Of all the forms of courage, the ability to laugh is the most …

I found a video in YouTube is completely related with this topic. I want you to watch and enjoy this video. People have courage but when people watch something unexpected,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

 The ability to laugh is the most shocking.

Squeeze out

I like this picture because it makes me motivate to my life and I think all students including me are doing like this picture. Although it is painful while squeezing out your brain, it is definitely fruitful for your life.

Sometimes, we feel like it is hard to hold doing our best. Why do we feel like that? I found some reasons about that. Some reasons come from habits and conviction, and do not even want to change anything, which means it is afraid of something new. The other reason was found when I was discharged form Korea army service, one of my senior said that “if you don’t want something, don’t do that however, if you don’t want leave something and have any regret about it, strive (struggle) with all your might until you die”. I knew such a touching story like he said, but I did not realise what he referred.

That is very important doing my best short every moment until the last moment. Now what I can do is squeezing out my brain and waiting for the sweet result.

The statute of limitations has expired on most of our childhood trauma

Ask yourself about your childhood and what news made you scare. Maybe some people say like it still works for me. The others laugh at that because it was nothing whether the trauma was impressing that period or not.

I think that the statute of limitations means limitation of something happened and if it is expired, it is gone. Namely, it is finished. However, if it is still bugging you, I would like to recommend having any religion and assurance to make you grow up.

I agree with this topic. The most important thing is belief and assurance about you. Maybe some new type of adult trauma will come to you, but it will be gone as well. Lastly someone says that destination is not waiting but selected by you.

The Rebound and Boomerang

It may sound like one of the basketball terms. In the basketball, a player is handling a ball which bounces back after striking a hard court. I like that figures because it never go away from the handler. It just work like vertical movement

While living in this world, sometimes I think what I lost and keep in my life and what I lost or forgot comes up with me like a boomerang whether it is good or bad.. Actually, I don’t care whatever good or bad. I just consider it as another an opportunity or chance to make it up.

I am happy with the rebound in my life, even though it needs to be very careful to handle it

Where I come from???
It is a kind of song for explaining Seoul subway in my home country. 
actually  I would like to recommend  this song to Ganam style. Just listen and feel this song.

I’ve been all around the world and ridden many a subway train But only one’s so near-perfect, I can hardly complain It’s not in New York, or London, or Tokyo, hardly miss them, It’s the Seoul Metropolitan Subway System! It’s really simple for people who hop in from overseas With train announcements in English, Japanese, and Chinese You swipe your card here, for instance, then you pay by the distance If you get some resistance, you can ask for assistance You got your handles, got your dangles, got your elderly seats, There’s a place for your baggage and a place for your feets Gaps are problems no more because of sliding screen doors And illuminated boards inform you moments before you board Rush hour is crush hour ’cause they pack it in tight, The trains start up at 5 am and service cuts off at midnight And the answer when you transfer and don’t wanna get it wrong Is to wait for the the song (the song, the song). Here it comes . . . Line 1 was first, so it’s a bit old and slow, But hey, it goes out to Incheon, Suwon, and Gyeonggido Line 2′s a circular path, the world’s largest on track, So you can get drunk 
Only bad things happen quickly.

When people think of this topic, people may set down it as murphy ‘law. Sometimes it is true that we cannot afford to face a series of bad things or occasions. So from time to time we collapse ourselves due to bad things. But I do not think I am.

Right! Right! Only bad things happen quickly. Maybe you think right that. So you think only good things happen slowly? I would like to say “No”. Because I think it has something to do with people’ consciousness. Maybe if someone says brand new is always good, do you agree with this? It is up to you.

I think you do not need to let stereotype things like this topic strike your brain. Bad things are just bad. Why don’t you let it go in your life and accept you saying like “Greatness is within”?

Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aids

I totally agree with this topic, also want to add my own statements about this. When it comes to being bold, people have their own ideas and perceptions. However, my ideas about it could be little bit a different form others

 To be bold, what do we really need? The first one is an evident goal, and the second is execution as you know. We know the very formal process like that. But my idea is “ignorance” about your plan. What I mean is you don’t need to know difficulties which you worry during the process. There is a very popular saying in Korea. “If you are ignorant, you are brave and if you are brave, you can get it”. My point of this topic is based on this statement.

There has been old popular saying in the world; heaven helps those who help themselves. Now it is time to say “Good bye” “to being afraid”

If not now, then when?

Maybe, most people say like “it is time to do, otherwise you could regret later” about this topic. My idea is also not different from others. But a story of mine is living and breathing with me because I have been experiencing what I took action 4 years ago.

