This spread was from a recent issue of New York Magazine. Every so often I look up at it, or I glimpse it out of my peripheral vision and I feel slightly better. I’ve had my room redone for a while and I stare at this enormously blank (but beautiful) wall every day and I’ve been patiently waiting to see what I want to do with it. These photos are a good start.
I’ve been kind of MIA around these parts, huh? Things are kind of getting a little busier. My emotions as an unemployed post-grad kiddo fluctuate a lot depending on the weather, the projects I’m working on, and every little thing, no matter how big or small, affect my mood and productivity. And my questionable moods as of late have definitely taken a toll on this blog, as I was in no mood to update it at all. My itch to update has come back.
This picture is a pretty accurate reflection of my mood lately.
I’m currently nursing the sickest skin allergy ever and I’m spending a lot of time cleaning my room out of boredom and inability to concentrate on doing things like reading, watching TV, etc. I don’t know why I have these weird OCD tendencies all the time. I also don’t really understand why my room is so dirty all the time.
Unrelated to the room cleaning, I’ve decided that carrying around a journalism degree as a post-grad in 2011 is one of the most depressing and unfulfilling things right now. My vision of the working world is murky and indescribable.

Hugo’s cover of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems”
Apparently this is on the Fright Night soundtrack but I heard this way long ago on No Strings Attached. (Clearly, my movie tastes are awesome and amazing.)
This is surprisingly good? Kara’s one of those groups I would never ever watch live because they’re just so awful live, but studio versions of things hide all their flaws nicely. And DSP actually puts out a lot of good stuff, but their groups just never really get there, y’know?
Baek Ji-young’s “Love Game”
This song is so good. I guess Baek Ji-young’s latest album didn’t have that it song that could top “My Ear’s Candy,” so her 8th album went mostly ignored, which is a shame because I think it’s one of the best albums of the year.
Fanmade acapella version of KJ8’s “I to U”
Still can’t tell people’s voices apart aside from Subaru, Ryo, Murakami, and Okura, but I really like uptempo ballads like this. It reminds me of DBSK’s “Doushite” and “Stand by U” a little, but maybe a wee bit less depressing.
