I've gotten stuck watching these kpop ranking videos... it's interesting seeing the generation shift in the top MVs one per year (I'm not sure do they count the accumulated views 'till now or just that year), it's almost boring to see the same couple of groups pop up every time (tho 2018 surprisingly had some nice variety)

This one actually had a lot of interesting info in it that I didn't know before

Also you guys agree with this one?

I've watched the MV ones because I like seeing the trends change over time.

My "good for nothing I hate to work boss" is up for a promotion she doesn't deserve and I'm honestly about to go mad because we do her job, yet she pretends she's the one doing it, and now she's gonna be rewarded for
- doing nothing
- making mistakes (we then have to deal with)
- taking days off without informing anyone
- and much more

Fuck this
gathyou 21st-Jun-2019 09:14 am (UTC)
This makes me feel so angry, wtf
How are your other coworkers reacting to the promotion? Is there anything your coworkers and you could do?
Sending you virtual hugs and support <3

[life updates]
After three weeks at my new job I already helped 4 people get jobs and I'm super happy!!! One started already, another is supposed to start on Monday. Now I have to make sure the job themselves go smoothly for all of them, which is another beast in itself.
Flat situation is still a clusterfuck but hey I'm fine. Surprisingly not stressed out of my mind. I've decided to look for a studio. I love having flatmates but it's so hard to find a good shared flat here in Paris. Since I can't live alone, I'm going to finally adopt a cat <3 can't wait!!! Meanwhile, I'll be at my brother again.

For the SK trip, we decided on Seoul with a three-day trip to Jeju in the middle of it, and a few day trips (Jeonju, maybe a pension as well). It's getting real :D

Which summer comeback are you most excited about?
So far, WJSN still have my favourite summer single & mini-album. Honorable mention to Twice because I really like Happy Happy/Breakthrough, even though they're super different.
I'm disappointed with Red Velvet's single but at least the bsides are my taste ; I only put the bsides on my phone and the mini flows really well that way lol.
I'm really looking forward to GFriend's comeback!!! looks different from their usual concept, I'm intrigued.
aures 21st-Jun-2019 10:51 am (UTC)
wow that's amazing! it must be so satisfying to help other people get jobs!
oh so jelly you are going to adopt a cat! what kind are you looking to adopt? a tiny one or one a little older or ....?

oh i also love WJSN, but i also love ATEEZ's wave (they actually got their first win yesterday!), it's super fun and summery and i highly recommend you watch their live performances because they always sing live which is refreshing these days

i'm looking forward to chung ha's comeback
cosmicdaze 21st-Jun-2019 09:16 am (UTC)
coming up on a month of unemployment :( i hope i can find a job soon
i'll be officially finished with undergrad in nine days (boo for summer classes, but i needed them to properly graduate) and i just...have no idea what i'm going to do with my time now. it's too hot here to do something fun like hiking or take a day trip somewhere (it's going to be at least 100f/37c here everyday until like september fml). i want to get back into writing or take a dance class or something but i'm such an obsessive perfectionist that i can't have fun doing anything if i'm not the best at it lmao

i'm really looking forward to chungha's comeback and baekhyun's solo album <3 can't wait to get my new eribong as well
gathyou 21st-Jun-2019 09:57 am (UTC)
I hope you're not putting stress on yourself because it's going to be one month : from what I've seen in my work, it's a regular time period in active job searches (especially when you have other stuff to do on the side, like summer classes). How are you planning your job search? Do you need any help/advise?
Good luck <3
timetobegin 21st-Jun-2019 10:47 am (UTC)
I'm content with where I am in life right now - yes, I'd say that I'm genuinely happy. Which is weird for me because /chronic mental health issues/ but it's also the best feeling. I feel like I'm really coming into my own in my late 20s and getting to know myself and doing what | want with my life.