It is so difficult to make decision whether you do or not. Especially, if it has impact on your future or money, you could probably hesitate on your choice. But I would like to recommend “Just Do what you really want, otherwise you really regret. Time never turn around. Now I am studying at CPUT which I chose 4 years ago.

I am going to see the way what I chose 5 years ago whether it is better or worse. I think I will not regret at least because dices were already thrown and I am going to take responsibility about my choice.

What am I missing?

A couple of months ago, I read a Korean book; Decision-making of a winner. Actually, there is some of touching and encouraging stories in that book like other books. But that book was little bit a different for me.

While reading that book, what I felt was that I already know good and bad things to think or take action about decision making. However, I think the most important thing what I am missing is that I never follow those successfully proven instructions which can lead me where I so badly want. Every book about successful CEO or business covers their hardship and miracle. Especially, the most common things are “change” and “renovation”.

It is difficult to change our inertia which we have kept over 20 years. But I sometimes think safe incubators or cradle exist for break.

Watch this space.

People do not understand what is really happening in the world.
People do not observe how imperfect they are.
People do not know how to go where they want
People do not recognise where their love is
People do not believe each other
People do not mind who you are
People do not care what you got
People do not catch the point of view
People do not ask you
People do not have the answer what you wonder
There are epidemic negatives within the world to watch this space and this leads people who live with you to misjudge you and mismanage their life. If you feel bad reading this, I apologise. But…
You got to let it go.
Just enjoy the show

Something people unconsciously tend to do
 (based on my personal experience)

It is still difficult to explain and understand the human mind. Maybe some people who have a good knowledge about human physics or psychology (mentality) could try to say ‘I know you know or I know I know. I would like to say ‘you don’t’.

People feel happy, unhappy or sometimes uncomfortable. It is fine when they are happy, but on the other hand, when they are unhappy, it completely changes the atmosphere around them. Actually, it is fine if only two people know and share a problem because the person with the problem tends to rely on the other. Looking in the case of three or more people.

What I really want to recommend coping with such a problem is that…
Rule no.1: Do not criticise or show no interest if one of you have a problem.
Rule no.2: Do not assume “I know I know”
Rule no.3: Do not imply “I am angry or sad” (you are not a kid any more)
Rule no.4: Just think about what the other is going through and try to find a possible solution to the problem

Ps. focus on the lyrics of Michael Jackson’s song “You are not alone”. It seems you are alone, I am alone as well. People need friends, relationships with etiquettes, manners, love, faithfulness and gratefulness to each other.

My favourite Cat in the Hat book is [fill in the title]; because...

I have to say ‘I am so sorry about this topic’ before I start this topic, I have neither read this book nor shown any interest in children’s books. I will breakdown some part of this book based on some reviews.

In this book, it is important to analyse each character. We were all kids before in some point of our lives, the house is our society, parents are our social norms that sanction and control us. I have not yet understood the role of cat and hat. Do you think it means lucky or the unfortunate one?

I think that every book for children includes some lessons and guidance for their future. If you know what that means and think I am missing some information about the book, could you please let me know?

It just makes me laugh at the fact that I am graduating from CPUT. It seems a bit complicated to explain how I have been here and so soon. People say time flies like an arrow. Yeah, right. It is true.

Honestly speaking, all I can remember for my last three years while studying Multi-media is just driving to Bellville campus from town, staying up the whole night do assignments and catch up my colleagues. Now, I am very happy studying PR. The main problem that bothers me is understanding the language properly; However, I am improving thanks to this subject. I believe I can do what I need to and accomplish my goals at the end of this year.

It is not over until it is over; I will fasten my belt and be much eager to reach for my goals because I still have to make up for some subjects. Bye, see you later in class.

Why I have conversations?

I asked a couple of people this question before I analysed the topic. Everybody’s answer was interacting and getting good knowledge or excellent vocabulary. I am a bit different from them. My reasons for why I do have conversations are explained with these reasons.

First, it is for researching for a fast result called agreement. Conversation is not a battle. Some people fight each other on the web, which is named keyboard-warriors. It seems a knowledgeable battle but it is a waste of their time. Secondly, I have to survive in this country. No one can understand my mother tongue. When I go to shop to buy bread, groceries and provisions, I need to speak with them.

My reasons could look quite simple and monotonous, but that is true.

5 years ago and 5 years later

As everybody has plans, you have plans, and I have plans. Especially, I think CPUT 2012 PR B-tech students have an obvious and unwavering next 5 years plan.

