I Felt Like I Was A Part Of BTS' 'IDOL' Music Video

This music video is so special to me now.

I Felt Like I Was A Part Of BTS' 'IDOL' Music Video

BTS released a music video for their newest hit "IDOL" on August 24, the same day as their Love Yourself: Answer album release. The visuals of the video are amazing, there were back up dancers and their music never disappoints me. As I was watching the music video, I couldn't help but notice something that caught my eye for a split second.

In my cherry blossom/kanji tattoo article, I talked about what this tattoo means to me and how it's a tattoo that I'm most proud of. What blew me away is that the Japanese kanji "愛" which is pronounced "ai" meaning love, was in their music video. It made me so happy to the point where I almost cried. With this tattoo, I've done some research, and knowing that they used "愛" as a part of their video just puts a smile on my face. However none of the BTS members are Japanese, they are a Korean K-pop boy-band. That's what makes it even more interesting.

I also want to point out how the lyrics of the music video carry a positive message. Since their latest album is called 'Love Yourself: Answer,' loving yourself happens to be the answer. In their song, they say "You can't stop me lovin' myself" or "I'm never gonna change" and it's what people should keep in their mindsets. How will you love someone else if can't love yourself?

To this day, I feel like there are many people who have negative thoughts about themselves. It's important to accept yourself for who you are and feel happy. Not only did my tattoo feel like I was a part of the music video, it gives me another reason why I love my tattoo. I would definitely recommend watching this video. Don't forget to love yourself.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
