Fun :D What are your fave TWICE ships? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMfZ2IZw1K8

i think it's safe to say i've achieved ot9 status with twice, which means no bias and no preferred ships. which ALSO means that i immediately adopt any ship that people say are "tragic"/"dead" i.e. mimo, and according to this vid i guess i'll have to start looking into satzu too xD
that being said, namo has been growing on me lately, and i also am very soft for soft ships, so the oldest/youngest pairings of any group (natzu yes please) or just ones where one is quietly taking care of the other -- so a lot of mina ships because usually either someone is taking care of her (minayeon, misana) or she's being a very cute responsible unnie (michaeng, mitzu). also jihyo needs more love so i pay more attention to any ship that has her involved now too xD YOU SEE HOW HARD THIS IS FOR ME i remember when i was barely into twice and was like "i like sana because friend's bias and mina because i wanna be her friend so i guess i ship misana?" AND THAT WAS IT

You are not updating the story. Does that mean we will get 2 parts tomorrow about the missing Sooyoung? I'm kidding. Take your time xD and hope you are well!

yeah i was busier than usual these last couple of days. i'm trying to write something daily, but if i miss a day or two here and there, it shouldn't be cause for too much worry haha. and more parts of "hurricane" are coming up eventually!

I think this echos a lot of what i've concluded about love, platonic or otherwise. reflecting on the close relationships i have had in the past, as well as the ones i have now, they all revolve around something beyond wanting the other person to be happy -- because to be quite honest, there are very few people i know personally whom i actually do not wish the best for. but it's the level of trust i place in them and they place in me that makes the difference -- a trust the video describes as holding someone gently. which i think is important, because if you love someone, you won't be afraid to let them out of your sight, since you already trust that you'll meet again, so why worry?

i have a friend who likes to guilt-trip everytime i dont conform to his wishes... idk what to do w him, but he stresses me out

i'm of the opinion that friends shouldn't stress you out like that. if he's a person you care about maintaining a relationship with, then I would suggest talking to him about it and letting him know that it's not cool -- there might be some friction at first and it might be awkward for a while, but a friendship is mutual, so it should definitely not be one person taking while the other only gives.

I have a friend in an unhealthy relationship and I don't know how to help her. She really wants to make the relationship work, but whenever I've been seeing her, she's crying or just finished crying and a lot of me inside dies.

Sorry to hear that :( i know it can be frustrating and heartbreaking to watch the people you care about suffer, but humans are unfortunately complicated when it comes to emotions and attachments, so it's hard to decide on what's the "best" course of action to take or to offer as advice, especially when every option leaves at least one person hurting. I guess if I were in a similar situation, I'd support her as best as possible, no matter what decisions she ends up making, and step in if it gets to the point where someone falls in serious danger (how serious is "serious"? depends on the situation and the people involved, so you'll have to make the call).

Now Missing You is one of my favourites! I like their banter. What song it's inspired from?

i like writing it :D felt like i needed a break from all the deeper, more thought-heavy stuff, so no song behind this one -- it's actually inspired by my own roommate experiences XD

yes, we are very much a digitized group of individuals, but i think this video is speaking a bit too much from the perspective of a previous generation looking down and snorting, waving everything aside with an idle "psh, kids these days. when i was your age i had to walk up a mountain and fight a lion every morning just to get breakfast".
remember that the job market and general society is adjusting accordingly with the flow of technological development. millennials might need more patience than usual, actually, since the internet has made it so easy for employers to choose candidates from all across the country, for example. my friends trying to find jobs right now have dealt with constant rejections even as the companies they apply to are "instantly gratified" by the endless supply of resumes they have to choose from. so is "job satisfaction" really linked to LACK of patience?
that's not to say that we aren't spoiled because of technology. but every story has multiple sides, so i'm always wary of someone trying to boil down such a complex problem into a two-minute video.

if people actually believe this over the fact that global warming is real and caused mainly by man-made emissions of greenhouse gases...i'm not sure what else there is to say
While I doubt that HAARP can actually influence the jet streams (which are located in a different layer of the atmosphere than the layer HAARP actually interacts with), geoengineering is indeed real -- for example, scientists have tried to induce rain before by seeding clouds with silver iodide and other compounds. The idea was to make water droplets condense on those particles and eventually drop as rain, even if the cloud wasn't going to produce precipitation originally. This had limited success, but is a much more real and logical attempt at weather modification

"Help without expecting something in return." What are your thoughts about this? And what can you say about people who expect some kind of "payment" in the future bcos they helped u now?

It seems to me that it's hard for humans in general to not think in "transactions" when we interact with each other -- back in the days without currency, we still exchanged goods and services of equivalent value to obtain what we wanted. And even concepts such as "friendship" or "marriage" revolve around being "mutual" and making "compromises" between the involved parties. There's also probably a cultural aspect -- my parents, at least, seem to have a pretty staunch policy on "owing" others, whether it's just giving gifts or taking turns with the neighbors to pick up all the kids after school or "this family invited us over for dinner so we should invite them this time".
So in the simplest terms, I think it's actually natural to have the innate expectation that since you were nice to someone, they will be nice to you later. But how MUCH "niceness" is expected is when some people can start to take advantage of the situation, and then lines start to blur...

Congratulation for making it to 250!! 116 to go and thanks for keep continuing your wonderful free-forms <3

aw thank you TT it's 114 now -- i can in theory finish before the year ends, but i'd rather not make that an official goal because we all know how well that worked the first time

i hate expectations :3 like when people tell me their expectations of me, i tend to distance myself away from them. u can say i'm allergic to expectations lol why do people even expect something from someone? pls enlighten me on this

i guess they come to expect certain things from you either because that's how they interpret your personality, or because they think you owe them something for whatever reason. For example, my friends would expect me to make embarrassing sounds if they show me a cute otter video, and they would also expect me to pay them back if one of them covers the kbbq bill after we'd agreed to split it. I suppose what you meant by "expectations" might lean towards the second situation more, but I think the first is also quite applicable in general and can also sometimes result in feeling pressured to behave a certain way

True or False - Red Velvet is the most versatile girl group in KPOP today?

i'm not sure what versatile means in this context anymore xD i mean, every girl group i've seen has a wide range of talents (singing, dancing, rapping) with maybe a quirk or two thrown in. Many can pull of multiple concepts, from cutesy to badass to holy-crap-that's-attractive-on-multiple-illegal-levels. Which is probably why I end up paying attention to groups I can resonate with, usually by how genuine they seem to me and how those personalities mesh with my own, even if it's all through the cameras.
