The Best Song in 2014

I listened to loads of songs in 2014… I listened to the whole album of Taylor Swift which was sensational. One Direction’s album was also out, therefore I listened to all of them! But the best song and the most repeated song is… ‘Waves’ by Mr.Probz and ‘All of Me” by John Legend. ‘Waves’ was stuck in my head the whole summer for about 3 months! I listened to that song at least once a day. I repeated singing ‘Waves’ with Zara when I visited Sweden<3 XD We sang along to the radio and I still remember Julia (Zara’s sister) and My sister were annoyed by us because we kept singing:P. Not only Mr.Probz but also John Legend’s song was legendary (two thumbs up for it!!). Beyonce rocked my days in the end of 2014 (7/11 is my fav songXD)!!

My favorite song

Currently, I am listening to ‘Ah Yeah’ by Robert Glasper feat. Musique Soulchildren and Chrisette Michele. Usually I listen to songs that are fast tempos or songs that make me hyper, but this song is exceptional. The mood is very unique and the voice is calming me down, especially when i am in chaotic situation or nervous mood i often listen to this song.

I think beauty’s overrated
Cuz that’s something anyone can be
Attraction now that’s something different, Uh huh
And thankfully you’re both to me
Cuz I’ve learned in this life
You’ve gotta be with someone you like
If you think that we’ve got what it takes to go the distance
I can tell you now
Ah yeah x3
Ah yeahx3
Ah yeahx3
Ah yeahx3
Your’e sweet and you see through me
You let me be free
im woman im woman
the only one i’ll be
the only one you’ll ever need
and you’re the very same for me
Cuz I’ve learned in this life
You’ve gotta be with someone you like
If you think that we’ve got what it takes to go the distance
I can tell you now
Ah yeah x3
Ah yeahx3
Ah yeahx3
Ah yeahx3
things can get so real in love
you gotta know exactly how you feel in love
cause if you dont then maybe you’ll find love
could be all in your mind love…<3

Winter holiday<3

2k14 winter vacation to Switzerland was one of the most fascinating and awesome trip i ever had. To end the year 2014 in a very cold country, my aunt and i decided to go to Switzerland 3 days before the flight. After packing my bag with warm and thick clothes and hoodies, I already landed in Zurich, Switzerland.  Coldness overwhelmed me, and my aunt and I were shivering. Because WE ARE FROM U.A.E, where the the temperature never drops below 15 celsius degree..i think..?!!  However, the trip went amazing!! I made loads of weird and unforgettable moments with my aunt. I even went skiing and went on a 8 hours of Glacier Express Train that  was from Zermatt to Saint Moritz! I still can visualize the view from the train…I want to go back!!

Interstellar

I watched a movie call “Interstellar” with my aunt during the national holiday. The theatre was empty like a hunted house. My aunt and I decided to watch ‘interstellar’, because the movie is such a big issue in Korea, it’s like a must-watch movie of the year. The movie was about 3 hours long, and some scenes took unnecessarily long. In the beginning was just really boring and made my aunt to fall asleep… :P. But, it doesn’t mean that the movie was bad idea to watch. In my opinion, the expository, and rising action were about an hour and half and that made some people very boring. Also, I suggest this movie for people who are interested in astronomy, or about planets. The movie will be more fascinating if you have some knowledges about the planets, galaxies,and  general theory of relativity and so on. The movie was very hard to decipher and understand the concept and plot. It also shows the theme of family and love. Because the main character,Cooper, is leaving his children in the earth and he flies to another planet where humans can survive and dwell. He overcomes the love of family and finds the planet with the help from his daughter,Murph. The climax was tantalising, although i had no idea what was going on. According to the interviews of the director, the movie were actually filmed and tried not to use the computer graphics. That made the movie very phisically natural and looked real. It also has lesson. In the end of the movie, characters say that the future depends on the generations, which means people have the answers to solve the problems and have a key for the better future. My favourite quote from the movie is “We will find a way. We always have.”

Roald Dahl

These days I am reading “The Umbrella Man” by Roald Dahl. It is the collection of the short stories of Dahl. When i was young, I used to read lots of his books, such as ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’, ‘Matilda’, ‘James and the giant peach’, ‘The witches’, ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, and so on…  To be honest, I’m not a big fan of reading a book, but i read those books with my sister and my mom. I even watched the movies of ‘Matilda’ and ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’. However, ‘The Umbrella man’ is different than the other full stories. It’s 9 pages and it has exposition, rising actions, climax, falling actions and the resolutions. In the beginning, the young protagonist and her mom are in London, and all of a sudden the weather gets worse and starts to rain. An old strange man comes to them and sell the umbrella with 20 pounds. Since the girl and her mom were desperate to avoid from the heavy rain, they paid 20 pounds and got the silk umbrella with a good quality. Her mom was suspicious with the man, so they decided to follow after him and spotted him entering the pub. Actually, the man said he needed 20 pound for the taxi fee to go home, instead he goes to the pub and drinks  a glass of whisky. When he exits, he takes the new umbrella of unknown person and goes back to the big street and tries to sell the umbrella again and earn money. He must earn loads of money in a rainy day. However, in my opinion the ending was little bit disappointment, because i expected a bit higher to be interesting or thrilling but it just ended like that. Next time, I want to read other books of him that I have not read. Also, in the future I will definitely my children or kids to read his books!

Iphone 6

OH.MY.GOD

When i held the iphone6 in my hand, I trembled my fingers as if the phone was vibrating, and my palm was sweating. I could not believe that the Gold Iphone 6 is mine! the shape and every inch or cm of the angle were on point like perfect. The color is gorgeous. Right now, i am exaggerating because Iphone is first time for me. Using the Iphone was a life achievement for me, and all of a sudden my mom allowed me to buy it. What a beautiful day!?! first i thought my mom was pranking me or i was very sure there is something behind her plan. However, she thought i really need a proper phone, not a minuscule and nonfunctioning NOKIA. I was using LG G2 and the screen was all shattered because i dropped it several times and the phone had no cover. Since then, i used my aunt’s previous phone which is Nokia and it barely works (It keeps turn off by itself every 10 minutes) Texting and calling was the only thing i could do. Now my beautiful iPhone is in my hand; I will try to use for a long time with no breaking^^

Thinking about future…

Okay, whenever i think about my future, i am totally not ready at all. I am getting older and older; the future is approaching closer and closer. To be honest, i have not decided what i am going to be and study in the future. I should have my life plan by now, but id rather be lost in the big world and hopefully marry a prince charming X’D and live happily ever after…(JOKE!! that sounds very cheesy and I’m joking! LOL) Me, Soojin Choi, a Korean girl who studies in United Arab Emirates, and the youngest in typical Korean family, with nothing special talents or things, having a normal, humdrum student life has no idea what I am going to do.. The reason why I still study in here and not going back to Korea unlike other Korean students is that.. I want to make my parents to be proud of me. In Korea, we were just a small family and just hated my life when i reached puberty (at the age of 11 or 12, but 13 and 14 in korean age). I caused a huge problem to my family and i regret so much until now.. Since then, I wanted to avoid my life, but my father gave me a chance to start my 2nd life in another country and I chose here! I wanted to show them a good behaviour and side of myself in a reply, like I wanted to prove that Im adapting very well with no troubles. I always tried my best in every thing. My parents had a hard time and now my goal is to make them feel proud of their daughters wherever they go, also among their friends I hope they can talk about their naughty but changed daughters proudly. However, I am still seeking the way to achieve my goal. Because of these reasons, I am worrying the future…

ps. Hopefully, when i read this blog by any chance in the future, I hope I am who I wanted to be 😉
