I can't believe I did that. I was at my desk the whole night with pencil and papers -- things I seriously haven't done in my life; not even for studying hahahahaha.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for: --bah.. let's just skip these things
Your views on education: You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.
The right job for you: You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.
Who is your true self: You like privacy very much because you enjoy spending time with your own thoughts. You like to disappear when you cannot find solutions to your own problems, but you would feel better if you learned to share your thoughts with a person you trust.

I don't know what's happening in pop-creative-industry nowadays, but yesterday, the bookstore was so 90s. Cassette-shaped products and cassette [or other 90s] themed books were most exhibited. For me, it's another remembering. When I was in school, cassettes were the only source to music since I didn't like to watch TV or radio [until now]. Monthly I bought cassettes. The first place to search if I went to any malls were music store. It's few years ago. I can't recall when was the last time I went to a music store and really enjoyed browsing on cassettes. I don't even have any cassette player in my own bedroom now and I don't know how to play my old cassettes because I am surely not sharing the songs I listen to with my parents and brothers.

A week after King of Pop's death, the internet keep updating the news. TV keep showing the old video clips and the radio keep playing the old songs. I don't want to be in the histeria of this situation like anyone else; at least like what I see - people mourning, lighting candles or memorizing MJ etc. But unfortunatelly [or fortunatelly?] this dead guy was part of my childhood. Well, big part.
I'm not and never be a big fan of MJ, but somehow his songs and videos are things I grew up with. I was in early elementary school when every kids sang Heal the World and liking Black or White clip, realizing "it's the Home Alone kid on the video!". I remember wondering MJ's changing face.
I guess, it's not about the person. It's the era and chains of events. It wouldn't be the same if David Copperfield wasn't that popular those days, and the rise of Spice Girls, and Space Jam movie, Super Mario Bros nintendo game. The general timeline that people in my age experienced. On the most personal timeline: how boys trying to play guitar and how I became the coolest girl for playing guitar haha. And other things.
I always have some MJ's songs in my playlist; not to mention other 90s songs, just because it's fun. There's a joy of bringing the old days back to my life; and I believe in your life as well.
It explains why a generation of people keep listening to Guns n Roses, and another generation to Beatles. Or watching Doraemon and collecting Lego. It's something they grew up with. In some senses, we don't want to loose our childhood, do we?

"Cigarettes and chocolate milk; these are just a couple of my cravings. Everything it seems i like's a little bit stronger, a little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me"
