I was going to talk about the importance of peace, but I felt I didn’t have to mention it any more. Because we already know it too well.
In fact, this is out of the question of knowing. What is the problem? First, say it clearly. This is neither your fault nor mine. It’s all our fault.
It is none of your business
Most of us are busy making ends meet. I am also busy living my life. We don’t have time to pay attention.
We have learned the word peace from textbooks and lectures. Also, we even donate to UNICEF or Doctors Without Borders. Get a job, have a family, and raise children. Get old with my spouse.
Our lives were not always happy, but moderately unhappy, sometimes happy. Ten years after my death, at least one person will remember me.
There is very little room for peace in this general life. If there is any overlap of misfortunes, there is no more room. This is the reality.
No one can blame us for this reality
We don’t blame anyone else. We don’t call each other hypocrites.
Because we make up the majority of mankind. Compared to mankind as a whole, the people facing war are a minority.
We don’t have to worry every night that the bomb will blow up our house. We don’t have to worry about how to live after mom and dad die in the war.
So, we don’t think peace is important. No, we maybe think it’s important and we talk about importance of peace, but we usually live off the top of our head.
I’m sorry. This is real. I don’t want to let a little girl in Syria know this reality.
Change actually takes a long time. But I know that the most substantial and short-lived peace organization has achieved great achievements. So, I’m also thinking about pinning my hopes on it this time.
This posting is just my opinion. I want to say that I really respect everyone who works hard and risking their lives for peace.
* I’m telling you in advance that this is just my standard. There is no basis for that. It’s just my cup of tea.
I once aimed to make my music list. Music tastes seem to change from time to time. In my early 20s, I liked music that was just exciting.
Now, it’s, like, more emotional. Now I like music that fits my situation the best. I wish there was music playing then. I hope the music brings back memories.
Have you seen the “Perks of Being a Wallflower” (film)? In the movie, it’s a trend to record and give a list of songs to your liking on tape.
Let’s get started.
1. H girl Playlist
Thumbnail means “This song is crazy.” The thing I was most surprised about on this YouTube channel is that the background is too elaborate.
The mood and the lyrics of the song blend so well that it conveys meaning well. The time is short about 30 minutes per video. I like this channel best.
2. May I choose a song for you? Playlist
The channel name is “네고막을책임져도될까” in Korean. It means “Can I take responsibility for your eardrums ?” At first, I laughed a lot when I saw this. I guess they couldn’t name the channel this way. ahahaa olalla
This channel really recommends music that fits the situation. You can know by the title like”Did you have a hard time today?”, “a lullaby whispering in your ear:)” and “Without music, life would be a mistake.”
3. TAKE A LOOK Playlist
The name of this video is “옆에 타 내가 운전은 못해도 노래는 기가 막히게 트니까.” It means “Ride next to me. I can’t drive, but I can play the music enormously.” I think it’s an extremely well-written title.
4. KozyPop Playlist
The title means “Do you have an appointment? Let’s get ready for 30 minutes. Tension UP Groove Pop (11songs)”
5. essential; Playlist
They upload very hard. Sometimes I get music that suits my taste.
It’s all. The best thing is that I make my own list. It’s great that I can put meaning into it. See you next~
I wonder if there was another book that shocked me this strongly.
Do you know “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki? I was sucked into this book about three years ago. Since then, I have read more than 100 books, but none of them are this shocking.
After that, I met “The Third Door.”
The first time I saw the book was because I was on YouTube and saw a video that someone strongly recommended the book. While searching for books, he became more attracted to me because he was a medical student like me.
Let me quote a book. “Success in life, business or almost any field you choose, is like getting into a nightclub. There are always three doors: The first door is the main entrance, where almost everyone queues, waiting and hoping to get in. The second door is the VIP door, where the celebrities and billionaires slip straight through. And then there’s the third door.”
I didn’t even know what this meant at first. On the other hand, I thought it was ridiculous. Because I’m 99% human. But I felt a lot of things when I finished reading the book in 8 hours and wrote down the part I liked for 5 hours again the next day.
