Today is the day that Sunggyu heads to the military… When I heard the news of his enlistment, I was shocked and sad how the time has come where one of the members of INFINITE would enlist. To be honest, I didn’t think the news would hit me hard, but it can’t be helped because I’ve been an INSPIRIT since 2011. Time flies by so fast because he is now 30 years old and not 23!

I’m going to miss him so much and I wish him all the best in the military… Stay healthy and comeback safely!! I look forward to seeing you again in 2020! ❤️

#Remember0416

4 years ago, a ferry carrying 476 people sank en route to Jeju in South Korea. A total of 304 lives were lost that day, mostly students from Danwon High School.

It’s saddening how an incident like this happened, especially the crew’s failure to evacuate the passengers. I pray that nothing like this ever happens again because losing a child has to be worst thing to happen for a parent. My heart goes out to those affected by the Sewol Ferry Disaster.

 

Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl Champions!!!

This post is long overdue, but who cares… EAGLES WON THE SUPER BOWL AGAINST THE PATRIOTS!! As a longtime fan, I was so happy to see my team win and how they defied all odds. The entire game had me on the edge of my seat and it was truly a memorable game to watch. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick Foles on being Super Bowl MVP. Hearing his story of his struggles in the NFL and wanting to quit at one point is so inspiring.

Eagles had their parade on Thursday, which I was pretty bummed about not attending. However, I was able to live stream it at work, so it was nice to witness the parade and excitement with the fans and team.

Congrats Eagles!! Fly Eagles Fly!

Hello 2018.

Goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018!!! Here’s hoping for a great year.

To recap on 2017, it was a pretty good year. If I had to rate it on a grading scale, it’s around a B. Since it was the Year of the Rooster, I was a bit worried that nothing would come out of it, but it didn’t let me down. I quit my part-time job that I got while finishing my last year of undergrad and managed to get a job within my career field, which I’m still happy about. Even though I’m figuring out what exactly I want to do in non-profit, it’s rewarding to be part of an organization that not only cares about the youth and families we serve, but the staff. To be honest, I had a hard time adjusting at my new job for the first few weeks because I just came out of a small company, but my co-workers have been kind and welcoming since I started.

I hardly make New Year Resolutions, but my goal for 2018 is to focus on the good in life. I recently bought Moorea Seal’s The 52 Lists Project: A Year of Weekly Journaling Inspiration from Amazon and I’m so excited to start filling up the pages! My hopes for 2018 are to take better care of myself, travel to Germany to visit my cousin, and get my own apartment in the city. Let’s see if I can manage to accomplish these by the end of 2018…

INFINITE is back with a new album!! I’m so happy to hear new music from them after a year. My boys did so well!

RIP Jonghyun

As I am writing right now, I’m trying to grasp Jonghyun’s final words that was posted on Instagram by Dear Cloud’s Nine9. His pain and struggles with depression… My heart hurts reading his thoughts and it hit close to home.

When I heard news of Jonghyun’s passing this morning, I thought it was a sick joke. I was shocked and in disbelief that this would happen, but with the stigma of mental illness in Korea, it saddens me how this issue isn’t taken seriously.

Coming from a person who struggled from depression in my teens and young adulthood, it’s a never-ending battle. I can’t stress how important it is to talk to someone whether it’s a friend or loved one. I’ve always been that type who bottled up my feelings out of fear of being a nuisance to people. It wasn’t until I opened to a friend that I realized I wasn’t alone and there is a person willing to lend a listening ear. If I can give some piece of advice to anyone struggling with depression: It gets better. Know your current situation won’t last forever. Seek help.

May your soul rest in peace Jonghyun. You’ve worked hard.

“Never Give Up, Great Things Take Time”

After 11 months of job searching (9 months post-grad) and going for interviews that ended up going nowhere, I have accepted a full-time position at a non-profit organization that serves at-risk youth and families!!!

Regarding advice I would give to post-grads looking for jobs: Positivity and Patience. I suggest getting help from your university’s career services because they can help you fix your resume and offer you guidance on your job search. I also highly suggest reading Robin Ryan’s 60 Seconds and You’re Hired! It helped me prepare for interviews regarding questions. True story: I scored two job offers within a month from reading this book.

I have been fortunate enough to keep my part-time job since last September while finishing up my last year of college, so it has helped keep myself busy and not suffer through post-grad depression. I do admit working part-time was a bit time-consuming at times from spending more time applying for jobs, but I wouldn’t change anything.

I’m so thankful to pursue a career field that I’m passionate about and look forward to the next steps of my career. God is good!

 

I stumbled upon this from Cosmopolitan’s Snapchat last month in regards to my horoscope and it surprisingly came true!! Both Love and Work!

Regarding news of Hoya’s withdrawal from INFINITE, I’ll let this picture speak for itself…

**EDIT 08/30**

So it’s been a day since the news came out that Hoya is no longer a member of INFINITE… Strangely enough, I had a feeling that he was going to be the one to leave.

Considering I watched them grow as a group since 2011, INFINITE won’t be the same without Hoya. I never once thought INFINITE would be going through this and it’s sad knowing it happened. Regardless of how sad I am, I wish Hoya all the best and will support him in his future endeavors. As for INFINITE, I will continue to show love and support for them. Today, I read an article that said the 6 of them renewed their contracts to “protect INFINITE.” It’s bittersweet knowing they want to continue to promote as INFINITE for their fans and I can’t thank them enough. 인피니트 사랑해 ❤️
