The Fault in Our Stars

IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THIS MOVIE AND PLAN ON SEEING IT, PLEASE STOP READING RIGHT NOW AND WATCH IT. Come back when you're done c:

I'm sorry that this is so random, but I just wanted to appreciate this amazing movie! Now, it's not very manly to like chick-flicks like this, but I've always been a sucker for corny stuff (check out my card on Hopeless Romantics for further proof :p). This movie opened my heart and unleashed my inner Hopeless Romantic. Thanks to the tragic love story of Augustus and Hazel, my eyes were opened (not literally of course, I'm still Asian...) to the actual reality of love.
This movie has taught me that true love is possible. There is such thing as a soul mate. However, it is possible to meet him/her and not be together. This thought scares me very much. The fact that one day, I might find my soul mate and we might not end up together. Or an even scarier thought: that I have already met her and lost her. So of course, these are pretty depressing thoughts, but I honestly believe in fate. I say that if it's meant to be, or in this case Written in The Stars, then it will happen. But not just by itself, nonono! Fate is just a guide, and it's our choice if we want to follow it or not.
Not only is true love possible, but it is hard to finally obtain. It took about half of the movie for Hazel to finally accept Augustus's feelings. Meanwhile, Augustus stayed by her side through everything. Even when Hazel asked for distance, Augustus kept trying his best to talk to her. So basically, there is no such thing as half-hearted love. You either give your all or you don't because frankly, if you're not madly in love with the person you're with, then in time, someone else will come along and you will fall madly in love with that person.
Hazel Grace knew Augustus was dying when she said this, hell, it was in her eulogy. This quote is pretty tricky to understand. There can be many interpretations for this, yet what I believe this means is that happy memories should stay happy, no matter who they were with. You see, Hazel Grace had her best moments in life with Augustus. She didn't know happiness until he came along. But now with his untimely departure, she won't be able to have great times with him anymore. However, she still has the memories of those amazing moments, and she is satisfied with just experiencing them in the first place. Therefore, we should also cherish all of our good memories, even if it's with people who aren't around with us anymore. Just remember how happy you were around them and live off of that!
This is a powerful one for me. I feel like I never understood this quote to its fullest until now. I've looked at this quote while I was in a relationship and had my thoughts. However, I don't think this quote is meant to be heard when in a relationship. I think this quote is best used before one, specifically when you are interested in someone else. This quote means that you must look at them and realize that, at least one time in the relationship, you are going to get hurt. There is no way around it because there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. So you must look at that person and think to yourself, "Am I willing to get hurt in order to be happy with him/her?" If your answer isn't yes, then stop there and try again.

THIS.

This is the most powerful quote in the whole movie. Pain is something that we cannot escape. It will come. Sometimes not so strong, other times as strong as a tornado that sweeps you off your feet, but it will be there. In every relationships, there will be turmoil. There will be storms and hurricanes. There will be moments when it's easier to let go than hold on. But, there is something else about pain. IT WILL PASS. With determination and proper communication, even the worst things can be dealt with. But some people lose hope and take the easy way out. The route that seems to lessen the pain for both parties. But what happens instead is that pain lingers forever. Even if we forget about it, a comment or lyric from a song or picture on Facebook will remind us of that pain, and the process will start all over again. Therefore, running away does not cure the pain, only dulls it while it slowly poisons the heart and brain.
This is truly a beautiful movie with morals and life values galore. What's even more amazing is that it doesn't have the traditional "happy ending." And unfortunately, that's life. Not everything can get a happy ending, but depending on how hard we work for it, it is possible, even if it's not the one we are hoping for. John Green wrote a piece of art, and if you liked The Fault In Our Stars, then I definitely recommend reading his other novels. So with that, go out there and enjoy life and all it has to offer, even the pain, okay???

"Okay." Ahhhhh this card gave me all the feels. I agree @cindystran โ€“ย and that "time to grow, time to let go" quote is pretty cool. You have to feel your feelings, let them be and just experience them, even if they're painful. I so agree. I asked my boyfriend for advice on how to deal with the sadness I've been experiencing lately as a result of a big transition I'm going through in my life right now, and he told me, "Just let yourself feel it. Don't resist your feelings. Feeling them is the only way for them to pass." He's totally right. And so are you, @Dynamo. Pain demands to be felt, but it does pass. I love the "you get to choose who hurts you" line too. Even though i am in a relationship :P I think it's the biggest confirmation of love you can get, when you're just like, "wow, this person is making me mad/driving me crazy but it's the best thing ever and I wouldn't trade it for the world." I never knew that feeling before I was with this guy. We had the most tumultuous, difficult beginning (I moved to literally the other side of the world right after we met) but the short weeks we had together were enough for us to know โ€“ย we had something special. Now I couldn't be happier that we listened to that gut feeling and gave things a try. I just hope our love is longer lived than Augustus and Hazel's... :,)
That was amazing.
Love this card! You're definitely right sometimes it's so painful we loose hope and try to take the easy way out. In the end, it'll come back to haunt you. If it takes time to grow, it'll take time to let go, and it will definitely take time to heal.