I wanted to live like him! I felt an overflowing desire to challenge. I am going to explain three impressive parts of his book.
If The Third Door was a movie, what would be your 3 favorite scenes? ⠀ ⠀ Excited to hear what you think, @ me … I’m really curious, so I’ll be reading them all 🙂 ⠀ pic.twitter.com/O9CZapQ5xt
I think this is the most charming point of this book. I was in pain with Alex Banayan as I read the book, and I was rejected with him. It’s like it’s going to work, but it’s not going to work. Things didn’t seem to work out well, but he did it beautifully in his new way.
I can’t say everything to prevent spoilers. Read for yourself. You’ll be able to feel a lot. Especially the experience in Omaha, I also shed tears together. You and your friends were really the best at the “Berkshire Hathaway, Annual Shareholder’s Meeting.” I clapped and cheered together.
2. Solving problems in your own way
He met with beings with enormous insight, read numerous books, and tried to find answers. There was also a lot of help, but he solved the problems one by one in a really groundbreaking way. I won’t say much more to purposely wonder. 🙂
There is a quiz. What did he learn most from? Who? Bill Gates..? The answer is almost at the end of the book.
3. Elliott Bisnow, DREAM MENTOR
He has greatly increased the size of Alex’s life itself. Thinking and acting were all huge scale. As I read the book, I wondered if this book would have been born, if he hadn’t been a mentor. He became a friend and a brother.
He was a great man who met so many familiar people by name. What he did as a early 20s was amazing, too. It occurred to me that I could never do it.
I hope I have such a mentor, and I want to challenge myself. I will send 30 e-mails right now. Ahahaa 🙂
I recently read a book about self-esteem, “Self-esteem Lesson, Korean Ver (자존감 수업 : 하루에 하나, 나를 사랑하게 되는 자존감 회복 훈련)” It is written in Korean only. It is a book that a psychiatrist (윤홍균, 정신건강의학과 의사) wrote for his daughters based on the knowledge he gained from his long experience.
In psychology, the term self-esteem is used to describe a person’s overall sense of self-worth or personal value. (Verywell Mind) In other words, it is an individual’s subjective evaluation of their own worth. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself as well as emotional states, such as triumph, despair, pride, and shame. (Wiki)
The reason I read this book is because my top priority these days is to get rid of low self-esteem and self-reproach. This is because I heard this from someone I respect recently. She also told me that I’m enough competent.
When I read the book, I found that self-esteem was really connected to many problems, such as marriage, dating, work life, relationships between friends, and myself. The point was that I didn’t love myself. It’s “self-distrust.” How about someone on your back, criticizing you all day and comparing you to others? You can’t even run away. It’s so terrible. 🙁
My core feelings are “sadness” and “inferiority.” I could explain my feelings clearly through this book. I have a huge desire to be recognized by others. So, I kept looking at other people, and I usually looked at people who were better than me. That’s why I felt inferior.
Comparing my shortcomings to others’ good points, I always lost. I had high expectations of myself, and I was often frustrated. This gave me disappointment and low self-esteem. If disappointment lasts long, it becomes sadness.
After that, when there was a mistake, I started to blame myself first. The premise of my thoughts was that I tried to protect myself by blaming myself for fear of being criticized by others. I also hated myself.
In fact, there were so many hard work. It was a day that was really difficult, teary, painful, compared, scolded, and felt I was insignificant. I was not recognized by those who I respect. I secretly got angry and cried a lot.
I think I actually needed comfort. It was necessary to say, ‘It’s okay, you can do it.’ But now I can understand and forgive. We all had a hard time then, and we’ve walked the hard way together. She had a situation, too. She had lived a life that was not appreciated by strict father, and that was why I was more severely scolded by her.
What do we want most from our lovers when we’re dating? I think it’s looking at me as I am. But I don’t really see myself that way. I will now cherish and love me a lot. “It’s okay, you can do it. You can do it!!” I will trust my own judgment, make my own choices and make decisions. I will believe in me and comfort me, even if my troubles come like waves again.