Also I've been watching The Secret Life of my Secretary and Gal Hee/Min Ik are my favourites and I can't get enough of how SOFT THEY ARE FOR EACH OTHER. All their interactions radiate so much love and squishiness and generally peak married domesticity and the only thing keeping them from actually married bless is them having half a brain cell between them to own up to their feelings. Min Ik in particular is like..... willfully ignorant of his feelings and I l o v e it.
vintage_boom 21st-Jun-2019 08:52 pm (UTC)
aww I'm really happy for you that you're content <3

hi friends ♥

how are you guys?

my gp put me on hormones for like a 2 week trial thing and it's been AWFUL. this is in my top 3 most awful medications ever, it's fighting for number 1 though. i have not been this sick in years and ive been on the edge of going to hospital multiple times because of the side effects because i could not handle the pain and everything (and i'm v. used to pain, so that says something)
and the past 4 days i have been bawling my eyes out because i'm so tired of this sh*t and the pain and the side effects that i have decided to stay in bed ALL day today. And that's really something because i'm always really strict with myself and i never allow myself to do this and im so happy i finally let myself because i have not cried yet today
never again
it's also really playing with my mental health and i have been battling an eating disorder for many many many years and i'm finally doing a lot better and i can just FEEL it creeping up on me again like it's tempting me and i know it's because of the whole "no control on the medication/pain/side effects/feeling awful AF" thing but it's mentally so tiring that i also have fight really hard not to give in and stay strong whilst also battling the whole medication stuff
the shitty thing is that i know these feelings are getting worse when i don't eat well, so i'm honestly trying to eat really really well but this medication makes me feel so extremely nauseous that's hard and that's also frustrating >.< it's not really helping.
that's why a rest day is a good idea

otherwise..... yesterday i saw pink water lilies for the first time this year and they are SUPER pink, like really bright pink and that's so rare here (they are usually soft pink) and they are STUNNING. also the strawberry roots i bought a while ago? well only 2 out of 5 came up and they had to fight hard but now 1 of them is getting flowers which means strawberries are coming and i can not be more proud, i'm so happy and i hope the other one will follow, but even if it doesn't im still proud that 1 of them is getting strawberries, it's so hard to let them grow from roots in stead of plants and it was my first time trying that.

how do you all like WWC 2019 so far? i'm so excited for the knock-out matches
who are you guys rooting for apart from your own country if they are still in? ♥

Omg I’m so sorry. The medicines and all the sickness sounds horrible! I also know that feeling when it’s not really the physical pain (although of course that’s awful too) but the mental fatigue that gets to you, because at least in theory the physical pain will ebb and flow but the mental exhaustion and uncertainty can get to me in a very different way. I really hope you feel better soon! Cyber hugs.

I made bulgogi for the nieces and nephew last night and it was a hit. My nephew keeps pointing at foreign languages (mostly Japanese) and asking me what they are and if I can read them. Lol. I can recognize a lot of languages but I'm not a genius.

Now that I have a plan for quitting my terrible job, every day that I have to go in is even more of a drag than before. I have to last until mid august.
shalottlady07 22nd-Jun-2019 03:49 am (UTC)
YUM. I love bulgogi. Your nephew sounds really funny.
You can do it!!!

Hello all. I’m having a shitty week. Fell and got a concussion this week (literally landed on my head, passed out for who knows how long), and now that I postponed meeting a friend because of this they’re making me feel like shit! What a lovely reaction... I’m also still in job searching inferno and had a few interviews this week, in this state. They didn’t go well and there’s an excuse but it just makes me feel worse.

At the very least the weather is nice and the school holidays started so my commute isnt as insanely crowded as usual. Bright side!

Hope everyone else is having a better time and week!

gathyou 21st-Jun-2019 12:56 pm (UTC)
You got a concussion and your friend is pissed at you delaying a meeting? that's shitty :( I hope they realize it and apologize soon.

Getting interviews is already a good sign! it means your profile is interesting, and that you have experience to learn from and do even better next time :) Do you need any advice?
Good luck <3
dior_chic 21st-Jun-2019 11:56 am (UTC)
I know summer officially starts today in the northern hemisphere, but I know for most Chicago people (I’m assuming most people in general) count June 1st/early June as summer and uggh it’s been shitty. Either no sun, random rain, or yesterday where it was like 55 degrees. July better pick up because I’m already losing hope :/

(I say this as the sun is out now and it’s nice out lmao, just saying if it was like this throughout the month that would’ve been nice)

Edited at 2019-06-21 12:39 pm (UTC)
shalottlady07 22nd-Jun-2019 03:53 am (UTC)
Not from Chicago, but saaaaaame. So much rain and grayness. I wake up at like 10am on the weekend and it feels like 5pm cause it’s so dark.
SUN PLEASE (but not heat/humidity, just sun).