'Train to Busan' as Critique of Korean Society
I still haven't been able to see Train to Busan for myself, but I found this article on NPR to be really interesting! It doesn't ruin any plot points (other than the fact that there is a zombie apocalypse which I'm pretty sure we could gather from the trailer...) According to the article: Without giving too much of the story away, the film blames corporate callousness for the death toll. The government covers up the truth โ€” or is largely absent. And the crew? Rather than rescue passengers, it follows the wishes of a businessman. Sewol Ferry Reference: These themes are particularly resonant in South Korea, which in 2014 faced national tragedy after 300 people, mostly teenagers, died when a ferry overturned in the sea. Investigators found the ferry's corporate owners overloaded it to save money. And the captain and crew got into lifeboats without rescuing passengers. News media, toeing the government line, originally reported that everyone survived, blamed rescuers for not working hard enough (when in reality the government refused to let them go into the water and rescue the children), etc. The Korean president's whereabouts on that day are still unexplained. Then the MERS Outbreak: Last year, as Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, spread in South Korea, the government wouldn't share key information about where patients were being treated, where it started, and how officials would contain the outbreak. The government refused to communicate with the public, so the Seoul mayor had to go against the president and form his OWN plan to fix the problem. As a result, he's now in the running for next president (since Koreans have lost all respect or trust in the current pres) You can read the full piece by NPR right HERE. Has anyone seen this yet?!

Thanks Everyone :)
Hello people :) Mariah here, with a special message to everyone who follows me, my collections, my meme fam, my quote fam, and anyone who even bothers to look at any of my cards. ^^ To start off, I have something I just have to say. :) edit made by me I have recently gotten 5,000 followers, and a friend of mine on the team inspired me to do this.. I wasnt going to at first, but you all deserve it. :) And a quick personal thank you to her. She's absolutely fantastic. ^^ The thing is, another friend of mine on Vingle, who is also on the team, found out for me that when a new user makes an account, you automatically follow the top popular accounts in the interest you take. I honestly dont care about numbers. I just care about making cards of BTS and making you guys happy with them. ^^ That same friend has told me millions of times that I deserve the number of followers I have. (Thank you for always keeping my spirits up, by the way.) But the thing is... I don't think I do. :) You all have given me so much support and many happy thoughts. I'd be the same me as I always have been even without the follower count. Even though most of the followers I have follow me unwillingly, I'm thankful to those of you who actually enjoy my cards. :) โค The reason why this is tagged in the JapaneseAnime and Quotes tag is because I want to thank all of you otakus and quote lovers who have been with me since Day 1 of when I posted my first card to Vingle, 'Quote #1'. MY VERY FIRST CARD!!! Thank you for sticking by me these past... Woah... 2 years! You guys are awesome, really. เฒฅโŒฃเฒฅ But unfortunately, as I said 100 quotes ago, I'll be ending the quotes at 700. (โ”ณะ”โ”ณ) But the collection will have 701. (Yeah I know it bothers the hell out of me too..) My two year anniversary of when I first posted a card to Vingle is coming up. November 30th, 2015 I believe. :) I don't know if I'll do anything for that, but I just wanted to state it to show how far I've come on Vingle. ^^ (Don't judge me, let me be proud of myself... ;-; ) Anyways! Thank you everyone, who has read this far. :)ย  And those who were tagged for daily quotes.. it was nice posting for you all. ^^ But this will be the last time I put this tag list in a card. โ•ฅ๏นโ•ฅ โ™ก Tag List โ™ก: @joshhsherer @Sugasadamsapple @LeaEsterline @rubychan19 @SimplyAwkward @animelord @AlexisRiver @SteveZuniga @antwonbro12 @LoneRose72 @jazminramirez9 @xigot7forlifex @CrazyOtaku3 @GhoulGasterIRL @MasonBurt @assasingod @crimsonsasuke @xDaisyDaysx @IztimZeugirdor @kouvarisb @DorianBeil @lopleaf19 @Dragonshaow @Dynasty5789 @Nyxxonn @padfoot77 @simpsonsamantha @ZombieDragon @FlotiNMusiCNotE @ChristopherKenn @JackBlink @jeonstussy @Subtilitas And I hope all ARMY are ready for more Bangtan cards from me as I part ways with anime. ^^ Everyone.