Most of us want to become a professional called PR practitioner, so they all work hard following their plans for dream. Personally, I am also stepping for my ones. We are living today, and already got next 5 year plans. What else do we need more? Information? Research? I would like to say having a time to go back to 5 year. Did you expect your current situation 5 years ago? just think what you have been missing since that times.

According to Steve coby, a day is a miniature of lifetime. On the other hand, a thing that you do not miss anything today is to build up your life. Is it threadbare? This is world goes on.

What makes you beautiful?

Could you please do me your favor? This is to get your mind focused on the topic. First of all, bring your mirror or go to bath room, and prepare a note with a pen. Now that you have everything, try to figure out yourself. What do you see when you look at yourself reflecting in a mirror?

Maybe, you might not be such a beautiful person who needs a plastic surgery, not that rich person who needs to work in a big company all your life without relaxing on weekends for 10 years. If you that kind of person who wants to buy a house, or do not have love, who has lived without friends or companions. Yet I want to say you are such a beauty. Why? This is because of who you are. Look at the sky, vegetation and the sea. They look beautiful because they have life.

I do not want to keep referring to you about this topic. All I want to say is that it is unbelievable how much we do not know about the beauty of life we have been living in the world.

My big fat BIG dream.

Ha-ha! My big dream is to become one of richest men in the world, buy luxury cars, and enjoy the rest of my life. This is the easiest way to answer this topic. It is true that everybody want to become a rich and not poor. Right! Money is important; however it is not my first priority.

I just imagine in my dream working in a company and as well running own my business; as an entrepreneur. It could be funny if I said my business could be a greater than some companies such as Google, Apple, and Samsung. Is it really funny? But, do you think those companies can be maintained forever? Just think about the last 30 years? Who has survived? The environment of war will be changed into new different ways and scopes. And I want to be at the centre of stage of the revolution. So monetary assets will come to me naturally.

This is my big dream.

Conventional is a good fallback position isn’t it?

Yes! It is. I strongly believe this statement. Nowadays, some hold good reasons about unconventional things such as high-tech, speed-up, and invisible social relationship. However, I think all of those things are derived from our traditional norms and practices. Also that is true.

Sometimes, I think we are using new technology and trying to be current in order to follow and catch up this fast paced world. Otherwise, it is very easy to be culled to others. But, we should need to stay alert about what we are trying to accept, this is fully based on human’s practice. For example, we use of e-mail, Face book or twitter to send our opinions or views. At the same time, we are still using post instead of hand writing form. Why? I want to leave the questions for you because our reasons are so different and various.

In short, I would like to ask if you do not have any form of technology, what you are going to do.  How will you keep your relationships? That is easy to find the answer. Just today, why don’t you tell your partner, family or friends “I love you”?

Conferences…in the world

Personally, I have participated in several conferences in Cape Town. Fortunately, all these conferences were related with media and the speakers were excellent. Not only the speakers but also audiences were very dedicated. But I was wondering a bit of how much I could develop myself with these conferences.

I just realised I was missing something whilst listening to the speakers. All speakers spoke professional on their area of interest and communicate or delivered their messages with ease to the people. I am not that professional yet. I felt all they presented was recent and I expected some of these presentations. They don’t know what might happen in the future. We don’t need to follow them, or focus so much in what they said. You are the one in the world. You can create own your strategy and implementation. They are just references like on our last pages in assignments.

I think we should feel that we are the last generations in this world. Each person has their own experiences and views.

You cannot chase two rabbits at the same time.

I think some people agree to that statement, stop chasing two objectives at the same time, and focus on one. It is not a bad idea. It could be a rational one. It is up to you, whatever you plan or need to accomplish.

I want to be neutral on this topic and one of the topics on my blog (You will be there, as you said). Both are not wrong, but how do you see people who do chase two goals at the same time? From their point of view, it just seems to be a difficulty or challenge what they have to sort out.

It all your will. You do not need to show people what you feel.  just want to say to you ‘just keep your pace and think about it; whatever you think, it will happen as you say.

Myself what I want to be

Sometimes, I look at myself when I meet people or am alone at home and reflect about last thirty years. I want to be a person with

People always happy around me
What I feel, jealousy or pride?
Be encouraged and self determined
Feel my heart with forgiveness, sympathy and love
Respecting the power of love

Maybe it could be a mere young adult’s hope. Nevertheless, I still want to be….

A carrot and stick

I am still thinking about a nice way to discuss about it because we all are different from a way of thinking, lifestyle, and environmental factors. I just guess that most of you consider it as only children are needed to grow up or childish adults also are needed to be social. But why don’t we endow opportunity and bareness on this topic for ourselves.

