Falling In Love

June 2 2012
Brr. Why is it so cold early in the morning? I can barely reach up and write in my diary, which is why I will just type it in my phone starting this day. Kekekeke - Okay, let us go back to the introductions...
Dear S4 today is the 7th day after passing as a trainee at SM Entertainment. i must admit, it was a hell out of a competition out there. Everyone was just so competitive and amazing, to the point that I almost lose hope on passing the auditions. Then, after that fateful day of my casting, a quick reply was sent to my email. I passed the audition! YES! I jumped for joy that day and hugged my mom (nearly crushing her) Two days after, my trainee days started and I was asked to go to the company for a brief orientation. I was soooo excited to go inside SM, not to train *I am being honest here S4* but of course, to see the artists kekekeke. The first group I saw was TVXQ. Yunho and Changmin were both dazzling (and tall I must say) they were kind enough to pay attention to us and gave us some words of encouragement afterwards. We were toured inside the building and showed us our respective training rooms.
Today will be our senior assignments. It's a routine wherein we will be assigned into different groups (seniors) to train with them. Super Junior? Girls Generation? Who? I don't know too kekekeke. However, I wish it will the pretty boys, EXO Oh well, please anticipate my next post. I better get ready now or I might be late for training. :/ Bye s4!

In Rae stood up and unwillingly prepared for training. She packed up her things and made sure that she didn’t forget anything. "Extra shirt, check. Water, check. Towel, check. Gum, ahh…check. Oppa's might ask me for a gum. Kekekeke-" She laughed as she zips her bag and went out of the room. "Bye honey." Her mom kissed her in the cheeks as she sends her outside the house. "Bye mom, love you." Her mom waved her hand in return.

She was dressed in a simple red hoodie, black harem pants, cap, and chucks. All with the same color. If you were to describe her, it would be like this: sexy figure underneath boy clothing and a pretty face hidden with a cap. She was popular at school, but because of her tsundere attitude, it…...

Once Upon a Time

...Some things about fairy tales we know to be true. They begin with "once upon a time." And they end with "happily ever after." And somewhere in middle the prince rescues the damsel in distress or as we know the princess. Of course, this is not actually the case. Many fairytales omit these essential words. But few fairytales in the Western traditions fail to have a beautiful, passive maiden rescued by a vibrant man, usually her superior in either social rank or in moral standing. So many questions have been asked. But my question is: why is it that the prince always saves the princess, why doesn’t the princess ever save the prince? In fairytales, one of the common motifs used is the allocation of gender roles to the characters. Females are usually seen as feminine, submissive, weak and dependent upon the stronger males. They usually act as caregivers, enhancing the gender role stereotype which suggests that women should be stationed “behind the scene”. The males in fairytales, on the other hand, are portrayed as masculine, authoritative and are usually introduced as heroes saving the female protagonists. Fairytales are an important socializing agent accompanying young children in their childhood years. Being consistently exposed to such motifs, they are likely to view such gender role ideologies as cultural norms and subconsciously adhere to it. When it comes to the princesses there are only three princesses out of eight who actually save someone else’s life and puts......

Once Were Warriors Report

...Once Were Warriors Report by Sean Collier Once Were Warriors had a different reception internationally towards the didactic message of the violence in the film. Once Were Warriors directed by Lee Tamahori grossed over $6 million in New Zealand passing Jurassic Park on the New Zealand Box Office. New Zealanders praised the film with most reviews receiving a high rating. When opened internationally it grossed over $2 million with reviews also achieving a high rating. Although most international reviews fail to see the message from the violence compared to local reviews, they seem to view the violence as nauseating and unnecessary while New Zealand sees it as strong message to the public. Strong examples of this are Mark Tierney, Lizzie Francke and David Stratton from New Zealand, and Kenneth Turan from America who had a strong opinion on the movie’s brutal violence leading him to give it a bad review therefore missing the didactic message of the film. Once Were Warriors is a film based from the novel of the same name, about a Maori family living in Auckland after moving away from tribal elders over a disagreement over their marriage. The main settings are the Heke’s house and the local bar both housing drunken violence. Beth Heke (Rena Owen) is the victim of domestic abuse from her husband Jake Heke (Temurea Morrison) leading her to question the relationship and stand up to Jake while also trying to sort family relations. There are many sub-plots in the film which affect......

