"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

Now Playing: Drops of Jupiter (Cover) by Taylor Swift (can you imagine no first chance freeze-dried romance, five hour conversations, the best soy latte you will ever have and...me)

I've really missed my blog. 

If you haven't noticed already, I usually blog in different shades of pissed off. I do this for your benefit, really, because in real life when I'm angry I just look like an agitated chipmunk and my writing when I'm mad takes on a similarly entertaining tone. My blog is good stress relief. 

Things have been good here, in Korea, but sometimes it gets hard. I've never been very good with people, or language barriers, so a place with lots of people and a language barrier can get quite stressful for me. Truth be told, the reason why I have pushed myself to get so good at English is because I get very frustrated when people don't understand me, and so I've devoted a large part of my life to learning how to articulate myself. And, of course that all goes out the window when I'm trying to communicate in a language that I kind of know but, ya know, isn't as good as my English. I also need to spend a lot of time alone, which, you know, some people take that the wrong way. 

So it's been a little stressful.

And now I don't really know how to explain the multitude of things that have been swirling my head whilst I've been MIA. It's like that, isn't it?

Yes, I do notice that you blog in different shades of pissed off.

So I try to comment in complementary shades.

Can see the chipmunky resemblance...

Ah, the crowds and how they appear to connect up and create exclusives. Reading beyond the headlines and the info.

Catching up with "Never grow up: thirteen year old me".
