Hello. ^^ 안녕하세요. ^^ So, today was my first day of school. (I'm a Junior! Yay!) It went pretty well. ^^
In English class, we had to do this activity where we choose a shape that best describes us. The choices were: • Circle • Triangle • Square • Squiggly line
Here is what I wrote: "The shape that best describes me is a squiggly line because I am very weird and outgoing. I have a wide variety of interests. I like to listen to K-Pop and J-Pop, I like to watch Anime, I love Korean/Japanese fashion, and I love Asian culture."
Of course, they asked, "What's K-Pop/J-Pop?" I simply told them, "Korean music and Japanese music."
I thought everyone was going to be shocked and make a big deal of it, but to my surprise, they said, "That's pretty cool." I told them about how I am learning Japanese and Korean, how I plan on studying abroad in Japan or South Korea.
I know that there are K-Pop fans who keep their interests to themselves.
They're afraid of what other people will think of them.
My advice to you is, don't care about what other people think. Just be YOU!
It's okay to be different. It's okay to be unique. You never know, many other people might have the same interests as you do.
I've hid my interest in K-Pop for years. Since I was in 7th grade actually.
I thought people would bully me. I thought my friends wouldn't want to be my friends anymore.
What I did today, was huge for me. I actually built up enough courage to let everyone know the REAL me.
So always be yourself.
Make new friends.
Don't ever be afraid to show people the real you.
You never know how many cool people you can meet.
Be you! ❤️❤️❤️