It Used to Be Green Once

...Title: It Used To Be Green Once Author: Patricia Grace Form: short story Criteria: Female perspectives, Maori, NZ author I chose to read this short story because it was written by a well know female Maori author and the first sentences seemed really interesting and made me want to read more. This text is about a large family living in a small town in New Zealand. The family is a poor so the children’s mother dose whatever it takes to feed their family and keep them alive. Whilst doing this she ends up embarrassing her children by giving ‘holey fruit’ and making them wear worn out clothes. At the end of the story everything changes for them when they win lotto. I think one of the author’s key messages in this book is that money doesn’t always make you happy. This is showed when Mum and Dad didn’t change the way they lived there life when they had won the lotto money. “Mum and Dad didn’t change. They were the same as always. “This quote shows that even If you have heaps on money it doesn’t change who you are as a person. The text made me think about how life would be living at the low end of society with no money. Everything that you did would be to save money. For example in the story the children’s mother buys cheap fruit and cuts the rotten bits off ’hey…Who shot your pears.’ At the time the kids probably think they have the worst mother ever but later on in life they would realise that she was only trying to do the best for them. This short story also...

Once the Bleeding Begins

..."Once the Bleeding Begins, the Healing Can Begin"-Tori Amos www.welcometobarboados.com Oppression is defined as the use of authority or power in a burdensome, cruel and unjust manner. When someone is physically and/or mentally oppressed for having a belief or belonging to an individual group, it can be individually demoralizing and degenerizing. Unfortunatly, The human race has been known to enforce their ability to oppress people through many avenues such as an individual belief in religion, a physical handicap or the way an individual may dress. However, for this essay, I have looked closely at specific females that were oppressed through unequality in specific to their individual race, social heirarchy of power, and sexuality. Unequality between male and female has been seen all over the United States. For example, American females finally were given the right to vote in 1920. In a racial sense, whether male or female, black and white people were segregated in public up until the 1950s. Financial status determined your ranking on the social hierarchy of power granting an individual the ability to have a great influence or to f. dFinancial status was signifigant; higher amounts of incomes meant one had a strong influence in society and respect was demanded. All of which were based on the norms of the time. Currently The United States of America does enforce laws that restrict physical harm onto others and enacted an equal opportunity act, thus enabling all Americans......

...and cataract. There is no cure for AMD, but there is both vitamin therapy and an approved treatment proven to slow the progression of this condition in a large segment of patients. Vision loss from the other three conditions may be prevented if the diseases are caught in time: early detection and treatment of glaucoma can prevent vision loss; blood sugar and blood pressure can be controlled so that diabetic retinopathy might not progress as quickly or at all, and cataracts are operable so that they need not cause vision loss. We have a population that is living longer, the largest portion of which is approaching old age. Women live longer than men, so there will be a major increase in the number of elderly women once the baby boomers enter their senior years. Since vision loss is more prevalent among the elderly and more prevalent among women, we have a crisis on our doorstep. Meanwhile, those who will provide vision care to this population are themselves aging: one in three of Canada’s ophthalmologists is over age 55, and medical schools are producing half the numbers of ophthalmologists that they used to. The median waiting time to see an ophthalmologist is almost 28 weeks, even though some forms of AMD and glaucoma can progress to blindness very rapidly. In the most common form of wet AMD, 75% of vision is lost in the first six months of onset. There is only one approved treatment, photodynamic therapy (PDT), for wet AMD, yet not......

