to talking about how wearing skirts is totally hip hop and talks about how he'll do whatever he wants damn it. (My little trans heart 🐢 🐢 )

The production is sparse, though. That's a pretty common theme in Namjoon tracks anyways - "Reflection" is probably the most musically dense thing he's done himself and that's really because it has strings, it's not dense at all - and assuming that's the part you don't like in his solo work, it's very much present here. (There is also, thank god, not an Expensive Girl level lyrical disaster on it either.) It's a very different album from Agust D, and the focus is almost entirely on Namjoon's rap ability and the twisting flows and how his words glide over the samples he uses. I can see why people aren't into it, but I love it. Clearly.

This whole week has been kind of messy for me and I'm tired but at the same time I want to write about it just to get it off my chest so

[blabla (tw depression?)]

- my bday was last weekend but I was just home doing nothing and I'm pretty sure I'm suffering from some kind of depressed/anxiety and it's gotten to the point I'm afraid it'll affect my work ability but I haven't gotten around to looking at any help yet. I guess it doesn't hurt to try, if nothing else works. There's just been too many times where I just feel overpowered by my anxiety and stress, feeling like bursting to tears (for reasons I'm not quite sure) and it keeps me from enjoying the things I should be enjoying in life. I can't sleep well, my memory is shit. Every time something good happens, something bad has to happen to rob me from being happy.

- on Monday I was out late with my friend (after a while and it was nice for a change) and since I had work the next day I got stressed about not catching a night bus so I ended up taking a taxi that stopped next to me while I was waiting for the bus. Seemed great at first but then the driver started hitting on me and saying he would come the next day and wait for me outside my house, and even though the rational part of me said this guy is prob smart enough to not do it, the whole exchange left me really anxious and the next day I avoided going home after work just in case this fucker would actually be there. Just my luck to step into the taxi that had a creepy driver.

- everything just sucks atm, I moved in to my new apartment but I have almost no furniture and the previous tenant took with him all the lights and left only cords sticking out of the roof/walls so I have to wait for an electrician to come fix it for god know show long (luckily not on my expense) so it's really dark (t)here

- I had somekinda breakdown on Wednesday and while calling to my mom about the apartment and the world tour thing. Everything just feels so overwhelming and stressful I just want to curl up inside me and not see anybody but at the same time not feel so lonely all the time. It feels like I barely have any friends and the things that used to excite me don't bring me much excitement anymore. I just don't have energy to do anything and finish anything.

- I was supposed to go to Ikea with my dad on Thursday to buy furniture and I was looking forward to it all week after my failed attempt to do it myself on my bday, but apparently he completely forgot about it or something happened but yeah he had no idea we were supposed to go, and even tho we ended up going and by then I was already getting tired and started second guessing my choices so we ended up not buying any big things just small stuff, and I'm back to square one on this whole fucking apartment decoration. I got no proper bed, no proper table, no proper closet (except for the built-in ones in the apartment), no washing machine (that my parents are supposed to buy me for my "bday"), no lights... It just sucks so much because this place doesn't like a home at all.

- on that same day earlier, I got a text from a classmate/friend from high school where he basically said he just wanted to come clean and let me to know he had feelings for me back then and thinks I'm a great person. Like... what? What was I supposed to do with this information? When I asked him he said since we were still occasionally keeping contact, it had always bothered him that he never got around to telling it to me. I feel bad for him because this came at literally the worst possible moment in my life. Idk if he's trying to revive out friendship or start something but I got so much shit going on my life rn I can barley take care of myself, yet alone put energy into other people (the irony here is he said that back then he was the one with his life all over the place so he had to get his shit together before he could start over, and now it's reversed). Also if he wants to just be "better" friends, why make it awkward with throwing in some old feelings into the mix?

- Got7 is having a cb and a world tour and I should be excited (and I am I guess?) but it's hard to be happy about anything when everything just does its best to suck away all joy from my life.

