오랜만이야

It's been a while. Actually, more than 5 years to be exact.

Five years was both a long time, and yet it feels like it was just yesterday.

I no longer dream.

I no longer write songs.

I wrote a story... once. Now, all the inspiration I used to have has left me for good.

I've succumbed myself with the ordinariness of daily living... surviving. Wake up, work, eat, go home, go to sleep, repeat.

I can't complain much either, because the life I have now and the places I've been to is the life my younger self would only think of as a dream.

But some days, I still ask myself what I could have been if I did not opt for the decisions I'm living out in the present.

Would I be happier? Would I be sad, or frustrated even?

I don't really know.

I'm only here so I can take some things off my chest.

This year has been hard on me, not because of my work. But of the choices I made personally.

I burned some bridges, isolated myself in a world that now I can't get out of.

Sometimes I get panic attacks mid-day or before going to sleep. Sometimes I feel so down, I wish I don't even have to get out of bed.

A blessing and a burden intertwined.

No one else knows. I never told anyone when they meet me. Maybe they'll think I've gone crazy.

Maybe they'll tell me to find a religion, or a hobby, or a distraction.

I don't really know.

I still don't know.

Anyway, thanks for reading this.

다시 만날 때까지...

Quarter-Life

It's been 10 years. Looking back, I have nothing but regrets. I could've been better. I could've fought for my dream, even if it meant being kicked out of the house and living on my own. 

10 years. A lot of what-ifs and what-could-have-been's. Sadly, I'm no longer that bright-eyed girl. My failures have made my stares ice cold and dull. It's too late.

10 years. All I ever wanted was to be on stage, doing what I love... sharing my passion through music. Was it too much to ask?

24 years & 3 months.  I've waited for so long. I don't think I can wait any longer. I'm afraid that if I do, there'll be nothing left for me to show; the fire might've already diminished long ago.

I hope time will give me another chance.

I hope it's not yet too late.

.

I'm back but not for long
I'll paint it black for now
And live in the shadows

The silence is refreshing
I can actually live with it
Don't worry, I'm still here
Just like 'Zhong Ji Yi Ban'
Living in another dimension

Almost There But Not Quite


I can't wait for this year to end, maybe because I feel that something better is waiting for me in the distant future.

Happiness and peace... why are you guys taking so long to find me? :(
