It has been a long time since my last post. I should’ve written more because I have been working as a journalist in an English-language newspaper for eight months. Most of the time I was afraid about my grammar, but then I realized that I could never improve myself if I kept thinking about failing. Or the simplest reminder is, nobody actually care about my blog. I’m free to make mistakes without editors and mentors complaining about my vocab or syntax with their bulged eyes and expressions as if they’re gonna eat me up (sorry for being over-dramatic, but sometimes it happens).
From now on, I will make this blog as my fun runaway from the routines — I really enjoy my job, but sometimes there are topics or coverages that I’m reluctant to do. However, as a journalist, you should make every story, no matter how much you hate it, to be interesting and easily reading. Therefore, I can write everything I’m really passionate about here. From movies, music, comic, even fictions, which I love the most but always get no time to write.
And what do I have this time? Well, I haven’t think about it. There’s so much things come up in my mind. How about a song that I’m currently listening, or, should I say, listen over and over again?
I always think that I’m easily influenced by the trends, but I find that the music trends nowadays are, kind of easily forgettable, meaningless as they’re all about party and getting laid in the club lol, and therefore, boring. I can listen to a dance or party song that hits the top chart about four times and then drop it.
I think “Mirror” by Justin Timberlake is a really great song that recalled the heyday of the 90’s Music, yet it is topping the world music chart.
It fascinates me that I love the song because I have never put Timberlake on my picks. His first single of the 20/20 Experience, Suit and Tie, has a wonderful beat but having the 90’s factors makes “Mirror” become so addictive. The lyric, the melody… Simple thing like mirror can give you much meanings. The perfect spouse or lover is someone who can reflects us, always beside us all the time.
“Cause I don’t wanna lose you now, I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me. The vacancy that sat in my heart is a space that now you hold. Show me how to fight for now. And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy comin’ back into you once I figured it out, you were right here all along”
Just read the lyric above and I guess you can see what the meaning of your spouse as a mirror, who enlightens and guides your way.
I hope I can write more and more, as I just noticed that better English skills come from practice. (C’mon, it’s a common knowledge, dude!)