Rachel McAdams is so lovely… It gave me a fantasy about love. I don’t know how many times I cried in the scene where he spent time with my father. He tells us the secret of happiness at the end. I was impressed. 🙁
2. The Greatest Showman
The character of Hugh Jackman was really attractive. And the movie is the best with the OST and musical scenes. Considering the meaning of the movie, it’s the best movie ever. Especially, in the song “This Is Me,” they was ashamed of themselves, but now they become self-reliant. It means that they had grown up a lot. All the songs are so good.
3. Begin Again
This movie is also one of the best in OST. I have nothing to say. I love you!!
4. Dead Poets Society
Carpe diem! The most memorable scene is when he said “Boys, you must strive to find your own voice.” I’ve been into poetry since I saw this movie.
5. The Intern
Anne Hathaway is a successful young female CEO. She was so cool. And Robert De Niro’s classic charm of subsidizing her with wisdom made me fall for “classic.” I want to be a classic man, who is more valuable as he was used longer.
Hi, I’m Ming Taylor. I am 26 years old and live in Sydney. I came from Korea to study abroad, and I’m a medical student.
But I didn’t write much about medicine. lol It’s not that I’m not interested at all, but I was a little lost because I had a shocking incident when I was 20. This is when I decide to become a real doctor, not just a doctor. I’ll tell you later.
Then, I have a one question. What more do I know when I make a lover, and can I really say I know about him or her? It’s so difficult. keep thinking!
5 Keywords to explain me
My 11 Notes
UN & Peace
Single Startup Company
1. “My 11 Notes”
: In a word, I’m currently writing my 11th notes with all the things that inspire me. It doesn’t matter. I write everything like books, people, YouTube videos, lectures, ideas that I find while taking a walk. It is the most precious treasure of my life.
I started keeping a diary when I was 19 years old. Korea is a country with a very high passion for education. Especially, I was on the top class of the students like the drama “Sky Castle,” which is about students competing fiercely to enter Korea’s top medical school. I had to study 15 hours a day from 13 to 19. What was needed most at this time was mental management. This is when I began to write down.
The most recent writings are “The Great Learning, The Doctrine of the Mean, Confucian Analects, The Works of Mencius,” and “The Story of Art” of Ernst Gombrich. There are still seven books borrowed from the library. 🙂
2. “International Organization”
: I intend to become a doctor and work for an international organization. I’m also planning to have a master’s degree in public health, which is a must, and I want to work in places like Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) or WHO. Why?
When I was young, I thought I could help many people as a doctor. However, while attending medical school in Korea at the age of 20, all of the fantasies were shattered. I got lost, I lived without a destination.
I’m sure there are many good doctors, but the doctors I met were busy spending money and obscene. My values were shocking. Since then, I think I’ve been looking for more and more. Among them, I was influenced a lot by Dr. Lee Guk-jong. He told us that we should leave Korea. Please search for more details. There is a sad story.
I don’t know what projects I’ll be in charge of at the international organization, but for now, I’ve set the direction like this.
3. “UN & Peace”
: I love the United Nations and the value of peace. It is not just about fighting with guns. I am saying the answer that can solve all the problems.
Being interested in international organizations, I naturally became curious about the situation in the world. There were so many problems in the world. I think the problems of slavery and human rights have been resolved to some extent. But there’s still a long way to go.
This can be seen from just a glance at history. Human history is closer to the history of war than to peace. In 1945, World War II was over. At this time, the United Nations was founded to maintain international peace and security. The more I know about the United Nations, the more I’ve fallen for its charm. Of course, there are many criticisms. I was impressed with the purpose and meaning.
Especially, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 are so lovely. It is a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. Among them, the most fundamental thing I think is “peace.”
So, my favorite quote is “There is no path to peace. Peace is the path” by Mahatma Gandhi.
4. “Artistic Sense”
: I have a good sense of design, video production, script writing, and music. I’m not just an expert, but I know how it feels. Since I’m not a genius, I try to develop my senses. I often surf the “Behance” or “Pinterest,” a paradise for artists. I am interested in many things because I have to see and hear many things deeply.
