The Fun of Personality Tests

Hey everyone,

How is it going? Hopefully well. Things here are going okay. Two exams tomorrow so stress is rather high but it will be over soon. Just got to push though. Now on to the surprising news; this post actually has a theme. I know, right, it is a rare thing but this time, I actually have something to talk about.

So, earlier today I retook the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator just for a little bit of fun. I was reading a post on BTS Amino about the personalities of the members who recently took the test. I was interested to see if I shared one of the 16 personalities with any of the members and I couldn’t remember my past results. Unfortunately, I don’t but it was worth the look.

On to the results…. Drumroll, please…… I am INFJ which is Advocate. Apparently less than 1% of the population have this. I read through the profile, and it is rather accurate. It always interests me how close these sorts of things are.

About Advocate personalities

“Advocates tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, but while people with this personality type can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be be rescued at all.”

A few examples include Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, and for anyone who is a fan of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow. Pretty proud of those, especially MLK.

One of my favourite parts of the profile is: ‘Advocates have strong beliefs and take the actions that they do not because they are trying to advance themselves, but because they are trying to advance an idea that they truly believe will make the world a better place.’

I really enjoy taking personality tests and I believe that is is extremely accurate. It is fascinating to learn these sorts of things about you.

I am going to go study now so I will see you on the flip side.

Rambling: Time Zones, Exams, K-POP

Good morning, good afternoon, good night.

I find time zones fascinating and annoying at the same time. One of my best friends lives in the USA and I am in Australia, so when I am available to talk, he is heading to bed. It is quite frustrating.

I actually have no idea where this post is headed. I had my first of 6 Year 11 ATAR exams today and my brain is fried. It was English so I literally just had to write for 3 hours straight. I think (well, my accurately, hope) that I did okay. We will find out in a couple of weeks. I have Don’t Wanna Cry by SEVENTEEN on in the background so I am not really thinking about my exam that I have tomorrow.

For me the first exam is always the worst. I panic and freak out because I don’t really know what to expect. I think I will be a bit more composed tomorrow morning than I was today. The good think about these exams is that I get a lot of time off school. I had all of yesterday, this afternoon, the rest of the day after the morning exam, and two days next week. So really, I will only have one proper day of school in two weeks. It is reasonable compensation for having to sit through 6 3-hour long exams.

On to other news, BTS’s MV for “Not Today” has surpassed 100 Million views! Congrats! Next job is “Spring Day”. As I enjoy both songs, this is welcome news to my ears. And has anyone listened/watched ASTRO’s new song “Baby”? I love it! I am also anticipating Pentagon’s comeback in a few days. So much new music to listen to.

So, I think I am going to stop now while I can. This post had no real theme. I guess that is what happens when you just click ‘write’.

I will see you soon.

Back from Hiatus

Been absent for a while… School has been hectic. I have two exams this week, then four the week after. I have had to do so much prep that it is starting to drive me insane. Yesterday, I just had to get out of the house so I went on a walk. I ended up at the lake a couple of kilometers from my house. It is where I tend to end up so it has, by default, become my ‘thinking place’. It is a beautiful place, so I will post a picture with this entry. For me, it is the perfect place just to think and calm down. To take a step back and appreciate the things we take for granted.

If you have read my previous posts, then you would be aware that I listen to a lot of Kpop music. Yep, still doing that. A few weeks ago, my Dad asked why I listened to it when I didn’t know what they were saying. I replied with I have no idea what half the songs on the radio are saying so what is the difference? For me, ‘I Need U’ by BTS is the perfect song for when I am thinking about what the hell I am doing with my life. Whenever I listen to it, the MV is running through my head, and it causes me to think if I am content with my life. It was a song that was played while I was sitting at the lake.

I am sorry to myself that I let it get to two and a half months between posts. I struggle to hold a hobby for more than a few weeks and this is one of them. I will try to be more consistent and to just write rather than post for just the sake of it. I will rambling and possibly at times not make a whole lot of sense, but I will continue to write. I don’t really mind if no one reads or takes in anything I say because this is for me rather than them. My goal in life is to learn and teach so anyone that comes along for the ride is welcome to join.

Probably should stop procrastinating now and get back to studying.

I hope you are having a wonderful day.

The Addiction That is K-Pop


When my friend first introduced me to a popular K-Pop group, BTS, I had no way for foreseening the hold that it would have on my life. 


It started with BTS. Gorgeous Jungkook, sweet Jimin, sassy Suga, princess Jin, cheeky V, and the leader Rap Monster. I was drawn in through their amazingly tight choreography and their resonating lyrics. 


Next came SEVENTEEN. 11 members, 3 units, come together as 1 team (17). At first I was surprised with the sheer number of the group. Having not much experience with K-Pop, I wasn’t used to the group sizes. Mingyu… 💜. 


Then followed Ailee. The beautiful pop diva. The American-born singer reminds me of Jessica Mauboy and Jordan Sparks. I love her power and sassy lyrics with ‘I Will Show You’ rivalling Taylor Swift’s break up songs. 


Finally came EXO. Learning their names was the easiest of all the groups. The first song I heard was Monster. There was something about Chanyeol that forced me to watch hour after hour of EXO videos. 

The sad thing about being an Aussie K-Pop fan is the language barrier. BTS released a new video 11pm last night and unfortunately when I tried to watch it at 11:30pm I couldn’t understand what Kookie (Jungkook) was saying. However, I know that subtitles will soon be at my rescue thanks to some amazing people. 

I would recommend all of these idols to people who are interested in K-Pop or want to try something new. I am loving it and maybe you will too.
