A Breath Of Fresh Air

I was quickly browsing The Real World (20+) section on Soompi which is basically for people who enjoy reflecting on life in general and I came across this thread "What Do You Guys Do For Fun?". It's really interesting seeing who uses Soompi. There's such a diverse crowd from literally all ethnicities and backgrounds.. and people who are goths, who dress like fobs like no tomorrow, people who are anti-social, have a huge ego, quirky, married, queer, extremely funny, witty, stubborn, plain out annoying, artsy, immature, very fortunate, unfortunate, attention-seekers, ugly, pretty.. etc... you get my drift. Very interesting. Anyway... hm the way I wrote this made it sound like I was gonna say an outrageous fact or something but no... I just thought it was interesting how, in this thread, a lot of them said "I like to go to the movies alone". Now that's a thought. They claim it's a different experience every time they go. I'd like to try that for one of those epic movies like Titanic... though I can't really imagine how it'd be any different. If it's sad, I won't be "embarrassed" to cry with or without people, I'll munch on my popcorn the same, I'd still put my feet up on the seat in front of me, and I'll laugh when something is funny... and if I was one to snort (which I'm not), I would snort away.

Some other thought-provoking thread topics include "Do You Love Your Parents". Gosh. I thought that was pretty much one of those "duh of course I do" things... and yes. I def. do no questions asked. But so many people don't like their father for so many different reasons it's unbelievable. I guess most fathers are typically the breadwinners of the family so they feel the need to control or what not and don't really deal w/ the whole proper "parenting" thing... sad.

And then there are really sad threads like "How To Cope w/ the Death Of A Family Member". Don't know why I even clicked on that, but I was curious. I couldn't read more than 5.. almost brought me to tears... it was just so sad... I can't imagine losing a family member!! And on this thread people tell their family stories.. like "
Within a 2.5 year period, I lost my mother, brother, and father." GUH. And how one's grandparents passed away on the same day - the Grandma from a long-term illness and the Grandpa from heartache. "My little brother passed away at the age of 18. I keep telling myself that I'll live the life that he could. I'll do all the things he wanted and more. I'll achieve everything he couldn't and cherish them as if he were going to. I try to pretend he's still with me and trying all these things that I am so to as if he's doing it too. So basically I'm living for him and try to be positive about it as possible. That's how I deal with it." AH I just wanna give everyone a big hug now.

Not all are like that - there are some nice threads like "What Do You Think Makes You Special?". Growing up and observing people in general (fascinates me) makes me really appreciate all the different qualities people bring to the table. No matter if someone is annoying, loud, vulgar or whatnot, there's always something (in many cases many things) in them that makes them special - in a good way of course. And that is one of the many reasons why I'm special. I take pride in my ability to find the good in people - the good that overrides their not-as-good sides.

Browsing around The Real World (20+) thread is quite different from the rest. A lot more low-key.. and everyone has better grammar and spelling... and they care more about what they're actually talking about...deeper thinkers. Ah maturity right there. A breath of fresh air.

I'm starting the Kdrama "Coffee Prince". Watched the first 4 Eps yesterday night give it a 7/10 so far. I'd give it .5 more if the characters were better looking.

There's too much to see in LA! Gotta cut it down... we're not there for long enough!
