Can anybody recommend some good lazy Sunday songs? I’m in that chilled mood and looking for something to listen to (definitely not trying to procrastinate right now… yeah….that’s a lie)
Daniel Lee, aka Tablo, and Tyler Knott Gregson. My favourite modern philosophers. Who knew that words could have such a profound impact on life and could make you question so many aspects of the world surrounding us and the emotions we experience. As I get older, I find myself relating to more and more of the captivating trains of thought that people express in many different forms and I find myself wanting to seek more. If you haven’t seen it, I can’t recommend Knott Gregson’s “Typewriter Series #667″ poem enough. The masterful use of language is so thought provoking and clever that I read it many a time and still couldn’t fathom how such a beautiful piece of writing could even be created.
If anyone has any recommendations of other quotes, poems or even songs that are so poignant you just can’t stop thinking about them, I would love to hear them.
A friend and I are going to visit South Korea in April this year for the first time, does anybody have recommendations on must-see locations, food and any good shopping destinations or just general tips? Anything would be much appreciated
This song always makes me reflect on the struggles we go through as average human beings as well as the value of life and friendship. This touching song and video bring tears to my eyes without fail every time and the symbolism used is extremely well thought out. If you want to know more, google the meaning behind the song and it’s accompanying video; it’s well worth a read.
99.9% of the time, the concept of forgiveness is clear and is something I abide by as to avoid getting bogged down with holding grudges. Although often difficult at first, being able to let something go is usually the recommended option because well, life is too short. However, the other 0.1% of the time, I feel that harbouring a grudge can in fact make you stronger. Say you’ve fallen out with someone and feel on rocky terms with them and it gets to the point where conversation has become so awkward that you feel you can’t get back to how you were, is it, pardon the pun, completely unforgivable to retain some of the bad feeling so that you can learn from it, and not make the same mistake again?
We taught from a young age to forgive and forget but I think situations vary massively and how we react to them is very much subjective. I, myself, am currently in a similar situation to the not-so-hypothetical one I described with what was a very close friend of mine and am now conflicted as to what I should do. At the moment, it feels like this is one of those 0.1% situations. Does that make me a bad person?
By one of my favourite Korean hiphop vocalists, Parachute is a chilled song that helps lift this dreary English afternoon perfectly.
