Once in awhile, I’ll try to be more ladylike…oh yea? But that looks pretty vulnerable, and I don’t like it. There are some people in this local place who are still very MCP, or living in their very traditional world. Surprisingly, this group is quite a large group. And surprisingly, people whom I’ve really associated with aren’t that…except one particular fatal group, which used to be my entertainment friends back then. Actually I ought to have seen it coming. Birds of a feather flock together, stop living in denial. We all like to reason out using our own excuses. Why? Simply we can’t accept that some people are really THAT lousy. Why on earth would we want to think of others as that, when all along the people we befriended are people with a good sense of propriety?
I cannot stand tardiness. People who can’t be bothered to pay attention to people around them. People who are only concerned with things related to themselves and all else doesn’t matter. And hence they tend to give slip-shod work, half-hearted attention and energy. Pretty much lack of sincerity. And commitment. And responsibility. All these need to be cultivated since young. Should we expect a miracle when such a person is an adult?
My friend shared with us, that in Korea, upon being married, the ladies are expected to serve the entire household, quit their job and nurture the young. So why is there a need for the ladies to pursue higher education, and in particular get into the university? Well, nurturing the young doesn’t mean any Jane, Mary or Ann can do that. It’s so much easier to hire someone to take over the duties of coaching and tutoring your child, than you getting down to do the dirty work. In Korea, it’s important for the mother to be highly educated, and able to do all the H.O.T. stuffs, critic and analysis and develop and such. Look at the Lee’s family. The wife was definitely a very capable and intelligent woman. I remembered reading about an interview of her while she’s still alive. The way she responded to the reporter clearly demonstrated her intellect…
I think, just judging by the mundane things one talks about and dwells on, we can decipher the intellect of the particular person. Maybe to me, this sounded easy as I’ve met people on nearly both ends.
Don’t talk about mundane things, it’s quite a bore.
Don’t dwell on trivia matters, it’s a waste of energy.
As I’m watching some Kdramas now, at some point of time, I really feel like switching off the machine and stop viewing. No doubt the storyline was quite interesting and exciting initially…at some point, it just became draggy…and I hate anything that’s draggy. Why can’t things be more straightforward-looking? ??? Why can’t people just be straight to the point, instead of beating around the bush, or worse, hiding behind the bush?!
Maybe I just have no patience to run through any drama. In life, I also don’t have patience to deal with drama. I prefer to end it. Such waste of energy. For the Kdramas, if it’s not because of the suave eye-candy, I would most prob be fast forwarding every episode…! Having said that, I do like the pretty settings that most Kdramas have…and the concept. But well, I still like the Jdramas…very much, short and sweet, thinking questions for each episode…sets me thinking a great deal!… ^_^
My dream: Dreams are very important to me! 🙂