1. So the Red Velvet mini - sans Zim-zala-mess - has been on repeat for me and I'm curious what other song people would have as the title instead? Bing Bing is my favorite and I'd love to see it live but would Parade be better? Thematically a festival can begin with a parade and it does well incorporating carnival sounds within its music to thematically tie in with the mini as well.

2. Said so in my mini post but while you cannot rightly compare RV to f(x) due to them being different kinds of groups - RV is much more vocal forward than everyone in f(x) sans Luna could ever be - I do think you can both prefer RV to f(x) without downing one over the other and at least acknowledge that f(x) was where they tested a quirky musical style that they adapted for RV.

2a. f(x) is something people feel protective over because the girls were screwed over and while I know people are tired of hearing that it doesn't negate its truth.

3. Chungha!!!!!!! There's something very fresh & powerful to me with her placing her title track last on the mini and I'm just SUPER PUMPED to hear it all.
gathyou 21st-Jun-2019 01:27 pm (UTC)
Hahaha same, I've been replaying everything except Zimzalabim non stop. The songs all flow so well together, with highs and lows. I love Bing Bing! The instrumental in the verses gets me so hyped.
Parade would be the most "natural" pick for me out of all the bsides, it's bright like their usual summer concepts, but with interesting quirky details (like the carnival sounds you mention!!!) to fit Red Velvet's experimental style.

I think Red Velvet and f(x) are always going to be put against one another because of Red Velvet debuting when SM started ruining f(x), as well as the quirky, experimental sides... Until Red Velvet gets put against the newest SM girl group. Which really pains me - why do we always have to put girls against each other?
If I really had to compare, for me, Red Velvet are a good mix of f(x)'s musical genres experimentations and quirky style with SNSD's focus on harmonies and inclinaison for pop, with RnB influences spread on top. Which makes them stand as their own as Red Velvet an no one else. Lol I know I'm over the top about kpop XD In the end, all three groups bring something different to the table, they can't be better than one another - it's all about tastes.

i don't think i've been to the library at all this year... i gotta fix that when i get home from my trip.

this weather's got me boiling! florida went straight to summer before spring started. we had storms every night lately, but now it's gonna be dry for a few days. our dew points have been in the upper 70s (fahrenheit), which makes the air feel miserable.

my labs for my rheumatologist got posted on tuesday, and while most of the stuff was normal, my ANA homogenous pattern came back as "positive abnormal". homogenous pattern is usually an indication that someone might have SLE, and knowing that this is like the 3rd time it's come back as positive for me... i'm not thrilled, lol. but until she runs additional labs, i won't really know if i've got it for sure or not. :/

i decided to try amazon music for 30 days since i have a lot of (western) albums to catch up on. so far i've been listening to gary clark jr.'s newest and it's pretty great! now i have to add the new two door cinema club to my list, lol.

and speaking of great albums, i want to plug sakanaction since they just released a new one. well worth the 6 year wait.

if you're into more chill tracks, "nylon no ito" is excellent.
shalottlady07 22nd-Jun-2019 03:58 am (UTC)
Ooooo where’s your trip??
I’m sorry about your test results. Sending positive vibes~
Omg there’s a new two door cinema club album?? I saw them a few years ago and they were great.

Jo Si Sub has pulled me into Terius. He has such an interesting face. I should be swimming, but ugh why when I can watch a man be confuzzled by twins? And I should go finish my work, because I'm traveling next week, but again, Jo Si Sub.

Also, if people want to spread some gossip/anecdotes/body shots of SF9/Ateez I wouldn't be mad. I'm shameless that way.

hi, i hope everyone is well 💖

there's been quite some chaos at my job with people being fired and our department being possibly the next target (even though they claim we're safe but we're not stupid lol). funny enough i'm not that stressed out about it since it's not really my dream job (but i should be worried cause you know my income depends on it lol).

has anyone listened to "the shrink next door"?? what kind of a wild story was that!
shalottlady07 22nd-Jun-2019 03:59 am (UTC)
Oh nooooo! I hope it works out however you want, whether it’s to stay or use it as an opportunity for smthg better.
benihime99 21st-Jun-2019 06:20 pm (UTC)

Elaborate please. What kind of feels? And, level of melodramaticness?