While living in the world, we sometimes need to be praised or patient. Have you heard about “Praising can even make a whale dance”? I consider it as giving an opportunity to myself to encourage better life. As for stick, I think it is a good device to look back upon the past failures. So we can contemplate what we have to do, and wait for good a chance.

So, just give opportunities to yourself and bear what you want. One day, it will be a chance for you and the chance will bring something bright what you so badly want.

Nothing is more dangerous than an idea, when you only have one idea” (Alain).

I think it is dependent upon how to understand and translate it. Some of people interpret it as we need various and different ideas, on the other hand, the others translate that doing nothing is dangerous. However in this article, I would like to talk whatever you think or imagine about this statement either way, you are right.

When we do something like a project, we usually make plans and create strategy for it. We call it ‘Plan A’. While doing ‘Plan A’, we generally focus on it. But what if it end up with failure? Have you thought of it before you start it? So we need ‘Plan B’. If you got problems or crisis with ‘Plan A’, and have ‘Plan B’, your problems of crisis will be ended up prob____ or cris__.

And, as you know, nothing happens and changes, if you are stagnated or have an idea. Just move, create various ideas, and develop them

A block which you cannot overpass

Currently, we are enjoying the olympic games. Some people exclaim and some watch TV with praying minds for their nationality’s medals. Stars who overcome and defeat themselves sometimes come out and get us surprised.

In an updated Korean abbreviation, there is an “Insurmountable wall of four dimensions”;  which means whatever you do or have, you cannot rise above, nor win aginst those walls. Sometimes we easily give up and await another chance, but a star is not readily, accidently, or instantly born.  They are only made of  hard work. And to keep being the top like “bling bling”, they are willing to perspire today.

If you want to be a star in the world, you should not follow the stars but know and recognise what hard work is. and then you can see youself conquer everything, to the top.

Have you figured out the second head fake?

This topic also is chellenging to me. What is head fake and the second head fake? It means indirect learning. Actually, I have not read “THE LAST LECTURE” by Randy Pausch’, but I heard that he created and used that word for his children’s life and dream before they go to peaceful heaven.

I am still thinking, “What did he really want to say to people?”, at the same time I am thinking of him being faced with death. What does the head fake mean to him in front of death? It could be precious messages for our lives. So what is the socond fake for us? Maybe I think some people can say, “my second head fake is blurblurblur”. But to be honest,  my answer about this question is “NOT YET”! Because I am still developing my first head fake, I guess I can talk about the second one after I am done with what I am doing now.

 To anwer “YES” to that topic, I think I need to do my best at what I am doing, make it mine, and prepare the next steps.

Everything is connected!

Sometimes I think about where I am. Is this really what I so wanted since a long time ago? Is it that I expected and planned last year? Maybe this topic would be strange or stupid for some people.

But what I see in this topic is that everything is connected to each other and it bears some concrete results - not ambiguous ones. We call it retribution.

So, everything that you are doing and where you are will return to you. If you cannot see that, just look at yourself. It is not a joke; it's real.

I am...?

I am from South Korea, and thirty one years old, but I am still keeping my childhood ambitions - which can now be described as great passion. I am proud of myself in that I am one of the South Koreans who are staying a foreign country. I am thinking the same as my home country's destiny.

Korea does not have natural resources such as oil, gold, or diamonds. The only things they truly have is passion and diligence within life. A long time ago, the country was one of the poor countries which only received help from others. No one ever expected the current situation. Now everybody calls it the miracle of the River Han. The current features of the country are explained by diligence, patience, and dynamics.

I am hoping that we have a meeting 10 years later because I am being changed.

Andy Warhol said, “In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes.” You can’t choose the 15 minutes but why would you be world famous?

What he said fits into our current world exactly. We can inform people of our opinions or suggestions through YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or personal blogs. But, in this post, I would like to discuss how he foresees the future.

Just before the advent of the internet, we were happy if some of our acquaintances or friends appeared on TV. But nowadays it is not like that - we are not happy about such an occurance in the same way. We just upload our stuff onto the web. Once one of our uploaded things attracts a great deal of attention among people, you can be famous through whatever you choose to display; just like Warhol said in the past. Maybe he was only one of the famous painters. But he was interested in movies, business, and relationships among people. I think the variety in his point of views made him say something profound like that.

Like someone else once said, “Stretch your ideas and thoughts”, if we put our efforts into researching that which we are interested in, I think we can predict the future and prepare something for it..