I like Netflix, movies, dramas, and pop music. Recently, my favorite person is “Billie Eilish,” a american singer-songwriter. Her voice and dance are so attractive. I’ll bring the first video I fell in love with.
I already became her fan in 00:35 of this video. ahahaa yeahhh I think each of these will help me a lot when I do a project later or when I plan a campaign, so I am trying hard now. Ah, I also like emotional cafes.
5. “Single Startup Company”
: It has two meanings. The first thing I mean is to run a non-profit startup after I become a doctor. The second means that I will be the CEO of my life and run myself.
I’d like to get a bunch of talented people together and do something big. Something that will surprise the world. To do that, I think I need to live my own life first. Not just talking and useless knowledge learned at school, I really needs real ability. I’m also trying to take a lecture at MOOC like Coursera, edX and MIT OCW.
There are so many things to learn and do in the world! I hope to be the main character of this rapidly changing era. 🙂
I think I introduced myself too long. Well… it’s over anyway! Bye~
It’s been a long time since I’ve sent me a letter. I may not have had that much leeway. Sometimes I live very hard, sometimes I’m exhausted after a lot of work. I used to look back on myself a lot in the past, but I rarely look back these days.
I think it’s an excuse that I didn’t have time. I could have taken the time to do enough. What was the reason? Maybe I’ve lost my “hopes” for myself. I don’t know if I chose the right word. I can call it “expectation”, or “faith”.
I think it’s much harder to apply “growth mindset” than when I read a book. I always want to grow up. I want to work harder and do well. think and try to excel. However, trying is a different matter from actually doing so.
I think I’m having a hard time because I’m not as successful as I think. This is the question of “what is success?” My reference point seems to be too external. If there is something I regret now, I wonder if I could have trusted me more. What if I had respected myself a little more, loved and cared for myself? It may be an illusion, but my inner self would have been more colorful.
Reading poetry, opening your eyes to art, listening to my own playlist, will this make me a little happier? Each man walks his own way. How was your life? Was it a roller coaster? Was it okay? or fun? I don’t think I can assess my life. Because I want to edit my own life as I please. That’s why I don’t feel proud.
Do you think it’s because I don’t know myself well? So the majority of successful people may be keeping a diary and meditating. For me, this is that time to self-reflect. I think I should write it more often now.
South Korean film Parasite has been named best picture at this year’s Oscars, becoming the first non-English language film to take the top prize. – BBC
Only 11 non-English language films have ever been nominated in the category. The cast and creative team for “Parasite” took the stage on Sunday to accept the award for best picture, capping off what was a huge night for the film and a significant night for global cinema. – CNN
On Monday, the director Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite,” a genre-defying film about class warfare, won that award and three other Oscars, including best director. It was a historic moment for both the Oscars and South Koreans – NY times
The Korean people were all really happy and excited. I can’t believe it!
Bong Joon Ho, Oscars Best Director
In his acceptance speech of Best Director, he said “Thank you. After winning best international feature, I thought I was done for the day and was ready to relax.
Thank you so much. When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is that ‘The most personal is the most creative.’
That quote is from our great Martin Scorsese. When I was in school, I studied Martin Scorsese’s films. Just to be nominated was a huge honor. I never thought I would win.
When people in the U.S. were not familiar with my films, Quentin [Tarantino] always put my films on his list. He’s here, thank you so much. Quentin, I love you.
And Todd [Phillips] and Sam [Mendes], great directors that I admire. If the Academy allows, I would like to get a Texas chainsaw, split the award into five and share it with all of you.
Thank you. I will drink until next morning, thank you.”
Producer Kwak Sin-ae also said: “I’m speechless. We never imagined this to happen. I feel like a very opportune moment in history is happening right now.“
What’s the difference? Why did this happen?
I watched a parasite movie myself and even wrote reviews, but I couldn’t really feel the difference. I think, “Is this enough to attract global attention and awards?”
From my point of view, I saw nothing but the contrast between the life of the rich and the lower class, the detailed elements hidden in it and some interesting parts. I’m trying to figure out which part of parasite has won so many awards. I will post a more analytical posting next time.