I Once Loved a Soldier

...I ONCE LOVED A SOLDIER (mypinkrosary_clvt) Do you know what I've done the moment I've lost you? Do you know what I've said the day you went away? Without words slithered from my lips, my tears just fell and my heart was broken ..and it all started the time I fell in love with a soldier..   An immense question faced me off. What came about? You dropped me off and left me empty. You ripped my heart into pieces. Implicit reasons gave me puzzles. I’m thinking then that it took you a tough time to finally say what you didn't want me to hear. So I made things easy for you. With a heavy heart, I let go and moved on. Undeniably, two of the hardest things I've done to someone I truly love. Now, I'm used to the fact that we're not together anymore, and that maybe we won't be. Eventually, everything will be a part of my past. But beyond doubt, you left a fossil in my heart. Because of you, I've learned a lot or I've been hurt too much. I can't help but shield my heart to love again. I often wonder if it is my way to keep distance from someone because true intimacy is just too bloodcurdling for me now. So I allow myself to let go of the things I fear to lose. So that when he’s gone, I won't feel not the pain of losing him, but the pain of losing myself without him again. Still, I believe that sometimes, the best relationships take place by accidents. Who knows? It's with a soldier again. What learning I've hauled out from the love I once had is that you really need to trust......

Used to Live Here Once

...Used to Live Here Once Brandie Markos-Murr ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Michael O’Donnell November 17, 2013 Used to Live Here Once In the short story “Used to Live Here Once” (Rhys, 1976), tells the tale of one woman’s spiritual journey on her path in the afterlife. The underlying theme in this story is death. Although, “death” is not immediately obvious until the final passage; however, reflecting back, subtle hints were presented throughout the story leading to its ironical outcome. To understand and capture the theme of a story, Clugston (2010) explains that the plot, the mood, and not even the attitude of the author can depict a story’s theme. The theme is the underlying idea, shaped in a unique way that is brought to life through various elements to make the underlying idea concrete. The two key elements utilized in this story were setting and symbolism. Each played a significant role to capture the theme of this narrative. The story begins in a country setting; a woman is standing at the edge of a flowing river. It was a clear and sunny day and the sky was blue. As I read the opening paragraphs, I had a sense that the environment described felt to be peaceful and serene, as one might feel when they transcend into the afterlife. I believe this to be the author’s first hint at the theme, and set the mood for the entire story. The setting is an important element in story telling; as Annenberg Learner (2013), explains, the [setting] “is the crossroads of...

Once Upon a Time

...Mads Præstegaard 2j Engelsk Studieportalen.dk 09/02/07 Once Upon A Time Fairytales have certain characteristics to them. They start out with the phrase “Once upon a time…”, they usually have a set range of personas (e.g. the hero, the princess, the king, the witch etc.), and they, also usually, have a happy ending. The story Once Upon A Time is, according to these brief and coarse rules of thumb, is best described as an anti-fairytale, or maybe as a “true” fairytale. The fairytale part of the story starts off by saying, “…a man and his wife… were living happily ever after” (p. 54, ll. 21-23). This is the way you would usually end a fairytale, so by starting off a tale in this fashion, the author gives the reader a feeling of a sequel or the continuation of a fairytale – or maybe the true fairytale. The fairytale that we usually read could be the frosting on the top of the cake, and the story here is the cake itself, the thick and heavy chocolate masses that make for the filling of your stomach after a long three-course meal. The author keeps stating how much the man, the wife, and the son loved each other. He actually writes “love” so many times that it becomes an indifferent verb, a fill-in word if you will. The important materialistic properties that the family possesses are all listed, such as a car, their trailer, the house, and their swimming pool. They even have help in form of a maid and a gardener. It quickly becomes very obvious to the reader that this family......

Once Upon a Shop

...Engelsk aflevering Once upon a shop Now a day, it can be difficult for new entrepreneurs to start a new sustainable firm, in a dynamic business world. This is because of the huge competition that comes from the big firms. The big capitalistic firms can mass-produce their products and sell them for a low price, which many people finds logical appealing. The more humanistic firms then find it very difficult to compete with the capitalistic, because they cannot sell their products as cheap if they want profit. The only way that the humanistic firms can compete with the capitalistic, is through promoting themselves and their product as an ethically right choice in context to animal treatment, human rights and organically farming. These humanistic values are some, the most of us finds appealing, but not the most of us are willing to pay the extra amount of money to support the businesses who stands for these values. USA have for the last 50 years influenced the whole world with their “success persuading mentality”, which also fosters the idea of the “Economic man”. The “Economic man” is a social scientific term, for how the stereotypical liberalistic man, prefers to administrate his private and business economy, which are by selling for the highest price and buying for the lowest. This factor has an impact, on how we decide to do grocery shopping Jeanette Winterson argues the issue of small contra big businesses, in her essay “once upon a shop”, 2010. She owns a small......

