New York City (Winter Break 2010/2011)

*all pictures stolen

A few days ago I received a dose of happy: I was greeted by the smiles of little kids being picked up by their parents. I must not have realized on my almost daily walks to the subway that the route passed by a school. Children’s smiles are the best: they are natural and sincere. Kids! What do they do but embody the moment? Unperturbed by grown-up vices: do I look hot? why can’t I be rich? I need a job dammit. Such authenticity; such charm; such life. I would go in a heartbeat to Neverland — take me away from this calculating, dastardly adult world. Kids seem to smile whenever I see them — on the way back from the store with Daddy, kicking a football in the lobby of the Hotel Pennsylvania, at the neighbourhood basketball court. It is a nice feeling, because whenever you smile, I smile, whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Nedostajes

and so it is

i can’t take my eyes off you

无法入睡

cause i am hanging on every word you say

 

and so it is

闭上了眼睛

试着不想你

忘了如何让眼泪停止流下

还好没人看见

没人会说话

 

and so it is

cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me

and your heart starts to wonder where on this earth i could be

that’s alright

alright with me

 

and so it is

I <3 NYC

H&M Jacket: $70

White Dress Shoes: $10

Black Boots: $50

Walking into a Unification Church (of mass marriage fame) Sunday service (with so many hot hapas);

Witnessing white guys fumble Korean names and extol the virtues of the True Parents and True Children;

Listening to a financial report about the church’s investment arm (“The South Korean church is now financially self-sufficient”); and

Leaving with a souvenir (“Kidnapping, Confinement, and Forced Conversion: A Hidden Human Rights Abuse in Japan” — link):

Priceless
