20130128: kipper

Let me not dine on fish and wine
and call it so a meal divine.
Allow me instead to eat in bed
kipper snacks on crusty bread.
The salty, smokey, fishy stink
in gurgling gut from where they sink,
which I take as a healthy sign
when I send my compliments down the line.

To the list of other pieces inspired by random words.

Femininity: 공효진 & 신민아

공효진 and 신민아 always exude effortless charm and beauty.
I wish I were as tall as they are.

They are also co-stars of one of my favorite movies 지금, 이대로가 좋아요.

Hello, hello, 2013!

My 2012 ended with a bang, quite literally, and now it's 2013.

I wanted 2012 to be a year in which I changed my point of view. I wanted 2012 to be a year where I spent it feeling like an adult, and it wasn't me so much that made it so, but it was what was happening around me. I honestly can't think of myself as much else than an adult at this point.

Working from home has been such a blessing. Not having co-workers and not having to commute has changed everything. Not being forced to interact with people I don't want to has made me into a much more relaxed person. I always thought being irritatingly pessimistic was just my nature, but ever since I started working from home I have had very little to complain about.

Also, it might be counter-intuitive, but being alone has made me more out-going. Not having my energy drained from me has allowed me to invest it into quality time with the people I want to. In 2012 spent time with my friends and family, and I also met a fair number of new people.

It only seems natural at this point to make my goal or focus of 2013 be about interpersonal relationships. I want to make a conscious effort to be good to people. I want to seek out, enjoy, and appreciate the company of those people that are good to me. I want to see myself grow and flourish as an emotional being.

So I guess that's what I want to look forward to in 2013, and as always I wish for peace, love, and prosperity in the new year.
