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.

Forever Young

16, eh? This is the first time that a birthday has actually changed me or made me feel older. In the 4 days since my birthday, I have got my L’s. It was at this moment that I noticed how fast my childhood was slipping away from me. I have always been more sensitive to most about these kind of things but this suprised me. I mean, driving a car is not something a child does. It is an adult activity; something kids dream about for their first 16 years.

Most teenagers don’t realise how lucky we have it. We don’t pay rent, we have a reliable routine, we are forced to see our friends everyday; our crushes everyday (unless you’re like me and picks someone who goes and moves 3 hours away from you), we have no real responsibilities. Sure, getting out of school and moving on to more exciting projects is fun and enjoyable, but is it all really that bad? 

Now, I am not saying that I love school and want to stay there (as a student), or that I want to live with my parents forever. I am just saying that being a teenager is nice. To be young and healthy, and to afford to be a little careless is something that I wish I could experience forever. I hope that when I am an adult that I am able to connect with myself like I do at 16. I want to be able to remember my childhood and to recreate those feelings.

 To be completely honest, I am scared about the next stage of my life. Even though I am what I want to do, executing it is the part that scares me. Everything is going to change. My friends are all planning to attend different universities, I will move out of home, I will get a job and have to solely depend on myself. The next 18 months are going to fly by so quickly that I’m not sure if I am going to be able to keep up.

Stupid Emotions

I was in a reasonable mood last night. This morning… not so much. You know how when something happens and your mood just flips? Or when one person just seems to have this effect on you that you can’t control? I hate it, but I can’t help it. I don’t know whether it is feelings or lust or just attachment. It always happens just when I have gotten used to the fact that things are done and I have moved past it. Why can’t things just stay in the past?