Hi doll, Happy belated birthday! I hope you have a wonderful year!
I'm really sorry that you're going through this and feeling this way. As someone who battles depression and anxiety, I hear you. Just know that you're not alone in this and there are lots of other people who understand how you're feeling. (You're of course free to reach out to me if you wanna talk)
The best advice I can give is to step back for a moment when you feel overwhelmed and breathe. Assess what is happening to you and why you feel the way you do. Then take some time to really cater to you, do you need to take some quiet time to reflect? Do you need to reach out to friends or family to be in the physical presence of another person? Do you need a hot bath (if you're into that), or something really tasty to eat? Taking time to care for your needs is really important and not done enough in my opinion. Be kinder to yourself and don't rush into all these things that are weighing heavily on you, be it work, friends (or friends trying to be more than friends in your case), school, or other stresses. Make sure that you are stopping to do a self-check and handling those needs.
You're important and you're valid! Let me know if you need anything!

Hello omona! I’m sad that the olympics are coming to a close. I’m going to miss plopping onto the family room sofa at 8pm to watch all my favorite prime time events :( at least the Paralympics are in two weeks ish. I’ve always told myself in the past that I’ll watch them but I never have, so hopefully I’ll follow through lol.
youtubelargo 23rd-Feb-2018 05:23 pm (UTC)
Hey hey Omona!!

Changing my spiritual path has been very difficult and rough for me, but I had a major meditative breakthrough last night which has left me very motivated. Dont give up with your struggles everyone!!! Your breakthroughs are coming.
mikachi613 23rd-Feb-2018 05:41 pm (UTC)
what kind of meditating do you practice? I do Zen walking meditation and kind of treat swimming laps as meditating since I don't have any distractions like music or a tv like with other exercises.
frequency 23rd-Feb-2018 05:35 pm (UTC)
the only part of the olympics i've really watched is the figure skating, lol. they make it look so easy! i know i'd be slipping the minute i set foot on the ice. :')

after 13 1/2 months, the shower in my hall bathroom is finally usable again. it's nice not having to walk through my parents' room to take a shower.
just need a rug and a hamper. we had one, but we think one of the neighbors stole it. it was in the garage, but now it's ~missing~.

Hello Omona, welcome back to the U.S. for me. It seems every time I go overseas my male friends out themselves as Trump likers, always for "business" or "economy" reasons. Yay!!!

[Spoiler (click to open)]I am on a layover and I am OVER it. I mean, it's been a really easy travel schedule and I'm spoiling myself with wine (because who doesn't drink wine for brekkie?) but STILL I want a shower. And my airport ride is saying they're coming to pick me up late (only like 15 minutes, but still) and I'm struggling to not throw a massive fit.

And mostly I'm pouty and drinking because I know my Saturday - Wednesday are going to be 100% study time, ugh, ugh, ugh. And then I need to figure out tons of life choices, like where to live and how to make money, and I want instead to have been born with a naturally hard worker. Boo.

Ohhh spill the tea on the Trump supporters. Men ain't shit though, so it's not surprising. My uncle swore up and down he wasn't a Trump supporter and said something a week or so ago that proves he is.

I'm glad you are back, but sad that you got some rough choices ahead. Good luck studying.

Have Xiumin hugging and trying to bite DO as motivation?

french lessons have been coming on well for me. i'm really realising how good a teacher i had in school (and how naturally good i am at languages) because there's a lot in grammar and pronunciation that i legitimately learned and remember; i'm mostly rusty on vocabulary. i'm now trying to organise myself to go on a weekend trip to paris to get some real-life practice and immersion and the got7 concert date is a wonderful excuse
vintage_boom 24th-Feb-2018 04:12 am (UTC)

hello omona, well now i can officially say that i am probably not going to have a summer nor do i know when i'll be taking a vacation. long story short, is that our credit union is in the process of taking over a bank. so that means I will be super busy with work, i'm in the IT Departement, so i will be helping out with converting all the equipment and what not.

i am so ready for HIXTAPE and this EXO/CL concert during the closing ceremonies. sad to see the olympics end, but i really haven't been paying attention to it.

we've gotten 2 snowstorms this week and will have round two tomorrow afternoon/night. I AM SO SICK OF SNOW ALREADY. my body is killing me from shoveling. make it stop!

if this looks like a letter, i'm sorry. just rambling on and on like i always do. ♥
mewgical 24th-Feb-2018 02:26 am (UTC)

Hixtape who? where? Seriously though, has there been news and I missed it?

I'm sick of this weather too. We had one really nice day and now we are back to shit and they keep threatening us with snow.

I'm sorry you won't get off time for a vacation. Make them pay you more. jk I know jobs wouldn't be that good to anyone.
