Why Han Jisung Is My Role Model

Just some reasons as to why I admire this boy so much.

Why Han Jisung Is My Role Model

Han Jisung is an 18-year-old boy from a K-pop group called 'Stray Kids.' Stray Kids happen to be my favorite K-pop group of all time, and I have been supporting them since pre-debut. Since the beginning, Han Jisung was my favorite member. Since then, I've gotten two more members who are also my favorites, but Han Jisung is special to me in certain ways, just like the others are. He's one of the only people I would call my role model who I don't know in real life.

From the beginning when I watched him on their reality show, he stood out. He looked dorky almost, but he was very expressive. Then I got to absorb his talent and realize how much potential he had for being so young. This boy not only raps in a unique style, but he also writes amazing lyrics and can hit high notes that are hard for a lot of males to hit. His talent is indescribable.

I started observing him in general, then when I learned about what sets him aside from his talent. He has squirrel like cheeks, and hes very tiny. His personality is full of love and the perfect word I'd use to describe him is goofy.

He always tries to joke with the other members, but they always brush him off or make fun of him, despite him being one of the funniest people to walk this earth. He could literally only make a face and I would die laughing.

His heart is giant. During the show is when I first realized this. When the boys had to do a song evaluation for their boss, one of the members didn't do well, and on the spot, their boss asked the boy to rap when he never had before. Jisung's member, Minho, was very nervous about having to do it on the spot and Jisung noticed this. He grabbed Minho's hand right when he had to rap and tapped the beat for him on his palm so he would keep the correct tempo. That simple act made me realize how much he cared for his members and how open he was. Throughout the show, you could see how much he cared about the members. When two of them got eliminated, he was the first person to go over to them both times and make sure they're okay.

I've had the pleasure of quickly meeting him three times face to face. K-pop meet and greets are completely different than American artist ones, and they're very quick. Despite how quick it is, Jisung made sure every fan felt loved and you could tell by his facials that he cared and studied every fan he saw. I'd say he's one of the best idols when it comes to caring about fans. When he's on stage, he always tries to acknowledge people in the crowd to his best ability.

When I first saw him, it was his first time abroad in the U.S. When he saw how many people came to see him, he looked so shocked and kept tapping his members freaking out over all the people. He is an artist you can tell is grateful to be doing what he's doing and doesn't take it for granted.

For being an 18-year-old boy, you'd think he'd have loads more to learn, but no. He's incredibly down to earth and humble, and his talent is insane. There's no one like him on this earth, and that's why I look up to him so much. I will support him forever.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
