Beanie level: Errand boy

So the movie Kabir Singh has an amazing soundtrack but I cant really enjoy because the movie romanticized toxic masculinity. It’s a huge shame really cause the album is beautiful

So I started Lie After Lie yesterday and I’m already halfway through. Enjoying it so far. Also Se Mi can be hit by the ToD because she has no respect for her ex’s boundaries

Wow I forgot a good friend’s birthday and I feel horrible. It just slipped out of my mind. I feel so terrible. Let’s hope she understands

    Don’t worry. Write her/him these exact words and she/he will understand. When my best friend forgets my birthday (it has happened at least two or three times), I know it’s not because of lack of affection, but because probably she not even knows what day is.

Online classes are weird. I feel so sleepy after after I am done with them

    The only thing I’m sad about online classes is that I can’t fully experience the winters as I did before when I had to go to campus 😔

    If I were taking online classes, I feel like I would just put my mic on mute and sleep during lecture. Showing up for class before noon was always a supreme act of will on my part; my default instinct was always to stay home and sleep for a few more hours.

    I don’t know what you’re studying, but I was an English major and I realized after some time it would not be possible to always read everything, so I just tried to figure out what I could skip. If we weren’t spending a lot of time on something (per the syllabus) there was probably a good chance I could get away with just going to class and skipping/skimming the reading. True story: I wrote a mini essay in one of my finals on a book I stopped reading after ch. 2 or 3 (freaking Tess of the d’Urbervilles), and I did well on the final. I knew enough of what I needed from the seminar discussion alone.

    Law school was an entirely different type of learning, and even so, it was still impossible to be 100% caught up all the time. That was more of a time management thing than anything else. Also talking to older students helped me navigate the best ways to study.

    The key is to just accept that there’s too much and to figure out the best way for you to handle it – whether that means more lecture notes/less reading, or vice versa or something else entirely.

      Not an english major but studying social sciences, so yes I relate with you! For one of my courses right now, before my mid I was reading everything suggested, but after the mid I have an idea of what my teacher will focus the discussions on and the exam paper so I just do one reading! I also learned fake reading early on in my freshman year lol. So yes figuring out what’s important, skim reading and asking tips from seniors helps.

    Well, that’s was college is about, I guess.
    I studied Law. Lots and lots and lots of reading and studying.
    For so many years.
    And it’s just the beginning.
    Reading and reading and reading.
    That’s what I do at work all day long.

I feel liek Start Up could have been much better had it been more character driven. The writer squandered a great opportunity there

    Totally agree. Most characters are just plot devices. Only DoSan and JiPyeong have some consistency, and even DoSan is like two characters in one: the adorable and cute nerd, and the nonsensical ML.
    DalMi is just the trophy they will get (DoSan will get), but has no growth or meaning besides being the one they fight for.
    And InJae is such a wasted opportunity.

I just dont understand how nerd Do San is so amazing and so pure but male lead Do San is so imposing. He becomes ungrateful to Ji Pyung and tries to be close to a bit too close to DM for my comfort

    He is very immature. I wanted to like him more than this but I just couldn’t. There are many other ways to fight with Ji-pyeong while being nice and grateful for his attempts to help. Ji-pyeong isn’t the best person to work with with the sharp tongue of his, but I expected Do-san to be nicer -much nicer than this towards him.

    I’m not sure I’ll be invested in their relationship more in the coming episodes tbh.

      And it’s really a shame because Do San and Ji Pyung had the beginnings of an amazing bromance.

      And Do-san cries so easily; I don’t think I have problems with people crying.. but I was wondering if he cried a little bit too much?

    I love nerd Do San but male lead Do San needs to grow up. Usually it is the female lead who is weepily consumed with the male lead, but Do San gets the honor here.

    OMG! I read this after I commented on your other post, haha.
    You are so right.
    The scene with his mum was just adorable, as well as him talking on the phone to Dalmi… and then he turns into the ML who picks a fight with JP? Really? Like, as I’ve lost I’m going to beat you? Ptffff.

    dosan has his flaws but “ungrateful” is not one of them imo. the relationship between dosan and jipyeong was soured by the latter. and the argument that it’s okay bc it’s the truth is so weak bc he can speak his truth and not be a dick about it. given how he has been treated by hjp since day 1, i see no reason why dosan should hold any positive regard for hjp. saying he’s ungrateful is only looking at one side of the coin without considering why which seems unfair to me.

Sometimes you wake up from a deep afternoon nap and it takes you a good 20 minutes to adjust to everything around you.

    You’re being generous with the 20 minutes. I am always groggy for the rest of the day after an afternoon nap, just sluggish. This is why, to my absolute disappointment, I cannot take afternoon naps ๐Ÿ™

    my two girlfriends’ daughters asked me if i’ve noticed how hard their moms are on them, as opposed to their brothers… who, the girls say “they get away with EVERYTHING, but our moms get on us about everything…”

    i had to think about it and agree… they let the boys be knuckleheads by laughing it off at times. i don’t understand it, but most of my asian girlfriends’ brothers were always favored… ‘course i’m of your parents’ age.

    i only have a daughter, so i don’t know. i don’t think i would’ve treated a son differently… hmmm.

    It’s called internalized misogyny, giving men the leeway for many things just because they are a man. It stems from being in a patriachal system (which I think exists everywhere in the world, there can be matriachal households but it’ll take a while till there will be an equal system) and it takes time for women to notice that they are sometimes downgrading their own gender hence themselves. But what’s more important is to recognize it and decide that it ends with you.