Once I was like a free bird, soaring through the skies, with my wings spread wide. There were a thousand places I could go and a million things I could see. The world was my oyster. The freedom exhilarated me. Now I am like a caged bird, trapped behind bars, with clipped wings. My entire world is enclosed behind the four walls of my owner’s apartment, and the skyscrapers outside my window are the only things I see. The imprisonment distresses me. Once I was a daughter of the most amazing parents. Love, compassion, and respect were all I received from them. They did everything they could to make my life heaven on earth. Now I am the maid of the most heartless family. Car crash, deaths, and desolation, my parents left me alone in this cruel world to fight my own battles. I mourn for those blessed days and shed tears at my loss. Just a few hours turned my life into hell. Once I was happy, smiling, laughing, living my life to the fullest. I had everything I wanted or needed; a huge house, a gorgeous car, and cool friends. Every moment was worth cherishing. Now I am sad, depressed, weeping on the outside, and dying bit by bit inside.

...Khizar farooq 10916 Once Beauty Was A Superficial Notion For Me Now I Know What Actual Beauty Is Once beauty was a superficial notion for me. It was something on which I was really proud of. Something which made me different from others. I was ravishing, unique in every way. I was like a bird always ready to spread my wings. It was my strength, a card which can help me in every situation. Indeed! I was like the sun “The Brightest”. Beauty meant everything to me, a world which I wanted to explore the most. To look young was my aspiration. To look bonny-slim- was my top priority. I used to spend nights and days caring for myself. Buying the most expensive make-up kits lowered my stress. Beauty was the thing I could die for, the thing for which I could cross all limits. I had my own world of fantasy to live where beauty ruled, where beauty was God. Perhaps, beauty was the reason of my existence, the reason why I was still breathing. The reason why I was still smiling. Beautiful people engrossed me the most. On the other hand, ugly people were the one I never loved, never spent time with, never considered humans and always considered them inferior. If I were God I would have never made such being. That is what my perception of beauty was. It was all consuming force, I thought beauty was within me. I controlled it but in reality it was the other way around. I was blind and paid to nothing. I sacrificed my son......

I hated the way it used to do when foreigners came and got all the dignities it treasured. I hated the scars that left behind the bright and shining pearl of the islands. 7, 107 wonders – from the bare feet of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao lies the glorious and prestigious menarche history.

...all of the children they found into a van and Felix, while carrying the little girl, whose name was Zelda, was forced to join them. In the blur of confusion and panic a man persuaded the Nazis to let them go. They were then taken to an underground cellar in the ghetto by a man, whose name was Barney. In the following days more children came to the cellar. Until the day the Nazis came there. And the children were going on a long trip. On his way to a Jewish Death Camp Felix could sense the danger ahead. Fighting for survival he found a fragile plank and broke it open. He took Zelda and Chaya, another girl rescued by Barney, and jumped of the train. The bullets snarled in the thin air. Two children survived. One of them died. Conclusion Once is a very well written and overwhelming book. It tells a heartfelt story of a part of history that is too horrific to imagine. The author brings to us a world we have long forgotten, and does it well. Because of this I would highly recommend the book. Not only is it suited for adults and youth, but even for children, since it is a story of a great adventurer. As a result of this experience I would like to read the sequels of this book, namely Then and Now. The story is told in 1.person perspective and the protagonist, Felix, is telling us the story. Due to this the author has managed to create a quite cheerful tone. As the story develops it gets more tragic because a child is telling you these things. It makes the story so much more......
