Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

Also started Women of 9.9 billion…intriguing start…I like a heroine who is morally shady and wants to atleast take charge….Le Ji Hoon is playing the slimiest character he has played till date

    Lee Ji Hoon’s character is up to no good. I am excited to see what he will do.

Chocolate keeps breaking my heart in million pieces…this week it pushed boundaries of surgical protocol and reality a bit too much but I am still watching for the characters

    One thing I dislike about medical drama is exactly the big suspension of reality needed. I couldn’t be invested in the surgery scene because I couldn’t believe they let him operate while injured and not even in his hospital 🙄

      I skipped them….I enjoy Cha Young’s cooking scenes much more…I mean yes Kang is gifted but he is forcing himself just to settle petty scores with his grandmother so what is the point of these elaborate scenes…now that they are in hospice, I am relieved because less surgery scenes.

        Cooking scenes are my favourite part! I felt much more for Kang cooking for Min Sung than any other hospital scenes. Joon has to stick to the hospital politics so we will have more hospital scenes.

    I am thankful for thoughtful, intelligent and hillarious comments from beanies that I got to read every day. It always put a smile on my face. I am also thankful for at least a smile a day. 🙂

    Thankful for being able to find people and things that I love and for which I find purpose to carry on living for… I know this is difficult for some, and that is why I am so thankful for it and hold everything so sacred to my heart ♥️

It was harder because once the Manhwa ends, these characters may not ever meet again…accepting characters you adore to just be lost in a void seemed so terrible…I still love this show to bits

It felt like I was graduating school all over again……I mean we all mean well, make so many promises but how many people from School do we keep in touch with

I finally finished Extraordinary You, the last episode gutted me….not because of happy ending or not because of how bittersweet it was…these character may never meet again this way

Extraordinary You followed the Webtoon at last…I was hoping they could sidestep that but it is what it is

    From my experience, it’s not uncommon for PIs to be pretty blunt with their students about their shortcomings. However, scolding a student for an hour is unheard of. Please don’t give up. You’re not supposed to be perfect because otherwise you wouldn’t be a student. You are there to learn and grow, for sure! You can (1) work harder to prove that your PI was wrong, and (2) find support in other sources such as other professors, your friends, lab mates, program director, etc. Don’t be afraid to ask for help! This was my biggest mistake in the first 2 years in grad school. It was only in my third year that I became comfortable with admitting that I was not ok/I didn’t know and needed help. Grad school is stressful for EVERYONE, you’re not alone, and people love to hear that “we’re all in this together”. You’ll be surprised with how much help people are willing to offer when you’re open up about your struggling. Please stay strong!

      It could be the PI having a bad day. This PI needs some communication skills that direct and help rather than discourage students.

      Listen, I know I have shortcomings, I am slow and my multitasking needs improvement but he is also burying me in TA work excessively and add to that I have to do courses…I don’t want praises but I certainly don’t deserve him telling me how much I suck for an entire hour….I am new in US…adjusting took a while, summer was hell because how homesick I was…I was finally making progress….now it feels like what for

        My guess is you’re doing a PhD with some lab work, which was what I experienced myself. I totally feel you, what you’re going through is the first-year dilemma of grad school. I too questioned my life’s choice quite often in my first year and almost got into depression because of imposter syndrome. It will get better with time as you learn how to cope with it (time management is the key!) In the worst case, if you find your PI unbearable, talk to your program director about the option of switching to another group. Several friends in my class did that and they were in much better places afterward. And if this helps you, I’ll tell you my story. I dropped my PhD program after 3 years and graduated with a Master’s. My PI was great and I love my lab mates but I always felt unmotivated while doing research. I tried everything I could to boost my interest in daily lab work but nothing changed. I finally decided that enough is enough and left. I’m now doing another Master’s in a completely different field. My new program includes no lab work, no TA, no PI, only courses that I care and I can’t be happier. Please know that grad school is definitely not for everyone and it’s ok to walk away if you feel like you can’t do it, just make sure to get credited for the time you spend there (like getting a Master’s). Cheers!

He is everything she isn\’t in a way…Sae Mi is lovable though, she is not a villain, she is just forced to play her part as a villain

    Yeah. That is what sucks about her having no self awareness and her main plotline is loving Nam ju because outside of that she is pretty awesome.

I love, love self aware Ju Da but what is purpose of giving her awareness so late into the story?? I like her spunk but she is sooo cynical which is why I guess she gravitates towards Deo Hwa

Anyway only things said Hye Yoon and Lee Jae Wook truly are killing it…..there acting during the Saguek part and the rest truly sell their heartbreak and conflict well.

I think what happened was that Dan Oh was supposed to get better post-surgery……since the surgery never happened there was a gap between what was intended and what was happening….you imagination and your intention sort of not logically getting along in your brain so Dan Oh kept feeling sick in the shadow because in her version of the world, it was something that was unreasonable….once she died in the shadow and her awareness died, that conflict between her aware self and writers imagination and intention resolved

I have a theory about this whole stage shadow……..what if the changes made are like the writers subconscious imagining certain things but at the end the final decision is based off what gets written or drawn in the Manhwa……so that is why even though Dan Oh, Haru tried their best to change things, she still had to sort of die in the shadow to retain her character in the original Manhwa…..its like how writers describe their work sometimes that it feels like the characters they draw have life of their own….its still writers imagination creating those ripples but at the end it all comes back to what finally gets written in the story…so those changes made where subconsciously writers imagination running wild but at the end, its what he writes down or draws that becomes the final event which is why Danoh had to die in the shadow so that story can flow as intended in the book…..it a bit mind boggling but it makes sense because these characters are all figments of imagination of the writer so he still can change their fate when he wishes even if that figment of imagination grows its own trajectory…for a simple show as this…..that may be a bit too convoluted

Dear Baek Kyung and Haru,
Dan Oh wants to live on her own terms which includes her choice to love, her dad, her friends. Stop forcing your decisions to change things on stage or shadow on her

    To be honest everyone’s being a noble idiot. Haru did ask what she wanted and when she didn’t think he was listening she said she doesn’t want to die and wanted to change the stage

      I think its a given that she wants to live from the get go….who wants to die but even then choice is hers to make to change things…what if she was a real character with terminal illness….she could still pray to God for her health….Haru seemed fixated on changing the past from repeating…it had more to do with his guilt…same for Kyung….his actions scream remorse at having ruined his chances with Dan Oh…where is Dan Oh in all this
