I was pretty damn sure this semester that I was just stupid. My mind just could not encompass the secrets and overarching themes of music theory, but alas! I may not merely have such a disposition! After last year’s physics fiasco, I’ve decided to be lighter on my teachers rather than…well, a bitch; however, I’ve been much too lenient it seems, only blaming myself for this.
While filling out teacher evaluations last week, it turns out my whole class hates him as a teacher. He tangents to unrelated subjects, provides unclear explanations when questions arise or circumvents them entirely, and does not clear up matters very well, even in office hours (I’ve learned that one first had as well).
So, maybe I’m not so dumb. I’m not blaming this man entirely for my lack of grace, but he definitely didn’t help. Let’s just say, it’s entirely logical for my young mind to say it’s better that “He’s a bad teacher and I’m stupid” rather than “I’m stupid.”
But let me just say this now…
GOODBYE SUMMA CUM LAUDE, IT WAS GREAT TRYING TO STRIVE FOR YOU!!!
…I hope my counselor never sees this. We’re working on me NOT basing my self-worth on grades… oops…
In other news: the last time I left my counselor’s office, he said he was going to Google TVXQ and JYJ.
Oh dear gods, what have I done?
What if he sees “Triangle”?! What if he sees “Ayy Girl”?! What if he sees those awful silver stripper suits from “T” tour?!
Emoshinki: (noun) (“emoshinkiing v.) 1. The waterfall of feels bursting forth from the dam of stoic facade upon viewing poignant OT5 or currently apart OTPs videos, images, songs, etc. 2. A completely legitimate way to aid exam preparations, through cathartic and depressing emotional exposures which ensure sleepless nights and increased study productivity. 3. The deepest depressions of life, or what happens during these periods. 4. THIS 5. The exact feelings upon watching this video or listening to any version of the song.

Obviously people have seen the constant arguing and fan uprising over the “N7W” cancellation (Allkpop has been spamming it like crazy). No shit, that was a bitch move. Yes, I agree that JYJ is and has been getting cockblocked from television. No, I do not believe that SNSD or f(x) is at fault; they don’t book their own damn shows.
However, what I do not understand is how a professional entity such as a television station cannot create any better explanation of why cancellations exist.
“We received a call on July 15th that SNSD and f(x), who were the initial ambassadors chosen for the program, were eventually able to adjust their schedules for our promotional event.” – KBS
Alright, that could be a legitimate statement, but why did no one seem to know about this beforehand? If those two groups were the initial ambassadors, that means they were confirmed prior to any scheduling conflicts. If so, why was it not publicized? In no time at all after JYJ’s confirmation was the news flocking the internet.
Also, while the performance was cancelled, it seems that KBS has made no ruling about JYJ’s actual position as ambassadors for JeJu island (correct me if I’m wrong). No statement has been issued as to whether or not the group still retains that position or whether that has also been revoked. If it hasn’t, then a performance cancellation is entirely illogical, as a benefit without the “declared official ambassadors” present at the event makes no sense. It’s like trying to watch Sungkyunkwan Scandal without Park Yoochun. Read the rest of this entry
